Your Cart is Empty

The Best of Platonic Valentine's Dates

February 14, 2014 2 min read

I have always loved Valentine’s Day, in elementary school when you hand out dorky store-bought muppet-themed cards, or get to pass out chocolates to your friends, or more importantly when you got to eat chocolate. My dad would always leave chocolates or a card at the end of my bed for me to find when I woke up, and there would always be a bouquet of yellow roses on the table for my mom (her favourite). As I got older, my love for Valentine’s Day didn’t die out, in fact, I think I’ve just gotten more extravagant in my Valentine’s celebrations. For the four years that I had roommates I would always get them something nice, whether it be a blockbuster gift pack or homemade mason jar pies, and they would scurry out of the house and come back with something really nice (and thrown together, but still, nice) for me.  One of my roommates hated the idea of Valentine’s Day and insisted that it was an “early Easter present” – yeah, sure, whatever, ya big grump. For my bestie one year, I made her a delicious home-cooked meal. It was two pizzas, which I made in the shape of hearts, one was pesto-based, and the other was tomato-based, so we both got a half of each heart. In my final year of college I gave everyone in my program hand-made personalized Valentine’s Day cards and a heart shaped lollipop. Why? Because I freaking love Valentines.

Here are my Top 5 Suggestions for celebrating Valentine's Day with friends:

1. Baking. Hellooooo, chocolate is like, the best thing about Valentine's Day, why should you miss out? Plus, you can make things heart shaped! That's like, one of the best shapes! And there's so many healthy dessert recipesout there, way better than that store-bought crap. vRich and creamy peanut butter filling, hearts, buckeyes, candy, chocolate, Valentine's Day dessert 2. Make an exquisite dinner. Ok, more cooking, but still, it's nice to come home to a fresh home-cooked meal, so follow my example and make a delicious gourmet feast for a friend. vpizza 3. Spa time. DIY face masks and at home mani-pedi's? Yes please. Plus, the more the merrier, make a girls' night out of it and have some of those delicious home-made desserts in between facials. Trashy gossip mags are a plus. vheartnails 4. Fondue! Okay, more food, I know - but chocolate dipped strawberries? Come on, how much more perfect can that get? vfondue 5. Movie night. Going out to a movie and seeing tons of happy couples being couple-y may make you want to ralph, so have a movie marathon at home. It doesn't have to be love-themed, it can be anything you want, any holiday is a good excuse for a movie marathon in my opinion. vMMdvd   And yes, if I have ever been dating someone during Valentine’s season I’m sure we went out on a date or exchanged presents or what-not, but those aren’t the Valentine’s Days I remember – it’s the ones with my friends or my family, the real REAL loves of my life.

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.
