3 Simple Steps to Becoming a Fit Mommy

February 20, 2015 2 min read

Fit mommies are popping up everywhere, it seems. Mostly, it is the criticisms that we hear regarding them and the fact that they are setting "unrealistic expectations" to some than the goodness of what they do. Regardless, becoming a fit mommy seems to be on a lot of ladies' wish lists and I am excited to tell you that you can be one, too! When I gave birth almost one year ago to my beautiful baby boy, I made it a point to keep fit during pregnancy. I wanted to instill those healthy core values in my family before my son even arrived. Becoming a mother has made my body so much better than it was before. I feel sexy and strong, knowing what I am capable of. Downloads9 Left: 2010 pre-baby, Right: 2014 10 months post-partum I had dropped 45lbs prior to pregnancy and continued 5 day a week workouts all throughout my pregnancy and up until the day that I gave birth. I actually ran 3 miles the day I went into labor, on my due date. Apparently, I was in labor the whole day and didn't know it. #firstpreggoproblems DSC_0085 Here's how to become a fit mommy in 3 simple steps! 1. Give birth. 2. Workout 3. Eat clean. That's it! I know what you are thinking. "You're joking, right?"  Being a fit mom does not mean you have to have a six pack, toned legs, or a nice, round butt. It does not mean that you have to hang out at the gym for 3 hours everyday, posting selfies. It does not mean you have to compete in bikini comp. It does not mean that you have to be a size 2 or rock skinny jeans. It does not mean you go without slipping up on your diet here or there. Most of all, it does not mean that you are flawless. Being a fit mom does mean that you have given birth at some point in your life and are steadily making strives to lead and live a healthier life. It doesmean that you are working on a lifestyle change by steadily changing your eating habits and teaching your children to do the same. It does mean that you are making a point to get up and out of the house to grab a few minutes of sunshine and to move your body. It does mean that you are mentally well and doing more of what makes you happy. Becoming a "fit mommy" or a fit person, in general, isn't easy. When you add kids and a new lifestyle to the mix, it SURELY does not get any easier than before. IMG_8288.CR2 Are you expecting your litte one or already are a mommy?

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.
