Fitness in the mind before fitness for your body- A collection of quotes for your health

Updated on March 24, 2012

Before we begin, let's see what Olivia has to say about getting physical...

The question is...

don't claim baby fat if you are not a baby!

It is not considered baby fat when you are 45...

What a great video by Olivia Newton John...She is getting physically fit with all the right moves, don't you think? Okay, enough about that- let's get started with this hub and see how to get up and motivated to get fit and healthy!

Getting fit and staying fit isn't exactly easy for all of us. It takes motivation, to get us up and going towards a better, healthier self. I remember some 15 years ago when I never gave a second thought to my boobs, butt or waist line, those days are over-my children made sure of that. So now that I live in the land of second thoughts, I need some inspiration from time to time, and this is a hub that is intended to do just that- Motivate (with a little chuckle).

Please feel free to add some of your favorite, 'get fit quotes', to the comments. Now let's get started with getting healthier minds, so we can get to be healthier people.

We all have those inner voices...Which one do you listen to?


Fit or Fat; Whatcha think about that? Quotes by Others.

Quote #1- A vigorous five-mile walk will do more good for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult than all the medicine and psychology in the world. ~Paul Dudley White

Quote #2 - He who has health, has hope; and he who has hope, has everything. ~ Thomas Carlyle

Quote #3 - Exercise gives you endorphin's. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't shoot their husbands, they just don't. ~ Elle Woods (Legally Blonde)

Quote #4 - Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness. ~ Edward Stanley

The start of a not so great day.

Fitness Quotes from me to YOU!

Quote #5 - My motivation to stay healthy is within my pants, because once I can no longer get it all in my pants, I am no longer healthy nor am I motivated to go and buy new pants.

Quote #6 - If you want physical exercise, try having kids. Not only will you get exercise hauling them around, chasing them around, spinning them around, you will also be so tired you will pass out before finding the time to eat.

Quote #7 - I have no choice but to stay physically fit, my mind left a long time ago, so the only thing that keeps me from the looney bin is a hot bod.

I'd rather keep my top half from reaching my bottom half-How about you?

Quote #8 - Life is like committing to an exercise routine. If you do it half way, you will never truly enjoy its rewards, but if you commit to it and push yourself everyday, the benefits will be enjoyed for years to come.

Quote #9 - I am in no hurry to die. So I run every morning towards life.

Quote #10- If you take care of yourself today; your chances of seeing tomorrow greatly increase.


Who ever said exercise is no laughing matter was completely misinformed!

      Hi Holly... Thanks for this smiles... it is interesting over the years I have always stayed active and kept the weight in check. Only been the last few years I found I have developed a small pot and it is a battle to keep it in check now...
