FGCU Office of Continuing Education Hosts "Faith & Fitness" Workshop
4/29/2010

FORT MYERS, FL - Florida Gulf Coast University's Continuing Education and Off Campus Programs presents "Faith & Fitness" workshop for healthcare professionals 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 15 or 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday July 27 at The Atrium, 8695 College Parkway, Suite 1181, in Fort Myers. Open to the public.

The course introduces fitness as a true spiritual discipline. The community's health is dependent on the collective support and efforts of its individuals. This course will make clear, in addition to proper nutrition and exercise, that wellness by design requires one to live in harmony with others. Participants will learn that everyone nourishes everyone through the basic variables for health: food, exercise and love.

Tom Hafer, author of "Faith & Fitness" (Augsburg Books, 2007) facilitates the seminar. Hafer is a physical therapist, a licensed athletic trainer; and holds a master's degree in Religion. He serves as both chaplain and physical therapist at Gulf Coast Village and Volunteers of America in Cape Coral. He is a national presenter on the issues of faith and fitness, and is founder of the popular Wellplanet.org website, which teaches people to care for themselves to better care for others.

Cost for the seminar is $20. Contact hours through State of Florida's CE Broker for most healthcare professions available.
