Fitness in the Tabloids: Baby Weight Panic, Heart Attack Scare, and Sizzurp

April 22, 2014 2 min read

It’s a new week, and a new round of ridiculous tabloid stories to mock. Here are the top fitness related tabloid stories this week. Life&Style’s Knifestyles of the rich and famous page completely picks part Winona Ryder, and accuses her of having botox, a rhinoplasty, cheek fillers, lip fillers, and a slew of other cosmetic surgeries. It compares a picture of Winona in 1990, and a current photo – how dare she look mildly different? It must be plastic surgery, it couldn’t possibly be 20 years of aging gracefully. fitnesstabloidwinona     Us Weekly is all over the C-list celebs stories, as former Real Housewives of Atlanta star (star? Can we call her that? There should be a better term) Kim Zolciac shares how she got her pre-baby body back just four months after giving birth to twins, with the help of her NFL player husband. fitnesskim-zolciak-kroy-biermann-lg     In Life&Style, Britney Spears’ personal trainer, Tony Martinez, spills the beans on how Britney lost 20lbs in just 4 weeks. Her secret is protein packed meals, controlling portion sizes, and working out. SHOCK AND AWE.fitnesslife&style2     Both Star magazine and OK! report on Rob Kardashian’s weight gain struggles. He’s currently at a rehab centre for substance abuse issues, since it wasn’t just the overeating that caused his weight gain, it was weed and sizzurp consumption – good ol’ purple drank, always leads to rehab. fitnesstabloidrob   In Touch gives the scoop that Miley Cyrus might have a heart attack! According to doctors who have never ever treated her, and based on her 2009 memoir that mentioned her tachycardia, a slightly above average heart beat rate, as well as her reefer smoking alcoholic lifestyle choices. It’s a race against time before Miley’s heart stops twerking. fitnessmileytabloid   In Touch also reports on Christina Aguilera having baby weight panic, and the magazine gallantly concern-trolls her with platitudes like “don’t be so hard on yourself!” with an underlying tone of “don’t gain anymore weight”. They also refer to her as Xtina on the cover, which I find entirely unnecessary. fitnesstabloid in touch     For a similarly pithy take on tabloid magazines check out Jezebel's midweek madness.

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.
