Fitness Affirmations – Positive Affirmations For Exercise

fitness affirmations

Getting fit and staying fit doesn’t have to be hard if you have the right mindset, and fitness affirmations are the perfect tool to get your brain on your side and help you to start making positive changes towards your fitness goals.

Use the following fitness affirmations to help take your body and your fitness levels to the place you want them to be. 

Begin by choosing just 1-3 affirmations that truly resonate with you and your needs then use them in the way that suits you best.

You should work on your affirmations at least once a day, preferably twice a day and repeat each statement 10-15 times during each affirmation session.

You can choose to:

  • Say them out loud (sometimes in front of a mirror works well)
  • Say them in your head
  • Record them and listen to them as you commute
  • Write them out – like ‘writing lines’ at school to cement them in your brain
  • Print them out or write them and then recite them while reading them

Whichever way you choose to work with your chosen affirmations, just remember that consistency is key as well as truly believing in your words and the process.

Here are all of the best fitness themed affirmations that might be of use to you:

While this is an extensive list of fitness affirmations, there are many, many more that could be created to suit your needs.

Mix and match parts of the above affirmations to create statements that truly resonate with you.  Or, create your own from scratch! Writing your own positive affirmations is easy once you get the hang of it.

It’s important to frame your statements only in the positive – you don’t want to cause confusion in your brain about how you want it to change.

For example, you would never want to use a statement such as ‘I won’t eat junk food anymore’ because your brain may only take on the most important parts of the statement and thus only be ‘hearing’ ‘eat junk food’, so, instead, talk about a positive thing you will be doing, such as ‘I will enjoy eating healthy foods’. 

The best, and most powerful affirmations begin with phrases such as:

  • I am…
  • I love…
  • I will…
  • I enjoy…
  • I choose to…

So, if you’re not finding any affirmations in the above list that truly resonate with your own fitness goals and ideals, then have a go at creating your own, tailored to your needs.

Just remember, practice regularly and consistently and you’ll start to see the ‘magic’ happen.

So, what are you waiting for? Choose 2 or 3 of the above fitness affirmations that really resonate with you and make sense for your fitness goals.

Then decide how you will practice your twice daily affirmations – read them aloud, read them in your head, write them down or listen to an audio recording. Choose the method that feels right to you and fits in with your lifestyle and then get started.

Your super fit, dream body is not far away!
