5 Tips for Resisting Temptation

April 10, 2015 2 min read

1) Don’t buy or keep treats in the house. This is a very important practice because sometimes knowing you have a treat in the house can drive you crazy until give in. Don’t put yourself through that kind of torture on purpose. 2) Get your friends and loved ones on board Peer pressure is a very real thing. It makes the world of difference if you have support from those you care about on your health journey. Even if they don’t want to eat the same way you do, a little positive encouragement goes a long way. 3) Use the 15-Minute Rule: If you are super temped, commit to not giving in for 15 minutes and distract yourself with a healthy activity. See if the craving is still there 15 minutes later. If it is, I try to wait another 15 minutes. I remind myself that the craving will pass. 4) Stop and Reflect Before Responding: I ask myself, what am I about to do and why? Is eating this right now really going to serve some purpose and help me, or will I regret it later?  5) The #1 tip for preventing cravings (and the hardest to implement), especially with sugar… Is eliminate those foods completely! If you start having your treats on any regularity, the brain will start to crave it. Personally, I have committed to a completely sugar-free life, and I have to say that I don’t crave the sweet treats I used to! A lot of times when people say sugar free, they just mean no cane sugar but still eat fruit derived sugars. This is a great way to transition from a candy addiction but at the end of the day, sugar is sugar. If I need a little bit of sweetness, I will use all natural, zero-glycemic stevia or lakanto and it does the trick!

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.
