Being sexy is a state of mind and beauty may very well be in the eye of the beholder, but this doesn't mean you're out of options when it comes to amping up your universal sex appeal. There's a veritable smorgasbord of ways you can almost instantly make yourself look totally smokeshow, and spoiler alert: they have almost nothing to do with your bra size, waist circumference or thigh gap. They have everything to do with confidence.

Read on to find out five ways you can turn so many heads you'll give the general public whiplash.

1. Stand Up Straight

Body posture affects how we feel. Studies show that when we stand up straighter, we feel better about ourselves. When we feel better about ourselves, we're more confident -- and remember, confidence is a cornerstone of sex appeal.

Standing up straight will also make you look longer and leaner, so there’s definitely more immediately physical benefits of good posture, too.

2. Smile

OK, OK. Let's get one thing straight: we're not talking about being told to smile by some lewd creeper while you're minding your own business walking home from work. We're talking about smiling cause you want to. Because you feel like it. Research indicatesthat smiling instantly increases someone's perceived attractiveness, so, if you're in the mood, slap on a smile. It's your ultimate  (and cheapest) accessory.

3. Wear What You Love

How often in life do we have to shoehorn ourselves into little boxes that are just too cramped before we realize the only way to be happy is to do -- and be -- what we love. High heels may be sexy, but if you can't walk comfortably in them, their sex appeal vanishes. The same can be said for any fashion trend: wear what makes you feel amazing, and you'll exude sexy vibes.

4. Workout!

Seriously. You don't have to go to a bordello-style gym that makes you feel like you have to shower before you even break a sweat. That's not what we're talking about. We're talking about tapping into that feel-good high that comes with that post-workout glow. This high will boost your confidence (super sexy) and research shows working out also makes your skin look better (also, super sexy).

5. Groom!

Should we really have to say this? Spend five minutes on a subway and you’ll know that yes,  unfortunately, we do. It’s amazing how much running a brush through your hair, cleaning your teeth or trimming your nails can make a huge difference to your sex appeal. It’s also amazing how many people seem to forget basic hygiene. A little human groomin’ can go a long way to make you look more appealing. (More than not looking good, being an affront to the senses simply shows a lack of respect to your fellow human beings.) Still, even if you are fundamentally ‘clean’, if you don’t look it, your rate of perceived sexiness will take a hit.

Listen, life shouldn’t be all about how you look. It shouldn’t even be mostly about how you look. But there’s no shame in wanting to look attractive. It doesn’t make you shallow. Or vain. It doesn’t mean you’re simple minded. In fact, it’s healthy to care about your appearance. It shows you are aware of the world around. It shows you are anything but self-absorbed. Becoming fixated on your appearance, of course, can be detrimental, but that’s not what we’re talking about here.

We’re talking about celebrating the body you’re in by wanting to showcase it in its best light. We’re also talking celebrating your fiery, confident, sexy as hell spirit. There’s absolutely no shame in that.

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 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.
