Cannot get enough of this.

What have I been up too since the prolific China blogging? Who cares. Watch this video.

First of all, person proud of their fitness, you may go ahead and give that up right now for 1 of two reasons. 
  1. You are not as fit as anyone on the 1989 Aerobic Gold Medal Team. Therefore, you should give up immediately out of shame. 
  2. There is not a chance in this world your pride can even come close to even the least proud, most self conscious, dude who forgets a dance move in back at 43 seconds in.
Right at about 17 seconds in I realized "wow, and I thought I was committed to something, I guess not." 17 seconds. That's all it took for me to realize my recent self loathing about my cycling career was misplaced, and I lack the commitment it takes to be even an Aerobic Champion in 1989 before the advent of the Vitamix or the paleo diet.

I think it is also important to note that all of these people eat gluten, because this is before 2014, so take that fitness buffs.

We can all learn so much from this video.
  1. We should all aspire to be the dude in the front of a 45+ person 80's Aerobic dance team. And when your moment to do the slither step comes on competition day, you take all those years of preparation and dedication, and deliver. Deliver with a smile. You did it. You won.
  2. Hop run every where you go, while clapping.
  3. When you snap and shuffle, give us a big kissy face that says "yea, looks good, dont it?"
  4. Dance like nobody's watching, or, dance like the dude at 1:18, either way, the message here is to not worry about what anyone thinks. Even if they think "Holy __"
  5. If at first someone steals your "all lined up and rotating" camera pose, try, try again.
  7. Dear wedding not-dancers, find a partner, and do whatever it is they did at 1:56
  8. Finish everything you do in life with a flex pose.
  9. Kick fabulously. 
  10. Classy =  Big hair and shoulder shrugs. Dirty = Big curly black hair and.... (see 2:24)
I cant get enough of it. Im sure my roommate is thinking that I have a problem with Taylor Swift, who I generally have no opinion about, however I am grateful she exists even if this is her only contribution to my life. 

So, the next time you are stressing about, well, anything, I prescribe this. People are awesome, and if you work hard enough, you can lead 45 people dressed in the greatest of spandex to a title at the 1989 Aerobic Dance Championships.
