Ode to Panera

November 03, 2014 2 min read

I was originally just going to tweet about how awesome my meal at Panera Bread was, and then I realized that I had much more of a rant bubbling up inside of me, and since my blog IS called “Thoughts Longer Than 140 Characters” this actually was the epitome of blog material. Anyway, I love Panera Bread. Seriously. I’ve been there about 5 times this month. Mainly because they brought back their autumn squash soup, which is unfortunately only seasonal, so I’m trying to eat as much of it as possible before it leaves the menu. (Side note: Anyone wanting to start an “autumn squash soup year round” petition, let me know). So, to describe this soup, it’s creamy, delicious, and not to be overdramatic, but eating it is like looking into the face of God and seeing Him smiling back and saying, “You are my most wondrous creation” (to quote one of my fav SNL skits). I had it in a bread bowl the other day. UNREAL. panera The second reason that I’ve been to Panera Bread so many times this month is because they have these challenges when you’re a MyPanera member, and this month’s was that when you eat 5 salads this month, you get one free. I’m already a fan of their salads, so this was not a difficult feat. BUT, I received some LIFE CHANGING advice regarding my salad intake, and I’m here to share. I usually get the Thai Chicken Salad but without the chicken. It has edamame, carrots, red pepper, walnut clusters, tangy Thai dressing; really it’s not missing anything without the chicken. HOWEVER, as I ordered my regular order, the cashier suggested subbing avocado into my salad instead of chicken. HELLS YEAH I want avocado instead of chicken. Especially because it’s FO FREE. Delicious. Divine. You don’t even know. P.S. My dad has yet to pronounce Panera correctly. He always calls it Pantera or Pandera. This is actually a more common occurrence than you’d think, it’s a Pictou County thing I guess, of adding in extra consonants willy-nilly. Such as, “My cousint can play goaldie, he’s standing over there on the lawnd.” As my dad explains, “consonants are free, you never seeing them have to buy consonants on wheel of fortune, so I can put them wherever I like.”

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.
