Top 10 movies that will inspire fitness


Hey Team, 

After posting the list of my top ten workout songs (check it out here: http://fitdp23-nevergiveup.blogspot.com/2013/06/10-best-workout-songs-to-keep-you.html )

 I started to get some inquiries on what movies I would recommend that would inspire fitness. A handful came to mind right away, but I did have to do some research in order to get a couple of ah-hah moments and remember some others. 

I thought I would start this list with an honorable mention leading into my list of the top ten movies that will inspire fitness, so here goes......




Honorable mention: Pumping Iron (It's a documentary, but if your serious about fitness how can you not be inspired by Arnold)


#10 The Program


#9 The Fighter


#8 The Gladiator



#7 Gladiator
 (This movie shares the same name as the #8 movie, but it is completely different)



#6 Never Back Down


#5 Million Dollar Baby
(Not a big fan of the ending of this movie, and I believe the NSCIA-National Spinal Cord Injury Association did boycott the movie because of the ending. Inspiring fitness until about the last 30 minutes of the movie.)


#4 Fight Club



# 3 Murderball

(Awesome movie-Documentary about Quadriplegic athletes lives and competing in a hard hitting wheelchair rugby game)



#2 300

(There are several workouts titled and designed in honor of this amazing movie)




#1 Rocky (any one of them... period!)




If you haven't already, check out these movies and let me know if you agree or disagree.
