This Woman Will Change Everything You Thought You Knew About Body Image

May 28, 2015 2 min read

The classic weight loss before and after shot often features on one side: a once heavier person, always looking a little bemused by the situation, slouched over revealing their "unwanted" flab. The opposite side shows them looking fit and toned, after many weeks or months of hard work. This before and after selfie of Taryn Brumfett's...well it's a little different. Tary-Brumfitt-Embraceframe Taryn is a 36 year old mom of three who boldly made the decision to enter a bikini competition after struggling with achieving a positive body image. She thought her rock-hard abs and muscular arms would have her feeling a hell of a lot sexier, slimmer and more confident. Taryn recalls what she used to tell her reflection in the mirror, before getting fit. "You are so disgusting. You shouldn’t go out. Your husband doesn’t want to be with you. You are gross. Look at how your tummy wobbles.'' img_52b6b36d8ff27 So she fought against these thoughts. She lost weight, entered the bikini contest and considered going under the knife for a boob job and tummy tuck. But nothing took away those thoughts, and Taryn began to realize she wouldn't be able to teach her children about loving themselves when she was striving so hard to escape her self-hate. ''We are constantly told to be something other than what we are,'' she says. ''That we are gross or that we need to change ... We're not encouraged to love our bodies unless they conform to one idea of beauty ... but beauty is so much more." taryn She started a blog, which has turned into a movement, which then turned into a documentary. The Embrace movement inspires women all over the world to love their bodies. As for Taryn, she has gained back the weight and has begun doing good for her body by healthy eating and loving herself. Her real self. What do you think of Taryn's inspiring story and message?

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.

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.
