June 29, 2015 2 min read

Aaaaaaaand I'm back with my ridiculous puns! (yay!) So....if you still haven't gotten it: This is a core workout! Not only are we going to hit those abs but we're going to blast those obliques, work the stabilizers and (hopefully not) cry by the end of it! What You Need: vest_v2_1_1024x1024 The Down Low: This is a pyramid! Start with 26 reps, then 16 reps, then 12 reps. If you MUST rest, you get 20 sec tops! Good luck!

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.

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.
