3 Ways to Avoid Gaining The "Office 15"

June 23, 2015 1 min read

You remember the freshmen 15, that little extra poundage bestowed upon you in your early college days. Usually, due to the excess of boxed macaroni eating, 4 hour lecture sitting and the "occasional" alcohol beverage. Well, the same thing can happen to you at your desk job. 8 hours of inactivity coupled with an increase in coffee and donut consumption. Here are 3 tips on how to stop Office 15 from becoming an inevitability: 1) Healthy snacks Bring along some healthy options to munch on. Try pomegranate seeds, blueberries, roasted edamame, almonds and red peppers with hummus for dip. And try swapping coffee for a cup of green tea. 2) Get moving  Get up from your desk and go for a quick walk outside. A highly effective calorie burner is to run up a few flights of stairs. This gets your heart pumping, circulation flowing and metabolism revving! You can push things a step further by sitting on a stability ball instead of a chair at your desk. You can do mini workouts while you work. Stability balls work out your core just by properly sitting on them. They also improve your balance and make you feel more active. 3) Catch yourself snacking  Be mindful of when you're snacking mindlessly. In an office situation we sometimes eat out of boredom or tiredness. Recognize when you are really hungry, and when you are only eating for something to do. Got any tips for us about keeping fit at a 9 to 5? Let us know!

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 2-3 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.
