Sangita Patel is back with another weekly dose of fitness inspiration.

On Tuesday, the former "ET Canada" host shared an Instagram reel of herself and her husband Sam demonstrating a "mind blowing" fitness challenge.

During the workout, Sangita wore a pair of black leggings and a matching tank top, paired with white sneakers, while her husband opted for a bright red T-shirt and black shorts.

The clip begins with another couple successfully completing the "pull-up using your partner's arm" challenge before segueing the Patels giving it a try.

"In training," the Canadian TV personality wrote in the on-screen text while she made her first attempt to use her husband's arm as a pull-up bar.

"Drum roll please...," she wrote, before the duo successfully completed the challenge. "Sam is like, 'Finally!'"

"The pull-up 'use your partner's arm' challenge. Keep the challenges coming," she penned in the caption. "This was a fun one for me. #PoorSam. Luckily, Sam has a strong arm!."

Fans met Patel's video with praise for her impressive agility and for her husband's patience.

"Amazing teamwork," a fan wrote, while another added, "Sam is such a good sport!"

"He is not only a good sport, but he is really strong. You are a lovely couple with a terrific family," shared another.

One fan wrote: "Love watching these... Feeling part-weak and part-super inspired."

"Actually so impressive. And Sam is such a good sport," commented another.

Patel's workout video comes just over a week after opening up to her fans about the unnerving pathology report results she received after undergoing surgery to remove a suspicious lump on her thyroid.

In a candid Instagram reel taken from Turks and Caicos, the mom-of-two recalled prior to her trip, she got the news her once "benign" lump was in fact cancerous.

"This trip came at the right time or me because right before I left I got my pathology report, and I went from benign to suspicious to encapsulated invasive oncocytic carcinoma. Cancer," she said.

Despite the daunting news, Patel said she was "feeling fantastic."

"I am recovering, and I know I have this incredible team that's going to take me into the second chapter of this journey," she shared.

"I am physically strong," Patel continued. "I am mentally strong and I know this positive energy runs through this temple. Just kind of sucks. I didn't think I'd be here. I know I'm gonna be fine, I know that. But live life to the fullest, right?"
