Turn off your phone to boost your self-esteem

July 15, 2015 2 min read

There are three things I make sure I have every time I leave my apartment. My keys, my wallet and my phone.  I need my phone to get through my day, what else would I do while I'm on break at work or bored for those 5 minutes? With smartphones today, everything is in one convenient place. I get all my emails, Facebook updates, Instagram notifications,  and texts as soon as they come in. Day or night I know what is going on. But is this helping or hurting us? I can see everything everyone is doing and I share what I am doing. But we obsess over how many likes something gets or if anyone comments on that picture of me in my swimsuit. I even bring my phone to bed with me! I need to know what is going on as soon as it happens. It seems as though we are never able to be completely shut off from technology! We need to unplug ourselves from this unrealistic world we see on Facebook and other social media sites. All day we look at pictures of other people - both celebrates and our friends, and only end up feeling terrible because we sit there comparing ourselves to them, lowering our self-esteem. Comparing not only looks, money or material possessions'  but in success, or what adventure they may be on. We need to put down our phones, turn them off and enjoy dinners with friends! Focusing on them and not about who commented on the selfie that we just posted. Read a book on your lunch break (instead of scrolling through Instagram) and I guarantee you'll be glad you did! Ditch the phone when you can, it shouldn't be an extension of your body. Source: Elite Daily

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.
