Fit for Eternal Life by Kevin Vost presents a Christian approach to physical fitness.
A Christian Approach to Working Out, Eating Right, and Building the Virtues of Fitness in Your Soul.
Train for Strength in Body and Soul
Is your spirit faithful but your flesh flabby? Has your Temple of the Holy Spirit begun to creak and crumble? Then let Fit for Eternal Life show you how to build it up again.
Most any workout book can help you bulk up or slim down, but only here will you find a truly Christian approach to physical fitness. As Catholic psychologist and veteran bodybuilder Kevin Vost (author of Memorize the Faith!) reveals, Gods command to be perfect applies not only to our moral life, but also to our bodies. By Him we were wonderfully made as creatures corporal and spiritual. The stronger and more enduring we make our bodies, the better we imitate Christ in whom perfect physical strength, endurance, and beauty were incarnated.
Best of all: it doesnt take a lot of time, special knowledge, or fancy equipment to do it. Dr. Vost explains the basic principles of strength and endurance training in a way you can understand (even if you havent been in a gym for years or ever), and then helps you assemble an effective, personalized workout program that can be performed in as little as twenty minutes per week, leaving you plenty of time (and energy) to be an active Christian parent, spouse, and disciple.
