6 Life Lessons to Help You See Exercise and Eating in a Healthier Light

September 03, 2015 2 min read

life lessons A lot of people feel like they can't earn that piece of pizza or that slice of cake until they work for it. The gym then automatically becomes the one thing that stands in the way of you and your cravings. But have you ever heard someone say: “Don’t earn your food in the gym”?   The reason this saying came to be is because many of us often find food as a treat, rather than a part of our healthy lifestyle. We view the gym and working out in general as a task that must be completed in order to grasp this reward. But exercising isn't meant to be a task. There are so many benefits to it, and if we don't see them, then it will be easier to not only create an unhealthy relationship to working out, but to eating as well. Viewing exercise as a means of creating a healthier self from the inside out and food as a nourishing, pleasurable experience can take you away from a roller coaster lifestyle and into a more meaningful world. Use the gym as a place to earn your strength, not as an obstacle between you and that cupcake by taking into consideration these six mantras. 1. I'm happy and more focused when I'm not starving. life lessons 2. Food is the original “5-hour Energy.” life lessons 3. Naps are more useful than cupcakes. life lessons 4. Guilt helps no one, and it definitely does not help your deadlift. life lessons 5. Life is more fun if you’re not miserable. life lessons 6. Most of us are not eight years old anymore, so we don’t need motivation designed for that age. life lessons Have you been viewing working out as a means to eat whatever you want? And have any mantras turned into lessons for you to switch from the negative to the positive? Source: Eat to Perform

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.

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.
