For most people, the biggest obstacle when it comes to getting fit is motivation. When you’re pumped up and excited about your workouts and new diet plan, it’s easy to follow through but when that excitement dies down for whatever reason, just getting out of bed might be challenge. To help you get your mentality back in the right place, here are a list of motivational fitness quotes along with images.
“No matter how slow you go, you are still lapping everybody on the couch.” – Unknown
“There are 7 days in a week and someday isn’t one of them.”
“Suck it up now so you don’t have to suck it in later.”
“Don’t wish for a good body, work for it.”
“Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels.”
“Commitment means staying loyal to what you said you were going to do long after the mood you said it in has left you.”
“Do something today that you future self with thank you for.”
“Excuses don’t burn calories.”
“The difference between someone who is in shape, and someone who is not in shape, is the individual who is in shape works out even when they do not want to.”
“The individual who says it is not possible should move out of the way of those doing it.” – Tricia Cunningham
“Get comfortable with being uncomfortable!” – Jillian Michaels
It’s not a once in a while thing or a “until I can fit in that outfit” thing, it’s a lifetime thing.
Outside motivation can only go so far. You can only get yelled at for so long. True motivation comes from within. When you yourself can get you to do what you need to do, nothing can stop you.
Stop giving yourself reasons to feel regret. Don’t wait to get started. If anything, you should’ve started last year. Time to catch up.
It’s about hard work. Being fit isn’t easy, otherwise, we’d all be fit. If you want something, you have to work for it.
You mold your future by the actions you take today. If you want to know how your future will most likely turn out, look at your current actions.
Being lazy one day is fine if you get back on track the next day. Stack up too many lazy days and you’ll fall into a wasteful habit. Being lazy is an easier habit to develop than being active but the latter is much, much more rewarding in the long run.
Not every workout is going to be a good one. Some will leave you feeling tired or sore. Some will make you wonder why you’re working so hard. It’s fine to feel that way, we all go through it. What’s worse are the workouts we don’t do because it’s ridiculously easy for a few missed workouts to turn into a few months or a few years. If you don’t ever want to get to that point, don’t let the cycle begin in the first place.
