The Photoshop Fail That Made Us Love Emily SkyeFit

February 05, 2015 2 min read

There are a lot of "fitness personalities" out there. We know how hard it is to break out of the pack and we have nothing but props and respect for those trainers out there who have embraced the social media spotlight, but who have remained authentic, hard working and above all real. Today we are going to introduce you to someone we love to follow on Instagram for their approach to fitness, and dedication to keeping it real. Although this trainer posts loads of great exercises and diet tips, it was this post that won us over. From her Instagram account: Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 3.29.45 PM I want to share a little story with you guys. About 4 years ago while I was still modelling I started exercising and eating healthy, I gained some muscle which I loved as I'd always been skinny with no shape. The only problem was I was getting knocked back for jobs because I was told I wasn't slim enough and too muscular. I decided that I was going to cut modelling away and focus on what truly makes me happy which is health and fitness. I was asked to attend a casting for photoshoot for a fitness/bikini label which I was excited about as I felt I suited the look they were after and I ended up getting the job! I did the shoot, got given a disc of all the images and I was really happy with how my new fitter, healthier body looked in the photos. A couple of weeks later the images popped up on the company's website and I was horrified with how they'd transformed my body! My abs were photoshopped out, my muscles were taken out and my arms, legs and tummy were made to look thinner. The girl in those photos was not me. It was some digitally created girl. I couldn't believe that this fitness brand had done this to my pics when they were after a "fitness model" in the first place. I worked hard for my muscle and for the first time in my life I was actually confident in myself. - Here is a pic showing the before photo from the disc I received and the after photo I found on the website. No matter what the media or a brand or anyone else thinks is the "ideal body" I refuse to change myself to suit them. Embrace who you are and how you look and just be YOUR best - you shouldn't give a damn what anyone else thinks about you!   Have you seen our fitness videos? We post full-body workouts daily!

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.

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.
