If you want a HIIT workout that really gets your heart pumping, you've come to the right place. We've got the bestcardio HIIT circuit to increase your cardiovascular stamina, but also, score you some insanely shredded lean muscle gains.

The secret to this circuit's sweaty success?

We combinepowerful plyometrics with combination moves,compound movements andadded resistance to really amp up your energy burn, so you have to push harder to get through every single second. Your lungs and muscles will burn and your heart will feel like it's going to thump out of your chest, but overtime, your cardiovascular health will improve and your body will be leaner and meaner than ever.

Things to know before you train:

  • This is HIIT (high intensity interval training), and its success rests on your working hard for a short period of time, followed by a shorter rest, then working hard again. Repeat. HIIT sessions don't last long (usually around 12 minutes to 30 minutes), so you have really push yourself while you are working. Your rate of perceived exertion (RPE  — how hard you feel like you are working) should be between a 7 - 9.5 on a scale of 0-10 — 0 being laying on your couch scrolling your Insta feed, and 10 being doing the hardest exercise you can conceive of doing. Read more about how to measure your workout intensityhere.)
  • Everyone's RPE is going to be different, so measure yourself by your own standards, and work to your own fitness level. We give modifications to make these exercises suitable for beginners.
  • If you're new to exercising, WELCOME!  — but check in with your doctor before you start HIIT. (We'll be here for when you get the go ahead!)

Ready to try the best cardio HIIT circuit ever? Set your timer to 50 seconds work, and 10 seconds rest. Smash out this circuit 4 times (5 if you're in total beast mode) and then  — if you can lift your arm to do it — give yourself a pat on the back. You're a rockstar!

Let's go!

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.
