Hi, I'm La Vita Weaver!
La Vita Weaver is an inspirational speaker, trainer, and author. As a mother of three, she knows firsthand how struggling with extra weight affects every area of one’s life. At her heaviest, her petite frame skyrocketed to an unhealthy 200-plus pounds. She became a certified personal trainer and fitness counselor to help others achieve healthy living goals and her inspirational story of losing weight and overcoming binging and depression was shared in her faith-based health and fitness book, “Fit For God”.
Combining faith and fitness, La Vita produced “Hallelujah! Aerobics for Body and Spirit,” the first Christian exercise program of its kind, and the award-winning local cable health and fitness show, “Eternally Fit.” Her success story aired on well-known television programs and appeared in popular publications, including Essence, Heart & Soul, Victorious Christian Women Magazine, and others. Serving as cohost on Trinity Broadcasting Network’s (TBN’s) popular fitness show, “TotaLee Fit,” she had the privilege of sharing healthy living tips internationally with eight-time Mr. Olympia winner, Lee Haney.
La Vita's inspirational voice and expertise made her a leader of hundreds of successful classes and workshops. Today, she celebrates over 30 years of strengthening lives by promoting total wellness. Her interdisciplinary expertise fuels her passion to inspire the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—and her energy and genuine joy uplift the most downtrodden souls. As an ordained minister and health expert, she served in her local church for over 25 years empowering women of all walks of life to live victoriously in Christ.
La Vita honors God with her unique gift of creativity in her teachings, books, videos, and workout programs. More recently, she opens her heart at women’s conferences with her latest topics “Real Beauty From the Inside Out” and “Wellness At the Well”. Based on her latest book, “Confessions of a Minister’s Passion: Love, Heartbreak & Lessons for a Breakthrough, women of all ages and walks of life are inspired. She shares her vulnerability as a woman to help others heal and receive an incredible breakthrough. For every woman has a story for God’s glory!
In addition, La Vita coined the phrase, “own your V.I.P.” (Value, Identity, and Purpose). She strongly believes it is critical to know that we are valuable, have a unique identity, and have a special purpose in God. Having our value, identity, and purpose placed in God is the foundation necessary to have a healthy view of ourselves and others to aspire to higher heights, be bold with faith in God and be courageous to achieve goals and dreams never imagined.
Besides a deep dedication to helping others win at life with faith, love, and fitness, La Vita’s greatest treasure is spending time with family and friends, especially her three daughters and nine grandchildren.
