When Christina entered her and Oliver into a Reebok-sponsored Instagram competition to win the chance to get wed at the 2016 Reebok CrossFit Games, she had no idea they’d win! Fast forward a few days, and she’s frantically calling friends and family to get to the StubHub Center in Carson California for the big event!
Surrounded by Games athletes and other CrossFit enthusiasts, Christina & Oliver said their vows and “I do” in a wedding ceremony officiated by Dave Castro himself! We joke about Dave’s hair that year (cornrows!) and the bride’s athletic-inspired outfit (Christina wore a sports bra and tennis skirt).
After experiencing a flash of CrossFit wedding fame, Christina & Oliver had a son, Magnus, and moved from New York to Texas, where they are getting creative — with competition and stroller workouts — to keep up with CrossFit amidst a lot of life changes.
Oliver shares his motto, “ego is the enemy” and Christina opens up about mom guilt while the two encourage others to stick with fitness and work together to make it happen, even if it’s in small doses.
