Why trading your weights for wine bottles is the best idea ever

If your motto is “work out now, wine later,” 24-year-old health coach April Storey has arrived on the fitness scene to show you how to put your red, red wine collection to use during your workout.

Storey says all you need to get a great workout is a bottle of merlot. (Well, almost.) Storey’s “Once Upon a Wine” home workout videos show how you can use wine bottles in place of dumbbells to do everything from bicep curls to tricep kick-backs (and even, jokingly, how to squeeze in sips during pushups).

“Working out is a big part of my day and my routine,” Storey tells People. “I also of course love wine, and wine in moderation is okay, so I came up with the idea on New Year’s Eve after we had bought some wine to go over to our friend’s house. The initial idea of it was that you can use anything in your house to work out, whether it’s soup cans or wine bottles.” (We’re partial to the wine bottles, though—hello, antioxidants!)

The video has more than 18 million views and 68,000 comments, proving the world is clearly ready for wine workouts.

Kettlebell swings using boxed wine, anyone?

And think of it this way: If you can replace free weights with vino, you’re one step closer to Kondo-ing your whole house
