It might actually make you miss P.E.

Posted on

Jared Paschall is a gym teacher at Harvest Elementary School in Harvest, Alabama who made a creative cardio routine to Silento's "Watch me (Whip/Nae Nae)" and it's going viral.

Paschall originally uploaded the video of his students doing the routine in gym class on his YouTube channel. It was later posted to Facebook, where it's been viewed nearly 20 million times.

In an interview for AL.com, Paschall said, "Since they loved the song so much and many of them already knew some moves, I decided to incorporate exercise into music and get them excited about doing a cardio workout." Paschall also said in the interview that he filmed his students demonstrating the dance workout so that other teachers can try it out in their schools.

The routine starts out with the classic whip and nae nae moves.

The kids are adorably out of sync, but still totally crushing it.

But then, they whip out some jumping jacks!

And they follow the chorus with some crazy high knees.

They even start breaking it down with push-ups!

Whether you're sick of this song or not, you've gotta give them props for packing all this creativity and cardio into one jam.

Paschall told AL.com he has even written a letter to first lady Michelle Obama asking for the move to be a part of her "Let's Move!" initiative to combat childhood obesity.
