SAME OLD DEAD EXERCISE TIPS? NO WAY!
Jason Rhymer, Training Department Editor says, “ The twelve exercise tips I’ve developed for this event might change your life. I could have easily supplied a ‘nice’ list of the same stuff you read in any fitness magazine --- but this is for Easter. After you look past bunnies and marshmallow peeps, we know the real Easter story is one of profound mystery and triumph. It's a story of unprecedented love and sacrifice that no one could fully understand and that still baffles us today. It calls us to do something that to many is crazy - take up our own cross and follow Jesus. So, no ordinary exercise list would do.” The twelve fitness tips in this event are out-of-the-tomb fitness challenges compiled from years of Jason leading boot camps, noticing common movement deficiencies and identifying how to overcome them. The fitness component of this event will help you in physical preparation for Easter.
Hope Egan, founder of BiblicalEating.net helps make each day leading to Easter a spiritual preparation through eating. Her daily contributions are simple and easy for you to do. However, they can bring significant change and growth in your life. These twelve healthy diet tips also help set the stage for the April/May 2013 issue of Faith & Fitness Magazine that has the theme The War On Junk Food.
Each daily email includes links to selected articles from the magazine. Together, the short Celebrate Easter devotional, Bible verse, fitness tip, nutrition tip and magazine link will help you get each day started well and help build to a rich Easter season. We look forward to celebrating the miracle of Jesus Christ with you!
