Dance: a Conversation Between Your Body and Soul
Mannrobics publicity blurb

Mannrobics is a special taunt for all classes.

When the player activates it through the taunts menu, the character performs a variety of arm lunges, with several optional flairs: Primary and Alt-fire perform two different flair moves. Primary fire's flair is shared with all classes and consists of several up-and-down arm waves, two jumps, three wide arm stretches, then a few hops, while Alt-fire's flair is unique with a different animation for each class. Upon startup, the character starts by using their Alt-fire flair, then return to the default standing position, which is a looping animation of the class clapping and jogging on the spot. This is also the animation that the player returns to after ending a Primary or Alt-fire flair. The workout is accompanied by an up-tempo synthesized beat.

The player can freely move about during the taunt using the directional keys, albeit slower than usual. Alt-fire's flair will immediately stop the player on the spot, while Primary fire's flair will let the player keep moving until they land with their two jumps. Control is granted again once the player returns to the jogging animation.

Any other player (including bots), regardless of team or if they own the taunt, can join any player who is in the "workout" by standing close to them and pressing the taunt button. Other players will see an icon above the dancer's head which indicates if the taunt is active. The aerobics workout can be spread throughout the players on a server even after the original owner stops dancing.

For the voice lines and animations of each class, please refer to the respective class taunts pages.
