Introducing The Woman Behind Body Gospel Workout

By Marcus Dodd

Body Gospel Workout is the premier faith based weight loss program created by fitness guru Donna Richardson. Donna has spent many years helping people bring their faith to their fitness. Born in Maryland and currently living in Texas, she has long sought to create a spiritual foundation to helping people get healthy.

Donna turns to 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 for the scriptural inspiration for her vision. This passage states that you honor the Lord by caring for your body as it is the temple of His Holy Spirit. With this guiding principle, she has developed her fitness programs, written books, lectured, taught, and worked on behalf of a president.

She wrote the best-seller "Let's Get Real: Exercise Your Right To A Healthy Body." Donna also hosts the exercise video called "Sweating in the Spirit", a precursor to the Body Gospel Workout program. Both of which include some of the best gospel music by contemporary artists. She finds the inspirational music to be a key component of her program as it helps you praise the Lord and honor Him by caring for your temple at the same time.

In addition to videos and books, she also presents two different television programs that provide regular faith based fitness advice. Her shows are "Sweating in the Spirit" and "Donna Richardson Show".

Due to her success as a Christian based fitness guru, she has been able to work with a variety of prestigious groups. She has lectured in more than 40 countries, with such organizations as Sisters in the Spirit and God's Leading Ladies. She has also worked as a board member with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America and the Women's Sports Foundation.

Donna has also been recognized by Oprah Winfrey as one her "Top 5 Fitness Video Instructors" and Fitness Magazine on its list of the "Top 10 Movers and Shakers".

Donna was also appointed by President George W. Bush to sit on the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. In this position, she was helped advance the council's mission to bring health and physical activity to more Americans.

Passionate about physical and spiritual well being, Donna Richardson has brought all her experience and faith to her Body Gospel Workout program. By using inspirational music and starting each workout with a prayer, Donna helps you connect to the higher power that can fuel your purpose in losing weight.
