Sometimes the best way to commit to a workout regiment is to tell a bunch of people about it, and then let the fear of being labeled 'The Guy Who Talks a Big Game About Getting Into Shape But Never Follows Through" take over.

That's what St. Paul, Minnesota resident Scott Jorgenson is doing, times a few thousand.

Jorgenson, who is portly and admits he is out of shape, is in the middle of living for a month inside a glass apartment, situated in Minnesota's famous Mall of America. During his stay, Jorgenson will work out three-to-five times a day, under the watchful eye of all the mall's patrons.

There is also a website where folks can track Jorgenson progress, and vote on what exercise Jorgenson should try next.

It's all part of a greater Blue Cross Blue Shield Minnesota campaign to encourage people to get more exercise. Below, watch this local news report to learn more about Jorgenson's life in a glass house.
