The "Belly Button Challenge" Needs To Stop Already!

June 16, 2015 2 min read

It has gone viral lately and you've probably seen it but if you haven't, here's the deal. The Belly Button Challenge is a 'test' to see if you need to lose weight. You simply reach your arm around your back and see if you can touch your belly button. It is believed to have started online in China but thanks to the power of social media, it has spread all over the globe. Cosmopolitan spoke to a weight loss specialist to see if this challenge had any validity. Charlie Seltzer, M.D. said, "If you can touch your belly button from behind your back, you could be in better shape than someone who can't — but you shouldn't have a false sense of security about your health. You might have a small waist and look healthy, but your blood work could show that you're just as unhealthy as someone who weighs 400 pounds." You're trying it right now, aren't you? I tried it. I'm not even close. I DO actually have weight to lose but that is probably not the only reason it didn't work. Arm length and flexibility may also play a part. Not being able to do it does not mean necessarily that you need to lose weight just as being able to do it does not mean you are fit. It is time we stop using these silly tests and challenges to determine whether or not we 'look right' because that's really what this is about. This is a test of something completely external that has nothing to do with your actual health or fitness. Ignore it! You don't have to look any particular way. Continue on your own journey, belly button be damned. h/t: PopSugar   Do you follow us on Instagram?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
