7 Ways To Get Psyched Up For A Killer Workout!

October 08, 2015 2 min read

Anyone can tell you that in order to continue to see results, you must give it your best effort, every time. Sure, when you first get started, anything you do brings results but the longer you do it, the harder you have to push yourself. Not only does this take dedication and discipline, it also takes motivation. And we don't have to tell you, sometimes, motivation is hard to come by. Here are 7 ways you can get yourself prepared, and excited, before you hit that workout!

1. Use Visualization

One of the best ways to rev yourself mentally for an intense workout is to visualize yourself doing it before you begin. Sit, quietly with your eyes closed, for 10-15 minutes and think about what you will want to accomplish and how good it will feel. Think about making those heavy weights light as a feather. Think about how your body will respond and how you will get that lean muscle and tone you've been working for.

2. Listen To Music

Science has proved that listening to music that 'moves you' can increase strength and intensity when training. While driving to the gym pump those jams. Turn it up loud and make sure you can feel the excitement building in every inch of your body.

3. Watch Something That Will Pump You Up

Whenever you need to get that intensity and aggression level amped up, watch something to get you hyped. Think Rocky or Rudy or 300. Something that demonstrates people displaying feats of strength and succeeding. It will pump you up faster than anything you can buy!

4. Look At Pictures Of People You Admire

We all want to look a little more like someone. Although your workout needs to be tailored to what will bring out the best in your body, there is nothing wrong with trying to mold yourself into looking a little more like your fitness hero. Taking a close look at these heroes before a workout can help you get your head in it.

5. Use An Effective Pre-Workout

Most people have to train in the mornings before work or later in the evening when your day is done. This isn't always the easiest thing because, well, life gets in the way. A pre-workout supplement might help you through. Some won't do much for you but others can give you physical and emotional energy. Research the products available and see which one might be best for you.

6. Read Inspirational Quotes

The right words can be incredibly powerful when you need motivation to go to the gym. A simple Google search of 'inspirational quotes' can be just the thing to get your butt in gear, out the door and killing that workout!

7. Get Psyched With A Training Partner

The number one job of a good training partner is to pick you up and get you psyched when you are dragging your heels. Sit with your partner before the workout and remind each other why you are there, what your goals are and how much to love to go max effort, then hit it! How do you get yourself psyched up for an intense workout? Source: Muscle & Fitness

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.


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.
