Exercise is an important part of living a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle. And whether you're the type of person that does it just to blow off some steam, because you genuinely enjoy it, or because you know it's good for you and you're trying to slim down, there are so many forms to take part in. But, often times, we get biased on our routines. Maybe we're just used to one type and don't want to bother with trying anything new. Perhaps we've found a workout that actually works to help lose weight. Then there's those of us who want to try the newest trend because it's fun to mix it up, and we're fitness fanatics who can't be bogged down by too much routine. Whatever the case, we're constantly being told by outside sources that one thing is better than the other. And sometimes, that that one thing we actually like isn't doing us any good. Really? Running makes you fat?! There are so many misconceptions to exercise. Rutgers exercise scientist Shawn Arent gives us some insight on two of the biggest ones: 1. Lifting weights makes you bulk up. "I think one [misconception] is if you lift weights you'll get big and bulky," Arent says. "It's just not true; you get so many health benefits from it. Women in particular tend to say. 'oh I don't want to  get that big.' You don't have the hormones to support getting that big. And especially if you're doing a lot of aerobic exercise, it's not going to happen. You're not going to get that big and bulky ..." 2. Cardio is bad for you. "It's almost like cardio has become the carbs of the fitness world ... like it was 'don't eat carbs they're bad for you,' and all the sudden it's like 'don't do cardio.' Cardio is good for you! And this is coming from somebody who doesn't like to do cardio. I'm more on the power and strength side — bodybuilding and stuff, that's me. But cardio's important, and cardio has a lot of health benefits." Now that you know these things are definitely assets to your fitness regime, why not follow a program that combines the two? For over 115 hours of real time, on demand, workouts check out SweatFlix℠!

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.
