#WorkoutWednesday: Mom Aims to Promote Healthy Living Through Viral Wine Workout
For a Redding, CA mother, her bustling, multi-tasking life was the inspiration behind a now viral work out dubbed the “Wine Workout.” When incorporating an everyday item such as a wine bottle into her usual workout routine, little did busy mom April Storey know that it would spark a viral sensation that would go on to be viewed by more than 25 million people.
Storey said, “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.'”
Besides the alcohol, April includes all kinds of everyday household items in her workout routines, which is a creative and unique way to make the most of getting in a quick workout within her busy schedule of being a mom. For parents with busy schedules like April Storey, following her pattern of being practical with a dash of ingenuity can help with the inclusion and execution of effective fitness plans.
The video went viral after former Star Trek star, George Takei, posted Storey’s video on his Facebook page for all of his nine million followers to see. “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 says, as the message that she’d like to convey in her videos would be one that promotes a healthy lifestyle.
