BodyRocking for Charity

December 22, 2013 2 min read

Recently, the BodyRock community came together and helped a homeless man, Jerry, have a warm place to stay and food to eat for Christmas, click here to read about it if you missed it. With Lisa-Marie's recent call to action for Jerry, and all the no equipment workouts for holiday travels that we've been posting, it dawned on me, that we can use our BodyRocking to help others while getting in a challenging workout on the go. Here's how you can get in an awesome workout, and do a good deed for someone. Next time you're travelling, instead of trying to go equipment free, grab that sandbag of yours, empty out the sand and stick the sandbag shell in your suitcase. When you get to your destination, go to the grocery store and purchase some rice or dog food or cat food etc to fill your sandbag. Use your sandbag as normal for your workouts, and before leaving town, donate that rice/dog food/cat food to a food bank or animal shelter. Not only will you have gotten in a great workout for your muscles, but you will have given your karma a good boost too. Other great fillers for your sandbag that can be donated later include:

Rice Dry dog food Dry cat food Kitty litter Small canned goods (wrap them in a hotel towel before putting them in your bag) Birdseed Feed corn Dried beans

If you need some workout inspiration, here's a workout that makes good use of that sandbag... in fact, every exercise uses it.

Sandbag Hotel Room Workout:

Set your timer to 15 rounds of 50 seconds work and 10 seconds rest
      1. Back squat
      2. Sandbag swings
      3. Lunge and twist
      4. Clean and press
      5. Bent over row

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.

Clothing

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.
