Samir Becic, a world renowned fitness trainer who leads health classes at Joel Osteen's Lakewood Church, has compiled a "Top 10 Fittest Christian Leaders" list of U.S. pastors who do a good job of balancing their spiritual lives along with health and proper nutrition.

The list was made after his team at Health Fitness Revolution did research on each leader, taking into account how they promote a healthy lifestyle as well as how many people they reach with the Gospel message.
"Some of them had major health problems that they overcame with a healthy lifestyle," Becic told CP. "They can be great ambassadors for the Christian community that might be struggling with their physical health." more >>
