Motivational quotes can be a great tool to help get into a positive frame of mind, whether it be for work, health and fitness, or just daily life. For most people, starting a healthy diet and exercise regime is motivating in itself as it provides a new challenge. However, a little further down the line is when a regime can plateau. But reading a small quote can provide that little extra drive you may need to carry on. Today one of our Assessors (and resident fitness fanatic) provides a series of quotes that he has utilised throughout his fitness journey, and hopefully, they will resonate with you too!

3 Motivational Quotes for Fitness and Life

“If you want something you’ve never had, you must be willing to do something you’ve never done.”

-Thomas Jefferson, Third President of the USA

Any goal or ambition has to be earned. You have to be willing to step outside of your comfort zone to achieve it. This could be a weight loss goal or a fitness/sporting goal. For our Assessor, it was entering and taking part in the Great North Run three years ago having previously thought that this would be unachievable.

“Champions are made when nobody is watching.”

-Hull FC Gymnasium Wall Art, Pickering Road, Hull (Originally Michael Jordan)

This quote was spotted on the way into Hull FC Gymnasium and it’s really impactful. This is an excellent quote if you are training for a specific sport, sporting event, or aiming to achieve a certain fitness level. It will help to remind you that you are the driving force behind your success. This can also translate to everyday life and career goals.

“Life’s not about how hard you can hit, it’s how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”

-Sylvester Stallone playing Rocky

We have saved the best until last, from an all-time classic film! This quote is incredibly powerful and can relate to anything in life. There are always going to be bumps in the road whatever you set out to achieve, but you have to remain positive and stay focused on your end goal.

We hope that you’ve found these quotes motivational…As for our resident fitness fanatic, he’s gone out for a run!
