About No Pain No Gain

In the 1980s aerobic exercise was all the rage and the queen of the aerobics scene was actress Jane Fonda who put her movie career on hold to show the world how to ‘feel the burn’. Jane Fonda has become an icon of aerobics and firmly told her classes the famous catchphrase ‘no pain no gain’ as they dutifully sweated into their carpets in front of the TV. Today, no pain no gain is a well-used phrase which has been adopted by athletes, exercise enthusiasts and bodybuilders. As a result there are all sorts of products to be purchased online that have borrowed the phrase including clothing, cuff links, artwork and martial arts movies.

Although it was Fonda’s use of ‘no pain no gain’ that made it such a well-used saying today, she wasn’t the first to pick up on the connections between pain and gain. In the 2nd century Rabbi Ben Hei was quoted as saying ‘the pain is the gain’. In 1650 poet Robert Herrick wrote ‘If little labour, little are our pains, Man’s fate is according to his pains.’ Benjamin Franklin wrote ‘there are no gains, without pains’ in 1758.
