You've been working out on the regular and made it to the point where exercise is a non-negotiable part of your day. Congratulations, that's half the battle! When it comes to making lifestyle changes, making them routine is often the most difficult part. But now, it might be time to take your workout to the next level. We've said it before, if you want to burn fat and build lean muscle, you need to add weight and resistance to your routine. One simple way to do that is through the BodyRock Weighted Vest. Without impacting your range of motion, it will increase the resistance in every move you make. Building muscle helps to boost your metabolism, increasing your calorie burn. There is no need to be afraid of adding weight to your workout. Weights are essential tools for building a toned physique but where do you even begin? How much is too much and how do you know if it isn't enough? inpost2 One of the best places to start is with some dumbbells or hand held weights. Most people begin with between 5 and 10 pounds. Here is how you know where to start: grab a set of weights and think of an exercise you feel comfortable performing. Do 10 to 15 reps of that exercise with good form. If you feel like you can do more than 15 reps, and keep your form, than you need a heavier weight. [bctt tweet="How To Pick The Right Size Weight For Your Workout"] If you are already incorporating weights into your routine, you may be wondering how to tell when it is time to increase the weight. If you can perform 15 to 20 reps on any one exercise and it feels pretty easy, it's time to add weight. Perform the aforementioned rep test with your new weights to determine whether or not you've found the right amount.   And remember, you don't have to use the same weight on every exercise. You may require heavier weight for your bicep curls and lesser weight for your tricep extensions. That's okay. Don't be afraid to grab more than one set of weights and do what works for you. If you get into your routine and find the weight you are using to be too heavy, it is okay to stop and dial it back a little bit. Your goal should be to challenge your body but not to injure it. Don't forget that completing your reps with proper form is the most important thing of all.

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.
