September 23, 2015 2 min read

You are no doubt familiar with the infographic that shows exactly what happens to your body one hour after drinking a coke, now, there is one for the Big Mac. U.S. based company, Fast Food Menu Price, put together this infographic. Have a look: 2CA1D3FB00000578-3244387-image-a-1_1442909814525 After 10 minutes, your blood sugar will rise to abnormal levels. You'll feel good in these 10 minutes because junk food triggers the reward centers in our brains releasing dopamine. It works a little like the high from a drug. After 20 minutes, you'll be craving more. The sodium and high fructose corn syrup in the bun are highly addictive. One U.S. Big Mac contains 970 milligrams of sodium so after 30 minutes, you'll be a little dehydrated. Dehydration can mimic hunger so you'll have to fight the urge to eat again. If you are eating too much sodium, your kidneys may have a hard time eliminating it. Your heart pumps faster and this can lead to high blood pressure which, of course, can cause heart disease and stroke. If you are still feeling hungry after 40 minutes, it is because your blood sugar is all out of whack. The high fructose corn syrup in the bun is absorbed quickly, causing an insulin spike and more hunger. It can take you more than three days to digest a Big Mac. Normal food processing time? 24-72 hours. It takes, approximately, 51 days to digest trans fat. In the U.S., a Big Mac contains, 1.5g of trans fat. EEK! Trans fats have been linked to heart disease, obesity, cancer and diabetes. What do you think? Is this enough to make you give up on fast food completely? Source: Daily Mail

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.


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.
