Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could just walk into the gym, grab a machine, start working and not only get great results, but perform at your best? It would be heaven. Unfortunately, that isn't how our bodies work. In order to make your workout both efficient and effective, it is important you follow a few simple steps. INPOST-workout Here are 4 things you need to do before every workout:

1. Get your head in the game

Prepare yourself mentally for your workout. While you might be tempted to skip this step, we're here to tell you that the connection between mind and muscle is a powerful one. Think about your goals and what you need to do to achieve them. Visualize your workout. Take yourself through every step. Putting on your workout gear will help stimulate this process. Once you've mentally walked yourself through the workout, you'll be ready to get out there and kill it.

2. Hydrate

Always drink water before a workout. Being hydrated can prevent muscle cramps and dizziness. Also, when you are hydrated your body is better able to perform the tasks you are giving it. INPOST-gymtime [bctt tweet="4 Things You Should Do Before Every Workout"]

3. Pre-workout nutrition

You need energy to workout so it is important to give your body the fuel it needs. Having a smoothie or a shake pre-workout, for example, will prevent your body from running through its glucose stores and using protein for energy. You could also try a slow-digesting carbohydrate like a sweet potato, banana or some oatmeal an hour or two before your workout. If you are energized for your workout, you can give it your all which will build that lean muscle you need to be trim and fit. INPOST-workout2

4. Warm-Up

While some people like to skip this part, it is important that you don't. Warming up loosens the muscles and allows them to function better in the fill range of motion that you require during your workout. And, warming up also helps to prevent common gym injuries like muscle pulls or tears. The goal is to warm-up and not to exhaust yourself so do 10 minutes of light cardio and stretches for all your muscle groups. These 4 steps will go a long way toward helping your achieve your goals.

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.
