Exclusive First Look: 'DWTS' Pros Flip Out for Old Navy

06/04/2013 at 10:42 AM ET

Watching Cheryl Burke and Maksim Chmerkovskiy glide, spin and swing around the dance floor on Dancing With the Stars, you might think there’s pretty much nothing athletic they can’t do.

But when Old Navy took them out to try their hand at parkour with renowned parkour and free running expert Jesse La Flair, they found themselves in the same position as their celebrity dance partners in the past: a little bewildered, but willing to work hard.

La Flair takes the duo across monkey bars and over hurdles to show them just how challenging the sport can be. And then the dancing pros return the favor, with Burke taking La Flair for a little spin.

They may not have nailed the moves, but at least Burke and Chmerkovskiy looked good trying in their Active by Old Navy workout gear (Psst: the leggings are a PEOPLE StyleWatch editor fave!)

Check out one more exclusive behind-the-scenes pic below, and tune into Old Navy’s YouTube channel starting tomorrow for lots more of your favorite stars getting their fit on.

Tell us: Would you ever give parkour a try?
