Workout Motivation: 4 Strange Tips to Get Yourself Going

August 07, 2015 2 min read

If you're not the type of person to spring out of bed at the sound of your alarm, you're not alone. Not everyone begins their day enthusiastically singing and dancing as they get up and get going. And if you're reason for waking up is a workout, you're even more likely to hit the snooze button several more times. After work? You're tired and starving. You go over the pros and cons of driving right past the gym on your way home. It's exhausting trying to motivate yourself to get into gear! But, with these four out-of-the-box tips for workout motivation, you may no longer need to push yourself to get into motion.

1. Think about being naked ... or close to it.

You want to look your best, right? What about in a bikini or a barely there dress? Even better yet, for your significant other. For Tiny Dee from Brooklyn, NY, it's her biggest motivator. "Ever since I became a burlesque dancer, I have a different kind of inspiration to stay fit: getting almost naked in front of thousands of people on stage."

2. Hold your wine hostage.

Your gym is just around the corner, but work has been hard today, and you can most definitely gulp down a glass of the good stuff. Make the wine your gift for post-workout indulgence. "Our group runs sometimes end with a trip to a nearby watering hole for adult beverages, which is always great motivation," says Carrie Stevens, JackRabbit Sports social media manager.

3. Foresee embarrassing photos of yourself filling up people's Facebook feeds.

Untag. Untag. DELETE. You can't be on social media looking like ... that! Aren't you sick of worrying about what images are popping up of yourself on Facebook yet? "Some clients have had close friends keep embarrassing 'before' pictures of them with instructions to release the picture on social media if they don't stick with their workout plans…medieval!" says David Jack, who is a performance specialist and founder of the activLAB at the Arizona Grand Resort in Phoenix.

4. Bribe yourself.

You've been wanting those vibrant new yoga pants hanging up in your favorite studio, and that gorgeous skin-tight dress from the boutique around the corner. "One of my clients ordered a bunch of dresses and shoes for the summer and had them delivered to the gym instead of her home, so she had an incentive to work out," says Minna Ajo, a personal trainer at New York City's Crunch Union Square. "I'd give her one item every time a goal was met. A pair of heels she couldn't wait to wear motivated her to drop 10 pounds!" What tips can you add to this list to help others motivate themselves to work out? It doesn't matter how you motivate yourself to workout if you don't have a solid routine to turn to.

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.
