How To Torch Fat From Your Body (And Keep It Off!)

January 26, 2016 3 min read

So often people talk about beginning a fitness journey in an effort to lose 'weight.' That is a worthwhile goal but it is also a bit of a complicated one. Your weight is probably one of the least accurate ways to measure your success. As you build lean muscle, you are actually likely to end up weighing more. A better way to talk about your journey is in terms of fat loss. Focusing on fat loss allows you to pay closer attention to how your body looks and feels instead of an easily fluctuating number on the scale. If fat loss is your aim, there are two things to keep in mind. They are how you exercise and what you eat. inpost

Work smart, not hard when it comes to exercise.

Your workouts don't need to go on for hours. If you include weight training and HIIT (high intensity interval training) style workouts you will be burning through your fat and building lean muscle before you know it. HIIT training is great because it elevates your metabolism and continues to burn calories after you've stopped working out. One of the best parts about HIIT workouts is the time commitment. You could be getting a fat blasting, body sculpting workout in under 30 minutes! Who doesn't love that idea? If you're looking for a short but effective routine, check out SweatFlix℠. With SweatFlix℠, you can choose from over 100 hours of on demand workouts in the largest library of workout videos anywhere!

Eat the right stuff.

It doesn't matter how hard you work out. If you are not eating properly, you will not see the results you would like. If you'd like to eat food that will help you burn more fat, follow these simple guidelines:
  • Eat enough to fuel your body. Starving yourself will not help you lose fat. It might work when you first try it but it will all come back once you begin to eat normally again. It is important to eat enough food to maintain metabolic functioning and to provide your body with the nutrients it needs. Undereating can actually cause your body to believe it is starving which leads to an increased storage of fat. Try to eat regularly, in small amounts. And don't forget that complex carbohydrates can be your friend. They help you to absorb protein which is good for building lean muscle. The more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn.

  • Eat whole foods. Packaged and processed foods have next to no nutritional value when compared to whole foods. They are also full of chemicals and additives that may be doing your body some serious harm. When choosing what you put in your body, try to choose foods that are as close to their natural state as possible. Doing this will provide your body and all of its cells with what it needs not only for energy but for healing, recovery and basic functioning. Stick to lean proteins, complex carbs, vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds. For more information on clean eating, you can check out our Body Rock Meal Plan! This plans include weekly grocery lists and 30 days worth of delicious and easy to prepare meals and snacks! All you have to do is shop and prep!

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.
