33 Timeless Fitness Quotes for Lasting Motivation

No human being on this planet is motivated 100% of the time. Whether you like it or not, there will always be times when you go through low times, feeling dull or unmotivated. It’s a natural part of life and it happens to everyone.

I’m sure you can relate to this as well. If by any chance you have never experienced a lack of motivation in your life, please tell the world how you do it, you’ll do humanity a huge favor 🙂

This is especially true in fitness since the majority of the people nowadays find it very difficult to be consistent in exercising or working out, due to lapses in motivation. Just imagine if people were motivated all the time; being fit wouldn’t be a big deal at all.

Now, we may not be able to easily avoid times when we feel unmotivated, but we can certainly come back stronger and strive to be regularly motivated again.

Resilience is key.
