Are You Still Cooking With Olive Oil? Read this! (Part 1)

June 30, 2015 2 min read

Olive oil has got to be the most popular oil used in the kitchen. It is so very versatile, has a wonderful light taste and is used in many different cultures around the world. Recently, there has been some talk in the media about olive oil and its safety when cooking. This article is meant to expand on buzz around olive oil by explaining what I have learned about the safety of using olive and other oils in the kitchen. This information really changed the way that I thought about food and cooking all together and it will hopefully do the same for you! If you have questions please post them below so that everyone can learn through the queries of others. 2. Olive oil Oil is the very first thing that we put in the pan to start building flavours for our meals and this, at the very basis, needs to be re-evaluated. The Tipping Point: All oils are very sensitive to environmental factors such as light, heat and air. Taking this into consideration, in order for us to get the intended nutritional benefit from these oils we need to ensure that they are protected from such elements. Each type of oil has a specific smoke point, ranging from low to high heat. Simply put, the smoke point, indicates when the oil has been taken past its safety zone and is therefore morphed into rancid oil.  Unfortunately, oils like olive oil have low smoke points and are primarily used for hot applications in cooking and frying, where the oils are damaged, beyond recognition. The resulting compounds, something similar to PLASTIC is foreign to the human body and simply cannot be metabolized. Like all other toxins that we ingest, these place stress on the delicate excretion systems and forces the body to store it because it doesn’t know how to process these harmful compounds. What’s worse is that naturally the body stores toxins in the fat cells, which can cause inflammation, a well-known cause of chronic disease such as diabetes, cardiovascular aliments and the like. Scary stuff right? The oils that you have always trusted isn’t as good for you as you’ve thought and regrettably there is more to the story… Stay tuned for part 2!!

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 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.

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.

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.
