Christian Workout Programs vs Regular Workout Programs

For Jesus and the culture

Dear Reader: 

Last week we talked about EXERCISING- the dreaded concept. I know, me too. I hate hate hate it.You can try a Christian workout program, or you can try a regular workout program. This week we  will discuss the pros and cons of Christian workout programs vs. regular ones. We will also give our opinion on which one is better.

Benefits of a Christian workout program 

As someone who has tried both Christian and regular workout programs, I can say that both have pros and cons. First, let’s look at Christian workout programs. One of the main benefits of these programs is that they provide a sense of community and support. Working with other Christians makes you feel like you are part of something bigger than yourself. Additionally, many Christian workouts incorporate prayer and Scripture reading into the routine, which can help to motivate and inspire you. On the downside, Christian workout programs can be expensive and may not offer the same variety as regular workout programs. 

Benefits of a regular workout program 

Now, let’s look at regular workout programs. They often have a diverse range of exercises, making them ideal for people who want to try new things. They also tend to be more affordable than Christian workout programs. One downside is that you may not feel supported or connected to others in the class.

How often should you be working out to see results 

While there are many benefits to working out regularly, it can be tough to find the time to fit it into your schedule. If you’re trying to lose weight or build muscle, you may wonder how often you need to work out to see results. The good news is that you don’t need to spend hours at the gym every day to see improvements. Most experts recommend that people exercise for 30 minutes 3 times  per week. However, the frequency and intensity of your workouts will depend on your goals. If you’re trying to lose weight, you may need to work out more frequently, and if you’re trying to build muscle, you may need to lift heavier weights. Ultimately, the best way to determine how often you should be working out is to consult with a certified personal trainer. They can help you create a workout plan that fits your needs and schedule.

Exercise has also boosted mental health, reducing stress and anxiety and improving mood and sleep quality. Working out routinely can increase energy levels, improve brain function, and even help to fight off depression. So whether you choose a Christian or a regular program, get up and move your body! Just go for a walk! How about right now?!
