Is that Cake Even Worth it?

August 24, 2015 2 min read

Perusing Pinterest you can run into a lot of crazy little fitness/health memes. Some are good, some not so good. Like one that said you won't remember how that cookie tasted in 6 months but you'll be able to still see it on you. Now what's wrong with that picture? First of all, cupcakes, cookies, cake, brownies, ice cream...they are all delicious. And addicting. We all know that. But one cookie or one slice of cake as a treat will not be sitting on your thighs or your waist in six months staring at you in the mirror. All to often we are caught up in the minutia of our diets and our lives and we forget to look at the big picture.  When we are facing weeks of binge eating or drinking and a total lack of working out-then yes those choices will stick with you. That slice of cake at your sister's graduation party or the wedding this summer-no its not going to derail your proper diet train. There are instances when that cake is worth it and there are times when its not.  The trick is to see the difference between the two. At the end of your life when you are lying in your bed, surrounded by loved ones, it won't be that slice of cake or the six pack abs you had that you're thinking about. It will be the people. You'll think of every moment you spent with them and the way in which they made your life better. Maybe you'll even remember sharing all those Christmases and Thanksgivings when the conversation flowed as freely as the wine. So no, you won't remember the cake. And unless you die from an obesity related illness, you also won't be thinking about all the veggies you ate and how you never missed a workout. Life is about living.  Its about taking care of yourself in order to live and to have relationships and to travel the world. A healthy lifestyle is much the same as a job...it enables us to do what we love and to be with the ones that we love. We work to live, we don't live to work. So relax, take care of your body, and live and enjoy the world.

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 2-3 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.
