The biggest food trend in 2019 was plant-based meats and veganism. Going plant-based has swept the globe from vegan celebrities endorsing its benefits to influential bloggers and athletes. We’re seeing an explosion of people curious about going plant-based or reducing their meat intake.

This curiosity is what inspired us to write ourPlant-Based Vegan Eating Guide.

Thousands of our BodyRockers are plant-based—including some of our trainers—and even more were writing to us asking if we had a plant-based nutrition guide. We realized we didn’t and got to work fixing the problem. The result is a comprehensive ebook that can help eat greener and stay healthy.


Vegan Celebrities 

These are just some of the many vegan celebrities that have adopted a plant-based lifestyle and why they choose to make the switch.

 

Zac Efron

This former teen heartthrob switched to a plant-based diet in 2018 in a bid to take better care of himself. He aspires to live a long and healthy life and felt that veganism was the best way to achieve that. 

 

Gisele Bündchen

Famous supermodel, wife to Tom Brady and UN environmental ambassador Gisele embraced the vegan lifestyle to help save the environment. Being a native to Brazil, she felt strongly about eliminating her meat consumption as the farming industry is one of the biggest threats to the Amazon rainforest.

 

Natalie Portman

Portman has been a vegetarian since childhood but after reading Eating Animals by Jonathan Foer, overnight she transitioned to veganism. She is perhaps one of the most outspoken vegan celebrities, encouraging people who want to stop the inhumane treatment of animals and destruction of the environment to adopt a plant-based diet. 

 

Ariana Grande 

Pop singer Ariana Grande’s love for animals is what pushed her into adopting a whole foods plant-based diet. She’s even come out and said that she prefers animals to humans. Grande also attributes a vegan diet with increased happiness and longevity. 

 

Venus Williams

Superstar tennis player made news when she became vegan to better manage her autoimmune disorder, Sjögren's syndrome. She began as a raw food vegan but has since relaxed and added some cooked items to her plant-based diet.

 

Woody Harrelson

This well-known vegan celebrity has been a vegan for over two decades! He’s pushing sixty but he cites that his abundance of energy and youthful appearance is because of his raw vegan diet. In recent years he’s begun advocating for the environment and urging people to reduce their meat intake. 

 

Miley Cyrus 

Like Ariana, actress and singer Miley Cyrus's compassion for animals is what turned her vegan. Marrying her love for fashion, sustainability and animals she now actively endorses and works with major labels to create vegan fashion-forward apparel.

 

Liam Hemsworth 

Thanks to the influence of his ex-wife Miley Cyrus and co-star Woody Harrelson, Hemsworth went vegan for health reasons and to support animal rights. 

 

James Cameron

Award-winning director Cameron turned to veganism to reduce his carbon footprint. What started out as a way to do his part in saving the planet turned into an admiration for the side-effects for eating a plant-based diet - namely, longevity, vibrant health and a better sex life.

 

Vegan Celebrities 

Veganism and plant-based diets are more than just a health trend; many plant-based followers believe it’s the future of eating. Whether for your health or the health of the planet and it’s creatures, if you’re ready to go plant-based be sure to do your homework and pick up a copy of ourPlant-Based Vegan Eating Guide to make sure your transition is a smooth one.

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.
