Why Victoria's Secret Angel 6-Packs Aren't Actually Healthy

August 04, 2015 2 min read

You look at the bodies of Elsa Hosk or Candice Swanepoel and think one word: goals. elsa hosk fitness But these professionally pretty people weren't born with rock hard abs. These girls have trained extremely diligently to sculpt their goddess bodies. Their super lean, fabulously toned frames are enviable. The question is, are they actually healthy? Victoria's Secret models are a rare breed of women whose bodies can reach that level of fitness. Not everyone's figure can withstand the regimes these girls go through, and not everyone would want to. candice swanepoel workout “When you’re trying to get really lean — we’re talking visible abs, not just a healthy and fit body — you’re going against your body’s cues,” explains Ryan Andrews, MS, RD. "If you want to get it to that next level of leanness, you’re going to be hungry pretty much all the time, no matter what you eat.” Good genes play a huge role in how the model's bodies respond to shredding their cores. Angels like Izabel Goulart are born with a genetic advantage, but still have to put in tireless hours to maintain their washboard abs. izabel goulart abs The lifestyle of keeping in VS Model shape can be exhausting both physically and mentally. Restricting calories, working out endlessly and feeling pressure to look a certain way all the time isn't a sustainable way to live in the long run. The best body is a healthy, fit and happy body. Whether you achieve abs or not, listening to your system's cues and finding a balanced way to stay fit and eat well can be summed up in one word: goals.

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.

Clothing

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.
