Imagine not showering or bathing - ever. Let me get back to this. 
A lot of people understand the need to work hard at their careers. Many of us work hard on our relationships, and I know a lot of us here put in mad effort on our fitness.

We are always working, striving, trying to stay on top. I know from my own personal experience, that even with all of this effort going into my daily life, sometimes I still am left feeling.... conflicted, frustrated and sometimes angry. At what is sometimes hard to pin down. But it always comes back to: shouldn’t I feel better at the end of all this effort? Shouldn’t I feel more at peace and calm?

Here is the secret of what I have discovered, and it’s starting to make a huge difference in my day to day life. 

You need to work on all of the shit that you are carrying around in your head, as much as you are working on your career, relationships and your fitness. 

If you are not working on your emotional well-being, it’s the equivalent of not bathing and the outcome is just as unpleasant, not just for yourself, but those around you. 

You start to stink. 

Not actual stink, but a toxic moodiness build up that trails you with every bit as much offence as a pail of garbage in the sun or a musky, dank b.o.  

Your distracted nature, inability to fully be present in the moment, low grade but constant anger - it’s starts splashing around, robbing you of some of the best moments of your life. 

I started going to therapy to deal with my emotional stink. I’ve been going weekly now for 2 years. For me, it’s like going to a mechanic, having physio on a muscle or joint that needs repair, seeing a personal trainer, or having a shower. It’s basic, emotional hygiene. 
It’s not always easy, sometimes it’s the last thing that I feel like doing, but just like brushing your teeth, it gets done. 

I’m not here to advocate therapy. What I am telling you, is that you need to work on the internal with as much velocity of effort as you are putting into everything else.

The good news is that working on your fitness with us everyday in SweatFlix.com, supports this internal cleanup. Exercise helps to clear your mind, quiet the negative thoughts, and refresh the mind & body. Many of you have experienced this with us. In many ways, it’s the cheapest form of therapy out there.

If you are looking for extra resources, there is a great book called Un-fuck yourself that cuts through the usual BS found in a lot of self help books. It’s a favourite here, and it’s getting passed around the office. 

A final word on emotional hygiene. 
We all need it. To think you don’t, makes you that person at the party who has savage body odour and doesn’t realize it - because very few of us are aware of our own scent (usually until someone points it out). 

Work on your head and your heart, and the rest will start to fall into place. 

To get you started, here is 50% off SweatFlix.com membership for next 6 months.  Simply use code 'SPECIAL50' during checkout. Try our BR20 or the Beginner Bootcamp class - it will help zen you out.

From the heart,
Freddy.

Wow!!! I absolutely love this article. We are always trying to work on our bodies, but oh so true that we need to work on our attitudes and minds. I am thankful for my horses and dogs that help keep me “in the moment”. Not to say that there aren’t times that my attitude gets a little stinky, but they help rein me in. Thank you!

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 2-3 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.
