For some people, it may seem impossible to wake up with the sun and feel alive in the early hours of the a.m. But becoming a fit morning person can be easier than you think. It is also very rewarding from a fitness perspective, as early risers have been known to burn more calories than those who wait until later on to exercise. Here are the 7 secrets that every morning person knows about waking up right!

#1 Keep Organized

Often times your mornings are rushed and your searching for your workout clothes with one eye half shut. This frantic frenzy is a huge waste of time and energy. Lay out your clothes the night before in an orderly fashion and keep all your workout essentials by the door. You can even wear a part of your workout outfit to bed!

#2 Have Your Gear Ready

Make sure your gear is easily accessible and placed in a manner that reminds you it's time to workout. Leave your weights by the TV so you can do some lifting while you catch your favourite morning talk show. Have your phone in a speaker dock with a fully loaded fitness playlist ready to go or your yoga mat by the window for some totally zen sunrise stretches.

#3 Eat Breakfast

Working out on an empty stomach wreaks havoc on your metabolism and leads to exhaustion. Prep a morning snack the night before and stash it in the fridge for when you're on-the-go. The most important meal of the day also needs to be a healthy one! Make sure you choose fresh fruit, oatmeal, yogurt or a nourishing smoothie to pump up your energy levels and fuel your body.

#4 Say 'Goodnight' At A Reasonable Hour

Going to bed early means you wake up early! If you're a night owl, try to train your body by going to bed half an hour earlier each night. Make sure to switch off your phone and laptop an hour before bed. This will help relax your mind and help you fall asleep easier. In the morning, rise to an upbeat alarm that gets you excited about the day! Place your alarm on the opposite side of the room so you have to get out of bed to turn it off.

#5 Schedule Workouts

Make a fitness date with a friend that you can't miss, join an early morning aerobics or boxing class, and pay for it ahead of time. This will make you more inclined not to skip out on your workout. And you don't have to have huge chunks of available time to make this work! With over 80 hours of on demand workouts available on SweatFlix℠, you can squeeze in a sweat session first thing with ease. With new content being added all the time, you'll never be bored and always have a short, intense workout right at your finger tips!

#6 Get Excited

Motivate yourself to wake up and seize your workout by giving yourself an incentive. Make an awesome workout playlist that you can only listen to during your morning run so you feel inspired to jump out of bed. Pick out cute gym clothes that you can't wait to rock or schedule a class that really gets you pumped!

#7 Treat Yourself

Plan a delicious breakfast to make after you smash your workout. The thought of this reward will really push you through your exercise routine! You can also treat yourself by setting a goal (ex. to workout for 1 hour, 5 days a week for 3 weeks). Hit that goal and you can reward yourself by taking a trip to the spa or buying that beautiful pair of stilettos you've been eyeing. What are your secrets to getting fit in the morning?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
