Unlocking the mental & spiritual benefits of fitness

01

Walk For Wisdom

"Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble." Proverbs 13:20 NLT

Walking is important and we all know about the 10,000 steps a day we should aim for. As you walk take that time to be with God. Walk in the Spirit and speak with him. Sometimes just listen as you walk. Walking will activate your body and brain more and over time thoughts will just pour into you. Record them. If you feel like sharing your thoughts post on social medial using #walk4wisdom.

02

Run For Rejuvination

“Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.” Ephesians 4:23 NLT

See running as a way to become clear headed not just physical exercise. Once you run you will be able to think clearly. This is a time to become mindful over your surroundings and be in the present moment. As you run record thoughts and wisdom for yourself. If you feel like sharing your thoughts post on social medial using #run4rejuvenation.

03

Pray & Plank

When it comes to praying we must humble ourselves before God. When you perform a plank you are already on the ground. In between planks place your knees on the ground and pray to our Almighty Father in Heaven. Then you can be strengthen your core physically and mentally when planking. Gain spiritual strength through prayer. For examples of prayer, see our Power Lifting post.


Start planking for 20 seconds then superset that with 20 seconds of prayer. We all need to start small, but starting is big for all of us. Over time build up to a 1 min plank or even a 2 min plank. Superset that with prayer to keep going and feel encouragement.

04

Performance Play

Training can become stagnant overtime and lead to burnout. Sustainability is important as we grow in life. Sometimes we lose interest and forget why we started in the first place. God wants us to remain childlike and playful, so turn your workouts into play.



Examples:
  • 1) Monkey bars in the park
  • 2) Running up and down a hill various ways
  • 3) Running trails just like you were as a kid
  • 4) Grab a medicine ball and play catch with yourself
  • 5) Picking up a kettlebell and just swinging it various of ways
The idea is to play and take stress off the mind. Only then can we have enjoyment in the journey. Stay tuned for example of play workouts on our social media pages under #performanceplay

Armor Building


Truly transformed into a Godly Warrior through Training and Application.


“Put on the full armor of God [for His precepts are like the splendid armor of a heavily-armed soldier], so that you may be able to [successfully] stand up against all the schemes and the strategies and the deceits of the devil.” - Ephesians 6:11 (AMP)

“So stand firm and hold your ground, HAVING TIGHTENED THE WIDE BAND OF TRUTH (personal integrity, moral courage) AROUND YOUR WAIST and HAVING PUT ON THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (an upright heart), and having strapped on YOUR FEET THE GOSPEL OF PEACE IN PREPARATION [to face the enemy with firm-footed stability and the readiness produced by the good news].” - Ephesians 6:14-15 (AMP)

These do not have to be daily, but seen as a PRIORITY:

  • 1) Belt of Truth: Build your character without compromising. Personal integrity & moral courage.

    Train twice a week:
    Core training & Lower body | Core of who you are.


  • 2) Breastplate of righteousness: Justice, postural training, able to stand upright with a just heart, strong & sturdy.

    Train one to two times a week:
    Upper body training & Postural workout.

  • 3) Shoes of the Gospel: Build conditioning level and overcome uncomfortable conditions by Inhaling Grace and Exhaling Peace. Share the Good News and peace of God to others.

    Train two to three times a week:
    Prepare to move, have a good solid conditioning base, and share the Gospel as you walk/run. Walk 10 min a day, run from 1-3 miles, incorporate prowler push and drag sled pulls.



“Above all, lift up the [protective] shield of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take THE HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” - Ephesians 6:16-18 (AMP)


These should be a DAILY practice & enjoyment:

  • 4) Shield of Faith: Belief that is strong, protective, no penetration, confidence, guard. Train Daily through believing in God's mighty power. That in a snap of His finger things can change suddenly for good. Once you fully believe in God and Christ. You will believe in yourself. Practically proclaim the ability of God's power and provision over your life. Also, put up guard rails. Limit anything that brings you down.

  • 5) Helmet of Salvation: Justice, postural training, able to stand upright with a just heart, strong & sturdy.

    Application:
    Inhale Grace & Exhale peace with breathing.

  • 6) Sword of the Spirit: Word of God. Read, write, and memorize. Let it sharpen you, shape you, and transform you. Make this time a priority by sitting down and read straight from the Bible. Start in any book and journal along the way. Later repeat a word or verse that struck you.

  • 7) Pray in the Spirit: Pray Persistently for others. Humbly Submit to the Holy Spirit. Listen closely and intently daily.
