It is frustrating to work out like crazy and not drop much weight. No matter how hard you try, that number on the scale just won't budge. It can make you feel like giving up. What's the point? If you aren't losing weight, you aren't doing much for your health, right? Maybe not. A  team of researchers out of Europe conducted a study that yielded some results that may make you want to keep sweating it out, anyway. The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,  has found that lack of exercise is twice as deadly as obesity. That's right, moving your body does more to support good health than being thin. The team of researchers scattered throughout Europe followed 334, 161 adults over the course of 12 years and monitored their  activity level, height, weight, waist circumference, and death rates. After controlling for sex, education, smoking, and alcohol intake, they found that lack of exercise is a killer.   They found that people who exercised moderately were 16-30% less likely to die during the course of the study when compared to their inactive counterparts. Extrapolating numbers, the researchers said that  337,000 of the 9.2 million deaths in Europe could be attributed to obesity. But nearly twice that,  676,000 deaths, could be blamed on inactivity. The researchers are not saying that losing those extra pounds won't improve your health, they are just saying the exercising regularly will improve it more.   [bctt tweet="Which Is More Important For Your Health: Exercising More Or Weighing Less?"] There is one big problem with this study, however -- it relied on self-reporting. Participants shared their activity level based on memory which, of course, is unreliable at best. The study also demonstrates  the effects of exercise on a population which means it does not account for individual factors like environment and personal habits. This study demonstrates a correlation between exercise and living longer. It does not demonstrate that exercising  causes you to live longer. This study shows that working out is good for you no matter what you weigh.   In all likelihood, the news that working out is good for you probably doesn't come as a surprise.

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.
