In a video posted to his Facebook page, Porter, an Australian native, shows gym-goers the best way to lift a loaded barbell -- dance over to it.

If Porter's performance is any indication of what women can expect to see at the gym, chances are memberships will be increasing in no time.

The clip has been viewed more than 240,000 times on Facebook.
