This idiom does not have a specific origin, but the meaning is derived from the word body. A body has many parts that work together to ensure that human beings complete their daily tasks. For instance, hands are among the body organs used for functions such as washing, picking, and arranging things, among others. The heart, on the other hand, pumps blood to ensure that the entire body is functional. Similarly, the other body parts have functions that help the body keep moving. The unity portrayed by the body parts when completing tasks is what the idiom expresses. Arrive in a body means coming to a place in unity or as a group to complete a task or do something together.
