If a man achieves victory over this body, who in the world can exercise power over him? He who rules himself rules over the whole world.
Your body is the church where Nature asks to be reverenced.
Marquis de Sade
It's very important to have the right clothing to exercise in. If you throw on an old T-shirt or sweats, it's not inspiring for your workout.
I think if you exercise, your state of mind - my state of mind - is usually more at ease, ready for more mental challenges. Once I get the physical stuff out of the way it always seems like I have more calmness and better self-esteem.
Fitness is a curve. You can be Lance Armstrong, or you can be really out of shape at the opposite end. People enter the curve wherever they are and then they can move up the curve, by better nutrition and better exercise.
Exercise is done against one's wishes and maintained only because the alternative is worse.
George A. Sheehan
I don't smoke, don't drink much, and go to the gym five times a week. I live a healthy lifestyle and feel great. I can run a marathon, you know.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
Here's what I tell anybody and this is what I believe. The greatest gift we have is the gift of life. We understand that. That comes from our Creator. We're given a body. Now you may not like it, but you can maximize that body the best it can be maximized.
I wanted to get really fit. I wanted to lose some weight. So I've been doing Pilates and yoga, trying to lean out my body so I won't be bulky.
I have been through various fitness regimes. I used to run about five miles a day and I did aerobics for a while.
So I've broadened the fitness concept to make it one of moderation and balance.
Kenneth H. Cooper
What's important is to get into shape and then not to have to worry about it. I don't want to get on stage and not being able to do something. Not being physically fit doesn't work for me.
My wife and I work out together almost every day. It's just a great way to spend time together. We're going to run a marathon together later this year, and that's one more goal that we'll accomplish as husband and wife.
It's been a long road back to health and fitness for me. I am just glad to have been given the opportunity to do what I love most.
Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning.
I have never taken any exercise, except sleeping and resting, and I never intend to take any.
I think exercise tests us in so many ways, our skills, our hearts, our ability to bounce back after setbacks. This is the inner beauty of sports and competition, and it can serve us all well as adult athletes.
In the midst of these hard times it is our good health and good sleep that are enjoyable.
Practice puts brains in your muscles.
I started running around my 30th birthday. I wanted to lose weight; I didn't anticipate the serenity. Being in motion, suddenly my body was busy and so my head could work out some issues I had swept under a carpet of wine and cheese. Good therapy, that's a good run.
Tactics, fitness, stroke ability, adaptability, experience, and sportsmanship are all necessary for winning.
You can't get rid of it with exercise alone. You can do the most vigorous exercise and only burn up 300 calories in an hour. If you've got fat on your body, the exercise firms and tones the muscles. But when you use that tape measure, what makes it bigger? It's the fat!
I think it's more important to be fit so that you can be healthy and enjoy activities than it is to have a good body.
It's challenging, but you have to at least try to eat right and exercise.
Our growing softness, our increasing lack of physical fitness, is a menace to our security.
John F. Kennedy
C. S. Lewis
Martin Luther King, Jr.
