Fit 09: Teri Dempsey: Fitness, Faith and Family
When we commit our fitness goals to the Lord, he will absolutely bless our endeavors. This is exactly the mentality of Teri Dempsey, my guest on Are You Real: Fit. Teri has over 20 years of personal training experience, with additional certifications in all kinds of athletic disciplines. She runs a small, private gym called Fit For My King, and hosts online and in-person challenges. Teri is a grace mentality trainer, and she works with women to empower them spiritually as well as physically.
Teri cites Proverbs 3:5-6 as her inspiration. When she is trusting the Lord the most, she finds that her goals are absolutely achievable. Today, Teri and I will talk fitness, faith, and family. I am excited for you to hear how Teri has been seeking God through her athleticism and her business. I think you’ll be inspired by her passion for Jesus and for other people!
