Most of us have made the decision to go on a diet and incorporate an exercise program. Many of us have lost interest or found it more difficult than we thought it would be. The result was failure. We didn't reach our weight loss and health goal.

Laurette Willis, personal trainer, public speaker and author of Basic Steps to Godly Fitness, provides solid information about why our diets can and often do more harm than good. Willis offers her vast experience with health and fitness to provide us with a biblical approach to fitness: a Christian alternative to yoga. She believes her program will encourage our spirit, refresh our souls and nourish our bodies.

Willis provides practical suggestions to turn dull exercises that we really don't want to do into acts of worship. She gives simple and useful steps to better incorporate nutrition and fitness into our daily lives. These steps will bring lasting results. Willis discusses ways to overcome destructive thought patterns, make healthy choices and discover how forgiveness will free us. And she shows us ways to grow in our relationship with God.

I found Basic Steps to Godly Fitness to be interesting, logical and easily understood. I personally found the information on stress to be a reminder that is worth reading and then re-reading. The photographs accompanying the exercise descriptions were sound and easily followed. And there are suggested menus and a few recipes that contain ingredients that most people have in their kitchens.

This is a prayerful diet and exercise program worth taking a look at.
