About This Activity

FIT 4 THE CROSS was started in 2013 by Lisa Bennett, a TCS parent and Wellness Liaison at Body Workz Wellness.  She had a vision of sharing her God-given talents with the local community.  After diligent prayer and focus on how to make this vision a reality, she received a call from Jonathan Gallo, a teacher at TCS.  Mr. Gallo, an avid CrossFitter asked her about volunteering her time and expertise as a personal trainer to begin a wellness program for the staff and teachers at TCS.  Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.”  

FIT 4 THE CROSS began as a small group of TCS staff and teachers, meeting a few days per week with a common desire to combine a daily physical training philosophy for the mind, body and spirit with a common desire of Christian Fellowship within our community.  We believe the benefits of physical exercise will enable us to better serve our students, school, local churches and our community.  We also believe this will strengthen our relationships with other Christians by developing our discipline which will enhance our Faith in God.

The overwhelming achievements from the staff and teachers at TCS, ignited the idea of hosting a Community 5K event.  Our first race was held in May, 2014.  Our desire is to encourage everyone in our community to become active in training their mind, body and spirit.  We appreciate your interest and desire to partner with us in making our community an overall better place to live.  Get involved, tell a friend and add to the movement!
