April Storey, who describes herself as "a mom and health educator", became a viral sensation after she posted a video of her 'wine work-out' as part of National Drink Wine Day. The video has now been seen by over 10 million people.
The majority of the views came from a video that was shared by former Star Trek star, George Takei, who commented 'Quit wine-ing and work out.'
Storey, of Redding, California, told 7KRCR News: "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'." After the viral success of her first video, Storey posted a similar one showing her doing push-up while sipping wine through a straw.
Storey says that she wants to spread the message that staying fit can be easy and fun: "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. You don't have to have equipment. You don't have to spend a lot of money."
On her website, Storey describes herself as "a child of God, wife to an amazing man for 3.5 years, mom to the happiest little toddler, and I run a health and fitness business from my home."
