Are you addicted?

January 29, 2014 2 min read

New years resolutions are on everyone's mind including my own. Most are wanting to lose weight, change some bad habit, and some have claimed to not have a new years resolution at all.   To those of you who have goals, I am extremely excited for you and hope that you gain them! But yesterday, I read the most interesting resolution and goal for the year.  A gentleman discussed his bad habit.  It wasn't overeating, and it wasn't not working out.  He actually talked about his addiction to technology.  His challenge for himself, walk away from all of the techy gadgets he uses. Are you addicted 2 He shared that he was consumed by his phone, tablet, computer, and t.v.   He realized that each of the items listed were ruining his relationships and even his mental health. If he wasn't on social media posting something, he was thinking about what he could post.  It consumed him! After reading his blog, I would go as far as to argue that our consumption of technology is ruining our overall health.   Now, before you start arguing with me please hear me out.  I am one of those that believe in moderation. I have a smart phone, I own a computer, and we have a flat screen t.v. I also have apps on my phone that help me stay physically fit. Although I have each of these, I am going to work harder to put each of these down, to enjoy the time that I am given rather than always being plugged into the digital world.
Have you ever noticed that when you walk into a restaurant, or go over to a friend's house that everyone is now looking at their phone.   Maybe the article previously read stood out in my mind, but there were no conversations taking place, no new friendships being built. It helped to further my conclusion. Maybe they should make a sign that says rather then no smoking, no phones...are you addicted final Forbes and the Washington Post recently wrote about how there are findings that our tech gadgets are causing the side affects of depression, anxiety, insecurity, isolation, sleep depravation, etc.   I also believe your friendships show how healthy you really are.  So with that said, are you in the room with your family, friends, spouses, etc or are you off wondering what is going on in your news feed on social media or playing that game on your tablet?
My challenge to myself and to you would be:  be in the room, have good conversations, leave your phone behind when you go on a jog.  I would encourage you to enjoy the sunshine when your outside, look at how the hues brighten the day.  Rather than sitting around the t.v. while eating, sit at your table and have a meaningful conversation.  You never know how your mental health, emotional health, physical health may improve! I am taking this guy's que, and going to work hard to not be consumed by technology.

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.


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.
