Top 45 Fitness Motivational Quotes

By Byfitnessgym92
I am addicted to motivational words and phrases. I have them on my laptop screen saver and on my iPhone. I wear a necklace that says “Live Life Well”. I have bracelets with coins saying “Believe, Sweat, and Inspire”. I get energy from words. I glance at them, read them, repeat them and they channel my thoughts in a positive way. It’s a great way to keep you motivated with your fitness program. It can be as simple as putting the word or phrase on a post-it note on your computer or bathroom mirror – somewhere you will see it every day.
Here are 25 of my favorite motivational quotes from some famous and not-so-famous folks. I hope you find inspiration in them like I have!
