Weight Room Over Weight

I talk about body image A LOT. Body image can refer to a lot of different things, it can relate to eating disorders, societal pressures of beauty standards, transformation stories, and it can be a big or radical subject, or it can be a subtle everyday experience. Typically, this type of story is generally geared towards women, but body image is not a female issue – it’s a HUMAN issue. So, when I stumbled across this story of one man’s inspirational journey I knew it was time to share. It was at a dinner party on Dan Trink’s 25th birthday, 5 months before his wedding that he made the choice. He was 50 lbs overweight, and he says that he felt awful and looked worse. So he mumbled, “I think I’ve had enough,” and referring to much more than the food at the dinner party, this is where his transformative journey started. [caption id="attachment_59609" align="alignnone" width="376"]Dan Trink before Dan Trink before[/caption] Walking in blind, he made changes to his diet, massively increased his physical activity, and started seeing changes just two months in, losing 51lbs by his wedding. That was just the beginning. After the honeymoon, looking at pictures of himself he realized that he still didn’t look the way he wanted to. That’s when the research started – learning about nutrition and strength training, and applying it to his life. People started taking notice, and that’s what led to the next amazing step in his journey, becoming a personal trainer. He connected with Joe Dowdell at Peak Performance, did training, built a huge clientele, and ended up taking over as the Director of Training at Peak.

You can read his whole story in his own words here – get ready to be inspired.

Shipping & Delivery

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.
