In what could be an adorable advertisement for their local 24-Hour Fitness, gym regulars Jake and Emily Bates met when they both moved in on the same triceps press-down machine. There was an awkward pause and then the two exchanged hellos and shortly after, Jake asked Emily for her phone number. "And then," she laughs, "he laid this down on me: 'I want to find out if your inner beauty is as good as your outer beauty.' " Hey, it worked!
Five years later, the now married couple still hits up their favorite gym together to lift weights. "He's still as cheesy as ever… and he's still my favorite gym buddy!" Emily says.
