Two of these a day fulfills your fruit requirements. 2. Almonds. These are good fats and great for your heart as well as fat burning. Roast them with spice combos for easy and delicious snacking. 3. Broccoli. These little powerhouses are fantastic raw as well as steamed. Vitamin D, vitamin A and vitamin K as well as toxin destroyers and cancer fighters. 4. Low-fat plain yogurt. High protein and probiotic, which means that it's filled with 'good' bacteria, also known as 'live cultures' that can help relieve digestive problems. Add a little honey or fruit if you don't like the tanginess. 5. Tuna. Packed with vitamin B3, vitamin B12, omega-3 fatty acids and protein, low in fat. Awesome antioxidant benefits. 6. Edamame. These are boiled soybeans. Go for non-GMO and you've got a snack that is low-fat, low-calorie, full of protein and fiber, vitamin C and vitamin A and iron. 7.  Cottage cheese. Ghost of mother's diet past! High in protein, calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc. Regulates blood sugar, improves digestion, and is rich in antioxidants. 8. Beef jerky. Instant protein, but go for low in sugar and sodium. 9. Blueberries. One of the highest antioxidant-containing fruits, packed with vitamin K, vitamin C and fiber. Helps muscle recovery after a workout so throw them in your protein shake. 10. Asparagus. Extremely low in calories and works the body to digest it. High in antioxidants. 11. Cheese. Too much is no good, but cheese contains butyric acid, a compound is linked to reduced obesity, reduced hunger and higher metabolism. Use portion control and reap the benefits. 12. Avocados. This superfood plumps cell membranes and speeds up fat burning hormones. 13. Egg Whites. Excellent source of Leucine, an amino acid used for weight loss.

It also reduces hunger by making you feel full. 15. Spinach. Protects against osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer, arthritis and other diseases. 16. Whey protein. Found in many protein supplements, Whey is quickly digested and can help burn an extra 150 to 200 calories per day. 17. Oatmeal. Rich in fat soluble fiber which uses up more energy to burn, this is the perfect metabolism-boosting start to a day. 18. Lean meat. Eating more protein can help boost muscle mass. Lean meat is one way to do that and get a healthy dose of B vitamins as well. How many of these are already on your grocery list? Source: Strength Meets Style

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.
