See How Christians Can Navigate the Booming, Vain and Status-driven Fitness Industry
Author Nathaniel Birner
Sept. 8, 2023

LEANDER, Texas, Sept. 8, 2023 /Christian Newswire/ -- Nathaniel Birner, Michigan Lutheran Seminary graduate and owner of a strength training gym in Cedar Park, TX, announces the release of his new book, "God's Fingerprint on Fitness."

After leaving the church entirely, spending 18 years in the fitness industry, then finding his way back to Jesus, Birner is ready to shine a biblical light on the state of the fitness industry, self care, body image and shame. The book is a useful guide for any Christian looking to integrate fitness into their spiritual practice, as well as the Christian coaches and influencers who are leading them.

"I'm super excited that my book is finally released after more than two years of study and trying to separate the eternally valuable lessons from the damaging character traits that the fitness industry has to teach us," said Nathaniel, author and owner of Fit Goal Culture. "As someone who has been overweight and in great shape, graduated from Seminary and spent almost 20 years in the fitness industry, has been far from God and in deep relationship with Him, I'm excited to share an honest and biblical evaluation of the way your fitness journey intertwines with your walk with God, and then give a practical framework for how to apply it."

Nathaniel Birner has a rich story to share. Readers of his new book will catch a glimpse into his life to see a story of overcoming challenges and learn what really happens deep in your soul when you reach the goals you set for yourself.

The fitness industry is projected to grow at a rate of 33.10% per year until 2028, relative to which there is a severe lack of qualified coaches who haven't themselves made fitness their entire identity. "God's Fingerprint on Fitness" was created as a definitive guide to help Christian's struggling with health fit fitness within their spiritual practice, and to help Christian coaches and leaders effectively encourage them while keeping first things first.

Nathaniel also offers a free training titled "A Christian Framework for Sustainable Fitness" that uses the biblical frameworks found in his book to break down how to incorporate fitness into your routine in a realistic and God-pleasing way. Visit www.natebirner.com/freetraining.
