Your Survival Guide For The Holiday Food Gauntlet

We have officially entered the season of overindulgence, which will provide no shortage of opportunities to test your dietary resolve and bring ruination to your healthy eating plan. Just past was Halloween, replete with brimming bowls of candy at every office workstation, reception desk and, more than likely, your pantry (you bought them for

The Seductive Lie of Rapid Results

It’s the first week of January. This is the time of year when Christmas carols fade and the siren song of diet marketers promising “quick results” saturate print, radio, television and social media. When someone claims they can deliver huge financial returns virtually overnight we call it a “get rich quick scheme.” When they promise

Availability Personified

  Merriam Webster’s definition of the word “Available” reads as follows: Available : easy or possible to get or use : present or ready for use These definitions connote a sense of immediacy, responsiveness, and surrender. We might picture a construction worker with needed tools fastened to his tool belt, or an artist with a

The Myth Of A Compartmentalized Life

I’ve developed an online fitness challenge that typically runs in the spring and fall. People from across the country looking for a biblical perspective on health and fitness join together for 28 days to learn nutritious eating habits, healthy movement, and most importantly, how the gospel informs our body stewardship. I don’t know most of

Our Bodies, Our Stories

David Bush with Joe Tewell “I don’t know if I can do this!” Marci confessed as she retreated to a bench. We were just halfway through her second session warm-up and things were already unraveling. I didn’t want a scene in the crowded fitness center, but it was against my nature to let someone fold

Victim, Survivor…or Hero?

In just the past several weeks, we’ve been shocked by stories of man versus beast encounters at a zoo and a popular theme park. In separate incidents, an entertainer is gunned down during a post-concert meet and greet with fans, and 49 people at a nightclub are killed in a horrifying mass murder. Record floods

Resolution…or Revolution

What Black Friday is to our nation’s retailers, the month of January is to the growing number of fitness centers dotting our cities. Riding the wave of January resolutions to get fit, the profits made in the first few months of the year will carry many clubs through the balance of the year when memberships

How Do We Know When Enough is Enough?

  I caught a glimpse of scripture at my health club recently. Thanks to a bodybuilding college student who’s workout attire had received a skin-baring makeover from a pair of scissors, I couldn’t help but notice he’d tattooed “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me” across his ribcage. Always on the lookout

Your Spring Health and Fitness Do-Over

By David Bush A post titled “Spring Fitness Makeover” would probably sell better, but it’s just one of many title options we decided against in the name of honesty. The fact is, January’s Super Bowl Party, February’s Valentine’s weekend, and Easter’s post-church feast have typically waylaid the health and fitness goals you set the first
