We can probably all agree that the whole thigh gap trend needs to disappear and there is nothing wrong with the insides of your legs touching! BUT, having said that, toning this area can be the key to rocking super strong, super sexy legs. In a quest to discover how you can master the inner thigh, Women's Health turned to their favourite trainers.

Here are their top moves for tightening and toning this trouble zone.


Why this move rocks: It may be a small move but it is super effective, explains David Jack, a fitness expert and certified strength and conditioning specialist. Bonus, you'll get a slight core workout as those muscles are engaged to counter the leg movements.

How to do it:Lie on your left side on the floor. Loop a mini-band around both ankles. Rest your had on your left arm, and brace your right hand on the floor in front of your chest. (A).Without moving any other part of your body, raise your right leg as high as you can (B). Pause, then return to the starting position.


Why this move rocks: "These work every muscle of the lower body," says, Craig Ballantyne, a certified trainer and author of Turbulence Training. "To target your inner thighs even more, just take a wider stance."

How to do it:Hold a dumbbell vertically next to your chest, with both hands cupping the dumbbell head (A). Lower your body as far as you can by pushing your hips back and bending your knees (B). Pause, then push yourself back to the starting position.


Why this move rocks: With side-to-side movement, this move targets your adductors, or your inner thighs says strength and conditioning coach Mike Boyle. Plus, it is great for quads and glutes too!

How to do it:Place your hands on your hips, pull your shoulders back, and stand as tall as you can (A). Lift your left foot, and take a big step to your left as you push your hips backward and lower your body by dropping your hips and bending your left knee (B). Pause, then quickly push yourself back to the starting position.

Why this move rocks: This move targets the hamstrings as well as the adductors. AND it can help you develop a round butt, says, Tony Gentilcore, a certified personal trainer and strength and conditioning specialist.

How to do it:Attach a rope handle to the low pulley of a cable machine. Grab an end of the rope in each hand, and stand with your back to the weight stack. Bend at your hips and knees, and lower your torso until it's at about a 45-degree angle to the floor (A). Thrust your hips forward, and raise your torso back the starting position (B).


Why this move rocks: Celeb personal trainer Ashley Borden, says this multitasking move targets your inner thighs, quads, hamstrings, glutes, core, and shoulders!

How to do it:  Grasp a head of a heavy dumbbell in each hand, and hold the weight at arm's length in front of your waist. Set your feet at about twice your shoulder width with your toes turned out slightly (A). Brace your abs, and lower your body as far as you can by pushing your hips back and bending your knees (B).Pause, then slowly push yourself back to the starting position.

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 1-2 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 1-2 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. 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.
