Embrace The Bump

January 29, 2015 2 min read

My fitness during this pregnancy has not even been close to what it was for the year before : the first 4 months I only saw the back of my eyelids and had a non existent energy ! Diet was off ! Many food aversions ! So I only got back into it during second trimester ! I listened to my body and went when I felt good ! Many days it was just weights ! And a lot lighter ! Barley any cardio because I cramp up a lot while doing it ! I can barely get my flex on ! But I am doing what I can with where I am! I did an at home work out today which I share at the end of this .I work out in a sports bra and shorty shorts infront of the mirror , Your body changes big time when your pregnant ! But you need to embrace it .You accumulate some extra body fat in places that maybe you are not used to having it ! But you can judge yourself and be depressed about the changes or you can embrace them and understand that your growing and nurturing a life inside you ! Every time she kicks it's the best reminder in the world ! And my absolute favourite part about being pregnant ! Our bodies are miraculous and it's amazing what they can do ! Do I miss being a little leaner and seeing my quad muscles ?yes !a little. I will be honest ! But I refuse to let that consume me while this amazing blessing is Happening ! Is it frustrating that some days I can't even push myself for a work out ! Yes but my body is pretty good at telling me and if I don't have the energy and strength then I rest ! God knows I won't have much sleep in the next few months lol ! Keeping a positive mind pregnant or NOT on your body image and where you are is VERY important ! Picking on Yourself and judging yourself does not get you anywhere it's a total waste of energy ! No matter where you are in your journey - just do your best to be your best self and stay positive ! I am brand new to this whole journey and I feel very blessed ! I'm growing fast and she is the beautiful reason !

5x10 squats (ballerina style toes out ass to grass into tricep push backs (fold bands for more resistance ) 3x15 bicep curls 3x10 shoulder raises leg raises laying on side 3x10 each side

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.
