Fit And Fabulous At 50! One Woman's Inspiring Story

November 23, 2015 2 min read

Sometimes we get the sense that fitness can only happen when you are young. If you are over 40, nearing 50, and never been fit before, you can forget about it. But, of course, that isn't really the case at all. At 46 years old, Wendy Mills made a goal. She told her self that she would be her fittest by her 50th birthday. Weighing 225 pounds, she knew it would be a real challenge. But by taking her large goal, and breaking it down into smaller ones, she proved that being fit at 50, is possible -- even if you've never been fit before. "I knew I would have to lose about 100 pounds!" she says. "So I started setting smaller goals, like giving up fast food or going for a walk." In this manner, she was able to lose 55 pounds.

Don't be afraid to change it up

When she hit 170 pounds, the scale stopped moving. It was at that point, she hired a personal trainer and began to do strength training. Mills admits that she was terrified at first. But once she started this new path, she realized that her mindset had changed. She was no longer focused on losing weight by 50, "my goals became strength-related," she explains.  She now works out in her home which she has equipped with weights, a bench, resistance bands and medicine balls. Wendy reached her goal 2 years early and has maintained her new lifestyle.  "I am now aiming for fit at 60!" she says. "I have not lost my motivation." Weighing 124 pounds, she's a true inspiration!

Wendy's willpower tips:

Wendy's advice for anyone just starting out is as follows:
  1. Find someone you can be accountable to, such as a workout partner.
  2. Track your progress.
  3. Set a monthly fat loss goal. Do not weigh yourself every day.

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.


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.
