69 Fitness Motivation Quotes To Kick Start Fitness Goals

Looking for the best and inspirational Fitness Motivation quotes?

Many people are afraid of the changes they need to make to improve their fitness. It can be intimidating to break out of your routine and into something new. There is no such thing as a bad day when you’re a gym rat. It’s a common belief that people who work out are happier, healthier, and more confident than those who don’t. But what makes some people stay motivated to keep exercising?

When it comes to staying motivated with fitness goals, two main factors make the difference: Intrinsic motivation and Extrinsic motivation. Intrinsic motivation is something that you do for yourself because it makes you feel good at the moment. You enjoy an activity on its own merits, without expecting anything in return – including praise or rewards from others.

Some days are just more challenging than others, but as long as you stay motivated and push on, it’ll all be worth it in the end.

Here are some quotes that will inspire you to break out of your comfort zone and reach new fitness & health goals.
