Hugh Jackman Explains Why He’s Leaving The Wolverine Character Behind

May 08, 2015 2 min read

We love fitness - but we also really love Superheroes! I think it's because they inspire us on our fitness journey to reach beyond what we thought was possible and to strive for our own moments of super human endurance, strength and agility in our training. They remind us that we are capable of being more than we give ourselves credit for - more than our expectations would allow. the-wolverine-poster When we heard that Hugh Jackman was leaving his role as Wolverine, we wondered if his age or fitness level might be a factor. Jackman has been playing the buff hero for 17 years. Thats a long time in an incredibly physically demanding role. To be honest, we doubted it was the physicality of the role because Hugh keeps himself in remarkable shape. Wolverine 3 will be the last time we’ll see him donning the claws. Now we know why. 1415499889117_wps_14_x_men_days_of_future_past “This will be my last one,” Jackman said on the Dr. Oz this week. “It is my last time. It just felt like it was the right time to do it. And let’s be honest, 17 years. I never thought in a million years it would last, so I’m so grateful to the fans for the opportunity of playing it. I kind of have in my head what we’re going to do in this last one. It just feels like this is the perfect way to go out.” It’s still likely that we’ll see Wolverine in X-Men: Apocalypse, as it’s the end of Bryan Singer’s X-Men universe and Wolverine has played such a large part in it. Wolverine has died in the comics before, so it remains to be seen if we’ll watch the man-imal see his fate decided before the credits roll. If memory serves me correctly, Magneto almost killed Wolverine by ripping out his adamantium skeleton. But enough of our fitness geekery lol. H/T: uproxx.com

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

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.
