Remember Protein World? They're Back With Another Controversial Ad!

January 06, 2016 1 min read

Protein World caused a kerfuffle last summer with their billboards asking, "Are you beach body ready?” The billboards were slammed for being sexist and many claimed that the images shamed fat people. There were protests and an online petition, signed by over 71,000 people asking the company to remove the posters. Now, the company is back with a new television advert, and there are more than a few similarities between the campaigns. The short ad contains bikini-clad women working out on a beach with the slogan “New Year, New You." Company founder and CEO  Ajun Seth says that the TV campaign will launch in the  UK, US, France and Germany in 2016. download The beach body ad was eventually banned by the UK advertising watchdog. However, they decided not to ban the ad because it wasn't "offensive" or "socially irresponsible." They banned the ad because they had concerns over "a range of health and weight loss claims." Despite this ban, the advert was profitable. Seth says the controversy earned the company $2.9 million. [bctt tweet="Remember Protein World? They're Back With Another Controversial Ad!"] It is hard to say if this advertisement will be met with the same level of disgust, but it has already been called "more sexist than ever." proteinworldtwit Should we really be shocked that Protein World came back with a similar style ad? There is, after all, no such thing as bad publicity. It's probably safe to assume that people will be offended all over again. Are you offended by these ads? Tell us your thoughts!

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.

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.
