Top 20 Motivational Workout Quotes Of All Time & 7 Shallow Reasons To Workout
1. To Get Big
Some of us were not born big and strong. A large number of men and women are naturally skinny. And for guys being skinny can be stressful because skinny guys are often teased and get called puny or wimpy. As for me I was a really skinny kid back in high school, I got bullied and teased a lot because I was lean. A number of teenagers join the gym to get huge and muscular, they feel that getting more muscular can get improve their self confidence, as far as my experience goes this is correct to some extent. I started going to the gym while I was senior in high school, by the time I got into college I got strong and muscular, as a result I think it improved my self confidence and no one has called me a wimp or puny again. Getting stronger and muscular is the primary objective for most peope that join a gym.
2.To Show Off Your Body
Going to the beach and showing off your body can be a huge ego-boost. Imagine yourself in a bikini/swim trunks, walking down the beach with that perfect body that you always wanted, all those hard hours at the gym will be worth it, when you get the attention of some strangers at the beach. It can boost yourself confidence and motivate you to work even harder at the gym.
3.To Prove Everyone Wrong
There will always be people around you who discourage you when you are about to start something new, when I joined the gym back when I was in high school a lot of my friends made fun of me and expected me to quit within a few days of joining the gym, but I didn't quit. Today, 10 years after high school, it feels pretty good to be fit while a number of my high school friends are overweight. Determination and determination alone can get you whatever you want, so prove everyone wrong, Don't quit.
Whenever you are tempted to quit, remember the words of Muhammad Ali -
"I hated every minute of training, but I said, 'Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion."
4.To Get Noticed
A good looking fit man or a woman with the perfect figure will always get more attention than an average person; this may be hard to accept, but it is the truth. People with the perfect body will always get more attention from the opposite sex whether you are in a party, a nightclub or college. This is another shallow reason to work out. If you think about it, everyone who goes to the gym wants to have a perfect body. There is no denying this fact; someone who works out regularly will obviously want people to notice their body.
5.To Ridicule The Small Guy
Fitness freaks often like to mock or ridicule guys who don't work out. Especially Buff guys, they always tend to make fun of the little guy because he doesn't put an effort into body building, I've seen this a number of times, some of my friends at the gym spend a lot of their time making fun of guys who can’t do 10 push-ups.
Personally I think a guy who works out regularly subconsciously thinks he is somehow better than an average person (This is why some bodybuilders are real jerks). I was a really skinny kid once and people used to mock me and push me around all the time, so I know how it feels to be on the other side of the rope. Just because someone spends 10 hours a week in the gym doesn't make him better than everybody else does it?
6.To Be In Love With Yourself
Once you start working out, for some people it becomes a lifestyle. After a couple of months of working out you may start noticing changes in your body and start to be in love with your body. You start to flex you muscles in front of the mirror every now and then, you feel more comfortable wearing tight clothes that shows your figure.
Everybody starts going to the gym because they want to look more attractive and stay healthy, by doing so they want to attract the hottest guy or girl, this is no secret everybody wants that. Impressing the opposite sex is the number 1 reason most why most people start working out.
