Free MRT Ride From Tampines & City Hall If You Do 20 Squats In 40 Secs

Do Squats For Free MRT Ride From Tampines Till 4 April

Those who frequent Tampines MRT station may have noticed this set-up on their morning commutes.


If you’re a fitness enthusiast, you may just get your next train fare covered. Here’s how it works.

Squat 20 times for free train ride

You will have to do 20 squats in 40 seconds. That’s a challenging timing on par with our NAPFA or IPPT tests, by the way.


Successfully completing the challenge wins you a million dollars — in your dreams.

You’ll get a free single-trip same day usage ride on the MRT!

Always skip legs day?

If you’re a squat noob who always skips legs day, never fear.

Prudential’s set-up seems to include a virtual demo on how to execute a perfect squat.


Cheating isn’t allowed either, as a staff member will be watching your every move like a hawk, to make sure your hamstrings touch those calves every time.

But do note that “Terms & Conditions” apply. So if anyone is being too pushy with you, just head right through the gantry where they can’t follow you.

City Hall MRT is next

We’re not sure if your legs – or our trains – will give way first, but we aren’t going to say no to free train rides.


Plan to head down to squat your way through your next train ride? Here’s where to expect the challenge to hit next.

Tampines MRT

Dates: 27 Mar-4 Apr
Timing: 7am-10pm

City Hall MRT

Dates: 4-17 Apr

Since there are people squatting on trains anyway, perhaps it’s finally time to put all your training to good use.
