15 V-Ups: driasiagiveaway
  • Lie face-up on the floor with your legs and arms straight.
  • Hold your arms straight above the top of your head.
  • In one movement, simultaneously lift your torso and legs as if you're trying to touch your toes.
  • Lower your body back to the starting position. (If this is too difficult, you can bend your knees and pull them toward your chest instead).
20 Oblique V-Ups: IMG_8224.CR2
  • Lie on your left side, legs angled 30 degrees from your hips.
  • Rest your left arm on the floor and put your right hand behind your head
  • Lift your straight legs off the floor, bringing your torso toward your legs
  • Slowly return to start. That's one rep.
1 minute Downward Dog Pose: driasiagiveaway  
  • From Cobra, come onto all fours. Separate your knees to hip-width apart, move your wrists slightly forward of your shoulders, and curl your toes under.
  • Exhale and spread your fingers wide, press evenly through your palms, and lift your knees to reach your hips toward the ceiling. Keep your legs slightly bent.
  • Push the tops of your thighs back so your body looks like an inverted “V” Slowly start to straighten your legs as much as feels appropriate for you, without locking your knees.
  • Gently move your chest back toward your thighs until your ears are even with your upper arms. And keep lifting your hips away from your heels and wrists.
30 second Boat Pose: driasiagiveaway  
  • Begin seated with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor, hands resting beside your hips.
  • Keeping your spine straight, lean back slightly and lift your feet, bringing your shins parallel to the floor.
  • Draw in your low back, lift your chest, and lengthen the front of your torso. Then, extend your arms forward, in line with your shoulders with your palms facing each other. Balance on your sit bones, keeping your spine straight. Take care not to let your lower back sag or chest collapse.
  • Lengthen the front of your torso from your pubic bone to the top of your sternum. The lower belly (the area below your navel) should be firm and somewhat flat, but not hard or thick.
  • With an exhalation, straighten your legs to a 45-degree angle from the ground, bringing your body into a "V" shape.
  • Spread your shoulder blades wide and reach out through your fingers, actively engaging your hands.
  • Stay in the pose for five breaths, gradually working up to one minute. To release the pose, exhale as you lower your legs and hands to the floor.
1 minute Single Leg Plank: driasiagiveaway  
  • Get on the floor and prop yourself up with your toes flexed underneath you and your elbows under your shoulders, shoulder blades back and down.
  • Your body should form a straight line. Brace your abs and lift your right leg up about 30 centimetres.
  • Balance your body weight on your forearms and the stabilizing leg. Hold for up to 60 seconds. Switch legs and repeat on the other side.

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.

Clothing

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.
