This Weight Loss Story Proves 50 is the New 30!

November 26, 2015 2 min read

Joanne Hickox started out like so many of us. She was a yo-yo dieter who hated exercise. And, like many of us, she was okay with this. She was resigned to being "fluffy." Take or leave it, right? But, all that changed when her daughter announced her wedding date. The thought of wearing a mother-of-the-bride dress was enough to put an end to her excuses. Weighing 170 pounds, the 59 year old, Joanne, signed up for a bootcamp. Almost immediately, she wanted to quit -- a class populated by 20 sometimes was more than she could take. But she ignored this instinct and stuck with it. “I’m so glad that I stayed and know now that I can do whatever the younger girls do,” she says. The bootcamp created a perfect environment for Joanne's success, with intense activity and a build in support system. “It’s so much easier to push past that last set when you know 30 women are doing the same thing,” Joanne explains.

Standing tall

Being a part of this sort of community helped Joanne to see that what she truly needed to be healthy was not another diet but a lifestyle change. She took this opportunity to educate herself on clean eating practices. Unfortunately, as we know, sometimes a lifestyle change can bring out the naysayers and diet saboteurs, but Joanne was able to tune them out! “You’ve got to learn to stand up for yourself and do what you know is the best for your health.” And stand up she did. Now 40 pounds lighter and 8 dress sizes smaller, she's completed a 7-mile obstacle course that included mud, water and a 9 foot wall! “I feel better now than I did in my 30s. I can do anything," Joanne says. Joanne-Hickox [bctt tweet="This Weight Loss Story Proves 50 is the New 30!"] Indeed, she can do anything. And so can you.

Joanne's rules:

To keep herself on track, Joanne followed 3 simple rules:
  1. Rise and exercise. “It’s become a part of my routine every am at 5:30.”
  2. Adjust your attitude. “If I have the “can do” attitude, I can finish what I started."
  3. Be patient. “You didn’t put on all that weight overnight and you will NOT loose it over night.”

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.
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.
