Scripture for gym walls

Me and a few of my bros at church have gotten permission to turn a vacant room on the bottom floor of our church into a gym. I know as of right now it won't be just for CF, but I'm working on convincing the other guys to CF with me. Admittedly, I'm not much of a biblical scholar (and a fairly new Christian at that) so I'm looking for some scripture relating to fitness, strength, etc to put on the walls. Wish me luck on converting my bros to CF!

Proverbs 27:3
Stone is heavy and sand a burden, but provocation by a fool is heavier than both.

Matthew 11:28-30
28"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light."

Habbakuk 3:19
The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer's [feet], And He will make me walk on my high hills.

Re: Scripture for gym walls

Revelation 19:17-18

17And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

18That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

Re: Scripture for gym walls

Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air. No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize." I Corinthians 9:26-27"


This is a great one for trainers and coaches. Practice what you preach!

Re: Scripture for gym walls

Wow! This is the first time I haven't felt the need to crush a "religion" thread.

Let's make sure it stays on the "Health / Fitness / Perseverance" track, though, ok?

Re: Scripture for gym walls

General inspiration:

Ephesians 6:12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

2 Timothy 4:7
I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:

1 Corinthians 9:24
Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.

Isaiah 40:31
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Ecclesiastes 9:11
I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

These could be used to create WODs:
1 Samuel 20:36
And he said unto his lad, Run, find out now the arrows which I shoot. And as the lad ran, he shot an arrow beyond him.

2 Samuel 18:23
But howsoever, said he, let me run. And he said unto him, Run. Then Ahimaaz ran by the way of the plain, and overran Cushi.


(Here's a couple for the Parkour types):

2 Samuel 22:30 (also Psalm 18:29)
For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall.

Joel 2:7
They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks:
