Monday motivation fitness quotes

Do you ever have those seasons where you are working hard on something or toward something and you’re just a little (ok, a LOT) tired and beat down?


There is so much work and mental focus when you are trying to level up [in ANY AREA] that sometimes you need a friendly pat on the ass, and a reminder to keep your head up.

So this weeks post is dedicated to just that.

Monday Motivation: 9 Fitness Quotes to get you Focused AF.


"The thing that will kill your dream, is the obsession of what other people will think” –Ed Mylett


People are either:
1) Judging you regardless of what you do–in which case you should DEFINITELY go after what you want
2) They are too focused on their own stuff to even notice what you’re doing.

Friend. It is on your heart for a reason.
It doesn’t have to make sense to anyone but you. Sometimes it won’t even make sense to YOU. But the fact that you can’t stop thinking about it is a SIGN from the universe to move toward it. It doesn’t get any more obvious than our own body telling us to do something… and yet for some reason we wait for a “sign”.

Enough is enough. Stop fighting it and move the direction your heart is pulling you.   

Also, Ed Mylett is the bee’s knees. Take the time to explore his world if you haven’t yet!

Monday motivation fitness quotes


"Clarity comes from Engagement, not thought." – Marie Forleo

Marie Forleo is PREACHIN. Pretty much always. But especially here.

You might know it as analysis paralysis. When we think about the thing and never make the move- we are robbing ourselves of the learning that comes with movement.

Friends, make the MOVE. Information, insight, understanding- all comes with movement. Whether it’s right or wrong- you won’t know until you move. And even if you make a wrong step- you are perfectly capable of making ANOTHER move- to get where you need to be. If you are confused about which way to step- just STEP. You’ll have a different view, with brand new information when you do.



"Remember, growing always feels like breaking at first." – Jay Shetty

THIS. IS. KEY. And so freakin true! Being uncomfortable is one of the best things you can search for. The chick has to hit up against all the walls of it’s shell before it breaks apart. A butterfly in a cocoon has to outgrow the place it's in before the time comes to spread it’s wings and fly. A seed has to completely break apart and become something unrecognizable before it can put down its roots, bust through the ground and bloom.

Don’t avoid the discomfort. Thank God for the opportunity that’s coming and lean in.

Jay Shetty has one of the coolest stories. Monk/Motivational Speaker.. does it get much better than that?

Monday motivation fitness quotes


"The goal isn’t to get rid of all your negative thoughts and feelings- that’s impossible. The goal is to change your response to them." – Mel Robbins

Can we just leave it at that? The top dogs- the best of the best- still have those thoughts, fears, and insecurities coming at them. The people who win and KEEP winning are the ones who hear them knock, but keep the door closed.

Write that down, Sonny. #Deep

Also, I assume that you’ve seen this video. But on the off chance you missed it- GO!


Monday Motivation Fitness quote NUMBER 5:

"You will never change your life until you change something you do daily. The secret of your success is found in your daily routine." – John Maxwell

Are you putting in the time and the effort? Like really, if your best friends LIFE depended on you figuring it out… what adjustments would you make to ensure their safety? Now…don’t wait for someones life to depend on you before you make the game changing adjustments.

Monday motivation fitness quotes


"If you can’t fly, then run. If you can’t run, then walk. If you can’t walk, then crawl. But whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." - Martin Luther King Jr.

The idea that “anything worth doing is worth doing poorly” changed my life.

Seriously. Brushing your teeth for 30 seconds is better than not brushing at all. Exercising twice a week is better than nothing at all. Working on your dream for an hour a day- is better than nothing at all. Start wherever you are, with whatever you have and just move forward. A small step in the right direction is better than no step at all.



"Fear is going to be a player in your life. But you get to decide how much." – Jim Carey

Fear will never be absent. Read that again. You will NEVER be fearless.

But you can be brave and afraid at the same time.

You can step forward with shaking knees, you can say yes with butterflies in your stomach. You can feel TERRIFIED and still jump.

Jim Carey motivates graduate students in this video and it’s a must watch.

"Don’t apologize for wanting more in life. Appreciate what you have, but BECOME what you were meant to be." - Brendon Burchard

I struggled with this for so long. Feeling like wanting more meant that I wasn’t thankful for what I had.

But that’s a lie designed to keep you stuck.

Chuck it in the fu*k it bucket and move on, babe.

Mr. Burchard is a must follow.



“No matter how many mistakes you have, or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.”- Tony Robbins

On a long enough timeline- you will GET there. Don’t worry about the trip ups or the slow days, or the heavy days. They will happen. Just don’t be the person that stops trying because of them.

This is My FAVORITE Tony Robbins Video.

Bonus Monday Motivation fitness quote:

“You cant read about doing push ups and get better at them. You have to do them. What makes you think reading inspirational quotes all day is going to get you there? Go do the work.” -Gary Vee.

Unsurprisingly, Gary Vee is right. Again. (Seriously- get in this guys space. He is the tough love you NEED in your life)

Reading and researching is great… but at a certain point you have to execute.


SOMETHING is on your heart or in your head that you can’t ignore.

Whether that’s going back to school, starting a business, rebuilding a relationship, running a marathon, earning a promotion, surviving a teething baby- or making moves in any area of life- don’t stop just because it’s hard! The struggle doesn’t mean it’s wrong, it just means there is something valuable on the other side.

So if you’re 5 years in or standing on the edge waiting to jump– my message to you is the same;

Don’t stop short of something that you know is for you.

Hustle. Grind. Work. Dream. Pursuit. Faith. Whatever you call it- can feel like an unfair fight at times. But the only thing worse is to step out of the ring and always wonder… what if.
