Watch This Hardcore Pointe Shoe Workout

January 27, 2017

We’re constantly looking for new ways to cross-train, and professional ballerina Kylie Shea just hardcore inspired us with this intense pointe shoe-meets-treadmill situation. Behold:

#PointeChronicles • Cross Training Pt. 3 🙆🏽 Because there are many different ways to use a treadmill… here’s another one! I’ve been envisioning this for many months and finally filmed it during my latest trip to New York City on a whim at 3am 😳 Don’t ever be afraid to get creative with your workouts! Big thank you to the @SohoGrandHotel for an inspired stay! From the moment I first walked in to the fitness room I knew it was the perfect place to make this video come to life. We will definitely be back! And to the incredible @Rupaulofficial , there is no song more motivating for strutting loudly and proudly! 🙏🏽❤😘 Now #SissyThatWalk 👠🤓💃🏽 #kylieshea #ballerina #RuPaul #balletdancer #sohogrand #pointe #ballerinas #dancers #crosstraining #ballet #dancelife #dance #YouCanDoit #sohograndhotel

That takes some serious balance, ankle and core strength—major kudos, Kylie. Have any favorite cross-training methods? Tell us in the comments! Happy weekend, y’all.
