Exercise in Hanoi – level 3

Exercise in Hanoi – level 3

01-04-2016 15:00

Well, that's one way to stay in shape! These market vendors in Hanoi have decided, because they can't afford the gym and don't have time to exercise, to take matters into their own hands and feet, and dance themselves fit at work.

Some say they are too tired or have too little money to work out traditionally, so they bought a speaker so everyone can join in and learn from each other. Even the customers have a go.

Vietnam's capital is known for its unique exercise culture – even in the early hours, every inch of the park and pavements are taken up by people from all walks of life partaking in their exercise of choice. From classic running and yoga to more creative routines using benches and trees as workout props and shouting out loud to help with breathing.

These savvy market vendors have proven there really is no excuse not to get your body moving.

Difficult words: vendor (a seller or a trader in the street), take matters into one’s hands (to do something), people from all walks of life (people with different jobs and from different levels of society), prop (a thing that helps you do something), savvy (clever).
