12 Stages Of A Fitness Class Obsession

October 16, 2015 2 min read

Fitness trends are real, and they have been around for ages. These days, they are taking the form of fitness classes like SoulCycle and Pure Barre. If you are involved in one of these fitness classes, your love is real. Your love is deep. Unfortunately, it may also be draining your bank account. But maybe it is worth it to you. Hard to say. But one thing is clear, fitness classes have become something of an obsession for many people. Here are the 12 stages of a fitness class obsession: 1. Discovery: Oh, hey! That's a cool shirt. Wait, that's a SoulCycle shirt. A friend of my cousin's girlfriend does SoulCycle and she's super hot. 2. Intrigue: Maybe I will just check out the website. Can't hurt, right? 3. Contemplation: I could afford this. I will eat rice for a month, make my coffee at home and skip any and all happy hour invites. That's reasonable. It will be worth it.   4. Doubt: Hmmm. I, too, could have a killer body if I had a killer bank account. But instead, I have my bank account. Maybe I will just buy the t-shirt online. No one will know... 5. Reevaluation: A price tag cannot be put on my health. I make monetary commitments to my wardrobe and my social life, why not my fitness? This class can help me get my sh*t together!   6. Eager Beginnings: It feels great to be filling out these contact forms! I can only imagine how much better I will be AFTER I take the class. 7. Ego Inflation: Look at all those people in line at the drive thru! Peasants. I'm a fitness person now. I laugh at your fast food! 8. Sheer, Utter Pain: How is it possible that anyone is this excited to ride a stationary bike at 5:30am? I can barely walk to the car. What good is being fit, if I can't even stand up? 9. A Dash of Skepticism: Being healthy ain't cheap. Why is green juice so damn expensive?   10. Silent Panic: Uh-oh! I can't afford the green juice! I've signed my entire financial future over for three months of SoulCycle! What the hell was I thinking? 11. Calm After The Storm: Okay, so I won't be eating for the rest of the month in order to cover this cancellation fee, but lesson learned!   12. Discovery: Wait, is that a Pure Barre shirt?

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

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
