Your Cart is Empty

Many people indulge in a drink or five before heading to a party, but this kind of behavior can be detrimental to your diet. Not only are you consuming extra calories, you’re also lowering your inhibitions before you even hit the buffet.

According to a Swiss study, people who drink before they go out are almost twice as likely to experience the negative consequences of alcohol. This is because people who pre-drink tend to drink more and drink faster. As a result, they’re more likely to:

  • Experience hangovers
  • Engage in unplanned drug use
  • Experience blackouts
  • Have unplanned and/or unprotected sex 
  • Injure oneself or someone else
  • Damage property 

Pre-drinking can also add up to 1,000 calories to your night, which is more than half of the daily requirements for a lot of people. Mind you, in the face of these other consequences, extra calories are probably going to be the least of your worries.

Don’t pre-drink: workout!

Instead of powering back a few pints, do some exercise. Not only does a workout release endorphins, which will turn you into a dazzling conversationalist, it will also give you a feel-good buzz. What’s more, working out will help make you better able to focus.

Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis found a direct link between inactivity and loss of brain function. Muscle activity essentially cues healthy brain-to-nerve receptor communication.

Lead researcher, Dr Jeff W. Lichtman concludes, “If you lose activity, you lose receptors. But if you regain activity, you get those receptors back.” Working out prior to a big event will increase your concentration, and let’s face it, being able to calmly and reasonably deal with temptation at a holiday party may actually be the greatest gift of all.


Doing a strength based HIIT workout prior to a special event will also increase your metabolism for 24 hours after your session. Just keep in mind that while boosting your metabolism may give you an excuse to enjoy a little treat, it’s not going to justifying stuffing your face.

Countdown to 2018

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
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.
