Ever feel intimidated at the gym — the equipment you don’t know how to use and the people whose gym face you can’t understand? Well, take inspiration from one gym regular who handles it like a pro, even though she’s new.

Lalah the cat suavely scales the walls at climbing gym Boulbaka in Okinawa, Japan, according to the gym’s Facebook page. Video shows her climbing from hold to hold, looking for the right spot to go to next and smoothly getting to the top.

“She must have been eager for climbing up to the top before she became proper size to reach to the next hold (colored rocks) while watching people climbing every day,” a post reads.
