Overview

Men! It's time to get up, get moving, and get healthy for a better future. According to the Center for Disease Control, there are over 150 million men in the U.S., and one third of them are obese, leading a large percentage of them to struggle with chronic lower respiratory diseases, diabetes, and heart disease. Steve Reynolds, the "Anti-Fat Pastor," writes from the perspective of a pastor/coach who has sat where you are likely sitting: on the couch living a sedentary life. "My wake-up call came when my health started to deteriorate to the point where I was slowly killing myself," he writes. He went to the Bible and learned how to have a Bod4God lifestyle, and the result was losing an incredible 120 pounds!

In Get Off the Couch, Steve Reynolds outlines an in-your-face call to A.C.T.I.O.N. with simple and practical solutions designed to get you off the couch and back into the game of truly living life:

Aware: of the risks of continuing unhealthy lifestyle and of the "playbook"--what the Bible says about health
Commit: to getting off the couch and into the "game of life"
Transform: the way you think and live to leave a powerful legacy
Incorporate: simple basics of eating healthier and exercising
Organize: how to put this all together so that it remains doable for a lifetime and how to develop a team for success
Navigate: developing a game plan for health that works and making your "dash" count

    Get Off The Couch is an excellent study guide for helping men to

    Get Off The Couch is an excellent study guide for helping men to discover the joy of getting off the couch and leading a more rewarding life. Author Steve Reynolds caught my attention with BOD4GOD and now has followed up with this great help for men. I lost 68 pounds following the faith-based teachings of BOD4GOD and now I can't wait to see the results as I glean the information from Get Off The Couch! I'm so excited about it that I've started a men's weight loss group at my church using this book as the study guide. The easy to understand principles and how to apply them to my life has given me great expectations!

    Get Off The Couch: 6 Motivators To Help You Lose Weight and Star

    Get Off The Couch: 6 Motivators To Help You Lose Weight and Start LivingPastor Steve Reynolds is a fantastic Pastor, and a good guy! Since he himself has lost over 120 LBS with his program and has put it in writing (Bod4God,Get Off the Courch) available on DVD soon, and it's well worked for him, I signed up some time ago and still going strong. My successful results are documented in his new book "Get off the Couch" and I still continue His programs up at His Church (Capitol Baptist) to this day.




    I just got back from my Doctors with her results from my blood test, and they are the best in a long time if ever. Even when I was playing Football in Texas back in High School, I don't recall numbers so good. My Pulse is below 60. My Blood Pressure has dropped below the Heart Association recommend levels, and I now exercise most everyday and not just pressing a cold drink on the Sofa while watching a football game. In fact, I am now using 10 LBS dumbbells performing Bob Harper's exercise Video's for about an hour each morning.
    Pastor Steve is in it with you. He continues to loose himself. He will be there. He is honoring God with his Body and helping other people do that as well. In addition, Pastor Steve is pretty funny guy with a great sense of Humor (In Church too) and I believe you will enjoy reading this book while you get a new perspective on things.




    Since I've been in the program, I've run (2) 5K's and increased my time by 10 Minutes this year. I play Full Court Basketball (Part of Loosing to Live) on Saturday with Men ages 16-58, and we don't just play Horse or shoot free throws, we play hard. I'm also on the Church SoftBall Team in the Spring but the point is that this is a result of being in Loosing to Live and following Pastor's Program. He has expert Doctors, Nutritionist, Trainers, Chef's, and Spiritural and Motivation Speakers come in and talk with us, and while on the program you always have your Teams and entire Church Support. So get off the Courch and get Started, you will be glad you did and so will your Family.

    I bought four copies of this book to give to the men in my life

    I bought four copies of this book to give to the men in my life as Christmas gifts but couldn't wait and have given all but one of them early! I love this book--I have read it cover to cover. It is inspiring, encouraging, and easy to read. The steps to change are logical and amazingly simple-men and women alike will benefit from reading this book!
