Finding the real beauty in men.

November 25, 2013 2 min read

I came across one of Dove's Real Beauty Sketches the other day. The tagline was 'Imagine a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety'. I have seen a lot of these documentaries recently basically promoting the inner and outer beauty in women. In this one in particular, a forensic artist asked several women to come into the studio and describe themselves. He never sees the women directly, but sketches them based on what they say. Next, he asks the women to get friendly and chat with one another, and then brings them back in to describe the woman they just spoke to. I definitely teared up after watching this, since it spoke to me in a way that it might to other women. We are so hard on ourselves. It's always easier to see and believe the bad than the good in something. We see our faults, not our assets. This documentary shows how someone else could meet us so briefly, and describe  us in a more beautiful light, than we could ourselves. We have to stop being so hard on ourselves. Start seeing the positive versus the negative. We are our own worst critic. With all this focus on women though, I had yet to see something equivalent for men, until now….. It was set up as a similar experiment to the Dove Real Beauty Sketch above, but this time only included men. It's amazing to see the similarities in both men and women. To see how men see the negative, and not the positive in themselves. It was only when another man was able to describe them, were they able to see their 'real' beauty  as well.   Amazing isn't it? I know it put a smile on my face afterwards. Stop being so hard on yourself, and try to see the real beauty that lies within all of us.

"If what you see by the eye doesn't please you, then close your eyes and see from the heart. Because the heart can see beautyand love more then eyes can ever wonder."

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.
