Matching Faith and Weight Training: A Perfect Combo?
While this won’t be perfect for all ways of thinking, the Get Centered fitness program can really offer a new viewpoint on how you accomplish your training. Based outside of Texas, this program combines religious teachings with your exercise routine. I don’t judge anyone, based on their beliefs, so I can understand why this will only interest a certain portion of my readers. By talking about this gym, I’m not speaking to my personal beliefs, as I feel that should be a private matter and it will continue to stay so. After all, you come to this website to (hopefully) learn about new ways to lift weights, not who or what I believe in.
With that aside, it is interesting that a program like the Get Centered is just now being announced, it is just a great idea that I would have thought someone else who have made this into something but I guess not! No matter what religion you could practice, I think that we can all agree that for people to have a place where they can go and believe what they want to is a nice thing to start or end your day with. For the certain person, I can see that having their faith, which is obviously going to be very important brought out, in a discussion format could be great. This gym offers the group members where they can find solidarity and peace, in a no judgment zone. I could see a gym having a place where the members can talk and share their experiences is such a great idea.
I always want to see people getting along and what better way to have that taken care of than to use their shared interests as a starting point for conversation? I do also have to admit that I like how their courses don’t just gear you up for success in your fitness program, they also have life teachings put in place to steer you through and give you more direction in life. I had sure wished that my gym had put some people in place to advise me of what I could in life. I understand that this second wish would be much harder to grant and not an aspect of life that we would all need, I used to run with a bad crowd.
While you may or may not agree with the values that are taught at Get Centered, I have to say that is really something I could see catching on very rapidly. When considering that the main purpose of Get Centered is based more around what you believe versus how much you can lift, you’ll likely see a wide array of people at the next Get Centered class, which is great! Somewhere in Texas, there is a group of people who are enriching their lives by being able to freely bring in their chosen beliefs and values with them, proudly and that must be an awesome feeling. With such a wide variety of people all around you, it is very easy to get some new viewpoints on what you might be struggling with in your life. You will never want to just settle on your own way of thinking to solve a problem, you’ll be amazed at how nice it is to share your struggles with others.
