Episode 14: Liz Faison – You Can Be Fit After 40
About the Show
In this episode, we’ll be talking about basic tips for achieving and maintaining health and wellness after 40 through exercise and clean eating.
About the Speaker
Liz Faison and her husband started Fit for Christ because being fit is not only physical, but spiritual and emotional. They noticed a huge gap in the personal training industry when addressing the total wellness of a person. They also didn’t agree with the highly charged sexual atmosphere, and wanted to provide a safe environment for women and men to train, while maintaining their integrity. Liz trains women and her husband trains men. They also pray with each client at the end of each session. They offer nutritional recommendations to balance the physical training, and provide training in person and via SKYPE. You can learn more about Liz at www.fitforchrist.us.
Liz is offering “5 Do’s of Being Fabulously Fit After 40”. Visit her Facebook page to download.

Excerpt from our interview — BEEP Model
Now, we’re going to move on to the BEEP round. Liz will give quick tips on the four disciplines of Bible study, eating healthy, exercise, and prayer or BEEP. So what do you have for us for a quick tip for Bible study?
Bible study, do it first thing even before you workout. I do it within the first 15 minutes of waking up. I have my scriptures set aside. I have my guide. I don’t turn anything on. I don’t turn my computer on, my TV. I don’t even wash my face first. I do my Bible study first and it sets the tone for the rest of my day.
And your quick tip for eating healthy?
If it comes in a box don’t eat it. God didn’t make it in a box. Eat your food closest to the form that God made it.
“If it comes in a box, don’t eat it.” Wow, that’s fantastic. I love it. And your quick tip for exercise?
Weight train, weight train, weight train. And I do 30×5. 30 minutes of cardio, 5 days a week. 30 minutes of weight training, 5 days a week.
So you do weight training every day. You obviously do different muscle groups on different days.
Oh definitely. If we’re maxed out and we’re on vacation or something we may do three days of total body but we skip a day in between. Or we’ll do high intensity interval training. Or do body weight exercises especially if you’re traveling because you don’t have access to a gym or to weights.
I love body weight training. It’s nice to shake it up. Those are fun, especially if you can do it outdoors.
Oh yeah, on the beach? Wonderful.
And your quick tip for prayer?
Put on your spiritual armour every single day when you pray. My daughter and I have done that—my youngest daughter—since she was three. We put on our armour every morning and every night before we go to sleep. The second thing is we always ask for the fruit of the Spirit. We do those two things and we pray for our children’s future spouses, and our future grandchildren, great-grandchildren and that our lineage will know Christ intimately.
