September 13, 2015 2 min read

When it comes to working out, it's hard to get the job done when you don't feel well, and heat can really be both a bother and a danger. Overheating, injuries, dehydration and cramping can all cause you to throw in the towel. But if you're just not ready to let the weather win yet, then take these four tips into consideration to ensure you have a healthier and more pleasurable exercise experience. heat 1. Drink plenty of water Don't just hydrate during your workout. Make sure you've had plenty of liquids prior to training in the heat. “I always advise athletes to drink before an event so their pee looks like lemonade, not apple juice, and not water,” says Dr. Nadya Swedan, MD, FAAPMR, physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist for sports injuries in New York City. 2. Acclimate Hitting up a new environment? Don't go full force just yet. Try to be in the climate you'll be getting active in at least a week prior to training. “You’ll want to methodically increase the duration and intensity of your workouts,” says Andia Winslow, founder of #WinslowWay Conditioning and senior coach, at Mile High Run Club. 3. Be realistic Know what you're getting yourself into. Heat is no joke, so don't treat it that way and land yourself in trouble. “Athletes often get frustrated that they cannot perform as fast or go for as long as they can in comfortable temperatures,” says Erin Ward, instructor at the hot yoga studio Y7 in New York City. Make sure to be patient and take care of any signs of overheating that may arise. 4. Don't ignore cramping Have a cramp in the heat? This may be your body's way of telling you that you're dehydrated, so don't ignore those painful muscle spasms! “Cramping can also be a sign of improper training or an injured muscle,” says Dr. Sweden. heat Have you tried any of these tips to beat the heat and keep your workouts going strong?

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.
