October 08, 2015 2 min read

It is time to stop hiding yourself away under your gym shirt. That's right, show a little love for your body by stripping down. No, we aren't suggesting going 'girls out' braless, we're just saying drop that top layer. Your body is fab, your taking care of it. Embrace it.

But even if showing off your fine shape isn't really your thing, here are 9 reasons you might consider popping off that top when you hit your next sweat session.

1. Because Isn’t it Getting Hot in Here?

Yes, yes it is. But maybe it is just you steaming up the joint with your beauty bod.

2. You’re More Aerodynamic

Could peeling that layer lead to your fastest mile yet? You won't know if you don't try...

3. You Can Finally Unleash Your Cute Sports Bra

Why buy those super cute sports bras if you are never going to let it see the light of day? Your bra deserves some attention too!

4. You Can Keep a Better Eye On Your Form

The best way to keep track of your core during yoga, jogging or lifting is to actually be able to see it.

5. Crop Tops are Hot Right Now

You wear crop tops to brunch with the girls and out on dates. So, why not the gym?

6. You Won't Get Awkward Sweat Marks

Yes, getting a good sweat going is a badge of honour at the gym but sometimes you just don't want the world to see how drenched you get. So, whip off that top and get back to it!

7. You'll Show Off Head-Turning Muscles That Don't Get Much Love

You spent all those hours working on your back and shoulders but never really let them see the light of day. Change all that!

8. You'll Look Like You Mean Business

People are going to look at you and think "wow, her workout is about to get so crazy intense that her shirt will only get in the way!" How amazing is that?

9. You'll Have Less Laundry to Do

Like this isn't the best reason. No sweat, no need to wash. Less laundry, less folding. Win.

Would you ever consider going topless at the gym? Why or why not?

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.
