Prancercise: A fitness workout

A woman named Joanna Rohrback invented Prancercise® in 1989, and describes the fitness workout as “a springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse’s gait and is ideally induced by elation.”


Unfortunately the unique exercise routine never caught on. It could be that she was just ahead of her time creating an outdoor workout that you couldn’t follow unless you had a portable video device. OR it could be because you look absolutely ridiculous when prancercising.


Joanna is quite the rhymer, no? My favorite move is the Prancercise Gallop. There’s even a book (with a pretty epic cover photo) if you really want to study the art of Prancercise.

Thanks Sarah for sending this!
