Every once in a while when I'm around town someone will ask why Freehold has no fitness center, "If there is not a private one, why doesn't the City have one for its citizens? Good health is important."

I try to explain that going to a fitness center is a waste of time. If you do not sin, God will take care of your health. Those who sin will be punished, physically fit or not.

Especially problematic, I think, are coed centers. Men and women dressed minimally and sweating in full view of each other has moral implications. Those who believe there is something Godly about keeping fit do not know Satan's plan.

How much emphasis should Christians place on bodily exercise? | Voice (christianpost.com)



Isaiah 24:1-3 Behold, the LORD maketh the earth empty (2)...as the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. (3) The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken his word.

Exercise is a poor substitute for work - it's like practice work. Why practice, just work! If a man wants to lose a few lbs he should spend longer at the office, skip lunchbreak and volunteer for extra duties. The Germans knew the value of a good work ethic with their famous Arbeit Macht Frei. Work will set you free - almost better than prayer. The only thing I would add is, try to smile when you do it. There's nothing worse than scowling workers.

I always have to smile, when they say "fit" and I ask "for what?" Because that's what fit means, suited to some specific purpose. And if you buy something that's NOT fit for purpose, you get your money back. So what are they "fit" for?

Recently we had a very peculiar looking poster, like he'd been pumped up with air but in all the wrong places. He kept posting photos of other deformed persons (which I thought was cruel) and instead of praying for Redemption evidently they just kept on with the nutter machines.

The work a muscle can do is the difference between its relaxed state and its contracted state. If they're pumped up all the time, they can't really expand very much and therefore can't do much work. I suppose that's like a fire? Its value is the difference between when it's hot and when it isn't. If it's burning all the time, it's not much use to anyone.
