Getting fit has been on your list of things to do for as long as you can remember but you just don’t have the time. Even when you get motivated and declare that this time will be different, the other priorities in your life crowd out your workout routine.

Christians are called to take good care of everything that they have and this includes their bodies. However, finding the time to work, take care of a family, contribute to your community, feed your spirit, and exercise regularly may feel like mission impossible.
