Screen-shot-2009-11-25-at-Wed11-2511.35-1 Thanksgiving is just right around the corner and most of us are already planning our big holiday feasts or will be going to one. Don't get blindsighted by all of the yummy food, though! Being a holiday does not warrant a reason to go overboard with our calories as we usually tend to do. However, everything is great (as you have heard a bazillion times) in moderation. Did you know that the average person eats over 1,000 calories in just the Thanksgiving dinner alone? Yikes! 1. Think before you eat: Here are the recommended proportions for a typical Thanksgiving meal and the amount of activity to burn the calories off. ProtienShake 3 oz. of Turkey (about 150 calories) = 15 Minute Run 1/2 Cup of Casserole (150 calories) = 15 Minutes of Dancing 1/2 Cup of Stuffing (180 calories) = 30 Minutes of Pilates 1/2 Cup of Mashed Potatoes (150 calories) = 300 Burpees 1/4 Cup Cranberry Sauce (100 calories) = 20 Minutes of Stair Running 1/4 Cup of Gravy (50 calories) = 50 Burpees 1 Tsp. Butter  (35 calories) = 10 Minutes of Cycling 5 oz. of Pie (350 calories for pumpkin; 400 calories for apple pie;  500 calories for pecan) = 60 Minutes of Yoga, 35 Minutes of Running, Jogging for 45 Minutes)   2.

Shipping & Delivery
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 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

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.
