5th Oldest Person in the World's Secret To Living A Long Life

March 16, 2015 2 min read

Emma Morano believes she has the answer to life longevity. Now, anyone can spout their theories on what may help a person live longer than the next but Ms. Morano has a little more credibility than most- she is 115 years-old herself. Emma was born on November 29th, 1899 in Civiasco, Italy. She has experienced life through three different centuries and is the oldest person in Europe- and the fifth oldest in the world, natch. What's her secret? Eggs Emma eats three raw eggs per day, ever since her doctor suggested she eat them to counter anemia back in her teens. On top of that, she also states that being single since the end of her first and only marriage in 1938 has helped sustain her health. "I didn't want to be dominated by anyone," she has been quoted as saying. Additionally, Emma's health has always been relatively consistent ever since she and her family moved from an area known for its cold winters back in her youth to her current residence in Verbania, Italy, a region that boasts a much milder climate. Emma2 Of course, there is no one right answer or method to guarantee living to a late age. However, studies have indicated that some key factors do play into living longer, the two main ones being diet and genetics. Emma's apparently got the diet factor down pat. As for genetics? Your chances of living to a late age increase if other members of your family lived a long life as well. Turns out, one of Emma's sisters lived to be 102 while another passed away just before the age of 100. Good genes certainly run in the Morano family! Tell us: What do you think is the key to a long, healthy life?: Diet? Exercise? Companionship? Or is it all just pure luck?

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.
