Always in search of the magic bullet, I came across a new resource that I’m trying out myself and wanted to share with you. It is The 10-Minute Total Body Breakthrough , by Sean Foy and Nellie Sabin.
Sean is a coach and exercise physiologist who has designed a twelve-week program that literally takes 10 minutes a day to perform. It can be done at home, using your own body weight or a few inexpensive pieces of equipment, like a jump rope, stability ball or resistance band. Many of these tools are available at discount clothing stores like Marshall’s, Ross, and TJ Maxx at significantly lower prices than at sporting good stores. The book lies flat, so you can follow along as you exercise.
Most people who resist exercise do so because it takes too long, or because they are intimidated by going to the gym and facing spandex and strange equipment. How about making your Advent discipline be ten minutes of daily exercise at home? I will if you will.
Yours in health,
