As Crossfit athletes we’re usually fully focused on our tasks, very determined and pretty tough. Sounds great, but the reality is different as we’re all just flesh and blood to the bone: we struggle too. Which means that almost everyone of us knows what it’s like to feel unmotivated and, well do you know that feeling when you could just stay in bed for three more days and sleep over the troubles currently messing up with your life? It would be nice if this could be a reality, but it’s not. Sometimes things need to be done no matter the mood you’re in. And at the time, a motivational quote or two, can boost up your attitude and give you a fresh perspective on the challenges ahead.

These 50 quotes will help you gain some extra motivation!
