The single most essential positive influence in life boils down to one thing: every day, every minute, every second of your life. You need to grow, learn, and change for the better. Christ calls us to this when He says, "Be ye perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect." And it's the only way to start and maintain a fitness program. But if you don't desire to grow and change, you absolutely won't... and all the information, spiritual direction, or personal training won't make a difference.
You can start today with the help of Kaiser Johnson's book Grit & Glory: Cross Training Your Body and Soul. He begins by laying out the central principles for a healthy physical life, as well as the principles for a healthy spiritual life...which coincidentally are the same! Kaiser goes through the building blocks of losing weight, improving performance, getting stronger and leaner, as well as the building blocks of detachment, improving virtue, and becoming more disciplined. These principles apply both to men and women, young and old, and the fitness plans and spiritual fitness plans are adaptable to different goals and starting places.
With the knowledge and power you gain from Grit & Glory, the daily actionable steps will become natural so that you continue to grow in fitness and virtue for the rest of your life.
