Superstar fashion designer, Vera Wang, has a body at 70 that many women in their 20s would envy. Stuck in quarantine, like all of us, she nevertheless donned her heels and took some selfies showing skin.

At almost 71 years of age, her flat tummy and general muscle tone made the world stand up and say "How!?"

Wang has always been her own person setting herself apart from traditions and trends, with pieces like her orange wedding dress and mask combo for pandemic weddings, or announcing that owns a deep freezer just for ice cream.

When she posted these pics, above, the world asked about her diet, her workouts, her lifestyle, and she dismissed all queries with this one response, which will go down in history:

"Work, sleep, a Vodka cocktail, and not much sun."

So, as we are experts in nutrition and metabolism, strength training and mobility, we can look at this woman's physique and know immediately that there is more going on here.

We don't see a skinny wraith here, who may have been neglecting her health by working too much and drinking hard liquor. We see a woman who has a few tricks up her sleeve: tricks she may not want to reveal.

Let's reveal 'em, shall we?

This just in: Vera Wang works out.

We know this, because she has a personal trainer and posted pics of herself working out on her IG account.

Using weights in repetitive sets, and having a trainer teach you about workout your pecs versus delts versus biceps, is key to having a physique that works in a cyclical loop: the fewer muscles you ignore, the more lean muscle you build, which increases your ability to burn more calories, which reduces fat storage, which gives you more stamina so you can work your muscles for longer periods of time per session, which builds more muscle, etc.

HOT TIP: You don't need a personal trainer to teach you this if you follow online workouts led by trainers who provide this information at the start of every workout!

Vera Wang is telling us to not take ourselves too seriously. This is her main impact, and it's a good one. We need to eat well, sleep well, and relax as often as possible. Work hard, yes, but still have cheat days. Eat whole foods rather than processed foods, but ice cream every now and then is not the end of the world! At BodyRock, we don't insist on a rigid, disciplined system. You need to find a schedule and lifestyle that works for you.

For a lot of our BodyRockers lately, the key is to find a workout routine. This is why we offer Bootcamps, 30 Day Challenges, and quick 5 day workouts for Moms, and over 1000 other options for your daily workouts.

Wow, she is amazing, Ernestine Shepherd. I also think though that genetics have a lot to do with it. I work out, have been for years, eat right, and am 61. I look good for 61, but not at all as good as Ernestine Shepherd or Vera Wang. I am really impressed with Ernestine Shepherd. Wow!!

Vera is slim but doesn’t look healthy. She looks amazing for age 70 but if you really want a “oh Snap” moment look up Ernestine Shepherd, 83 year old body builder, you will be blown away.

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.

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.
