Couple weight lift together at their wedding ceremony
There's something about "gym couples" that seems to rub people up the wrong way. And now, one couple took the mantra those who lift together, stay together to a whole new level – and people are losing their minds.
The viral footage shared on social media showed a newlywed couple ditching the traditional first dance and doing things their way: deadlifting. The sentimental idea stemmed from the pair meeting at the gym, according to the text overlay.
Unsurprisingly, the clip racked up millions of views along with thousands of divisive comments. People were quick to distinguish the gym-goer bride and groom as CrossFit enthusiasts – who some described as a "cult".
CrossFit is a high-intensity form of interval training, that includes a strength and conditioning workout that is made up of functional movement. Some may consider it extreme fitness to build strength or/and lose weight.
