Arnold was the first major fitness influence in my life. It was reading his book as a kid and watching his films that inspired me to start lifting weights, I guess many people can say the same.
It was his dedication and passion that really motivated me. It's easy to criticise that he used steroids, that he may not have treated people so well etc, but his total commitment and desire to excel is why he has been so successful in all his efforts.
If you want something, go after it with all your heart! Here are some great quotes from him that may inspire you in more than just your fitness journey.
