Nutrition Data Snap Chats

June 03, 2013 2 min read

When you start out on you fitness journey, you're not necessarily thinking about nutrition data or anything that is associated with it. If you are that's great, if you're not, here is a little nutrition data that will help you make better choices nutritionally.

Too Good to Be True?

Fila USA™ claims their Toning Resistance Tight Capri exercise pants for women “streamline the figure”, provide “41% more support” and can enhance strength training workouts by 50% - but do they really work. According to a study conducted by the American Council on Exercise, the answer is a resounding no. While participants in the study report feeling like the pants made exercise significantly more challenging, the scientific results conclude very minimal benefits. There was a mere 2% increase in VO2, and only tiny boost in caloric expenditure (0.09 more Kcal per minute that’s about half a peanut M&M). There was absolutely no significant difference in regards to heart rate. This said, they do streamline your figure, so if you need a confidence boost to motivate your workout, these may be the pants for you.

The Heart/Brain Correlation

Dutch researchers have found that what’s bad for your heart is also bad for your brain. The recent study surveyed almost 3,800 people between the ages of 35 and 82. All participants were checked for heart disease risks (i.e. smoking, diabetes, high levels of LDL - ‘bad cholesterol) and also tested on memory and mental agility (i.e. ability to plan, reason, move between tasks.) Turns out participants with the highest risk for heart disease did 50% worse on mental tests than the participants with the lowest risk. These findings were consistent among all age groups.

Beat the Bloat...Naturally

Feeling the effects of burrito night? Hit up some cilantro. Both the leaves and seeds of this helpful little herb can be used to aid in digestion, relieve intestinal gas, pain and distention. Try this: Throw some cilantro in your scrambled eggs for a high-protein, gas fighting meal. The lemony zing is also a great addition to salads and meat seasonings.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
