About the Author
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The book focuses and provides guidance and inspiration in five major areas: Living Fit Spiritually, Living Fit Physically, Living Fit Physically, Living Fit Relationally, Living Fit Financially, and Living Fit Emotionally. He basically says that sometimes Christians just focus on their spiritual health, and they don't think about the importance of the other areas of their lives; to their detriment and to the detriment of their service to God. He stresses that all the other areas are important, and uses Christian principles to relate each of those areas to serving God, and that by making sure all areas are healthy, you can best glorify God.
Please note: There is no specific nutritional advice, guidance or diet suggestions in this book, nor is there any recommendations, advice or guidance regarding exercise, or physical fitness. When the author discusses Living Fit Physically, he speaks more about being present in the world, and being disciplined and appreciating the gifts that God has provided.
While this book is not to my personal taste, it is very well written, and I think would be very inspirational and motivating for those that wish to integrate their faith into all areas of their health and well-being, including their health, fitness, relationships, emotional exploration, and financial management.

Very readable and full of practical insights, Pastor Floyd speaks from his own personal experiences how he has learned the principles mentioned in his book. Will be a good future reference and reminder.
Floyd reminds us that just as the parts of the body are meant to work together, so are those things that many of us tend to compartmentalize. You know those people who think being a Christian is something they do on Sunday morning. But their finances, health, relationships, jobs and all the other things on that list are things that they’re in charge of.
But in this fun book Dr Floyd shows us how being healthy is more than just having your blood pressure and cholesterol under control. He walks us through a series of things that lead us out of compartmentalization and into a life of unified congruency. As we read on the back cover, “Ronnie Floyd will help you pursue a healthy tomorrow…spiritually, physically, relationally, financially, and emotionally.”
We all want to be healthy, and I find this book to be a great place to start the journey to a new and healthy you. Of course, you have to do more than just read it—you also have to apply the principles.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review. I was not required to write a positive review.
208 pages and 20 chapters.
Pastor Floyd backs up his writing with strong Scriptural references, encouraging his readers to live life with a purpose, to not take life for granted.
He encourages the reader to NOT compartmentalize fitness but to look at yourself as a whole person with spirituality at the foundation.
Much of this book was a review for me, but I did find the reminder and the structure meaningful. It's one you can continue to reference throughout your walk as we all need moments to rewind and recall what it means to be fit.
My favorite one liner is a poignant reminder as to what really matters.
