Gym Flash Mob Proposal Down Under Raises Our Spirits And Hope.

Love is love and even though marriage equality does not exist in Australia, there can still be proposals and displays of love, commitment, and hope for the future. 

As a statement of his love, Nico planned to sweep Mikey off his feet in the place where they had met, the gym.


Mikey and I met each other exactly one year ago on the day I proposed at Fitness First Gym, Kings Cross, Sydney. Both of us were too shy to talk to one another for a long time until I finally said hello.

When I met Mike for our first date, it was simply amazing and I felt an instant connection. Our first date felt like we were already in a relationship. He picked me up after he finished work, we went to the supermarket, bought food for a BBQ, then went to his place and prepared and cooked the food together. We both previously had been in long term relationships but they were relationships that never had the feeling of ‘I want to spend the rest of my life with this guy’. With Mike it’s been such an amazing feeling from the start and the spark never left; it only continued to get stronger and still continues to grow every day. -






I like dancing, I’m a loud person and for me this was a way for me to be loud in a different way; to be able to shout out my love for Mike.

This proposal was also a way to send a message that “love is love” no matter what your sexuality is. That’s why I chose two Beyoncé songs “Love on top” and “End of time” to dance to. I also wanted one day to be able to re live that moment with Mike so I wanted to create something memorable. Perhaps one day when we are old and we can share it with our children. -

We wish you many many many happy years together Nico and Mike. 

Just another reason to get our ass to the gym and to grab your balls and say hello.
