Ronda Rousey Doesn't Just Win In The Octagon, She Wins In Life

August 05, 2015 2 min read

Ronda Rousey dominates the UFC Women's Bantam Weight division. She is reigning champion and was recently named Fighter Of The Year at the ESPY awards. She is gritty, she is determined, she is honest. She has broken out in a male dominated scene. When walking into a fight she thinks about how much she deserves the win. "I've worked harder than any of these girls possibly could in their entire lives and I've sacrificed more than they ever could," she said. Although a knee jerk reaction may be to see her attitude as arrogant, Rousey sees it differently. "Why is self confidence arrogant? Why is self-depreciation considered modesty? I worked my a-- off to be able to have a high opinion of myself," Rousey said. "It took a long time and many, many years, and I'm never going to tell -- let anyone tell me that I should think less of myself." Although she is a bear in the ring, she says her life outside of it is much different. "There's no cuddlier, happier, little snugglebug than me right after I beat somebody up," Rousey said. "And I'm not this callous, hard, impervious superwoman, you know. I'm a girl who fights. And some days I'm a fighter, and some days I just feel like a little girl." Rousey may be on top now but she is no stranger to adversity. When she was just 8 year old, her father committed suicide. "It really drilled into my head that everything is fleeting. And, yeah, I'm undefeated and the best in the world and all these great things are going on, but I could lose it at any second," she said. She's also been driven by her own 'failures.' In 2008, Rousey became the first U.S. woman to medal at the Olympics in Judo. But she won the bronze and that made her miserable. "I really felt like all of my efforts were a waste, because what did it really do for me? If you're sitting with an Olympic medal in the backseat of your car and that's where you're sleeping tonight it really makes you think about if you did the right thing or not," she said. She was homeless and working as a bartender in Los Angeles. Now, with all of that behind her, her main focus is fighting. "I don't enjoy inflicting pain on people at all, but I enjoy being in a high-pressure, high-stakes situation and having an opportunity to be brilliant," she said. Rousey is living proof that if you are determined to succeed, and work to do so, you will succeed. Sometimes even beyond anything you could have ever imagined.

Confidence worth emulating or arrogance that is best to ignore? Source: Daily Mail snapchat code

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.

To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.
