The Fitness-Spiritual Connection

At the beginning of each day, I try to spend about five-ten minutes reading the Gospel reading and reflection. Well, I felt compelled to share my reading today because it goes along with training the body physically, as well as spiritually:

“Mass offers us an opportunity to have our eyes opened to see Jesus more clearly. All we have to do is be alert and fix our hearts on him. All we have to do is ask the Spirit to help us, and we will get a new taste of God’s love. So whenever you pray or receive the sacraments, try to sense the Spirit at work. You may feel love for Jesus rising up in your heart. You may feel moved to repair a wounded relationship or to tell your family that you love them more often . God wants to give us demonstrations like these so that we can all become great witnesses to his power in the world”.

The Lord wants us to take care of our bodies and if we fix our hearts on HIM , the Spirit is who leads us to improving our lifestyle. How about taking it one step further & ask the Spirit to help you during your workout?   

While training clients, I ask them to really focus on the muscles they are supposed to be using. They visualize that particular muscle working & I notice their form is much better! 

God created our bodies & knows exactly what it needs and when. If you focus & really listen, the Spirit will tell us EVERYTHING we need to know and will help you perform the exercises correctly. 

Imagine what we could do if we just focus & allow the Spirit to move us while we are doing any task, even exercise! It is not magic. It is not a coincidence. It is the power of the Holy Spirit ! 

It is your responsibility to do what the Holy Spirit is moving you to do!

It is your responsibility to do what the Holy Spirit is moving you to do!
