Baker Books, Sep 1, 2011 - Religion - 224 pages
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.
