The Layman's Fitness

12 Week Workout Program

This is not just another 12 week exercise program.

The Layman's Fitness 12 week workout program was designed specifically for the man in the pew.
Yes, this workout program will give you a 12 week roadmap for disciplined exercising. But there's more to it than that.
This program incorporates a "Practical Theology of Fitness", which is a 12 week series of written content paired with the workout program that will help you learn and think through body stewardship from a biblical perspective.
The "Practical Theology of Fitness" is theologically rich and is rooted in the conviction that God's Word is perfect and sufficient for all things (Psalm 19:7, 2 Timothy 3:16-17), including exercise and fitness. 
This 12 week workout program combines the "why" and the "what" for exercise to help you learn how to steward your body well for God's glory.

The workout program progresses you through 3 phases requiring 3 workout sessions per week, with an average time of 25-35 minutes per workout.

The "Practical Theology of Fitness" progresses you concurrently through the same 3 phases, with one piece of written content per week for 12 weeks. Each piece of content averages ~3 pages in length (~40 pages total).

The workout program will help you improve your stability, endurance, and strength by using bodyweight exercises, which can be done anywhere, at any time, and with minimal equipment.

You will receive the full 12 week workout program and the full "Practical Theology of Fitness" at purchase. You will also receive weekly emails with the upcoming week's workouts and the week's theological content to help you stay on track for the duration of the 12 weeks.

Workout Program

  • This program progresses participants through a series of three phases over 12 weeks to help improve overall physical fitness and strength.
    • Phase I: Stability
      • Focus: Muscle stabilization, posture, balance, and form.
    • Phase II: Endurance
      • Focus: Muscular endurance, higher intensity, and shorter rest while maintaining form. 
    • Phase III: Strength
      • Focus: Developing strength, utilizing bodyweight progressions, and going until failure all while still maintaining proper form. 
  • Each phase requires you to complete 3 workout sessions per week, with an average time of 25-35 minutes per session.
  • This program uses 20+ bodyweight movements as the foundation for all workouts. Bodyweight movements can be done anywhere, at any time, with no gym required. The only equipment required is a pull-up bar (or monkey bars at your local playground).
  • Every bodyweight movement used in the program has a corresponding instructional video page on the "'Videos" page on the Layman's Fitness website. 
  • Once you complete all three phases, you can start over at Phase I which allows you to repeat and recycle this program for continued value.
