Body Shaming At Its Worst: Nightclub Promoters Shun 'Fat' 'Ugly' and 'Old' People

August 17, 2015 2 min read

Whenever I think of the epitome of a negative nightclub situation, I think of the movie "Knocked Up" where the bouncer refuses to let two ladies in because one is pregnant and the other is old. It sounds absolutely absurd that this could actually be happening in real life, but it is. nightclub If you've ever been to a popular nightclub on its busiest night, you know not to show up at midnight with your friends expecting there not to be a line. In fact, there's often an unavoidable and insanely high cover charge to top it off. And if you are one of those people waiting in the long line, you'll likely find promoters strolling around, picking out ladies in the line that they either know or they've made eye contact with and ushering them through the double doors as you wait patiently for your turn to come. Promoters indeed look to bring attractive individuals into clubs to enhance the status of the venue. Men with expensive clothing and a slew of ladies in sexy dresses are shoo-ins. It sounds materialistic, right? Unfortunately for one club in London, the superficiality surrounding the scene created a negative impact on their venue. Central London club Cirque le Soi's promoters have been put on blast for messaging punters informing them that 'fat' people will not be allowed into the club, and that unattractive groups will not be allowed in. "no big/fat girls/guys" promoters "Only 1 girls is not so good. The door girl will probably charge 3/4 of the girls because of that 1 girl." promoters A spokesperson for the nightclub reassured the media that the messages are not an extension of their own policy. "We would like to distance ourselves from comments made by a so-called "promoter" who is not employed by us in any capacity and reassure you that this is not our door policy whatsoever." Have you ever experienced unfair treatment at a club? Source: Cosmopolitan Do you follow us on Instagram?

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.
