We've said it before and we'll say it again: You don't have to hate exercise. In fact, a workout that feels like torture is a workout you are destined to drop -- and fast. The people who find the most success with their fitness routine are the people who have found the fun in fitness.

These celebs have figured it out. Maybe their wise words will help convince you, too.

"It's no fun to sit down and talk about what exercise has to do with life... go drip that sweat, run until we're fatigued, to where the mind can't ponder the past or the future, well, then you've got something... It's fun to feel healthy, and it's fun to feel good."

"[Working out has] completely changed my body, my life, everything. I cannot live without it now. When you have such a good workout, it clears everything up mentally, physically, and you just have a better day."

"I like what it does for my mind. If I've had a bad day, if I'm feeling stressed out, if I'm feeling overwhelmed -- it takes it all away. It's my antidote for everything. If I feel any sort of emotional upheaval, I go for a jog and I feel better."

"When I'm working 16-hour days and I can't work out, I get angry very easily. It's because I'm missing all those good endorphins. For me, exercise equals happiness."

"[Exercising with my husband] makes it so much more fun and makes the time go by so much faster because we're encouraging each other. And my husband is ridiculously funny, so he's making jokes the whole time we're working out, and we're getting time together."

"For me, working out is a form of therapy, it's cathartic for me, it's a good stress reliever. I know that when I go to the gym I am taking care of myself and I know I’ll feel so much better afterwards."
