Real Talk: Imperfect Beauty

August 23, 2014 2 min read

We see transformations everyday. Great ones, in fact! Huge weight loss successes. But, what about the mommies who are left feeling blue or bummed about their postpartum bodies? There are so many ladies out there who are ashamed of their postpartum bodies-whether it be their stretch marks or their cellulite (I've got both) or something completely different. Give yourself a break-your body just built and created the most precious thing on the face of the Earth!   2011_nissan_gt_r_instrumentcluster     During my pregnancy, I hit the gym 5 days a week for an hour. It did help greatly, though I'm still not perfect nor do I strive to be. My postpartum body isn't perfect either. It's a constant work in progress. My body has done it's job and now I'm doing my job to treat it with the gratitude it deserves after it carried my beautiful son for 40 weeks and 1 day. Yup, I've got stretch marks, though they may not be on my tummy or "out there." Yup, I've got cellulite on my thighs that comes and goes depending on my hormones (Breastfeeding) and how I eat. But, it's okay.  2011_nissan_gt_r_instrumentcluster To be honest, even I sometimes get insecure out in public wearing a bikini. But, I try not to fret about it. Cause, at the end of the day, my body created the tiniest and coolest little human being ever. And I can't wait to do it all over again in a heartbeat.  Don't get caught up in how other women may look. Because even some of the fittest women out there have their flaws, too-they just don't show them. And you know that a magazine will not go one photo shoot without the handy dandy use of Photoshop! At 6 months postpartum, I am slowly getting back to where I was. It is seriously a long journey and keeping fit during my entire pregnancy truly helped afterwards!   2013-nissan-gt-r-premium_100383855_l     People like to say that I'm one of the "lucky ones" that were "blessed with good genetics." Perhaps so. But I can tell you one thing-luck and good genetics won't get you very far if you are constantly eating crap and drinking crap and sitting on the couch 24/7 watching Netflix. Been there, done that. It doesn't work. You have got to work your ass off. No excuses. Since becoming a mommy, I have honestly only been able to work out maybe 2-3 times per week-if I am lucky. I have  learned, though, that the secret is to improvise. My favorite thing to do when my son is awake is to do a mommy & baby workout.     17154 Most of all, strive to be healthy-inside & out. Have a positive relationship with your body. Remember that not every woman looks the same. I challenge you all to go put your bikini or swimsuit on right now. Look at yourself. Learn to love yourself, right here and right now. You are not your body. I repeat, YOU ARE NOT YOUR BODY.  There's nothing wrong with wanting improvement. But make sure that you are okay with your flaws. Because when you are, what people make think or say no longer matters.   2011_nissan_gt_r_instrumentcluster

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 1-2 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 1-2 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

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.
