It's safe to say that most people know that working out has benefits that go beyond just looking good. For some, the motivation for heading to the gym comes from wanting to fit into a certain dress or wearing a bikini on their next vacation. While there's nothing wrong with wanting abs and toned legs, sometimes having a reason to work out, aside from the physical aspect, is what you need in order to stay focused.  

Some people depend on working out in order to keep their physical and mental health in check, and it's something we should all do for ourselves and our well-being. Living a healthier lifestyle takes plenty of discipline, drive and commitment, and it's awesome to be able to stick to a routine. It's also fine to feel uninspired at times and like you're dragging your feet on the way to your sweat session. There are ways to get out of that rut, and that's to remind yourself why you started in the first place.

We're often bombarded on social media with photos and videos of people absolutely killing their fitness journey. While sometimes those people make us feel intimidated or make us think that we'll never look like that, we can always look to them as a push to get us out the door and get us moving. Jacqie Rivera has been documenting her incredible weight loss journey and she's definitely someone we can easily relate to because she's so open about the process. Eiza González often shares pics and videos of herself at the gym, and she said it's a reminder of how proud she is of herself. "Shameless because those who know, this s--t is HARD and it takes dedication and discipline," she captioned a gym selfie in May 2018. "I'm so proud I've been able to push myself further. Never thought I could."

There are other celebrities like Eiza who are also ultra committed to stay in shape and look their best, and they often post their workouts on Instagram. Looking a certain way is part of an entertainer's job, and staying in shape is one of their responsibilities. While they have access to the best personal trainers and nutritionists, their effort to stay driven is still admirable. For the rest of us with desk jobs or with less time than them, sneaking in a session at the gym on a busy day can be difficult. If you're feeling stuck or lacking that incentive to get your weightlifting on, scroll through to take a look at these celebrities who remind us that taking care of ourselves in mind, body and spirit is super important.
