Who says Thighmasters and ballroom dancing can’t mix?

Certainly not Suzanne Somers, one of the 12 celebrities who will participate in the 20th season of Dancing with the Stars. PEOPLE has learned that Somers, 68, will incorporate the exercise tool that she made famous in the ’90s into her opening night performance.

The plan is to somehow feature the device that’s supposed to exercise the hip adductors into her cha cha with partner Tony Dovolani. They’ll do it while dancing to Olivia Newton-John‘s “Physical.”

In this video, Somers – who will also blog exclusively for PEOPLE this season – demonstrates to her partner how to properly utilize the device.

“I happen to be an expert in this,” Somers tells Dovolani. “I think we are going to have a lot of fun.”

“Oh yes,” Dovolani replies, while using the Thighmaster. “As long as we keep this nearby.”

The 20th season premiere of Dancing with the Stars premieres Monday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
