1. “Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.
–Jim Rohn
This one sums it all up. When you get down to it, your body is 100% your possession. At the end of the day, if you can’t take care of yourself then you cannot look forward to anything else in the future.

2. “Most people have no idea how good their body is designed to feel.
–Kevin Trudeau
Truth! If you don’t feel healthy, how can you function every single day? In today’s world, we aren’t even giving it our all because we are so consumed with technology and getting things quickly. It takes work but feeling good shouldn’t be an option.

3. “Our bodies are our gardens–our wills are our gardeners.
–William Shakespeare
Who doesn’t love a good Shakespeare line? And who would’ve thought of a better, more poetic wellness quote than him. Just like a garden, we have to cultivate our health—drinking lots of water and daily maintenance. But we also have to have the heart to keep the garden fruitful.

4. “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.
–Jim Ryan
How many people sign up for the gym at the beginning of the year? Most people motivate themselves at that time because of their New Years resolution. Then where are they by March or April? Countless people sign up, but going to the gym on a regular basis is the key to a successful member.

5. “I have chosen to be happy because it is good for my health.
This quote totally goes hand-in-hand with the other wellness quotes. Whoever goes to the gym and eats right with a positive attitude is the ultimate winner. If you’re not content with your diet and exercise, there is no way that you will reach your health goal.

6. “There is no giant step that does it. It’s a lot of little steps.
For new gym members, it’s hard to imagine getting past certain checkpoints. You’ll see buff or expert gym-goers using machines and running on the treadmills with ease; however, taking baby steps, knowing your limits and setting reasonable standards will make the bigger picture seem attainable.

7. “Health is like money. We never have a true idea of its value until we lose it.
–Josh Billings
If it comes easily, how satisfying is the reward? Many young adults take their health for granted because they can look forward to the upcoming years. But once they reach the age where their bodies go through certain changes, they realize the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes it’s too late, but this wellness quote put things into perspective.

8. “The best, most efficient pharmacy is within your own system.
–Robert C. Peale
Having a healthy system only means that you can fight off any illness that can inflict your body. Forget about medication or anything foreign to the human anatomy; being healthy is the most effective way to battle germs and sicknesses.

9. “Practice puts brains in your muscles.
–Sam Snead
Accurate. The more committed a person is to maintaining their health, the “smarter” (or stronger) their muscles will become. There are going to be bumps along the way, but once an active member gets past the point where they are consistent, they’ll learn their way around any gym. It’s difficult at first, but as they always say: “practice makes perfect.”

10. “Being healthy or fit isn’t a fad or trend, it’s a lifestyle.
It seems like more and more things these days are becoming trendy or fashionable, but being healthy does not fall into that category. One of the few, most precious things we have in this world is our health and well-being. It’s not about being fit or looking a certain way. Being healthy will never go out of style.

11. “Those who think they have no time for healthy eating…will sooner or later have to find time for illness.
–Edward Stanley
There is never a good time to get sick. Although this wellness quote isn’t about the gym, it’s embedded in the lifestyle someone chooses by signing up as a member. By choosing this quote, it gives your customers an idea of what they can do outside of exercising to maintain their health.

12. “Health is the state of body. Wellness is the state of being.
–J. Stanford
The ideal quote to bookend our list. Being healthy is a goal, but practicing wellness is a lifestyle. Consistently feeling good is a solid foundation for all gym members who want to stay active.
