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

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
