PrayFit: Your Guide to A Healthy Body and A Stronger Faith in 28 Days
>> PrayFit: Your Guide to A Healthy Body and A Stronger Faith in 28 Days, which is available in December, is a fantastic, fundamental guide for anyone looking for a renewal of faith and fitness. The book includes 56 days of daily devotionals, complete exercise programs for both beginners and intermediates, as well as full meal plans to speed your results.
Faith and fitness are on the decline. Increasingly, we are losing ourselves in the pace of inbox-frenzied work weeks, over-indulgent meals and hectic family lives. We stopped making time for our health. We stopped making time for the Lord.
Christian fitness expert Jimmy Pena, MS, CSCS, spells out his solution for getting us back on the path to spiritual wholeness and abundant health in PrayFit. This effort, which represents his life’s passion, walks the reader through 28 transformative days of easy-to-follow, biblical-based study and progressive exercise for people of all skill levels.
“The intersection where faith and fitness collide is my sweet spot,” he says. “Everyone deserves to treat themselves to a deeper relationship with the Lord and a stronger, healthier, better looking body.”
With nearly two decades worth of experience as a trainer, author and consultant in the fitness industry, Pena puts his expertise to work against what he calls “the church’s ever-widening waistline.”
In PrayFit, he teams with Pastor Jimmy Page, the National Director of the Health & Fitness ministry for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and diet and nutrition authority Dr. Jim Stoppani, the senior science editor for Muscle & Fitness and FLEX magazines. Together, the three help readers lay a groundwork for a healthier lifestyle, carried out in the Lord’s presence – all from the comfort of their living rooms and in only minutes a day.
With its simplistic structure and available online resources, PrayFit will benefit everyone from the executive-on-the-go to the stay-at-home mom, from the seasoned gym rat to the first-time exerciser.
PrayFit is leading the exodus out of physical and spiritual complacency, one day, one devotional, one rep at a time. In Jesus’ name we train…

It certainly does that but more importantly, it will pump up your spiritual fitness level as well. I look forward to sharing it with my colleagues across America and the world. But whatever your calling, this book is for you.”
