12 Days of Christmas

Not all exercises are created equal. The advantages of high intensity interval training (HIIT) are clear. From helping you build muscle to burn more fat to increasing heart health and cardiovascular strength, HIIT training can boost your overall health in a big way.

But, there is an incredibly simple way to increase these results and take your training to the next level. By adding the BodyRock Kettlebell to the mix, you’ll be amazed by what can happen.

Stop wasting your efforts and start reaping the rewards of an exercise tool that combines cardio and strength training to help you feel (and look) your best.

1. Increased Calorie Burn

Adding resistance to your HIIT routine can help you burn more calories than if you were using body weight alone. Whether you’re using the 20- or 30-pound BodyRock kettlebell, it will help your body build muscle and elevate your metabolism which increases your calorie burn. Your body uses more energy, or calories, to build and maintain muscle than it does to maintain fat. The more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn.

2. Stronger Joints and Ligaments

Kettlebell exercises often involve fluid, multi-joint movements and this means they can help increase flexibility and strength in a way that is more closely related to how your body moves while performing daily activities. Building strength in your joints and ligaments will not only help you prevent injury during your workouts, it can help keep you injury free over time -- both inside and outside of the gym.

3. Better Balance

The BodyRock Kettlebell is different than dumbbells or other handheld weights. Because the center of gravity is located away from the hand, they provide your body with a unique set of challenges. Using the BodyRock Kettlebell engages your entire body. As you move the kettlebell, the center of gravity shifts which forces your body to engage smaller, stabilizing muscles in order to maintain the movement and your body position. Like having stronger joints and ligaments, better balance will improve performance, prevent injury, and keep you strong and healthy as you age.

4. Added Core Strength, Stability and Tone

Using the BodyRock Kettlebell can increase your core strength and stability. While kettlebell exercises don’t generally isolate specific muscle groups, they do have a profound impact on your core. That shifting center of gravity mentioned above actively engages the muscles in your trunk for the duration of your sweat session. A stronger back and stronger abs will improve posture, balance and stability allowing you to perform daily tasks with ease. This can also prevent injury and back pain without putting stress on your joints. What’s more, working these muscles will grow these muscles. We’ve said it before, you can’t spot reduce fat from trouble zones like the belly but you can build lean muscle which, in turn, increases fat burn and leads you to a tighter, trimmer, more toned appearance.

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.

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.
