REDDING, Calif. - A 24-year-old California woman just made working out a lot more fun.
April Storey, a health educator and fitness blogger, posted a 15-second video now called “The Wine Workout” on her Facebook page in January. The video shows Storey creatively using wine bottles and wine glasses in a simple exercise routine.
"I was getting ready to do a workout, a video like I normally do - posting workout videos. I saw the wine there and I'm like, 'You know, that would be kind of funny to incorporate wine into this workout video,’” she said.
According to KRCR, the video went viral after former Star Trek star George Takei shared the video to his nine million followers.
Storey has posted dozens of workout videos on social media. Most of them are exercise routines that can be performed in one's home and don't involve alcohol.
"What I want to show people with my videos is that fitness is something you can do every day, you can do it anywhere, and you can use anything,” she said. "You don't have to have equipment. You don't have to spend a lot of money."
Despite the attention and funny comments The Wine Workout has garnered, Storey reminds people to drink their workout wine responsibly and in moderation. She told KRCR she only used one glass of wine in her video and said she didn't even drink the full contents of that glass. She also warned against drinking multiple glasses of wine per workout.
