Getting to the gym can be a challenge, especially if the weather is as nice as it is today! Here’s some motivational quotes to help you get going, we’d love to hear from you if you have any favourites we haven’t mentioned.

“It is not the critic who counts, not the one who points out how the strong man stumbled or how the doer of deeds might have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred with sweat and dust and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who, if he wins, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

“The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you’re a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.”

“The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent.”

“It’s hard to be humble when you are as great as I am.”
Muhammad Ali

“I hated every minute of training, but I said, don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion.”
Muhammad Ali

“There is nothing we cannot live down, rise above, and overcome.”
Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“Obsessed is just a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated.”

“The harder you work, the luckier you get.”
Gary Player

“Things do not change. We change.”
Henry David Thoreau

“If you think you can or if you think you can’t, you’re right.”
Henry Ford

“If somebody beats me, its not because they outworked me.”
Layne Norton

“A great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.”
Walter Gagehot

“If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.”
William Arthur Ward

“Courage is doing what you’re afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you’re scared.”
Eddie Rickenbacher

Stay inspired,
