Get Fit Keep Fit

We all like to be fit and healthy but don't want the hassle that we have to go through to get there.

Health - no one wants to be ill, and we do not really want to die prematurely if we can help it! However, no one likes the check-ups and the 'don't eat this and don't eat that' regime that seems to go with good health. 

Fitness - fat and flabby. Don't call me that I hear you say! No one wants to be unfit, but the discipline of doing exercise seems to be more than most people can manage. Going to the Gym once is ok but going regularly seems to beat most of us.

Did you know that Brits waste a staggering £558m a year on unused gym memberships? More than one in 10 people say that they have not stepped foot inside their gym for a whole year.

A poll of 1,000 gym members found that 11 percent said that despite paying an average of £47 a month - that is £564 a year - on a gym membership they had not gone throughout a whole year.

A total of 21 percent said they visited their gym just three times a year - meaning each visit cost them £188.

Asked why they did not visit their gym - despite paying through the nose for the facilities - 25 percent said that when they had gone it was ‘too busy’ and they could not get on the machines they wanted to use and had to queue up.

Spiritual health – Maybe you do not really think it is that important just now! Wait until you are dying you will then! What if your life is cut short! Will you wish that you had paid more attention? I hear lots of people regret not trying harder at school, not giving more attention to their first marriage but it is too late now. These issues are important but not as important as your eternal destiny.

The Bible advises in the book of Amos that people should Prepare to meet God, Amos 4.12 (the Bible). Focus and preparation are essential if any of us are going to achieve anything. This one area of life that we cannot afford to ignore.

The truth is - if you seek the Lord He will be found, if you call upon Him, He will hear. The Bible says – ‘whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord will be saved,’ Romans 10.13 (the Bible)

 Get fit, seek life and pursue it.
