I was wondering what is it that fuels your drive to work out 24/7? I was going for about a month straight then i just started not going some days till it was not going all together

You gotta start working out truly for yourself and you will be commited. I am just starting because I truly want to be healthy and not gasp for aor after running a block....ya know ?

For me it was remembering that my grandfather died at 34 due to a heart attack. I don't have a weight problem, but I'm now 34 and don't want to leave my wife a kids behind!

When I see pics of woman who's bodies look amazing. I just think I want to look like that, that is why I look at inspiration pics everyday so I can stay motivated :)

Its a personality thing .. some see working out as fun and enjoy it so they dnt need "Motivation" some see it as work or somthing tht needs to be done or somthing they hav to do.. I like it I do it ..its fun and I like how it feels... find an activty tht u love and u wont hav to be motivated nor lose motivation...I hate cardio so you want find me doing workouts with lots of burpees high knees and running in place and stuff like tht but I love basketball and weighttraing and by incorporating circut training I get plenty of cardiovascular activity If I need more Ill walk treadmill but you get the point change ur mind set find something u love never lose motivation again

Because I'm on a college dance team and all we wear is crop tops and shorts....I HAVE TO STAY IN SHAPE or my coach will give you the talk and tell our trainer to give you extra workouts... but before that I've always worked out for the fun of it, for good stamina, and for my well being since diabetes and high blood pressure runs in my family...and honestly I LOVE exercising it's like my way of getting high...it's weird but so true

Mine's would be looking at other women who lost a lot of weight in a year, so I think I can differently do it too!!

Mine is looking at my 2 kids and thinking..I wanna be around to see their kids. Reminded all the time of the health issues my family already has. Also I look in the mirror and think I can be better. I haven't logged a workout in a while. I go to the gym 3 to 4 times a week. I do exercise moves I learned from here there. The time I have put into what I do...I can honestly say I am better, but not finished.

I am motivated by the thought of how it makes me feel if I don't do it. I like trying new things often so when I skip a workout it's as if I'm denying myself a new experience. Maybe I could have broken one of my records that day, but I would never know because I didn't try.

My drive to start working out is looking in the mirror everyday at my stomach nd butt . Which is nothing major but problems i would rather resolve now than later !
