fortior mens fortiorque corpus
Explanation:
Hi Josh,

if you really mean "stronger mind and stronger body", this is the Latin translation.

Fortior: Stronger
Mens: Mind
Fortiorque: And Stronger
Corpus: Body

The -que suffix gives it a nice rythm for a mantra!

Strong accents are marked with an X

mens sana in corpore sano


Explanation:
This is a well known latin proverb but it means "healthy mind in healthy body" not "stronger mind in stronger body".If this is a paraphrase of the latin proverb then my translation is obviously wrong.
