September 29, 2015 2 min read

The grocery store seems to be both a blessing and a curse. It saves us money from splurging on overpriced lunchtime sandwiches and nightly takeout or indulgent dinners at restaurants. But, we often find ourselves spending way more than we bargained for when we shop. Though we claim we only get what we need, somehow the bill adds up quickly, and we attempt to shrug it off. But supermarkets DO find ways to trick you into spending more money than you actually need to. Ten for $10 10 for 10 According to a grocery store survey, people bought much more than they wanted to when they saw 10 for $10 deals vs. five for $5 and one for $1 sales. But remember to ask yourself whether or not you actually need 10 of that item. Large grocery carts carts Ever feel like you'll look like a fool if you push around a cart with very little in it? This might cause you to start throwing things in just because. Opt for a hand basket instead. Precut vegetables and fruits where's everything Though they look nice, and they prompt you to think how nice it is to have that step taken out of your routine, leaving you that much closer to eating it, they're not a good deal.  CBC News discovered that precut veggies and fruits can be a lot more expensive than the whole items. Checkout goodies items at checkout Standing in line waiting to checkout can be boring. But thankfully there's fun items from gadgets to goodies staring you in the face.

Eye-level items eye-level trick Chances are, if they're at eye level, then they're the name-brand options that are pricier than what's below. Kneel down to get the real deals.

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.
