Sock It To Me

September 08, 2014 2 min read

Alright, this blog topic involves a lot more preamble than is usual/probably necessary, so bear with me. The other day I was at the gym with my mum and got a killer blister on my heel. My mom, having just gotten back from a walking tour of Wales, where she walked about 10km every day for a week, was no stranger to blisters, and gave me these special blister bandaids, which I’m convinced are magic. Anyway, she then went on to talk about how I probably got the blister because my socks are too thin. At this point she exclaimed, “that could be a blog!” (this happens about three times a day, she’ll see a sign for Nike or read a statistic about squats and prattle on about how it could be a blog topic). She then continued to talk about the different kinds of socks you could get, how biking socks are more fun than running socks because they have fun colours, and then she came up with a bunch of puns (“sock it to me” “this blog will knock your socks off – then replace them with proper socks”). It went on far longer than any punning should, which is generally the way most of my family’s conversations go. SO – I ignored her, and went on with my day, but then my Greatist newsletter featured a story about BOMBAS running socks, and I thought, “ok, clearly the universe wants me to write about socks” – so here it is. sockit BOMBA is a sock company that have developed sports socks that are thin enough to stave off sweat, but still stand up to wear and tear, a blister tab to protect your heels, and honeycomb stitching to distribute pressure evenly across your arch. Here’s the best part: They’re like TOMS but for socks! The creators, David and Randy, learned that socks are the most highly requested item at homeless shelters, so they donate a pair of socks for every pair that they sell. Through indiegogo funding, they reached their goal of $15,000, and then surpassed it – reaching a total of $142,488.00 – that’s a lot of socks.

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.
