Your Cart is Empty

Life is good. You've just met one of your fitness goals and you want to celebrate! And rightfully so! Meeting, and/or surpassing, a goal  is  something to be proud of! But if your celebration plans include eating a some chocolate cake or downing a tray of frozen margaritas, you may want to reconsider. Rewarding yourself with calorie laden treats can be a bit of a nightmare. If you've cleaned up your diet, reducing your consumption of processed, simple carbohydrates, reintroducing them at this point can wreak havoc on your gut. Furthermore, do you really want to be filling up on empty calories when you've been work so hard to burn them off? blog2275   Why not try a healthier reward? Taking a little time to just treat yourself right, to do something nice for yourself, can be one of the greatest rewards imaginable. Here are our tried, and tested, suggestions:

1. Take a hot bath

A simple suggestion isn't necessarily a bad suggestion! Do it up right. Fill your tub, maybe a little bubble bath or some bath salts. Light some candles, play some quiet tunes and just luxuriate. Stay in the tub for as long as you wish. This is your time.

2. Window shop

Take a walk downtown by all the stores you love but never actually shop in. Imagine all the places you'd wear those incredible designer clothes! If you are feeling particularly pleased with yourself, go in and try a few things on! Whether it is expensive shoes or a ball gown, have some fun! unspecified

3. Grab some new gear

Why not make your next workout even better by getting some new gear? Nothing feels better than knowing you still look sharp while you drip in sweat! Or, maybe you don't need new workout clothes but have been eyeing some workout equipment. Treat yourself! Maybe it is time for a weighted vest or some Challenger Bars. Imagine the heights you can reach with these additions! [bctt tweet="7 Ways To Reward Yourself (That Don't Include Food)!"]

4. Learn a new dance

Sign yourself up for a dance class. Don't have a tango partner? Grab a friend or fly solo. Dance classes are a great way to stay active and meet new people. And, most importantly, they are FUN! Think you have two left feet and don't want to try this one in public? YouTube is your friend. Grab some pals, clear the living room floor, and throw on some music videos. MJ's "Thriller" zombie dance, anyone? blog2368  

5. Put clean sheets on the bed

Simple, we know. But think about it. Is there anything that feels better than crawling into a freshly made bed? This is even better if you've got outdoor space and are able to hang your sheets on the clothesline first. Nothing is more relaxing than the smell of fresh air!

6. Listen to your favorite tunes

We don't just mean the music everyone knows you like. We mean those songs that make you smile from the bottom of your heart but you're embarrassed to admit to liking. Don't be shy about it, this is your celebration. So whether you are blaring it at home or in the car, sing and dance loudly and proudly. Who doesn't secretly like Billy Joel's "Uptown Girl?"

7. Take a day off

Like, a real day off. Don't do a single thing. Sleep in, then take a nap in the afternoon. Go for meandering walks around the neighborhood. Play video games. Watch Netflix. Facebook creep your high school crush. Be as unproductive as possible! Taking time for yourself and doing what makes you happy is one of the greatest rewards imaginable. You will feel wonderful from the inside out! No guilt, no "getting back on track." You can stay true to your lifestyle AND celebrate your progress! We want to know, how do you celebrate your achievements?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours 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.
