Quit Riding the Fence

September 18, 2013 2 min read

My husband keeps telling me that no one wants to hear what they can’t eat.  Believe me, I get it!  He’s one of the biggest ones.  He doesn’t want to be told what he can and can’t eat to be healthy and/or keep his girlish figure.  Haha! ;-)  We’ve gone round and round where he’ll ask me for help, then gets mad later on because he doesn’t want to follow that help.  After numerous times I have resigned myself to not help him, he is a big boy and has enough information that he has researched on his own.  He knows what to do, just needs to focus and make the decision to stick to it.

The funny thing is he has always eaten worse than me and has always suffered from various health issues.  No it’s not really funny and I definitely wouldn’t say that to him, but I just find it a little humorous that he has the issues, he’s always asking me for help, but then never wants to follow through.  Thus, although many of his issues have gotten better through fairly good eating, there are still quite a few that are plaguing him.  What I call it is ‘riding the fence.’  He’s right there on top of the fence, not all the way on one side or the other, just teeter tottering back and forth.  One day he’s got his foot more on one side, and the next he’s leaning to the other.  I think the longest he’s ever gone with sticking to a real food diet is one month.  And that’s just when you’re really starting to feel good.  You’ve gotten over the cravings and feeling bad because your body wants those certain foods and you’re a week or 2 into feeling the effects of clean eating….And then he stops cold turkey, back to his old ways of eating.  Not completely, but he’s got an extreme sweet tooth and loves cokes.  He’s cut back on both and eats fairly clean otherwise, but just can’t kick those last few things.

You could also explain it as dipping your foot in the pool but not taking a swim.  Maybe you’re halfway in, or you’re up to your shoulders, but that’s as far as you’ll go.  Well, you can definitely feel the cool water, you can feel the benefits of eating clean but you’ll never truly know what your body is capable of until you get your whole body in and go for a swim.  You know you want to!

And I guess that’s my point today is: like my husband, you’ll never know what your body is truly capable of until you go for it.  You’ve got to be all in.  So tell me, what’s keeping you from being all in?  I know what it is for my husband, but what about you?  What’s going to move you to take a swim, or to get off the fence and over to the other side?

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.
