Leah and Scott | A CrossFit Marriage Proposal
How wet met: Scott and I met in the summer of 2011 when I began Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Before my first class I was stretching and this jokester came rolling through the doors of the gym. He caught my eye, but I was recently single and vowed to stay that way for a while. So we started out “as friends”; friends who talked and flirted on a daily basis.
Before I knew it we started dating and the rest is history!
How he asked: Scott proposed on September 29, 2014 in our gym at Sheepdog CrossFit. When most people find out I was proposed to in a gym, they have a strange look on their face, but when I think about it, it couldn’t be more fitting.
Scott and I met in a gym and our relationship has grown at our gym. Our CrossFit family has always been support for us so I couldn’t be happier they were there.
Now if you watch the video, you might wonder what’s going on…well to make a long story short, our gym was “filming a documentary” which Scott had set up so I wouldn’t think twice of the cameras.
We began with a workout and finished with a plank circle, telling the person beside us what we admire about them…boys being boys, most comments were them making fun of each other.
When it got to Scott, who was last, he popped up and gave me the biggest surprise of my life, saying “you’re the most important person in my life, will you marry me?” What the camera didn’t capture is my whole family hiding outside and coming in right after! I couldn’t be more happy to finally be getting hitched to my love this summer!
