The couple who WODs together stays together?
So it seems for newlyweds Christina Moore and Oliver Drewes, who tied the knot at this past weekend’s 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games.
The happy couple had to beat out hundreds of other CrossFit contestants on social media to win the competition’s official “Reebok WOD Wedding,” an all-expense-paid affair at the StubHub Center’s tennis arena in Carson, CA, where the annual CrossFit Games take place.
In front of their family and friends—plus, a couple thousand CrossFit fans—the duo, who met at their local Brooklyn CrossFit, tied the knot and made it official with Qalo rings—the go-to functional wedding ring for CrossFitters, thanks to its workout-friendly material (silicone instead of hard metals).
“We fell in love while WOD-ing in a pit and running obstacle course races,” explained Moore. “I wasn’t a little girl who dreamed of a big wedding or a white dress. All I ever wanted was happiness and love with a man who loves my brand of crazy. I found that man!”
After the ceremony ended, the bridal party and fans from the crowd joined the couple in the arena rose garden for a reception complete with dancing, champagne and a wedding cake (Paleo, of course). Talk about an out-of- (and off)-the-box wedding.
Your local box might be a great place to find a partner—after all, CrossFit and yoga have actually been found to improve your sex life. Also, while these two were flirting during their WODs, find out what the trainers were probably thinking.
