We will be honest with you. In recent months amid the coronavirus outbreak, it's been harder than ever to stick to a workout routine. Let alone, a get-off-the-couch routine. It's not for lack of effort: We've tried streaming yoga videos, we've tried lifting five-pound dumbbells until the cows come home and ye olde Alexa alarm rang, and we've even tried instituting a plank challenge complete with a Google spreadsheet.

Even though we know how important exercise is to our physical and mental health, it feels like it's never been more of a struggle to break a sweat. Well, dear readers, we're pleased to report we've found some music for your (Mickey or Minnie Mouse) ears: You can now take a 20-minute full-body high intensity interval training (often dubbed "HIIT") and hip hop dance workout on YouTube whenever you please.

This wonderful find bubbled into our field of vision courtesy of lifestyle website SimpleMost, and trust us when we say it's going to make you want to throw on your workout clothes pronto. The workout session is led by personal trainer Emily Thorne on the That Disney Girl YouTube channel, which is hosted by Disney enthusiast Alessa.

The "HIIT Hop" workout is conducted with Disney tunes from "Hannah Montana," "High School Musical 2," "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen," and more, blasting as you squat, shake, and shimmy to your heart's delight.

We think we just found our new favorite way to bust a move. Alas, no more excuses, friends, it"s time to hit play and turn the volume up for a good, good time, and a great workout.
