Trying To Be Healthier: Expectations VS Reality

December 03, 2015 2 min read

We all know how it is, you lie in bed at night, looking up at your ceiling, feeling the excitement build in your chest. You're going to make a change! Yes, a real change this time! Everything will be different and your life will change for the better. If you're really dedicated, you may even start to take steps toward this change. The problem, of course, is that it is way easier in our heads than it is in reality. Hands up if this sounds familiar:

1. Expectation: You'll start to run. Maybe you can fit in a marathon.

Reality: Running is hard. You hate running.  

2. Expectation: Yoga seems like an easy choice. And you'll look great while you do it!

  Reality: Yoga is hard. It is not as serene as it seems.  

3. Expectation: You'll start each and every day with a healthy breakfast.

  Reality: Maple syrup....  

4. Expectation: You'll adopt active hobbies like hiking

  Reality: You'll join a co-ed softball team at work and get winded taking first base.   [bctt tweet="Trying To Be Healthier: Expectations VS Reality"]

5. Expectation: Only veggies for you. You'll give up sugar cold turkey.

  Reality: Cupcakes aren't sugar, right?  

6. Expectation: You'll prioritize sleep and wake up feeling refreshed.

  Reality: You'll lie in bed, creeping Facebook on your phone until 2 a.m. You do not wake up refreshed.  

7. Expectation: You'll strength train at least twice a week and get crazy strong.

  Reality: One month in and you're still using the lightest weights you can find.  

8. Expectation: All of your meals will be fresh, home-cooked and prepared by you.

  Reality: Pizza delivery guys need work too. You're stimulating the economy.  

9. Expectation: Your new gear will make you look like a fitness model.

  Reality: You look like Grandma at jazzercise  

10. Expectation: You'll drink decaf green tea in the mornings to boost your metabolism.

  Reality: You can never give up on coffee. Or caffeine. Or sugar.  

11. Expectation: You'll join that cool, new, high-tech gym that will motivate you to go.

  Reality: Bank balance says, "no."  

12. Expectation: You'll easily be able to avoid snacking between meals.

  Reality: A life without snacking is not a life worth living.   How many of you can relate? Don't be shy, spill the beans! Source: BuzzFeed

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. 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.

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.
