Don't Hold Back

'Feel the tempest storming, but don't let fear hold you back'

 Today's post is about holding back or notholding back.

  So Thursday after noon I got the news that an old friend (more of an acquaintance but we hung out socially several times)  had been killed in a car accident. I couldn't believe it! He was killed by an oil tanker truck that exploded and set fire to the vehicle, which burned for 5 hours! He was such a nice, genuine, and caring person and did not deserve to go out like that. After reading all the comments his friends and family were leaving on his Facebook page, I couldn't help but get teary eyed. To see all of these people expressing their feelings for him and how terribly he will be missed was heartbreaking! I realize that life is too short and that anything can happen at anytime. Sometimes we don't always say the nicest things to people or tell them how much we appreciate them as often as we should. Sometimes we don't realize how much we have until it's gone. This could be anything in our lives, not just people! It could be our health. Maybe you're a smoker, have a disease, or some kind of disorder and you really learned to  appreciate your health and life a little more because of those conditions and unhealthy habits.  Maybe you've lost a loved one and wish you would have said that one thing to them that you never had the courage to say. Maybe you've gone through some sort of trauma and your inner strength has been pushed to the limits! We all have difficulties in life that we face and battle with. So whether it be your health goals, life goals, fitness goals, or something as simple as saying 'I love you' to someone. I don't think you should hold back. I think that we only get one chance to live and sometimes, even if the odds are against you taking a chance and a risk is worth it! Don't let fear of the unknown hold you back. If you think or feel something, say it. If you love someone, tell them. If you have a fitness goal or any other goal you want to achieve, go for it and give it your all! Be bold and be daring. Stepping outside of your comfort zone will only help you to learn and grow. I believe that even in the most tremendous of struggles that there is beauty on the other side of it.

Shipping & Delivery
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.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

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
