A Tennessee fitness guru and radio host unlocked the secret to turning a dull exercise routing into a fun-filled boozy activity, and the online world can’t get enough of fresh take on weight lifting.
Megan Vaughan, from Clarksville, took to Instagram to share a video demonstrating how she combined her love of fitness and vino into an ingenious wine workout, which has quickly been shared across the internet
In the video, posted five days ago, the blonde toned her arms with iron weight bicep curls, using a personalized weight bar that featured a bottle of red taped to its center.
Fun fitness! Radio host and exercise guru Megan Vaughan shared this wine workout video on her social media accounts, where it quickly went viral, racking up over 35 million views
Bottoms up! In the clip, Megan used a customized a curl bar to hold a bottle of red wine in the center, so that in between bicep curls she can take a sip before the next move

As Megan pulls in each curl from her thighs up to her shoulders, the bottle is in the perfect spot to sneak in a sip; and, with each arm curl, the blonde happily awards herself with a splash of the red.
Wine lovers and gym junkies alike couldn’t help but be won over by the clip, which sees Megan herself getting a bit swept away by the fun sweat-sesh, eventually spilling some of the bottle on herself when her sipping technique got a bit too vigorous.
Ensuring she was suitably dressed for the occasion, the tall blonde donned a top with the phrase ‘How Melot Can You Go?’ adding a jazzy pair of black and white workout pants to complete her fitness-meets-fun look.
She captioned the video with a fun-filled hashtag too, writing: ‘Happy #winewednesday peeps! Bottoms up and biceps up!’
Not everyone, however, finds Megan’s idea to be so genius, and she was forced to share another post confronting critics of her unique routine.
‘I’ve been told, ‘You’ll never have good abs if you drink wine!.” Well, sure, I may not have a six-pack, but you know what? I don’t really care,’ she said.
‘Fitness, for me, is about staying in shape and feeling good. And I damn sure love my wine. Life is short, drink the wine, and to hell with everyone else’s silly opinions!’ she added.

But this isn’t the first time her fizzy fitness ideas have gone viral.
Another video she posted with a friend hit over 7.4 million views on Facebook, where the two sat back to back for an ab workout. Megan held a large bottle of wine with an iron weight attached to the neck, took a sip, and rotated her torso to pass to her partner who did the same.
The radio personality has also posted workout routines on Youtube in the past, all equipped with a dual-purpose bottle.
The wine workout movement is gaining traction in the exercise world.
Fitness coach April Storey became an internet sensation last February for her tipsy routines as well, where she took sips of wine from a straw in between push ups and used wine bottles as bicep weights.
Storey racked up over 25million views for her cheeky exercises that included lunges and toe taps with rewarding swings of vino in between. The cycling instructor took to Instagram to track her dramatic weight loss and to post her wine-bottle workouts.
Last year the blonde mom uploaded a wine workout video on National Wine Day to celebrate her two passions.
