$10 Dollars Off 9-Minute Fitness Program
(Portico Users can use it for the
“Go Challenge” Too!)

Dear Colleague,

Sometimes you really can do two things at once.

Or in this case, THREE things at once:
  1. Get Your Body in Shape
  2. Save Money
  3. Earn Wellness Dollars

What’s not to like? :)

YES, You’re just in time to catch the Lenten version of 9Minutes2Fit!

In just 9 minutes/day...
  • you'll be on the road to fitness
  • qualify for your Portico Wellness Dollars as part of the “Go Challenge” and/or
  • save $10 Bucks to boot!

Here’s how it works...

Every weekday I’ll e-mail you a link to a follow-along workout video.

Together we’ll walk through each exercise in that day’s workout at 
  • beginner
  • intermediate, and 
  • advanced fitness levels.

Then I’ll start the timer and you and I will be exercising the body God gave us.

For 9 minutes.

Well, not the full 9 minutes…

We’ll really only be exercising for a total of 3 minutes and 36 seconds.

The rest of the time we’ll be resting. A little siesta!

How hard can that be, right?

But it works.

You’re really gonna like the way you feel!

Oh, and this is no little flash-in-the pan workout system.

It’s good over the long haul too.

For almost 4 years now I’ve done basically nothing but 9 minutes of exercise per day.

At the age of 53 I’m still in some of the best shape in my life and only exercising 9 minutes/day!
  • Without doing any long-distance running
  • Without doing a single sit-up or crunch.
  • Without plodding along some imaginary journey on a stationary bike to nowhere.

Now you can use this proven workout system too.

What’s more, if you’re covered by Portico, this program is a great-fit for earning wellness dollars through the “Go Challenge.”

In fact, I know a Portico representative who is planning to do just that!

So now it’s your turn…and here’s how I’d like to sweeten the pot…

Kent Wilson, Certified FAS (Functional Aging Specialist)

PS        Remember, for the next 33 weekdays (I take the weekends off) you can get me to lead you through a refreshing 9-Minute workout to kickstart your way toward physical health. And if you’re like most people, you’ll probably get an emotional boost as well. Just click here to get started.

PPS     We all have different gifts and passions. One of mine is helping people take care of the body God gave them. I really believe that how we take care of our body is a stewardship issue…a way of giving thanks to God for one of the very first gifts we’ve ever received. So if you’d like a little help in this department, you canbegin by exercising your index finger and clicking HERE.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What do you mean when you say that you are a Functional Aging Specialist?

This past fall I became a certified personal trainer with an emphasis on the physical conditions and functional needs of the boomer and senior population. FAS (Functional Aging Specialist) is the designation for this certification and I was among the first 300 people in the country to attain it.

What are the best reasons to use 9Minutes2Fit?

  • It engages your upper body, lower body, core, and heart and lungs in every workout.
  • It requires only short bursts of activity, which almost anyone can do
  • It adapts to people of beginner, intermediate, and advanced physical condition
  • The workouts are so short that they can easily fit into anyone’s schedule
  • The workouts can be done at home, which saves the expense of a gym membership and, more importantly, the TIME it takes to drive to and from the gym.
  • The workouts have plenty of variety, so you don’t get bored.
  • When the workouts are done, you feel like you’ve really accomplished something.
  • The benefit/after-burn from the workouts continues after the workout is completed
  • This form of working out is sustainable over the long-term (I’ve been doing nothing but this workout system for almost 4 years now and it keeps me in great shape!)
  • The nature of this workout system is backed by the latest exercise science.
  • 9Minutes2Fit combines: resistance training, aerobic training, circuit training and HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) into one super-effective and efficient workout.

Do you have a DVD version of the workouts?

Not at this time.

Do I need an Internet connection?

Yes. The links to the workouts arrive via email into your inbox.

When do the emails arrive?

Emails are set to arrive between midnight and 3:00 a.m.

Do I need any special equipment?

You don’t need “special” equipment, but there are a few things that you will want to have on hand including:
  • A pair of dumbells OR 2 milk-jugs filled with water
  • An exercise ball OR a rolling desk chair or other stable rolling device
  • An exercise band OR a good bunge cord
  • A chin-up bar OR some other secure overhead anchor to which you can attach the exercise band for overhead exercises.

