Top 3 Dangerous Items in Your Gym Bag

May 07, 2015 2 min read

In this day in age, being in-the-know of what's really in your every day products is important to your health and wellbeing. Even common products stashed in your gym bag can pose a threat. Here are 3 typical gym items you may want to take a second look at. 1) Yoga Mats  WSvVhPl_CJE9UqR9v9QY7K3FuPUsOy6snS8yI5RkATg A yogi's best friend - comfy, cushy and chemical based? Yoga mats are made with PVC which, according to Centers for Disease Control, is highly toxic. Breathing in too much of this chemical in Downward Dog can lead to respiratory problems, reproductive problems and liver damage. The solution? Eco-friendly, non toxic yoga mats. Look for ones made from hemp, natural rubber or cotton and that are PVC free and lead free. 2) Deodorant    A lot of mainstream underarm deodorants and antiperspirants are full of aluminium, parabens and triclosan. These chemicals can be carcinogenic with aluminum being linked to breast cancer. They can also cause allergies, skin irritation and possibly kidney damage. The solution? Find deodorants labeled organic or all natural and double check the ingredients list to ensure no chemicals are included. You can also make your own deodorant with just coconut oil, shea butter and baking soda.  3) Workout Apparel  FjMynkz5pI25h_RsSqDdl-eN3rSo8AqwVc797Lm_su4 Have a trendy new sports bra or leggings that is supposedly odor-free? This type of apparel is woven with silver to prevent that post-workout funk. It sounds cool and very high-tech, but really those nano particles of silver rub off while you move and attach to your skin. This exposes you to high levels of metal without your knowledge. Metal can potentially damage your lungs, kidneys and liver. The solution? Apparel that is naturally antimicrobial and made with materials such as bamboo, instead of silver. Will you be making a switch to natural products? Let us know!

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.
