>> adam ravante is a celebrity fitness trainer and founder of people's boot camp here in new york city . he knew how to get on our show.

>> he knew how to sell it.

>> is this a real thing or did you make this up for us?

>> here's the point.

>> what is the point?

>> what is the point, get off my show. it can be really hard to find your motivation to work out sometimes, right?

>> yeah.

>> anything can you do to make the workout more fun, more accessible.

>> this is making it more dangerous.

>> we have plastic mats there.

>> come on.

>> roll up and let's get into it. anything you can do to make it more fun, more accessible, you'll be more likely to do it. we incorporated wine. the first exercise we're going to do, we're going to do cheer-ups, i even have cute names.

>> i'm feeling the bush.

>> i would represent doing all of these back to back for 30 seconds.

>> take us to the final.

>> so the next exercise we're going to do wine bottle woodchoppers. everybody grab a bottle.

>> we have 30 seconds.

>> 30 seconds 'til it's over?

>> over.

>> competition final move, slashy sprinters. pick up these wine glasses , sprint in place for 15 seconds, as fast as you can, judging you on form, speed, whether you spill any got those knees up! there's wine all over the place.
