Bring the Olympics to Your Office With These Fun Ways to Sneak Exercise Into Your Day

February 09, 2014 2 min read

Wishing you were at the Olympics instead of your desk job? Wouldn't we all love it if our job was to be active? Or if we had enough time and money to travel to Russia to watch the games? If you're busy grinding away at your 9-5 I have a great way to turn your desk job into something more active and fun... as long as you're not afraid to look a little silly :) Read on to see how you can bring the Olympics to your office and sneak some exercise into your day!

Set up your teams

The first step is to get some coworkers in on the action. Set up teams of two or more. You could even have different departments compete against each other.

Pick your event

If you have a lot of people, you can have teams of 4 and each team member will compete in one event. If you have less people, each team member can compete in all events. The possibilities are endless! Here are the competition areas:

Desk event

  • Chair dips
  • Desk push ups
  • Chair knee tucks
How many dips, push ups, and knee tucks can you get in while at your desk getting your work done?

Hallway event

  • Walking lunges to wherever you need to get to
  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator (I work on the 15th floor, so maybe I'll just be taking the stairs down after work)
How many lunges and stairs can you fit into your day each time you have to go to a meeting, the bathroom, or the lunch room?

Elevator event

  • Anti-gravity jump lunges
  • Wall sits
How many jump lunges can you get in before the elevator gets to your floor? How long can you hold a wall sit for?

Bathroom event

  • Stall squats
  • High knees
How many squats or knee highs can you get in each time you go to the bathroom?   See which team can sneak in the most exercise during the day (while also getting your job done), and be sure to have an awards ceremony at the end of the week... or a happy hour get together, whichever you prefer :)   :) Pamela   Photo by: Jamie Watason

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.

Clothing

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.
