Prancercise your way to health

Prancercise inventor Joanna Rohrback video goes viral and has Prancing parody

The fitness revolution of 2013 is here, although it was actually invented in the late 80s by Joanna Rohrback. Here’s the low down on the fitness craze sweeping the world, Prancercise.

‘So, let’s stop talkin’ and do some walkin’

But what is it? Rohrback explains it as, ‘a springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse’s gait and ideally induced by elation’… and she isn’t wrong. Those of us who have tried Prancercise out have found it easy wonderfully easy to do, fun and leaves you feeling rejuvenated.

Rohrback wanted to find a form of exercise for fitness fanatics who perhaps found the heavy foot falls of jogging and weight lifting too much of a strain on their bodies. Also, she says that, ‘This form of movement, along with dietary and spiritual principles can create the most satisfying, holistic and successful fitness program one could hope to experience’.

If you are unsure of doing it in public because you are worried about looking a bit daft, just find a quiet spot, plug in your headphones and try it out. You’ll be surprised at how good you feel after the first few trots.

But how do you do it? Well, rather than us telling you, we’ll let the expert do the talking… and, as she would say:

‘So, let’s stop talkin’ and do some walkin’
