The 5 Traits of "Perfection"

September 30, 2013 2 min read

Hey everyone!  Let's start with this for a moment.  Sit for a while and think about the most inspiring person in your life.  Someone you know personally.  What's the one thing that no matter how much time passes you'll always remember?  What's your favorite memory of them?  Are you smiling yet?  Ok good. Mine: my Grandpa.  A WWII Navy Vet, a pastor, tied for first place in the most wonderful man category (with my husband).  I will never forget how loved and wanted he made me feel and my favorite memory of him was him sitting in my parents kitchen eating his favorite apple pie with a slice of cheddar on top.  Yep smiling...a lot.  I loved him. Ok so purpose of this...I am willing to bet none of you thought of someone with any regard to their body and whether it was perfect or not.  You remember the way they made you feel.  You envisioned their smile, their hug, their presence in your life. I'm here to de-bunk some of the "perfect" body traits. e12ce2419b406633eb05336bb6daf982   Collar Bones: Seriously? Not sure when these became necessary for a perfect body.  Have you ever had someone grab your collar bone?  Its a pressure point and it hurts like hell...why for the love of God would you want to expose it?!?! cf342d1ac65e02cf4d204bad5ff3ac97 Big Boobs: Honestly?  Ok I've got boobs...I'm here to say having to go ONLINE to get the best bra for a larger chest sucks.  I'd rather they not bounce so much or move.  Oh and the girl above...not even wearing the correct size bra. db02ab6c2942fa475040b328c551c18c Flat Stomach:  Who cares about a flat stomach if it can't do a single crunch...?  What a waste of time trying to achieve.  Let's go for the ability to do an entire one of Lisa's AB DEATH days...without crying. a9ae5b932ab4df44c73ade1aa896162f   Hip Bones: Ok...I'm just going to say it...have you ever run into something and just sat there and thanked God you didn't have massively protruding hip bones?  Yep me.  Lots of times. The only reasons they are popular are because of the anorexic models on the runway. ded5d484874fc58a352d510e1a6f7cd2   Thigh Gap:  Ooh my number one pet peeve.  You know the only reason why it matters today is because someone somewhere decided thighs that touched automatically meant fat.  Did a little bit of research.  It all has to do with pelvic structure...so a loose pelvis is what creates the thigh gap, a tight one not so much. So back to our little exercise at the beginning...how many of these characteristics did your most inspirational person fulfill (if they were a man just roll with me here)?  Maybe one or two?  Maybe none?  Instead of focusing on the minutia of "perfecting" your body, you focus on overall health...soundness of mind...good relationships...things that last your whole life.

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.

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.
