The whirlwind romance continues: Frances Abbott and fiancé Sam Loch flaunt incredible physiques on famous Sydney beach after getting engaged just two weeks after they met
- Frances Abbott and fiance Sam Loch were spotted at Palm Beach in Sydney
- The pair were seen lathering sunscreen on each other before swimming
- Frances and Sam became engaged earlier this year after just weeks of dating
The pair have both gained online followings through their dedication to health and fitness.
Now engaged, it makes sense that Olympian weightlifter Sam Loch and Frances Abbott, the daughter of Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott, spend their days exercising together.
Frances Abbott and her fiance Sam Loch were seen in Palm Beach on Wednesday
The pair were spotted running up and down nearby hills before cooling off in the surf
The fit physiques of the pair, Frances an amateur bodybuilder and Sam an Olympic rower, were on proud display as they frolicked in the water
Frances and Sam were seen walking hand in hand during the day, appearing deep in conversation at times.
The pair were dressed casually for their stroll through their Northern Beaches neighbourhood, and Sam appeared to have brought Tupperware containers of snacks for their day out.
Their eagerness for the cool surf was evident, as Sam stripped his top off in a nearby car park, and Frances began to power walk ahead.
She smiled as she ran, clutching her water bottle and showing off her muscular arms by clutching her wallet between her body and her bicep.
On the same day, the pair were also seen walking hand in hand in Sydney's northern beaches

The Olympic rower was also seen carrying a number of Tupperware containers in a plastic bag as he approached the beach
When the newly-engaged couple arrived at the beach, they took turns coating each other in sunscreen as Frances donned a black cap.
Their joint endeavours in fitness were glaringly obvious as the pair appeared toned and muscular.
Sam chose to show off a bit more than most would dare at a public beach, and rocked a pair of speckled Budgy Smugglers.
Frances kept things simple with a black string bikini, which left her abdonimal muscles out on display
Frances, who has established herself as an amateur bodybuilder, made headlines earlier this year for her shock engagement to Sam.
When the couple arrived, they made sure to slip slop slap - and were seen helping each other out in some of the harder to reach places
Sam dared to bare during his time in the sun, choosing a pair of speckled Budgy Smugglers over the traditional choice of boardshorts
After being lathered up herself, Frances moved to help Sam cover his back with sun protection
The 26-year-old first announced the whirlwind romance and subsequent engagement via Instagram with a series of couple snaps taken in a photo booth.
'Two weeks was all it took to know that forever with you was a mighty fine idea,' the fitness devotee wrote.
Mr Loch, 34, confirmed the news with a selfie of the pair captioned 'With the soon to be Mrs Loch'.
The 60-year-old former Prime Minister of Australia also confirmed news of his daughter's engagement on social media.
Using two tweets to post his message, the Liberal MP said: 'Really thrilled at the news of Francie and Sam's engagement.
'We are very proud of her and the Abbotts are looking forward to welcoming Sam into the family.'
A simple black string bikini showed off Frances' muscular frame, and highlighted her rippling abs
The couple appeared to share a joke as they stood together on the sand after exiting the water
The 26-year-old daughter of Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott appeared gleeful as she spent time with her soon-to-be husband
Mr Abbott's enthusiasm may have been fuelled by his first impressions of the Olympic rower, formed when the two met in Melbourne.
At the time the young couple were in the midst of a whirlwind romance and very much in love, but Mr Loch had yet to pop the question.
'I think meeting Tones can be quite intimidating for anyone, but that's what I love about Sam,' the 26-year-old confided.
'He's so grounded, and so settled in his own skin, it felt totally natural. There was no change in voice, no sitting upright. Dad liked him.'
As for her mother Margie, she was as surprised as anyone when her middle daughter told her of Mr Loch's proposal.
Earlier this year, the couple made headlines by announcing their shock engagement, after just weeks of dating
Frances admitted both of her parents were surprised at the speed in which their daughter chose to commit to her new partner, but Mr Abbott took to social media after the announcement to express his happiness at her decision
Frances revealed she had been putting peas in the freezer when her beau popped the question
'Mum was like, "Frances, you are quite impulsive",' Frances remembered, saying her family want the best for her despite the speed of her engagement.
As for the proposal itself, Frances said it happened while she was in the kitchen putting peas in the freezer.
Mr Loch had a bottle of champagne in his hands and cleverly convinced her to ask him why.
When she obliged, he replied that he had brought it to drink after he asked her to marry him.
That was two weeks after they first met, and the couple waited another two weeks before telling the world.
Having already moved in together, Frances and Mr Loch have ordered a ring and will walk down the aisle next year.
Peppered with questions about the speed of the engagement, Frances revealed it could not have felt more natural, saying she believes in trusting her instincts.
Despite the speed of their engagement, Frances says their coupling feels quite natural to her, and her instincts tell her the pair's relationship will last
