BeschreibungResearch over the last 40 years has documented the value of exercise and physical fitness, yet many are still very sedentary and overweight. Any lifestyle habit, such as exercise, will only be sustained if it has meaning and purpose within an individual's worldview. For Christians that worldview is defined by our faith. There is a rich Christian heritage in Scripture, the role models of Jesus and the Apostles, the thoughts and sayings of early Church fathers and modern Church leaders regarding our body and its relationship to spiritual and mental well-being.

A rationale based on Christian belief will help motivate a healthy lifestyle behavior change. Learning how to do exercise in a safe and progressive manner will help you to initiate and maintain a program. This book will teach you: The value of physical activity for spiritual reasons to live your faith to the fullest. The value of exercise for physical and mental health. How to become more physically active in a safe and effective manner. How to assess yourself, set fitness goals and design individual exercise and fitness programs.
