My Personal Rules: #5 The Clock Strikes Seven

September 25, 2013 2 min read

I started this rule many years ago when I learned that Calories were simply energy. In a quick explanation, calories help your body temperature rise to begin the metabolic system. Make sense? So with this knowledge I started questioning, why would you need to eat late at night? This started a "no eating after dinner rule" for myself. There are definite exceptions to this rule... #1 if you workout late, #2 if you are simply starving after a long day. What I always suggest to people if they need an exception, then go ahead...just stick to green veggies and egg whites after dinner for a snack before bed. That will truly test if you are hungry or if you are simply wanting taste. If you aren't hungry enough for egg whites and veggies...than you might question if you are hungry. I have been so starving that green beans sounded AWESOME. Now that's hunger. The trouble that most people have with this rule is boredom and significant others. Sitting on the couch at night while watching television is snack zone. People want to be crunching on chips or sucking on candy because it's comfortable. If you want this rule, you will have to fight for it. I would say out of all my rules, this was the most difficult to keep going. I can happily say after years of practice I am still strong! Even when I have this to compete with... 57921_287112838055697_1634178376_n   This is my road block. He's a man that has never gained weight in his life, and spends most nights with his bowl of candy, cereal, ice cream, or munching on chips. When you are trying to say no to these things, the last thing you need is the smell of chocolate wafting up your nose. So, I move down to the floor with someone who doesn't eat unless we feed him... 582368_3330239023415_1602879660_n   Mr. Tibbs and I have spent plenty of nights just doing our best not to sit down wind to the glorious smells that come from the Dude on the couch. Stay strong. This is one of those rules that will have true pay off if you stick with it! XO, Tessa

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.
