Nearly 2500 Years of Fitness Wisdom


A few of my favorite fitness-related quotes for your enjoyment:

Hippocrates 460BC-357BC

“No citizen has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. What a disgrace it is for a man to grow old without ever seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.”
Socrates 469BC-399BC

“The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but instead will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease.”
Thomas Edison 1847-1931

“There are so many health food nuts out there that eat nothing but natural foods but they don’t exercise and they look terrible.”
Jack LaLanne 1914-

“I saw a woman wearing a sweatshirt with Guess on it. I said, Thyroid problem?”
Arnold Schwarzenegger 1947-
