We all know exercising is one of those things we should do in life in order to stay healthy. But working out is difficult sometimes, physically and emotionally, and we need that extra motivation to keep us going.
Not only is continuing the workout hard but just starting is a whole challenge in itself. Here is a list of quotes that will help motivate all aspects of your workout, from start to finish. Because we all need a little motivation.
“You don’t get the ass you want by sitting on it.”
We’ve all been at a place where getting off our butts is the hardest thing. And nothing is better than looking back and smiling because you made the right choice.
“Sweat is just fat crying.”
This is a funny way to keep yourself going so hard that you’ll notice the sweat dripping, but not mind it at all. And it will help you forget about the pain for a quick minute.
“Sore today, strong tomorrow.”
For the people with killer workouts that produce killer results. Being sore is a good thing! Even if it doesn’t feel like it at first.
“Making excuses burns zero calories.”
There’s no point in making excuses. It’s just to prevent you from doing what you know you need to do. And if you aren’t doing what you need to do, who will do it?
“Fit is not a destination, it is a way of life.”
We have to sometimes remind ourselves that we don’t just reach a goal and stop trying to be healthy.
“Wake up, work out, kick ass, repeat.”
Simple, and a great mantra.
“Worked my triceps too hard, now I can’t wash my hair.”
This is a great problem to have. Signs of an effective workout! And it’s kind of funny.
“One of the greatest moments in life is realizing that two weeks ago, your body couldn’t do what it just did.”
Remind yourself of the progress you make each day or week and keep going!
“Better to be sore than sorry.”
You can apologize to your body after your last set of pushups.
“Running is nothing more than a series of arguments between the part of your brain that wants to stop and the part that wants to keep going.”
I used to always feel this way about running and didn’t think anyone else felt that way, but that was not the case.
“It’s pretty simple. You either do it or you don’t.”
This goes back to making excuses – whether it’s saying it out loud or in your own head. Just do it. If it doesn’t turn out the way you want it to, oh well. On the other hand, if it does, then hell yeah!
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
Perspective is such an important part of life. We can choose to look at things negatively, or positively. And when we look at things positively, we can influence the outcome.
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
Put your mind to it, give it all you got, and you might be surprised by what you can achieve.
“Work out. Eat well. Be patient. Your body will reward you..”
This sounds like the perfect equation to life.
“When nothing goes right, go lift.”
Don’t go left. Go lift.
“The difference between your body this week and next week is what you do for the next seven days to achieve your goals.”
No days off! You want to make sure you take advantage of the days you have to reach your goals. Because when you aren’t working, there’s someone else out there working to beat you.
“The hardest lift of all is lifting your butt off the couch.”
This. Is. So. True. But recognizing that can help push you mentally to not let the difficulty stop you.
