What is Beauty?

Dustin Hoffman Interview: click here

This week I came across an article on Starcrush.com.  Dustin Hoffman (The Graduate) gave an interview to AFI about his work on the film 'Tootsie.'  This wasn't the average interview.  It started when a colleague asked him, "How would YOU be different if you were a woman."  And in his discovery of this he captured something I have struggled with my whole life...and something that isn't exclusively my problem.  It affects women all over the world. And it is this...being seen and being valued only for the beauty of your figure and your face. photo 1

 Dustin Hoffman in 'Tootsie'

Dustin was put through rigorous makeup tests to transform him into a woman.  He told the producers after the final makeup test if they could now make him into a beautiful woman.  He was told "this is as good as it gets."  How many of us have had those words float through our heads?  Hoffman went home and cried to his wife saying that there had been so many women throughout his life that he had met and hadn't given the time of day because they did not rise to his standard of attractiveness. It's something that plagues us all...and that we have all have taken part in.  The discounting of others and ourselves because we and they aren't our vision of beauty.  And it needs to change.  And where it changes is with us.  If we put our own value down to skin deep beauty we do ourselves and others a disfavor. Who do we miss out on knowing because they aren't "beautiful?"  What happens when we teach our daughters that their value is in their contribution to the world, their brains, their capacity to love?  Try it and see the change it brings.

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.

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.
