My mom passed away at 41 from diabetes. And I’m 42, thank you. I didn’t want to do that to my son. So any time I was at the gym, that thing that helped me do that last squat was my son calling some other woman mommy. And that would just give me that extra oomph to do that last squat. I want to be around for him.
We are cutting things kids like-music, art, and gym classes; stuff that kept me in school. This country can’t survive without you kids. It’s all about you kids.
There are no shortcuts in life – only those we imagine.
If we each get on a treadmill right now, one of two things is going to happen… either you’re going to get off first or I am going to die. Period.
When I give the go ahead, go ahead,” Alyss said, the jungle gym having come to a stop less than a gwormmy-length from her face. What? the four General Doppels cried at once. Run when I say so.
I have never been a physically engaged person. Like, I was not an athletic kid. I was the kid who came up with a thousand excuses not to take a gym class. Even now, if I could, I would do all my work from bed.
A lot of times I go to the gym and I see people and they don’t know how to work out. There’s no routine or anything like that. I saw a guy who I haven’t seen in five years and the guy looks the same as he did five years ago.
I train all the time and the weird thing is I’m in the gym with people between 20 and 25 years old and I look in the mirror and I look better than they do and they are young kids – either they haven’t trained hard enough or they aren’t serious enough.
We play in the jungle gym of sexuality until our spirit takes us out into a clear field where we can see the stars, the ten thousand radiances of enlightenment. One of those radiances is the dance of sexuality.
Oh God, I’m awful at sports. In gym I just try and avoid getting hit in the face.
Health is worth more than learning.
I work out every day. Mostly it’s free weights and cardio. I don’t do that stuff where they throw logs at you, what’s it called, cross-fit. None of that. Mainly it’s just me in the gym, lifting weights.
I exercise at the gym with a trainer. I feel it’s very healthy, very important – important for everybody. I feel it’s good for you. It makes you feel better. It loosens you up a little bit.
Champions aren’t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them-a desire, a dream, a vision.
Instead of going to the gym, I dress in black – a lot more practical and much more fun.
My favorite part about going to the gym used to be leaving.
For a good workout, I go to At One Fitness in North Hollywood, where my trainer, Jon Allsop, puts me through it all. I like it because it’s a small gym and I’ve known the people for a long time. Jon will have me do cross-training where I’ll lift weights, jump rope, throw around a medicine ball and I never get to stop.
I always hate having to use the equipment after these huge buff guys who move, like, the entire rack of plates. Then I get on, and move two plates, you know like: CLANK! CLANK! “I’m the two plate guy!” CLANK! CLANK! “Anyone wanna spot me?” CLANK! CLANK!
Something that comes to us, some gym shoe that comes to us as a result of child labor from a brutal dictatorship, where people do not have basic freedoms, it wouldn’t bug me to tax the living Dickens out of that thing or even to forbid its importation whatsoever. But that’s a moral question, not an economic question.
I work at my life and I cultivate myself and don’t spend six hours in a gym. Some people would say I should but why?
The pain of discipline is nothing like the pain of disappointment
Hitting the gym to release stress is not nearly as effective as hitting the people that cause the stress to begin with.
I try to stay in shape, I work out in the gym, take my vitamins every day, and I guess maybe I have some good genes, but lately Ive been feeling it. You know, after all these years it does catch up with you. But just for now.
There’s not much to do in Atlanta, so the cast went to the gym together, went shopping together, and dinner was always a group thing. It’s that whole summer-camp experience that making movies tends to be anyway.
One of the big misconceptions about me is that I walk around in mini-skirts and high heels twenty-four seven and go to the gym in heels.
I did archery when I was in high school. In our gym class we had two weeks of archery and I remember taking the bow and arrow and firing it up and across the street into a car parking lot.
You’ll never find me in a gym.
I tend to go with a daytime look, pretty natural, but I always fill in my eyebrows – I hate if I leave the gym and my eyebrows aren’t done; I’m just very uncomfortable with myself.
I grew up in a gym in Miami, the one where Muhammad Ali trained. I had 142 amateur fights and lost three.
I had to get up run in the morning for 2 hours, go to the gym and also get good opponents as sparring partners because I’m a big believer in that how you train is how you will fight at least when it came to me that’s how it worked.
I eat meat. I don’t go to the gym.
Let the gym be a sanctuary for you to be at peace. Let it calm you and ground you and allow you to appreciate everything around you. Let it also be a place for you to unload and explode with intensity through your training.
I’ve been a member of some good gyms in the past. I love a good spinning class; I love a good aerobics class.
I just loved being in the gym. It was tough at times. Sometimes I wanted to quit, but I’m glad I stuck with it.
The only exercise I get is playing sports because I hate the gym. I try to learn to love it.
Before I had children I always wondered whether their births would be, for me, like the ultimate in gym class failures. And I discovered instead… that I’d finally found my sport.
It’s easy to get four days a week of training in and I don’t spend more than 55-60 minutes in the gym.
While the average person is home watching TV, the Leader Without a Title is in the gym getting stronger or at the library getting smarter or at the office getting better (or with their family growing kinder). Make this day count.
I try to go to the gym three times a week. And I have to watch what I eat. I’m a normal person.
A little backflip (backflips), but it’s not part of Parkour, but i like doing this since i did gym.
The word ‘aerobics’ came about when the gym instructors got together and said: If we’re going to charge $10 an hour, we can’t call it Jumping up and down.
I did quite a bit of running before, but it’s getting really cold so I joined a gym. I do a bit of swimming and I’m starting to do yoga again.
My mom is a gym teacher, and shes not musically inclined, but she always wanted to help me out with music as best she could.
I’ve done films where you have to get in shape for purely vanity reasons, when you read a script, turn to page 87 and it says: “Rips his shirt off and casually throws it onto chair” – and you’re going to go to the gym the next day because nobody wants to see your big fat arse out there taking your shirt off!
What we face may look insurmountable. But I learned something from all those years of training and competing. I learned something from all those sets and reps when I didn’t think I could lift another ounce of weight. What I learned is that we are always stronger than we know.
When I found out I had to take off my shirt in Teen movie, I panicked and hit the gym. I was like, “It’s going to be on film, documented, for my children to see. I can’t be 140 pounds. I need to put on a little bit of muscle.”
You want me to do something… tell me I can’t do it.
The gym is the best place you’ll ever be.
I actually have never been to a gym. I haven’t had time. I have been working for the last 25 years. I just don’t have time to put on a little outfit and go to the gym and work out and clean up and come home.
To put it another way, Michael Jordan was a gym rat.
If I had a reality show, it would probably be called вЂњKeeping Fit With Jesse Tyler FergusonвЂќ because then IвЂ™d be forced to hit the gym every day.
If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.
At the gym, men are just as self conscious and check themselves out in the mirror just as much as women do. In regards to cooking, men can do more than BBQ. All you need to do is askвЂ”but be sure to do it after the game! Oh, and, men do like salads, especially if they are topped off with bacon!
Good genetics are a start, but I have to go to the gym, look after my skin, and drink lots of water. It’s my job to take care of myself and my body. Happiness plays a big part in your appearance too.
It’s an empirical question whether training makes one more or less likely to get in a fight outside the gym. In some ways, I’m probably more likely to get into a fight, because I feel more competent, and I know what it’s cost me in the past to back down from fights, and I don’t want to feel that way.
My family belongs to a tennis club in Valencia, California, so I always go there. I play a lot of tennis with my dad and swim. And I like to go to the gym there.
I have my own gym. When you do jokes and they sell, you get a gym.
The church is the gym of the soul.
I go to the gym in the morning without any makeup on. Sorry, guys, if you think I’m ugly, but I don’t know anybody who goes to the gym with makeup on.
The support gets me to the gym but the doubt keeps me there.
I can’t be bothered to go to the gym, though. I honestly just can’t be bothered – it’s the most boring thing on Earth. I have tried and every six months I go ‘right, I’m going to the gym’. Then I do it for two weeks and get so bored by it.
I’ve done a lot of basketball drills, not a whole lot of competitive stuff. I have basically been in the gym everyday working on my game, working on the time off that I’ve had from the game, just getting myself prepared mentally and physically for the season.
Boxing is a science. You don’t just walk into a gym and start punching. Fighters are born with differences in physical ability, but you also see a big difference in their skills. That’s the trainers influence at work.
It’s not being superficial, but looks do attract me from across the gym.
If it wasn’t for my trainer – who comes looking for me three times a week before 7 A.M. – I wouldn’t get my butt out of bed and into the gym. There are many mornings when I think about faking a sprained ankle, but I just put it out of my head and make myself go.
Sit-ups and push-ups work without a gym.
Get out there, even if it’s a hike or something, just break up the monotony of going to the gym.
Yeah, I know. Terror Aerobics. Just wait until they get it at the gym. It’ll be bigge than pilates. –Eve
The greatest feeling you can get in a gym, or the most satisfying feeling you can get in the gym is… The Pump.
I never went to the gym before in my life. But, at 32, I notice that my body responds negatively to bad food, so I must make double the effort.
You’ve got to find ways to breathe while you’re dancing so that when it comes time for you to stop and sing again, you have it. To prepare, I do a lot of aerobic activity. Many times at the gym, people will look at me because I’ll be on the treadmill humming.
I just came out of the gym from three hours this morning. I got five hours of sleep. That’s it. Every day of my life, I’m trying to find a different way to get better.
I never go to a gym unless I have to for a role, a contract. I try to take care of myself as a human being, not because I have to be in front of the camera.
To be a champ you have to believe in yourself when no one else will.
I eat super healthy and I’m super fit. I dabble in every type of fitness. I have a trainer and I go to the gym. I do yoga as well.
I’ve never loved spending time on the machines at the gym. But I have discovered an exercise regimen I can dedicate myself to: yoga. It’s changed my body.
If Jennifer Lopez could write songs like Fiona Apple’s, she wouldn’t have to spend so many hours at the gym.
I love being in the gym.
Because I used to play a lot of sport, I’ve always been in decent enough shape. When I used to get asked to do a bit of body work before a photo shoot I’d lie and say, ‘Yeah, I’m going to the gym.’ I literally never did anything.
I have been going to the gym instead of the bar, trying to get back down to my fighting weight.
I think that older lesbians definitely didn’t take care of themselves. They didn’t exercise. But the younger lesbians, they’re very different. They go to the gym. They manage their eating. They’re much more fashion-conscious.
Obviously, everyone goes in the gym and does the biceps bells and the bench press, but when you’re injured, you work on your core, your pelvic floor, your groins, on glutes, and muscles you wouldn’t really know about. It does make you a stronger player all round in terms of injury prevention.
Train insane or remain the same.
You just can’t wake up out of bed and think you can figure out a gym. You definitely need some personal training.
You think like a boxer and behave like a boxer, and you try to live your life that way, being in the gym all the time and being careful to push the plate away at the dinner table. You don’t need dessert. When you’re out having fun, you ask for agua instead of vodka. It’s very important.
A boxing workout is the heaviest thing, but it’s the best. The worst part is that boxing gyms are the smelliest things in the universe. You have to lie down on the floor, where everyone has been sweating and spitting, and do 1,000 situps and push-ups.
Forget about the consequences of failure. Failure is only a temporary change in direction to set you straight for your next success.
I like to keep myself in shape. I run and do weights when I go to the gym.
I go to the gym, I swim daily and from time to time I meet with friends and do extra-curricular stuff.
I was a basketball player. I’m a gym rat. I’m always in the gym playing.
I love going to the gym and taking aerobics classes and kickboxing. Doing a variety of activities keeps it fresh and helps work other muscles that could potentially help you with your game.
For the most part I’ve been focusing on my knees, trying to keep those as good as possible. I’m 100% now, you know with rehab and rest and I feel great. As far as training and the routine I get up and bike for awhile, and go in and have a great leg day, and get a full day in at the gym and try to improve.
I hate yoga pants anywhere but the gym.
There’s no regimen. There’s no personal trainer. I love to go hiking because it’s an experience. If I need to gain stamina for a tour, I will run every single night on the treadmill, but I don’t necessarily like being at the gym.
I do ride a bicycle occasionally, but not those stupid stationary ones you see in gyms. I do have one of those, I must confess, but its quite literally a pain in the arse, so I dont use it.
I used to not really like going to the gym when I was playing tournaments because I’d be sore and stiff. But the more you keep doing it, the less soreness you have. And you actually start to enjoy it.
Without doubt, without hesitation, I choose gardening over the gym. I can’t stand going to the gym. It doesn’t appeal to me at all. Give me gardening every time.
A gym for the soul is a place where personal investment is required and the return is real.
I’m not jumping through the gym by any means. But I don’t need to be able to do that in order to be a great player.
I’m not someone who frequents the gym, pretty much ever.
Gold’s was the first bodybuilding gym made for bodybuilders.
I only box. It’s the only thing that keeps me sane. I can’t just go to the gym and run. I’d rather die. I played volleyball and rode horses my entire life, so just, like, moving to a city and having to go the gym was just, like, so weird for me.
All I do is work out. Oh my God! Half my life is spent in a gym somewhere, sweating.
But now, I get up every morning and go to the gym because I don’t like waking up stiff or in pain and wondering if my hip is going to hurt me.
I had a classic gym teacher in junior high who wore a weightlifter’s belt all the time.
You’ve got to block out all distractions when you train. Your focus has to be 100% into the rep. You’ve got to get into a zone. You know you’re in the zone when guys in the gym look you in the eye and then quickly turn away ’cause they see the fire. You’ve got to be all business.
You get out what you put in. If you want more, give more.
As they were building that library in that school’s gym [in the Breakfast Club], they built a rehearsal space for us. It was really an empty room taped out with the same dimensions of the library. And they had the tables all there. And he had us sitting at the same table. All of us.
I go to gyms quite a bit, martial arts gyms, MMA gyms. I try to train with the best people, with who’s who in the martial arts, just to keep myself sharp.
What they call “play” (gym, travel, sports) looks like work.
Lets talk about the holidays, more specifically, consumption during the holidays. If it’s true that ‘We are what we eat,’ most of us would be unrecognizable during the period that ranges from the night before Thanksgiving through that day in early January when everyone decides to return to the gym.
Chocolates and cakes are the biggest problem I have. That is why I punish myself at the gym because I know I can’t stop myself from eating what I want. I call it eating your cake and having it.
Fights aren’t won in the octagon, they’re won in the months leading up to them, in a near-empty gym, in the lost hours of a day, whether I feel like it or not.
The only place success comes before work is in the dictionary.
I honestly eat chocolate all day long. I do realize how blessed I am to be able to eat what I want and not have to live in the gym.
I can’t think of anything I would rather not – rather do than get up and not do anything. I have to do something. Whether it is painting, writing, acting, shopping, going to the gym, being with friends, going out – I just am a very active person. I have a lot of friends and I travel a lot.
Most people who are healthy, and I’m healthy, can’t even live my life. Trust me. I get up 530-6 every morning. I’m in the gym. I run a couple miles. I lift weights, and then I’m at work until 8-9 o’clock at night.
A female artist friend of mine recently told me that she was advised to ‘look more slutty.’ I asked her boyfriend what the equivalent advice for a man would be. He said to be more muscular. That made me rush to the gym.
On gym days, I don’t get to my desk until 4 in the afternoon, and everything except bedtime and the appointment with the liquid narcotic is pushed back a bit.
I discovered early in life that if you take gym first period, you can go into the wrestling room and sit in the corner and sleep.
Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, others make it happen.
I work out at Will Space four times a week. It’s a private training gym. It’s owned by my trainer, Will Torres. I just came from there, actually. I turned Mark Consuelos onto Will, so he goes there too. Today we boxed. It’s every kind of cross-training you can do.
They came from all over the world to work out at Gold’s Gym.
I do sport at the gym a few times a week, but I hate it. Work is my only remedy. I feel so twisted and horrible in the morning, but then I go to the office and I start feeling better. Work is my Tylenol. Extra-strength.
Some people get up in the morning, don’t go to the gym, they go take a shower. Well, I go to the gym, and I get a shower too.
I don’t believe in bodybuilders using steroids. If a man doesn’t have enough male hormones in his system to create, a nice hard, muscular body, he should take up ping pong.
Lawyers spend their professional careers shoveling smoke.
I try to stay in good physical shape, I don’t smoke, I don’t drink.
There should be a class on apartheid. There should be a class on why people are hungry, but there are not. There are classes on…gym. Physical Education.
I train 10 times over six days every week. I also have three gym sessions and four physio sessions so it’s a very busy life, but I wouldn’t do it unless I enjoyed it and unless I had all that support around me.
I get insecure about a lot of things. In my line of work, unfortunately, your appearance is important, and I’m always like, “Am I going to the gym enough this month? Have I been taking care of myself?” I get insecure about things from time to time.
I lived in a town of 400 until I was like nine or ten. My dad coached all the sports – he was a gym teacher and health teacher for grades K-12
I would like to be the first man in the gym business to throw out my scale. If you don’t like what you see in the mirror, what difference does it make what the scale says?
If you want to be an athlete, there’s no way around it: You have to go to the gym. You can’t Google your way to it.
If I can go every day of the week, that’s great and I’ll do it. Usually I can’t, so it’s about 4 or 5 times a week that I’ll go to the gym. I just do cardio and make sure I tone. I love spin class and yoga and I work a lot on my legs and my abs and my arms.
Most of the time I meet my trainer at the gym and we do a lot of everything: weights circuit with cardio, football drills, sprinting with weights on the treadmill.
Yes I never go to the gym otherwise because I think it’s a waste of time and the most boring thing on earth.
There’s something really liberating about feeling great in what you work out in because when you feel great in the gym, then you are just going to do a better job. You’ll feel more comfortable, which will allow you to push your limits.
I travel every single day, but I make it a point to hit the gym. I want to look good for the summer.
I’m inspired by watching and listening to people. For example, my first novel, The Scale, came to life after I overheard two women discussing their struggle with their weight at the gym.
I’ve just been growing right along. It’s painful, but it’s a great pain, and I like suffering for great results. It’s like going to the gym. It hurts really bad at first, but after a couple of months and after that diet, you’re looking so hot.
I don’t like going to the gym.
You get help at the gym. No one complains about that. You get help from your trainer. That’s commonplace, and I think we need to spend more time doing that with mental help. You know, a lot of us have issues that we don’t work on and we don’t deal with, and I try. I try my utmost.
I’m in the gym pretty much every day. I’ve been very strict about my diet during shooting. It all helps me bring as much authenticity to the role as I can.
I love the fight game. I like the brutality. I like the mentality. I like the aggressiveness, but I like the technique and skill. I like the stakes. I like the people around in the gym. I like the everyday, working class feel of a boxing gym.
When future archaeologists dig up the remains of California, they’re going to find all of those gyms their scary-looking gym equipment, and they’re going to assume that we were a culture obsessed with torture.
I like playing basketball and going to the gym. I don’t box, but I’ll ride my bike and go jogging or running in the park. Sometimes my lady and I go hiking.
None of us grew up feeling like winners. So thank you to the bullies, to the popular kids, to the gym teachers who taunted us, who rejected us and who made fun of the way we ran. Without you we never would have gone into comedy.
To be really honest, I don’t love the gym.
Use what you have in your gym. Try to do my training program, you will lose your fat and gain muscles at the same time.
To be a successful boxer, the last thing you need to be doing is turning up to the gym stoned. You’re going to get beaten up if you do that.
In the morning, I wake up at about 6 a.m. and I run for about 45 minutes, then more sprinting. Then I go back home, I eat and I sleep. When I wake up, I train – I do about three hours in the gym…
To go in the direction that I went takes a lot of work. And I don’t think you can do the work – the five or six hours of working out a day – if you don’t have a clear goal or know why you’re doing it. If you just hang out at the gym and train for five or six hours a day without a goal is almost impossible.
I don’t think I’ve ever not gotten nervous. When you work so hard for one special day or routine, you want to perform it better than you ever have. We always say at our gym, If you lose the nerves, you lose the sport.
Women are using makeup to make their eyes look puffy, their noses look red, and instead of going to the gym, they start their day with a brisk walk of shame.
Careers are a jungle gym, not a ladder.
I have a ballet barre in my gym. I turn the music up so loud that the walls are pulsating, and I go for it for an hour.
I don’t go to a gym. I find that really hard to do.
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.
The sign at the entrance to my gym locker room says, no cell phones please, cell phones are cameras. They are not. A camera is a Nikon or a Leica or Rolleiflex, and when you strike someone with one, they know they have been hit with something substantial.
Im the guy wholl drive 250 miles tonight and be at the gym tomorrow at 10 A.M., when people are still sleeping in. Im the guy wholl fly to Australia and find a gym. Fly back and first thing I do off the plane is work out before I shower or eat.
In Romania, I train on a bar that is bent. My gym has bad lighting and very little heat in the winters. Here in America, you have everything you need to train. It’s not in the bar or the gym or the platform it’s in you.
I’m in my best shape when I’m really anxious, because I have to get to the gym. Physically I’m in the best shape.
I nicknamed everyone in the gym. It was easier than remembering their names.
I don’t go to a gym, I don’t do yoga. I don’t do personal training.
Fall down seven times, get up eight.
I had old bunk beds that my dad got from Seabrook Farms. They were first used by German prisoners during World War II, who were sent to work the farms during the war. The metal beds with their thin mattresses could easily be used as a jungle gym and I loved them.
I do like a little make-up though. I like a little mascara and lip gloss at least. But when I go to the gym I’d feel weird wearing make-up.
I grew up in a big Irish, Catholic family. My dad was a pretty rough guy. So one of my brothers left home when he was 15 and found his way to the gym. It gave me the opportunity to go and spend some time with him and work out in the gym.
I’m not saying my wife’s a bad cook, but she uses a smoke alarm as a timer.
Theater is like going to the gym for actors.
I basically go to the gym three times a week to do weight training for one or two hours.
It’s like a muscle – if you stop going to the gym or stop running, you get weak. The military teaches you these great values, but we don’t keep up the discipline on our own, and we lose it. So wherever you go, keep that discipline up.
I accept that keeping in shape doesn’t come naturally, so I work hard. I hit the gym every day: Pilates, yoga, weights. I used to love wine but I’ve stopped drinking. I quit smoking and I’ll never start again.
If you’re trying to diet, what do you do? You grab your two friends and say, ‘We’re going to the gym; let’s do this together.’ Money shouldn’t be any different. If you’re trying to make progress, if you’re trying to save more, we really need to be able to get support.
You can allow yourself 72 hours of wallowing time. Then you’ve got to get into the gym, stop eating the ice cream and move on.
I occasionally go to the gym and I lift free weights, I don’t use machines.
You ever look for the remote control, but you can’t find it, so you just decide, “Ah, guess I’m not watching TV. I’m not gonna take two steps and turn it on myself. I’ll go to the gym if I’m going to work out.”
I’m not into the gym. I prefer dancing or tennis.
Mirrors at the gym only serve to remind me that I’m less of a man than I’d like to be.
I try to do an hour of cardio on the days that I have off, and then I’ll do 30 to 45 minutes on show days. That’s the first thing I do when I wake up, I have breakfast and then I’ll hit the gym.
Bodybuilding isnвЂ™t 90 minutes in the gym..itвЂ™s a lifestyle
Do any exercise you want as long as you’re willing to do it. You see gym equipment on TV advertisements all the time, but guess what? It’s only good if you actually use it.
I started running 3 miles every morning after throat surgery to remove a cyst last year. The gym used to be my adversary. But that has all changed. Now, I look forward to it every morning.
I run on the road long before I dance under the lights.
My favorite machine at the gym is the vending machine.
I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.
When my husband of almost 20 years canвЂ™t take his eyes off me? ThatвЂ™s amazing. But the number one reason I go to the gym is because it keeps me sane; I can deal with whateverвЂ™s coming at me.
You need to feel as good as you can before you start a workout. So what you wear to the gym is important.
I am quite a fitness freak. I may not have the time to sleep, but a workout is a must. I have even set up a small personal gym on the sets.
I’m not a huge gym person, so I try to stay away from the gym. But I love to run on the beach or go for a walk. It’s better than riding a stationary bike.
The way strength and conditioning has helped me now is that I make it a point to go to the gym everyday if I can.
I awake, I meditate, get the kids off to school, go to the gym, go to the Favored Nations office, and usually at around 1 pm I’m home and do music the rest of the day.
My fans are just amazing, all over the world I’ve been greeted by people with smiles on their faces by what I do at the gym and what I do on stage, and how can I not be excited when i’m getting ready for a contest and how can I not be pumped even when I’m tired.
I always say to myself right before a tough set in the gym, Ain’t nothin’ to it, but to do it.
When I was younger, my coach, Liang Chow, made all the decisions. I would go to the gym for practice, do exactly what Chow told me to do, go home, come back and start all over again. If Chow told me to do 50 squat jumps, I did 50 squat jumps.
Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.

Especially when I’m in the gym, I get really motivated by hip-hop.
Then the door flew open and Mr. Faulks told us to head over to the gym. I thought that was really smart. Get all of us in one place so the aliens didn’t have to waste a lot of ammunition.
When I played basketball, I spent hours On the court practicing. When i became a body-builder, I was in the gym all the time.

Pilates is my favorite meditative way to get in shape. I don’t like the gym and I don’t like running, so I just lay on my Pilates reformer. It’s great.

Trust that you often need to find happiness outside your comfort zone. The journey is a lifestyle choice. Focus on your mental health and your mind just as much as the physical, if not more.

I just find it funny what people will comment on, I try to not pay that much attention to it, but the crazy part is that if I’m doing a squat and I have an action photo, they’re like, “Oh your form is off!” And I’m like, are you kidding? I’m still at the gym and you’re not!

I found boxing when I was 14 years old. I went down to the gym because my brother, who used to beat me up all the time, introduced me to boxing. I found boxing to be a sport that I felt safe in because I controlled what was in those four squares.

When I’m in the gym, I’m in the gym, and that is my focus. But when I’m not in the gym, I’m enjoying being a mom and taking care of those responsibilities .. They really do provide me with the balance that I need to be a more complete athlete.

I find that, when I’m working, if I start the day with a run – outside, not in a gym, but just me out there in the elements, with only my own legs to propel me forward… It’s something to do with just being in the world and getting out of my own head.
Probably Lloyd in ‘Say Anything’ is the closest to me – or to who I was at the time. It was just a great love story about people in the ’80s, and we all tried to make it feel as real as possible. It was such a wonderful time. We didn’t leave anything in the gym; we put it all out there.
