20 Reasons Why Strong Trumps Skinny

May 12, 2015 3 min read

Strength is where it's at! Now- we aren't saying that naturally skinny bodies aren't beautiful, because they are - what we're saying is that HEALTHY is beautiful. And healthy means having strong, functional muscles and a strong heart. That's why working out and lifting weights is so amazing! Besides, having muscle makes you toned - and what's not to love about that? To take this a step further "strong" doesn't just apply to your physical attributes - we mean having confidence and determination on and off the gym floor. Here are 20 reasons why strong trumps skinny, any day.

1. Healthy is Sexy

Seeing someone chase their goals, be highly motivated and take care of themselves? Damn that's sexy.

2. You Can Build Your Curves

Want a butt? Get squatting. Want your thighs to slim? Go for it! You have the power to own your body and love it.

3. Your diet isn't just salads anymore

To build muscle, you have to eat - and we love eating.

4. "Woke up wit dis muscle"

Your no flex game is strong - in fact, people ask you if you're flexing in photos all of the time.

5. You don't need men to help you lift anything

In fact, you're downright insulted at the gym if they ask to help you move that 45 plate. Bro - I've got this.

6. You're ready to rock a bathing suit year round

Say hello to my 6 pack - in December

7. You can carry your own weight - literally and figuratively

You are strong and resilient and a powerhouse of a human being.

8. You rock the hell out of whatever you wear

Ain't no way these curves are making it in to vogue - and that's fine. Have you seen your calves in heels? Hell yes.

9. We know just how badass our bodies are

You know your mind will quit before your body - but that's become an entirely new level of challenge for you. Pushing your limits is just part of how awesome you are.

10. People know not to mess with you

You've got those guns to back you up.

11. You own your presence

With your svelte bod and confidence, no one can look away. I mean lets be real, you can squat double your bodyweight or throw a barbell over your head like it's nothing - walking in to a room full of people and looking extra fly is a piece of cake.

12. When people say "go to the bar" you have to clarify

Are we talking deadlifts or a drink?

13. Nitpicking is a thing of the past

Who cares about that zit, have you seen your new muscles? Dayum.

14. You have a newfound respect for your body and it's abilities

It just keeps getting better for you. Only you can figure out how far you can go, and once you reach that point, it’s difficult to ever go back.

15. You just burn your calories - not count them

Deciding what you can or can't eat is a thing of a past. Your muscles are working overtime for you.

16. Overindulging is easier to bounce back from

It's fuel for leg day.

17. You decide how good you look - no one else

You have your own standard of what you want your body to look like - and you damn well better believe you're achieving it.

18. Beauty is what you see - not what a magazine tells you

No beauty standard is ever going to get in the way of how you want your body to look. Bones are in? Great - you have those under all your sexy muscle.

19. You know what power feels like

Power isn't determined by size; real power is any and all physical limits you can push your body to and past

20. Bring on the challenges

You don't shy away from a challenge - in fact, you thrive on it

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.


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.
