The quality of your workout can hinge on how you fuel your body. If you aren't putting the right things into it, it will be impossible to get the right things out of it. So what is the best possible pre- or post-workout snack? You're in luck, it is likely already in your kitchen! It may not be the first thing you think of, since it can be high in calories, but peanut butter is an absolute powerhouse when it comes to giving your body what it needs to function at its best! [bctt tweet="The Best Workout Snack? You'll Never Guess What It Is!"] Obviously, with around 180-210 calories per serving, peanut butter should be used in moderation. But, when you get down to it, the other benefits far outweigh the calorie cost. Besides, peanut butter could help your regulate your intake of other calories since it helps fill you up and keep you feeling fuller for longer periods of time! This delicious nut butter provides a great energy boost and so it is also a perfect way to start your day or your workout! Carrying 8 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber, peanut butter can also help to curb food cravings by keeping blood sugar levels in check. The best part about it is that by adding it to your pre- or post-workout routine, you are getting a dose of vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin B6! We told you it was a powerhouse!

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.
