04 Jun Ten great motivational fitness quotes to get you going
One of my all-time favorite inspirational quotes was delivered by Woody Allen when he said, “Eighty percent of success is showing up.”
I believe that’s especially true when it comes to fitness.
If you consistently make time to exercise, good things will happen for you.
Do you need a little extra push to get going on your workouts, or even life in general? Here are 10 more of my favorite motivational quotes to get you going:
