The Exercise and Nutrition Survival Guide for Full-Time Missionaries

Hello! Thanks for checking out my exercise and nutrition survival guide for LDS missionaries! My name is Molly and I am an NASM Certified Personal Trainer and a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. I created this guide for multiple reasons. One, I have 3 teenage boys and 1 pre-teen daughter and I wanted to have a resource for them to help them be spiritually and physically fit while serving their missions. Also, as a member of the Oregon Eugene Mission field, I have had the opportunity to help 100’s of missionaries who have struggled with exercise, nutrition and feeling well while serving their missions. And whereas exercise and nutrition shouldn’t be their first focus-it is still an essential piece to having the health, energy and spiritual capacity to truly make those years of service the best two years of their life! That is what I had in mind as I created this guide. It is a simple approach to health and wellness while serving a mission so that they can feel great and be able to more fully tap into their spiritual capacity. 

I have felt called to create this guide for years! Originally, I largely got this idea from the sister missionaries in our area.  Time after time they would come to me asking for help with exercise and nutrition.  They wanted to feel good and stay fit while serving their missions and they wanted to learn simple tools and tricks to eat healthy as far as it was in their control. I would work out with them several mornings a week and even created a simple guide for them to use in their apartments when we couldn’t workout together.  They loved it and felt that taking those 20-30 minutes in the morning to move their bodies really helped them to be better missionaries physically, spiritually and mentally. As the news of my little “guide” started spreading to other elders and sisters, I was getting a constant request for it.  Thus the idea for this guide was born! So this is my baby and labor of love that I want to make available to missionaries everywhere and that I hope my own children will implement as well when they go on their missions!

This manual will include 4 months of simple workouts that missionaries can do in their apartments.  The only equipment required is a resistance band and their own body weight.  The workouts will be broken down into four 30 day calendars and will include upper body lower body, full body resistance and HIIT workouts for maximum benefit in the shortest amount of time.  It also includes 12 weeks  of simple, nutrient dense and cost effective meal plans with tips and tricks to make meal planning and nutrition easy while serving!  This manual will be an AMAZING resource that missionaries can integrate into their life that will be affordable, easy and quick.  

Throughout the manual I will also be including short spiritual thoughts out of the scriptures or conference talks that go along with nourishing the body, mind and spirit.  

And BONUS! To make it even easier and accessible to any sister or elder regardless of fitness level, I have also included simple pictures of each move and modification and intensification options. This manual can truly be utilized by ANY Latter Day Saint missionary.
