  You would never think that someone as gorgeous as Candice Swanepoel would ever face criticism for the way that she looked. But unfortunately, society kind of sucks. Because, while working as a model, Candice Swanepoel was told to lose weight, a criticism she told SELF almost led her to almost quit her modeling career. 25C6B0F100000578-0-image-a-53_1424214970892 Crazy, right? Swanepoel said, “I was so used to people criticizing me for being too thin that it was shocking to me. I was crying.” Shocking to Swanepoel and even more shocking to us! But you know what? She got through it. And just when she was about to give up, she was offered the chance to become a Victoria’s Secret model. What now, haters?


Ladies — we all know we can be our biggest critics. But what happens when the ugly words come from someone else? Being 5’9 and 110 pounds, society deems that I should be happy and that I really don’t have the right to complain about the way I look. But that doesn’t mean I don’t get hurt when people assume that I have an eating disorder or think I’m unhealthily skinny. No matter what size, shape, or form, we’ve all experienced a sense of insecurity, or worse, bullying, like Swanepoel’s haters. I think we can all take a lesson from the strong-willed model and remember to stick up for ourselves! Tune out all the negativity and just keep on keeping on. Thank you, Candice Swanepoel for being an awesome role model and a real-life inspiration to all of us out here trying to function!

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.
