The 2015 Athletic Business Conference and Expo is being held November 18- 21 at the Ernest N. Moral Convention Center in New Orleans, LA. Wednesday November 18 will be dedicated to an entire day of seminars and sessions as part of the first annual Redefined - a Faith and Fitness Conference. I'm extremely excited to be one of the presenters at Redefined, and we hope to inspire, encourage and motivate a future generation of new faith and fitness leaders and ministries around the world!

My presentation will be on the history of the fitness industry, and why I believe it's important for churches to embrace fitness as a part of their overall outreach and ministry efforts. The health club industry continues to explode, with the total number of health clubs in the United States doubling in the past 15 years alone! The science and research clearly shows that exercise keeps our bodies and minds healthy. You can't be your best version of yourself if you don't take care of your body. As Jim Rohn once said, "Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live." More and more churches are realizing the impact that fitness ministry can have on their congregation and surrounding community. Make your church the go to place everyday, not just on Sundays. Exercise Faithfully.

I look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!

Peace, health and happiness,
