December 20, 2013 2 min read

article-2522370-1A0CAA4A00000578-945_638x347 Celebrities lately have been raising awareness about the rampant use of photoshop, most notably, Jennifer Lawrence’s comment about her Dior Campaign,
“Of course it’s photoshopped, no one looks like that.”
The trend of overly photoshopped ads, campaigns, and movie posters has been a source of contention for quite a while.  Recently, Ashley Benson, one of the stars of ABC Family’s show ‘Pretty Little Liars, recently took to Twitter to blast her own, highly airbrushed, show poster. article-2522370-1A0CA5E700000578-187_638x628 She tweeted, “Saw this floating around...hope its not the poster.  Our faces in this were from 4 years ago...and we all look ridiculous.”  She then added,
“Way too much photoshop.  We all have flaws.  No one looks like this.  It’s not attractive.”   ashle
The poster showed Ashley and her co-stars all with flawless complexions, luxuriously thick hair, and perfect makeup. article-2522370-1A0CA61B00000578-385_638x580 Ashley's Co- Stars: article-2522370-1A0CA99200000578-917_644x747 Lucy Hale article-2522370-1A0CA93300000578-8_640x811 Shay Mitchell article-2522370-1A0CA8E400000578-519_638x679 And Troian Bellisario. The backlash against photoshop and advertisers comes at a time when society is beginning to feel the effects of unattainable beauty standards amongst our most vulnerable.  Young women and girls.  Young girls are wearing makeup at younger and younger ages and dressing to emulate those celebrities they admire the most...in a word they are skipping childhood and going straight to young adulthood.  Perceptions about reality have become so terribly skewed.  What happens to a society that can’t tell reality from fantasy?  What happens to a society that all it wants is a fantasy? Perhaps this push for a much more realistic advertising campaigns is because society is starved for a little ‘normalcy.’  We grab up magazines and eagerly flip through the newspaper when there is a hint of scandal or fashion faux pas from a celebrity or public figure.  We want them to be human, we cut ourselves a break for not being able to be perfect constantly.

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.
