Movies have the power to inspire us in so many different ways! We take away so much with us after watching a movie, both consciously and subconsciously. This take away is most enriching when we get inspired to bring in a change in ourselves. And then, there are also a few movie experiences that leave us all pumped up to get our life back on track and ourselves- In Shape! Working out and Staying fit is not an easy task and it takes both physical and mental stamina to achieve that. And, who better to inspire us than our favorite actors who go an extra mile to ‘fit into’ a role or a character that works its way out with the help of great physical fitness. If you are looking for films that give you a great sense of inspiration to get out there, sweat it out and stay fit in body, mind and soul, you are at the right place. Here’s the list of top fitness movies on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime. You can use the videos from these movies to exercise and workout at home.
1. Karate Kid (Series) & Next Karate Kid (1994)
Now who wouldn’t agree to the need of some self-protection techniques in a world where you might have to face quite a few kinds of bullies? While we can all hope for someone like Mr. Miyagi to come and rescue us in times of danger, it’s always good to have our own back and be prepared. All the four parts of ‘Karate Kid’ have a master named Mr. Miyagi who teaches his young student to go out there and face the world with the help of Karate. This movie has been a huge inspiration for all youngsters who ever got bullied or physically harassed, to stay fit and learn either Martial Arts or some physical techniques of self-protection. Just so you remember, YOU are your best safety-kit!

2. Rocky Series
All those who have grown up watching this series would have been inspired by the resilience and dedication of Rocky’s (Sylvester Stallone). Stallone and his portrayal of Rocky were the symbol of physical strength and stamina. Life can be as challenging as an opponent in the ring and Rocky was the one who reminded us time and again that once you give it your all, you can win. His journey from a small-time boxer to a winner of many titles to a boxing coach to a cancer survivor is motivational in many ways. Rocky Balboa showed us the importance of right training, right coach and our personal will to push and prepare our bodies for the fights we wish to fight.
