Would you believe us if we told you that there’s a place so dedicated to good physical health, it’s willing to give out free food to get you to exercise?
David Lloyd Clubs, a popular fitness chain in the U.K., is launching a pop-up café in London this week that’ll do just that. From January 11 to January 13, you can check out café Run For Your Bun, order anything on their menu and then skip the payment. All they ask for in exchange is that you complete a six-minute high intensity workout before eating.
Although the exercises–one minute on their rowing machine, a minute on a bike machine, another minute on a treadmill, 60 seconds of sit-ups followed by squats and lunges–seem easy enough, you can only rest for 30 seconds between each one, so we’d be surprised if you don’t break a sweat.
Planning a trip to London any time soon? Reserve a ticket online here (it’s currently sold out, but more tickets will become available on Wednesday).
And if you ask us, the menu doesn’t look half bad either. It includes the following healthy options:
- Smashed avocado with cherry tomatoes, goats cheese, chilli and lime on toasted wholemeal bread
- Giant couscous with apricots, raisins, pine nuts, lemon, coriander and fresh basil with a balsamic dressing
- Grilled chicken breast burger with tomato, red onion and garlic mayo
- Pita pockets with mixed salad and a choice of smoked salmon or grilled halloumi filling
The café aims to inspire workers to increase their physical activity during the work day while eating healthy–and we feel pretty inspired just from hearing about it.
If there’s one way to eliminate obesity and office inactivity, it’s this.
