Exercise motivation quotes

If you’re not one of those people who wake up every day jazzed to hit the gym and eat lightly seasoned chicken and broccoli… don’t worry. You’re not alone. Following and sticking to a fitness and nutrition plan is tough, and there will be days when you can’t find any sense of fitness motivation at all. You might just want to throw in your very sweaty towel and give up. But that’s when these motivational workout quotes can save the (leg) day. Sometimes a few powerful words are all you need to get out of an “I can’t” or “I don’t feel like it” mindset and get you ready to tackle a workout or choose a healthy food option. When you’re struggling to stay on track with your goals, inspirational health and fitness quotes can help remind you why you’re doing what you’re doing, and why you shouldn’t succumb to feeling discouraged.

Regular exercise changes the brain to improve memory, thinking skills

There are plenty of good reasons to be physically active. Big ones include reducing the odds of developing heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Maybe you want to lose weight, lower your blood pressure, prevent depression, or just look better. Here’s another one, which especially applies to those of us (including me) experiencing the brain fog that comes with age: exercise changes the brain in ways that protect memory and thinking skills.

In a study done at the University of British Columbia, researchers found that regular aerobic exercise, the kind that gets your heart and your sweat glands pumping, appears to boost the size of the hippocampus, the brain area involved in verbal memory and learning. Resistance training, balance and muscle toning exercises did not have the same results.

The finding comes at a critical time. Researchers say one new case of dementia is detected every four seconds globally. They estimate that by the year 2050, more than 115 million people will have dementia worldwide.

Exercise and the brain

Exercise helps memory and thinking through both direct and indirect means. The benefits of exercise come directly from its ability to reduce insulin resistance, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the release of growth factors—chemicals in the brain that affect the health of brain cells, the growth of new blood vessels in the brain, and even the abundance and survival of new brain cells.

Indirectly, exercise improves mood and sleep, and reduces stress and anxiety. Problems in these areas frequently cause or contribute to cognitive impairment.

Many studies have suggested that the parts of the brain that control thinking and memory (the prefrontal cortex and medial temporal cortex) have greater volume in people who exercise versus people who don’t. “Even more exciting is the finding that engaging in a program of regular exercise of moderate intensity over six months or a year is associated with an increase in the volume of selected brain regions,” says Dr. Scott McGinnis, a neurologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and an instructor in neurology at Harvard Medical School.


Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson unveils awesome grey beard and starts calling himself Uncle DJ

The film's synopsis reads: "Former FBI Hostage Rescue Team leader and U.S. war veteran Will Ford (Johnson) now assesses security for skyscrapers. On assignment in China he finds the tallest, safest building in the world suddenly ablaze, and he's been framed for it.

"A wanted man on the run, Will must find those responsible, clear his name and somehow rescue his family who is trapped inside the building… above the fire line."


The Great One's Place

Johnson's other current and upcoming projects include the above-mentioned Ballers, the Indiana Jones-style Jungle Cruise, a Black Adam solo movie, a Fast & Furious Hobbs and Shaw spin-off, and the Jumanji reboot. Like we said, he's busy.

Get in here to experience something electrifying


It seems like pretty much everyone likes Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson these days. He churns out movies like crazy, stars in the HBO series “Ballers,” and of course has been one of the big stars in the Fast & Furious franchise. The man doesn’t just pose with cars on the screen, he’s also a bit of an enthusiast in real life. The only problem is at 6’5” and 260 pounds, he doesn’t exactly fit in many vehicles.

Still, The Rock’s car collection is pretty impressive. One that the actor used to make a dramatic entrance for the premier of “Ballers” was a Pagani Huayra. The hypercar is easily one of the most sought after in the world, but the actor obviously had trouble fitting in the passenger seat.

Another incredibly expensive and rare hypercar in The Rock’s collection is a matte white Ferrari LaFerrari. The hybrid isn’t a performance slouch, and the movie star was able to score it as a complementary lease. Once The Rock realized he couldn’t fit in the thing, he didn’t option to buy it. Imagine that.
