How To Push Yourself During A Workout

February 11, 2016 2 min read

Some days, you just don't feel like you've got it in you. You get half way through a workout and you're ready to quit. Maybe you're tired, maybe you're bored. No matter the reason, you  do have the ability to dig deep and power through the rest of the workout -- even if you don't realize it! inpost When you need to give yourself a little (or big) push and find that extra motivation, try one of these tips:

1. Split up the time.

It doesn't matter what sort of workout you are doing, break it down into manageable chunks. If today is your cardio day and you are feeling totally wiped out by the fact that you have 30 minutes left, turn it into 3, 10 minute chunks. Each time you cross a 10 minute threshold, you'll feel mentally stronger and like you've  accomplished something. [bctt tweet="How To Push Yourself During A Workout"] inpost2

2. Don't watch the timer.

It can be tempting to keep an eye on how much time you have left but when you are feeling unmotivated, this can be a disaster. Watching your timer distracts you from what you are doing and only makes time feel like it is slowing down. Ignore it until you hear the signal!

3. Repeat a motivational phrase.

When you want to give up, consider your true motivations. Telling yourself you are working out so you can have a bowl of ice cream at the end isn't likely to be enough. Find a phrase that spurs you on! Repeat that phrase over and over until you are done. It sounds ridiculous but it can make all the difference in the world. Something as simple as "Don't quit!" can get the job done. inpost3 If these tips aren't enough to get you through, let us help! The BodyRock Bootcamp workouts can keep you energized.

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 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.
