A mash-up of prance and exercise (doh!). It’s the brainchild (and trademark, please) of US-based social worker Joanna Rohrback. Watch the video on http://prancercise.com/video/

Usage: Monica: What’s with Phoebe ambling about like a clown?
Rachel: She’s not ambling, you dimwit. She’s prancercising to lose all that winter weight! 

The tools: A pair of foot weights tied to your ankles (and later on to your wrists), music to help you sway.

The method: Remember how Saif Ali Khan danced to Woh Ladki Hai Kahaan in Dil Chahta Hai? Repeat that ad nauseam, prancercise around the circumference of your neighbourhood park. When you tie the weights to your wrists, just imagine yourself to be Rambo.

You will look like: A clown. Or a tipsy old aunt dancing at a wedding.
