January 07, 2015 2 min read

Do you feel yourself lacking energy even after getting a full night's sleep? It could be the little unsuspecting things you do throughout your day that could be causing you to have low energy levels. 1. You're not consuming enough iron salad Finally, an excuse to eat more peanut butter! Loading up on foods that are high in iron (dark green vegetables, lean beef, tofu and eggs) and eating them with food high in vitamin C is an easy way to avoid developing an iron deficiency, which in turn causes you to become drowsy and weak. 2. You don't drink enough water fruit water Often times, we confuse dehydration for hunger and eat up instead of drinking up. Even a 2% fluid loss can affect your energy levels. The daily water intake varies for each person but a simple way of figuring out how much you should be drinking daily is to divide your weight in pounds by two. The resulting number is your recommended water intake in ounces. 3.  You skip exercise when you're tired jogging The days you're feeling too tired to work out are the most important days to hit the gym. Exercise helps your cardiovascular system run smoothly and also delivers oxygen and nutrients to your tissues so even going for a 20 minute run can boost your energy levels. 4. You consume alcohol before bed. wine glass Yes, we're all guilty of enjoying a  glass of wine (or two) before bed. And while you may feel groggy and ready to hit the sheets right after drinking a glass of your favourite red, consuming alcohol actually disrupts your sleep cycle. After alcohol is metabolized, it causes your adrenaline system to experience an upward surge, ultimately causing you to wake up on and off throughout the night. So instead of getting your proper beauty sleep, you're waking up more tired than refreshed in the morning. 5. You watch TV before bed tablet These days, who doesn't watch some Netflix on their tablet before going to sleep? However, studies show that the light of a TV or a computer can throw off your body's natural circadian rhythm, causing unregulated sleep. Experts recommend holding your device about 12 inches away from your face to avoid sleep interference.

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 2-3 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.

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.
