48 Fitness Quotes for Maximum Motivation

fitness quotesThe number secret to getting the body that you want is consistency. It doesn’t matter how great your workout regimen or your diet is, if you don’t actually stick to it, you won’t get the results you’re after. So why do so many people fail at achieving their fitness goals? It really comes down to a lack of motivation.

So here are 48 motivational fitness quotes that will help keep your desire for that dream body strong. Getting fit can often be boring. Eating that piece of chicken when you could be eating a piece of cake isn’t always easy. Dragging yourself to the gym on a cold, rainy day when you could be sleeping in isn’t glamorous. There aren’t any workout songs constantly playing as you’re putting in all that work like it does in a training montage in a movie.

If you want to get the body you’ve always dreamed of, you need to put in the long, tedious work for at least a year. Have this long term mentality and that alone will put you at an advantage compared to most people who continue looking for quick results with as little work as possible.
