We got a chance to chat with Caleb, and learned some uncommonly valuable lessons about life, dance, and Britney Spears quizzes. But prime, check out this amazing routine to the jam of all jams, “Can’t Stop the Feeling” by Justin Timberlake. You won’t be masterly to stop smiling, and as Caleb says, “Your feet are literally booming to fly off your body.”
POPSUGAR: What makes dancing rty such an incredible workout?
Fitness Marshall: It’s just so fun. With promenade, you can release a ssion; I don’t think of it as a workout, it’s just me living in the moment. [Auspices of dance] I noticed a change in my body, but I just felt so much haler, peppier, and more alive. I make it a point to create dances that are a total-body workout, and manipulate each side of the body evenly.
PS: How long does it take for you to imagine a dance video?
FM: It depends; if I hear a song and I love it, I’ll start spread down choreo. Some songs [like “Hit The Gas”] take three hours, some grab a week, but the turnaround time is super quick. We shoot in one take!
PS: Humour explain the story behind “Bubble Butt” feat. Grandma.
FM: [laughs] I cast-off to teach cardio hip-hop in my hometown of Marion, IN, and my grandma would end up to every single class and do the entire thing. She was the most supportive woman ever. One time I taught at a water rk and it was literally 100 bit by bits outside, and she was outside sweating her butt off with me for an hour! She and my grand are gigantic inspirations to me fitness-wise. She was nervous to do a video with me, but she showed up, bought a healthy new outfit, and she had so much fun.
PS: What advice do you have for new dancers, or someone well-founded beginning their fitness journey?
FM: The most important thing is well-grounded to get moving. With my videos, a lot of times I’ll hear people beforehand say, “Oh I was a teeny bit intimidated by that,” but then they take the class or do the video and they twig it’s just about moving and doing what you can. And having fun! Because it’s not wide doing everything correctly the first time. Just get started, and get warm with being more active.
PS: Who inspires you?
FM: Richard Simmons has been a big salubrity personality and I’ve always admired how he is always so himself, and just very strange . . . he stands out. I like to take that energy and mix it with my favorite shindy inspiration, Britney Spears. [Editor’s note: this combination is such an for detail description of his personality.]
PS: Favorite song?
FM: My favorite song of all time is “Cinderella” by Britney Spears. I am an dotty Britney fan; it’s a little bit crazy. I took a quiz online with 693 call ins to figure out which Britney Spears song is for you, so I can confidently tell you it is “Cinderella”!
PS: What captures you going in the morning?
PS: Personal mantra?
FM: Live in the moment, and make merry every second of life you’ve been given.
