SMART – STRONG - SERVING
Get ready to discover high performance college students. They excel in academic strength and physical fitness. For them, their Christian faith isn’t just a religious routine or family heritage. It is a driving force in how they live each day and a significant focus in their career development. They’re not just smart and healthy. They understand that God has given them a calling – one that is being crafted now. They have vision for an eternal impact but they also recognize that God wants to use them to transform tomorrow.
Our search for the Top Bods On Campus for 2016 has begun. Colleges can recognize one male and one female from their school: freshman, sophomore, junior or senior (if continuing into graduate studies). Any university campus can participate. Anyone (parent, friend, mentor, faculty, professional --- anyone) can nominate a student for the university to consider. What two students will represent your campus in 2016?

WHY RECOGNIZE THE TOP BODS ON CAMPUS?
In an era where college life for students is often marked by excessive self-indulgence, partying and a me-first attitude, these students reveal a passion for the enduring values of their faith. Among a generation that equates the university years as a high-priced right of passage to privilege, advantage and wealth, these students see their journey as a gift to prepare for service. They recognize that a greater wealth can be achieved as they give their knowledge, physical strength and vocational passion to God for the good of others.
Top Bods On Campus is much more than just recognizing students for a good physique or demonstrated athletic performance. Top Bods On Campus excel in three areas:
1. Academic enthusiasm and consistency – They are aggressively learning and learning well.
2. Physical fitness and whole life wellness – They eat smart, train for gains, and pursue God’s wisdom to practice balance.
3. Faith forward and other-minded – They embrace their personal faith in Jesus Christ as the driving force in their career goals, life passion and relationships with others.
RECOGNITION AND SO MUCH MORE
The Faith & Fitness Magazine Top Bods On Campus initiative does more than recognize hard effort and solid accomplishments. It will challenge these students to go deeper in their pursuit of God, their life planning and their commitment to being the life of Christ to others.
We believe universities especially Christian universities play an important role in shaping the lives of the next generation of fitness professionals who can shape culture and the lives of others through their Christian faith. We want to celebrate with them and the parents who are daily discovering that God is faithful to bless their obedience in raising these visioning young adults. To our readers – we extend to you some of the best examples of ‘faith and fitness’. These top bods embody determination, commitment, patience, vision and compassion – qualities that when lifted up from a Christian worldview will transform campuses, communities and generations.
Faith & Fitness Magazine and Lifestyle Media Group are committed to supporting campuses that promote wellness, help students build healthy lifestyles and pursue all that it means to BE LIFE.
Beginning in 2016 be looking in our College Fitness Department for stories that feature these students and highlight what God is doing in their lives.
