Top 10 reasons to love hiking!

November 17, 2013 2 min read

This weekend for me was full of fresh air! Now that it's finally starting to cool off (while still remaining 90 degrees in the afternoon - I do live in Arizona after all)... I decided to get my a$$ outside and take the two loves of my life up a new trail. Anytime I can spend the day outside, it's a good day. I feel that hiking is such an underrated exercise and so good for your mental health. You can truly allow your mind to break free of all stress. photo 5 My Top 10 Reasons why I LOVE Hiking:
1) All the overly nice people - it is almost impossible to pass an avid hiker without a genuine "Hi"  --- a reminder that there really is genuinely kind people out there still! 
 
2) You can go at your own pace - Hiking is a form of exercise that doesn't judge your skill level, age or body.
 
3)  You're in the outdoors - nobody can smell your sweat! 
 
4) Automatically elevates your mood - a good hour or two in nature can calm your nerves and lifts your  spirits. 
 
5) Health benefits - lowers your risk of cardiovascular disease, helps prevent and control diabetes, increases bone density, lowers your cancer risk, and also provides your daily dose of Vitamin D. 
 
6) I am all about finding adventure. When you go hiking, no matter how difficult the trail, you always end up with some great stories and proud accomplishments. Not to mention seeing new sites, close encounters with wild animals (or in my case getting stung by a bee) and exploring new trails. 
 
7) It's Cheap! There are very few things in life no a days that are actually Free. Now, depending on where you go, you may have to pay for parking, snacks, and a maybe a water pack... BUT overall compared to just about any other exercise activity / sport, your upfront spending for hiking essentials is pretty minimal. 
 
8) Experience the wonder and the rugged beauty of nature. Enough said.

9) Hiking will test your will power and overall strength and allows you to experience an unadulterated sense of freedom. 
 
10) For me, it's great quality time with my pups. Snoopy (American Pit Bull) and Baby Jack (Pit / German Shepard Mix) absolutely love the trails and takes a lot to keep up with them. They are as happy to explore new sites as I am and push me beyond my own expectations.

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.
