TO GET US MOVING FOR THE RIGHT REASONS & TO SEE MORE THAN JUST PHYSICAL BENEFITS

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 Rejuvenation

“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

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.

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

“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:
2) Breastplate of righteousness
3) Shoes of the Gospel

“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
5) Helmet of Salvation
6) Sword of the Spirit
7) Pray in the Spirit
