Day 1 of 21 Day Challenge: Start At The Very Beginning

March 24, 2014 3 min read

A very good place to start. My stomach was absolutely a jumble of nervousness when I woke up this morning. I really don’t know why I would be feeling so anxious about this challenge, it’s not like I’m accountable to anyone else, and it’s only myself that will be disappointed if I fail horrendously. Okay, well maybe that does make sense as to why I’m so nervous then – it’s all down to me to succeed or fail.

Modifications:
    • I don’t have the equipment (yet) so I just used what I had around the house – weights, a piano bench for the tricep dips, and some books and pillows for the sandbag.
    • Being a bit of a beginner I kept it pretty simple: didn’t do elevations, and although I didn’t have to go to my knees for any of the push-ups, I did take them pretty slow.
    • For the plank punches I just imagined I was Bender in the last shot of The Breakfast Club – not exactly a modification, but believe me, it helped.
FOOD: Started my morning with tea, and although there were pancakes keeping warm in the oven I stayed strong and had some scrambled eggs with peppers and onions instead. Snacked on a couple of cookie dough bites (don’t judge me, it’s just cashews and medjool dates, I promise!). For lunch I had a delicious salad chock-full of veggies and topped with dried cranberries, pecans, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds (I like my salads to have a lot of crunch to them). My dinner was a lovely vegetable stir-fry with chickpeas on brown rice with a curry sauce made from crushed tomatoes, coconut milk, curry powder and cumin. It’s not one of the recipes from the guide, but it still follows the guidelines – and it was mighty tasty. Plus I made a bunch of extra for leftovers, it will probably be my lunch tomorrow. THOUGHTS:
    • The prep is important, make sure you read through what the workout will involve before starting so that you can have everything ready to go.
    • I want to be on a beach so badly. Why am I living in the frozen tundra that is Canada right now?
    • I really need to get groceries, eating healthy is almost as tiring as the workouts. Not really, but I DO need to stock my larder with some almond milk, beans and chickpeas, and a ton of other food, to stay on top of my healthy eating – I don’t want to be stuck in the house with a frozen pizza as my only food option.
    • Last thought: I did it! Now I just have to keep doing it for 20 days.

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.

Clothing

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.
