How do you find Fitness Motivation?

October 1 2014 | CeCe Olisa

In July I went to the see Beyonce and her Hubby for the On the Run tour with some girlfriends. Everyone was going crazy, singing along and throwing up that dynasty sign, and I was standing there looking at Bey and thinking… I gotta start training harder in the gym.

While Bey’s body is banging, her figure wasn’t what inspired me– her stamina did. She’s a young mom with a demanding career and family and she’s physically able to tear up the stage for hours that’s fitness to me. I want to be able to tackle my life and have a little energy left to spare. I want to be agile and flexible… basically I dont want my body to fall apart.

In that moment Beyonce randomly motivated me.

My fitness motivation comes from different places (often from you guys on instagram, heyyy). But I know some people do things like vision boards, photos, etc.

As we start prepping for #PSPfit bootcamp, I’d love to offer my girls some ideas on where to look for inspiration when we feel like giving up…. any suggestions?

This week, to find inspiration, I filmed myself working out its actually kinda funny to see how I look when I’m in the zone, so I made it into a little workout vlog. Maybe in a few months I’ll be jumping higher than I am here…

    I like this. I’ve gotten to where I don’t mind so much how much I weigh but how it’s making me feel. If I had more energy it would be great.

    I’ve been on a fitness journey for about 3 months now- working out for an hour 3-4 Times a week. I have only lost 9 lbs but I am not getting discouraged this time. I am going by how I feel and how my clothes fit – not by what the scale reads. I finally let that go !

    Today you inspired me. I was watching one of your vlogs and realized I need to just get up put on an exercise video and do it.

    This post spoke to me in so many ways! I’ve struggled with emotional eating my entire life. It’s just this past year that I really have recognized that eating and my fitness is the ONLY thing I can control. It’s tough but girls like you keep me motivated! xoxo

    Oh man, this is great. I find it so, so hard to find motivation. Lately, I’ve been trying to picture myself on the other side of the workout, on the completed side. How good that feels, knowing that all I have to do is get through the next hour, and I’ll be there. Thanks for this great post.

    i just got out of the hospital. being so weak while i was there, and feeling such little strength in my own body, was terrifying. i know if i was in better shape getting through that ordeal would have been easier. my motivation for fitness now is to make my body strong. i don’t want to fall apart and i don’t want to die young.

    Nice post. I find out some thing much more difficult on unique blogs everyday. It is going to usually be stimulating to read content material from other writers and practice slightly something from their shop. I’d prefer to use some with the content material on my weblog no matter if you do not thoughts. Natually I’ll provide you with a link in your net blog.
