    Why is it so mesmerizing?!

    Let's be real, who among us hasn't pretended to be Ariel while swimming around at some point?

    Those undulating body rolls! That tail!

    Well, we're all in luck, because there's a new workout series on YouTube that combines swimming with mermaid tails to create a full-body workout that looks actually incredible.

    Fin Fun Mermaid Tails worked with USA Swimming–certified coach Christine Dustin to create the high-impact but joint-friendly fitness routine, which includes all of the flips, body rolls, and dolphin kicks we associate with mermaids.

    "Like swimming, mermaiding is a full-body workout, but it especially focuses on the core muscles," Dustin told SELF. "Water provides a resistance you don’t get on land, while also giving a low-impact environment that leads to few injuries. The workout strengthens your heart, increases your lung capacity, and improves your flexibility, [in addition to working muscles throughout] your entire body."

    The more than 50 colors and styles of tails come in children's and adult sizes, start at $34.95, and range from size XS to XL.

    That all honestly sounds like a dream, but it's even more amazing in action, especially with a mermaid tail attached.

    Look at that dolphin kick!

    I could watch this forward somersault all day, tbh.

    This backwards one is equally mesmerizing.

    Ahhhhhhhh.

    Get ready for a summer of mermaid tails and dolphin kicks!
