5 Of The Worst People You'll See At The Gym In The New Year (Photos)

January 06, 2016 2 min read

January has arrived. The month when everyone attempts to turn over a new leaf, digs out their workout gear and tries, yet again, to adopt a serious workout routine. For people who already hit the gym on the regular, this month can feel like hell. Sure, everyone has to start somewhere but the people who have no idea what they are doing can be distracting as all get out. While it is wonderful that people have had at least enough motivation to leave the house and give it a go, they can still be frustrating to deal with. Here is a look at some of the worst people who are about to start hogging your favourite equipment:

The People Who Don’t Own Workout Clothes

pgzUjB7l So, working out in your everyday clothes is not technically a problem. It is sort of the same as people who go swimming in their t-shirts. It isn't 'wrong,' but people will still think you are bizarre. Maybe some people are more comfortable in their jeans at the gym and while comfort is key, we still have to ask, jeans? Seriously, jeans?

The People Who Are Too Into Workout Clothes

9dXIvrtl For most people, you grab your workout gear and go. Is it clean? Yes? Good to go. But, not everyone thinks that way. There are lots of people who appear to spend more time putting together their outfit than they actually do working out. If you are 'lucky' enough, you will see that special person who believes it is essential to wear a helmet on a stationary bike.

The Phoneatics

4HaOKl We've all been guilty of checking our phone at the gym. You never know who is trying to get in contact. You may want to take a moment and sit down on one of the benches and text away but it is absolutely crucial that you remember WHAT THOSE BENCHES ARE FOR. They are designed for people attempting to lift heavy weights! If you are only interested in working out your thumbs, do so standing up, please and thank you.

The Selfie Models

K1g14lDl Unlike the phoneatics, these people are relatively harmless. Those folks are obsessed with finding the right shot. The right lighting, the right angle to make it look like they've made more progress than they have.

The Work-Out Entrepreneurs

Tzjsol Some of the most frightening people are those who think they know what they are doing when they actually have no clue. These are the sorts of people who throw the kettlebell in the air and attempt to catch it. These people are not only irritating but are a total danger to themselves! When you spy these people, workout as far away from them as possible! There is an upside here and it is important that you remember it. By the third week of January, the majority of these people will have returned to their sofas and the gym will once again be your happy place! Which January gym behaviours irritate you the most?

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 1-2 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 (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.

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.
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.
