Complaining doesn't burn calories

September 22, 2013 2 min read

Other fitness-industry friends may be able to understand this, or maybe you are that person: Whether it's a family member, friend, or complete stranger. Once the topic of health and fitness comes up, or I mention that I'm a trainer/yoga instructor, the same comment comes out of his/her mouth: "Yeah I need to start working out again/go to yoga." And most likely it takes me a few seconds to respond. Why? Because I have to suppress my initial thoughts and try to figure out what kind of response they're fishing for that won't piss them off. I can't just spit out the magical answer that is going to be your miracle solution... if it were that easy you'd probably be fit by now. If you are looking for me to tell you "oh no, you look fine" when I know you're on 7 medications and your favorite exercise is walking to the fridge for a snack, I'm not going to coddle you. And, my favorite scenario, if you're waiting for a snarky response that you can try to come back at me with, "oh its easy for you to say, you're fit and you exercise all the time"...well I wasn't born good at this was I. I was an overweight teen and bailed on gym class every chance I had. I have people in my life that suffer from weight-related complications and I know how devastating it can be for everyone. The difference between where you are at now and where I am? I got a handle on my body and habits. It didn't happen overnight. It wasn't a miracle diet or exercise fad. I got an education. I learned by trial and error. And I failed A LOT. From diet pills to 0% self-worth, from eating a pack of bacon in one sitting to being vegetarian for 2 years, I've been there. But more importantly, I've come back. Stronger, smarter, confident, and ready to teach anyone willing to listen. I DO work my ass off almost every day. And I WILL tell you that it's easy, because I figured out that convincing myself it is makes it true. If you think something is hard, then you're right. If you think something is easy, then you're right. One day the light bulb will go off, and you'll realize the good feeling of exercise outweighs the "good" feeling of smoking or eating junk food and doing nothing. I am here to dedicate my life to teach you how to re-learn what it means to be happy, healthy and to not have to battle with every little calorie every single day. So if you are hanging out with me and you throw out some little comment like that, you better damn well know that I am not here to play around. Let's go. -Connie

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.
