Chris Forte’s 7 Spiritual Fitness Steps
What do you lean on when you-know-what hits the life fan?
Chris Forte, spiritual teacher, dad, yogi and author of The Humble Warrior, had to lean hard on his spiritual practice when his life started coming apart at the seams a few years ago with the end of his 17 year marriage and losing his 3rd business in 8 years. Not new to adversity or the messiness of this human experience — he has in fact shared some of that journey previously in Best Self Magazine. But lucky are we that he has stayed the course through it all — because like a phoenix rising from the ashes, along with it has come purpose, perspective, passion and a deep desire to serve others.
We decided to do something a little different in this issue. Instead of a workout video focusing solely on the physical self, Chris has created a video to describe the foundation of his transformation: 7 Spiritual Fitness Steps. Spiritual fitness permeates all aspects of your being and connects all dots — the ultimate workout body, mind and soul.

Your life is a journey. Your pain and suffering are not a random coincidence; they will lead you to your higher purpose. Listen to your heart, because the resources for you to fulfill your purpose are inside of you. Yes, your treasure lies within you…and God is always with you.
