Motivational Posters of the Stars

Updated on November 5, 2013

Some of my favorite motivational posters

If you have a workout space or spot you exercise in you might want to think about getting some good motivational poster featuring some of your favorite stars.

Motivation is not something that always comes easy. you have to work at it, build it and nurture it, but sometimes it still lags. A poster is not going to get you up off the couch, it takes more than that, but when you are up and working out a few motivational posters of your favorite Hollywood or fitness stars can certainly help energize you for a few more sets.

Mohammed Ali Boxing Poster

I am a fan of these types of posters. I have a few of the ones on this page in my own workout room. Like I said before, these posters do not get me off of the couch, but I think they look great for the decor of my gym and they certainly give me a little bit of encouragement during my workouts.

Hopefully you will also like some of my choices for some of my favorite "star" motivational posters.

Marilyn Monroe Workout Poster

How did Marilyn get so beautiful? She worked really hard at it

I have to admit, this is my personal favorite star exercise poster. I am a fan of Marilyn, and think she is beautiful and elegant, but this poster is a lot more than that in my opinion.

Most of the photo's, posters and stills that we see of Marilyn are glamorous shot's or still from her many movies. She is almost always a poised beauty.

The part that we do not see is the behind the scenes work that it takes to make her look so good. No beauty comes without toil, effort and work. Anyone who has had a tough workout routine can tell you how much effort goes into getting and staying in shape, and this poster show just that, Marilyn looked great, but she too had to workout hard to get there and stay there.

Sylvester Stallone Workout Poster

Sylvester Stallone "Rocky" Workout Poster

Workout like a boxing superstar

I simply cannot think of a more inspiring workout montage than the scene in Rocky where he gets ready for his fight. Which Rocky movie? Well all of them.

Rocky is inspirational. Rocky is motivational. When I see this poster it makes me think back to all the hard work that good old Rocky had to go through to win in his bouts. Hard work, disciple, chasing chickens, hitting sides of beef, drinking raw eggs and running up stairs. If Rocky can do all of that,this motivational poster says to you -why can't you push your workouts just a little bit harder.

If the thought of Rocky chasing chickens, or running up the stairs can't inspire you to pump out a few more reps, then nothing on this earth can.

A great poster from one of the classic sports movies of all time. Get a poster of good old Sly Stallone for your gym today.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Arnold Schwarzenegger Exercise Poster

Workout like a Terminator

Arnold Schwarzenegger has had one heck of a Hollywood Career. Not to mention an 8 year run as governor of California. But before he was in Total Recall, before Predator, Even before he got his breakthrough role in the Terminator movie, Arnold was exceptional at something else: bodybuilding.

Anyone trying for a little extra "Ooomph" in the gym would be hard pressed to find a better source of inspiration than this 7 time Mr Olympia, who won his first Mr. Olympia title at the tender age of 20.

Love him or hate him, whether you are a fan of his movie or his politics or really not interested in his politics or movies, you still have to respect what the man has accomplished in the gym, so if you are like me, and you enjoy that little bit extra motivation to help you power through those workouts, this poster, taken from a shot of the movie "Pumping Iron" which follows the story of a young Schwarzenegger and his bid for another Mr. Olympia title.

Mohammed Ali Workout Poster - Place it like a butterfly, exercise like a bee

Born as Cassius Clay, Ali has been an inspirational star for quite a few years, both inside and outside of the ring. He is easily the single most recognized boxer in history and was often noted for his rhymes and his fun and engaging quotes. The above quote is just one of many from his career that are inspirational, motivational and one heck of a kick in the butt to get your but in gear and set your workout to new levels.

Ali was a gold medalist Olympian, and he had a great career as a boxer winning 56 of 61 matches in a stellar career. How could Ali not inspire you to give it that little extra bit of effort.

More Great Hollywood and Sport Star Posters - Turbo Charge your workout with these star posters on your wall

Here are a few more posters of famous stars. These are all some of my personal favorite posters, I have on the wall of my gym. I find they give a little bit extra encouragement in my workouts. Perhaps you will find the same.

NMR 24754 Bruce Lee Fight Decorative Poster

Bruce Lee. For Martial arts and general fitness there are very few who can stand up to Bruce Lee.

He was something special, and he is also an inspiration, particularly for anyone who has a martial arts background or who wants to build strength that is more about speed and power than brute force.

Marilyn did not got to be as beautiful as she was without some hard work. Her beauty should help to inspire and motivate anyone looking to increase their fitness with a good solid gym workout.


Michael Jordan Motivational Poster and Quote - Want it to happen -make it happen

Michael Jordan Poster and Quote
Michael Jordan Poster and Quote

Michael Jordan is, in my opinion, probably the greatest basketball player who ever lived.

He redefined the sport in a way that is few can manage, like Tiger Woods did for golf, like Wayne Gretsky did for hockey and like Ali, Marilyn and Schwarzenegger did for their respective fields.

Michael was a game changer, and a huge inspiration and motivation for quite a few people.

One of the best things about Michael is that he will be the first to tell you that he did not have any special skills. He just refused to be beaten, was highly competitive and worked at his skill like a demon.

Now that is something that should inspire and cajole you in the gym to get a few more reps in. For any fan of Basketball, a Jordan motivational poster should be in a class of its own and a must have for any home gym.
