Exercise is done against one's wishes and maintained only because the alternative is worse.
George A. Sheehan
It's not about weight, it's about fitness, and one component of being fit is to have relatively low body fat, because fat is not very efficient, whereas muscle is.
Don't get hung up on the size. If you feel bad about yourself because a 12 is what fits, take a Sharpie, and write '6' on the label.
Once you are over 30, 35 years old, I think everyone should get down to the gym and start moving again.
One of the things I've always enjoyed is moving around and staying fit. Physicality is such a big part of being an actor, but it's also about stillness and silence.
Exercise is the chief source of improvement in our faculties.
We've got to get people out of their cars, out of those drive-thru windows, get them walking, get them in parks and get them more active.
There is a moment when you get older when your metabolism slows down and you don't feel like working out any more, so you don't want to keep yourself fit any more, but that's your decision. Why should you be judged for it?
I would rather exercise than read a newspaper.
I'm French, so I'm quite lazy about exercising, and I smoke. But I do love going for a run in the morning with my dog. That's all.
The only weights I lift are my dogs.
When I'm on the road, I'll break my exercise into a cardio session and a weights session.
Cycling keeps me lean and I need to stay in shape, especially as I still like eating chocolate and ice-cream! I like to go mountain biking too. Running is also good; it's what we were designed to do as humans, so it comes naturally.
So I've broadened the fitness concept to make it one of moderation and balance.
Kenneth H. Cooper
Don't get me wrong, I think bikes are terrific. I own several of my own, including a trendy mountain style, and ride them for pleasure and light exercise.
Training is such a vital part of preparation for a game, you really do train to play. It tops up your ability, like sharpening a carving knife. You can get away with not doing it for a while, as long as you have reached a certain standard of fitness.
Graeme Le Saux
A year ago I had a back injury and followed a good nutrition program to help speed up my recovery. I focused on exercise and staying healthy in order to get back out on the ice.
My bottom is so big it's got its own gravitational field.
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.
You need to eat normally and healthfully, and you need to exercise. I'm so passionate about this because I think people spend their lives not happy in their bodies.
I didn't have the same fitness or ability as the other girls, so I had to beat them with my mind.
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.
When I do get time, I like to hike and I take lots of vitamins and powders to keep healthy.
I love to swim for miles; I could just go back and forth.
I'm still very professional about my fitness. I stay in trim as I always did.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
