Your Cart is Empty

Monday to Friday, we do every thing we can to stay on top of our game. We work like dogs at our job, we sweat it up at the gym. We buy organic produce and farm raised, free range, meat. We detox and we cleanse. We treat our body like it is a temple because if our bodies are working at their optimum level, we will achieve the success we so righteously deserve. So why do we do everything within our power to destroy all from Friday night at 5pm to Sunday evening? Our weekends are a crazy blur of excess and blackouts. Here is a list of the good things you are obliterating over the course of your weekend:

We sabotage our health

It really doesn't matter what you do Monday to Friday. There is no amount of clean eating that can balance out the crap we do to ourselves on the weekend. Somewhere between 10pm and 2am on Friday even the healthiest among us is slamming sugary shots, mixing wine with hard liquor and smoking so much even Joe Camel would be mortified. We ruin everything we tried so hard to do during the week.

We sabotage our diets

Drinking isn't a big deal. It loosens us up, right? Unfortunately, booze doesn't just loosen us up socially. It also loosens you up in regards to food choices. We can undo all the work we've done during the week in a mere matter of minutes. We eat entire pizzas or find ourselves standing in line at the fast food joint up the block. I once woke up feeling like death with an empty poutine container on my pillow. We gorge ourselves on empty calories (to say nothing of the empty calories we have already consumed in the alcohol!) for no good reason.

We sabotage our relationships

Being romantic and hard partying don't really go hand in hand. We've all seen (or done) it. That couple screaming at each other at 3am, stumbling up the street. Tears, screaming, name calling. Worst part, next day you aren't really sure what you were fighting about to begin with. But, the damage is done by then.

We sabotage our bank accounts

We are smart with our money during the week. Save every penny we can. On the weekends, we act like high rollers. We buy rounds at the bar, take expensive cab rides from the bar to that party that you will leave after 10 minutes and cab back downtown or home. We might as well take a match and torch the money. That would at least save us the hangover.

We sabotage the daytime

We drink until last call and then spend another few hours at the all night diner. We get home at dawn and then sleep until nearly dinner. Then we move to the couch where we draw the blinds and marathon "Housewives." All week we want nothing more than to be outside the confines of our office only to end up spending the weekends in the confines of our living room.

We sabotage our pride

We drunk text our ex. We make out with that guy we weren't even into. In front of the entire bar, no less. We wake up the next day shrouded in shame as our memory comes back to us in slow, painful flashes. Displaying dignity, pride and self respect is our core value system during the week. Add a little booze on a Friday night and that whole system just disappears.

We sabotage our emotional wellbeing

Binge drinking is not good for our mental health. We might feel amazing while we are loaded but it makes us crash twice as hard the next day. It fills us with anxiety. Is it any wonder? We throw away our money, our diets, our pride, our time. For what? Not much, really, when you take a good look at it. Pretty scary when you think about it. I think moderation is the key, how about you?

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.
