An Ode to Lifting and Resistance Training

September 10, 2013 2 min read

Dumbbells, barbells, weight benches, squat racks, bumper plates, pull up bars, chains, ropes, resistance cords...I LOVE YOU.  Yes, this may seem a little forward, but we have been in a serious relationship for the last two years.  Walking into a weight room or getting ready to do a resistance training workout, I get nervous and excited.  I know that all of the equipment is going to tear me down and make me mentally want to give up and physically shaking and sweating; but in the end, all of that pain and struggle is to make me a better me. Plug in, game face on, workout written, tear it up.  I crave the euphoric feeling that I can during  workout, when I am pushing myself to the max and right after when my limbs feel like jello. Two years ago, I was a cardio junkie, spending hours on the treadmill, spin bike and elliptical, not understanding why my body wasn't molding it into what I wanted.  Then, I discovered tire flipping, front and back squats, power lifting and HIIT training and I...WAS...HOOKED! If you are just getting into interval training or weight lifting, stick with it, I promise you, taking your aggression, feelings, goals, and motivation to an intense interval workout or a piece of iron will change your life.  It changed mine. A really easy way to start is by diving up your week with your workouts.  For example, MWF, you do HIIT training .  On Tues, Thurs, Sat, you do resistance training and/or lifting.  You are still getting in the cardio you crave, while giving your muscles a bit of their type of cardio: weight lifting. So now, I tell myself I have gone from workout enthusiast to bodybuilder.  You do not have to compete to be a bodybuilder, if you are molding and sculpting your body, then you are one! So, here is my ode to lifting and resistance training.  "Oh lifting, how I love you so, if I did not have your iron to throw around, my muscles wouldn't grow."

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.
