How To React To "Engagement Season"

December 17, 2013 2 min read

The above photo went viral after University of Tennessee co-ed Megan Jones and friends posted it on Reddit on Sunday December 8th.  Megan Jones is the girl in the bottom left corner in the red vest.  In an interview with Huffington Post Live, Megan said it was just a whim when she struck her own pose and said that her friends and herself had been taking so many "engagement photos" that it had become a little monotonous. The photo went viral almost overnight and led to an avalanche of tweets over the past few days.  Here are a couple:
It's engagement season, also known as "consume an entire bottle of wine before logging onto Facebook." season.
IT'S ALMOST HERE! - Engagement season. Better delete your Facebook accounts now if you want to survive the next 3 months without depression.
I'm convinced the holiday and engagement season is just making me depressed.
Many on twitter even wrote tweets like "we'd know which one we would marry."  When Megan was asked what advice she would give other single girls she stated to just enjoy the time of your life where you are at.  Megan said she was happily "not engaged" to her boyfriend.
Apparently the stretch from Thanksgiving to Valentine's has become known as "engagement season" and is even being touted as such in multiple women's magazines.  But this isn't driven merely by a desperate desire for something, anything to distract us from winter. In fact, it would probably be more appropriate to name this Ad-Driven-Jewelry-Buying Season. In fact lmost 40 percent of engagements occur during this particular stretch of the year—hence jewelers salivating over potential sales.So for several months, it's pretty much impossible to escape the endless subliminal hum of jewelry advertisements.  If you google "engagement season" you'll find press releases for Vermontweddings.com, Jos A Banks, and Brides Magazine.
But we feel you Megan...sometimes the overwhelming amount of engagements gets incredibly old.

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 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.
