I absolutely love this kind of “guerilla” exercising.  You don’t need a gym full of expensive machinery to get you fit and healthy.  All you need is your own bodyweight, the environment around you and the indomitable will to do it (click here for examples).

Having said that, I would be doing better exercises than some of those shown on this video…but I think it is clear that they were taking the piss for the cameras!
