This Is Why You Should Never Wear Your Shoes in the House

August 25, 2015 2 min read

One of the first things many of us do when we get home is take off our shoes. We like to feel our bare feet on the ground. It's a sense of freedom and release. But not all of us take our shoes off before we enter the door. We walk through the house and to our bedrooms to kick them off, or perhaps we jump on the couch and realize half way through our relaxation session that we still have our shoes on, eventually letting them loose on the floor for people to trip over. But have you ever been to someone else's house who stops you in your tracks outside their door and informs you their home is a shoe-free environment? If so, you may have respectively obliged without quite asking why. never wear shoes in house It's safe to say one of the biggest reasons to take off your shoes before stepping inside is because your shoe is a carrier of all things dirty. In fact, The University of Houston conducted a study which found that 39 percent of shoes contained bacteria Clostridium difficile which is resistant to a variety of antibiotics. This type of bacteria can also cause diarrhea and colon inflammation. “Shoes are contaminated from diverse sources, and we are regularly contaminating our doorsteps by shoes,” explained study author M. Jahangir Alam, Ph.D. Shoes also contain germs, chemicals and oil or petroleum by-products, so by wearing them in your home, you are causing a greater risk of contracting harmful health conditions to both yourself as well as your friends and family. Are you ready to give up wearing your shoes in the house yet? Source: Healthy Wild and Free Do you follow us on Instagram?

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.
