Sun and Sleep, Health Benefits

June 28, 2013 2 min read

Now that it is officially summer, I would like to discuss the benefits of the two greatest things of summer: Sun and Sleep! TDHVitaminD&SleepPostSun The Sun! We all know that in the summer season, it is the strongest. Vitamin D has been known to improve muscle function, protect your lungs, lower blood pressure, decreases appetite, and can help fight fat. Vitamin D has also been known to help with muscle recovery from daily workouts, which is great for us daily hiit-ers! A great way to get natural Vitamin D is through sun exposure and through eating these kinds of  fortified foods: fish, cod liver oil, milk, eggs, fruits, and veggies Even though increased sun exposure is the best way for the body to synthesize vitamin D naturally, remember to always protect your skin with sun screen!

SLEEP! We all know that sleep is super important to our bodies to recharge and recover, but sleep also does a lot more. Sleep improves memory, curbs inflammation, improves your fitness performance, repairs and builds muscle proteins, and helps you have a healthy body weight. Try not to vigorously workout within 2-3 hours of going to sleep and try not to watch t.v. or use the computer. These make it harder for the brain to fall asleep. Try something more relaxing like an Epsom salt bath for sore muscles, reading a good book, or listening to music.

The greatest things about summer is more sleep and more sun, but moderation is always key! In order to optimize your body, these are key essentials in your fitness and diet plans. If you have more questions about Vitamin D and deficiency always talk with your physician.

Thanks for reading :)

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 4-6 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.
