18 Fitness Quotes To Keep You Motivated And Inspired


We all need a little motivation each day to inspire us to be our best and to breakthrough barriers that have been holding us back.

Inspirational quote: between who you were yesterday and who you will be tomorrow depends on what you will do today
Inspirational quote: do something positive today that your future self will thank you for

1. Taking care of your self physically and mentally each day will make you a better you in your future. If you started 6 months ago just think of how good you would look and feel today! So start today to a better you!

Inspirational quote: healthy on the outside starts from the inside first
Inspirational quote: what you eat in private you wear in public

2. So very true. We are what we eat.

So let’s eat healthy to give our bodies the nutrition it needs to be stronger, healthier and to heal.

Inspirational quote: when you feel like quitting remember why you started
Inspirational quote: will it be easy? nope. Will it be worth it? absolutely

3. We all need to remind ourselves why we started. Too often we start all excited about our program then life gets busy and we lose the reason why we started and feel like quitting.

Post on your bathroom mirror your goals and why you are doing it. A daily reminder to re-motivate yourself and know that all your hard work will pay off!

Inspirational quote: are you moving poorly because you are in pain? Or are you in pain because you are moving poorly?
Inspirational quote: to do list: think positively, exercise daily, eat healthy, work smart, worry less, smile often, dance, more, love much, feel gratitude, care deeply, be happy

4. Lack of movement or exercise can cause aches and pains within our bodies.

Some muscles become weak and underused while others become tight and overused creating an imbalance that causes pain, stiffness and restriction in our mobility.

A balanced workout program including strength, cardio and flexibility makes for better body movement.

If you are not sure of what to do or what muscles need the attention seek out the expertise of a Personal Trainer or Physiothearapist.

Inspirational quote: look for something positive in each day even if some days you have to look a little harder

STOP trying to look like the magazine covers you see! Focus on YOUR PERSONAL BEST! Being the best you can be!

Doing something is better then doing nothing!

Inpirational quote: to keep going make a 45 minute long playlist and don't stop until it does


 I like this quote because it is something I find really works for me. I put my music on and just keep moving from one exercise, or yoga pose, or stretch…. or dance move…  to the other until my playlist is done

Find yourself some good motivational music that is energetic and makes you want to move.

I love motivational quotes especially on days where I find it a struggle to get myself moving

 I post them on my mirror and fridge. I find this really helps me on a daily basis.
