Building a Future: How Fitness Helped me Land My "Big Girl Job"

January 31, 2014 2 min read

phone pics january 2014 422   Wake up, train, shower, eat breakfast, drive to work, work 9-10 hours, train again, eat dinner, sleep.  This has been my daily routine for as long as I can remember.  In college, I had no idea what I wanted to do and sometimes I still am not sure what exactly I want to do “when I grow up” but last month I landed what seems to be a step in the right direction towards my dream job and it is all thanks to fitness. When I started at my current company, I had just moved to San Diego and I did not know ANYONE.  I would come to work every day with damp hair because I did not have time to blow dry it after my work out and get to work on time and I would bring my big cooler with my lunch and snacks for the day. So here I was, the girl with wet hair who brought a feast to work every day and had no idea what she was doing sitting in this cubicle.  Then, one day, I was approached at my desk by a coworker and asked about my boiled chicken and asparagus concoction and if I was on a diet.  My mouth full of very dry chicken and smelly, but yummy, asparagus, replied, “No, not a diet, I am eating to build muscle.” And oh boy! Did that open up an entire conversation!  I now had a friend at my new job and they knew what I did outside of work!  Yay!  Soon, that one coworker started to tell surrounding coworkers that my degree was in nutrition and that I was a personal trainer and basically everything that I had told her about myself.  Coworkers started to ask me about workout tips and they would share their routines with me and it became a very fun topic of conversation around the office. I was now able to come to work with wet hair and not feel weird about it because everyone now knew a little more about me.  Talk turned into workout sessions at our company’s gym and that turned into me being asked to hold a weekly bootcamp for anyone at our company that was interested. Now, over a year later, I still teach those weekly bootcamps and I am now in a new role, because of my knowledge of the health and wellness industry and I am able to travel all over the United States promoting wellness! Looking back even a couple of years ago, I would have never thought that my love and passion for fitness would help me achieve the great job that I have now.  Thank you to the coworker who took notice to this strange and not at all corporatey looking  girl for talking to me and wanting to learn more about me.  Because of fitness and because of the relationships I have built within my company due to exercise and bootcamps, I now feel content and accomplished with my career and confident that I can achieve all of my goals with fitness in my life.

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.


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.
