Staying Fit on Shark Week

February 19, 2014 2 min read

For someone who used to have nosebleed fountains, fainting, and the occasional seizure when I got my period, working out wasn’t exactly my main priority during shark week (Thank god for the pill, am I right?). pms__oranges_by_tallizora-d4h842x When you’re bleeding the lining of your uterus from your sexual organs, it’s easy to get off track health-wise. Here are some helpful hints for when you’re on auto-drip. The days leading up to Ant Flo’s visit are integral. Prep list: -       Enlist the help of others. This means either a gym buddy to force you to go, or just getting your roommate to guilt you out of buying cookies. It’s much easier to be healthy if you’ve got a support net. -       Do a really good full work out in the days before shark week. Not only will it help alleviate cramps, but that way you won’t feel so guilty if you’re too busy riding the crimson wave to get to the gym. -       Prepare for your cravings. If your downfall is pizza, get ingredients for English muffin pizzas, much better than a late night run to Domino’s. Chips? Invest in rice chips or crispy minis. I have a giant collection of teas, and for my chocolate cravings I have: orange chocolate tea, mint chocolate rooibos, read my lips, chocolate rocket, chocolate cake tea, birthday cake tea, and red velvet cake tea. I know my enemy, and Chocolate is thy name. periodtumblr_mdyiozwsfa1rhle4ho1_500 When you’ve fallen to the communists, not only are you more prone to bear attacks, but your motivation will go way down. With any luck, this prep has made it easy to stay healthy when you’re seeing red. periodxena Fun fact: you can still lift weights while sitting down, balancing a heated magic bag on your angry uterus. hotwaterbottle Hopefully your woman-time isn’t too much of a detriment to your health routine, but if you do get off track, try not to feel too down, if you’re a work-out machine the rest of the month, I think you can take a week off for blood-letting. Remember, jokes about menstruation aren’t funny. PERIOD.

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.
