Why I Workout and NEVER Look At The Scale

December 27, 2014 2 min read

Why I workout.... Right out of the gate let me start by saying that I am not a fitness expert by no means butI am a fitness lover. I truly enjoy working out. For me the benefits really do out way the effort. My workout routine is as follows. I wake up around 5 a.m and make my coffee. I read my emails and get caught up on social media. If I am not doing a challenge workout routine I go through workouts found on Youtube (BodyRock) and target the area of my body that is to be worked out that particular day. For example:
  • Mondays I like to do 30 minutes min. of cardio (My preferred cardio is Kickboxing)
  • Tuesdays I like to do 30 minutes min. of strength I use 10 lbs weights and try to target my arms and larger muscle groups for a better burn
  • Wednesdays I like to do a Yoga routine (I need more flexibility and this helps with that)
  • Thursdays I like to focus on my core (I have had a bad back and strengthening my core is very important)
  • Friday I try and do a 30-45 minute mishmash of Cardio and HIIT
  • Saturday can be a toss up - I see how I feel and if I am not too sore I generally like to do a 30-45 min. walking routine
  • Sunday is my rest day & I actually have to rest on purpose cause I WANT to work out!!! Go figure.
For me the benefit of working out is simply that it makes me feel good. I feel like I am investing in my future self, I am getting stronger and healthier.  I feel like I have succeeded at something wonderful and that pumps me up for the remainder of the day. I actually look forward to the next days workout, that is how awesome I feel. I have had to STOP weighting myselfas it proved to be detrimental to me and would only discourage me. I was putting way too much stock in the number on the scale instead of what changes I was really seeing in my body. I also had to stop listening to all the hype on the internet about working out - do this, don't do that. Eat this but never that, burn this many calories have a BMI of this amount blah blah blah. Truth be told if you have the basics covered and you have a healthy foundation for what you should put into your body combined with a healthy exercise routine you WILL see results. You just have to decide to start and never give up, PUSH yourself.

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.
