May 19, 2015 2 min read

There are a number of risks to being obese and overweight. These include: sleep apnea, diabetes, depression, back pain, cardiovascular disease and some types of cancer. Consistent exercise and proper eating habits can increase energy and improve lifestyle. Tricia Leahey, phD, Professor of psychiatry at Brown University's Warren Alpert Medical School says that there are several side effects that come with losing large amounts of weight. Four potential concerns can stall your progress or discourage you from reaching your end goal. In order to avoid complications, it's important to monitor your weight. Loose Skin If your looking to acquire tight abs, toning your body is the way to go. Loosing a lot of weight can result in excess skin which is hard to remove. If you find it's hard to get rid of fat, plastic surgery may be the best route. The Blues According to a study from University College London, nearly 2,000 people develop depression when pounds aren't lost. Get tons of sleep and eat healthy foods. If you notice you're becoming preoccupied with loosing weight, look for other alternatives. Hang out with friends and family who have a positive outlook or consider seeing a psychologist who can help shift your perception on weight loss. Lost Love Your relationship with a loved one can suffer tremendously. Encourage them to be on board and together, you can both have a successful transformation. Develop a plan and stick to it. Nothing beats a great support system. Stomach Pain Loosing weight fast creates gallstones. In turn, you will experience stomach pain. Include fat in your diet to ensure that your gallbladder is functioning properly. If your experiencing symptoms like serious stomach pain, fever and nausea, consult your doctor.

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.
