Short-Term Fitness Goals Lead to Long-Term Success

June 03, 2013 2 min read

Your schedule is insane. We know it's hard to maintain your fitness goals. We know that you have a job, a family, a slew of bills to pay, a semblance of a social life to maintain and not enough hours in the day to do it all. So you may feel justified to set your fitness goals on the back-burner. Guess what? It’s not going to fly. The short-term payoff of getting your laundry done by relegating your health to the status of a second class citizen isn’t the best for you in the long run. Yeah, it’s nice to keep your whites white and your colours bright, but the juice isn’t always worth the squeeze. No one denies it’s difficult to stay motivated on long term goals like losing weight or building muscle when faced with the very immediate necessity of meeting a deadline or getting your kids to hockey practice. This is precisely why it is much more effective to live in the now; focus on immediate compensation. It can take weeks and months to actually see the results of proper diet and exercise, and this doesn’t always fuel motivational fires, especially if you’ve just started your foray into fitness and building fitness goals. The good news is there’s a really easy way to retrain your brain: Don’t worry about the long-term. Focus on the immediate benefits of living well. A recent study conducted by the University of Michigan revealed that women who tracked their instant results post workout exercised 34% more over the course of a year compared to those who only concentrated on weight loss or appearance related goals. So, instead of obsessing over your last 10, 20 or 30 lbs, try focusing on immediate benefits of exercise, like feeling happier, boosting your productivity and brain power, being less anxious, sleeping better, enjoying a post workout glow and having better sex. Yeap - ALL benefits of making just a little one on one time for yourself. Now go do it! Get started with our at-home workout routines and you can benefit fast and on your own time.

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.

Clothing

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.
