When I was a kid, one of my favorite parts of the holiday season was breaking out my CD player and listening to the Radio Disney Jingle Jams CD on repeat. It was the height of my Hilary Duff phase, and I truly never got tired of listening to her belt the chorus of "Santa Claus Lane."

So you can only imagine how excited I was when fitness YouTuber and Canfitpro-certified trainer Emily Thorne released a Disney Channel Christmas dance workout as part of her "12 Days of HIITmas" series. The 23-minute video even starts with a warmup to my favorite Hilary Duff holiday tune.

After "Santa Claus Lane," Thorne kicks off the HIIT workout with jumping jacks and punches to "Greatest Time of Year" by Aly & AJ. She then moves on to "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" by Miley Cyrus, "Wonderful Christmas Time" by Demi Lovato, "5 More Days 'Til Christmas" by The Cheetah Girls, and "Shake Santa Shake" by Zendaya. Basically, the video features songs by all of the biggest and best Disney Channel queens.

Get ready to feel jolly with nostalgic joy, and hit play on the workout above.
