We all have the power to transform our lives. We all have the ability to create an environment where we feel more inspired, excited, and enthusiastic. We can relieve stress, calm nerves and surround ourselves with good vibes. And the best part is that while we do all that, we can also increase our activity levels and burn more calories! It sounds too good to be true but in reality, you may be holding the key to all of this bliss right this very moment. Music is the key to unlocking happy thoughts and a more active body. According to a new study by Sonos and Apple Music, music is a powerful medicine. They began their study by surveying 30,000 people worldwide about their music routines and found that half believe music has no impact on their lives. Crazy, right? To test these statements they took a closer look at 30 families in different countries to see how, and if, their lives changed when they played music at home.   To establish a baseline, the families were not allowed to play any music for a week. This allowed the researchers to observe the family's ordinary activities and moods. The following week, they were allowed to play music as often as they wanted -- with one catch. They had to play the music out loud. No headphones were allowed in order to maximize the social aspect of listening to music. [bctt tweet="Want To Feel Happier AND Burn More Calories? Try This!"] Music proved to have a positive impact on the mental health of the participants. (Feel even better with clean eating! Try the BodyRock 30 Day Meal Plan). They reported a 25% increase in happy feelings and a 15% decrease in worry and stress. The researchers believe this is due to the music's ability to boost serotonin levels in the brain. The benefits of music did not end there. inpost "We could see that people were more active [at home] during the week with music," the study authors wrote. "We saw that the number of steps taken increased by two percent, and the amount of calories burned went up by three percent." A 3% increase in calories burned equates to about 60 calories a day on a 2,000 calorie diet. That doesn't seem like much but when you factor in the fact that it happens by doing little more than listening to your favourite songs, it is a totally free calorie burn bonus! It all counts right? Take your music to the gym and there is no telling where your workouts can go! What do you think of this study? Do you feel happier and more active when listening to music? Source: Shape

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.
