The Key To a Healthier, Sexier You is H2O

June 18, 2015 2 min read

According to an American study, water has come up in the ranks to be the second most popular drink consumed by the nation. It is second in line to soft drinks. This is slightly disturbing, as water is the key to unlocking a healthier, fitter and more hydrated lifestyle. Water is our life force. As human beings, we need to drink water to survive. But drinking beyond the bare minimum will also help us to thrive.

You should be consuming eight cups of water each day. If you are highly active, than you should be consuming even more. Drinking water maintains a healthy balance of fluids within our bodies. This means it balances our digestion system, saliva creation, nutrient absorption and our circulatory system.

It has been proven that water can help control your caloric intake. Choosing non-caloric beverages like water, and water rich foods like celery and beans, can curb your cravings and help you actually lose weight.

Water can even help energize your muscles and prevent muscle fatigue. This is why it is so important to stay hydrated when working out. It is recommended to drink 17 ounces of water about 2 hours before an intense workout and keep replenishing yourself with water during and after.

Your kidneys and bowels also rely on water to maintain their critical functions. Kidneys need to flush out toxins and cleanse your system, while your bowels require hydration to prevent constipation and keep properly expelling waste.

Drinking more water is easy. Remind yourself to have a glass with every snack and meal. Keep a bottle of water with you at work, school and in your car. Buy refillable water bottles and add lemon and fruits to make it more flavourful. Boost your consumption of fruits and vegetables by adding it to water.

In what ways have you increased your water intake?

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.
