 A Look Inside the Fit For Joy Book...

OPENING CHAPTER

In my late thirties, I became a certified personal trainer and winning fitness competitor. This was an exciting time in my life. I was healthy and in the best shape ever. I had come a long way to be where I was. Most people admired my fit body, strength, and enthusiasm for fitness. What they didn't know was that there was a secret about me...

THE BOOK IS FOR ANYONE WHO...  

  • Feels the call to express their truth in the heart. 
  • Knows we are born to be joyful and healthy as a whole: body, mind and heart! 
  • Is aware that to love is why we are here but hasn't found a way to open the heart and express it. 
  • Is anxious and depressed living a life that doesn't fit the soul, and is searching for self-development and spiritual growth. 

FIT FOR JOY PRESENTS AND OFFERS... 

  • A holistic approach to fitness through creative and spiritual practices for the experience of self-knowledge, health and joy. 
  • Personal true stories of a heart in search of true expression – the challenges, the triumphs, the love, the wonder, the joy. Strength training in a program of spiritual growth. 
  • Ideas of how romantic relationships can become a door to spirituality. 
  • The Fit for Joy Fitness Center – a project in progress which readers will be contributing to its realization. 
  • The importance of using your creativity to connect with the deepest part of yourself.
  •  The vital importance of living a life guided by the heart.  
  • You will be able to identify the connection between fear, anxiety, unhealthy habits and the matters of the heart.
