Like most people, you probably don't think much about your social media usage. You likely log on, browse, chat, do what you do, log off and go about the rest of your business. But, it turns out, your social media platform of choice can say a lot about your health and fitness habits. A large scale study from Civic Science, polled  423,302 Americans users of Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and Tumblr, asking them a whole whack of questions about their social media habits. They then matched those users up with questions they had answered in previous surveys and learned some really unexpected details! Here is some of what they found: Overall Findings: Pinterest users were the healthiest. Instagram and Snapchat were tied for second and bringing up the rear were Tumblr and Twitter -- also locked in a tie. Snapchat users:
  • They are more likely to exercise regularly.
  • They are more likely to work out at a gym
  • They are the least likely to eat healthy
Pinterest users:
  • They are more likely to read the nutritional information on the food they buy. In fact, they are 17% more likely to do so than the general population.
  • They are marginally more likely to take vitamins and nutritional supplements on a regular basis.
  • They are the most likely to buy locally-grown food.
  • They are the most likely to use reusable shopping bags.

  • They are more likely to be non-smokers.
  • They are more likely to buy environmentally friendly products
Tumblr users:
  • They are more likely to recycle.
While there are lots of things that could account for these results, like the average age and gender of the users, they are still kind of interesting! Maybe if you are looking to start eating better, you might want to consider making Pinterest your platform of choice (or check out the BodyRock Meal Plan)! Want to develop a gym routine? Hop on Snapchat (or stream on demand workouts with SweatFlix℠)! Sure, at the end of the end of the day, those choices are up to you and not the social media platform you choose but it can't hurt, right? What do you think of these results? Do the ring true based on your own experiences? Source: Women's Health

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
