“It's a life-changing experience that I want to have every year. I come back, and I feel like I'm revived all over again. ”

The Ultimate Workout is a unique mission project designed for teenagers in high school. Stripped of electronics, parents, and other familiar comforts, volunteers step into the mission field in search of a fresh perspective on the world, relationships, and God. During the project, volunteers live in spartan conditions while building a church or school, coordinating outreach for the local community, and strengthening their personal connection to Jesus Christ. The Ultimate Workout is Maranatha’s most adventurous project–and the most popular!
