No matter how many years you've been working out, the difference between a good and bad workout can lie in the preparation. Think about it: if you aren't prepared -- mentally, emotionally, or physically -- you won't be able to give all you've got to your workout! blog3192 Use these tips to make sure you are on top of your game, each and every time you workout!

1. Have a plan

Before you hit the gym, know what you'll be doing. Nothing stands in the way of progress quite like wandering around, scratching your head and thinking "gee, where should I begin?" Eliminate confusion before you begin! If planning isn't your strong suit, let someone else do it for you! With Sweatflix℠, you will have access to over 115 hours of BodyRock workouts to suit all fitness levels and enough variety that you will never get bored! You can easily take these workouts anywhere you go. Take them with you on vacation or take your sweat session outdoors! Learn more here!

2. Get the right gear

Always dress for the occasion. Wear clothing that is suitable to the workout you are going to be doing. If it is warm, wear clothes that will breathe. If it is cooler, wear an extra layer or two that you can easily remove should you get too warm. It is also important to make sure that your clothes won't chafe. Check the seams to make sure they won't rub you the wrong way and try to find material that won't leave you soaked in sweat (Looking for new gear? Head here!). You want clothes that will allow you a full range of motion. You don't want to get to yoga class only to find out that your pants make Warrior One impossible! When it comes to footwear, look for something that will offer you good support and the proper traction for surface you'll be working on. unspecified

3. Fuel your body

Your body needs fuel to function at its best in all activities but this is especially true of your workouts. Be sure to grab a small snack before you start your sweat session. A good pre-workout snack consists of carbs and a bit of protein. If you've had a large meal, it is best to give yourself a few hours to digest. You don't want to feel sluggish or sick in the middle of your workout.

4. Don't forget the water!

Staying hydrated is essential. When you sweat, your body is losing water so be sure that you drink lots before your workout and keep some on hand during. If you've had a particularly tough workout, be sure to drink lots of water afterward! Dehydration does scary things to your body! inpost

5. Build your playlist

Sometimes working out feels like a chore. Keep yourself motivated with a killer playlist. Whether it is heart pumping tunes or an incredibly interesting podcast, keep your iPod loaded and you'll be sure to nip boredom in the bud. Take a little time to curate a playlist, trust us, it is worth it!

6. Psych yourself up

Whatever it takes to pump yourself up, do it! Whether you post positive affirmations on your bathroom mirror or set a motivational reminder on your phone, fill yourself with good vibes and positive intentions. You are strong. You are powerful. You are capable. Now, get out there and smash that workout! How do you prepare for a workout? We love to hear what BodyRockers are up to! Share your tips with us!

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.
