I am part of a large urban audience that conveniently skip the stairs to push in with the crowd towards the elevators, be it the Metro stations, shopping malls or even office buildings. As a result when the stairways never become cleaner or accesible, the health-level of a typical urban professional deteriorates. Hence the challenge.

For one month, no elevators for buildings of 5 storeys or less Challenge rules

  1. Use stairs instead of elevators for buildings of 5 storeys or less.
  2. Do not use escalators at the Metro or railway stations, find and use the stairs, instead.
  3. Not all types of physical activity are suitable for everyone. Users take Challenges and training advice at their own personal risk.
