Your Cart is Empty

It is a universal truth that few of us understand. The first 5 pounds are easy to take off, the last 5 are pure hell. If you have ever found yourself looking down at the number on the scale and felt like screaming in frustration, you are not alone. It always seems that despite our best efforts to further clean up our diets and burn those extra calories at the gym, those pounds refuse to budge. So, what's the deal? INPOST-muscle         It is pretty simple, really. Chances are, your goal weight is just 5 pounds too light. “Many women set their ideal weight unrealistically low,” says Michelle May, M.D., R.D., founder of Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Programs and Training and author of Eat What You Love, Love What You Eat. May explains that your body will always fight to stay at the weight that is right for you. A review from Pennington Biomedical Research Center found that every woman's body is designed to hold weight in different places. To get to a weight or size that isn't natural for you is incredibly difficult, biologically and psychologically, and will require you placing incredible restrictions on your life. [bctt tweet="This Is Why You Can't Lose Those Last 5 Pounds"] So while you may be obsessed with weighing what you did in high school, May insists that your body is supposed to change over time. What was right for you at 18 may not be right for you anymore. We aren't saying that everyone who has a difficult time losing weight doesn't need to lose it, just that sometimes what we want and what our body needs are two different things. Sometimes losing more weight can be unhealthy. Here are 6 signs that your body has found its sweet spot:

1. Your weight doesn't fluctuate that much

Every woman has a weight that fluctuates based on hydration levels, time of the month and bathroom schedule. But when your weight is where it should be, it isn't hard to maintain the weight on the scale. May says that a lot of weight loss fluctuations happen when you've lost too much weight which leads to overeating and gaining it all back. MIMI

2. You have tons of energy

When you are at a healthy weight, your energy levels will be high. Being an ideal weight makes it easier for your body to function efficiently. If your every day tasks are wearing you out, you may weigh too much, too little or be cutting too many calories.

3. You eat when you're hungry

And you stop eating when you're full -- most of the time. “Even healthy eating includes occasionally overeating, and that’s okay," May says. "If you listen to your body and let your hunger signals guide your eating most of the time, you’ll find your healthy weight and stay there."

4. Working out is about way more than weight loss

The greatest part about being at your happy weight is that working out becomes thrilling just because you get to see all the amazing things you can do with your body. It is no longer just about the number of calories you've burned. You'll push yourself because you want to reach new heights, not because you're trying to drop pounds.

5. Your health is in check

Being at the best weight for your body won't cure all your problems but it will make your body work better. Your blood pressure will lower, your immune system will get stronger, and you will feel healthier in general.

6. You eat the foods you love

When you body is healthy, you can really understand that food isn't just about fuel, it can also be about enjoyment. So, when your body is at a healthy weight, you can grab, and enjoy, that little bowl of ice cream for dessert when you really want it. Are you stuck at that last 5 pounds? Do you think you might be already at your ideal weight? Source: Women's Health

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.
