The Beginner's Guide to Working Out at Home

January 01, 2015 2 min read

Working out at home isn't for everyone, but sometimes, it is the only option that you might have due to various different circumstances. Since giving birth 10 months ago, my home has become my gym as I have built my own home gym in under than $500. But even better is the fact that most of my workouts require little to no equipment. 5 Steps  to Preparing For Your Home Workouts 1. Make a plan. Planning is the essential first step before beginning any exercise regimine, but if you are starting at home, then you will need all the planning that you can get-especially if you have little ones running amuck. Are you going to workout during their naps, will somebody be watching them, or will you include them in your workouts? 2. Look at what you have. Do you have any gym equipment at home? Will you be needing any gym equipment for your at home workouts? If so, then look at what you have that can be used as equipment for your workouts. If not, then no need to worry about this step! 3. Find your space. Are you going to workout in the living room? Is it big enough? Or will you take your workouts outside to the garage or hit the road? 4. Decide what to do. If there's a specific target area in mind that you are wanting to tone up, then you might want to make a list of workouts to do to achieve this goal. Or if you are wanting to focus on doing more cardio vs strength training, you will need to decide what type of cardio to do. 5. Execute! Get your daily list of workouts ready or pop that workout DVD in and go! Make sure you have set aside at least 30 minutes or so to be able to fully focus on your workout. Remember to make the most of this time! You do not need to go to the gym in order to reach your goals. e231cabc463cf065c6d88ca74e551296 Here are some great total-body exercises to do that require zero weights: Cardio:

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.

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.
