Prancercise: The totally '80s workout that's finally hot to trot
Joanna Rohrback of Coral Springs, Fla., came up with her idea for a horse-inspired dance-walk workout in 1989. Now, thanks to RU-clip, it's finally catching on.
Joanna Rohrback invented a revolutionary workout called Prancercise in 1989 and it's just now catching people's attention on the internet.
Rohrback describes this entertaining exercise program as "a springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse's gait and is ideally induced by elation."
In the video, Rohrback shows four forms of Prancercise (the gallop is my personal favorite) so you can switch up the routine, or as she says it, "cut the noose and let it loose."
She has also written a book that is called, Prancercise: The Art of Physical and Spiritual Excellence.
The description reads: "To be really fit we need to consider more than just ourselves; we need to also consider the conservation of the environment (as through vegetarianism), and non-violence, through our thought process and behavior. This book is a true literary resource well researched and documented, not just propaganda. It's a recipe for fitness, health, and self-fulfillment!"
One customer said the book finally let them experience their "inner-horse."
