Relationships: Stay Sexy, Stay Strong and Stay Together

May 05, 2015 3 min read

Just like your exercise routine, if you want relationshipsto run smoothly, you’ve got to work at it to keep seeing results. Same breeds same and change breeds change. The first 6 months to 2 years of your relationships are always the most effortlessly exciting, because the newness creates the passion for you. After that - well, it’s going to take a little work.
“A lot of couples think that if we have to work at it, there is something wrong with us, “ says Sheryl Kingsberg, a doctor of reproductive biology at Case Western Reserve University. “Smart couples, though, know that long term relationship require effort to keep the energy alive.”
If you want to keep your relationship’s engines revving, then read on. We’ve got some strategies. Sexy dynamo Mae West said it best: “I never said it was going to be easy, I only said it would be worth it.” Strategy: Be a showoff Being shy in your own skin can lead to serious issues between the sheets. If you’re obsessing about what you think your body looks like, you’re not fully living the moment. This takes all the fun out of sex. Women in particular tend to let their body blues get in the way of their libido. Ladies, here’s good news; there’s a quick fix. Simply do something that makes you feel sexy before you actually have sex. Get a bikini wax, don your favourite lingerie, or just have a shower and shave. You don’t even have to get naked if that makes you feel too uncomfortable. Throw on a teddy sans underwear, or one of your guy’s t-shirts. Trust this: If you feel sexy and are ready to go, he won’t care what you’re wearing. 15+-+1 Strategy: Be good to yourself Staying in shape, eating well, getting lots of sleep and reducing stress are the keys to a healthy life in and out of the bedroom. A healthy and balanced life will help you feel and look better, which increases confidence and this confidence extends to the bedroom. The reverse holds true as well; having a healthy sex life is linked to better overall health. In fact, a recent study reveals that men who have an orgasm two times a week live longer. Nice. Take that one to the bank, guys. Can you say, Honey! I’m home! giphy Strategy: Take initiative You’ve got to make things happen. If you expect great sex to jump out and hit you in the nether regions, you’re going to be waiting a long time. Between work, household chores and family, you’ve got a lot going on. Here’s the truth: Romance doesn’t have to be spontaneous. Real romance (forget fairy-tales, kids!) and moreover, long-term romance takes effort. Send the kids to a sitter, don’t agree to work late again, leave the dishes in the sink - do what you gotta do and rest assured, these little compromises won’t affect your life will and a little time between the sheets will actually make it much better. tumblr_n5u3nveQIi1r4ueyro1_500 Strategy: Size matters...and then again it really doesn’t Grand gestures of passion are often the status quo at the beginning of relationships. As time goes on and the comfort level grows, these overtures usually diminish - and that’s OK. Remember, this is real life we’re talking about.
You don’t always have to go big to go home. Guys, sometimes taking out the trash without being asked or cleaning your beard clippings out of the sink is all your gal needs to get in the mood.
Ladies, he doesn’t always want to have to make the first move. This isn’t to say you have to slap on some crotchless panties and set up a pole in the living room. Try rubbing his thigh while watching a movie, or hell - if he’s not getting the message, tell him you’ve got something really important to show him and lead the way. He’ll follow. The takeaway point from all of this is that in real life setting the stage requires thoughtful effort - a sort of caring that you often don't see in Romance films where grand gestures lead the way.

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

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. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
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.

To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

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.
