Hello, I am very happy you're here right now. You are here for a reason, and you're not reading this by accident. My name is Josh, and I am the sole author of everything you'll find here at Weight Lifting Complete. I started lifting weights to build muscle in the year 2000 so I have many years of experience.
I created this site in 2007 because I absolutely love weight lifting and have been able to keep it going strong since then due to all of the people who visit this site just like you. Thank you for being here. You'll find that this site is unique.
Will you hit the back button and run away? Or will you take a stand and make a change?
I am a follower of Jesus Christ as I hope you are as well. If you are not, I hope you don't hit the close button or back button because Jesus Christ will be the best thing that's ever happened to you. God has given you free will to make your own choices each day.
Just think about all the choices you make for yourself each day. You truly are free to make your own decisions. Each decision you make affects the course of your life. Will you choose the path that's going to make your life better, or will you go down the wrong path to destruction?
Joy, peace, hope, and love OR death, pain, destruction, and hate? Which sounds better to you?
I hope that you choose to follow Jesus as the reward is eternal life in a place that is so great that we can never imagine. But that's not all the rewards you'll receive. You'll be rewarded right now as you live your life here on Earth. Stay with me here at WLC, and you'll see what I mean as you gather all the rewards over the next weeks, months, and years.
God has plans for you, but you've got to let Him work in your life. You can reject Him over and over again, but He's still there waiting for you. He never gives up on you. If I was rejected by someone as many times as I've rejected God, I would have given up a long time ago. Not God. He never gives up on you. He's right here with me after all that I've done to reject Him in my life.
Yes! He's still there waiting for you.
God is there waiting for you right now too: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” — Revelation 3:20
Are you going to let peace, hope, joy, kindness, love, and goodness into your life? Why not? Get rid of all the darkness in your life. Let's go towards the light.
What are you going to find here at Weight Lifting Complete?
Weight Lifting Complete will show you how to begin weight lifting (the right way) to build muscle, burn fat, gain strength and power, and improve your health and appearance.
We are unique here at Weight Lifting Complete because God is the center piece to everything you'll find here. No matter what you believe, God created you and He wants you to be happy and to be the person He made you to be.
Have you ever really put your whole heart into doing something?
We'll show you how to start transforming yourself into His intention for you. All you have to do is follow the plan and give it your absolute best effort: “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.” — Colossians 3:23-24
God is saying to put your “HEART” into it. Don't just give it your best, but do your best by putting your heart into it. Your heart is STRONG.
You're not alone. You have absolutely nothing to fear.
God will be there with you. When He is with you, nothing can stop you. God never says you won't have some troubles and trials along the way.
God does promise that He'll be right there with you: “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” — Isaiah 43:2
God is telling you it's time to take a stand once and for all. No matter what trials and troubles you have, keep going. Don't give up. Don't quit. Now is the time.
Here's how you get started. Everything you need to know is here on this site.
You will find a step-by-step guide right here on this site. I will take you through each and every step.
The program is called the WLC Program, and it's purpose first and foremost is to bring you closer to God so you can build an intimate relationship with Him. From there, you'll build a strong and powerful body that's healthy and ready to fulfill God's purpose and plans for you.

The best part is you'll be fulfilling the plans that God has for you. His plans are much better than anything you could ever plan. You now have a future.
Hey Josh! What if I don't believe in God?
I am vouching for God right now. He is real, and you should believe in Him. Have you ever really given God a chance to reveal to you that He's real? You have to put the effort forth, and He will show you He's real.
It doesn't work to just say, “Hey God, are you there?” When He doesn't answer, you then say: “Well, I guess not.”
All I am asking you to do is go through the WLC Program and give it your absolute best. You don't have anything to lose. If God doesn't show up (He will), then at least you have a brand new body that looks great and feels great too. So give it a shot.
Do you know why you don't believe in God?
Was it something in the past that was very painful for you? I can tell you right now that God gives all free will to make the choices we want. People continue to make bad choices which leads to bad things happening to people.
God is light. Nothing bad has ever came from God. If something bad happened to you, it wasn't God's doing. The evil and darkness in this world would be to blame for that. Don't blame God. And don't blame other people.
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” — Ephesians 6:12
Other people in this world make bad choices, but the rulers of darkness in this world take advantage of that and bad things happen due to the rulers of darkness. The spirit world is real and bad choices open doors for darkness.
If you ever thought God should have not let something happen, you need to ask God for forgiveness. We make choices. People make choices. God has given all of us free will. He always has and He will not change that for any reason.
What if there was no free will? We would be robots!
Would you rather be a robot who does everything God wants? He could have made us like that.
He didn't because everything He has ever done has been perfect, and He made the perfect creation that was corrupted by evil and darkness. The evil and darkness came because of the free will He gave all of His creation. Bad choices led to evil and darkness.
He could have made us robots that obeyed every command. But he gave us all our own mind to make our own decisions. That's a perfect creation. We corrupted His creation.
But don't worry. He sent His Son Jesus to bring us back into perfection. He did this because He had to. He loves us all and would never let us perish. But YES! You have the free will to make the decision to follow Him or not.
You see how it works? You have to make the decision.
But there are so many “religions” that are similar with similar “stories!”
If you were THE ruler of darkness, what would you do to fight against God?
I would create stories that weren't true. I would create confusion. I would create similar stories to the real thing so people would never know the real truth. I would create lies.
Don't let confusion get to you. Why don't you actually give the one true God a chance to work in your life? Give it a shot and believe for once.
Go through the WLC Program and give it everything you have. Try believing. Then you'll find Him. I didn't always believe either. I've given up on Him many times before. But He showed up once I truly believed. He is there. It's your job to believe and to find Him.
“But I've heard God is a fairy tale made up to make us feel better about death.”
God isn't a fairy tale that was made up to make us feel better about death. God is real, and the Bible is THE WORD OF GOD. It's not a book. It's His Word, and it is THE TRUTH.
Don't let ANYONE else tell you what's within the Bible. Don't let someone else interpret the Bible for you. Read it yourself. He'll speak to YOU through His Word.
The Bible is not filled with hate for anyone. God is love. Good things come from God. God loves all of His creation, and if you're a child of God, you love all of His creation as well.
That means no matter what you are, who you are, or what you've done that I love you and God definitely loves you. You are loved here at Weight Lifting Complete. You have a home here.
The TRUTH will set you free!
“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” — John 8:31-32
Start praying and reading God's Word. Continue in His Word. The truth will be revealed to you as you read His Word.
Revelations will come to you from God. You will begin to know and learn things you never knew. This is when it gets fun to follow God. This is when nothing can hurt you because God is on your side guiding you every step of the way.
Bad things may come, but they will be of this world.
When it floods, get a fishing pole and start fishing.
“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.” — Isaiah 43:2
Nothing of this world can hurt you once you trust and believe in God. You receive eternal life. All the hurt you've had now or in the past are things of this world. That stuff doesn't exist in heaven. You will have eternal life in heaven.
So when a fire comes, walk on through it and get yourself a tan because God is right there with you.
Don't be troubled. Jesus said it Himself: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.” — John 14:1
