30 Day Challenge: Day 1 ...and I am already tired

January 16, 2014 2 min read

Okay...I'll admit it, I chickened out. This was supposed to be a video but I got nervous and decided to write a blog post; please be gentle. Thoughts on the workout: Holy shit! Melissa killed it in this workout. Toughest 12 minutes of the day. First, let me say, Melissa is lovely. She is beautiful as she is strong. The Spiderman whatevers kicked my ass and rope pulls were torture. My favorite part was the encouragement from the film crew. I love hearing her struggle and work through the pain. It was really motivating! Thoughts on my progress: I made it through round one and my body gave out. Now before you judge me understand that my day was jammed pack from 7:00 AM - 7:30 PM. Yesterday I did spin class at 5:45 AM and after I put in a full day at the office I ran almost 4 miles. Today I ran at lunch, worked, helped my child prep for her new ballet class and then went to TRX. By the time I got home for Bodyrock I was exhausted. I started but my body was limp...what a bummer. Lesson #1 of the 30 day challenge? Don't over-do it before the challenge starts. I will catch up on day two. Food: No time today - lots of water but no breakfast because I woke late. Cup of black coffee at the office. Spoonful of  peanut butter around 10:30 when I was dragging and some almonds and cranberries before my noon run. PB & J on Dave's Killer Bread and an apple for lunch. More cranberries and almonds for snack and a chicken burrito after TRX for dinner. I know, I know, its not ideal. Its going to take a couple of days to adjust - I am afraid I have over-scheduled myself this whole week and will have to play catch up this weekend. Here are my Day 1 pictures: IMG_3703 1IMG_3701 1 Lets get real for a moment. I am turning 32 in about 6 weeks and, at 5'1, I am 200 lbs. I think when I weighed in on Saturday at my gym I was 203 (water weight after a long run?). Over the last year I have taken baby steps making fitness a integral part of my life. I've lost about 30lbs but...the time came to step it up. Strength class and committing to half marathon this year. Starting with the 30 days challenge. Lets do this.

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.
