Carbs aren't all that popular in a lot of health circles these days. From the Paleo lovers who keep most carbs at bay unless they're such types as sweet potatoes, bananas or plantains, and only to be consumed as fuel for workouts, to Keto eaters who avoid them altogether, they've been given a bad rap in terms of achieving weight loss success. And then there are just the health aficionados in general who will shake their heads at you if you're eating carbs for dinner. What's up with that? It's time to learn the truth about how and when you should actually be consuming your carbs. https://www.instagram.com/p/BI3YC1pBFxV/?taken-by=bodyrockofficial Carb Up For Better Sleep Need a good night's sleep? A 2011 study confirmed that consuming carbs in the evening makes way for a sleepy self. Researchers also found that when mice were given carbs later in the day, their circadian clocks (in charge of regulating daily behaviours and biology in humans) actually reset. Schedule Your Carb Time Research has found that those who late-night snack end up gaining weight. How can you avoid being a part of that group? Include a small portion of healthy carbs in your dinner to fill you up and provide you with your final fuel of the day. Eat Carbs, Lose Weight Toss out your snacking habits and incorporate carbs at the right time to lose weight. A study conducted in 2011 supports this idea. In 2011, 78 obese members of the Israeli Police Force helped bust a myth on consuming carbs in the evening. In the study, one group consumed a low-calorie diet with 45 to 50 percent carb intake, most being eaten at dinnertime. The other group spread their carb intake out by eating them throughout the day. The former group lost an average of 6 pounds more than the latter. Carb lovers take note. Make The Right Choice Before you go buy buckets of starchy carbs, remember that these findings only support quality carbs like quinoa, whole grain bread, beans and sweet potatoes. For some ideas on how to stick with the healthy carbs, check out the BodyRock Meal Plan. More than just a month long menu planner, this plan comes with a detailed nutrition guide and an added recipe book with over 70 offerings! Are you a carb lover? How do you incorporate them into your daily diet? Source: Inside Fitness

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.
