If you enjoy fun dance cardio workouts, Emily Thorne’s YouTube channel EmkFit will be your cup of tea. From hit musicals to Disney hits, she’s often drawing inspiration for her workouts from movies, and some of her latest videos happen to be inspired by beloved films that incorporate dancing.
Step Up was a true sensation when it come out in 2006, and it produced several sequels in the years to come. None of them lived up to the original film starring Channing Tatum, which served as inspiration for this workout, featuring hit songs from Ciara, Youngbloodz, and more.
Cheer/Bring It On
If you have a soft spot for cheerleading movies and TV shows, this workout will knock you off your feet. It features songs from the hit Netflix documentary Cheer and the cult teen comedy Bring It On, which make a perfect workout playlist choice for an intense workout.
Before making workouts inspired by the 2000s, Thorne made sure to pay homage to some timeless classics. Dirty Dancing has proven to be a perfect fit for one of her workouts, and its hits “Be My Baby” and “Time Of My Life” made this video super-fun to train to.
