If you've ever scrolled the recipes in our blogsInstagram or Facebook page, you've probably noticed a fair number of commenters asking for calorie counts and macro breakdowns. And yet, we don't provide the people with the numbers. What's up with this? Why aren't we giving the people what they ask for?  

There are actually a couple reasons that we're holding out, and they both boil down to a single core belief of the BodyRock philosophy: simple works best. Oh sure, we come up with some crazy exercises in our Sweatflixworkouts that may look anything but simple, but at their heart, they are designed to follow a very simple workout edict: challenge breeds change. And just like you've got to do new moves to see new changes, you've got to try new mindsets to see new results.

Hence, why we generally tend to shun the trend of tallying your life into numbers: into exact steps, into precise caloric burn, into minute grams of protein, fats and carbs. It's exhausting, and really, trying to find time to get in your workouts, eat as clean as possible and get enough rest in your already overloaded life is exhausting enough. Why add macro counting to the list of things you have to worry about  — or worse, obsess over. Food should be a source of joy and comfort: it should not be something about which you stress, and all too often, for so many of us, it is...and we’re trying to move away from that.


If you’ve picked up our new Fast and Furiously Fit Ebook, you may have noticed there’s nary a macro number in sight. Sure, we educate you about macros and each of our over 40 meals, snacks and desserts has a serving size, but you won’t see the number of calories, fats, proteins or carbs listed. Not once. It’s not necessary. Every recipe is clean and the guide teaches you how to eat a balanced diet, so you don’t need to know the numbers. Hell, we don’t know the numbers, and we’re still looking pretty good.

Sean’s transformation — and he did it by the book!

The whole ebook is designed to compliment Sean’s Fast & Furiously Fit Challenge on Sweatflix, which you get for 30 days FREE when you sign up now. And, if you use promo code FASTED, you can score $30 off the ebook. Like we said, we’re all about giving you the best solutions for your real life.

But isn't knowing your macro intake good?

Yes, of course. You absolutely need to have an idea of how much of each macronutrient you need to eat each day to support your energy needs, reach your goals and live healthfully. We are not contesting this. But you can get a handle on your macros without painstakingly accounting for the exact value of every single thing you eat. There's no need to chain yourself (and your perceived dietary success or failure any given day) to strict numbers. The truth is, if at least 80% of your diet is made up of a variety of clean, whole foods, you will likely already be eating the right amount of each macro every day. No need to stress.

Variety, of course, is the operative word there. As healthy as an apple is, for example, you can't have a disproportionate amount of your daily nutrients coming from apples or even fruit in general. You need more healthy fats, more protein.

Understanding Proportionate Eating

So while you don't need to know the numbers of every food you eat, you should have a general idea of what percentage of your diet should come from fats, proteins and carbs. We've written an entire guide on ithere, and it's a short, sweet and super helpful read that explains how to easily get a feel for your macro requirements.

The Second Part

But we said the reason we don't provide macros was two-fold, right? Well, here's the second fold: our recipes are open for interpretation. If you've ever watched Chef Sean in action, you'll see he gives options and adjustments to account for allergies and preferences. We do the same thing in our recipes, and because of these variables, we couldn't give you an accurate macro measurement if we tried.

You can grab this tee and other BodyRock apparel in our store!

Listen, if you love counting and don’t feel bogged down by the numbers, more power to you. Our recipes are super clean, so you can easily tally up the macros if you wish using a free online tool like Calorie King. But for everyone else who wants to be liberated from a life of counting, your best bet is to educate yourself on your optimal daily macro ratios, and ensure your diet is comprised mainly of healthy foods. If you do this, the results will be in the bag -- no counting required.

Get onboard a tally-free life. Score $30 off our Fast & Furiously Fit ebook and sign up for SweatFlix for 30 days, no charge, no risk!

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.
