10 Motivational Fitness Quotes To Get You Going


Motivational fitness quotesToo cold, too rainy, not enough time, no energy after work, favourite show on TV, the pub is just around the corner – I hear ya, we’ve all been there. Excuses that stop us from working out are endless  and even the most dedicated and disciplined of us (not me) can succumb to these demotivating, procrastination driven thoughts. So how do you stay motivated to exercise? When I feel lazy to go for a run or do a pilates class, I think about how amazing I will feel once I complete a workout and how guilty I will feel if I don’t do it at all. Think about it, do you ever regret a choice to exercise? The key is to make that choice and to commit to it.

Another way I like to get motivated, to do anything really, is with powerful, motivatioanl quotes and phrases. It’s really dorky, I know, but I am cool with it because I know many others do it too. We all search and save our favourite fitness, career, life and relationships quotes.  I wanted to put together some fun, motivational fitness quotes to help you roll off the couch and get your sweat on. Remember, we’re designed to be physically active and it is our mind that holds us back most of the time. The hardest part is making it to the park, the gym, or the pool and once there, the action happens naturally. So do it now because sometimes ‘later’ become never (I wish that was my quote but it’s not).

Here we go, my top 10 motivational fitness quotes:

What’s your favourite motivating fitness quote? Any other tips to stay motivated to exercise?


  1. Love your site, and those quotes – it’s exactly what I need to get me moving. Thanks Irena!!

    My favorite one in your list is, “Exercise in the morning before your brain figures out what you’re doing”

    Here’s a great one I found on Shape: “Sweat is just fat crying”

  2. I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing issues with your blog.
    It appears like some of the text in your content are running off the
    screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them
    too? This might be a problem with my internet browser
    because I’ve had this happen previously. Kudos

  3. Thanks a lot for this post! I’m a Taekwondo player … and I found myself all alone today having to do my training on my own. Add house chores + PMS and that’s the end of the workout! But amazingly your post pushed through all that and I’m on my feet!
