About Us

Team Recharge was created to help you learn to eat and move intuitively, honor God with your body and put faith first in your health and fitness to allow your body to function in the way it was originally designed.

Making the commitment to improve your health and fitness is fairly simple.  The struggle comes with staying committed.  Can you relate?  I start off super excited and eager for big results; but am quickly reminded of the hard work, time, and dedication it takes to accomplish the changes I am after – struggling to keep the momentum. 

Romans 12:2 encourages us not to conform to the patterns of this world but to be transformed by renewing our minds.  So, what if we give up control and surrender our health to God?

Putting our faith first, when setting nutrition and fitness goals, will require us to surrender and give up control.  This is like repentance wouldn’t you say?  To turn from sin and go a new way; not resorting back to previous sinful patterns. 

Our “perfect plan” will always be interrupted by social gatherings, family illnesses, vacations and birthdays; but our health does not have to suffer because of it and we do not have to put our goals on hold because of them either.  When we look to the Lord in times of adversity we will discover he is the Way to finding joy and freedom in our choices.  We need the strength from our creator to guide our journey.  We can’t do it alone. 

Team Recharge has a variety of programs offering assistance in nutrition and exercise that help you put your faith first and bring out your original design. We would love the opportunity to walk with you on your journey to greater health and wellness; to support you, encourage you and pray for you.

If you do not go astray, you cannot be led astray.

Why Cardiovascular Fitness Matters for Your Health 

Health and fitness often start with regular exercise, which may include elements such as strength exercises, flexibility routines, and cardiovascular health boosts. While all three types are essential for your overall health, cardiovascular fitness is perhaps the most critical. Without a healthy heart that gets regular exercise, you may experience a broad array of health issues that are problematic and hard to fix.

As a result, you need to do what you can to improve the strength and fitness of your heart. There are simply too many benefits that you just can’t ignore. The following fitness benefits are all present if you take care of your heart and are smart about its overall health. In this way, you can overcome any possible complications and become as healthy as possible for years to come. 

Protects Your Heart 

The importance of cardiovascular health and fitness starts with one of your most essential glands: your heart. Regular exercise and cardiovascular fitness will enhance the strength of your heart and ensure that it doesn’t suffer from any problems. For example, exercise will boost the muscles, decrease its beat pace, and even lower the number of heartbeats you experience during a minute or an hour. 

Just as importantly, improved heart health will protect you against the dangers of heart attacks by breaking apart dangerous cholesterol and other elements in your body. Make sure that you schedule in at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise every day to ensure that you are strong and healthy. And also visit your heart doctor regularly to avoid any other complications and problems. 

In fact, you may even find that regular cardiovascular routines help to reverse many of the negative symptoms of heart problems. For example, you may find that chest pains and other recurring problems disappear and help you live a healthier and happier life long after you quit your exercise.

Enhances Lung Capacity 

Tied to your cardiovascular health and fitness is the strength of your lungs. If your cardiovascular health is weak, you’re going to struggle to breathe properly and may experience other health issues. For example, you may be short of breath when you relax, struggle to walk up stairs or for extended periods, or may even become lightheaded or faint when you exert yourself too much while working out. 

As a result, you need to exercise regularly to enhance your lung capacity and keep your body prepared for various types of exercise routines. Regular exercise – even something as simple as a walk – will work your lungs and enhance your overall capacity. And, just as importantly, more intensive routines – such as safe jogs or non-impact routines – can ensure that your lungs are as healthy as possible.

This benefit may have long-lasting effects that boost your overall quality of life for years to come. For instance, imagine never suffering from a loss of breath when you’re shopping or out in the woods hunting. These benefits will expand to include other elements of your life as well, including your romantic and sex life. 

Boosts Performance Strength 

If you’re already in reasonably good shape and like to compete in various types of events, your cardiovascular health is even more critical. You’ll need a healthy heart to compete in just about any occasion, including competitive sports like soccer and basketball and also in individual sports, such as runs, jogs, and more. These benefits work to improve your overall fitness in a myriad of ways. 

For teens in high school that want to get an excellent scholarship to the college of their choice, cardiovascular exercises are even more critical for their health and fitness. Being in peak performance increases their chances of getting picked for a college team, getting a full-ride scholarship, and even ending up on a professional team.

Such experiences may change their life for the better. Even more importantly, you can utilize cardiovascular health exercises as a professional to stand out in your field, increase your ability to compete, and become a highly sought member of a team. If you don’t make it to a truly professional team at first, you can use enhanced cardiovascular health to stand out in minor leagues. 

May Increase Lifespan 

All of these benefits are critical to many elements of your overall health, including the most important of all: your lifespan. People who regularly work out and stay in great shape will last longer, primarily if they focus on their cardiovascular health and fitness. This benefit is one that you simply can’t ignore because you’re not going to get any younger as time passes. 

Studies have shown that adults who increase their cardiovascular health boost not only their quality of life but also their lifespan. For example, adults in their 60s and 70s may have improved metabolic rates, increased weight control, and a more youthful appearance. You simply cannot ignore the many benefits of cardiovascular exercise as you age and start to feel your body betray you. 

Get Into Great Shape 

The importance of high-quality cardiovascular health means that you cannot ignore the benefits of this type of exercise for very long. While it is true that your body will survive without it for a period, you may experience a decline in your quality of life. Even worse, you may find that you can’t perform the activities that you love and that your life feels less enjoyable than ever. 

So if you’re concerned about your health and fitness and want to improve your overall strength and stability, you need to start working on your cardiovascular health as soon as possible. Pick routines that you know you can handle and work your way up to more demanding exercises. As you increase in your fitness and become more confident, you’ll be better at working out and healthier than ever.

  • I joined not knowing what to expect… my time with Recharge has taught me to ALWAYS put God first. I also learned weight loss is not always about the pounds but the weight of your heart and mind. This journey showed me what it means to seek God first in all things. I lost a few pounds but I gained more insight about myself and that is huge for me. I highly recommend this program to anyone seeking a better life.

  • In 8 weeks I experienced, for me, an epiphany. I learned I needed more than just a great workout to help my health journey. Jill introduced me to her program and incorporated a healthy way of eating, moving, and praying. I’ve learned how to include God in my everyday. Jill’s kindness and knowledge has taken me to a new path on my wellness journey. I have incorporated new habits into my daily routine that help me be the best me i’ve ever been. thank you, Jill, you will always be cherished.

  • This program has helped give me a renewed peace and perspective on fitness and nutrition. I was one who struggled with an “all or nothing” approach, and through this program I was able to learn that I was lacking God in that area of my life. The program taught me that God does want me to be healthy and whole. Putting God first didn’t mean abandoning my health and fitness. I have made some great new friends, I am stronger, have more energy and endurance, and I have a healthier relationship with both food and my workouts. I highly recommend this!
