None of us here are underwear models. It’s taken time to accept that we will never be the kind of people in the adverts for lingerie or boxer briefs. It seems crazy that we even aspired to that. But we did. It’s taken time and a bit of maturity to understand that even the models they choose to be in those ads don’t look like they appear in the magazines. How many years have we held ourselves up to this impossible ideal? Feeling lacking because we are not measuring up to the photoshopped images. For me it’s been years. Yes. It effects men too.


The truth is that I will never probably have that kind of body. But I have my body, and it’s served me well so far. I keep training to be stronger, fitter and faster, and I can run and jump and lift. I am beautiful in my own way, as are we all. We have scars and stretch marks and extra skin, and it makes us each who we are. I may not have a chiseled six pack, but let’s be honest together – is that what this is really about? When you make your goals about finding strength both inside and out you can finally drop the added weight of these impossible ideals. Yes we want to be lean and sexy – but that comes from the confidence to stand in your own skin and be proud to accept who you are.


We train here for a life well lived, and that is a goal that is more than skin deep. So today when you strip off your sweaty clothes after your workout, stand for a moment and just be proud of your body and have the courage to own who you are in this moment – not what you want to be or who you hope to be, but what you are now. This is real life, and who you are will always be welcome to train with us. No one here is perfect but we can share the courage to be ourselves. 💕 

XOXO

Lisa- you actually do look like an underwear model. And your abs are chiseled. What your article does show is that if even you doubt that you measure up to ideals, we ALL should be questioning whether our body image is distorted. As someone who hates my tummy, yet gets told that I have a great body, your post inspired me to maybe trust what others see, and take my own perception with a grain of salt. Thank you❤️

Lisa: I may not have a chiseled six pack, but let’s be honest together – is that what this is really about?
My Brain: Well, duh it is. Also, I thought Lisa Was an underwear model. Everyone wants to wear whatever she wears already anyhow.

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.
