THIS Is How You Respond To People Who Make You Feel Ugly

December 07, 2015 2 min read

We've all seen it happen. Perhaps we've even participated. It is the sad tale that is a part of the high school experience for too many people. Being judged on your looks and made to feel ugly should not be a normal part of life. But it is all too common. The thing is, being judged in this way doesn't have to stop you or slow you down in anyway. Lynelle Cantwell, knows this experience all too well. Lynelle found a poll, on the Straw Poll website, seeking to determine which girls were the ugliest grade 12 girls at her school. Her name was on the list. Lynelle admits that she was hurt. "I saw that I was fourth and I was like, 'wow,'" she said. "I felt hurt, like really really hurt. Not gonna lie, it tore me apart a little bit." Instead of letting the hurt build, she took to Facebook with this inspiring message: lynelle She's absolutely right. Not fitting into some arbitrary, strictly defined, standard of beauty does not make one ugly any more than fitting into it makes one beautiful. It would be nice to think that that sort of behaviour ends with high school graduation but that isn't the case. Our very own BodyRock host, Lisa, has been called ugly by members of our audience on more than one occasion. And like Lynelle, she doesn't let it stand in her way. INPOST (1) [bctt tweet="THIS Is How You Respond To People Who Make You Feel Ugly"] Lisa knows who she is. She is strong, she is dedicated and truly a fitness inspiration. She gets up each and every day and dedicates herself to helping thousands of people across the world look past the hurt, past the negativity and feel confident and proud of themselves. Her strength, both physically and emotionally, inspires people to look inward and see their true selves and their remarkable capabilities. Lisa inspires people to be the best versions of themselves they can be. If you ask us, that is pretty darn beautiful! At the end of the day, it is important to understand that the things people say are just words. What really matters is what you see. As long as you can get up every day, look yourself in the eye and know who you really are, nothing can stop you. You are the only person on this earth like you. While that may sound like a lonely prospect, it isn't. Your traits, your looks, your character are all unique to you. That's pretty special. Hold your head high. If someone calls you ugly or tries to tear you down, it says far more about them than it does about you. Have you been called ugly? How did you respond?

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
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.
