Hello again,

I just wanted to share with you all what I will be doing this weekend. This Saturday 13th July at 9:45am to be exact! Duration unknown - but I'd really like a duration of approximately 2 hours 29mins which would give me a new personal best! :)

Anyway, this weekend I will be competing at the British Triathlon Championships in Liverpool. This is a big race for me as not only is it the British Champs, it's also the last World Triathlon Championship qualifier race. And where are the World champs this year? Only on the Olympic Hyde Park course!!! :)

Every man and his dog wants to race in London in GB kit - the competition is immense and I'm going to have to have the race of my life to get a slot  - and that's just a roll down slot!

Last month I raced in Turkey at the European Triathlon Champs. It was a great event but I didn't have my best swim, and definitely not my best run! Personal best on the bike though! Yay! (High fives all round) :)

All in all, Turkey was quite uneventful for me and since then I have been focusing on run training and I am already seeing very promising results. Over the past month I have been running hard, so hard my legs give way when I finish, and sometimes even before I finish. I have nearly veered off into a hedge or field several times while running as my body and legs try to give up. One thing that gets me through and keeps me pushing is my dogged determination to improve - my head wont let my body give up - no way not ever.

Sometimes going back to basics brings the best results - run fast in training and you'll run fast when racing - simples!

Sometimes it's about learning to endure or even accept the pain of sustained high intensity effort and that's when practice makes perfect! Practice running a hard 10k three times a week and you will soon learn - trust me! :)

Well then, I'm ready and raring to go give these new running legs a whirl - wish me luck and keep everything crossed :)

Kat x

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.
