How to Burn Calories on the New York Subway

For every commuter that suffers the frustrating daily commute via train, bus or car there is an exercise plan laying just waiting to be exposed. The journeys that take place each day on the New York Subway network reveal enormous opportunities for the inhabitants of New York, and tourists alike, to remain physically active and works towards a healthier existence. Health website working with licensed physician, Wayne Osborne, has created a full-blown map of the New York Subway complete with a calorie count between each stop.

The newly presented information is seen by Dr Wayne Osborne as a penitential means to an end for common health concerns that arise so often from immobility and lack of exercise, such as heart disease, respiratory problems and even diabetes Type 2.
