3 Easy Steps To The Body You've Always Wanted

September 02, 2015 2 min read

We're all working out purely for the health benefits, right? Well, probably not. Not only do we want the health benefits, most of us want to actually look like someone who is fit. Health coach, nutritionist and personal trainer, Angela Shurina, has put together these three 'life hacks' to help you start seeing the most from your muscles and your body:

1. Don't eat foods you hate.

For lean muscle, you don't have to live on boiled chicken alone! You can eat your favourite foods, you only need to keep your macronutrient ratio during the day. There is a lot of research on the subject but here is what the ideal ratio looks like:  30 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent proteins and 40 percent fats. Shurina explains, "A healthy mix of these macronutrients is the best way to fuel your body. Fats are important for hormone production, which is essential for healthy life. Carbohydrates provide energy for our life and workouts. When we consume healthy, carbohydrate-rich foods like fruits, vegetables, yams, sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, oatmeal — we get lots of necessary fiber. Proteins are building blocks of every cell in our body, our muscles included."

2. Find the eating plan that works best for you.

accountable Don't just blindly follow arbitrary rules like eating 5 meals a day or eliminating certain foods completely. You have to find whatever it is that works for you. That might mean eating two or three bigger meals a day, for others, it may mean intermittent fasting. Whatever you choose, make sure it is sustainable. But remember, if you are eating too much food, you will never see your abs. If abs are your goal, you may need to cut your calorie consumption. Just something to keep in mind.

3. Visualize your new, lean body.

When you are trying to make something happen, visualization is a big part of it. As Shurina explains, "It’s important to visualize the process and lifestyle choices we make on a daily basis: healthy eating, working out, enjoying being fit and healthy, shopping for clothes for our new body and enjoying our new friends who are into a similar lifestyle." Keep these things in mind while tackling your workouts and daily life choices. These three tips can go a long way to helping you reach your body goals in a relatively easy and sustainable way! What's the point if it isn't sustainable, right? Have you reached your body goals? Tell us how you got there!! Source: MindBodyGreen

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.
