The Best Motivational Videos on YouTube

I often recommend that you watch a motivational video on YouTube to get pumped up for working out. Here are a few of my favorite motivational videos that can apply to anything in life, not just exercise!

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward, only looking backward. You have to trust the dots will somehow connect in the future.” When you begin moving toward your fitness goals, it may seem slow at first. If you want to lose 5 pounds, 50 pounds, or 100 pounds, when you only reach 10% of your goal after a couple months it can be easy to give up thinking “I’ll never make it”. But keep your spirits up, and trust that exercise, a healthy diet, and hard work will always be better for you than any diet pills or “lose weight quick” diets.

Before you begin making decisions to live a healthier life, you must make the decision to change your mindset about your health and how it benefits you. You must be willing to think a bit differently than you did before to ensure you reach your goals. You must seek the benefits of a ‘mindshift’, and never give up.

You can’t take the easy road, you must join ‘the grind’ if you want to live a healthier life. True grit and determination are what will make you feel and look great. “The easy way out will always be there ready to wash you away, but you aren’t going to, are you?”

Quote of the Week – 12 Dec

“Don’t stop when it hurts, stop when you’re done!” – Anonymous

We will all have those workouts where we get 3/4 of the way through and our lungs are burning, we can’t talk without gasping for air, and our muscles want to quit. Even when it hurts, it’s important to remember that you will get the most out of your workout if you push through and finish what you started. Your body might tell you no, but your mind is more powerful that your body. Go in with the mindset that it will be challenging, and that you will conquer the challenge, regardless of the efforts it takes. Then when you’re done, you will know you are in full control of your mind and body.
