Just try listening to The Greatest Showman soundtrack without grinning, bursting into song and/or whirling around the room. Impossible, isn't it?

Now – add some endorphins into the mix.

YouTuber Kyra Provost (aka Kyra Pro) is combining the power of epic soundtracks with exercise on her channel. One of her most popular vids is her Greatest Showman full-body cardio dance workout. How could it not be, with hits like The Greatest Show, The Other Side, This Is Me and Rewrite the Stars on the playlist?

Provost, from Ottawa, Canada has been posting videos like this one to her channel since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020, in the hope of spreading some much needed feel-good vibes.

'I have a little bit of an obsession with making people happy,' she told WH. 'And when the lockdowns started all over the world I just knew I wanted to do something to spread some joy.'

Facing her own mental health struggles in lockdown, she was struggling to find the motivation to exercise,' she confessed. Stumbling upon some fun dance-based workouts on YouTube was the key to getting her moving, so she decided to create her own.

'In my first video, I combined my love for Disney, dance, and fitness. That video blew up and it was incredible! My goal was always to make people happy and healthy during such a difficult time.'

Since then, she's created several different cardio dance workouts, based on the music requested by her growing list of subscribers.

Naturally, The Greatest Showman was one of them. The 15-minute workout features exercises like squats, lunges and of course, plenty of fist-pumping. P.T. Barnum (the movie version) would be proud.

Provost is not a personal trainer, but we've had the session vetted by a PT who feels it is a safe cardio workout.
