When it comes to losing fat, people often have a few questions and how long your workout needs to be is often among them. There is this idea floating around that you have to log at least an hour a day at the gym for your workout  to even really matter. The more you do and the longer you work, the better it has to be, right? Well, not necessarily. Think about it, most of us don't have the time to be spending a few hours a day at the gym. And as soon as life gets busy, the first thing you are going to give up is that gym time. You may be wanting to know if short workouts really count! First, remember that some activity is better than no activity. Most people don't give themselves enough credit! Making time to work out at all is already more than what many people are doing! inpost [bctt tweet="Are Longer Workouts Better Than Shorter Ones When It Comes To Fat Loss?"] If you find yourself taking a pass on the gym completely when you don't have at least a full hour to give it, we're here to tell you that longer isn't necessarily better. The type of workout you do is what will have a big impact on your body's fat loss capabilities. If you were to work out for an hour and only focus on one muscle group, it wouldn't be as effective as working out for 30 minutes and focusing on two or three muscle groups. This is where high intensity interval training (HIIT) comes into play. In anywhere from 10-20 minutes, you can get an intense workout that will continue to burn calories long after you are done! By upping the intensity and incorporating resistance training and body weight exercises, you'll be using several large muscle groups at any given time and getting the most bang for your buck. Are you ready to give this type of workout a try? At BodyRock, we've made it possible for you to bust out a short workout in any place, at any time. That's right, with Sweatflix℠: BodyRock on Demand, you can access over 66 hours of BodyRock workout content with new things being added every week! You will get exclusive workouts and a whole host of other fun things! Trust us, with Sweatflix℠, you'll never be bored! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvayTjck1HA None of this is to say that you should be giving up your longer workouts. High intensity workouts are just that, intense. They take a serious amount of effort and energy. When you have time to give to your workout, like on the weekends for example, do your longer, lower intensity work. Let your mind take a rest while you go for a run. Save those short intense workouts for when you are pressed for time and have the energy to push yourself 100%. Remember, no two people are the same. What works for one, may not work for you. Have fun with this idea, play around and see what makes your body feel and look its best. It may take some time for you to sort it all out but once you find what works, you'll be grateful for the effort. What exercises work best for you? Are you all HIIT, all the time or do you prefer a combination of workout types?

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.
