33-year-old Daniel Butler and 36-year-old Andi Nevue were battling drug addiction when they met in April 2014 through mutual friends.
Daniel said it was a daily habit and he’d spend around $200 a day on drugs for both of them.
Daniel said: “It was a daily habit, we were smoking it all day, every day. I was probably spending around $200 a day on drugs for us both.”
“All I did was work 24/7 to support our habit. I didn’t have time for family or for my relationship. Meth took over our lives.”
After Daniel was arrested for drug possession and had to spend six months in Dona Ana County jail, the couple decided to get sober.
They started going to the gym six days a week and embraced a healthy lifestyle.
Andi said: “The gym was where we got to spend time together and kept our relationship alive.”
In October 2018, Andi proposed to Daniel at Christmas and finally tied the knot at Crunch Fitness in Las Cruces, New Mexico, United States.
The gym’s manager, Keith Smith officiated the ceremony.
Andi said: “It’s been a home away from home for us and it has helped us maintain our sobriety. It is a good way to release your energy and stress. Instead of turning to substances for an escape, we find it through physical activity.”
“We go six times a week, it’s an important part of our relationship.”
Daniel added: “Exercise will always be a massive part of our lives. We go to the gym all the time and we’ve got no plans to stop now.”
