Raw Cacao:Talk about a nutritional powerhouse. Cacao, which is very different from the highly processed cocoa or western version of ‘chocolate’, is incredibly rich in minerals and antioxidants! It comes in many different forms; whole beans, nibs, paste and powder. For ease in basic recipes, I would suggest using the powder or the paste. Look for raw, organic and sustainably sourced cacao. Check out Sacred Chocolate! raw cacao Greens Powder: Some days, we just don’t eat as many green leafy vegetables as we should. We need these deep greens to help alkalinize the body and keep it healthy! Adding some green powder to your smoothies is a wonderful way to pack in a little extra nutrition into your day. I really like the brand Vitamineral Greens! Goji Berries: are the most nutritionally dense fruit on Earth! Native to the Himalayan Mountains of Tibet and Mongolia, these little babies are a complete source of protein, are also loaded with vitamin C, contain more carotenoids than any other food, have twenty-one trace minerals, AND are high in fiber. POW! [caption id="attachment_104370" align="alignnone" width="625"]Red dried goji berries Red dried goji berries[/caption] Maca: Well known for it ability to boost energy, endurance and stamina, the Peruvian root, Maca has been used for centuries as a tonic for sexual function and hormone balancing. It is rich in vitamin B vitamins, C, and E. It provides plenty of calcium, zinc, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and amino acids. It creamy taste goes nicely in energy balls, coconut Macaroons, chocolate elixirs and smoothies! Chia Seeds: Originally cultivated and used by the Aztecs, chia seeds are a complete source of easily digestible, plant-based protein. As well as a great source of essential fatty acids, a rich source of calcium, 3 X more iron than spinach, 15 X more magnesium than broccoli and 64 % more potassium than banana! The insoluble, gelatinous fibre aids digestion and cleanses the digestive tract. Hemp Seeds: They are the most nutritious seed in the world! Hemp Seeds are also a complete protein and just the right balance of essential fatty acids. Raw hemp provides a broad spectrum of health benefits and are perfect to throw on top of salads, soups, in energy balls and smoothies! Medicinal Mushrooms: This is actually a whole family of different mushrooms that have more healing powers than say the mushrooms used in food. Some of my favourites are Chaga, Reishi, Lions Mane and Cordyceps! Four Sigma Foods does an awesome job of making these ancient healers accessible to the modern day masses. You just add hot water! Check them out! Now that you know what they are I be you are wondering what the heck to do with them! Here are my suggestions: smoothies, smoothie bowls, elixirs, trail mixes, puddings, parfaits, porridges, energy balls, warm nut milks etc. You can even mix superfoods like spirulina or chlorella into a fresh pressed juice! I suggest experimenting with adding some to your morning smoothies first and see how you like it! Do you follow us on Instagram?

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.
