Inspirational BodyRocker: Irina

  The first picture I was to embarrassed to even show my face . I've had a baby and the before pic is about 2 months after giving birth and the after was taken 2 days ago. Its been 11 months ever since. :)After I had my son I gained a lot of weight. Before I got pregnant I was a size 4. My pregnancy wasn't as nice as it thought it would be. I was always in pain and even a 5 minute walk was like hell for me. Because of the lack of physical activity I gained weight to a size 12. After my son was born and the doc gave me the GO on the working out part (2 months after birth) It was sooo hard! Since I had no muscles left, I couldn't even do simple up and down jumps. I was out of breath after 3 jumps. I cried so many times but I knew there was no way I would give up. And now im on my last few pounds. All together I lost 22 lbs which may not sound much but I also gained about 18 lbs muscle weight. So if you add that, that makes about 40 lbs on fat that I lost :) all I can say is that I'm EXTREMELY happy that I didn't give up, as hard as it was in the beginning. Just always kept in mind that it will get better and that its not impossible. So many others did it so why shouldn't I be able to do it too? unnamed Irina this is so incredible. Way to freaking go! You had a goal in mind and even though it was tough at times - you persevered. You should be incredibly proud! And your story is an incredible reminder that the number on the scale does NOT matter! It's apparent that you lost an incredible amount of weight - but because you put on so much muscle, that number isn't that low. And that's a good thing! Building 18lbs of muscle is NOT easy.

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.
