Pinspiration! 22 Images to Get You Moving
A little bit of "umph" might be all you need to squeeze out that last rep or go that extra mile. This super inspiring pin, courtesy of our friends at FitSugar, is our gym motto!
Mind Over Matter
Not feeling your workout today? It's likely all in your head! Focus on your end goal, not all of the things you have to do to reach it, to get your body in motion.

4% of Your Day
You know that convenient "But I don't have time to work out!" excuse? When you think about it, a one-hour workout is only four percent of your day. This pin reminds us that if we make it a priority, we can make it happen. So sign out of Facebook and get your rear in gear!

The Power of Persistence
Face the Facts
We can hear the late-night infomercial now: "Slim down and tone up just by imagining you're at the gym!!!" Until that day comes (and even then), face the facts. You may have every intention of going to the gym, but it doesn't count unless you actually get there.

Sweat Like a Pig, Look Like a Fox
So true. Next time you're sweating through an intense workout, wanting to throw in the towel, think of the fox.

Only focusing on how much further you have to go to can be discouraging. Remember to look back at how far you've come for inspiration too!

Results or Excuses?
I don't have gym clothes. It's snowing. I have a lot of work to do. Sound familiar? This pin is exactly how your brain should respond. No matter what obstacles the day throws at you, you can stick with it if you choose to focus on results, not excuses.

It may be funny, but it's totally true: If you're struggling to fit in your workout, you may still need to find your true motivation to get fit. Besides fitting into your skinny jeans, why do you want to get in shape? Conjure up an image of yourself at your healthiest and most energetic (not just thinnest) to get in gear. (Oh, and imagining being chased by a T-Rex probably couldn't hurt either).

Words Don't Make the Change
We shape our future by what we do each day, not by what we say we're going to do. So what are you doing today?

Consider This Your Sign
If you're waiting for a "sign" or a big life event like a wedding to get in shape, you're letting valuable time go to waste! There's no time like the present, so stop waiting and wishing, and get to it.

Make It a Habit
There will be days when you don't feel like exercising, but when it's just as much a part of your routine as brushing your teeth, you'll be much more likely to fit it in.

Truer words have never been spoken. Getting out the door is the hardest part, so stop thinking about it and just do it.

Should You Work Out Today?
This amazing self-help guide/flowchart created by Fuse Pilates was designed specifically to help you not "do crazy things like e-stalking your ex or watching a three-day marathon of the Real Housewives instead of taking care of yourself." Excuses? Consider them gone. There's no way out of this chart without a workout!

Something Always Beats Nothing
Think about this pin from Greatist.com next time you're on the treadmill. You don't have to set a PR every day; the fact that you're moving counts the most.
You Have the Tools
Coming from NIKE, this means a lot (and the amazing pic of Olympic athlete Hope Solo doesn't hurt). Stop telling yourself that you need that special pair of leggings, trendy sneakers, or luxury gym membership to really get in shape. You already have everything you need. Just do it!

Focus on the Feeling
This pin is a great reminder that fitness should be fun, and you can't take yourself too seriously. So go ahead and dance like no one is watching!

You didn't get out of shape overnight, so you can't expect to see major changes after one week of working out. Be patient and consistent, and find comfort in knowing that you're completely in control of the way you'll look and feel one month from today.

She See's You When You're Sleeping…
Inspired by fear? The next time you think you can't eek out another pushup, imagine Biggest Loser trainer Jillian Michaels is standing over you (with a camera crew). It's amazing what your body can do when it doesn't want to disappoint an attentive audience.

A Guaranteed Good Mood
It's an oldie but goodie. How many times have you ever regretted working out? That's what we thought.
