In Defence Of Compulsive Fitstagramming!

August 14, 2015 2 min read

You either love them, hate them or you are them. I'm talking about fitstagrammers. Those people on my newsfeed who seem to be always working out and photo-documenting it.   Seeing #fitspirational postings leaves most people with one of two reactions - "Omg they are so fit. I wish I could do that!" or "Ugh, we get it! You work out! Now, if you don't start mixing up your pics with some cute kittens or what you ate for dinner last night, you're getting an 'unfollow'!" What really is the harm in posting gym selfies, shake recipes or awesome photos of yourself namasting it out on a mountaintop? For Shape writer Ashley Mateo, becoming a self-proclaimed fitstagrammer has not left her with haters, but motivators.   "As I posted more and more pictures, I noticed that I wasn’t losing followers who couldn’t understand why I was flooding their feeds with #fitspiration, but I was gaining a new kind of following: runners, bikers, swimmers, trainers, and other fitness addicts." explains Ashley, who avidly posts everything from candids of her yoga class to marathon selfies.   "Suddenly, I had a digital pack of cheerleaders that made posting even more gratifying." she says about the fitstagramming community. "They weren’t just quietly following either; they were leaving encouraging comments—virtual pats on the backs for each new milestone I passed." Instead of being bothered by fitstagram overloads, take a closer look at the connection this online fitness community creates and the motivation they provide each other to reach goals, feel body-positive and never give up. What are your thoughts? Are you pro fitstagram or prefer to keep your workouts free of selfies? Source: Shape

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.
