but I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.Matthew 5:28
If you have been to any gym lately, whether to lift weights, do cardio, or for any other reason, you have undoubtedly seen the unholy display of lust. People wearing outfits that leave very little to the imagination, and just as many people staring at them.
Are you in either of those groups? Is that what God's will tells you to do?
God's will is for us to follow the churches teaching, that lust should not enter our heart. That lusting for another is not only hurting our spouse, but sinning against God.
Spiritual fitness is a way to prepare yourself for any and all lustful situations, not only the gym, but the beach, the pool, even a birthday party. Our goal is to teach you how to prepare yourself before going into the situation, and what to do if you are having lustful thoughts in the situation or location.

Galatians 5:16-21 - But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh. For the flesh sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.
