Are you really fat or just bloated?

Do you often wonder why your weight varies so much even when you're eating what you think is a balanced diet?  Well, it turns out that there are many factors to consider that make up the number on the scale.  Pause the negative self talk and consider: Time of weigh in You are at your lightest in the morning when you rise.  Why? Because you (hopefully) have not eaten for the hours you were asleep, natural respiration during sleep  caused you to lose some water weight and finally your body breaks down tiny amounts of muscle while asleep. Alternatively,  you will be at your heaviest in the evening after  a day's worth of meals. Your actual body composition Have you had your a body fat tested recently? If not, then you might want to consider it soon. Body fat testing procedures like the skin fold test measure the ratio of lean muscle to body fat and will tell you within a close range the percentage of of body fat you have. Visit  an experienced and professional trainer to get yours tested with a caliper ( best lay-person's method) then click hereto see the range for body fat percentages and what they mean. Your diet before weigh in  You would be surprised by how much extra fluid your body can retain due to a diet High in salt: Eating meals away from home and buying packaged foods are the 2 main culprits for a salty diet which leads  to the dreaded "salt bloat". Fix: Make your own meals, save dining out for special occasions and read all food labels. Here is handy guide for recommended salt intake. Low in fiber: A diet low in fruit and vegetables is the main reason for low fiber which can keep you irregular. Improving regularity ensures proper waste elimination and waste eliminations means a flatter belly. Fix: Make an effort to get 2 servings of fruit and 3-5 servings of vegetables on daily basis. Low in water: Dehydration can not only leave you feeling sluggish but it can also cause your body to hold on to its water reserves more tightly which = bloat. Fix:Aim to drink 8-10 cups of water daily.  Not only will the water help to aid in the  digestion of the added fiber you're eating but when properly hydrated you will naturally excrete excess salt and toxins. So about that scale... it might be a good idea to put it away until  you know all of the facts about your particular diet and personal body composition.

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 1-2 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 1-2 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.
