Your Smoking is Bad for My Health

January 27, 2015 2 min read

While headed to work, you stop to grab a coffee at the gas station and are greeted by the cashier taking her smoke break out front. When you get to work, 2 of your co-workers are finishing up their cigarettes next to you in the parking lot before work. It's lunch time and you are looking forward to sitting outside at your local bistro on this beautiful day. Unfortunately, you are sitting directly downwind from the cigarette smoke coming from the couple next to you. So, you get up and move. You hear the couple speaking to each other like you have a problem or something. Why yes I do, I like my lungs just fine how they are. On your way home from work, you realize you need to stop by the store to get a few items to go with dinner tonight. Coming out of the store, you get the pleasure of passing a group hanging out with their skateboards smoking. "Oh great", can't I go anywhere without dealing with this invasive cloud! You get home and while changing out of your work clothes, you can still smell cigarette smoke on them. They immediately go into the wash and you have to take a shower since you smell it in your hair as well. This is a typical day for many non-smokers out there. You don't even smoke, but are being drastically affected by second hand smoke everyday.   image   What Is Secondhand Smoke? It can come from a cigarette, cigar, or pipe. Tobacco smoke has more than 4,000 chemical compounds, at least 250 are known to cause disease. Secondhand smoke makes you more likely to get lung cancer and many other types of cancer. It's also bad for your heart. Every year in the U.S., secondhand smoke causes about 34,000 deaths from heart disease and 7,300 deaths from lung cancer, the CDC says. Smoke makes your blood stickier, raises your "bad" LDL cholesterol, and damages the lining of your blood vessels. Eventually, these changes can make you more likely to have a heart attack or stroke.-facts from WebMD

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.
