Slow And Steady Wins: 4 Reasons To Be Patient With Fitness Results

April 29, 2015 2 min read

Patience is a virtue. But in today's world of overnight fixes and products packaged with claims of providing a perfect body with minimal work, it is easy to forget how much time and effort goes into those physiques we aspire to. Take it easy on yourself. Know that each step you take gets you closer to your goal. Staying persistent can be difficult when your results don't appear immediately. Here are 4 things to keep in mind:

1. Don’t obsess over the how or when. Instead, focus on your “why.

At the beginning, your energy will be high and your adrenaline is powering your actions. When the routine of everyday life starts to creep back in, and it will, remember why you started the journey in the first place. Remember how amazing you will look and feel. Remember how wonderful it will feel to accomplish your goals. Write it down somewhere you can see it every day. Get clear on the 'why' and nothing will stop you. hC2fFqkmT8Rtax1uaKva57GyQni-VOaldg9mss_F_Rw

2. Keep an open mind

Think of fitness as a "choose your own adventure" where the rules are yours to make. Long term success requires you to have a routine that fits your lifestyle. Don't be afraid to try various eating or exercise strategies until you find one that is effortless to you. weYNPxtCXBQfMSlziqvSwu9EHX3xohA5mPW260lz06Q

3. Give doubt the cold shoulder and run away from the haters

Nothing can defeat your goals like negativity and negative people. If people in your life are knocking down your goals or getting in the way of your aspirations, run away! We are already filled with enough doubt (especially when we are new to something or just starting out) so a little bit more is definitely not what we need. Your success and dreams are more important that anyone else's opinion. Remove these negative people from your life as much as is necessary, put your head down and get back to work. _wAXT1YsuKE7fcF80n4DnV2sELhGPebxgh0O30DG40s

4. Stay in your lane

The more connected you are to your vision, the more likely you will be to show up. Sometimes a goal is not attainable. Not because of your efforts but because it isn't in line with who you are. If you can't work out 5 days a week, stop telling yourself you can, failing to and then feeling guilty. Cut back to 3 times. Remember, you make the rules. If you stay focused, you'll get there. Do you have a hard time with patience? What are the things you do to combat it?

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.
