The dictionary defines "movement" as "an act of changing physical location or position or of having this changed." I placed the emphasis on the last part because if you dont get off the couch and get moving, you could end up with the coroner "moving" you! We need each other, and Steve does an excellent job of providing a plan that will help you get moving on your own and become a healthier you!

Ive known Steve since the 1970s, when we were football teammates at Liberty University. As a running back, I depended on Steve to open big holes for meand he was big enough to open gaping holes! Over the years, Ive had the privilege of training more than 1,300 NFL players and some of the greatest athletes in the NBA, MLB, MLS, NHL, PGA and in professional tennis, and I stress to my pros that total fitness means being physically, mentally and spiritually fit. No matter what your current level of fitness, Get Off the Couch will motivate you to get up and move! We all need to be the most fit Kingdom players possible.

I believe you must be able to lead yourself before you can properly lead others. One area of importance is physical fitness. If you do not get adequate exercise, eat the right fuel, and get enough sleep, you limit your effectiveness. Get Off the Couch shows how to experience personal renewal and maximize your energy. Steve Reynolds lays out a clear plan for getting the most out of your body and making the greatest impact for God.

Being an NFL agent, most people think I spend a lot of time on the couch watching sports. It is true I love sports and closely follow it, but I still make time for regular exercise. Get Off the Couch is my kind of book, and I highly recommend it. It shows men how to spend time in their man cave watching some sports and still take care of their health. So, lets get off the couch!

ifor38specialLorton, VAAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Good Book, Good ProgramJanuary 3, 2013ifor38specialLorton, VAAge: 45-54Gender: maleGet Off The Couch: 6 Motivators To Help You Lose Weight and Start LivingPastor Steve Reynolds is a fantastic Pastor, and a good guy! Since he himself has lost over 120 LBS with his program and has put it in writing (Bod4God,Get Off the Courch) available on DVD soon, and it's well worked for him, I signed up some time ago and still going strong. My successful results are documented in his new book "Get off the Couch" and I still continue His programs up at His Church (Capitol Baptist) to this day.
I just got back from my Doctors with her results from my blood test, and they are the best in a long time if ever. Even when I was playing Football in Texas back in High School, I don't recall numbers so good. My Pulse is below 60. My Blood Pressure has dropped below the Heart Association recommend levels, and I now exercise most everyday and not just pressing a cold drink on the Sofa while watching a football game. In fact, I am now using 10 LBS dumbbells performing Bob Harper's exercise Video's for about an hour each morning.
Pastor Steve is in it with you. He continues to loose himself. He will be there. He is honoring God with his Body and helping other people do that as well. In addition, Pastor Steve is pretty funny guy with a great sense of Humor (In Church too) and I believe you will enjoy reading this book while you get a new perspective on things.
Since I've been in the program, I've run (2) 5K's and increased my time by 10 Minutes this year. I play Full Court Basketball (Part of Loosing to Live) on Saturday with Men ages 16-58, and we don't just play Horse or shoot free throws, we play hard. I'm also on the Church SoftBall Team in the Spring but the point is that this is a result of being in Loosing to Live and following Pastor's Program. He has expert Doctors, Nutritionist, Trainers, Chef's, and Spiritural and Motivation Speakers come in and talk with us, and while on the program you always have your Teams and entire Church Support. So get off the Courch and get Started, you will be glad you did and so will your Family.
