If you think you have to log serious hours at the gym before your body will begin to reap the benefits, you are mistaken! The human body is endowed with an incredible ability to adapt and can do so after even one day. This means that after just one week of exercise, even if you haven't worked out in ages, your body will start to change! We are not saying that it will be easy or that you will get the tight, toned body of your dreams after one week, but you WILL feel better.


Here are 6 wonderful things you will start to notice after week:

1. You will be sore.

Trust us on this one, this is a good thing! When you work out, you create tiny tears in the muscles which creates the pain and inflammation you experience. When the muscle repairs and rebuilds, it comes back stronger than it was before. The soreness should only last a day or two and while you repair, you can celebrate the fact that you are literally feeling your body get stronger.

2. You will find clarity.

A good workout increase blood flow and oxygen to the brain. This means that your brain will perform better, increasing alertness and focus. Fitting in a quick cardio session the night before a big presentation at work or an important interview can help you get in the right place, mentally.

3. Your skin will glow.

The increased blood flow experienced during exercise can help your body get rid of waste products like free radicals which will give you that gorgeous post-workout glow. Sweating also helps to clear out your pores -- just remember to wash your skin after.

4. Life will be easier.

Exercising teaches your body to use oxygen more efficiently. This will lower your heart rate, increasing your heart's strength and making sightly strenuous tasks feel easier over time. This is good news! Where you once struggled to walk the five flights of stairs to the office, it now feels like a breeze!

5. You will make healthier choices.

You notice that you start to crave healthier foods -- or at least you have fewer cravings for unhealthy foods. Exercise is an expression of self care and the more of it you do, the more this attitude will seep into other areas of your life. If you are loving yourself enough to work out, you will also love yourself enough to nourish your body the way it needs. If you'd like to make these healthy food options feel even easier, have a look at the BodyRock Meal Plan. 30 days of healthy, delicious and easy to prepare meals and snacks right at your fingertips!

6. You will have sweet dreams.

If you find you have a difficult time falling asleep at night, you might notice this as being the first area positively impacted by your exercise routine. You will experience a more restful sleep because your body demands it for recovery. Imagine the sense of satisfaction and accomplishment you will feel when you flop into bed after a long day that included a solid workout and healthy food choices! What positive changes did you notice immediately after starting your workout routine?

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
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.
