What's The Magic Number Of Calories To Burn To Shed 1 Pound?

July 26, 2015 1 min read

Pop quiz. How many calories must your body burn up in order for you to shed one single pound? If you answer 3,500, you are way off. New research suggests it takes double that! 7,000 calories to be exact. It may sound discouraging, but here are some tips to taking the weight off based on this new 7,000 rule. A new Body Weigh Calculator has been developed to help you learn more about your individualized fitness needs. By using the calculator, you can learn what level of physical activity you need to maintain to reach your desired weight and how much to adjust it after you've reached your goal. Burning more calories can be as easy as making a few changes to your workout routine.
  • Doing outdoor cardio can burn 10% more calories than running in the gym because of the change of terrain.
  • Drinking cold water after every sweat sesh can give your metabolism a needed kick to crush more cals.
  • Stretching before every workout has been proven to help your body loosen up and become a burning machine.
Each person's body does not react the same to losing weight, and even this new rule varies based on metabolic rate, diet, stress and other factors. It also varies depending on how much you weigh to begin with. If you are already fairly lean, you will lose weight slower than someone with more body fat. This is why the body weigh calculator is an amazingly helpful tool. What are your thoughts on the new rule? Share your calorie burning tips with us! Source: BGR

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
