Prisais Townsend (@princess_p_freya_doll) is a 4-year-old from Southern California who already has a budding enthusiasm for all things fitness. On top of learning gymnastics, the workout whiz is also a beast in the gym and recently reached her goal of performing 10 pull-ups(!) in a row. (P.S. Here's How to Finally Do a Pull-Up)
It's not entirely surprising that Prisais is such a natural—her dad is a former Chicago Bears wide receiver, co-owns the gym Autumo CrossFit, and is well on his way to becoming a fitness influencer on Instagram.
He recently shared a video of his daughter completing the pull-ups all by herself and wrote how much he loved her commitment. "I pray my Princess P will forever carry the will and determination that women can be beautiful, smart, respectful, and strong all in one," he said.

THE ROAD TO 10 STRICT PULL UPS HAS BEEN CONQUERED!!!! The smile on her face while doing these are contagious. I wish i can smile while working out. I pray my Princess P (@princess_p_freya_doll 4yrs old) will forever carry the will and determination that women can be beautiful, smart, respectful and strong all in one. @crossfit @bleacherreport @houseofhighlights @espn @theshaderoom @alphasportz @super_athletes @theellenshow #princessp #prisaisbrooklyn #crossfit #crossfitfuturechampion #gymnastics #heyguysitsmeprisais #wonderwoman #super_athletes #houseofhighlights #alphasportz #ellentube
She also enjoys doing push-ups, deadlifts, and squats. But perhaps her most inspiring feat is the fact that she can do a 20-inch box jump like it's no big deal. Take a look:
Being fit and active is the way of life. No matter to how old you are....have fun. I love working out with my daddy (@youngtonym). I enjoy the time @CrossFit allows us to spend together and showing me a new way to be a strong, independent girl as I continue to grow and develop. #PrincessP #prisaisbrooklyn #crossfit #crossfitkid #autumocrossfit
While it's easy to see that Prisais could have a career in sports someday, her dad wants her time in the gym to be fun. "I never want Prisais to feel pressure in the gym," he told Yahoo! Lifestyle. "We'll stop the second this is no longer fun for her."
Instead, he wants to make it an empowering experience. "I have three daughters and I want them to know that they can be as strong as a man," he says. "CrossFit is one way to do that."
