Posture Perfect

May 01, 2013 2 min read

Listen to your momma and stand up straight! Good posture not only makes you look confident, it is also the fastest way to look 10 pounds lighter. Doesn't matter how tight your abdominals are, slouching forward creates rolls around your midsection and makes your appear inches shorter than you are. It is also just a horrific stress on your spine and back. Great posture may seem as simple as rolling your shoulders back and sticking out your chest - and in one regard, it is - but unfortunately sitting in front of computers, in cars and in front of the TV for hours on end has done nothing to help us build and maintain good foundations. Here are a few tips to help you keep your headlights on the balcony:

1) MOVE!

Yes, get up and move around. Sitting around in your office chair may seem passive enough, but staying in that position for prolonged period will cause muscles to tire. The result? The dreaded slouch. Slouching puts pressure on your neck, spine and back. Getting up and walking, stretching or even standing will alleviate this pressure. Also, exercise regularly to help build a solid muscle infrastructure.

2) Be Mindful

We know, staring at a screen for hours on end is mind-numbing, but try to think about your body. Think about sitting up straight, keeping your ears, shoulders and hips aligned. You can even lean forward with a straight spine to alternate positions and avoid muscle fatigue.

3) Uncross Your Legs!

Ladies, we’re looking at you. Uneven seated positions will not help your posture. You can be demure without damage.

4) Stay Loose

It may seem at odds with staying mindful, but you do not want to be so overprotective of your posture that you stiffen your body. Your body is designed for movement. Being too rigid will simply lead to muscle fatigue, and yes, more bad posture.

5) Invest in Your Success

If you’re one of the millions who has a sedentary job, front the cash for a good quality ergonomic chair. It will help support your spine and save you the pain later on.

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

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.

To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.
