Let Them Be Little

February 07, 2015 2 min read

Growing up, one of the most sweetest and fondest memories I had in my childhood was with my grandmother. We did everything together. She encouraged me to have fun, play, and explore. FullSizeRender (1) Of one the things that I remember most is her allowing me to drag out each and every pot that she owned, along with chopsticks and wooden spoons, and beat them until there was no end in sight. In my mind, I was playing the drums. I was having a blast! Bless her heart for all of the lousness-but, she never once complained. Most of all, she let me be a little. Unfortunately, that was the last time I was allowed to be little in my entire life. I have seen many parents who take that away from their children. I've seen others take their children being little as an annoyance. They get mad when their children are too loud or if they run too fast. They get mad when they throw their food down or when they knock things off of the coffee table. IMG_2415
But what are the children supposed to do? Don't get me wrong. I am all about raising your child up properly to show them the right ways to do things, with manners, to become an extraordinary and responsible adult. I don't believe in letting your child overrun you or letting them become rambunctious by doing whatever they want. However there's a time in your life where you get one free pass to be little. During that short time, some of the best memories are made that can last for the rest of your lifetime. Sometimes, as an adult, I think we all should strive to find a little bit of our "children" within us. IMG_4004
Albert Einstein once said that "Play is the highest form of research." He was correct. I thank my grandma for allowing me and embracing me to be the child that I was. I was loud and messy at times, but it fueled my creativity and lead me to the adult that I am today. My son loves to make a mess. In fact, he gets into everything. Sometimes I correct him, sometimes I just let him be. I can see the wheels turning in his brain and it's so remarkable to watch. IMG_2235 So let them be little. Let them splash a little too much in the bathtub. Let the yell at the top of their lungs. Let them throw their food around. Let them bang on pots and pans. Let the make noise. Let them get dirty. Let them run around naked (at home). Let them explore their curiosities. Let them eat all of their Cheerios in one sitting. Let them play with the tv remote or the toilet paper. Let them knock all of their Dr. Seuss books off the shelf. Let them unfold all of your hard worked laundry. Let them do cartwheels in the house. Let them stash their veggies in their pants. For that moment will pass and be gone too soon. Cherish it now. Let them be little. Are you expecting your little one? Click the image below to stay fit during your pregnancy and bounce back!

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.

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.
