Time To "Twerk" It to Get in Shape

September 19, 2013 2 min read

Everyone's been going crazy about the Miley Cyrus twerking incident at the VMA's, but they've all forgotten one thing: twerking is pretty exhausting! Have you ever tried to twerk? I did, and my legs and glutes got tired within just a few seconds. It's a tiring move, and it's one that you may want to try to get in shape! Miley Cyrus may not be a role model when it comes to how to behave in public, but she certainly knows about staying fit. You can see how slim she is in her latest music video - though, granted, you can see pretty much everything in that video! rs_560x415-130830150852-1024..miley-cyrus-twerk-vma.ls.83013

Twerking for Fitness

Twerking is more than just shaking your booty - it's actually a really good workout:
  • It burns a lot of calories, as you're doing a cardio workout as you dance
  • It works those gluteus maximus muscles - the most important muscles for women to define (IMO!)
  • It gives your legs a great workout, both quads and hamstrings
  • It works your core, as your back and stomach are working with your legs to move your body
If you want to get your core and lower half in shape, you may want to take a page from Miley Cyrus' book.

Crazy Dance Moves to Get Fit

There are some other pretty crazy dance moves to help you get fit: Gangnam Style -- Yes, Korea's favorite superstar unleashes his "prancing pony" dance move - which is surprisingly good for your legs and cardio. Have you ever "Gangnam-styled" your way down even just one block? You'll be breathing heavily, and your legs will be on fire. The good thing is, your dance moves will be on fire too! 2595279-psy-gangnam-style-video-617-409 Jennifer Anniston --­If you haven't seen the "Friends" star's amazing moves in her latest movie, We're the Millers, you're missing out on a great show. Not only are her moves incredibly seductive, but they showcase the star's fitness. I've never tried pole dancing or pole fitness myself (I'm pretty sure a pole won't hold me), but you know those ladies on the pole are crazy fit - like the woman in this video here… jennifer-aniston-1-600 Shuffling -- Those guys from LMFAO are made-fit if they can actually "shuffle" like that for the full 6 ½ minutes of "Party Rock". That move is crazy tough for your calves, and it gets your upper legs and cardiorespiratory system working as well. If you want to party like a Party Rock-star, you'll get in great shape too! party rock anthem

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
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.

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.
