4 Ways Believing In Fate F*cks Up Your Love Life

May 21, 2015 2 min read

Fate is a strange thing. To believe in fate, especially when it comes to your romantic life, is to leave any awful lot up to chance. Most things worth having in life, that perfect job, that perfect body, are worth working toward so why do we think that our love life should be any different? Sitting back and waiting for fate to take the reins makes a mess of your relationships more than it helps them:


It makes us overanalyze our relationships.

In this case, fate sabotages your relationship before it even has the chance to really start. If you find you have to put work into your relationship, you may assume that s/he must not be 'the one.' Fate wouldn't make us have to work for it. To what extent should we have to go to make sure a relationship is running smoothly before it can be deemed unfit? Fate makes us run in circles. Over and over and over. 10276815

It prevents us from taking leaps of faith.

The cute guy or girl you see on the subway. You'd like to meet, maybe go for coffee. But if it were meant to be, s/he would approach you. But that doesn't happen. It almost never just happens. Life isn't the movies. Don't be indecisive.


It gives us tunnel vision for our careers.

This may not be an entirely bad thing but it does signal an imbalance. You spend all of your time working on you because your belief in fate tells you to not bother looking for Mr. or Mrs. Right. You're great at your job, you own your workout at the gym. You do all the things functioning members of society are supposed to do. You also let connections slip through your hands. You are so busy getting ahead at work that you've failed to see your work life balance is heavily tilted toward work. 11341142

It makes for awkward dinner conversation.

When your well meaning family asks why you haven't met anyone yet, you are never really sure how to answer. "Oh, fate hasn't brought me anyone yet" as a response only makes you sound a little neurotic. The last thing you need is that kind of teasing from your kid brother! tumblr_n30scyfmuM1tomt1co1_500 Believing in fate alone, leaves too much up to chance. Fate and chance might put people in your path but doing something about it is entirely up to you. So tomorrow, when you see that cute person on your commute, flash a smile, say good morning. Fate works a whole lot better if you help it along.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


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 with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
