Day 24: I don't know how I survived that workout, but I'm loving these endorphins!

February 13, 2014 2 min read

I skipped the rest day for day 23 because I felt full of energy today and was craving a workout, and went straight on to day 24. I've said this about a few workouts throughout the challenge, but this one now has the crown for being the hardest so far. I am actually quite shocked that I managed to survive the workout! I felt exhausted even after the first round! I can't choose my favourite exercise from this workout because I loved every single part of it, and my body feels amazing now. I'm actually even typing faster because I'm on such a high from it. The endorphins are flying around my body! my-drug-is-endorphins_design For those of you who are fairly new to working out, you may not understand what endorphins are. Well endorphins are basically your body's natural feel good chemicals. They are among the brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters, which function to transmit electrical signals within the nervous system. They are produced as your body's response to stress, fear or pain, and work as natural painkillers. They are released for many reasons, with possibly the most commonly known reason being exercise. They result in feelings of euphoria and generally lowered feelings of stress, which is why after a workout you get that 'post workout glow'. Enjoy it! You've earned it. tumblr_mcvuxk6Frd1rpklzm On the note of feeling happy, I'm really pleased with how I ate today: Breakfast: Porridge Lunch: Tomato soup (on the go so I had a flask with me) Dinner: Mediterranean salmon on a bed of kale (from the Catching Fire guide) I loved the salmon recipe last time I made it, so couldn't wait to do it again, and it was even better the second time round! I'm feeling amazing! I've eaten great food today and worked my butt off exercising so I feel on top of the world. Go release your endorphins now guys! Get up and go workout.

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 2-3 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.
