Kassie K’s Christmas list is a little different than Mariah Carey‘s. Rather than asking Santa for her lover (aka "you"), Kassie is only interested in getting gains.

The competitive bodybuilder‘s parody of the classic Christmas song, called “All I Want for Christmas Is Gains” puts a hysterical, fitness-themed twist on the original.

“I’ve noticed there are many workout videos online, but very little comedic videos about fitness. This year, I sort of decided on a whim to record this parody,” Kassie, 25, tells PEOPLE.

“Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is my all time favorite Christmas song, and I had a random thought about writing a parody to it while singing it in my car. I started writing down some lyrics and went in studio to record it two days later.”

Kassie says “gains” is a popular social media term that means “getting stronger and/or bigger from muscle gain.”

“For example, you could say, ‘Brian! Look at your gains! You’re jacked now!’ or ‘Brian, why did you eat that entire ice cream cake, you’re going to kill your gains!'” she explains.

The Vancouver social worker tapped into the lingo while writing the lyrics.

“I’ve noticed the more true something is, the more humorous it is because people can relate,” she says. “For me, and many others, supplements are expensive – especially protein powder – so I knew I had to make a joke about that.”

“And I know my Christmas wish list includes getting a bigger booty. Building a booty is hard!” she continued. “It takes a lot of patience and a lot of heavy lifting and proper nutrition and I know it is definitely a top wish list item for many female lifters.”

Last year, Kassie hit the viral-video jackpot with her remake of Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass,” to ‘All About Those Gains,’ which scored over five million views on Facebook.

“It’s the coolest thing ever for a musician to have their music reach millions of people all over the world,” she says. “It was icing on the cake that I was able to combine my love for music with my love of fitness, and to have both music lovers and fitness lovers enjoying the video.”

Kassie says would love to see this parody go viral like her last one, but she’s happy with the attention so far.

“I know having your videos to go viral online is very hit and miss,” she says. “Of course I would love for this video to get just as big as the last; but I am so grateful knowing that it has already reached so many people.”
