Fitness Fanatic Shows Off Incredibly Toned Butt And Abs. You'll Never Guess Her Age!

January 06, 2016 3 min read

The fountain of youth may not be a myth! Or at least that seems to be the case for Laura Gordon from Charlotte, North Carolina. Her banging body is tight, toned and nothing short of inspirational. fitfan3 It is no surprise that this fitness queen has over 451,000 followers on Instagram. What is surprising, however, is that Gordon is 48 years old! She admits that while she hasn't worked professionally in the fitness industry, she does treat her fitness routine as a second job. fitfan4 fitfan5 Gordon says, "I'm not a fitness professional or fitness model and I've never done anything fitness for a career. I don't love working out. It is like a job. Being fit is your pay check and the workout is the difficult job to do." Gordon was 23 when she first discovered exercise. She had spent years working in an office only to come home and spend her evenings lounging on the sofa. She felt like her body was beginning to "sag." To stop this 'problem' in its tracks, Gordon began doing home fitness DVDs. Since then, she's been virtually unstoppable with her longest workout break lasting only one week. fitfan2 Gordon has workout equipment at home because she finds it more convenient than having to travel to the gym each day. So, how exactly does she do it? Three one-hour sessions of weight training every week. One session focuses on upper body, another for the lower body and the third session is mixed. She also does five sessions with her workout videos. [bctt tweet="Fitness Fanatic Shows Off Incredibly Toned Butt And Abs. You'll Never Guess Her Age!"] fitfan7 fitfan8 Her efforts to look her best do not end with her exercise routine, they also include keeping a close eye on nutrition. Gordon eats only plain, whole foods. She doesn't think it is necessary to give up junk food completely, but says that she just prefers to leave it alone. "When friends and relatives see me, they will always say 'you're so lucky you are thin and can eat whatever you want,'" she says. "I explain that I eat healthy food all the time, that's why I'm not fat. Please don't call me lucky for making daily sacrifices that you are not making." fitfan6 Gordon does not alter or edit her photos, and does not take any supplements. Everything you see is built through hard work and diet. She started her Instagram account after noticing that various companies and websites were using her images without permission to falsely promote their products. Gordon believes it is important for people to understand where her body came from and not be tricked into purchasing some 'miracle' product. She says, "all over Instagram I saw my glute and leg photos that went viral [SIC] and this is at the age of 45! This was quite a shock to me. My photos were everywhere but when I searched my name nothing came up. Thousands of people were re-posting my photos but not a single person listed my name or the fact that I was in my mid-forties. It is very important to me that people don't use my photos to trick people into buying that nonsense. Fit teas don't make a person fit, hard work and eating right does." Gordon is right. A body like that takes work and dedication. While Gordon has been following her workout routine for more than two decades, it is never too late to get started. Gordon built this body from home and you can do exactly the same.

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.
