Welcome! PLEASE READ FIRST!

Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. - 1 Corinthians 10:31

Thank you for stopping by to check out my new blog - Christian Athlete Fitness Training. I am a Christian, and I have had a passion for health and fitness since I was 14. I am interested in being strong, fit, lean and athletic.

I thank God for giving me the opportunity to use my passion in a purposeful and meaningful way to help others. I have been searching for my purpose all my life with no clear idea of what I was created to do, but it has become more and more clear to me just recently. This blog and the posts are not intended to teach you scripture (although I will reference things from the bible if they apply) or suggest that you become a Christian. This is purely a way for me to use my passion and talent to help others. That is one of God's purposes for all of us - to help others.

My goal is to provide a variety of strength, conditioning, fat loss, fitness, nutrition and health tips that cuts through all the nonsense and differing views of all the "internet gurus" who have never lifted a weight or followed the practices they preach. This will be based on my research and, most importantly, real-world experience from the many years I have trained myself and seen what works and what doesn't.

This blog is intended for everyone - Christians and Non-Christians. I hope that you will gain valuable information for your physical (and spiritual) needs through this blog. Although I may quote scripture at times, I will not push "religion" on you or make you feel guilty for not being Christian or any of that other nonsense that we have all experienced. Trust me, it's hard enough for me to stay on the right path (I mess up many times every day), so I will not condemn, judge or belittle you in any way regarding your belief system - However, I'll let it be known that my patience does wear thin from people "not getting it" when it comes to strength, fitness and health. But I will use this blog and my experience training others to become more patient.

I started this blog to give you the information you need to meet your strength, fitness, nutritional and health goals in a simple way. I said simple not easy. Doing these things requires hard work on your part. But you will reap the benefits of what you put in and hopefully live a long and happy life because of it. Feel free to contact me with questions and be sure to sign up to join my blog. Let's get started!
