When it comes to getting a great workout at any fitness level, simplicity is key. That's why theweighted vestis by far one of our favourite pieces of fitness equipment. You'll see us wearing it in just about every workout. Why? Because hand-down, it gives the ultimate hands-free workout for your whole body. Just snap it on, and jump, lunge, push, pull, squat and run to your heart's content with the added resistance that's essential to building thatfat-blasting lean muscle mass.

And, if you've tuned in to more than a smattering of our workouts, you'll also notice we love using the weighted vest for targeted ab exercises. The reason is twofold: as we already said, it's simple to use. Just clip it and crush your workout. It also adds 6-12 lbs of resistance to your upper body, which means your abs have to work harder to perform even the most basic ab exercises. So, even if you're new to training, you can add one unassuming but hard-hitting piece of gear to your workouts and make leaps and bounds with your gains.

If you want to see these undeniable results for yourself, first,get a vest. Next up, try these amazing ab exercises. Add one to your next routine, or do them as a circuit. 50 seconds work, 10 seconds rest. Perform the circuit 4 times through.

Push Up Cross Touches

Notes on technique:

Drop to your knees for the push-up, then up to the plank for the cross touch.

These exercises look great! Thank you for including exercises to show how to use this vest. I have been apprehensive on purchasing one. Some commenters are saying these exercises are advanced. I don’t think they are…if you take it slow and steady and provide alternative options, everyone can do these at some point… provide alts, would be my suggestion. 😁

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.
