To all the haters out there...

November 27, 2013 3 min read

Since we started posting stories and images of our inspirational BodyRockers, we've been receiving constant criticism of women being "too thin", "no longer feminine", or being flat out called "unattractive" & "anorexic". We post these in hopes of inspiring others on their journey to being FIT and HEALTHY. It is NOT easy for someone to put themselves out there and be strong enough to share their story of struggle and progress. It is not easy for them to post these pictures.

These are not celebrities that are so far removed from the words flying around about them that they'll probably never see them.

These are your fellow BodyRockers.

Right here in this community.

The chances are incredibly high that they will read every word written about them.

Lisa has a disclaimer right at the top of her album
" It take's a lot of courage to post these before & afters - So please keep the comments ONLY positive - some people aren't like me & haven't become immune to the haters that fly around the web - and I have had some really sad emails from a few people at the comments made so far - you may not like it, they may have different bodies types to you - but it's there achievement & they are proud of it - just say well done or nothing at all ok ? - they are all amazing just for getting through 30 days !! & those who post them - if anyone even dares say anything negative tell them to f*ck O*f - you earn't every second of it :) & I friggin love ya xoxox"
Everyone, men and women alike, have different body shapes and types. Just because they may be different from yours or what you deem desirable, does not make them better or worse. We are not looking for comparisons - we are looking to motivate those who NEED it. But we are also trying to congratulate those who have achieved fantastic success. It is not easy to make physical and mental transformations, and all those who put in the effort deserve to be applauded. If you have no desire in congratulating them, we ask you to say nothing. Every time we comment back saying negativity is not welcome, we're met with responses like "oh this is a public forum....our opinions should be allowed". But if the shoe were on the other foot and your picture was the one being torn apart, you'd be wanting us to defend you in the same manner. If your picture was being called "unattractive" and your progress was being belittled, how would you feel then? I urge you, we all urge you, to think before you comment. What if what you're about to say was said to you? We want to motive ALL our BodyRockers out there; from those looking to lose large amounts of weight, to those looking to tone up. ALL progress is to be rewarded, regardless of your starting point or desired goal. Please respect that. Please comment with the other person's feelings in mind. And if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all. To all our BodyRockers that have submitted their stories and experienced this hate; don't let it bring you down. Not only are you incredibly brave for sharing your stories and pictures with us, all of your hard work and dedication is 100% worth it and we are incredibly proud of each and every one of you!

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.

Clothing

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.
