Re: Scripture for gym walls

2 By the [fourth] day [the crossfitter] had finished the work[outs] he had been doing; so on the [fourth] day he rested from all his work[outs]. 3 And [Coach] blessed the [fourth] day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating [the daily WOD post] that he had done. ---Genesis 2:2-3 NCV (New Crossfit Version)

Re: Scripture for gym walls

Not sure if this has been posted:
Isaiah 40:31 "But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. they will walk and not faint.

Ivan, ya beat me to it! This verse was on the wall of my collage gym. The place had such crappy machines all one could do was run in order to get a workout.

Re: Scripture for gym walls

First Maccabee, 3:19: For the victory of battle standeth not in the multitude of an host; but strength cometh from heaven.

That book is not in most Bibles, but is really good. Here's a w/fs link:

http://www.earlyjewishwritings.com/text/1maccabees.html

There is a book, My Glorious Brothers, based upon it. Not as good as Gates of Fire, but in the same league.

Re: Scripture for gym walls

Some things never leave you:

The Sovereign LORD is my strength;
he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
he enables me to go on the heights.
-Habukkuk 3:19

And from Psalm 18...there's a lot in Psalms of War. Ha...

28 You, O LORD, keep my lamp burning;
my God turns my darkness into light.

29 With your help I can advance against a troop;
with my God I can scale a wall.

30 As for God, his way is perfect;
the word of the LORD is flawless.
He is a shield
for all who take refuge in him.

31 For who is God besides the LORD?
And who is the Rock except our God?

32 It is God who arms me with strength
and makes my way perfect.

33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
he enables me to stand on the heights.

34 He trains my hands for battle;
my arms can bend a bow of bronze.

35 You give me your shield of victory,
and your right hand sustains me;
you stoop down to make me great.

36 You broaden the path beneath me,
so that my ankles do not turn.

Proverbs 27:17

As iron sharpens iron,
so one man sharpens another.

Carpe Ferrum!

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

Re: Scripture for gym walls

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God
1 Corinthians 10:31

This is the one that actually signaled to me that I needed to get my life and weight in order.
