Exercise Quotes

RunnerArticle by goodreads via  http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/exercise

We can all use some words of encouragement from time to time. Not only do they lift our spirits, but they can provide us with that little something we need to keep moving forward. Here are a few quotes  to help keep you going:

 

“An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.”
Henry David Thoreau

 

“All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols

 

“Get comfortable with being uncomfortable!”
Jillian Michaels

 

“When it comes to eating right and exercising, there is no “I’ll start tomorrow.” Tomorrow is disease.”
Terri Guillemets

 

“No body is worth more than your body”
― Melody Carstairs

 

“Sometimes customizing is necessary because of an injury or the inability to do, for a short or long period, the kind of exercise you formerly did. When you’re used to customizing for fun, doing it under duress won’t seem like such an imposition. Either way, experiment until you find activities that make you happy as well as healthy. Choose your exercise using the same criteria you’d apply to choosing a date–that is, attractive to you and able to hold your interest for an hour.”
Victoria Moran, Younger by the Day: 365 Ways to Rejuvenate Your Body and Revitalize Your Spirit

Article by: Jennipher Walters, Certified Personal Trainer and Group Exercise Instructor via www.sparkpeople.com

You’ve probably heard of the fitness craze Zumba, a workout known as a dance fitness party. I originally tried Zumba with a friend by following a fitness DVD.While the DVD was fun and the hip-swiveling moves were a blast (and effective at working up a sweat!), the best part of the workout was dancing with my friend—and giggling at each other as we tried to get our hips to salsa, merengue and cha-cha-cha like the girls in the video.Fast forward a few years, where I stumbled upon Zumba in a group workout class.

Even though exercise wasn’t the most exciting activity you had experienced, you began feeling better and seeing results from your hard work. You managed to get yourself out of bed early, to squeeze in a little gym time each day, and stick to your plan without much effort.But then slowly, the novelty began to wear off. You started finding reasons to sleep in and found “better” things to do with your time.

Learning to Love Exercise

Yes, working out can be fun! Here are ideas to help you move beyond “having” to exercise to actually enjoying it.

Article by: Melissa Chessher via www.weightwatchers.com

Learning to Love Exercise

We’ve all made an early dash to the grocery store and witnessed that woman jogging. She looks graceful as she bounds through the neighborhood, and we wonder what on earth made her get up so early on a Saturday and dive into her running shoes. The answer, of course, is that she moved beyond the “need” to exercise and entered that mysterious land where she “wants” to.

We all possess the ability to tap into that place. In fact, it’s kind of like Dorothy’s red slippers — you’ve had it all along.
