So, clearly, there is nothing wrong with a Christian exercising. In fact, the Bible is clear that we are to take good care of our bodies (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). At the same time, the Bible warns against vanity (1 Samuel 16:7; Proverbs 31:30; 1 Peter 3:3-4). Our goal in exercise should not be to improve the quality of our bodies so that other people will notice and admire us. Rather, the goal of exercising should be to improve our physical health so we will possess more physical energy that we can devote to spiritual goals.
The Bible tells Christians, "Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is much more important, for it promises a reward in both this life and the next." (1 Tim. 4:8) Christian exercise videos provide inspiration and motivation for both.
The 45-minute Christian exercise DVD encourages Christians to begin their day with a prayer and a mile or two.

In today's culture people are bombarded by advertising to draw their attention off the things of the Lord, to satisfy their temporal desires. Think about it.

Christian exercise videos offer spiritual and physical help to combat the world's attempt to get you fat. If you're looking for spiritual help to get you exercising, an exercise video that also feeds your spirit might just provide the inspiration you're looking for.
