Let’s face it: even the most dedicated exercisers need a little motivation boost every now and then. As the seasons change and the temperatures cool down, it may start to seem like staying in bed or curling up on your couch are better options than hitting the gym.

In those moments, it’s hard not to get in a debate with your inner self. Should you go… or should you just stay? We say – stop battling with the voice in your head and turn to the following quotes. External motivation in the form of quotes or positive fitness images can do wonders to get you up and moving.

For extra motivation, create a Pinterest board you can look at whenever your motivation is running a little low.
