Is "Crunning" The Next Weird Fitness Craze?

November 24, 2015 2 min read

A whole new way of exercising has emerged in the Chinese city of Zhengzhou and has now started to take over Australia. Similar to crawling, crunning is a whole different way to get your sweat on! It looks odd but it might just work! Crunning involves a crawl like running motion. Keeping your knees off the ground, you run, using your hands to propel you forward. We're exhausted just thinking about it! images (1) Shaun McCarthy, from Northcote in Victoria started the Crunning Facebook page a few weeks back and believes this movement could really take off. He believes that the cult-like popularity and success of fitness movements like cross-fit, has opened up the door and made people more comfortable trying different, unconventional, outside the box, sorts of workouts. McCarthy believes crunning is better than running because, "it’s an opportunity to exercise your upper body as well as your lower body. After half a kilometre you’re slaughtered. It’s really good for the thighs I’ve found. I’m really bulking out,” he said. [bctt tweet="Is "Crunning" The Next Weird Fitness Craze?"] And this full body workout really doesn't require much equipment, with one notable exception: "You really need those gloves," McCarthy says. "Thank God I got them. You certainly wouldn’t want to do it barehanded." We can imagine why! crunning-sanggup-melatih-bagian-atas-dan-bawah-tubuh-sekaligus-_151122000837-942 At the moment, McCarthy just goes crunning with some friends but he hopes the trend takes off internationally. Have you seen any crunning while rocking your outdoor workouts? It certainly, on the surface, seems like it would be an insanely difficult and effective workout. What do you think? Are you brave enough to give it a shot? Source: Mind Body Green All images: Crunning/Facebook

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.

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.
