WEST SPRINGFIELD – One of several speakers at a local meeting of Roman Catholic women yesterday offered some unconventional advice:
Combine daily prayer with bicep curls.
Lynn Ann Covell, an exercise guru from Fox Run, Vt., addressed a gathering for the annual meeting of the Springfield Diocese’s chapter of the National Council of Catholic Women.
As she stalked up and down the carpets of a conference room at the Best Western Sovereign Hotel, Covell extolled the benefits of regular exercise for staying spiritual.
"It’s like there’s a giant magnet pulling us toward calamity, and it doesn’t leave us time to take care of ourselves. We need to keep the temple fit," said Covell, a return speaker at the 10-year old event. [Source]
Gee, I wonder if she saw my post here.
