Everybody, Prancercise!

Not into Zumba? Can’t do CrossFit?

Have no fear, a new workout is here.


What’s Prancercise?

Here’s how creator Joanna Rohrback, 61, describes it: “A springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse’s gait and is ideally induced by elation.”

There’s no way my words can do this workout justice.

Just watch Rohrback’s 5-minute YouTube video to learn the four modes of Prancercise – walk, trot, gallop and shadow box.

Rohrback also has a book about Prancercise.

Here’s the cover:
