As many of you know, I’ve worked in fitness for two decades. Over that time, I’ve accumulated some wonderful quotes that I return to over and over again whenever I need inspiration to get up and do what needs to be done to stay healthy. Here are a few of them:
* “Don’t let an old person move into your body.” -Dr. Wayne Dyer
* “Exercise is not just for healthy people. Exercise can improve back pain, arthritis, high blood pressure, diabetes, stroke, vascular disease, asthma, parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, angina, and heart attacks.” -American Medical Association.
* “You are never too old to get in shape. At different times, I have engaged in many different activities. I value staying active.” -Senator John Glenn
