How Social Media Has Changed The Way We Break-Up

July 13, 2015 2 min read

Breaking up has never been an easy situation. In the days before social media ruled, you may have only encountered your ex in an awkward coffee shop run in or in line at the video rental shop. (Remember those?) Nowadays the "end" of a relationship does not mean your ties are cut completely. If you're deeply invested in the relationship, chances are you follow a lot of their friends and family on social media. You have Pinterest boards you shared with their sister, inside jokes tweeted back and forth with their friends and tagged photos of you and your ex on a double date. Your social media accounts are a digitally documented record of all of your memories of each other. And now your Timehop app keeps alerting you that one this day, 2 years ago, you went on your first road trip together. So now comes the slow dismantling of the public version of your relationship. You put up a profile picture of just you, change your status, untag yourself. But you can't get away from your ex. It's too easy to creep them, even if they are no longer your friend. And you can find them sneakily through a mutual friend's photos anyways. You can now watch from your screen as they find a new job, apartment, girlfriend. The important thing to remember is that, while the loss of a relationship can be painful, it does not define you. It's going to hurt. But it will not hurt forever. A break-up is a great time to focus on yourself. Meditate, take a trip, try something new! Yes, the world has changed and technology may make it seem more difficult to move on, but in the end you will find a way. What is the best advice you've ever received about breaking up?

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.
