The Best Motivational Quotes

Allison December 31, 2012 8

“You can throw in the towel, or you can use it to wipe the sweat off your face.” So true!

I’m a sucker for motivational quotes. All I have to do is read a few inspiring words and I’m raring to go to the gym… or go for a run… or get out on the sand volleyball court. They instantly erase any excuses and get me fired up!

And I’m not the only one: Olympians use them to push through the pain, athletes use them to stay on their game and gym rats use them to push through another pushup.

So, for the last day of 2012, I wanted to share with you a few of my favorites. They will get your moving… and keep you moving.

    The quote “Exercise to be fit, not to be skinny” should be the motivation of people who are working out. A lot of people want to lose weight but some of them do it for the sake of fitting in to society’s concept of beauty, not for the improvement of their health.

    I love these! I am a Beachbody Coach and eating clean is such a huge part of my life now. I like them all but the quote about eating clean is great!
