A Mother of Triplets Shows Qualifies for the Bikini Fitness World Finals

November 20, 2015 2 min read

You don't hear of someone giving birth to triplets all that often, and when you do, you might not associate them with fitness modeling competitions, but why not?

One mother's rise to the top in the fitness world.

Victoria Steede, 30, who lives in Stockport, is a mother of triplets and a personal trainer. After winning the regional heat in Manchester, she has now qualified for the world finals of a fitness modeling competition called the Pure Elite World Championship which takes place in Kent next week.

Her partner, Mark Dewhirst, who is a Royal Marine, is very supportive of her training, while her  six-year-old girls Scarlet, Gabriella and Macey Rose, inspire her constantly to work as hard as she can.

And while there's no knocking her accomplishments, Victoria still says that people criticize her for her physique. "When I first started competing I found people were quite judgmental - people are very quick to judge. There probably are still people who say they're not quite sure about what I do, but I also find I get a lot of respect - you have to be dedicated," she said.

Of her fitness level, Victoria says she has always been an active person. "I've been competing for about three years now. I'm very busy looking after my triplets, but I'm very organised and I love doing what I do - it's my passion, so it's easier to be motivated. I've always been into my fitness; I was sporty when I was younger. I'm really excited about being in the finals but I am a bit nervous as there will be more competition. I train hard but I love it. The hardest thing is the dieting. I have a wonderful partner, Mark, who has served 14 years with the Royal Marines, and who supports me in all my training and competing and helps with my girls too."

Victoria hopes that being so fit will rub off on her children, inspiring them to work hard and reach their goals, like she has done, clear in her achievements, one of them being her awards. For instance, she won the title of "Mums who Lift" at a Pure Elite event.

Her toughest challenge will be the finals in Kent, however, which will feature athletes and models worldwide with the same end goal in mind.

"I really enjoy the more 'girly' side to being a fitness model - it's like a hybrid between a beauty pageant and competitive fitness," Victoria said. "We have to wear make-up and different outfits so that element of it is fun." The competition will occur on November 22.

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 (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 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.
