Spiritually and Physically Fit!

NateCCA“I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.” – 1 Corinthians 9:27

Many Christians are spiritually fit but physically weak and sick. Fitness, nutrition, and health is our RESPONSIBILITY as stewards of the body God gave us. It is our duty to remain spiritually and physically fit for Christ.

“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.” – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

The verse above applies to all areas including fitness, nutrition, health, and all forms of abuse against the body (sexual, physical, alcohol, drugs, etc.).

It’s not about looking good or having six-pack abs. Although, form follows function and you will look better which will in turn make you feel better about yourself. Having a better self image and confidence are things you need as a Christian to give you the BOLDNESS, POWER and STRENGTH God has given us through the Holy Spirit. And good health means we can do what God has called us to do.

“For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of POWER and love and DISCIPLINE.” – 2 Timothy 1:7

Discipline your body through proper exercise and nutrition. Let it fuel you and provide the POWER and STRENGTH you need to be BOLD in Christ and to honor and glorify Him while fulfilling the purpose He has for you! God should be your inspiration and motivation to get fit and healthy.

I have spent a large part of my life immersed in fitness and nutrition as an intense hobby and passion and never had a clue why until God revealed the reasons for it in 2009 when I lost my  job and started Underground Fitness Revolution. I can help you because it is God’s purpose for me. It’s the reason He created me. He gave me gifts, talents, and abilities to fulfill this purpose in my life yo!

My current goal is to become as spiritually fit as I am physically fit. And although I have many more years of physical fitness under my belt than I do as a Christian, God continues to grow me spiritually each and every day the more I follow in His footsteps, listen to what He is saying, and follow what it is He wants me to do.

NateMissionAndPurposeMy spiritual fitness will quickly catch up and surpass my physical fitness in a lot less time than it took me to figure out the fitness, fat loss, nutrition, and health side of things. I’m eager to see what God is able to do through me once my spiritual fitness catches up to my physical fitness while loving and helping others and fulfilling my purpose in life.

“Discipline yourself for the purpose of godliness; for bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come.” – 1 Timothy 4:7-8

In addition to being the owner and Fitness Coach for Underground Fitness Revolution, I provide online coaching, accountability, support, motivation, inspiration, passion, and all the nutrition and training experience you need to succeed.  #DoWhatNateSays

I’m asking you to commit 15-30 minutes a day to get fit, lose fat, and improve your health. If you cannot do that, nothing else will work for you. No gimmicks, pills, potions, or any other fad or easy fix! Just consistency and hard work.

It will take discipline, commitment, action, better habits, and a lifestyle change but it’s all to honor and glorify God in the end and do what we are responsible for doing as Christians and stewards of our bodies yo!

“Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do ALL to the glory of God.” – 1 Corinthians 10:31
