5 Star Amazon Review
"This book not only addresses one's physical and nutritional needs, it moves you to reflect upon your spiritual needs, and guides you to getting them all in order."
"My wife and I read this book and attended the very first workshop presented by David and Joe. For me, this book is a wonderful discipling tool that has literally changed my way of thinking about taking care of my body, and the reasons why I want to take care of my body. It has motivated me for the the right reasons, which are to make myself fully available to Love others for God's Glory!"
"This was a very motivating book as well as very informative.You need to have all things in line and not just -physically fit. God, family, fitness, when you have all there and are mentally, physically, emotionally "healthy" all things come together."
"As a trainer, I love how Fit For The King, gets to the marrow of life's purpose, and that is stewardship. I believe that if all trainers would teach with this philosophy clients would have a higher success rate. No longer being chained to a scale, a false worth, an unobtainable image of perfection but a sense of freedom from the failed diets, failed workout plans to a new person that is alive, both physically, and spiritually. Every Personal Trainer and Fitness Trainer needs this book."
"David and Joe take a balanced approach between physical and spiritual wellbeing. The bottom line is that our bodies are a stewardship from God. Many lifelong blessings are to be found in managing our physical being according to eternal, spiritual principles. Reading this book will help you to grasp how proper nutrition and exercise make you fit for everyday life as well as the abundant eternal life of Christ. READ & APPLY!"
"We are being inundated with books on diet and fitness that have their moment but do not seem to make a lasting impact. What I like about this book is the solid biblical foundation supporting the practical encouragement. The book is written in a very personal, engaging style. But it is not lightweight. This is not about a quick fix, but an inner transformation for the long haul. What you will remember when you are done is who you are in Christ (if you know Him) and where our real battle lies. I recommend this to anyone interested in how our spiritual understanding determines our lifestyles."
