Top celebrity trainer and former professional soccer player Nicky Holender worked with LIVESTRONG.COM to create STRONGER, an eight-week, 30-minutes-a-day online workout video program. Nicky's celebrity clients include A-list movie stars, professional soccer players and CEOs of major companies. They all work with Nicky because he's the king of motivation, and he's helped all of them achieve the bodies of their dreams. When you feel like you want to give up during your workout, you’ll hear Nicky’s voice in your head pushing you on. Read on to see 16 of Nicky's most encouraging quotes that will help you overcome any excuses you have in your head.

1 “I CAN, AND I WILL!”

Sometimes our minds give up way before our bodies do. Right around the time you think you can't possibly do one more rep or hold a plank for 10 more seconds, just tell yourself “I can, and I will.” You’ll hear Nicky Holender say that phrase often, because he knows you can do it. Nicky will guide you through your workout routine with the highest level of enthusiasm. His daily motivation and coaching will help you get into the best shape of your life.

3 “IF THOSE LEGS ARE SHAKIN’, THE CALORIES ARE BAKIN’.”

This is Nicky Holender’s version of “no pain, no gain.” You’ll mostly hear this one during squats. As a former professional soccer player, Nicky knows the importance of having strong legs. Plus, remember that muscle burns more calories than fat, so the stronger your legs are, the more calories you’ll burn (even outside of your workouts). With STRONGER, you’ll burns tons of calories! Plus, the LIVESTRONG.COM Calorie Tracker dashboard offers tools to track your calories and progress daily so you can stay on track.
