13 Tips For Fitting In Fitness To Your Busy Life

May 29, 2014 2 min read

This is based off a few differentblogs, all focused on providing that busy go-getter with an attainable workout routine.   1. Choose an activity you enjoy – you are much more likely to exercise if you legitimately enjoy it. Consider your workout like a mani-pedi, it’s a treat, enjoy! 2. Set your alarm early – if you wake up early, you can get a workout out of the way first thing in the morning so it won’t be looming over your head for the rest of the day. fittinginfitnesswakeup 3. Lunch break workout – really make the best of that 60-minute lunch, even if you can’t get to the gym then you could go for a short walk or at least do some squats. 4. Work out at work – sit on a stability ball, do some tricep dips at your desk, or keep some free weights in a drawer for any lengthy calls you have to make. fittinginfitnessworkout-at-work 5. Stair climbs – take the stairs instead of the escalator or elevator, and power up your speed a bit each day. 6. Schedule workouts – Fitting the gym into your schedule is much easier if you actually block off the time. Make it like a dentist appointment or a PTA meeting, if it’s in your calendar you’ll be less likely to blow off a trip to the gym. fittinginfitness 7. Make it a date – gym buddies are fun, and the gym can be a regular part of your social life. Also, there’s just something about venting about your day while you’re on the treadmill that just makes you go harder, is that just me? 8. Take exercise on the go – running, walking, and biking are all great ways to commute to work, your mode of transportation is now a workout.

The blog I read suggested doing squats or lunges, but if you feel embarrassed doing those in public, I often go with the more subtle calf raises, it just makes you look impatient. 10. Turn chores into exercise – running up and down the stairs with a laundry basket is both a cardio and weight work out. See how fast you can get chores done, or just dance party your way through them. fittinginfitnessworking-out-on-the-weekend 11. TV Workouts – these are one of my favourite things, especially for those light comedic shows, and you’re in luck because the BodyRock team has quite a few fun ones. Be a couch potato no-more, and sweat it to your favourite programming. 12. Multitask exercises – or multitask in general, do some bicep curls, read a report, or answer emails while you’re walking on the treadmill. 13. And of course… HIIT it with us! High intensity interval training is great for those with a busy life. Maximum effort + minimum time = more bang for your buck.

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

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.
