No Fitness Mantra Will Workout For You

We all love motivational quotes. We love how they make us feel, and we like how it makes us think. HOWEVER, we can’t rely on feeling motivated to get us to the gym. Motivation will not suddenly show up and magically create a super natural energy in us that makes us run like a deer or lift like an ox.

The only thing truly magical is how our body changes when we run, even when we don’t feel like it. Or, how our physique changes when we hit the weights, even when we would prefer to hit the sack. Only after we keep showing up, day after day and working out whether we feel like it or not, is when the real magic happens. Then, we find ourselves more motivated than any fitness mantra could make us. Why? Because we motivated by our own results.

Stop waiting for motivation, and start working out. #getafterit
