Starting is the hardest part. Let’s face it, when it comes to fitness we all can use some good motivation. Simply put: working out is hard – being fat and unhealthy is hard – choose your hard. Here are 7 motivational quotes to help you clear those tough workout hurdles, rise above your excuses and accomplish your fitness goals.
If only you burned calories by complaining – right?!? Um, no. Excuses don’t burn calories, exercise does – so grab your earhoox, pump your favorite playlist and get the job done!
Cheaters never win and winners never cheat. You need to be honest with yourself about how much work you’re really putting in. You can’t expect the best results if you know your not putting forth your best effort.
Are you your worst enemy? Your thoughts have POWER. Be careful who you let in your inner circle and don’t let anyone (including yourself) kill your vibe.
Fitness is not a fad – it’s a lifestyle. That’s right – it’s a lifelong habit that you build over time, but building that habit can be especially hard. Working out will make you sweaty, sore, and tired – and pretty soon you will love every minute of it.
Remember this the next time you’re having one of those “blah” days.
Some people color coordinate their workout gear. Red can signify intense workout days and blues/greens might signify aerobic days. The point: always dress for the occasion.
Start small. Promise that you’ll work out for just five minutes, and then five minutes more, and keep challenging yourself until you’re really, truly done. Remember, the only bad workout is the one that didn’t happen.
