There's no doubt women and girls have long lived in a world where the pressures to look a certain way takes a toll on their mental and physical wellbeing. Thankfully, people and movements are working hard to fix that, but still, there are some seriously messed up body concerns that are disturbingly too common. 7 Body Concerns You Need to Give Up Right Now These concerns result in a lack of self worth and harmful habits. For instance, over a third of 6 to 12 year-olds have dieted, and many say they would prefer to be stupid as opposed to fat. Furthermore, nearly half of first to third grade girls yearn to slim down the National Eating Disorder Association reports. A recent Glamour study even discovered that readers had a negative thought about their bodies once per hour. And the concerns are so outlandish. Here are seven of the biggest body concerns:

1. Thigh Gap

Simply put, the thigh gap is stupid. You can be overweight and have one, and skinny and not have one, and vice versa. It's a silly tool for measuring someone's hotness.

2. Bikini Bridge

This is the gap that happens when your bikini bottom rests on your protruding hip bones. Women who have this like to brag about it, making others envy it and try to achieve it by getting thinner. But it's not just about being skinny. It's about body type. And who even cares about this anyway?

3. That Weird Collarbone Thing

Some people seem to think that thin women can fit a bunch of quarters in their collar bone gaps, but believe me, you can be completely svelte and still not be able to do this. Your collar bones don't just pop because you're not carrying extra weight. This is the kind of mentality that is totally unhealthy for your wellbeing.

4. Lips Like Kylie Jenner's

Sure, full lips are hot. But if you're pout isn't as puffy as Kylie's, you shouldn't get down on yourself about it. Your face, and your lips are perfectly perfect just the way they are. Respect yourself by embracing your natural lips and see how much positivity oozes out of you from that one simple tweak.

5. Ear Lobes That Are Detached

For starters, they're ears. Secondly, no one is thinking about whether you have good ears or not. Let them serve their purpose and get on with your wonderful life.

6. Fatty Arm Wings

It's a million degrees outside but you refuse to be caught dead in a tank top out of fear your flabby fat arms will scare everyone in the world away. Your arms don't define you, and whether you're hot or not, they shouldn't deter you from wearing clothes you know you like, or that are the sensible choice.

7. That One Thing You Just Have to Hate for No Reason

Find yourself coming up with the most absurd reason to hate your eyelid? Yeah, you're not doing yourself any favours harping on a "flaw" that no one can see or even care about if they did.

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. 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 4-5 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. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

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.
