I came across an from the Telegraph a few days ago that was chronicling the sharp increase of stay at home moms (SAHM) that have been forced back into the workplace. Since 2011 the UK has seen over 200,000 being forced to reenter compared to only 189,000 between 1996-2011. Two thirds of married British mothers with dependent children under the age of three are working.
What is so politically volatile about this issue is that David Cameron's conservative government had promised a "family friendly" government. Which is exactly not what has been seen. This trend is not applicable only to the UK. With the economic crisis of the last few years more and more families are having to weigh the costs of childcare with potential earnings of the mother.
I'm a stay at home mom...and making that decision has been a sacrifice for my husband and I, but we feel that it is what is best for our daughter. Giving her the best we can. It's not always a feasible choice for so many families which is why the lack of support in Britain is rather worrying. Aren't families our first priority...isn't that where stable and healthy members of society come from?
So perhaps this isn't the most...obvious issue for a fitness website...but it is in fact. We find so much of our support in our families, mentally, physically, emotionally. I am in no way advocating all mothers stay at home...only that government should do what it can to make sure that if a mother wants to...that they do what is in their power to help.
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 4-6 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.
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.
