15 Motivational Fitness Quotes That Will Inspire You

No matter at what level anyone partakes in exercise and fitness programs, there has to be motivation within that individual to do so. For some, this comes easily; for others, they seem to be on a roller coaster, whereby some days, they cannot wait to get out of bed and go jogging first thing in the morning, and other days, they just want to pull the duvet over their head and go back to sleep. Let us be honest; we have all been there at least once.

It is certain everyone who does exercise has moments when their ‘get up and go’ has got up and gone! In those moments, there are several ways in which you can seek the motivation that you need, and one of the best is to recall a motivational quote. These are words that have been written or spoken, more often than not, by famous people that provide some inspiration and motivation to carry on.

We found loads but have narrowed them down to 15 of the very best. For all quotes, we have credited the person to whom the original words belong. Some are sportspeople, others are celebrities, and you might even see one from a former US president.
