There are 3 major mistakes most of us make in our attempts to get slim and sleek for summer. We rely on the idea of the "quick fix" diet or the revolutionary workout and get discouraged when this one magic bullet does not do the trick. The secret is to look at health and fitness as a whole, and not get caught up on one particular factor. Here are the 3 deadly sins of the diet-games. Mistake #1: Picking a diet because a celebrity did it aUPV4dRvUeA7d3gJhGVqtmJIb26Absk4N2dikUqfvrU We look to celebrities for advice on everything, from fashion and hairstyles to diet and exercise. It is natural we want their fitness secrets. But what we don't see is that the rich and famous have an army of trainers, assistants and nutritionists to help them out. Their buff results don't come without a price - thousands and thousands of dollars. It is unrealistic to think you will get Candice Swanepoel's abs and toned butt in 10 days without enlisting a Victoria Secret fitness crew. Fitness can be achieved through following celebs, but in moderation. It might be 20 days before you see results, or even a few months. Have patience with your body and stick to your routine. Mistake #2: Relying solely on cleanses and detoxes   Cleanses and detoxes are the ultimate trend right now, but they are not the be all and end all of shedding pounds. Don't shell out money on detox programs or cleansing drinks. There is a better way to do this! Eliminating toxins from your body is highly beneficial. What we don't know is that through proper diet and exercise, your body will naturally cleanse and detoxify itself. Eating nutrient rich veggies, drinking tons of water and working out is the real secret to flushing your system. Mistake #3: Diet hopping There are a plethora of diets out there and all promise to be the IT diet. A lot of us suffer from diet commitment issues, hopping from diet to diet the second one isn't working for us. One week it's South Beach the next it's the watermelon diet (I made that up, is that a thing?). But nothing gives us our instant weight loss gratification so we soldier on to the next one. The best diet is the one we can stick to. Dieting is a process, and can sometimes be a long one. Pick a diet you know will work for your food taste, your hunger and your nutritional needs. Maybe convince your partner or friend to try it with you so you can support and encourage each other. Challenge yourself to stick to it for 12 weeks, and if nothing minor has changed, then consider hopping to the next one. What are some diet mistakes you have made in the past? 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.

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.
