The age defying benefits of exercise have been long observed, proving that the ultimate fountain of youth is actually found in a puddle of your own sweat. In fact, resistance traininghas been shown to even reverse aging of human skeletal muscle. What kind of exercise is the best for anti-aging benefits? You guessed it: HIIT!Studies reveal that high-intensity interval training can inhibit cellular aging and even promote rejuvenation of cells that repair damage in our bodies.

Yeah. It’sthat good.

Want another way to promote healthier, younger looking skin when you workout? Use our DIY beauty balm! It cleanses, it moisturizers, it promotes cellular regeneration and that post workout glow? Well, it'll be nuclear.

Our balm is particularly great for those of us thatsweat it out al fresco in the dry, cold weather in the winter months since it will give your skin a much needed hit of hydration while also protecting it from wind chill.

You'll need:

2 tbsp coconut oil or grapeseed oil

8-10 drops PURE frankincense essential oil*

*must be 100% to ensure no chemicals or additives are used! If you have sensitive skin, start off with a smaller dose of frankincense oil: 1-2 drops.


Directions:

Mix coconut or grapeseed oil and frankincense together in a small, resealable container. Apply to face prior to workout, massaging it into your skin in a circular motion.  Remove from face post-workout using small, circular motions with a damp cloth.


Why it Works

Both grapeseed and coconut oil are used in many skincare products and is known to both gentlycleanse and moisturize your skin. Frankincense has been prized for centuries for a myriad of health benefits, not the least is its ability topromote healthy cell turnover andkeep skin smoother, tighter and more toned. Combine these perks with the age defying benefits of HIIT, and you’ve got skin that not only looks healthier, butishealthier.

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.
