Stripping Down For Feminism

March 25, 2014 1 min read

Tracey Spicer, Australian journalist and media personality starts this TEDxSouthBankWomen talk by taking us through her beauty routine that day. Her self-effacing humour makes this oh-too-familiar routine look properly ridiculous. She also takes a different look at how these unrealistic beauty standards affect our lives: productivity. How much time we spend grooming ourselves in order to look the way a woman “should” look by society’s standards is actually a pretty good chunk of our lives. Here’s the statistic: TraceySpicerTEDTalk Obviously a certain amount of grooming is necessary for hygienic reasons, but putting bronzer upon concealer upon foundation is not really the best use of our time. According to Spicer here’s what we could do with the amount of time that women spend in their lives beautifying themselves: -       Complete a pre MBA course at Oxford Business school -       Become proficient at a musical instrument -       Learn another language -       Earn more money! I would really suggest watching the whole video – Tracey Spicer does a literal deconstruction of the problem, starting with herself. She got a venerable cheer from the crowd when she started taking off her make-up, and of course wolf whistles when she removes her constricting dress. traceyspicertedx2 traceyspicertedx4 Watch until the end and you’ll also get to see Tracey Spicer’s idea for a new kind of feminism in 3 easy steps: traceyspicer5   Yes, I do like dressing up on occasion, but I shouldn’t feel the need to put on make-up to go grocery shopping or spend hours on my nails. These are things I can live without, and a good step in becoming happier, healthier, and more productive.

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.
