If anyone ever questions your commitment to getting stronger, it may be time to think very carefully about who you’re associating with. And with that in mind, we’ve rounded up some more of the best fitness quotes from the smartest — are at least wittiest — minds in strength sports, along with beautiful images captured by our good friend Preston Smith.
If you attended Wodapalooza 2016, you may have seen some of these performances firsthand, including showings from 4-time Fittest Man on Earth Rich Froning, reigning World’s Fittest Man Ben Smith, two-time CrossFit Games competitor Emily Bridgers, and Orange County’s own Kenny Leverich (who, by the way, may be the nicest person in competitive fitness).
So enjoy the following bits of wisdom from Kai Greene, Bret Contreras, Mark Rippetoe, and Lou Ferrigno — their words won’t help you lift heavier, but they may provide the motivation to get to the gym in the first place.
