CrossFit Proposal Somehow Makes Burpees Seem Romantic

It may not sound romantic to pop the question while doing burpees, but that's only because you've never seen this video.

JP and Amanda first met at Frisco CrossFit in Texas while attending a 5:30 am class, so it makes sense that when JP finally wanted to propose, he chose the "box" where the two fell in love. (A box is a gym for all you non-CrossFitters).

Of course, if you're going to propose in a gym, you better make it special. So JP enlisted the help of his fellow CrossFitters.

His idea: create a workout of the day he knew Amanda would hate -- in this case, seven minutes of excruciating burpees. Then, save her from her misery by popping the question (while dancing, naturally).

Watch above to see how it all went down.
