Publisher's Description

One day Chantel Hobbs had had enough. She vowed to lose weight and keep it off for good. And that's exactly what she did. Nearly 200 pounds lost and years later, she shares with readers the power of the world's most natural exercise--walking. Almost anyone can do it, it rarely causes injury, it costs very little to get started, and it can be done anywhere at any time. Better yet, it affords exercisers the opportunity to connect with their Creator.

Complete with workout routines, tips on proper shoes and nutrition, recipes for power shakes, and even a free download of a thirty-minute walking workout that includes music and Chantel's coaching, Walk Strong, Look Up is the whole package. Chantel also reveals how walking and praying at the same time both intensifies the workout and adds a spiritual component to exercising that helps readers maintain their energy and enthusiasm. Anyone who desires a stronger body and a deeper connection with God will love this book.

Chantel Hobbs does not believe in shortcuts, at least not when it comes to losing weight. And while her book, Walk Strong, Look Up, may seem like a course on an easy and relaxed weight loss method, HobbsÂ’ methods are anything but simple and easy.

The fitness coach makes readers work out both their bodies and their minds. Hobbs does not even begin to cover the steps to her walking exercise method without first taking several chapters to talk about her own experience: what she learned and how readers can learn it, too. The first part of her book focuses on the "why" behind our decisions to lose weight.

Hobbs then spends a few chapters in Part 2 covering the actual exercises, then moving on to talk more about the spiritual side of losing weight, as well as some tips for healthy eating and explanations of how the body and calories work. Throughout Hobbs challenges her readers to take the hard road, the road to a permanent solution for weight loss. Although some of her guidelines for the walks may be challenging, especially for those with wandering minds and short attention spans, they will help those willing to give full effort establish a routine.

Routine walks provide peaceful times for reflection and easing of stress, and they are wonderful opportunities for spiritual growth, Hobbs writes. Integrating exercise and spiritual discipline helps believers to "present [their] bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God" (Romans 12:1). Hobbs' thought-provoking insights and practical advice force readers to at least consider getting past their objections to exercise. Anyone willing or dedicated will find Hobbs' writing the motivating factor that leads them to Walk Strong, Look Up. - Harmony Wheeler, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

    Walk Strong, Look Up is a book that approaches the discipline of exercise from two directions: the physical and, more importantly, the spiritual. Chantel Hobbs knows what it is like to be overweight and out of shape. Due to her own experience with conquering weight issues, she is sensitive and compassionate in her attempts to relate to and motivate those who are where she herself has been.

    This book does exactly what the author set out to do: she gives the reader the knowledge and the tools to get into walking with the goal of fitness in mind; moreover, she encourages the Christian reader/would-be-exerciser to see their walking time as a time to be with the Lord in prayer and as a time to praise Him. For this I praise her.

    Chantel inspires her readers with the story of her own success with losing weight and getting and staying fit. She also writes rather in depth about how to approach and plan one's own weight loss/exercise routine. She covers everything from recipes for power shakes to the best way to chose an exercise shoe.

    This book is an encouraging, comfortable and comforting approach to health issues with many personal anecdotes thrown in. I do have some issues with it but, overall, I find it valuable. It is a book that many will benefit from.

    DISCLAIMER: I received this book for free for purposes of review from the Revell Blog Tour Group. I was not required to give a positive review, only a fair and honest one. My opinions are my own. Walk Strong, Look Up is available September 2011 from your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

    So, what gets you through those tough runs or those long walks during your exercise time? What thoughts circle your head? For me, I use my run as a time to thank God for my health and His creation. When I focus on the parts of my body that are working overtime, I try to thank Him for allowing me the opportunity to run when some people are so sick that they can't even get out of bed. I use that time to simply thank Him for all I see while I run. If I'm burdened over someone or something, I also use that time to lift that up to Him, as well. If I'm running near the high school, I also remember to pray for my therapy clients and my children who will one day be at that age, as well as any kids I work with that I know are in school.

    This book is combining exercise with God. Too often, we separate these when in all honesty, exercise provides the perfect time to spend with God in conversation with Him. Chantel Hobbs lays out a walking plan (for those who need somewhere to start), but also pairs it with things you are to meditate on each week. It's a month long process with each day spelled out for you. Packed in the pages are recipes, nutrition information and answers to some of the most asked questions.

    Chantel Hobbs is a motivational speaker, a life coach, personal trainer, marathon runner, wife, and mother of four. She's been featured on many magazines, television shows, and radio programs. If you're looking for something to help change up your exercise routine, give it a try. If you're looking at getting into exercise and have no idea where to start, start with this book.

    Looking for a way to get you motivated to get moving? Walk Strong, Look up by Chantel Hobbs may just be the book for you. I have tried in the past to get moving and walk every night... but many times I have failed at my efforts. In this book, Chantel gives you step by step instructions on those little things that can help get you motivated. At the end of each chapter, she has what I would call a heart to heart section... with questions for you to answer and think about. One thing she states in her book, is "don't walk along...bring HIM with you". Bring Jesus with you on your walk... make it not only a time of exercise but a time to pray and meditate on the Lord. She also give great advice on buying the right type of walking shoes. She has great recipes for shakes and meals in the book as well.

    This book has great practical way to help you get moving... one thing I really liked was the walking routine she mentions... a week by week routine to get you started and not burned out!
