I’m a CrossFit athlete. I’ve been training and competing since 2010. I love everything about CrossFit: the training style, the community, and of course, the results.
On average, I spend about 8 hours a week at CrossFit. That’s more than 1 hour a day.
If I could dedicate that much time and commitment to CrossFit, then why was I only spending 15 minutes with God each morning?
In January of 2015 I changed all of that.
The Bible says in 1 Timothy 4:8
“Physical training is good, but training for godliness is much better, promising benefits in this life and in the life to come.”
I didn’t eliminate CrossFit. Instead, I used it as a tool to tell myself “Alex, you already know how to dedicate yourself to physical training, now do it for spiritual training.”
Want to know something even cooler: My spiritual training is also 75% of my BUSINESS training. I get all of my blog post ideas from my time with God in the morning.
The first 2 hours of my day are dedicated to the training of my self, my brain, my soul.
Godpreneur Rule #5: Physical training is nice, but Godpreneurs wake up early for brain training every weekday morning.
