Richard Simmons has just been shown up by Johanna Rohrback, who describes her one-of-a-kind workout plan as "a springy, rhythmic way of moving forward, similar to a horse's gait and is ideally induced by elation."

Rohrback first introduced her eccentric exercise program back in 1989 but, for reasons unknown, people were not interested in galloping like a horse to lose weight. Like almost all trends from the past, "Prancercise" is now making a comeback.

The aptly named fitness regimen consists of four different "prance"-inspired speed settings including the walk, the trot, the gallop, and the "prancercise" box. Individuals should tailor the prance to a level of intensity that fits their ability, and should make sure to strap on some truly 1980s-inspired ankle weights.

If you're still not certain "prancercising" is the right workout for you, explore the details of this exercise routine in Rohrback's book Prancercise: The Art of Physical and Spiritual Excellence, described by her as "a recipe for fitness, health and self-fulfillment!"
