This Is How Kerry Washington Stays in Such Great Shape

September 13, 2015 2 min read

Kerry Washington always seems to appear flawless. From her just-glossed pucker and her smooth complexion to her classy fashion finds, she doesn't miss a beat. And then there's that stunning body of hers. The "Scandal" star turns heads with her toned and taught physique. Have you ever wanted to know what this beautiful celebrity's secret is to staying in such great shape? Her trainer, Julie Turner, spills the beans on the Pilates routine that gets Washington to look so lengthened and toned in SELF's September issue: Standing Jumps Stand with feet hip-width apart. Gently bend knees, then lift heels, then straighten legs, then lower heels. Now add a jump after straightening legs; land softly on feet. Jump for 60 seconds, then rest for 60 seconds. That’s 1 set. Arm Circles Tie a stretchy resistance band to a doorknob and place mat on floor under doorknob. Lie faceup on mat, head under doorknob. Raise legs; bend 90 degrees. Reach back and grab band in each hand, then pull ends out to sides so arms make a T. Circle arms forward 10 times, then backward 10 times for 1 set. Leg Springs Lie faceup on mat with center of band under arches of feet. Cross it over tops of feet and hold one end in each hand. Raise straightened legs 24 inches off floor and pull arms close to your sides. Open legs out to sides; pause, then press together. That’s 1 rep; do 10. Repeat, changing leg position so heels touch end to end. Repeat, changing leg position so toes touch end to end. That’s 1 set. Of the routine, Washington says, "With Pilates, I get to bring my true self. I cry, I laugh. I think, What do I need today?” Have you tried a similar routine to this? Source: Self

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.
