8 Workout Tips for Busy Moms

February 17, 2015 2 min read

Life sure doesn't slow down after you have kids and if you are a working mom, the demands of life make it feel like there aren't enough hours in the day!!  I totally get it...we just added potty training to the mix!  Been there, done that, and still doing it...but finding time to do something that you enjoy is a must!  As crazy as it sounds, I think my workouts keep me sane....how many moms can attest to that?!  If you are sick of letting the excuses pile up and are ready to make a change, here are ten tips to get you moving : 1.  If time is an issue, schedule your workout similar to the way you would any other important meeting.  Having it in writing might keep you accountable - remember bosses don't cancel, so as the boss of your workout, stick to it! 2.  As unpleasant as this may sound, wake up early (maybe while it is still dark outside) and get your workout done first thing in the morning.  It can be hard to get out of your cozy bed during the winter, but getting in this routine can really have a positive impact on your whole day!  And if the day becomes unpredictable, at least you got your workout done! 3.  Take care of yourself first.  You are not selfish for wanting to start exercising.  Staying fit and healthy is important and has a positive influence on your little ones. 4.  Nap time is you time.  If you are a stay at home mom, nap time is something to look forward to, because you tend to be able to get a lot more done while your little one counts sheep.  Take advantage of this - there are so many great workouts to be done in the comfort of your own home! 5.  Workout with your children - you could literally hold them for squats.  Keep your family active by going on walks, playing at the park, or riding bike - not only are you staying active, you are spending quality time together! 6.  Allow yourself enough time for the activity you want to do - this relates to planning ahead, so knowing the duration of the workout you plan to do in advance, will allow you enough time to finish satisfied.  If you are working out to an online workout or DVD, cue it up or have it ready, so you know when you start, it is GO time! 7.  Do a HIIT workout - you might be surprised by the results you can achieve in as little as 12 minutes. 8.  Appreciate yourself.  Motherhood isn't easy and our bodies take the toll of this as a result.  Love your body for all that it is, all that it has done, and all that it is becoming.   Find great workouts you can do at home here.

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.
