5 Ways Your Life Will Improve After Purging Toxic People

May 21, 2015 2 min read

We all know about food detoxes. How ditching toxins can make you feel happier, healthier and lighter. It is a relatively easy thing to do with food but what about toxic people? Sometimes we acquire friends who poison us and strangle us like excess fat. They cause more drama than all the other people in your life combined. They are more emotionally draining and time consuming than any person should be. It is easy to make excuses to keep them around. You'll tell yourself 'we've been through a lot together' but that really isn't enough. Not always. Here are 5 improvements you will notice in your life if you manage to ditch the toxic folks:


Toxic people are often insecure. When we are around them, it is very easy to get consumed by this negativity. Body shaming and people bashing is not healthy inside or outside. When you step away from them, you will feel your outlook on change.


Insecurity is a breeding ground for cattiness. Making fun of people is a waste of time and is totally uncalled for. When you remove shallowness, you will find yourself open to bigger thoughts, plans and ideas. It gives you room to make, discuss and achieve goals. The more time you're allowed to focus on them, the easier they become to achieve.


Toxic people are energy suckers. Their drama means you often spend more time tending to their needs than you do looking after your own. And they never give back to you. Ever. As a result, you end up exhausted. This can effect your performance at work or your commitment levels to your workout routine. If you remove the toxins, you can focus on bettering yourself.


People who are actually interested in dealing with issues talk face to face. People who are looking to cause drama will do anything but. Silent treatments. Passive aggressive social media posts. Toxic people try to control the discourse by preventing a discourse. When you stop caving to their manipulations, you will find your life becomes far simpler.


When you spend your time with toxic people, the assumption becomes that you are one. People will judge you by the company you keep and it can be very hard to sway them once they've placed you in that camp. You may lose, or miss, opportunities to connect or network based on your peer group. At the end of the day, you choose who you have in your life. Choose carefully. Give your social life a purge. If trimming the fat can help your body, it can most certainly help your life.

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.
