Hey Guys, Mind Your Bones

May 27, 2013 1 min read

A lot of guys probably like to think that osteoporosis is a disease exclusive to women. A lot of guys probably also like to think their mothers only had sex for reproductive purposes. Bummer. Can’t speak conclusively about the latter, but the first statement is a common and dangerous misconception. At least one in five men will experience a broken bone due to osteoporosis in their lifetime. In fact, out of about 30,000 hip fractures that occur in Canada every year, over one quarter happen to men. Let’s break it down further: 37% of men who suffer a hip fracture will die within a year of the incident. This means proportionately more men than women die as a result of a hip fracture. Guys are also more likely to require care in a long-term facility post hip fracture. In spite of the blatant evidence, men are less likely to seek treatment for bone fractures. They’re also less likely to take preventive bone loss measures. Men: If it’s a lack of information at fault, then you have no excuse now.

Shipping & Delivery

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.
