Epic Gym Motivation (for 2017) – the past, the present and the future of fitness

12:00 Eugene Madondo 0 Comments

I decided to put together a motivational video to inspire people just starting out or who haven’t started working out yet but are planning to start training in 2017. This video is also to motivate regular gym goers who are still aiming to reach their goal physiques. In this video I decided to include motivational clips of the people who inspired me when I first started training back in 2011, I also included people who inspire me in the present whose physiques I believe are the most aesthetic in the world, and I included some young guys in their early 20’s whom I believe have a bright future in the fitness industry and will take over from the legends I included at the beginning of the video. I used some clips from Fit Media Channel which is my favourite fitness YouTube channel which is regularly updated and produces quality videos which follow the progress of the guys that are featured on the channel. The guys featured on this channel become really successful after being featured. It’s like fitMedia channel has a good eye for fitness talent. This motivational video does not feature super big classic bodybuilding guys, or Olympia guys, it features guys with physiques that I believe are aesthetically pleasing and that is guys who are fitness models and compete in men’s physique and muscle model categories. That is the type of physique I myself would like to have am working towards.

In the video I use speeches by the Legendary Greg Plitt who sadly passed away about two years back because he was one of the most motivational figures in the fitness industry and I used to watch one of his videos every time before going to pump iron to get psyched to destroy those weights. I will write down some of the words in his speeches as I believe they are very powerful motivational quotes, that are worthy of being written down and printed out to be read to yourself every day when you wake up so that you are in a mind set to succeed every morning when you get up.

 Greg Plitt Success Quotes:


“I get asked a lot, what is the secret of achieving goals? How do you really quantate it? How do you put it down so every day you know if you going in that direction of success or maybe you’re altered? And people are like, “man! Is it your genetics? Is it your…potential?” Is it…you know when it comes down to it, success has nothing to do with potential, it’s all about the perseverance of somebody, that will override any endeavour. If you throw shit against the wall eventually something will stick. You guys that have this potential or don’t have this potential, you know that shit dies, what continues or lasts forever is the perseverance to always show up…that’s what champions do. Every single champion is the same as every ordinary person, the only differential it that they show up to the event every single day, they see failure as a learning curve, they welcome failure. You learn more from failure than you ever will from success.”   

“If you find a fear, the quickest, the easiest way you can beat it is initially, right when it comes in. If you allow it to sit, it will grow roots and start breaking you down, destroying the potential and person you can be. Again the champions guys, it’s not their potential, it’s not their genetics, it’s their perseverance to always show up, always willing to fail because in failure that’s a part of success. Success is not a marathon of life of just ups, success is formulated through failures. Through facing your fears, through falling down and getting back up. That’s what creates the champion. Success does not define us, we define the success.”
