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
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 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

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.
