    (USA TODAY) -- Russia has an interesting way to promote the upcoming Olympics.

    A vending machine has been set up at one of Moscow's subway stations that allows people to earn a free ticket by doing squats.

    People who do 30 squats in front of this machine will get a free ride - which usually costs around 92 cents.

    The point? To get people excited about sports, fitness and the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia slated to take place in February.

    The initiative is being carried out by the Russian Olympic committee and the vending machines will be available for the next month.

    Would you do this? Let us know in the comments.
