September 29, 2016 2 min read

There is a danger lurking in every office! No, it's not walking with scissors or insane paper cuts! It isn't even the gossipy coworker in the break room! The danger in every office is your chair! Sitting for at least 40 hours every week leads to a phenomenon known as "office gut and butt." That's right, it isn't just in your head! Signs that you are suffering from long-term chair damage include:
  • cellulite or sagging skin
  • flattening of your glute muscles
  • excess weight gain on your belly and butt
  • even skin problems do to lessened blood flow to the butt region
Sitting all day causes your glutes to shut down. Failure to activate these muscles leads to something muscle atrophy. This means your muscles are more or less asleep and unless you work to activate them regularly, you can forget about that high, perky bottom! Blood is not flowing through the area, which means toxins are not being flushed, and blemishes will not be healed. Cellulite will form form the sheer inactivity of the glutes. Office butt impacts so much more than just your appearance. It can lead to a whole variety of pain and posture issues. When you sit for long periods, your hip flexors become tight which prevents those glutes from activating and prevents your pelvis from rotating forward, leading to compression (and pain) in your lower back. And of course, these issues don't just impact your back and your glutes but your entire core! If there is one thing you want, it's a strong core. Fortunately, all is not lost. There are many things you can do to wake up your glutes, tighten that tummy and strengthen that back!

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.
