Joanna Rohrback, that quirky exerciser who gave the world Prancercise, is back, and this time she’s prancercising among some horses with a partner, Victor Cutino of Peaceful Ridge horse sanctuary in Davie, Fla.
The video is just as spectacular as you’d expect, but there are two things you should know about Mr. Cutino before watching. 1. He’s wearing zebra-printed tight pants. 2. Said paints very much accentuate his horse-like bulge.
Now go forth and Prancercise.
Nikki M. Mascali is editor of TheBlot Magazine.
She’s aware that people think her exercise routine “Prancercise” is “goofy,” and that by extension its founder must be “spooky and goofy and weird and wacky. I say bring it on. I love it. Look at all the attention it’s getting me. If I wasn’t all those things, I wouldn’t be who I am.”
She also wouldn’t be an Internet sensation, which is something of an understatement. Since Rohrback recently revived the hilariously original aerobic routine she created in 1989 but shelved for more than two decades, the Coral Springs, Florida, woman has been bombarded with so many clicks at her website that it crashed Wednesday, and she’s scrambling to figure out how to add more server capacity. She can barely keep track of the interview requests galloping in. It’s such a big deal that its founder can’t find the time to prancercise.
“I didn’t even get to do it today, and I’m so upset about it,” Rohrback told The Daily Beast. “I can’t even do all the interviews. I’m going wacko.”
Wait, what’s prancercise? Have you been living in Pyongyang or something? It’s an exercise routine inspired by horses, featuring such moves as “the prancercise gallop” and “the prancercise box” as well as some incredible rhymes by its instructor and founder, Rohrback, decked out in a crisp salmon jacket and some very revealing white pants:
“We’re gonna really cut the noose and let it loose, with the prancercise gallop.”
“It’s better to be punching into space than in your face.”
