Fitness Guru Sophie Guidolin Strikes Back at Her Haters Over Gaining Too Much Weight

September 12, 2015 2 min read

Sophie Guidolin has become a controversial figure in the media. From pumping iron during her pregnancy with twins to showing off her incredible post-pregnancy body just two days after giving birth, she has people talking. While some have supported her, others have shunned her for seemingly promoting what seems like an unsafe exercise regimen during her pregnancy, and promoting an unrealistic image of what new moms look like. [caption id="attachment_108850" align="alignnone" width="526"]Sophie Guidolin (Photo: Sophie Guidolin/Instagram)[/caption] Guidolin is back in the media once again, and this time it's because the fitness guru is taking a stand against critics who have actually accused her of gaining too much weight during her twin pregnancy. [caption id="attachment_108848" align="alignnone" width="599"]Sophie Guidolin (Photo: Sophie Guidolin/Instagram)[/caption] An Instagram sensation who is a mother of four children, she has already lost 12 of the 17 kilos she gained while pregnant. To stand up to the haters who are trying to bring her down for gaining weight, she took to social media. [caption id="attachment_108851" align="alignnone" width="578"]Sophie Guidolin (Photo: Sophie Guidolin/Instagram)[/caption] "I was told (by complete strangers across social media, newspapers and media) I was too small, then I was endangering our babies' health by exercising, now I apparently put on "too much" weight whilst I was pregnant," Guidolin wrote.

"This is different to my first pregnancies where I lost next to nothing after birth!' she exclaimed. "I have been eating well and obviously done no exercise postpartum...I am proud of my journey and the way my body has reflected my lifestyle."

Many of her followers sympathized and supported her reaction, one even saying, "People are jealous and rude! You are beautiful and amazing. Ignore them. Your sweet baby girls and you are healthy and that is all that matters!"

What do you think of the controversy surrounding this fitness guru's weight?

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.
