Personal Training – Why?

Participating in and directing fitness events, weightlifting, and running are my favorite hobbies. I call them hobbies, but it is really a part of my lifestyle. When I started moving away from a sedentary lifestyle to an active lifestyle for improved health and confidence, it just became my hobby also.

At this point, I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and I hold a specialized certification is Performance Enhancement.

But the main goal of my fitness journey is to extend and invigorate the mission I have been given by my creator; to share the Gospel of Jesus for as long as God has me in this flesh tent. And to help others do the same.

You see, my father was 46 years old when he had a heart attack and had stents implanted in his heart. He is a twenty-year Army veteran. Both of my grandfathers died in their mid-seventies, both hard working men, neither of them had an office job sitting behind a desk all day like me.

In my late twenties and early thirties, stress and poor eating habits started causing physical issues in my body. I was overweight, lacked confidence, had odd stress induced issues like my heart racing and my prostate swelling, I wasn’t in a good place physically. I wasn’t being impactful in my career or in the kingdom work.

But one day, after having decided that I had to make a change, someone told me how their personal trainer had told them about an App to help them understand their nutritional intake and needs. I looked it and started using it. Within a year, I had lost thirty pounds. I have now logged my daily nutrition and exercise in this app for 1802 days consecutively and I’ve lost sixty pounds while building lean muscle (I’ve reached my goal body fat%). Good habits are formed after twenty-one days I’m told.

After the nutrition was under control, then the fitness needed work. A co-worker of mine, who was also a knowledgeable fitness trainer, started working with me at the gym. And after a few weeks, I was a full-blown gym enthusiast.

Of course, stress still happens in my career and in life. But the physical issues that accompanied the stress years ago are no longer there. If I start feeling frustrated, I release that with a good workout session instead of eating something that isn’t fueling my body for the mission. My confidence to speak with others and to share my thoughts has increased as my physical health has increased. And this helps me to be more impactful in my home and community.

I created the Flesh Tamers Fitness program to help others lose weight, become heart healthy, increase lean muscle mass, build self-confidence, and extend their mission for God’s glory. I want to help you reach your health and fitness goals.

Anything you see for sale on this site, like the Clothing, affiliate items or even Consulting and Digital offerings will help fund this mission of Flesh Tamers Fitness.

My fitness programs are low cost compared to industry standards, and they are partially funded by the other items on this site.

The Flesh Tamers business expenses are in paying the monthly fees for the App (in the app stores and online at http://fleshtamersfitness.passion.io ), the advertising to get more people into the program and the cost of producing the videos and remaining certified and up to date in the latest fitness trends.

This isn’t a non-profit, but my goal is that eventually the fitness side of the house is funded and expanding.

If you are interested in a personal training program that is Christ centered and results oriented, check out my latest brochure below and contact me for other options as needed.

Ladies, you are welcome to join as well. My wife, Jamie, will guide you through the programs that I build for you, and we’ll help make sure you are successful.

My Elite Training Aid

It doesn’t matter if you are doing cardio, resistance training or power focused exercise, training the body each day depletes vital nutrients from our bodies. That’s why proper nutrition is important.

One of the supplements I use is called Elite. It isn’t my only source, but it has a distinct set of vital nutrients to help me relax, reset my hormonal balance, and fortify my body’s needed nutrients.

Create Your Own Branded App (Like I Did)

Do you coach clients, either full time or as a side/passion job?

Maybe you are a pastor or church that wants to have an app to share video or written lessons with your members on a nightly or weekly schedule. Are you a health coach, and you want to teach others how to eat clean, healthy food? Or possibly you are a sports coach or fitness professional (Yoga anyone?). Want to teach others how to play piano?

I wanted the Flesh Tamers Fitness app to allow me to coach fitness clients with timed and sequential daily routines and allow me to create Bible studies with videos and the written word.

The branding part was important. I didn’t want to be part of someone else’s app. I wanted my brand. I wanted my logo to be the icon that my clients clicked on their phone or tablet. Not Facebook and not some other social media platform.

By combining the online coaching “craze” that’s taken over the world, paired with in-person coaching, it’s possible to reach people across the world… While delivering a higher level of service to in-person clients, with extra benefits, support, and education. And it’s all fully automated.

The result?
Happier clients and/or more engaged members
More freedom
Healthier bank balance

But building an app sounds complicated, right? It doesn’t have to be!

When I found Dan Harvey’s webinar and saw all the benefits that Passion has to offer – I jumped on it. He has helped me build an app for my own coaching business and it’s revolutionized my relationship with my clients. Flesh Tamers Fitness is my passion.

With the help of Dan and his team, I now have an online coaching business that works on MY TERMS and my clients love the new experience with my app.

Dan will show you how to transition your coaching business online. He’ll help you understand your target customer and how to reach them and he’ll even show you how to get paid to build your app! Really.

I want to recommend his upcoming training that set me on the path! Register for it here: https://onechristianman.com/lets-build-an-app-for-your-passion/

He covers:
∙How to create your app 10x quicker and cheaper than you think
∙How to turn strangers into clients… on autopilot
∙How to get paid up to $10k to launch your app

The last section is my FAVORITE – really clever and honestly mind-blowing because I always thought it would take forever to build an app and would end up getting really expensive. But Dan’s approach totally flipped my perspective.

The free training is about an hour-long, and worth every minute!
I highly recommend checking it out.
