5 Pro Tips To Stick To The Beginner Bootcamp Challenge

November 17, 2015 3 min read

There are few things in life more daunting than being a 'beginner' at something. No one likes looking like they don't know what they are doing! But you should never let this stand in your way. Everyone has to start somewhere. Our Beginner Bootcamp Challenge is designed with the beginner in mind but even so, it can be hard to stay motivated and on track. The workout is challenging and you will want to quit. But when you feel that way, think of these pro tips that will help you keep your head in the game:

1. Focus on behavior change not achieving outcomes

Everything in our culture prompts us to want results right away. We always seem to be looking for an instant solution but bringing this belief into your fitness routine is setting yourself up for failure. The fact is, if you want to make a body transformation, it will take time. When you see people getting dramatic results within months, remember, they are the exception to the rule. AND, they often gain everything back because things happened so rapidly that they failed to make true lifestyle changes. Instead of focusing on changing your body, focus on changing your behaviours. Instead of thinking "I'd like to lose 50 pounds," try "I will do my daily BodyRock workouts and find something fun and active to do on my rest days." This way, you can celebrate your achievements every single day!

2. Change one thing at a time

We all lead very busy lives. Most of us are juggling enough as it is, there is no need to add the pressure of altering your ENTIRE existence in one go. Do one thing at a time. Start by committing to your workouts. Once you do this, you will be able to make changes to your diet. But even then, don't feel like you have to do it all at once. If you make small changes over time, you will notice you've created sustainable habits. FEATURED-abs

3. Accountability Accountability Accountability

If you take on these lifestyle changes by yourself, you are likely to fail. Grab a pal and do it together. It is a lot more fun that way and a lot harder to get away with making excuses if someone else is holding your feet to the fire! If you don't have anyone willing to work out with you, at least find someone who is willing to help you stick to your goals. Never underestimate the power of support.

4. Find your ‘Why’

Find your real motivation. To be successful, it has to be deeper than your appearance. Looking great is a wonderful side effect of being fit but it can't be your sole purpose. Find your 'real' reason. Would you like to live longer and enjoy yourself a little more? Would you like to be healthy? When you're done soul-searching and have found your inspirational "why," write it down. Put it up somewhere in your home where you can and will see it each and everyday. Make it your mantra.

5. Whatever you do, enjoy it

Have fun. Isn't that the key to everything in life? Following the Beginner Bootcamp workouts is like kicking it with your bud in your living room for 10-12 minutes at a time. It is nothing, really. Put on some killer tunes during your warm ups, enjoy this time you are taking for you and you alone. If you've got a workout pal, push each other and most importantly, laugh. Some of the moves can be awkward and difficult at first, it is okay to laugh at yourself. And on your rest days, you're free to really create something enjoyable. Hike, swim, ski, dance. Whatever it is you enjoy, do it. So, who's ready? Feeling like packing it all in is natural but it doesn't have to be your default! Being consistent is the only way to change your life!

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
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.
