Why I'm Passionate About Fitness: My passion is to send people off into their ministry fully equipped; spiritually, mentally and physically. Often times the physicality of ministry gets overlooked. Too many people will face and suffer from burn-out once they are launched out onto the ministry battlefield. Statistics speak for themselves: 1 in 10 will retire from ministry, the rest will have quit. I desire to be a small part in helping to reverse these numbers. As soldiers of Christ, enlisted into His army, we need to be fully suited in His armor upon leaving the training camp. 1 Corinthians 9:26-27.

Why I'm Passionate About Fitness: My passion for fitness is about hunting and fishing for men. The Holy Spirit is always on the move glorifying the person of Jesus, which means to join in His ministry, we must also be on the move. Being caught up in something bigger than ourselves requires us, as children of God, to be physically, emotionally, and spiritually fit. My heart is for an awakening of the church to walk out the text; going to the ends of the earth, seeking the lost sheep, and bringing them safely into His pasture. John 10:16 "Come on Fish"

Why I’m Passionate About Fitness: Having suffered from 7 car accidents and various other traumas, I was not able to move adequately and the doctors told me at 23 that I would need medicine and surgeries to function. But someone else showed me differently. She helped me rebuild from the inside out. With an epidemic of fads and painkillers, I hope to help others function at their fullest capacity without further harm. For 11 years, I have been able to help people with various restrictions (physical, nutritional, emotional, and spiritual) have hope again.
