Default which celeb inspires u to lift weights?


Which celeb inspires you to keep lifting weights? For me, it's Jackie Warner, Jillian Michaels, Linda Hamilton (Terminator 2 film role), and Hilary Swank (Million Dollar Baby film role).

I'd say Hilary Swank was the first to come to mind. Cuz I know I can't get a back like hers without putting some weights in my workout... but I'm also totally with you on Michelle Obama.
Weight at delivery: 236

The way I feel inspires me to lift. Celebs don't do much for me. Just me, I guess.

Falling down is not failure....Failure is staying down.
Save the Earth, it's the only planet with chocolate and wine.

It isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain.

I love the way I feel when I lift weights . . . but the vision of Jillian Michaels' arms makes me see what is possible

I would have to say Jillian. I also like M Obama's arms.

Yes, also love the way resistance exercise makes me feel. This morning I did "dips" off the park bench and I do about 50 pushups everyday. I guess it isn't exactly the same as weight training but for me, it works.

I am TOTALLY inspired by Gwyneth Paltrow and her workouts with 3 lb DBs.
And her trainer Tracy Anderson. That's the way to train. (NOT)
Dearest Schumeany: Yes, those are size 4 jeans hugging my posterior. Thank you for being such motivation!!!

Linda Hamilton here too. I used to have definition like that when I was a dancer 15 years ago, I doubt I'll be able to get it back but I can aspire to it.
