Motivation is the Key to Will Power

So for a little wisdom along the way, check out these motivational quotes by successful personal trainers…
Stick to Your Fitness Goals with these 5 Motivational Quotes
“You gotta burn to earn.”
Bron Volney, certified trainer
Although I don’t advocate serious aches and pains as being a necessary part of a successful workout, you should be working hard enough that you’re feeling a bit of a burn during your workout. Taking a step back, the message can be applied to any goal – you’ve got to work hard to see results.
“Today is another opportunity to be better than we were yesterday.”
Errick McAdams, personal trainer
A favorite of mine, this quote’s a great reminder that every day is a new beginning – and a new chance to start moving in the right direction. It’s important to adopt this perspective with any fitness goal, because it’s easy to caught up in negative thoughts. If you find yourself getting negative and discouraged, tell yourself you’re going to start the next day in a better mindset.
“Most obstacles melt away when we make up our minds to walk through them.”
Nicole Glor, certified trainer
This sounds like the perfect quote for kicking off a fitness goal, but in reality it’s appropriate for any stage of the game. We all come up against obstacles, whether they’re real or just imagined. But all obstacles are overcome in our minds – and by a simple decision to see things through.
“Regroup, replan, refocus, and keep moving forward.”
Robert Reames, personal trainer
Goals should always be made as flexible as possible, and any time you’re feeling frustrated, you should always take a moment to regroup and refocus. If that also means coming up with a new plan of action, then so be it. The idea is to always be moving forward. As long as you’re doing that, you’ll find success of some kind.
“Be stronger than your excuses.”
Amanda Butler, personal trainer
This last one is a new favorite of mine, and a quote that I just recently came across. We all have a tendency to make excuses when we’re feeling down or discouraged about a goal. Sometimes it feels easier to just ignore a challenge than really face it. This quote is a good reminder that sometimes your mindset needs to be tougher than your excuses.
