MANILA, Philippines – Earn money while burning fat.

There are people who get too lazy to run a mile because they do not have someone to run with them. And China has found a way to motivate these sluggish individuals – by hiring a “running mate.”

A well motivated and fit stranger can run with you in exchange for money. This might be a best-job-ever for someone who embraces running in their lifestyle.

As reported by Global Times, those who are employed in these job are not professionals, but mostly students. These students reportedly earn 3,000 yuan (P21,964.97) a month as professional running partners who help white collar workers get in shape with a little old-fashioned encouragement.

Could this be a solution to the increasing rate of obesity and deaths caused by inactive lifestyle?
