Mom creates viral ‘wine workout’ video

(CNN) A popular online video is creating smiles for people who are normally frustrated by exercise.

Northern California mother, 24-year-old April Storey, created the “wine workout” and posted it on her fitness Facebook page.

As a mother to a toddler, April knows her time is limited. And like many mothers know, healthy living can be a struggle.

The 15-second video posted in January — dubbed the “wine workout” — has been seen by roughly 25 million people worldwide.

“I was getting ready to do a workout, and I saw the wine there and I’m like, ‘You know, that would be kind of funny to incorporate wine into this workout video,” said April.

Wine was only incorporated in one of dozens of simple, every-day home exercises she does.

One post from former Star Trek actor George Takei saying “quit wine-ing and work out” to his nine million followers.

Most of the comments have been positive. There have been a few negative reactions about her hurting herself or falling on the wine. April says people are even making their own videos and sending them in.

No matter the number of re-creations or comments — both positive and negative — April is hoping they all get the message. “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.”
