Ever since my introduction to Faithful Workouts I have discovered the truth about WHY I want to take care of myself, which I believe is the key to REAL change. I realized after a short time, there was something very different about the approach Faithful Workouts took to fitness. It wasn’t a new fad diet or weight loss program but a platform of encouragement to get to know God and WHY HE created me, what HIS plans are for my life. It was no longer about my agenda of wanting to stay looking fit and trim for my own visual satisfaction.
It really wasn’t until I surrendered all areas of my life, which included my health and fitness regime, did I learn God wants ALL of me and wants to be fully integrated into every aspect of my life. I looked at my relationship with God and turned my focus on Him. Once I surrendered my thoughts to HIM, the heavy burden of “I have to go exercise, diet, look good” became “I am so thankful I am healthy enough to exercise and have healthy food choices” . Turning my focus on God gave me the hope and the very personalized fitness program HE has planned for me. Today HE is my personal trainer along with the helpful tools Faithful Fitness provides. I listen to Him and the truth He speaks in his written word not the lies that this world would have me believe. His word provides the most powerful, transformational health manual ever published.
In 2010 a friend invited me to do Faithful Workouts with her. At first, the faith piece seemed a bit weird as I didn’t understand how physical health tied into faith. As time went on, my life became more balanced with exercising, eating well, spending quality workout time with friends, listening to good Christian music and Michelle’s messages are just so inspiring. It started becoming the favorite hour of each day and I wouldn’t even think of missing a workout. I liked feeling energized both physically and spiritually.
My family noticed the positive changes in me. Today, I am thrilled to say that my marriage, parenting and whole life has changed. It’s also having a positive ripple effect on family... and it’s so amazing to witness. Thank you Faithful Workouts for modeling what a balanced Christian life is all about.
There was a time when I thought I was too busy to exercise. I knew I was carrying extra pounds I did not need but I figured my gene pool was to blame for this. If asked, I may have told you I was content with myself but, truthfully, I was settling for a lesser version of my health and fitness than God ever intended for me. That all changed, the very first time I heard Michelle speak. It was such a different message—exercise so you can live life to the fullest and have the strength and energy to do it.
Since becoming a “regular” with Faithful Workouts, I have achieved (with God’s help) things I never dreamed possible: 2 full marathons, 4 half marathons and tough bicycle race that was 120 miles long and climbed 10,000 feet. But the best thing that Faithful Workouts enabled me to do was to take a high-need, 21 year old girl with Cerebral Palsy to a weeklong Christian camp. I could never have performed all the assisted activities and transfers without the strength, endurance and encouragement that Faithful Workouts has provided me for the last six years! The message of Faithful Workouts is a one-of-a-kind! The goal is not about making you look ready for the beach, but it’s about getting you ready for a level of health and fitness that allows you to do things you never even dreamed you could do.
