Reviews - What do customers think about Ten Commandments of Faith and Fitness?
A must read for firming up and trimming down May 31, 2008
The TEN COMMANDMENTS OF FAITH AND FITNESS is a must-read for anyone and everyone who is serious about being in seriously good shape. It's well organized and packed with information that explains the "how" and "why" for competitive athletes as well as beginners wanting to firm up and trim down.
As a former, injury-prone athlete with a growing waistline, getting back into and staying in shape was becoming increasingly difficult. TEN COMMANDMENTS OF FAITH AND FITNESS grounded my efforts with scientific truths and a practical, proven step-by-step approach. The authors also gave me the spiritual inspiration for weaving physical wellness into a hectic and unpredictable daily schedule.
If you read only one book on the topic, this is one that can help you reach--and reap--the full benefits of fitness.

Speaks to the soul! Feb 6, 2008
More than the usual fitness book which alternates between nagging and pep-talk, this book offers encouragement, hope and inspiration, as well as a practical road-map. From the spiritual wellspring, we are guided to care for the bodies and minds God has entrusted to us. It's still a daily climb for me -- but isn't that appropriate to the season of Lent, and our entire spiritual journeys? -- The Rev. Rosemary Beales, Ellicott City, MD
