Get fit! 4 tips to get you started.

June 27, 2013 3 min read

You slept in because you hit the snooze button 4 times but you're still tired when you drag yourself out of bed. Since you have a busy day at work and looming deadlines you end up scarfing down a coffee and muffin at your desk for lunch. You feel so ragged that by the time you get home you change into PJs to "relax" in front of the TV. You go to bed early with the intention of getting up early but when the alarm goes off you are still so tired. All of a sudden the weekend hits and between running errands and hanging with friends Sunday evening rolls around and you realize you haven't exercised in a week. You say to yourself, "I'll start Monday." But then you just keep hitting that damn snooze button. Does this cycle sound familiar? You know you need to break the cycle and you know the only way to do it is to exercise. It’s funny the way exercise works. The more you do it the more you want it, the more confident you feel, the strong and better looking you become. Exercise is like medicine. You’re sick and the only way you’ll get better is by taking your medicine. Every. Day. Getting started is the challenge. Just get started. Simple, right? It’s a simple idea but not so simple in practice. If it were, you likely wouldn’t be reading this blog. Here’s 4 tips to help you get started: 1. Make a public pledge: Research shows that people who want to quit smoking are more likely to do it if they make a public pledge. Why? Maybe it’s because they are admitting it out loud, maybe they are afraid of failure. I like to think it’s because if you tell your friends and family your goals, they’ll support you and help you. Whatever type of behaviour you're trying to change, especially exercising daily, let people know that you sincerely want to do it. 2. Start small: My favourite quote is “You don’t have to be great to start but you have to start in order to be great.” BodyRock is perfect because even though each workout is about 12-min long, you can take it at your own pace and intensity. 3. Start now: Don’t wait for Monday. As soon as you are done reading this post rip out 5 pushups or 10 burpees. Go home tonight and go for a bike ride. Whatever it is, just act now. 4. Make exercise fun: Exercise doesn’t have to be a chore! There are a ton of different exercises that you can make into a social event. Ride your bike places instead of driving. Mow the lawn with a self-propelled lawn mower (okay, maybe that’s not fun but you get the idea). There are a lot of ways to turn your daily activities into exercise. Remember that if you have a slip up and miss a day, it’s okay. Try not to miss two days in a row and don't focus on the negative or feel like it means you can give up. You CAN do this and most importantly of all, you deserve it. Start with these tips and take your daily “medicine”. I promise, you won’t regret it.

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
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.
