You Can Do This.

The dailyhiit receives no shortage of feeback from it's 7-figure world-wide audience and, as it turns out, a big chunk of what's sent in are questions about how to keep moving during pregnancy. Well, we're listening. I've recently been asked to write and produce video content that will help women remain active throughout their pregnancies. I’ve been working with prenatal, postnatal and pregnant women for years now and I'm thrilled to be involved in this project for this audience. In preparation, I’ve been reading through the long-and-ever-growing list of questions that women have been submitting and, as I wade through enquiries about safe exercises and reasonable expectations, a pattern is beginning to emerge. There's a subtext to every mention of stretch marks, c-sections, back pain and fatigue that gets harder to ignore the more I read, like a cloud that looked like a sailboat, just for a minute, and now won't go back to looking like a cloud. People are scared. They're scared of changing and not knowing into what but whatever it is just won't be strong enough, or sexy enough. They're scared of losing the identities they've painstakingly crafted for their entire lifetime up to this point, identities rooted too firmly in dress size, split time, or income. Like every other person, man or women, who has a shred of self-awareness, they're scared of failure. And who can blame them?   Well before I say a word about joints, or muscles or bones, before I start cracking jokes, teasing rivals or giving advice, before I dare to offer help of any kind, there is one thing that I need to say. Mothers, would-be mothers, long-awaited mothers, unwilling mothers, thrilled mothers, natural mothers, modern mothers, frightened mothers, mothers who don’t yet know they are mothers:

You can do this.

I don’t know you, but I know a lot about you. I know that you are the evolutionary product of 2 billion years of an endless variety of organisms competing to be the most stupendous badass on this mass of rock and saltwater and, at the moment, you are winning. I know that there has never been a creation story told anywhere on Earth that is half as extraordinary as the one that takes place in your body; gods and heroes haven’t got a thing on the quiet deluge of cellular division you are capable of orchestrating. I know that you are strong because strength is not the hammer; it’s the forge. “You’re as big as a house!” you’ll hear. Bullshit. You’re a mountain and the wind blowing hard through the timberline booms with a voice that says, in no uncertain terms, do not fuck with me. You’re a lava flow cooling in the Pacific, all heat and steam and purpose. You’ll change—oh yes, you’ll change—and what you’ll be when you’re done is two people and if that doesn’t blow your mind it’s only because you haven’t really thought about it yet. You are not diminished; you are enhanced. Whatever you thought you were before, you’re better. Whatever scares you now, you’ll conquer. Whoever you were is exactly who you are still going to be, only with more love and less fear. You are a lightning bolt, and you can do this.

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.

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.
