August 13, 2015 2 min read

Don't let PMS cravings send you straight for the cookies and salty snacks. Stay away from salty and high-sodium foods, which have the opposite effect of what you're looking for. That bag of chips will only prolong your swollen suffering.

Some fish, including salmon, Atlantic mackerel, sardines and herring, are terrific sources of vitamin D. Aside from contributing to calcium absorption, the vitamin D in these fish may act through additional pathways to reduce PMS symptoms. Studies suggest a diet rich in vitamin D may reduce the risk of PMS by about 40 percent. 2) Sweet Potato Well known for its hormone balances affects, sweet potatoes are a great choice with dinner leading up to your period. 3) Raw Chocolate Yes, there is actually a reason why women crave chocolate before they’re period …they need the magnesium! Raw chocolate is one of the richest sources of magnesium and antioxidants on earth! Not only does chocolate taste amazing, but it can make you feel and look amazing too. The trick is moderation, don’t go eating the whole bar at once! 4) Ginger Ginger In China, ginger is an age-old remedy for menstrual cramps. Even before the term 'superfood' was coined, ginger has been enjoyed throughout the ages for its aromatic, pungent flavor and its health promoting properties. 5) Turmeric Tea Potent anti-inflammatory agent. Mix with ginger and/or black pepper to make it 2000x more effective. Keep in mind that you might want to steer clear of cocktails if you're feeling like a downer, as alcohol acts as a depressant and may exacerbate your feelings of sadness.

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 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.

Clothing

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.
