Yes, we're strong in our faith.  However, this is not a holier than thou, feel good, scripture quoting training program.  I will kick your butt hardcore and get you into the best shape of your life (In Jesus name of course).  Jesus was a stud physically as well as spiritually.  He was strong enough to take a beating that would kill most men and then carry a 100 lb. piece of splintery lumber for a 1/2 mile.  Tough mudder!  

Our goal is to help you overcome your hurdles and reach your goals.

EXTRA, EXTRA, READ ALL ABOUT IT!

OUR WHY

WHY I DO WHAT I DO:  Because you will weather the storms of life much better when you are spiritually and physically fit.  You will also perform better when the sun is shining on you.

After several years in the fitness industry God gave me the unique vision of Christ Fit Fusion that only He could have inspired. Don't take that as some mamby pamby, low energy, zen state, fitness program.  It's an extremely high challenge, life changing process.   

Through various life experiences including successes, failures, physical injuries, kidney donation, addictions, divorces, unemployment, depression etc I have learned that life can be hard.  We all experience our own personal ups and downs (storms) that we need to be strong for.

To be physically fit you have to put in the hours and pay for it with blood sweat and tears.  There is no magic bullet.  You can't be fit eating one meal a week  and exercising sporadically here and there.  You must train and be consistent.  But how many people of faith try to be spiritually fit on one sermon a week and very little spiritual exercise.  Not to get too preachy here, but hopefully you made the correlation.  The Christ Fit Fusion philosophy uses several similar analogies to build a bridge between physical and spiritual fitness.

  I firmly believe and have seen it be true; that if you eat a healthy spiritual and physical diet, exercise spiritually and physically, and do them both consistently, you can't avoid getting results. When your spirit is strong you can accomplish anything through Christ who gives you strength.  Even lose weight and get in shape and take care of the body He has given you.

I have known Rusty Nokes for at least 20 years, in business, as a personal friend, as a client, and as the inspiration that he is. It is fair for me to say that I know nobody else with the heart, soul, generosity, dedication to life and genuine caring toward others as Rusty. An example of who and what Rusty is; Rusty Nokes gave his kidney to a person he barely knew because that person needed it to survive, If that isn’t an example of a truly inspirational, upstanding, caring, giant of a human being, I don’t what is. Rusty Nokes has a larger than life presence with a heart to match it and I am proud to call him my friend. David Shor, Producer – Santa Barbara, Ca 

 

Christ Fit Fusion is about being fit for life. It’s a simple formula of eating and exercising spiritually and physically. It’s a formula I agree with, believe in, and promote. Rusty has experienced enough of life’s struggles to know that when you address the health and fitness of your spiritual life the other elements of life become easier to manage.  Check out his fitness book in San Antonio Kimberley Payne, HEALTH MATTERS RADIO 


Many will talk about getting fit as a "lifestyle change," and then coach you about diet and exercise. What Rusty Nokes does here is take it an extra step, and it's all important. His message is both simple and genius. Rusty asks his readers to improve their whole-selves, not just their bodies. He doesn't want you to just improve your mind, your thinking only. He wants you to improve your soul, too. Mind, body, and soul. That's the blessing this book will bring to you. It will get you thinking and acting as if each action -- each bite, each push-up, each step -- is a journey that will take you closer to God. The reward is not vanity. It's not about six pack abs. It's about embarking on a journey to Heaven, and by doing so working in synchronicity with God's plans and purpose for you. Much of what Rusty says here has been said before, but no one before has paired powerful spiritual lessons with life lessons about being fit physically, mentally, and spiritually. He tells you to do your cardio, focus on the core, and build balance and flexibility. He tells you to work hard, respect yourself, be thankful for what you have, and so on. And then he coaches you to pray, and read the Bible, and walk humbling with your Lord. Food is fuel to work in God's service. Workouts are where you deny self and train for temptation later in the day. Can you muscle out one more rep? Then you can muscle out the will power to walk past the snack machine, or resist making an impulse buy on a credit card. You can hold back from cursing, and then soon you find the peace inside to love your neighbor. All the while, you are getting physically stronger, and Biblically wiser. What a perfect combination of personal goals! Shawn Fisher, Harding University Professor  


It is so easy to be caught up in the business of life. But in the end what does it matter? The daily tasks… work, bills, errands… Even the family needs can sometimes overwhelm us. How many times I didn’t eat all day or exercise, blaming the day for taking away my opportunity. But in the end it is my choice… nothing and nobody can take away my choice to take care of myself. Grounding myself with the understanding that I am a beautiful creation of God and knowing my time to care for, nurture and live in this body is temporal is critical to making the right choices for quality of life. Christ Fit Fusion addresses this at the core! Fit to accomplish all of the tasks and meeting the family needs in every way follows taking care of ourselves. As I approach 60 years, following the theme of Christ Fit Fusion has enabled me to be successful in every way, including continuing to play sports with my teenage grandchildren! Knowing I am responsible to my Father-God for my total being, spirit, mind, body and soul is the ingredients to enjoying and conquering life! Joseph Natale, INTENSIVE HEART VENTURES 


This journal is an excellent way to get your mind right and put you on track for both spiritual and physical fitness. Definitely a good kick start to his program. Jim Scribner, Insurance Agent / Personal Training Client 


Excellent program! Rusty Nokes works hard with each individual to strengthen the mind, body and spirit. This is the best gift you can give yourself to get strong and balanced and truly healthy. Rusty is very knowledgeable and genuinely cares about the people he works with, making exercise something to look forward to. The secret is truly the FUSION of CHRIST and FITNESS.  Check out The Christ Fit Fitness Book in San Antonio.  Jackie Lancaster, Artist / Personal Training Client 


I love the concept of intertwining our physical growth with our spiritual growth. It is an easy read with good analogies and motivating tips. I am blessed enough to attend Rusty's classes in San Antonio, TX. I have always struggled keeping up with a healthy eating and exercise lifestyle. I really feel like this concept has added the missing link. By adding the spiritual I already feel further along than I have in many other programs! My heart, soul, and body are lighter! – Jil Watson – Boot Camp Client
