      “So what I really loved is that the instructor was able to give me modifications. I have a back injury so, it was nice that there were modifications that could be made. Don’t be afraid if you need modifications, the instructor’s great about helping you to do something that will not be dangerous for you.”

      “I love coming to the Fit for the King workouts because I could go to the gym and get the world or I can come here and be filled with the Spirit. I love that in part of this workout, we get cardio, we get weight bearing exercises (lots of it), and you do that same thing at the gym, but with that spiritual addition, I just love it. And we’re a family here.”

      — Nancy

      “I think it’s been a great help to me. It’s given me an incentive to even eat better, and along with the physical fitness I’m getting through the boot camp, I think it’s doing a world of good for my health.”
