At 322lbs, Her Son Was Her Weight Loss Inspiration

April 07, 2015 2 min read

 At Bodyrock, we LOVE transformation stories because they inspire us to be even better at our jobs. Although Erica has never stated to follow Bodyrock, I couldn't help but share her incredible story with all of you. She is proof that you can make a change, no matter what your circumstance.

Erica told Everyday Health of her turning point:

"My son asked me to play on the floor with him. I was sitting on the couch and the mere thought of getting up, laying down on the floor, and having to pick up the toys was so exhausting that I told him no....That was terrifying. I went to weigh myself and saw 322 pounds on the scale. My heart sank."

 Erica stayed motivated throughout (and still does) by tracking her fitness journey on Instagram.

"The hardest workout you'll ever do is in your head. Not with a trainer or fitness guru. It'll be with yourself. It'll be that moment your head and heart say give up and that passion and want inside of you fights back" Screen Shot 2015-04-06 at 5.15.16 PM

"Before, I let the weight define me and my boundaries. Now, I don't. I make the rules."

What does Erica eat? Five egg whites and a whole wheat English muffin for breakfast daily, then a nonfat yogurt as a snack two hours later. For lunch and dinner she has 4 ounces of lean meat, 1/2 cup of a carb and tons of veggies. In the afternoon, she'll snack on sugar-free Jello or 100-calorie popcorn and enjoy a post workout protein shake. Erica believe in practicing moderation - not depriving herself.

Screen Shot 2015-04-06 at 5.14.51 PM Erica also has some awesome advice for those looking to lose weight: "We are moms, wives, daughters — we have enough chores in these roles. We don't need to make what we do for ourselves a chore. Make this fun. It's your time! Learn to make the gym your happy place: Buy a new workout tank; download some new jams; make friends there and think of them as family...... I've learned to be patient about the rest of the weight loss.....Instead of always being down on yourself for how much more you have to go, why don't you look back at all you've already done." Well done Erica! [H/T Yahoo! Health]

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.
