Couple Who Were Bullied At School For Being Fat Become Competitive Body Builders

June 08, 2015 2 min read

Jordan Saunders and Ray Bath were bullied for being overweight as children. But these days, it is a different story. The engaged couple met at the gym. They now own a their own personal training business and are getting married next September in Cyprus. Saunders says, "both me and Ray have beat the bullies to bag our buff bodies -- and each other. When the pictures of us posing on stage in a bodybuilding contest came out  had people who had teased me at school asking for weight loss tips. Suddenly all these people who had called me names when we were teenagers came out of the woodwork and were asking how they cold get in great shape." While studying Sports Science in university, Saunders began working as a personal trainer at a gym where she met Bath. They began training together and setting goals to work toward together. He confided in her that he had been bullied as well and that bonded them even more. It wasn't long before they decided to take their fitness to the next level and compete in bodybuilding competitions. They began a calorie controlled diet and worked out 7 times a week. She says, "when I started to feel confident about my figure for the first time in my life I decided it would be worth doing something to prove to other what I had achieved. Ray was in really good shape and had great definition. I thought he looked better than most bodybuilders so I convinced him to take part in the competition as well." In October 2014 they competed in the Miami Pro UK Championships where Bath finished 5th. In April the took part in the Miami Pro World Championship where Saunders finished 6th in the beach body category and 7th in the fitness category. Of their union Bath says, "It is overwhelming to find someone who shares our passion, who you get along with and who you think highly of to be next to you throughout your journey. I feel like we are really creating something together." It really does sound like they are creating something together. What do you think?

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.
