10 Reasons We Love Jillian Michaels

June 26, 2014 2 min read

Jillian Michaels, now 40, recently opened up to Shape magazine about her life, making the cover of the July issue. Here are the top 10 reasons that we love Jillian Michaels:
  1. Her transformation story. After her parents divorce she gained a lot of weight and was often bullied. When her mother signed her up for martial arts classes, Jillian realized that others will respect you only when you respect yourself, and she started her long journey to overcome her weight issues as well as her self-esteem problems.
  2. Her variety when it comes to workouts: boxing, yoga, pull-ups, and any and all plank variations you can find. This woman does it all.
  3. Her refreshing take on aging. She thinks she looks even better now at age 40 than she did in her 20s, which is the most thrilling thing to hear in this youth-obsessed society.
  4. She has two kids, daughter Lukensia (4) and son Pheonix (2) with partner Heidi Rhoades. Michaels told Shape, “my best reason for having strong arms is because I love to pick up my kids” – hello hot mama!
jillianmichaels4 5. Her sexual orientation, and longtime relationship with Heidi Rhoades hasn’t been an “issue” or a “hot topic.” It’s just another part of her life, and it’s not open to debate. 6. Her motivation and drive which pushes not only the The Biggest Loser contestants to get their absolute fittest, but was put to work on her Maximize Your Life Tour, which was all about harnessing your potential and kick-starting your goals. 7. Her impressive fitness empire; she opened her own gym when she was only 28, she had her own reality show in 2010 called Losing It With Jillian, and this is the 9th season of The Biggest Loser. 8. Her down to earth “you can’t have it all” outlook. Her butt is still her problem area, but she’s happy with being healthy, and doesn’t stress over it. 9. The fact that she treats herself; tweeting a picture of a half empty bottle of red wine with the caption “after weeks of sobriety for my @shapemagazine cover, this may have just happened” jilliantwitter3 10. Really just her twitter feed in general, it’s pretty motivational, oftentimes hilarious, and soooo true. jilliantwitter2

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.

Clothing

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.
