10 Pieces of Advice That Will Change Your Perspective on Exercise

August 18, 2015 2 min read

We've all had those fitness instructors we just can't connect with. They make you do way too many sets of one exercise. They yell too much. Their music isn't your jam. And then there's the biggie: They say things that you simply cannot agree with. Though it's healthy to have different outlooks, sometimes, when you have the choice, it makes you want to run for the hills. But there's something to be said about encountering another individual, specifically an instructor, whose words put a thorn in your side instead of motivate you. It helps you to reflect on why what they said bothers you so much, and how you can use it as fuel to move onward and upward with the words you choose to speak. For one woman attending an exercise class, she was able to take something good out of the bad she was feeling. As her instructor urged her to picture how she'd look in "that dress," she realized this supposed encouragement was providing her with much more negativity, distancing her from the joy of working out. It was then that she realized she wanted to create a more positive world for her 3-year-old daughter to grow up in — using other methods to show that taking care of your body can be fun and fulfilling, and that it is not simply meant to squeeze into any piece of clothing. Here are her 10 pieces of advice she hopes to continue to communicate to her daughter as she grows: exercise advice 1. Strength equals self-sufficiency. 2. Fitness opens doors. 3. The bike is the new golf course.  4. Exercise is a lifestyle, not an event. 5. Health begets health. 6. Endorphins help you cope. 7. Working out signals hard-working. 8. If you feel beautiful, you look beautiful. 9. Nature rules. 10. Little eyes are always watching. What piece of advice have you given yourself and others to ensure that living a healthy lifestyle is seen in a positive light? Source: Wellfesto

Shipping & Delivery
We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system