What are the workout videos like?

The videos are filmed in my no-frills basement. Each video has essentially 2 parts. First I explain which exercises we are going to do on that given day and then demonstrate each exercise at the beginner, intermediate, and advanced fitness level. Then I start the 9-minute timer and I lead you through the workout. At the end I simply congratulate you for your great effort and sign off for the day. Most videos are in the 13-18 minute range.

Do I have to workout with the videos?

No. Each email contains a listing of the exercises that are part of that day’s workout. If you already know how to do all the exercises in that day’s workout, you can do the workout on your own. You will, however, need a 2-stage timer set for 18 and 27 seconds. You can either download an app for your smart-phone if you have one, or you can order a timer like I use. When you sign up, the first email you receive will include a link for that timer that you can purchase if you wish. Even though I now have a timer app on my phone as well, I actually prefer the other timer because I can wear it on my shorts, I don’t have to worry about my phone not being charged, it’s easy to throw in a suitcase when traveling, etc.

Can I lose weight using this system?

People have lost weight using this system! In fact, I know a pastor who lost 25 pounds. However, as I trust you already know, your diet plays a much larger role in weight loss than exercise, though both are important. The primary aim of this program is to get and keep your body in shape. Weight loss, if desired, is a secondary benefit and will almost assuredly require you to address your eating habits as well. I’m just being honest.

What are others saying about 9Minutes2Fit?

 “My experience was that the workout was challenging enough to get the heart pumping and the sweat flowing, a good place to start in the morning. I like that it is customizable to difficulty level and exercises chosen. My wife and I have done it together. This is a great work-out for busy people.” –Fisk, seminary intern

“We met at the internship retreat and I thoroughly enjoyed the workout. I was super excited to see this opportunity and want to take advantage of it! It's been a great start to the program … The exercises have been really good and I've felt that I understand them, plus the videos are a great bonus with good tips on how to make the exercises more or less demanding!
–Dan, seminary intern

“Kent, I think this work is excellent. Thank you for persistently inviting folks to focus on the gift of God’s health.” –Marc, member of Bishop’s staff

Kent, Love the program. Very do-able. I look forward to seeing results as I’m taking a new call…in June and would love to move less of me. I really like getting your daily emails every day.  This program is working well for me. –Marie Duquette, pastor

Your program works well for us when I am available and I get a kick out of doing them with [my husband] Kevin.  He watches your videos and then instructs me later, and we exercise together. Thanks for helping us get in shape!  --Debbie and Kevin, spouse and pastor

Kent, Yes we are [enjoying the workouts]. It’s a good program and causing me to use muscles I haven't used for a long time. My legs were pretty sore for a few days but it’s worth it. I'm looking forward to going through the whole 40 days.  --Tom Piper, pastor’s spouse

I spoke at the retreat about the benefits of your program.. .and I made a STRONG POINT that you are teaching me... and that you have a great understanding of the body and how to get a full body workout. I appreciate TREMENDOUSLY that you're sharing your knowledge!  I also appreciate your generosity with understanding others' time, skill level, and fitness level. Based on how you're teaching, I was able to not exercise on Thursday (with extra responsibilities for the retreat). So I can transfer Thursday and Friday's workouts to other days!

Thanks again! Blessings on your weekend!
Ralph, pastor

Love the workouts. Thanks, these are really helpful and doable.  I especially like the options for levels of fitness.  The wall push-ups are where I am these days.  –Paula Connor, pastor

Got all three workouts in this week (I do appreciate the extra day on Saturday, as that is when I did the Friday work out - nice to have a 'catch-up' day!)Thanks, Kent, I look forward to next week.
Kathy Shuck, pastor

I absolutely love this program!  The best part is the time involved to get in a great workout - so do-able! Thanks so much. –Diana Schneider, church member

The simplicity of the program has gotten me back to and looking forward to daily exercise! THANK YOU!  --Frank Hanrahan

I look forward to each day's workout. Good variety of exercises. Thanks for doing this.
--Rich, seminarian
