Hunger is a base urge that obviously serves as an important biological function. It beckons us to refuel when necessary and serves to remind us that without eating, we would fail to survive. Hunger comes from a lack of food, but we also use the word metaphorically to represent a yearning for other things. We can hunger for knowledge, recognition, love. But a new study has suggested that there may be something more to this metaphor than just poetics. Hunger can, apparently, make us crave things other than food. Not only can hunger make us cranky and in need of a kitchen, it can make us desire more mundane things like stationary. Yup, stationary. People who are hungry also shop more at the mall. This research can have important implications when it comes to judgment based on decisions and impulse purchases. [bctt tweet="Hunger Causes Cravings For More Than Just Food, Study Says"] The researchers asked participants to fill out a questionnaire about mood, hunger, relaxation, and binder clip preferences. They were given 3/4 inch binder clips and asked a series of questions about whether or not they liked the binder clips and how easy they found them to use. After some time spent with the clips, the participants were then asked how many they wanted to take home. The hungrier participants requested more clips. Hunger is a complicated thing. It makes complete sense that hungry people crave food items, especially high-calorie options, but it doesn't make sense that hungry men find pictures of heavier women to be more attractive, or that judges dish out harsher sentences when they don't have a break. Might hunger tap into an ancient and primordial need to acquire things? Hard to say. Think about it. Do you make odd decisions when you are hungry? Share some examples with us if you dare!

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 2-3 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.
