Body Gospel aims to combine religion with fitness, helping you get fit and connect with God at the same time. If you’ve ever thought that gospel music would be good music to do exercises and aerobics too, you might have found the perfect chance to try it out. But can adding a bit of spirituality really make a workout program more effective, or is this just a gimmick in order to sell more units?
This is another production by the BeachBody group, and they’ve got a knack for finding a niche market in the fitness industry and then producing a product that caters to it. Body Gospel is no different and it probably didn’t take a math whiz to realize that there are over 2 billion Christians and many of them probably want to workout and get fit. Hence was born this new fitness video that
Body Gospel claims that you can inspire your soul and transform your body by following this fitness program. They show people that have lost anywhere from 9 to 58 pounds, and although they don’t go as far as claiming that you will too, the underlying claim is that you will lose weight with their program, it’s just a matter of how much.
The hype is that it might seem like they are exploiting religion in order to sell a fitness program. But they do a good job of taking it seriously, by incorporating prayer into the beginning and end of each workout, and by using gospel music to do the exercises to, it’s combining something people love, with something that is good for them, so it seems to be alright that they are combining the two.
It’s $95 total to have Body Gospel delivered to your door, and comes with everything you’ll need to use the program. That’s 8 DVDs, resistance bands, access to the member’s area, and more. They also break it up so you don’t have to pay it all at once, and have a satisfaction guarantee in place so you can try it out without worrying if you’ll be stuck with it.
Just like with any workout program you have to commit to using it regularly. What makes Body Gospel easier to commit to is that they start the sessions with a prayer, so if you’re having a lousy day, you can just start your workout get a prayer in, and immediately start feeling better about things. Before you know if you’ll be in the middle of a workout and you might have forgotten what was giving you a hard time before.
You’ve got to have faith if you want to stay with a fitness program long enough to see results. Faith in yourself, faith that God will give you the strength to go on, and faith that you’ll see results if you just stick with it long enough. Jesus said blessed are those that believe without seeing, and you will definitely need to do that, as many of your results will not come immediately, so you need to see them before they arrive.
This program does a good job of being religious, and being earnest about it, but not to the point of making it all about religion. it focuses most of the attention on the workout, and about feeling good, which is good at keeping you motivated and happy, which is key to sticking it out for the long term.
What People Are Saying
People really love this, and even the people that said they didn’t care for it, still said that the production value was high, and the instruction level was excellent. This is true for most BeachBody productions. The only question is, if the instructor is effective, and the video looks crisp and clear, what’s not to like? The package is not just DVDs but also equipment to help you with your resistance training. It’s a full-on system for less than $100, so it’s easy to see why most people feel like they got a good deal with this.
Final Body Gospel Review
If you resonate with the concept of Body Gospel, then you should definitely try it out to see how well it works for you. The BeachBody gang is great at making effective workouts, making them look great on the DVDs and finding hosts that won’t bore you to tears, or annoy you with their corniness. If you’re a religious person that enjoys listening to gospel music, you’ll definitely enjoy this.
It’s good to treat fitness as a spiritual endeavor, because by bettering yourself you’re making the world a better place, and really it’s your only point of power. By tapping into that part of your that is striving to be more God-like, you should be able to access deeper levels of motivation, commitment, and determination.
