Earth Day Series – The Life of the Body Bar

GreenBB

Happy Earth Day!  Body Bar is not only an advocate for health but for our environment as well.  To help do our part for the environment we make an effort to recycle as much material as possible.  The life of a Body Bar can last forever since the core of the Bar is made of steel.  With the help from our customers around the United States, we help keep the life of the Body Bar going.

The life of the Body Bar starts at our warehouse where we pack and ship all customer orders.

Body Bars packed and ready to go!

For individual customers, the life of the Body Bar can last forever.  For clubs though, the Body Bar gets a lot of love and normal wear and tear can occur.

Of course clubs aren’t happy when this happens, just look how worn out those Body Bars look!  But do not fear, we like taking back overly loved Bars.  All clubs have to do is buy the replacement bars for about 60% off MSRP whenever they feel their Body Bars (or any other brand of weighted exercise bar) is getting too much love.  For more details on the Exchange Program click here.

When a club decides to go through with an Exchange, we ship them the new Body Bars first.  We include return shipping labels as well since we want the old Bars back to our warehouse.  Once the club unpacks their brand new Body Bars, they just have to throw the old Bars in the boxes, slap on the labels and we’ll schedule a FedEx pick up.  Then we wait to receive back the old Bars.

Body Bars we received back during an Exchange. These are one of the first Body Bars we made!

Now that we have the old bars, we strip it all the way down to the steel! We put on new rubber tubing, end caps and labels.  Then we re-sell these bars as refurbished Body Bars.  They look & feel brand new but we add a discount to encourage everyone to buy recycled material!

And in honor of Earth Day, we’ll be giving everyone FREE shipping on all refurbished bars this week!  We love being green and we hope you’ll help our efforts to recycle!
