"Unfit For Service"

I don't remember much else about the letter I received from the Secratary of the Air Force. That short phrase was a declaration that exploded my life and had a deep negative impact on much of my adult timeline.

I attended the US Air Force Academy from 1990-1994, and I attended the USAFA Preparatory School before that. instead of graduation, my journey ended with my resignation pending a decision from the Secretary of the Air Force.

The same time my classmates were marching to graduation, I was driving out of the North gate, headed to Florida - a place I hadn't been since my stepfather died; a place I hadn't lived in over eight years.

The emotional pain I felt from those three words is what I remember the most. i don't want that pain for anyone.

Minister Fitness is birthed from that pain. 

From Unfit to FIT

I was declared "unfit for service" once and the pain from that experience is what I used to think about how could I help people avoida similar declaration. 

Titus 1:16
New International Version (NIV)

They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.


One day, I stumbled upon and read Dave Stewart's article,  "How to Select F.I.T. Leaders", and I was immediately inspired to create Minister Fitness, using the same "F.I.T." acronym.
