Functional movements are movements founded on the way we move in real life. They are most often compound movements (meaning they use multiple joints to perform the movement) and employ your core.
We talked to BodyRock TrainerMicheal Levine, host of ourMobility & Strength Series on BR+, about the importance of functional movement to not only the structural integrity of your body, but also, your fat loss goals. Michael is a certified strength and conditioning coach, a Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist (FRCms), a registered 500-hour yoga instructor, and a co-founder of Famiglia — a men's mental health initiative in Toronto.
“Functional movement is key in day to day activities whether you're going upstairs, lifting or carrying heavy groceries and/or planning your next hike or marathon. It is also very important for preventing injury, improving the longevity of your joint mobility and increasing overall healthy movement in the body.
Functional movement can help you feel good in your own skin when you can move well, efficiently and with ease.
What’s more, when your body is functionally strong, you will burn more calories because you'll be moving properly and feeling more comfortable and strong when reaching on the top shelf for your blender, going for a jog in the park or swimming laps in the pool. When you move properly this can promote weight loss, increase lean muscle, have more effective workouts and be able to achieve your results sooner than expected!”

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.
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.
