Best Gym Motivation Quotes

Study finds finding a competitive edge is a great fitness motivator

It's well known that a lack of physical activity increases the risk of chronic illness and other health side effects.

National Center for Health has found that 69% of Americans between the ages of 18-24 failed to meet the federal guidelines for physical activity in 2014. The statistics are similar to other Western Cultures.

A study conducted by Jingwen Zhang Ph.D involved 790 students from the University of Pennsylvania who signed up for the 11 week program. The exercise program included running, spinning, yoga and weightlifting and also provided fitness training and nutrition advice. All this was managed via a website created by the researches.

The participants were divided into 4 groups of 6 people. The four groups were as follows:

Support team - could chat online via the website to encourage each other
Competition team - could see a leaderboard of how well other teams did and were provided with rewards based on attendance
Support and Competition team - could provide supprt for each other, see the leaderboard and provided with rewards
Control Group - no social contectivity to the website

The results showed that attendance rates were 90% higher in the competition teams compared to the other non-competitive groups.

The final attendance rate break up of the groups were as follows:

Support team - 16.8
Competition team - 35.7
Support and Competition team - 38.5
Control Group -  20.3

Not difficult to see that the competition with support team had the best attendance rate and as we know half the battle is turning up.

As we have discussed in other posts group training is a great way to continue an exercise program but having the added competitive edge thrown in makes it a powerful way to get fit and more importantly staying fit!

Will the 3 Week Diet program work for you!

<a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" alt="The 3 Week Diet"></a>


The 3 Week Diet plan was created by Brian Flatt and he claims that by following his 3 week diet program you can lose between 12 and 23 pounds of fat in 21 days. The claims are significant, so does it really work?

There has been enough positive feedback from people that have bought and followed his method to suggest that if your willing to take action and follow his method diligently, that 'yes' you can achieve the similar results.

Read a couple of testimonials of customers that have achieved their weight loss goals from using The 3 Week Diet plan

 23 Pounds in 21 Days!

You don’t know me but my name is Elisa and I bought The 3 Week Diet one month ago. I want to share my weight loss story with you, Brian.

Since having my first child, I've been carrying around an extra 30 pounds. I've tried many diets and couldn't make anything work. Your diet just made sense and showed me that everything I was doing before was wrong and a waste of my time.

The 3 Week Diet plan was so refreshing and so simple to follow. I did everything you said and lost 23 pounds in the first three weeks. I’m now starting the diet again to lose 7 more pounds. You have changed my life, and I am incredibly thankful.  

Elisa G.


17 Pounds in 12 Days!

I purchased your 3 Week Diet program before Christmas and started it on January 21. I found the book to be very informative and easy to read.

I’ve lost 17 pounds in 12 days, I’m just concerned that I’m losing too much weight, too quickly. I will admit I haven’t followed the guide exactly. I’m not sticking perfectly to the listed foods and meal plans (but mostly) and doing very little exercise, but the weight keeps flying off.

It clearly works and if I’d followed it exactly I think it would scare the living daylights out of me because of the amount that I’d lose  . So thanks again for the information. I’ve never purchased anything like this before because they are usually full of trash, but 3WD has been a pleasant surprise. Plus my girlfriend can't get enough of my new body!

5 Kilos (11 Pounds) in the Very First Week!

Dear Brian,

I’ve lost 5 kilos in my first week. It's my 10th day and I have included salad with some protein (eg. egg/ lean chicken) as you suggested. After 4 years of trying, the fat is finally coming off. It truly feels like magic! 

Thank you so much.

Vanessa B.
