Put Yourself First and today's workout.

August 15, 2013 2 min read

Hi BodyRockers, Just before we jump into today's workout I wanted to talk to you about the importance of taking care of YOU first. One of the hardest places to find yourself is stuck between choosing to take care of yourself first over the needs or wants of someone else.
 We've been taught that thinking of ourselves first is greedy, or selfish or mean. When it comes to taking care of ourselves on a deeper level we often feel conflicted and choose to put the needs of others before what we know we need to be happy. It's just easier to compromise and put everyone else first. That way we don't have to deal with guilt, drama or pressure that often comes with disappointing someone else's expectations.
Eventually tho you will look around and realize that most of your life is running according to other people's play books. You might look around at your own life and wonder - what the hell is in this for me? When you always put everyone else's needs before your own you can  start to feel disconnected and loose your sense of purpose. Don't let this happen to you.
We all know when we need something, and usually we even know what we need. The hard part comes in taking action and asking for it. Dealing with other people's emotional responses, disappointment and guilt tripping is part and parcel for standing up straight in life and looking after yourself. Only after you've covered your own basic needs can you realistically be in a position to care for those around you.
Your decision to look after you might cause a ruckus with friends and family, but in the end it's better to ruffle a few feathers now then start to feel resentment against those around you fostered from your inability to take care of your own basic needs. Don't let it come to bitterness and resentment. Take care of you first - you will be a better person for 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 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.
