The workout is a great stress reliever
A exercise bike,treadmill, rowing machine and free weights
To drive the worries of the world away and put me in a healthy state
To cool down and no longer have a fever.
The workout makes me stronger
I challenge my body to new heights
So I can use my mind to go new heights
The goal to live healthy and longer.
The workout can take on so many dimensions
In the gym,a long walk, run or playing team sports
During this pursuit you may find the love of your life to court
For others a solitary journey to relieve tension.
The workout can make a disabled person feel whole
The goals achieved can be small or large in this physical life today
It can be a spiritual event to meditate and pray.
So you see the workout is not something to dread
We have the chance to refresh the soul
We are given a temple the body with good actions to control
To take care of our bodies and be God led.
