A Season for Love and Romance – In the Most Surprising Places

February 11, 2013 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
(Naperville, IL) February 11, 2013 When joining a gym, most people think of lifestyle changes losing weight, increasing strength, and rejuvenating their health. But the lifestyle change that Matt Gallagher had in mind for his girlfriend, Edi Comerlato, was something completely unexpected. On January 5, 2013, members of Midwest Fit Club attended one of the most memorable Fit Camp sessions led by Matt, as he proposed to Edi. With help from the staff, cameras were in place and ready to capture this very special moment called "The Reverse Lunge Proposal."

"Inspiration for the proposal came to me after speaking with a staff member" said Matt Gallagher, Personal Trainer and Class Instructor at Midwest Fit Club. "I came up with the 'Reverse Lunge Proposal' deciding to demonstrate a reverse lunge in class and ending with presenting the ring from my pocket. It put me in the perfect stance to ask her to marry me."

Matt and Edi had been dating for two years prior to the engagement. Edi is from Brazil and in the process of becoming a U.S. citizen. As a way to make her citizenship official, as well as their life together in marriage, Matt was eager to propose.

"Edi was shaking, which made it difficult to put the ring on her finger," said Matt. "She saw it coming as soon as I put on 'God Gave Me You' by Blake Shelton, our song." While Edi may have seen the proposal coming, the class certainly did not. "One lady even threw down her mat and started taking pictures! People were pretty excited."

The happy couple is already making big plans for the wedding. The date is set for March 2013.
