Fitness Room Artwork

I have a fitness room update to show you.  One that adds a pop of color and motivational spirit to the room. It is making me smile!  If you are unfamiliar with how I carved out a space in my home so that I could work out in a bright and happy area instead of my basement, you can read it here: Dream Vision of My Fitness Room.

I wanted the space to be a clutter-free zone with lots of light.  I painted the walls and trim white, removed the carpet, and painted the subfloor.


Last week I added wall art in the form of 5 canvas prints that spell out “Move It Or Lose It!  Fitness room artwork that motivates!   I ordered them from Tiny  I am hoping the cheery fonts and colors will keep me motivated to work out on a daily basis.

I created each word for the motivational saying in Photoshop and then uploaded them to the Tiny Prints site. I have included a free printable .pdf to download for each word below.

What I like best about the canvases is they are truly personal – making the room truly unique to me.

How to Hang Canvas Print Art


I measured the wall to find the center and placed the “or” canvas at that center point. I then spaced the other canvases on either side, 4-1/2″ apart from each other.


Each print comes with a sawtooth style hook for easy hanging. I used a bubble level to make sure I had each canvas straight.  In less than 10 minutes I had myself a motivational wall.


The dimensions of the canvases adds to the simple clutter-free style I want in the room.  Effective decor that makes an impact.


I ordered the canvas art in 3 different sizes to add more interest along the wall.

Move and lose: 20″ x 16″

It and it!: 10″ x 14″

Or: 12″ x 12″


I chose the colors of the fonts to go with the stripes on the ceiling fan. The fan is from the previous decor. I was going to paint the blades white, but after second thought I decided to keep them since they add a positive vibe to the room.

Thanks to TinyPrints – my new art canvases are now adding to that vibe.

  2. I love your fitness room decor! Especiallythe or frame caught my eye. Would you tell me what font you used?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Mona – The font I used for the word “or” is the free version of Handwriting Draft.

  18. Mary Alice says:

    I would order a canvass print.
    I will save this page for future inspiration. I love the Move it or lose it! prints! In a couple years, all the little birds will have left the nest and I should be able to have an exercise room and that phrase is perfect. We watched my father-in-law not move when he could (he chose an extremely sedentary lifestyle) and in the end, he did lose it – he had almost no mobility and that was just so sad to watch. I want to make sure that I keep moving!!

  19. I am going to make a canvas print of our Goldendoodle! Love the fitness room!

  25. I’ve been dying to order one of their ipad cases from the Tiny Prints website!

  26. I’d totally personalize a phone case for my dad. He’s a personal trainer and I HAVE to upgrade his case with some cool, funky, muscle-y designs!

  27. So cute! I think I would choose the monogram on a throw, although it would be hard to not make it my own ;)

  28. Nancy Carr says:

    I would get a canvas print of my dogs. Also love your fitness room and the cute fan blades, too. Blessings

  43. Canvas print, for sure. Thanks for hosting this giveaway and for the opportunity to win!

  44. Joanne B. says:

    Hi Diane- what a great idea! Looks sharp for sure! Would you mind sharing the font you used to create the word “or” ? Love that! Lately I am obsessing over typography and fonts and have some ideas of my own stirring and this one appeals to me especially. Thanks in advance!

  45. I would love to win the TinyPrints credit! My son was married in August and I would love to create something special for his bride and him.

  46. Stephanie Pizzolatto says:

    I would pick a canvas print of my “new” family. We were recently at a couples home who had just gotten remarried and my husband noticed their “new” blended family picture in the foyer. He requested we get one of our “new” family to display in our home. I put it on my “to-do” list but now I am adding it to my “win-it” list as well!

  47. Stephanie Pizzolatto says:

    I would pick a canvas print of me, my new husband and all of my children from my wedding. My husband recently saw a couple who just got married had their “new” family photo in their entryway and asked if we could get one. It is on my to-do list and now my “win-it” list!

  48. Lisa Kissner Cooper says:

    The Herringbone Throw blankets look so inviting!!!

  49. either xmas cards or baptism invitations for my daughter :))

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Erin – Congratulations! You won the $100 Tiny Prints giveaway I has on my blog this past week. Please reply to this email and I will have the credit sent to you via email.

