After my convo last week with American Ninja Warrior Meagan Martin, my stamina is stronger than ever, but I still feel #NotThatFit overall. There are four components of fitness left to master, so today I’m learning about coordination from professional dancer Michael Dameski.

Coordination is the ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular movement, which is the foundation of Dameski’s style. First trained in ballet, he’s since branched out to hip-hop and modern dance, combining them all in a way that emphasizes flips, spins, and jumps. The result is the kind of spectacular routines that earned him runner-up on “World of Dance” and the winner of Australia’s “So You Think You Can Dance.”
