FAT! "What's love got to do with it?!"

FAT! “What’s love got to do with it?!”

What could the concept of LOVE possibly have to do with that cellulite you constantly cringe at, those love handles (you aggressively squeeze with angst), and those thighs that you continue to correlate with super-stormy weather conditions (i.e. thunder)?

EVERYTHING. Love has absolutely everything to do with it.

I personally believe that at the root of self-sabotage (and we all do this, in one way or another, from time to time), lies a genuine lack of self-respect, self-love, and self-realization.

When I work with my clients on their Nutrition / Health matters, I never focus solely on what is and isn’t entering their bodies each day. While this is important it’s, in my opinion, only one part of the refined sugar-free pie;)

I like to request a willingness in people to dig deeper. I often help them delve right into the HEART of the matter. As a result, I’ve observed something pretty fantastic; I’ve noticed that the people who are willing to work on building greater awareness (into their own personal patterns of self-sabotage), are the ones who achieve the most success (in terms of achieving their weight and health goals).

People eat for SO many different reasons; and the choice to eat for the sake of legitimate hunger is only ONE of these reasons.

People eat when they feel sad, in an attempt to fill the void. People eat when they’re angry, to suppress what they’ve always been taught is never “ok” to let out.

People eat when they’re lonely and thus make food their friend. People eat and eat and eat, and get fatter and fatter and fatter, so that (subconsciously) they can become unattractive (this way, they won’t risk being loved, and thus, they won’t risk of getting hurt).

People eat in extremes (extremely restrictive diets), so that they can create a sense of being in “control”, because nothing else in their lives has ever felt safe and trustworthy.

People eat when they’re feeling anxious so they can avoid facing their fear.

People eat for so many reasons, all of which continue to both inspire my work, while simultaneously, breaking my heart.

Do you ever eat when you’re not hungry? Do you ever, for example, find yourself putting food in your mouth (without even consciously remembering making the decision to eat that particular food?) Do you ever just eat, in other words, as if in autopilot? As if something else, is controlling you?

If so, I assure you, you’re not alone! Nor are you weird or broken. You're actually amongst the majority.

The great news is there is tremendous opportunity here for you to grow, change, and become exactly who it is you want to be.

It all begins with you fully accepting yourself exactly as you are, right here, right now, in this moment (as your read this!).

We all have these voices in our heads, you know the ones, the ones that tell you one million times a day that you’re imperfect, flawed, not “enough.” And you know what? It’s time these voices got SHUT-DOWN.

So, when you hear “your” voices, and you will, observe them (without reacting!), and then immediately and confidently declare back to them, “I am beautiful. I love and accept myself exactly as I am.”

All of the "ideas" that keep you from reaching your “ideal” weight, you see, are likely rooted in fear.

Do you eat your fears? Do you feel you deserve to be all the things you want to be?

Whatever it is that you want, I’m here to tell you, you absolutely deserve it.

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.


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.
