If you've been searching in vain for motivation to exercise, stop right now. This video has everything you need: a scorching soundtrack, the legendary poet Maya Angelou and a motley crew of fierce women slaying it in their respective sports. 

The one-and-a-half minute clip is the latest installment of the UK "This Girl Can" campaign. The initiative aims to "inspire women to wiggle, jiggle, move and prove that judgement is a barrier that can be overcome."  

As the women of different shapes, sizes and backgrounds get physical with flair, you can hear a recording of Angelou reciting "Phenomenal Woman," a poem she wrote in 1978: "It’s the fire in my eyes, / And the flash of my teeth, / The swing in my waist, / And the joy in my feet. / I’m a woman / Phenomenally. " 

We can't promise you that you won't cry, but we can all-but-guarantee this clip will get you ready to take on the world.
