10 Bands that Make Jogging a Joy

September 05, 2013 2 min read

There's nothing like some good music to help you pick up the pace when you're trying to jog or run that final mile. You're exhausted, but then that overwhelmingly awesome, upbeat tune  comes on, and your energy supply is restocked - at least until the end of that song.AfterShokz-Sport-male-running

If you're going to run, here are 10 bands that have made it onto my playlist:
  1. Five Finger Death Punch -- The lyrics of some songs may be a bit aggressive, but the music is fantastic! There are a lot of songs with no screaming, and the vocalist sings like an angel - definitely my favorite band to run to.
  2. Disturbed -- Again, strong lyrics in a lot of the songs, but boy does that lead guitar make it easy to keep up the pace! The odd, syncopated rhythms just work to help you run, and you'll have a whole lot more energy with these guys.
  3. Skrillex -- It may seem like an odd choice, but this guy knows how to make music that takes your mind off the running. His best songs will have you focused on the music rather than your feet, and it will make running a blast!
  4. Alter Bridge -- Good quality lyrics meets solid rock music with this band, which definitely knows how to write a tune.
  5. Bullet for My Valentine -- A surprising choice for even me, but all in all a great band with great tunes to run to. The driving beat keeps you going, and the vocals get you hooked.
  6. Escape the Fate -- Definitely not your traditional rock band, but their music will have you running just that little bit faster.
  7. Hinder -- This band is all over the place, with slow, fast, power, and heavy rock. It's good fun to listen to, and the lyrics are actually worth paying attention to.
  8. Seether -- Another all around great rock band, but their music is much simpler than the others on my list.
  9. Theory of a Deadman -- This band does all fast-paced rock, and it gets my heart and lungs working overtime when I listen to their punk-style rock. Good fun!
  10. Three Days Grace -- A band that was once known for soft rock, this group brings it in their latest albums. A great choice if you like milder rock without screaming or heavy guitar riffs.
Get these 10 bands on your running playlist, and you'll feel as energized as I do!

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.
