If you are someone who works out by yourself, you are far from alone. Gyms, parks, and living rooms are full of people busting out solo sweat sessions. On the surface, this practice makes complete sense. You control everything from the actual workout moves to the duration and intensity. Not too shabby. But, what if we told you that adding a partner could take your performance levels to new heights? It has often been said that having a partner can increase your motivation. The simple act of setting a time to exercise with someone makes you more likely to show up. You wouldn't want to let that other person down, right? Well, we'd like you to partner up so your don't let  YOURSELF  down! Studies have found that when you have a workout partner, your motivation to work harder increases. In a study published in the Annals of Behavioral Medicine  divided participants into 3 groups. All 3 groups rode exercise bikes at a given percentage of their heart rate for a set amount of time. The first group was the control group and they worked out alone. The second group worked out with a single partner and the third, worked out with a single partner but was told that the results of the test were based on the partner with the weakest performance. unspecified The workout partners, it is worth noting, were virtual. The participants connected with their partners via Skype and could see them exercising on screen at the same time. The participants were told these partners were doing the work at the same time and could see them as well but what they were seeing was actually a recording. For the third group of participants, the recording was looped so that the partner always performed better than the participants. At the end of the test, the solo exercisers had managed to last 10.6 minutes on the bike before calling it quits. The second group lasted 19.8 minutes. That is a whopping 87% difference! The third group managed to hang on for 21.9 minutes! That's right, they managed to nearly double the solo exercisers! The researchers didn't just demonstrate the value of a workout partner during one workout session, they had a look at what a partner can do for motivation over the long term and found these results held. unspecified So, now that you know that having a workout partner can have a positive impact on your performance, you may be wondering where to find one?

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.
