Most Inspiring Motivational Fitness Quotes

The Most Inspiraring Fitness Quotes


Simple phrases can serve as powerful tools for the individual to get on with the day’s tasks.

Having some great ones on hand can channel one’s positive thoughts and keep him or her as

highly motivated as possible. Keeping a few in a place where you can see them and definitely

motivate you prior to going in for your daily training session. Below are ten of my personal

favourite quotes. Hopefully, they might be of help to you!

Fitness Quote #1

‘Anyone who says that full squats are ‘bad for the knees’ has, with that statement,

demonstrated conclusively that they are not entitled to an opinion about the matter. People

who know nothing about a topic, especially a very technical one that requires specific training,

knowledge, and experience, are not due an opinion about that topic and are better served by

being quiet when it is asked about or discussed. For example, when brain surgery, or string

theory, of the NFL draft, or women’s dress size, or white wine is being discussed, I remain quiet,

odd though that may seem. But seldom is this the case when orthopaedic surgeons, athletic

trainers, physical therapists, or nurses are asked about full squats.’

- Mark Rippetoe

Fitness Quote #2

‘You’re gonna have to go through hell, worse than any nightmare you’ve ever dreamed. But

when it’s over, I know you’ll be the one standing. You know what you have to do. Do it!’

- Duke (Tony Burton), Rocky IV

Fitness Quote #3

‘To feel strong, to walk amongst humans with a tremendous feeling of confidence and

superiority is not at all wrong. The sense of superiority in bodily strength is borne out by the long

history of mankind paying homage in folklore, song and poetry to strong men.’

- Fred Hatlfied

Fitness Quote #4

‘Don’t have $100.00 shoes and a 10 cent squat.’

- Louie Simmons

Fitness Quote #5

‘No citizen has a right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. What a disgrace it is

for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.’

- Socrates

Fitness Quote #6

‘Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.’

- Jim Rohn

Fitness Quote #7

‘Strong people are harder to kill than weak people and are more useful in general.’

- Mark Rippetoe

Fitness Quote #8

‘The pain you feel today is the strength you’ll feel tomorrow.’

- Unknown

Fitness Quote #9

‘Have you ever noticed an athlete in the weight room who is built like Tarzan, yet lifts weights

better suited for Jane? Yet, there are other athletes who are every bit as strong and functional

as they look.

- Joe DeFranco

Fitness Quote #10

‘Passion trumps everything.’

- Dave Tate
