6 Tricks To Keep Yourself Motivated!

January 31, 2017 4 min read

If you feel like the excitement (and motivation) that comes with a new workout regime has all but abandoned you, you aren't alone. It's easy to start a program full of big resolutions for how you will change your life. It's also, unfortunately, far more difficult to stick to these plans and to push yourself through the ups and downs that comes with changing your lifestyle. But, don't give up on your plans just yet. There are a few things you can do that will help you keep yourself motivated, focused, and headed in a healthier direction. On those days when you know you should workout but, well, the sofa is right there, or those days when you'd rather just eat the whole pizza, keep these tips in mind! https://www.instagram.com/p/BPEGeZklpiP/?taken-by=bodyrockofficial&hl=en Plan it: Think about the things you need to accomplish in your day and write down the most important. You know you're going to go to work and you know you're going to feed your children so you can potentially leave those ones off the list. If you need to find time for a workout, a yoga session, or to prep some healthy meals for the week, schedule it! Make these actions a priority in your life and pencil them into your calendar. Treat them like appointment that you cannot reschedule. Visualize it: Take 5 minutes every day and visualize yourself completing your workout. Close your eyes and imagine yourself starting your workout. Think about what you are wearing, think about how it feels, What muscles are you going to work? What moves will you try? How do you feel after? Think about your post workout high and your sense of accomplishment in getting it done. Your brain has a hard time distinguishing between reality and a well thought out visualization. So, this will trick your brain into feeling all the positive feels you get from a completed workout, helping you to feel more energized and excited to actually do it when the time comes! blog2998 Get inspired: We're human and things can happen in our lives from day to day, hour to hour. You may have started the day ready to take on the world and then, for whatever reason, your inspiration just disappears. This is where you can draw on other people for help! Whether it is tuning to one of the live workouts on the BodyRock Facebook Page  or looking at the images of other amazing BodyRockers on our Instagram page, inspiration can be found all around you. We know how much easier these things can be when you do it as part of a community and that's why when you sign up for a SweatFlix subscription, you gain access to the BodyRock INSIDER Facebook Group. This group is full of folks, from all over the world, who are fighting the same battles you are. It is an inclusive space to share with, learn from, and support one another on your journey for a healthier life. Remove distractions: Get rid of all that background "noise" and keep yourself focused. Put your phone away, turn off the television and put all your efforts into your sweat session. Make this time about you, and you alone. It isn't selfish to put yourself first so ditch the distractions, stop making excuses, and do this for you.
FREE SHIPPING: Use code JUN1 Reward yourself: Sometimes the pleasure of just achieving your goal isn't enough to keep you motivated. This is why you should find ways to reward yourself along the way. If you get through all your workouts this week, treat yourself to a massage. If you make it the month, treat yourself to new gear. It doesn't even have to be anything major, whatever might work for you, do it. Just try to avoid using food as a reward. While healthy eating can include indulgences, using food as a reward can quickly get out of hand, resulting in an over-consumption of empty calories and an undoing of all your hard work. Stop waiting: If you are always waiting for the perfect moment to start, you will simply never start. There will always be something less than ideal in every single day, look past these things and do what you can right now! Maybe you have to shuffle your routine around but you can do it! Just get started, you'll make it work! If you only have 15 minutes, that's fine! You can get in a solid workout! Head over to SweatFlix and choose from hundreds of effective workouts that won't eat up all of your time! Why not start with the core torching fourth season of The DailyHIIT? If you aren't already a SweatFlix member, it's free to try for 30 days. You've got nothing to lose, so what are you waiting for? https://vimeo.com/198088746

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 4-6 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.

Clothing

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.
