Inspiration and motivation, the feelings you get that drive you to overcome obstacles in your life and achieve your goals. You may remember a post we did recently called Bodypace – Social networking for Gym Rats, we talked about the social network on Bodybuilding.com that was the perfect environment to socialise and gain support from other like-minded fitness enthusiasts. In this network there are some really inspirational people who have helped others make a difference with their training, and given them to drive to succeed. Here are a few of the top, most inspirational members of Bodyspace.

43 year old Laura Harris has taken up the bodybuilding lifestlye after a life of little to no athletic activity. Her no nonsense attitude of “working out is a pain in the ass” has found common ground with many bodyspace members. She stays motivated by remembering a childhood of Asthma and hospitals vowing that she’ll continue to “bust her ass consistently” to stay healthy and strong.
