Moscow’s pensioners exercise in open air

When the temperature plunges in Moscow, you usually only have two options: to be snug at home or take to the streets and shiver. Now city pensioners are setting an example by choosing something new.

Hundreds have gathered to try a novel and healthy way to stay warm and cheerful.

They jumped, crouched and danced under the guidance of fitness instructors.

Organizers plan to hold the exercises every week to brighten up the pensioners’ weekends and keep them active and healthy.
