Are you struggling to stick to your workout routine? Have you been feeling like "meh" when it comes to exercising? Do you need some extra motivation?
We do too. That's why we compiled a list of 11 motivational fitness quotes to inspire you to get up and work out.
Read them all first and then choose three that resonate with you and write them down or say them out loud. Before you know it you'll be halfway through your workout for the day.
1. STEP INTO YOUR NEW STORY.
“Step out of the history that is holding you back. Step into the new story you are willing to create.” — Oprah Winfrey
Today is a new day. What story do you want to live?
2. BABY STEPS ARE KEY.
“It’s going to be a journey. It’s not a sprint to get in shape.”— Kerry Walsh Jennings
Sometimes the fact that we're not "fit" from the start is what holds us back from working out. Remember that everyone starts somewhere. Where you are today, right now, is the perfect place for your journey to begin or continue. Doing a little bit every day is key.
3. YOU CAN DO IT.
“Just believe in yourself. Even if you don’t pretend that you do and, and some point, you will.” — Venus Williams
This is not the same as saying "fake it till you make it." It's more like committing to believing in a future version of yourself that is already inside you. You are pure potential. What you believe you will become. So start believing in yourself. Right now.
4. KEEP AT IT.
"The road to success is always under construction." — Lily Tomlin
Even if you're like "ugh I haven't worked out in days!" or "I really don't feel like doing anything today" that's okay. The road to achieving your fitness goals is one you build day by day. Including today.
5. FORGIVE YOURSELF.
“It’s one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody.” — Maya Angelou
If you've been hard on yourself about feeling unmotivated, it's okay. Forgive yourself. Sometimes we need breaks...today just so happens to be a great day to get back up and working out.
6. GIVE IT A SHOT.
“I learned a long time ago that there is something worse than missing the goal, and that’s not pulling the trigger.” — Mia Ham
Instead of thinking about how you want to do your workout or worrying about not doing it, just try. Start it. Even if you don't make it all the way through, you'll have taken the first step. Plus, we think you will crush it.
7. YOU HAVE THE POWER.
“The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don’t have any.” — Alice Walker
All the power you need to get up and workout is inside you. You are strong. You are a warrior. You can do this.
8. COMMIT TO WORKING OUT AND YOU WILL WORK OUT.
"Whatever your situation might be, set your mind to whatever you want to do and put a good attitude in it, and I believe you will succeed. You are not going to get anywhere just sitting on your butt and moping around." — Bethany Hamilton
Yeah...what she said. We believe you will succeed too.
9. ERASE THE WORD FAILURE.
"Erase the word failure from you vocabulary. No case is ever truly closed, and no challenge is ever over." — Mary Lou Retton
You cannot fail when it comes to working out. Any effort you make is a perfect effort. Can you make an effort today?
10. CONSISTENCY IS KEY.
“Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence — is the key to unlocking our potential.” — Liane Cardes
Completing your workout every day will change your life in unexpected ways...but you have to keep showing up to find out how.
11. STRUGGLE = STRENGTH.
“You have to remember that the hard days are what make you stronger." — Aly Raisman
As Warriors, this is one of the mottos we live by. If getting up and working out ever feels impossible, really try to push yourself to do it. Those are the times when you'll build the most strength.
We hope this helped inspire you to get up, work out and level up your life today.
You can do this.
If you're ever in need of extra motivation, you can always post in the private Warriors group chat or reach out to your accountability partner.
