What Do We Expect 40 To Look Like?

June 09, 2015 2 min read

When you close your eyes and think about being in your 40's, what do you see? Do you instantly imagine that gravity has taken over your face and breasts? Does your wardrobe become more conservative? Are you, well, old? When my folks turned 40, I was about 10. My father was given a bumper sticker that said "40 isn't old if you're a tree" and something else that referenced 40 as being over the hill. My mother was subjected to a lawn full of 40 flamingos and a 'Lordy, Lordy look who's 40!" sign. I didn't get it. They didn't appear any different than they had in their 30s. But they were. 40 meant adult. Grown up. It meant thinking about college funds, mortgages and retirement savings. It meant being 'old.' But these same baby boomers seem to be changing things. The older they get, the younger everything else seems to be. They have proven that life doesn't end at 40. And neither does your sexuality. It drives me bonkers when a woman's beauty is qualified by a "for her age." What the hell is that? Beauty is beauty at any age. Take Jennifer Aniston. She's 46. She doesn't look great for her age, she looks great. Period. She is every single bit as 'alive' as she was in her 30s. J-Lo is yet another example. She's doing more now than she was at other, earlier/younger stages in her career. There is absolutely no reason why 40 has to be a devastating milestone. You are only as old as you feel. We all know 'old' 30 year olds. If you treat yourself right, inside and out, you're all set. You can define what 40 is. It can be just as bad ass as your 20s. Think of how much more fun you would have had in your 20s if you knew what you do now? My closest friend is in her early 50s and she goes out dancing every weekend. Why not? Who makes the rules when it comes to these things? You do. If there is something you want to do, do it. If there is something you want to wear, wear it. Embrace yourself at any age. Your beauty abounds. Sure, gravity is real. Aging is real. I've noticed it already in my mid 30s. Own it. Walk around in the world knowing what you know about yourself and knowing that you are beautiful and those qualities do NOT have an expiration date. Especially not at 40. Elle Macpherson is rocking the hell out of her 50s. The way I see it, we just keep getting better. What do you think of 40? Has your idea of '40' changed over time? Source: Daily Mail

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
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.
