Athletes of all ages, shapes and sizes are enjoying the benefits of ballet without the need to wear frilly pink tutus or crunch their toes into pointe shoes — all thanks to a professional dancer-turned-YouTuber.

Miya Nishizono is showing Japanese athletes that ballet is not just for those who dream of pirouetting and glissading across the stage in productions like Swan Lake. The dance form is proving a valuable way for them to spice up their routine with a unique form of cross-training.

Nishizono made famous the ballet-inspired workout now known as "Majo Tore," which translates to "witch training," because of the magical results many have seen.
