7 Fitness Quotes That Are so Relatable They’ll Inspire You to Work out More

Getting the motivation to hit the gym is not always easy; You could be exhausted from the night before or have 101 things on your mind that you’re stressing about and feel as though you just don’t have the time for a workout. We’ve all been there, and we’ve all felt that way, which is why it helps when there are motivational quotes about fitness that you can relate to, but will also inspire you, especially if coming from real people.

Jillian Michaels is known for motivating people on Biggest Loser to be the best versions of themselves that they can possibly be, but her quotes on fitness are incredibly relatable. According to Shape, she took to Facebook in 2011, to share this pearl of wisdom:

"Nobody is perfect, so get over the fear of being or doing everything perfectly. Besides, perfect is boring. Today, instead of picking yourself apart in the mirror or with friends over drinks, start seeing your ‘imperfections’ as unique traits that give you character and dimension—because that's exactly what they are.”

Oprah Winfrey is not your average size 2 celeb, but she does have some incredibly inspiring comments about living a fit and healthy lifestyle, and how it’s not easy! According to Shape, she said:

"There is no easy way out. Believe me, if there were, I would have bought it. And it would be one of my favorite things!"

Heather Morris is inspiring for another reason because she reminds us how important it is to exercise and just how amazing you feel afterward. She told Fitness Magazine:

“When I’m working 16-hour days and I can’t work out, I get angry very easily. It’s because I’m missing all those good endorphins. For me, exercise equals happiness.”

Jennifer Hudson is a naturally curvy woman, but she decided to go on a health journey by joining Weight Watchers. She reportedly worked out five days a week and ate well, which transformed her body, and her life. According to Shape, she said:

"It's not a diet, it's a way of life that teaches you better skills. For years, I felt like I could never have ice cream, but now I can eat ice cream occasionally!"

And that’s important to remember: you don’t have to say goodbye to everything you love, just make smarter choices.

Minka Kelly reminded us all that sometimes you need a little extra motivation to workout, and that motivation can come from a personal trainer. She told Self in 2011:

"I've been working out with [trainer] Gunnar Peterson and it's completely changed my body, my life, everything. I cannot live without it now. When you have such a good workout, it clears everything up mentally, physically, and you just have a better day."

Eva Longoria may not like working out as much as other celebs, but her comments to Look magazine (Via Elle) in 2012, about how you have to go as soon as you get up are so relatable. She is quoted as saying:

"I work out in the mornings when I get up. I have to do it then...if it's after 11 A.M. it just doesn't happen. I have to get it done while I'm still on autopilot because I hate exercising. I have a gym in my house and a personal trainer who comes over. I tried Pilates, but I couldn't deal with it."

For Jennifer Lopez the struggle is real, but she knows how important it is to workout, even if it’s not fun. She is quoted as saying:

"It's so not easy. I hate it just like anybody else. It's not fun. You do it because you want to feel good and it does make you feel good after you do it."
