Is exercise boring and painful? You bet it is! Health coach and fitness blogger April Storey sought to mitigate the abject misery involved in a normal workout by mixing up her usual exercise videos with a little red wine.
“I was getting ready to do a workout, a video like I normally do—posting workout videos,” she says. “I saw the wine there and I’m like, ‘You know, that would be kind of funny to incorporate wine into this workout video.’”
In such moments is history made.
In the resulting short video, Storey can be seen lifting two bottles of red wine like weights and doing pushups while sipping from a wine-filled glass beneath her. Her epoch-defining film went viral when Star Trek star and activist George Takei shared it with his millions of followers.
Immortality achieved, Storey has warned her legions of new fans to drink responsibly while exercising. If you wish to view the videos and join their numbers, her Facebook page is here.
