864 Strength + Conditioning – If it were easy everyone would be doing it.

But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
-John 1:12-13

“The issue of faith is not so much whether we believe in God, but whether we believe the God we believe in.”
-RC Sproul

There are 3 different cards at the gym (elementary school, middle school and high school) each card has a list of items. You can do this as an individual, couple or partner up with someone.
