Body confidence. It may be a buzzword, but it is not something easily found in ourselves. Yes, an inspirational song or quote on our Pinterest board may inspire a fleeting moment of "Oh, heck yes! I'm perfect the way I am!" But 5 minutes later a sexy pic of a Victoria Secret supermodel on the same board has us as downtrodden as ever. What is the secret to constant body confidence? Well...in my personal opinion I don't think there is any. I don't think even Candice Swanepoel or Megan Fox or, (god forbid) Beyonce feel 100% hot all of the time. I'm sure Beyonce looks herself over in the mirror in the morning after a late night (a concert perhaps, and then Blue wouldn't go down for her nap) and critiques what she sees. One mom, a self-proclaimed "fat girl in a bathing suit", reveals her startlingly honest approach to body confidence. Nicole Janswoki, is a mother of 4 and author of What You Don't See When You Look at the Fat Girl in a Bathing Suit. And she isn't perfect. Like most of us she maintains a relatively healthy diet with chia seeds and smoothies and spinach galore. But she loves dessert and soft cheese. And although she works hard to keep healthy, she does not have a thigh gap and her arms have, in her mind, an unrelenting jiggle.   Nicole's secret to feeling good, maybe even great on most days, is what she places her value on. She reminds herself of what is capable of when she feels a shake in her confidence, a judging eye following her around as she bares a two piece on the beach.   "I’m strong. I can teach an 8-year-old girl to ride a two-wheeler in one Saturday afternoon and carry in six bags of groceries in one trip from the car. Sometimes I am the only one in the house strong enough to open a jar of dill pickles. Once I carried a bed up two flights of stairs, all by myself. You can’t find those things, these intangible things, in the thick knot of flesh above my knees." Nicole says. Her positive reminders of who she is, and how much more of her there is than meets the eye, is the definition of true confidence. Next time you feel sad, depressed or angry with your body, try remembering you are. What defines you far beyond belly flab or your dress size? Let us know! Create a list of confident reminders and see what it does to your sense of self!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
