We all know families are important. Whether they're families you're born into or families you create yourself, these are the communities that sustain us through life's downs and keep us grounded during life's ups. When it comes to taking on the challenges of getting fit, it makes sense that you'd need community support for that, too.

So why is it that so many of us think we should be able to do it alone? Maybe it's that we figure we got ourselves into a mess (e.g. overweight, injured, sick) and we need to get ourselves out of it. Maybe it's that we are embarrassed or ashamed to ask for help, which can understandably seem daunting in a world awash with a newsfeed of seemingly "self-made" successes. The truth is no one is self-made and truly successful  — at least if your idea of success has anything to do with happiness. The sentiments are oxymoronic.

Long-term Success Isn't an Island

Think about any success you've had in life: graduating from school, getting a dream job or promotion, receiving an award. To get to this place, you may have done most of the grunt work alone, but somewhere, someone was cheering you on: a parent, a teacher, a mentor or friend. You had at least one person at some point in your life encourage you.

That's what a FitFam is all about: encouraging you and supporting you so you can reach your goals, whatever they are, and however long it takes. People who have a FitFam are far more likely to get fit and stay fit, too. We’re not making this shit up.Studies show that we are greatly influenced by the healthy (or unhealthy) actions of people around us and that people who hang out with fit friendstend to lose more weight.

Why? Because FitFam is there even when you get waylaid or lose sight of your path. FitFam is there especially then, actually. Your FitFam are the people who understand what you are going through because they have gone through it themselves, or they are going through it. They are your community: the group of people you can come back to when you've had a bad day and feel alone and discouraged.

And it's so easy to get discouraged, especially when you're just starting out. Some of the people in your life  — even people you love — won't understand or support your changes. It could be because they don't like the idea of losing the you they've become accustomed to: they are afraid you will somehow fundamentally change (which, you will: you will be happier and more confident). It could be because they are afraid if you change, you won't like or love them anymore (getting fit may change the way you feel about yourself, but a lower body fat percentage doesn't change how you feel about the people you care about). It could be because you making changes makes them feel bad about themselves: by striving to be better and by being successful, you hold a mirror to them and remind them of what they feel dissatisfied about in their own lives. It's unfortunate, but ultimately, it's their problem, not yours.

And remember, there will be many people who do support you: friends, family, coworkers and of course, us. We're proud to have a community of truly remarkable people who not only welcome new members to the FitFam, but full on embrace them in a total love-fest of support. Please, if you're trying to work toward a goal, do yourself a massive favour and join ourBodyRock Insider's Group on Facebook. This is were our FitFam and trainers come to ask and answer questions about nutrition and generally chat, laugh, cry, encourage and support the ever-loving sweat outta one another. You don't have to dive into conversations right away if you don't want to, but lurk awhile, say hello: surround yourself with the support you need to succeed.

Our Insider’s Group is also a great place to get honest advice about workouts and gear. If you’ve been looking at a piece of equipment but aren’t sure if it’s right for you, then ask! Someone on there has it, guaranteed. Peer reviews are one of the most trusted ways to get information about products, so if you have any questions before you shop our Warehouse Sale, ask your FitFam: we will never steer you wrong!

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.
