You knew working out could be fun, right? It doesn't have to feel like a chore! For most of us, daily life is full of to-do lists, work tasks, errands, friends, family and hopefully a little down time. With such jam packed schedules, it can be easy to think of the gym as one more thing to do. But you make yourself go. You get on that treadmill and you begrudgingly run for 30 minutes, watching that clock the whole time, praying it would just end. Or, you get bored and decide to call it quits early, filling yourself with guilt. It is not a secret to anyone that improving your fitness through cardiovascular exercise and strength training is the key to a long and healthy life. It can reduce your risk of many life threatening illnesses. But, it can also be fun. inpost3   So, stop thinking about exercise as something you have to do. Change your mindset and follow a few little tips and you'll be thinking of exercise as something you want to be doing. Keep this in mind: if you enjoy your workouts, you're more likely to stick with them which is the only way they can improve your health. Consistency is everything. [bctt tweet="Here's Why You Need To Drop The "30 Minutes Or Bust" Gym Mentality"] https://www.instagram.com/p/BIvCGTrBDaQ/?taken-by=bodyrockofficial Set A Timer Forget the idea that if you don't have at least 30 minutes, it isn't worth doing. Look at your schedule and if you only have 10 minutes to devote to your workout, than kill those 10 minutes. Hop on the treadmill, stationary bike or elliptical and bust out some intervals. It doesn't take a lot of time for your body to see improvements. If you've only got 5 minutes, no problem. Bust out some squats, push-ups and planks. Anything you can do is better than doing nothing. Give yourself permission to be outside the box here. Getting fit isn't about showing up for a certain amount of time. It is about showing up, period. Look at the time you do have, set a timer and break a sweat. Switch It Up If you can't remember the last time you tried something new in your routine, it may be time. Ask yourself what you really want to be doing for exercise. You don't have to stick to the same cardio equipment you've been using since you joined the gym. Basically, don't be afraid to ask yourself what you'd like to do instead of sticking to what you've always done. If your current routine doesn't get you excited, then mix it up. At BodyRock, we've just made it so much easier for you to step outside of your comfort zone! With SweatFlix℠, you'll have access to over 80 hours of on demand workouts. From beginner to advanced, bootcamps to yoga, we've got everything you could want! And with new and exclusive content being added all the time, you'll always be able to find something to suit your fancy! inpost2   Remember That You’re Human Things happen in life. Sometimes your best intentions are thwarted by other demands. It happens. Sometimes you have to skip a workout, sometimes you have to cut one short. No worries, tomorrow is another day. Your goal should be to make the most of whatever time you do have. Have fun with the process. If you find yourself feeling weighed down by "should dos," let go. Approach your fitness routines with a "get to do" attitude instead of a "should do" and you'll not only find it easier to pull off, you'll have more fun when you do. Exercise is a choice, one you've already made, so now make the choice to enjoy it! How do you keep your workouts from feeling like chore? Source: Women's Health

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.
