This Guy Dancing To Michael Jackson On The Treadmill Proves That Gyms Now Officially Come With Even More Pressure To Perform (Great.) — VIDEO
Look, I can barely stay upright on a moving treadmill when I'm walking on it, so treadmill dancers are a mystery to me. After I saw Carson Dean dance to "Uptown Funk" on the treadmill a few months ago, I almost decided to give up on treadmills altogether. But now that I've seen his new contender dancing to Michael Jackson on the treadmill, I'm officially, finally, super duper done with trying to look competent on these machines. Gyms should basically just be repurposed into giant stages so we can watch these dancers do their thing, because I feel way more fulfilled in my human life watching them go at it than I ever do after a workout.
Personal trainer Trent Ruban of the GoodLife Fitness Center in Ontario is the star of this video, and he is so boss that he should only ever teach this in personal training sessions from here on out. If someone taught me sick moves like that, maybe I'd be into exercising, too. He uses the treadmill's momentum for all sorts of slick dancing that would make any normal human nervous, but I'm guessing if you're delving into this brand of exercise art, you've already surpassed the point of "normal".
Here's the video of Ruben's performance:
