When it comes to fitness, getting married is probably one of the greatest incentives there is.
Is there anyone out there who didn’t say to themself, I better crank it up a notch for the wedding?
Often these weddings are a result of making the commitment to a healthy lifestyle. Once you sign up to a gym or a CrossFit training center, you become a member of a fitness community where you meet other fitness enthusiasts.
Friendships are formed and sometimes, you meet the one of your dreams – someone as crazy about fitness as you are. Imagine!This is exactly what happened for one couple who fell in love at a CrossFit training center in the Maritimes, Canada.
The incredible thing about this couple was that both their families were also CrossFit trainers. So when it came to planning the wedding, a CrossFit theme seemed inevitable.
Complete with a boulder-carrying exercise before the ceremony, and a wedding cake in the shape of a kettlebell, this CrossFit wedding included a bride-and-groom WOD instead of a first dance, and wedding photos taken against the backdrop of a CrossFit training center.
For someone who is getting married in a couple of months, I love this story, and it made me wonder:
How many members of our Fitmark community met their partner at the gym?
