2012 National Physical Fitness and Sports
PRLog - May 14, 2012 - SAN DIEGO -- May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, which is dedicated to teaching, helping, and empowering people of all backgrounds and abilities to live a healthy lifestyle. Regular physical activity and good nutrition are keys to staying healthy and participation in sports can help strengthen overall health.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), childhood obesity has more than tripled in the past 30 years, more than one-third of U. S. adults are obese, and obesity-related conditions include some of the leading causes of death--heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.*
The Rock Church is inviting both children and adults to take action in regards to their physical and mental health through Rock Sports ministries. From football to salsa dancing, Rock Sports has over 40 different ministries that use sports as a platform for evangelism. The Basketball, Salsa, and Nutrition ministries, among others, create awareness of how fitness helps fulfill one’s God-given purpose.
Basketball Ministry
The Basketball Ministry allows individuals an opportunity to share their common interest in basketball by enjoying fellowship and competition during weekly basketball games, spiritual devotionals, and sports clinics. Through basketball, relationships are formed and strengthened as individuals participate in the sport together.
Says Brent Robertson, leader of the Rock Church Basketball Ministry, “I never thought that you can have a impact on people’s lives through sports before joining this ministry. We have been able to create a bond of brothers by using a platform of Basketball to help spread the word of Jesus.”  The ministry’s co-ed league begins May 16.
WHO: Male and female basketball players
WHAT: Co-ed basketball league games
WHERE: Balboa Park, Municipal Gym 2111 Pan American Plaza, San Diego, CA
WHEN: Wednesday evenings May - July, 2012
Salsa Ministry
The Salsa Dance Ministry provides a welcoming environment where people of all ages and abilities can learn and share the art of salsa. The ministry hosts FREE lessons for couples and singles. “The ministry can share the love and joy of the Christian life through dance,” says Nikk Leonardo, leader of the Rock Church Salsa Ministry.
WHO: Couples and singles
WHAT: Salsa dance lessons
WHERE: Rock Church 2277 Rosecrans St. San Diego, CA 92106
WHEN: Every other Saturday starting May 12 * 6-8PM
Nutrition Ministry
Eating right is one of the biggest contributions to a healthier lifestyle. The Nutrition Ministry helps individuals fuel their bodies with healthy food choices and provides them with educated information, equipping them to honor their body as the Temple of God.  The ministry achieves this by hosting regular seminars on nutrition.  
“Nutrition changed my life 16yrs ago when I was diagnosed with IBS--I no longer have it.  The Nutrition Ministry educates, supports, and prays with people about the way to true health and healing. Too many Christians--I used to be one of them--are in bondage to sickness and pain, and it is making it harder for them to do what God has called them to do.  When we feed our bodies God's way, not our way, we experience ...freedom,” says JoAnna Daniels, leader of the Rock Church Nutrition Ministry.  
WHO: Anyone who wants to learn more about eating healthy
WHAT: Faith-based study designed to examine health from a stewardship perspective
WHERE: Rock Church 2277 Rosecrans St. San Diego, CA 92106
WHEN: Thursdays * 6:30PM or Saturdays * 11AM
