To close out your Friday and send you off into the weekend in high spirits, we present to you this video of a golden retriever enthusiastically knocking out some bicycle crunches with its owner.

They're too late to enter the Men's Health Ultimate Dog Search, but they're No. 1 in our hearts. And while we didn't highlight golden retrievers as one of our choice breeds to run with, it's clear that they know how to shape some killer abs.

As this video succinctly captures, the enthusiasm of a good dog is unbeatable when it comes to attaining the motivation necessary to push through a grueling fitness class. Their form isn't perfect, but we'll be damned if we've seen anything—man or animal—that has more zest in knocking out a set of crunches. (Want an equally fast and ferocious full-body workout? Try this crunch that works every muscle.) Anyway, without further ado, the moment you've all been waiting for.

Seriously, is there anything on the face of the planet right now that is better than this video? I don't think so.
