About this item

A Biblically grounded, six-week plan to lead you on the path toward losing weight and getting healthier by focusing on the connections between spiritual and physical health.So many of the books within the diet and fitness space focus on vanity or superficial reasons for striving for personal health and wellbeing. Is it any wonder then that a motivation that's so surface-level has such a slim chance of working long-term? But Alec Penix believes that all things are possible if you use faith as your bedrock. In Seven Sundays, celebrity trainer and devoted follower of Christ Penix explains the connection between faith and fitness, and both his own and shares his clients' success stories. When our spiritual and physical bodies are built up simultaneously, we find ourselves more likely to stick with healthier, life-changing habits, appreciate what we have, be thankful for what we've gained (and lost) , and feel content with how far we've traveled.
