Going Out to Dinner and Getting Takeout Is Ruled By This Age Group

October 06, 2015 2 min read

Whether it's going out to eat or calling it in, there are plenty of people who opt for staying out of the kitchen when it comes to consuming food. But who takes the cake? Apparently it's young people over any other age group, and a lack of cooking skills could be the cause. a recent poll found that young people prefer takeout and going out to eat over cooking Discovered from a poll conducted by BBC’s Good Food magazine, which asked 5,000 British adults about their cooking and eating habits, it was found that people between 16 and 24 years of age spend an average of £63.65 per week on food, whereas adults spend £57.30. As for their culinary skills, the younger participants of the study noted that it was their lack of knowledge that lead them to opt out of creating meals from scratch. Children’s food campaigner Henry Dimbleby, co-founder of the natural fast-food chain Leon, said that these results are simply "depressing." "Learning to cook is so important. It’s very expensive if you don’t learn to feed yourself but it can also be a one-way ticket to a life plagued by diabetes and obesity," he said. "I think we are a generation who wants everything now," Rebecca Heslop, a 26-year-old food and fitness blogger said. "It's easier to order takeaways on the way home from work than go to the supermarket, buy ingredients and cook a meal. That's just too time consuming." "I guess priorities have shifted as the world has become more accessible to the younger generation. For many, it's about cramming so much into each day - from meeting friends to going to gigs and playing sports, not to mention many hours spent on mobiles and online," travel and food blogger Chloe Gunning, who runs the site wanderlustchloe.com, says. "When I went to university I watched friends spending lots on takeaways and ready meals and was keen to save money for things I really enjoyed, such as travel." What do you think of these findings?

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.
