INSTRUCTOR LOVE STORIES WITH BEX
In honor of Valentine's Day, instructors share intimate deets on finding (and staying in) love. Below, peep our feature with Bex, our fierce AF instructor in NYC and her beau Adam.
So, this love story started off on...
Bex: JDate! The dotcom, before the swipe left era.
Adam: JDate. I was making cold calls on Wall Street, perusing the web, and then I found Bex!
Cute! What was your first impression of each other?
Bex: He has such a friendly smile! Made me laugh and the conversation was so easy and flowed.
Adam: I thought she was hot!
Love it! Describe your first date.
Bex: First date was at a rooftop bar called Local, right by MSG. We wanted to order a snack, and anyone who knows us NOW knows that we have weird snack orders (i.e. Side of broccoli with no butter, salt, or cheese). However, I didn't want to be difficult, so I suggested mozzarella sticks. Since I'm a weird order-er, and he's a Type 1 Diabetic, that's literally the only time we had mozzarella sticks together. We didn't want to weird the other one out! Now, we can just be pain in the ass order-ers together.
Adam: We ordered mozzarella sticks even though it should have been broccoli, and I wore a watch that didn't work cause I thought the watch would impress her.
That’s real love tbh! Tell us three things you love about your partner.
Bex: He's my best friend, he allows me to be my goofy silly self, and he works unbelievably hard!
Adam: Her enjoyment for life, her companionship, and her friendliness.
What are some of your partner’s quirks?
Bex: Fridge needs to be loaded with 12 egg white containers and 3 sunflower butters at all times. He has a pair of blue Adidas shorts he wears around our apt constantly that literally have no elastic anymore and won't seven stay up, but he refuses to get a new pair.
Adam: She's so detail oriented and I'm so not! She'll put more and more details while I'm like less is more!
Name three memorable experiences you’ve been through together as a couple.
- He surprised me with a flash mob to "To Life" at our wedding.
- He was Bex Fan #1 during my pop music years and came with me to every nearly every show.
- We stayed at my parents for the first time and got there super late, just wanted to go to sleep, but my dad decided to come into the room in his underwear (!!!!), sit on the edge of the bed (also, we each were in separate twin beds), and he decided to yap with us for like, 25 minutes.
- Taking Lagree Fitness classes in LA.
- Going to a gay club with her the first time when she was performing.
- Meeting my father-in-law to-be in his underwear.
How would you describe the dynamic of your relationship?
Bex: Balanced! We are partners. He's gonna say I make all the decisions though.
What's the best advice you can give another couple?
Bex: You've got to have fun together! That's what it's all about.
Adam: Always be yourself!
Just for fun, what are your top 3 shows of all time? Let's see if they match.
Bex: Vanderpump, Breaking Bad, Ray Donovan
Adam: Breaking Bad tied with Narcos, Ray Donovan, Vanderpump Rules
Wait. Are you in love with Bex too?
Same. Fall in love with her even harder in her class this week.
