Any kind of exercise, done regularly and consistently, will yield you weight loss results. But, if you are looking to maximize your efforts (and who doesn't want to do that?), adding some of these moves to your current routine could see your calorie burning potential  rise significantly! The following exercises are ranked in order of effectiveness and their calorie burn estimates have been based on the averages for someone weighing 125 pounds and someone weighing 185 pounds. Remember, the more you weigh, the more calories you will burn in these exercises. And don't worry, we didn't forget that added bonus -- the 'afterburn effect.'  New York City-based trainer Noam Tamir, C.S.C.S., owner of  TS Fitness, has suggestions for how these exercises can be modified to enhance that afterburn and keep you burning calories long after your workout is complete. Are you ready? The Exercise: Jumping rope (120 skips per minute) Calories burned: 667-990 calories/hour Get the bonus burn: Use a weighted rope to engage your arms and shoulders even more. The Exercise: Running (10min/mile) Calories burned: 566-839/hour Get the bonus burn: Add short bursts of sprints or faster running into your jog, says Tamir. He suggests keeping things at a 2:1 work-to-rest ratio. That is 60 seconds of running, followed by 30 seconds of walking. The Exercise: Kettlebell intervals Calories burned: 554-822 calories/hour Get the bonus burn: If you do HIIT exercises using a kettlebell, you see an afterburn that lasts up to 36 hours says Tamir! For best results, make sure you are doing a fluid circuit and not stopping for rests in between. Try alternating between upper and lower body exercises so you can work out for longer periods of time. The Exercise: Kickboxing Calories burned: 582-864 calories/hour Get the bonus burn: Whether you are kickboxing at home or in a class, try to keep your rest periods short. Aim for 30 seconds of rest for every 90 seconds of work. [bctt tweet="The 9 Best Exercises For Weight Loss Ranked In Order Of Effectiveness "] INPOST1 (4) The Exercise: Stationary bike (at a vigorous pace) Calories burned: 498-738 calories/hour Get the bonus burn: Tamir suggests you start with 10 seconds of intense pedaling and 50 seconds of rest. Then, move to 15 seconds of sprints and 45 seconds of rest. After that, do 20 seconds of sprints 40 seconds of rest. He also says you shouldn't be afraid to increase the resistance as you progress. The Exercise: Rowing machine (150 watts) Calories burned:  481-713 calories/hour Get the bonus burn: To get the most of this exercise, row super fast for one minute intervals and then 30-60 seconds of active rest by doing squats, push-ups or planks. The Exercise:  Stairs (77 steps/minute) Calories burned: 452-670 calories/hour Get the bonus burn: Stairs are a great aerobic and anaerobic exercise. To boost it a little, hold a one- to five-pound dumbbell in each hand to engage your upper body. The Exercise:  Elliptical Calories burned: 322-478 calories/hour Get the bonus burn: Challenge yourself and get more of a burn by changing up the incline and resistance levels during the workout. The Exercise: Power Yoga Calories burned: 226-335 calories/hour Get the bonus burn: “Strength-driven practices, where you match the breath with the movement, is where you would have the most afterburn,” says Tamir.

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.
