5 Problems Only Girls Who Lift Will Understand

September 19, 2015 2 min read

Bucking a social norm is never easy. And although things are changing, lifting weights has historically been a male domain. Girls who lift have been known to "cause" confusion and misunderstandings but still refuse to let it stop them! And why should they? girls who lift Here are 5 problems faced by girls who lift:

1. Hearing they no longer look feminine.

Being feminine is so much more than one's appearance. Being feminine comes from within. It is a strength, it is a passion. It is a confidence and vulnerability. Not one of these things is altered by lifting weights.

2. Feeling 'big' around girls who don't lift.

As mentioned before, things are changing but at this point, the majority of society still expects women to be tiny and small. But when you think about it, does it really matter? The 'feeling big' is all in your head, and what you do with that feeling is up to you. Fit and strong are entering the mainstream, you're just ahead of the curve.

3. Developing big, visible traps and quads.

Lifting changes the body. Lower fat percentage, more muscle mass, slimmer waist and noticeable traps and quads! But the thing is, your body was built for this. Not only were we made to move, we were made to lift and carry things. Don't fight the natural changes. The only real challenge that comes with these changes is finding jeans that fit!

4. Explaining your BMI to doctors who don't lift.

BMI is a dubious way to measure anything. The formula is far too simple to accurately say much in this case. It fails to account for actual fat percentage. So, if you have a nay saying doctor, don't worry too much. You're active. You're healthy. Never mind.

5. Constantly explaining to people why they lift.

Because it brings you joy. That's the simple answer and the only answer worth giving. Anything more is no one's business. You don't have to justify a thing. Heck, if they tried it themselves, they'd know. Are you a girl who lifts? What is the biggest problem you've faced? Source: BOXROX

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.

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.
