7 Ways To Prevent People's Resolutions From Ruining Your Workout

January 14, 2016 2 min read

You see all types of people at the gym. You see the full fitness buffs, you see the social butterflies, you see the cardio addicts or iron-pumping, body building sorts. You see people trying to improve their lives. These attempts at self improvement are truly remarkable and admirable but sometimes the place can get a little crowded. This crowding is never more obvious than in the month of January. People make their New Year's resolutions to finally get fit and healthy and flock to their nearest fitness center. This influx of people can make it difficult for you to focus on your own workout. If you are finding it hard to shift into beast mode with so many people wandering around, we've got some tips to help you block it all out!

1. Keep your headphones in

Headphones are a great tool when it comes to avoiding people. People are going to be far less likely to try to speak to you or interrupt what you are doing if they think you are deeply engaged in your tunes and your workout.

2. Avoid eye contact at all costs

Mirrors are everywhere in the gym. This can make it easy to accidentally make eye contact. Avoid day dreaming or scanning the gym. Keep your head down and focus on you.

3. Sweat profusely

It may not look so cute but working yourself into a real, dripping sweat can be useful when it comes to avoiding people. A glistening sweat is s*xy, but if you are dripping, people are probably going to just avoid you. [bctt tweet="7 Ways To Prevent People's Resolutions From Ruining Your Workout"] inpost

4. Look agitated

If you don't want to talk to people, look unapproachable. No one wants to talk to someone who is obviously annoyed, agitated or frustrated. Friendly looking people end up in conversations that sidetrack workouts.

5. Master the wave

Sometimes when you are at the gym you will see someone that it would be rude to ignore. Give this person a wave, a little smile and a nod. This indicates that you've seen him or her but have no intention of engaging in a long, drawn out conversation.

6. Avoid peak times

The gym is most crowded around 5:30 pm. Everyone stops in on their way home from work. Try to hit the gym during slow hours like in the morning or afternoon. Fewer people at the gym means fewer people you'll have to avoid.

7. Look disheveled

So many women look adorable at the gym. They have the cutest tops and awesome, brightly coloured shoes. They look gorgeous and while you may be tempted to emulate the look, it won't help you avoid people. Look like you've just rolled out of bed and we can promise that people will find you a little frightening and stay away. How do you avoid unnecessary conversations in the gym?

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.
