Diets can range from scarily unhealthy to motivationally great. But there are so many concerns to take into consideration. First off, the word 'diet' alludes to something that is temporary, when in reality, it is a balanced and healthy lifestyle that keeps you on the right track. Secondly, it can be seen as a food fad, where certain foods are incorporated in high qualities, while other healthy ones are left out. It's important to do your research before trying out something new, and in the case of switching up your day-to-day lifestyle, including your diet, it's good to get the facts straight. One of the newest trends in the food world is a high-fat, minimal protein, and zero carb diet called the ketogenic diet. Originally created to treat epilepsy in children, the diet is based on a process called ketosis, where the body is depleted of carbohydrates in order to create energy, since the lack of carbs in the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. Want a simple breakdown? Here are the five facts you should know: 1. Your body needs to make up for the lack of carbs it's consuming. The ketones do this, replacing them as the body’s main energy source. That way, you are running on and burning fat. 2. 80 to 90: This is the approximate percentage of the calories you should consume from fat. The rest, which is very little, should be a combination of protein and carbs. 3. What to eat: High-fat meat including beef, hot dogs ... and bacon. Eat veggies and fruits in moderation,  incorporate nuts and oils, and opt for high-fat dairy like cheese. 4. Along with your body fat being burned off as energy, you can expect to lose water weight, since your intake of water-filled foods like veggies will be low. 5. There are some side effects to watch out for, like weakness, fatigue, stinky B.O. and bad breath. Would you try this diet out? 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 2-3 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.
