First we make our Habits - then our Habits make us

December 24, 2013 3 min read

After having my daughter I remember trying to do a workout which once seem like a walk in the park or could have been my warm up.  I could not even do one round let alone two regular push ups.  I remember sitting on the floor thinking…..Do  I give up now and accept that my life in fitness is now a thing of the past or do I say well done, good first effort tomorrow is a new day, a new opportunity…. The first thought made me feel sad, beaten and negative.  The second thought gave me fire in the belly hope and faith to continue to try. I remember feeling so discouraged that I had lost so much progress and that my arms, back, legs and core were so weak.  I remember doing cardio and my lungs were burning and uncomfortably pulling my t-shirt down feeling like I had more rolls than a bakery on my stomach. I remember looking in the mirror and wondering if my body would ever look like it used to. I remember feeling lost, angry, hopeless and discouraged so many times. However where your mind goes your body follows.  My dream was to be happy in my own skin, feel healthy, get fit and be a good role model for my beautiful baby girl.  Given up was not an option and when you do not give up change is inevitable. I am not perfect, but I am consistent. I worked hard every day and did the yards.  I held my Faith in my heart and I knew that if I put the work in each day that I would see changes. Sometimes I noticed results quickly, and other weeks I felt like nothing changed, but I kept at it. I had days because I have an awerrrsome Pastry Chef as a husband I ate way too many sweet foods (and still do) and I missed my workouts because I had a little girl that kept me up all night and/or busy or simply life just ran away with time, but I didn't let it break me.  I reminded myself it is just this moment and the next moment is a new opportunity nobody is perfect. What I realised was most important, was it is the decisions I made and we make each and every day that make a big difference in the end.  First we make our habits then our Habits make us. It is a reminder to all of us the power of consistency and our repeated actions, which become our habits and how they can either make us or break us. Believe and Achieve  Workout 1 Swiss Ball Challenge / Workout  Besides developing good overall muscle tone for your entire body, the ball provides numerous other benefits that range anywhere from rehabilitating back, hip, and knee injuries to delivering a powerful workout to improve core stability, posture, and muscle balance. You also improve your flexibility and your cardiovascular system by using a low-impact workout. For me this was one of the best ways to safely develop my core and back muscles after pregnancy. 30 seconds forward backward lunge jump switch 10 seconds pause 30 seconds Half Ball Burpee 10 seconds pause 30 seconds Ball plank jack in and outs 10 seconds pause 30 seconds Ball Dip [caption id="attachment_34518" align="aligncenter" width="168"]Laine and I enjoying fitness together Laine and I enjoying fitness together[/caption]

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.
