    Motivation

    We already have a great spot with some great music. I listen to music in the gym, so I was wondering what motivates some of you outside the gym? Anythiong get you pumped and eager to get in the gym and destroy the weights?

     

    Personally I'm a big fan of quotes, so figured I'd share a few of the ones I liked.

     

    Muhammad Ali was once asked:
     "How many sit ups do you do?"
     His answer:
     Don’t know - I only start counting when it starts hurting..."

     

    "You want me to do something... tell me I can't do it." -Maya Angelou

     

    "Hard work beats talent when talent fails to wlork hard" -Kevin Durant

     

    "If you think you can or if you think you cant, either way you are right" -Henry Ford

     

    "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." -Albert Einstein

     

    Another thing I find is great motivation are movies. Some of my favorites being the Rocky series and Cinderella man.

    When I first started working out, I was always told that how you look at the end of your work-out is how you'll look in a month and a half before you work out if you keep lifting..  Obviously your gains slow down the longer you work-out but admire your pump because it's your hard work thats given you it.

    There is a new movie coming out called "Too Fast To Terminate" where Arnold goes back in time to find Sarah Connor only to realize she is a sweet 1968 Camaro Z28.  He falls for the car and together they cruise a post-apocalyptic wasteland saving people from zombies :-P

    Yep - I agree with this one completely.  Especially now when it's cold and you've hit the gym when no one else is and you get a great pump and you know that you've taken one more step to your goals!

    Cinderella Man is an AMAZING movie! One of my favorites. Russell Crowe plays a boxer who loses everything in the depression and comes back to beat the heavy weight champion after a horrible losing streak.

     

    You got to see it!

    This is pretty much what gets me to the gym:

     

    1) Watch one of Scott's YouTube video.

    2) Look at old pics from when i was massively overweight.

    3) Think about going on holiday to the Maldives with a good shape.

    Well seeing guys like Scott and Marc (Fitt) motivated me to get started in the gym a view months ago. they still do, but also seeing my own progress in the mirror and the supporting you guys, the members at Scott Hermans site. Even the ones who said I couldnt or called me grazy at my age, motivate me to ho on, by saying this.

     

    My music, linkin Park, Lady Gaga, Kathy Perry and a old one.... Midnight Oil, beds are burning lol

    I took photos of myself last year and THAT motivated me to start working out. Never going back to that body! Plus I like to read about fitness, and I'm motivated by a few people online such as @scott_herman and @erica_stibich Lol plus they are entertaining together. I like any kind of music that has energy for working out- it depends on my mood when it comes to genre.

    This one really motivates me. Hope it will motivate u 2. Make sure to frame it and hang it on ur wall somewhere. Preferably where you notice it everyday. I believe you can find a female version on the web as well. Just google images with the quote.
