Soccer Star Alex Morgan's World Cup Workout and Fitness Tips

June 08, 2015 2 min read

Summer is almost here and no doubt you are feeling extra motivated to get your bod looking right. Soccer star (and US Olympic Gold Medalist), Alex Morgan, is training hard for the FIFA Women's World Cup in Canada and has some tips for you. Can you think of anyone in better shape than a soccer player? alexmorgan2

Get That Cardio In

"As a forward, I'm always doing interval runs. I do a 2:1 ratio of running and jogging. So, for every two-minute stride I take a one-minute jog. I try to repeat this at least six times. At the very end, I run a mile at my top speed to see how tired I've gotten compared to when I go for my normal mile run. The goal is to minimize the difference in times so I can be less fatigued in the 80th minute of a game. I also do lots of lunges, squats, and core-strengthening exercises in the gym."

Get Your Mind Right

"Mentally, I've learned that failure is sometimes inevitable—especially in soccer. You have a 50/50 chance of winning, but if you're able to overcome a loss, you'll be stronger because of it." alexmorgan3

Grab a friend

"My sister loves when I put her through my national team workout or lifts at the gym. I think it's always better to have a workout buddy to push you and hold you accountable!"

Believe in yourself

"Having confidence in any sport you play or workout you do is key. You need to look and feel your best out on the field, on the court, or wherever it may be. That's why I teamed up with Tampax Pearl Active. I want girls to get off the sidelines and into the game every day of the month. My team also always pulls out the red, white, and blue polish during the World Cup to dress up a little—be on the lookout!" alexmorgan4

Create a fitness plan

"I think it's important to make a schedule and stick to it. Set goals for yourself too. When you reach them, all the work you put in will feel so worth 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 2-3 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.
