The best motivation for spinnig or running – high adrenalin boost!

Premium Rush is a 2012 American action film on bikes directed by David Koepp and written by Koepp and John Kamps.

A bike messenger is chased  – around the over-crowded streets of New York City – by a corrupt police officer who wants an envelope the messenger has.The title refers to the extra charge for fast delivery and it delivers also the film’s and yours adrenaline boost.

“Premium Rush” is a breakneck chase movie about the daredevils who work as Manhattan bicycle messengers. With a map of the city imprinted in their brains, they hurtle down sidewalks, run red lights, go against traffic, jump obstacles and insist on using bikes without brakes. Whatever they’re paid, it’s not enough. If one hits your baby carriage in a crosswalk, you may not see it that way.

It shows messengers speeding fearlessly into traffic and threading their way through trucks that could flatten them.

The film has a nonlinear narrative. It contains numerous flash-forward and flashback cuts, indicated with an overlaid digital clock showing the time advancing rapidly forward/backward to the next scene.

It is perfect to watch it while spinning or running on the treadmill.
