Okay, so I thought this would be a fun topic!

Boyfriend and I are texting and discussing how awesome it would be to run faster. Our inspiration? Zombieland lol. After watching Zombieland, we sort of looked at each other and started making jokes about "what if we need to run that fast in any life situation, not only zombies" and we realized that we both need to build up a lot of stamina.

So, what movies/films/shows/programs inspire you to just work out?
Are there any scenes in particular that you would recommend for those of us that want to stay motivated? :)

Please share and have fun :)

    The Charlie's Angels movies. They just put me in a feisty, *kitten*-kicking mood in general, and I love that.

    The new Wolverine Origins.

    Nice! I can't believe I haven't thought of that one!

    For me, anything actiony-sci fi which involves very little thinking (or basic dialogue) and lots of running or driving fast: Resident Evil, Matrix, Expendables, Batman, Starship Troopers, Fifth Element, Star Trek, Aliens, Lockout, Battle LA, Dredd, etc, etc.

    Wow, just creeped your profile. You do not look your age, you look like you can kick some serious butt (and totally look 25, btw).

    Any and every zombie show/movie. Walking Dead in particular because it's more realistic, but still --- you gotta haul *kitten* at times and if you are in bad shape that's just not gonna go so well. Although, in zombie apocalypse, I imagine that the people who survive will lose weight pretty quick between not having food and having to move more than usual -- so maybe the extra weight you carry in is sort of like a stuck on survival pack? lmao. :laugh:

    Chariots of Fire
    Rocky movies
    Flashdance
    Forrest Gump

    Zombieland does make you think about this stuff!
  • Yeah I think probably Zombieland! :P It is important to be able to outrun a zombie :)

    As for others probably Run Fatboy Run. I think Simon Pegg is fantastic!
