Canada Day Workout

July 01, 2014 2 min read

I am proud to be Canadian, so to celebrate our colourful money, our politeness, our love of hockey, and our ridiculous amounts of rocks and trees and water,  I give you 6 exercises to properly celebrate the Canuck life: 1. RCMP Squats: with a wide stance, as if you’re mounted on the back of a horse, and with a straight back as you proudly protect your countrymen, lower into a full squat and come back up with control. Remember to smile politely. Repeat 20x. canadarcmp 2. Canoe Rows: apparently every Canadian should be able to have sex in a canoe. While that’s definitely good cardio (not to mention balance), here’s an alternative for those without that option. Stand with feet hip distance apart, and your body leaned slightly forward. Row using a free weight or kettle bell, keeping your elbow close to your body. Make it even harder by turning this into a plank row, or doing this in a lunge. Repeat 10x each arm. 3. Terry Fox High Knees: even more fun to do if you have a map of Canada rug, you can high knee your way from Newfoundland to Thunder Bay. Repeat 40 seconds. canadaterryfox 4. Rocky Mountain Climbers:In plank position, bring your right knee forward to your right arm, bring it back and repeat with your left leg. Now smell that brisk Alberta air. Repeat 10x each leg. 5. Caribou Kicks: the mighty relative of the moose, and star of our quarter also packs a mighty kick. Start on all fours, with your hands in line with your shoulders and knees in line with your hips. Keeping your back straight and foot flexed, lift one leg until your thigh is parallel to the ground and pulse/kick upwards. Repeat 10x each side. canadacaribou-1 6. The Lumberjack Woodchop: stand with your knees slightly bent. Hold a sandbag or kettle bell above your right shoulder and swing it down, landing beside your left thigh, just like you’re chopping wood. Repeat 10x each side.

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

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.
