What's the Best Time of Day to Workout

October 08, 2013 2 min read

Finding the right time of day to work out...oh boy.  Does anyone else have a big problem with this?  I’ve oscillated back and forth with working out in the morning and working out at night.  I was only doing evening workouts because my husband enjoys putting our little one to bed so I hop off to the garage to get in my dose of the Daily Hiit.  Lately though I’ve noticed that I can consistently get in an average of 20% more reps in the morning because I have more energy and I’m more likely to do the workout if my husband is off on a business trip.  Now that's reason enough for me!

According to the American Heart Association, “It depends on when’s the best time for you.  The best time of the day is when you will do it most consistently, because the benefits of physical activity are tightly linked to the amount you do on a consistent basis.”

There are a few factors that play into your best time; location, time of day, type of physical activity, and social setting.  This means that there are more factors at work than simply “what’s the best time of day.”  It’s about achieving consistency.  According to the AHA the differences in working out at different times of the day are incredibly minor compared to working out on a consistent basis.

This is actually great news for all of us!!  Since we are all different and have different demands on our time we actually have leeway.  Haven’t we all heard that working out late at night keeps you up?  Or that working out in the morning revs up metabolism?  Turns out science doesn’t back the former and the small benefits of revving up your metabolism in the morning doesn’t compare to the benefits of working out five days a week.

So say you aren’t a morning person at all, getting up an hour before your alarm isn’t going to do you any good if you hit snooze four times.  And if working out at 8 or 9 after the kids go to bed is just too hard because you’re drained...getting up earlier might be your solution.  Nap time also works well for those parents out there.  This is why the Daily Hiit works; no fees, no driving to the gym, no two hour workouts.  Just you and no excuses.

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.
