Fit Bodies Are Made in the Kitchen.. But Weights Help, Too

January 21, 2015 2 min read

We have heard that abs are made in the kitchen, but what about your whole entire body? While experiences have proven time and time again that you cannot out-work a bad diet, I wanted to shed some light on an experience of my own to see just how much difference a good diet can make without exercise versus a bad diet with a good bit of working out. Yes, exercise and a clean diet go hand-in-hand when it comes to acheiving the ultimate fit body and you simply shouldn't focus on one over the over. People tend to think its crazy to place so much emphasis on diet, but I will show you why we do it. Since losing 45 lbs. when I discovered clean eating, I was all into it! I was so excited with my results from dieting alone that I did not step foot inside of a gym becuase I did not think I needed to. However, it left me skinny-fat with little tone. I realized at this point that I wanted muscle. The picture below shows my body on eating clean alone-no working out. (Prior to pregnancy) 10383893_833331013376579_8065400111217315097_n After seeing how skinny I was and how I wanted more definition, I gave up on clean eating for a while and, instead, I upped my workouts 4 times a week for about 30-45 minutes. I ate processed junk and even skipped breakfast some days. BUT, I was working out. And as many people like to believe, you can eat whatever you want and workout to look great-but, sometimes, due to genetics and our chemical makeup, not everyone can do this. Take me, for instance, I couldn't. After a few weeks, I appeared bloated and bigger (though the bigger part might have been due to the weights).  This photo was taken maybe a couple of months prior to my pregnancy. 10383893_833331013376579_8065400111217315097_n When my husband and I got the news that we were finally pregnant, I decided that I needed to eat clean and to workout to have the fittest pregnancy possible. So, I decided to finally combine a clean diet with going to the gym. I went back to staying away from refined and processed junk food as well as fast foods and sugar. I did not skip meals and started eating 5-6 small meals a day, including taking protein. I have done this since a month before my husband and I conceived my little one and it has been continuing even to this day-10 1/2 months postpartum. I have my best body ever, thanks to the gym and clean eating: combined. The results speak for themselves. 10383893_833331013376579_8065400111217315097_n   hhh I would have to say, yes, fit bodies are made in the kitchen... but they are also made in the gym, too. If you choose one without the other, you will have some off-balanced results, as I have shown above. You cannot outwork a bad diet.. But you also cannot eat your way to a toned physique, either.

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.
