About Us


Our Mission

4:13 Fitness Club is designed to help each of us incorporate our physical selves into our worship of and pursuit of God.  We seek to steward well the gift of body God has given us and to worship Him in body, mind and spirit.  

We do this through a combination of movement and Scripture -- be it weights, stretching, Holy Yoga, Tae Kwon Do, boot camp or whatever.  Physical exercise often leads to an open mind and spirit to receive God in fresh and unique ways.  

Our Faith

We welcome anyone from any faith perspective, but our platform is based on Christianity.  (Please email or call if you wish to see specifics to our Statement of Faith.)  Philippians 4:13 -- I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me -- is our motto and provides the focus for all we do.