  50. LOVE this! You actually just helped me decide what will hang on the room divider I’m making out of pallets for our basement! The canvas is lightweiight and would be the perfect type of photo to hang on either side, probably humorous messages for guests, something to make them feel at home. The throw would also be excellent for the basement sofa or daybed. Thank you for the terrific motivational signs. I am going to USE these! Move it OR lose it, i.e., strength, flexibility, mental sharpness, and energy. Could also say, move it AND lose it, i.e., flabby behind, roll around the middle, bulges protruding out from under my bra strap. ;) It’s a WIN WIN and I love, love love it – thank you! (My husband said your blog is the cheapest therapy there is, that he notices I am routinely energized and my creativity sparked after I’ve read your posts. He’s absolutely right.)

  51. Christina Rodriguez says:

    I love your blue floor! I happen to be on a pale blue or aqua kick right now. I am painting my office corner aqua with white trim. Can’t wait for it to be done! If I were to order from tinyprints, I guess it would be similar to your saying only I would get my business name: Diva by Design. Seeing it up on the wall would be extra motivation to keep going!

  52. Swati Aggrawal says:

    Since my now 14 moths old boy was born, i had been wanting to get a picture of him enlarged and hang in has room. But such things can get expensive and we can’t afford it right now since I lost my job. So if I win this giveaway, I would get a large print of my son’s picture.

  53. Allison T says:

    I would use this to decorate my new home’s exercise room (love what you’ve done!) or mudroom!

  54. While I love the workout room inspiration, I would use it to print my grandmother’s favorite old recipes on fabric to make dish towels for my kids and cousins. She was born in 1898 and really knew how to cook. Even the measurements aren’t as precise as we use now, but it would remind everyone just how primitive cooking/baking was. I have her original cookbook in her writing. I spent the most time with her, learning to cook, sew and crochet, so I got it when she passed away. I think it would be the perfect way to preserve and share her love one more time!

  55. Alice Montgomery says:

    I have been giving my husband the letter “M” in various and sundry forms for 20 years as part of an ongoing joke. I would love to give him a pillow with a large graphic M for Christmas!

  56. I started studying photography this year and would love to see some of my photos on canvas!! I would definitely order canvas prints!!!!

  57. I would love the mounted prints. I just came back from a trip to South Lake Tahoe and took some beautiful shots that would look great on those!

  58. Robin Stephens says:

    I loved the forever dots pillow w/ one initial. I’d have enough to order two!

  59. Beth of designPOST interiors says:

    Everyone needs something bright and pretty to look at during a workout!! Love these prints!

  60. Christina in Cleveland says:

    Oh this would be WONDERFUL for holiday present(s). What a GREAT idea!! Thanks!!

  61. I don’t have a single photo of all 4 of my girls. I would get one taken and have a lovely “Tiny Print” made for pride of place in my home.

  62. Hi Diane! I would love to get a canvas print for our new home! I love your motivating message, however, it should say move it AND lose it!!! Keep up the great work!

  63. I would get prints made of my grandchildren, although I have a nice cd of floral pictures that make great canvases also!
    Thanks for the ideas!

  64. I like the Antler Monogram personal stationery

  65. Love your canvases. i have been wanting a new throw blanket for my couch and Tinyprints’ herringbone thrown is absolutely beautiful.

  66. Theresa Stewart says:

    I would order the note cards and stationery from the tiny prints “Look Whoot” collection. That is the cutest thing in the world! A canvas with that picture on it would be adorable for my vintage bedroom also!

  67. I’d love some canvas prints of family photos to add to my gallery wall! Thx for giveaway and inspiration!

  68. Love your fitness room décor – love the stripes on the fan blades.
    Oh – so many pictures to choose from to order canvas art for my home – thanks for the chance to win.

  69. Catherine says:

    I would probably get a photo book to document our upcoming Disney trip.

  70. Melissa Leach says:

    I would get a self inking stamp! Thank you!

  71. Amanda G. says:

    Wall canvases with our wedding photos for our first home! :)

  72. Marianne A. says:

    a photo canvas of my daughters. I have the photo all picked out!

  73. I, like you, sometimes need motivation (particularly for all the sewing projects I have lined up), so wall canvases in my sewing room would help with a cheerful nudge! What fun!

  74. I’d get the Streaming Shapes : Sea Blue Personal Stationery, personalized mugs, and planners.

  75. I would love to do some Christmas things that I could use on pallets for rustic signs. I just love their things!

  76. I have a few spaces that are naked and ugly right now. They would be pretty and fun with a canvas or two! Great giveaway.

  77. Fonda Rush says:

    I would love to get a photo of my brother, his wife, their barn and tire house and put it on a 14 x 10 canvas so they can use it as decor in their tire house.

  78. I’ve been eyeing the Forever Dot pillows since you posted yours. Love those things!

    Thanks for the opportunity – my fingers are crossed!
