Can We Just Kill This Thigh Gap Conversation Already?

May 29, 2014 2 min read

So when all of this thigh gap stuff started popping up, people immediately took sides and got offended. That's what the internet is for after all. People were mad if they had one and didn't want one, didn't have one and wanted one, had one and wanted one and didn't have one and didn't want one. Basically, everyone with legs was offended. I personally don't get it. I've never looked at someone who had a thigh gap and thought they were more or less attractive. Similarly, I've never looked at a person who didn't have a thigh gap and thought they were more or less attractive. I understand attraction is a personal preference, but it just seems like a strange quality to like or dislike.  And apparently the individuals at College Humour agree. The video below is not informative in any way, but makes fun of the situation. And so it should be. Why does it matter if someone does or doesn't have a thigh gap? I'll tell you - it doesn't. "So why are you bringing it up now BodyRock if you don't want to talk about it?" Because even though we're sick of hearing about it, doesn't mean it's not having negative effects. Young women are OBSESSED with the thigh gap. Having one, not having one, whatever. Regardless of what the fixation is, obsessing over changing your body is not healthy. We need to stop this conversation but not ignore why it started. We need to teach each other to love our bodies. Strive for health and fitness - not obscure milestones. So lets settle this once and for all. People that have thigh gaps are beautiful. People that don't have thigh gaps are beautiful. Having one does not imply you are anorexic. Just like not having one does not imply you are overweight. The gap between your thighs is more related to your bone structure than your body mass. Now...can the internet just shut up and get back to watching cat videos already?

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 1-2 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

Free Shipping: We are thrilled to now offer free shipping at checkout! If you choose this option at checkout, your order will be delivered ground within 5-7 business days.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number.
