EL PASO - It's video you need to see to believe. El Paso's own Nicole Harris has been dubbed the "dancing queen" on a YouTube video that's going viral.
"I just thought it would be another video on line and that's it, but it's kind of crazy," she said
Now national TV shows are knocking down her door...
"Inside Edition and Ellen Degeneres, so we'll see what's going to happen with that."
Nicole says she started treadmill dancing after she hurt her knee during martial arts, and she heard walking sideways on the treadmill could help it heal.
"I started doing that, and then one day I accidentally did a spin and then I was like you know what, maybe I can do something with this."
She started treadmill dancing regularly, and that's when someone put video of her online.
"It had happened before, you know, someone filmed me and it was creepy because I didn't know who it was, but he actually asked me, and I said 'it's fine as long as I don't know when you're filming it, because it will make me nervous.'"
Robert Gonzales is the guy that asked.
"I told her that most of my friends never believed me that she could really do that," he said.
Now with the video going viral, she is hoping for the best.
"I just hope a lot of people get inspired to start living a healthier life, hitting the gym, or just working out with their families at home. I mean, I want to be an inspiration to those who have had trouble losing weight."
She says it's a problem she too is trying to dance away on the treadmill.
