Your Cart is Empty

December 01, 2015 2 min read

While crushing a workout is the best way to burn calories, how many people actually stick with it each and every time they say they will? So many of us are tied up in earning a living that making time for the gym seems impossible. So, when the day comes that you find yourself unable to make time for that workout, forgive yourself first -- you're only human, and try these crazy calorie burning methods. It is better than just doing nothing, right?

1. Laughing

Have you ever noticed that when you laugh continuously for 10 minutes your stomach hurts? That's because getting a case of giggles can burn 20-40 calories!

2. Shopping

Pushing a shopping cart is better exercise than you might think. It can burn about 100 calories and the best part is, the more you put in the cart, the more calories you will burn. That major grocery run doesn't seem so bad now, does it?

3. Kissing

Kissing can torch 2-4 calories. The more passionate the kiss, the more calories you will burn!

4. Green Foods

Green foods are great weight loss helpers. To burn calories eat raw celery, kale, spinach and cucumber. These green veggies are known to be fat-burning foods.

5. Walking Your Pet

Not only will your pet be happy to go for a walk with you, you will burn some calories. A 30-minute walk can burn 100 calories! [bctt tweet="Crazy, Interesting Ways To Burn Calories Over The Course Of A Day!"]

6. Chew Gum

Chewing gum can burn you 11 calories an hour! While that doesn't seem like much, it can add up over the course of the day! Make sure you are chewing sugarless gum, however, or this math won't work.

7. Texting

Constant texting can burn 40 calories an hour! While it may mean the death of social skills, it could help your waistline!

8. Winter Weight Loss

This may or may not come as a shock to you but you burn more calories in the winter! Because we are more likely to eat hot and spicy food in the winter, which help to burn fat, you are more likely to burn calories just sitting and eating in the winter than you are in the summer.

9. Hug

Hugs are a great way to show you care. They are also a great way to burn 70 calories an hour!

10. Lovemaking

Why stop at hugging and kissing? In 30 minutes of active s*x, you can burn 200 calories! While not as effective as going to the gym, those are certainly enjoyable ways to burn calories!

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.


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.
