Not only are her training sessions free, they also take place in a Christian environment.
“I love how Ruth incorporates Christian music in her exercise programs,” said loyal class member Allana. “I first joined Gospel Fitness in May 2013. Since then, I have felt stronger and fitter.”
Pioneered by Ruth, who is a qualified fitness instructor and personal trainer, Gospel Fitness is a free group fitness class for ladies only.
“It is open to all ladies in the community above 16 years of age,” said Ruth.
The class runs for 50 minutes, incorporating cardio and strength training, followed by stretching and relaxation.
Ruth, who also pastors with her husband at Victory Life Church Toowoomba, said while there is no cost for the class, members have donated generously.
“In December 2013, I visited an orphanage at Nairobi, Kenya, and had the privilege of donating part of our proceeds from Gospel Fitness to help the children,” said Ruth.
