Why is it so effective?
Body Gospel combines the feeling of empowerment and purpose you feel at church with what may have previously felt like an impossible struggle— dropping those extra pounds and getting healthy. Donna’s program, full of prayer and set to exhilarating gospel music, will have you working out and worshipping at the same time. She helps you understand that exercise is a form of praise, and that taking care of our bodies is indeed a form of worship. In fact, getting in shape and eating healthily will give you more energy to take care of your obligations and serve God.
What makes Body Gospel unique?
Body Gospel is a fitness program specifically designed for people who live in faith each day. Drawing on the strength of that faith to support both physical and spiritual transformation, the program motivates you to lose weight and get fit while you grow closer to God. All the components of Body Gospel are linked by the belief that with God’s help, anything is possible. Donna’s cardio and strength training workouts, the easy-to-follow nutrition plan, and the Stepping in the Spirit audio CD emphasize that by relying on Him, you can positively transform yourself in mind, body, and spirit.
