VIDEO: Dude Valiantly Saves Girlfriend from 7 Minutes of Burpees By Proposing During Their CrossFit Class

So I especially enjoyed this proposal because 1) I just so happen to have a friend who met her fiance at CrossFit 215 in Philly and that delights me and 2) burpees drive me into a very particular kind of rage, so I can very much relate to this girl’s hatred of them—and how extra awesome this surprise proposal must have been when she thought she had seven minutes—seven minutes!—of them to slug through.

JP here decided to propose to Amanda during the same 5:30am class where they fell in love—specifically during a loooong string of burpees, which he specially arranged to have happen during the class. Well, very nicely, he didn’t make her go through a lot of them before his plan went off—involving, of course, a little Bruno Mars. Take a look.
