Your Cart is Empty

Just because I'm little, doesn't mean I can't take you down!

February 27, 2014 2 min read

For those who follow my blogs know that I love to switch up my workouts. With the new year, comes new goals. I've realized over the last few months that my cardio has gone down tremendously. Not on purpose, maybe it's a cause of laziness but I found myself realistically only doing cardio maybe twice a week....which, to the average American, sounds pretty good right?... but I'm not ok with being average :) My regular workout routine typically involves, 3-4 days of resistance training and 1-2 days of cardio with one pole dancing fitness class per week. I think one type of workout that a lot of women will look over the shoulder at is Boxing. Maybe they think it's too "violent" or even just too hard for their fitness level... I don't know.. but it's none of the above. Boxing is such an amazing workout, no matter what your fitness level is. The sport really is the test of all test. Boxing teaches you how to be strong both physically and mentally.  On a more personal level, right now being strong mentally is absolutely what I need! There's no better way to do that then stepping into the ring. It's been a few months since my last boxing class, so I have to admit, I was a little nervous being in a new gym, new students,  new instructors and environment. There are several boxing gyms out there, some a little more intense than others... if a "real" boxing/UFC/MMA gym is a little bit too intense for your liking, find a cardio kickboxing class / gym. Groupon is my best friend in finding new gyms! The one I chose however, is a little more "intense" than a basic kickboxing class. The second my hands were in those wraps, everything changed! My confidence, presence, and my entire mindset. You literally feel like you can take on the world.. and at 4'9" I feel like a little bad ass knowing I can take you down :) When you box, you reduce stress by hitting your zone and focusing on the technique required to throw a perfect punch. Your presence is how you are initially perceived and perception becomes reality.
All I can say is hoollllllyyyy hell! So if you're looking to add in a little intensity into your cardio workout for that spring break trip, make sure you check out your local boxing gym to not only to improve your self image, but become a better athlete and learn a little humility at the same time :)

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.
