Hi I’m Lainey Greer, and my faith in Jesus Christ sets the foundation for all I do. My educational background from a bachelor’s in exercise science to a PhD in systematic theology greatly shapes everything you see here. Plus, my 20 years of nutrition advising and personal training paired with over 10 years working in the local church have given me the experiences that drive what I do today.
My aim is simple. I want to help you understand that your body matters and then equip you with the basics of bodily care. Although Christianity teaches the body’s value in numerous ways, Christians are sometimes anti-body, even though we believe in created bodies, an embodied Savior, and bodily resurrection. Given these truths, we should seek to glorify God in our bodies (1 Corinthians 6:20), which impacts daily, practical realities. Laying biblical groundwork for your body is vital to everything else and motivates all the writing and speaking I do, along with the other services I provide.
My passion has always revolved around the body. While I personally loved working out, as I started personal training, my passion grew for teaching others how to care for their bodies. All the while my years of ministry and seminary led me towards a clearer recognition of valuing the body through my Christian faith. But recognizing God’s gift of your body means more than simply working out.
