August 26, 2015 3 min read

2015 has become the year of girl power. Women everywhere are kicking ass and taking names, from female fighter Ronda Rousey to outspoken supermodel Cara Delevinge. Check out these 8 amazing role models who are breaking the mold: #1 Whitney Cummings whitney cummings This favourite funny girl always looks stunning, but she totally blew us away when she stated that gaining 25 pounds made her feel incredible! A great reminder to listen to your body and do what is right for your health, regardless of societal 'rules'. "I gained like 25 pounds, which I think I needed to. I was way too skinny before. Here's the thing: When you're on television, you get confused. I looked like I was passing away and I think it filled out... People think I got a facelift." says Whitney. #2 Ronda Rousey ronda rousey Her name has been on the lips of everyone lately. The media can't get enough of this woman who has helped bring female fighting to the mainstream. She has spoken out about her struggles with eating disorders, body shaming and her lack of fear in taking one of the best boxers of all time, Floyd Mayweather. #3 Kerry Washington kerry washington We love Kerry's grace and eloquence, and her determination to live a fit lifestyle. She has spoken candidly about working out her 'post baby bod' recently which trumps everything you've heard about how new moms should look. "I've been really focused on not being 'back' to anything, but being the best version of myself right now. My body is the site of a miracle now. I don't want to be pre-miracle." says the Scandal star. #4 Sandra Bullock sandra bullock America's sweetheart, Sandra, scored a lead film role that was supposed to be played by a man. The character was re-envisioned after the award-winning actress slayed the audition! Her amazing talent and total confidence is an inspiration to all females in the movie industry. #5 Kiran Ghandi kiran ghandi Kiran became a viral sensation after free-bleeding through a marathon. She woke up on race day with her period, but didn't let that slow her down. She went sans tampon through a four hour race and became an anti-period shaming legend! "I have this vision that if men had their period, because we are in a male-privileging society, that rules would be written into the workplace, rules would be written into the social fabric that enable men to take a moment when they need to or enable people to talk about their periods openly." says Kiran. #6 Anne Lorimor anne lorimor At 85, Anne was not prepared to live the quiet life of a retiree. The great grandmother embarked on a hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro and was the oldest person ever to reach the summit. The adventure also raised money for unprivileged children. Hats off to Anne! #7 Kristen Griest and Shaye Haver shaye haver kristen These women are officially the first females ever to successfully complete the U.S. Army's Ranger School at Fort Benning, GA. Because the government does not permit it, these women will not be able to join infantry, armour or special forces units. But the completion of training has reached government officials and raised debate over whether the laws need to change! #8 Cara Delevinge cara delevinge   Cara has become the it girl of fashion, but she's taking a totally new career pathway. She's hanging up her Victoria's Secret wings and her catwalk heels for acting. Her confidence in her career choice speaks volumes for why doing what you love is all that matters in 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.

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.
