What to Say When Your Guy is Criticizing His Own Body

October 08, 2015 2 min read

Although there are multiple dads out there that are talking about their “dad bod,” there are others who rather not be open about their bald spot or beer gut. They literally hate those features about themselves. There was a poll that indicated that over the last three decades, the percentage of dissatisfaction that men have with their body has went up to 43 percent from 15 percent. The numbers are similar to women and their body image as well. However, the difference with men is that they are least likely to get any type of help with their body. Just like any insecurity, body issues tend to put pressure on your body, which can impact your sex life with your significant other. Whether he is worried about the shape of his pecs or his package size, try some of the following tips from O’Reilly to boost his confidence. skipping fat talk

Skipping Fat Talk

When you complain about your thighs, just to make your man feel better about his belly, it does more damage than you think. You may have good intentions while doing this, but body-shaming can be contagious. It’s best to surround yourself with those who are positive about their body image. It can really change how you feel about your own body.

Giving Honest Compliments

Guys crave honest compliments, just as much as you do. Tell him the most attractive parts of his body and be specific. Also, show love for his other attributes, such as his style or how he always makes you laugh. By helping build his self-esteem, you can boost how he feels about his body. Healthy decisions will allow him to feel better over time. However, never nag him about going to the gym. Instead, set up a date to do something together. Exercise certainly changes the way people feel about their body. Couples who commit to working out together will be able to stick to the program easier. Do you experience this with your guy? We would love to hear. Source: Womens Health Mag Do you follow us on Instagram? [caption id="attachment_112632" align="alignnone" width="100"]snapchat code @BodyRockTV[/caption]

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 2-3 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.
