T. Boone Pickens

I cannot empathize with people who say they have no time to exercise their bodies. If they only knew the added enjoyment they would get out of their business and personal lives if they committed an hour a day to staying fit – not to mention the mental benefits – they would do so, starting today. To those who say, “I do not have the time,” I say, “Make the time.”
Gary Player

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Patrick Cohn

As the CEO of a substantial company, finding time to exercise three or four days a week was the most difficult thing in the world. I finally learned to treat it like another appointment. I even told my secretary to schedule it.
Joe Sciortino
