Bodyrock.tv 2012 | Tits & Ass – a Real Life Web Drama

Bodyrock.tv 2012 is all Tits & Ass & More like a Real Life Web Drama than a Fitness Website!

There, I said it!

It has been quite some time since I visited the fitness website bodyrock.tv.  The Bodyrock.tv of 2012 just does not inspire me and I no longer use it as a recommendation to my clients.  When Zuzana was the face of  bodyrock.tv I told every man, woman and teen to go to bodyrock.tv to learn how they could workout at home more efficiently and could no longer use the excuse:  I don’t have time to workout!  I don’t have time to go to the gym!  I can’t afford the gym!  I just don’t know WHAT to doBodyrock.tv used to be a great resource for me to introduce people to home workouts – however, in 2012 – I no longer feel the same enthusiasm to make such introductions.

I have been criticized for commentary regarding the changes at bodyrock and in particular – my opinion that Lisa-Marie - the host of bodyrock.tv does not represent the image of a “Healthy Woman”.  I am a nutritional therapist and work with women 6 days a week regarding their body image & health.  Every client I have is female and wants to lose weight/fat and tone up.  I personally believe nutrition is 80% of body composition – so with education I can help my clients make better food choices and ultimately weight comes off.  In addition to better food choices – I do like to recommend cardio in the form of H.I.I.T. – high intensity interval training and bodyrock.tv provides great workouts for this.

In the past I was comfortable warning more conservative people to overlook Zuzana’s cleavage because this woman is inspirational, has good form and her workouts are great.  I was told more than once that people found her adorable – didn’t notice the boobs after a bit and really liked the results they get from this style of home workouts.  Many of these people no longer go to BR because they feel instead of having a FITNESS focus – this site is now EGO focused and they find it difficult to now get through the product placements, ads for Pillsbury Cinnamon Buns & Kentucky Fried Chicken.  Bodyrock.tv seems to have become more of a Reality Show – on the web than a fitness focused fitness website.  Because of the even more pornographic and sexually suggestive photos in 2012 – more and more old school bodyrockers feel less and less comfortable viewing bodyrock at work (even at lunch) or around anyone they know.  Hiding their fitness site from their children and mothers.  That’s – not a favorable change for many.  Even though cleavage has always been a selling point – the overall feel of the site really has gotten more soft porny in its photos and marketing.  It has lost credibility for many who used to be able to overlook Freddy’s fetishes.

BLAME THE PRODUCER and the CAMERAMAN is all I am going to say!

(besides: superficial ego driven money hungry porn king who takes advantage of insecure women)

I had written a very different post that I liked better than this one – however when I went to hit save draft – - – it all disappeared – some would say that was a sign!  The reason I use the Godfather 3 quote Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in. – - is because even though I wasn’t liking the new direction bodyrock was going in – I kept going back to the website to see what was going on.  Finally, I made myself stop.  Then some comments came in on my post “Bodyrock not Appropriate for Work???” last week.  Some people do not agree with me – others do.  Recently, a commenter posted a photo along with their comments and I did not take a closer look at it until several days later.  Damn it – - – Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in.

lisa-marie-bodyrock-sad-lostYou have to understand – I have not been to the bodyrock website in nearly 6 weeks – so to see this photo – - – it was QUITE shocking.  Again I ask – - – IS THIS the picture of a “HEALTHY WOMAN”?

Sadly – I do not think Lisa-Maria looks well here.  Look at her eyes!  I fully agree with the commenter’s added text – - Lisa-Maria looks Sad & Lost -and that is heartbreaking.  As a woman – looking into the eyes of another woman – (we ALL STRUGGLE WITH IMAGE – -  ALL WOMEN) – - – I see and ACTUALLY FEEL the pain and sadness I see in her face.

THIS is what Lisa-Marie looked like the first time I ever saw her November 10, 2010.

BodyRocker Lisa-Marie

lisa-marie-bodyrock-beforeBodyrocker Lisa-Marie before working for Freddy Light.  Lisa-Marie considers her breasts at this size to be “spaniel ears”!  Girl has more of a rack than me!

bodyrock-trashy-porn-site

Today I was on facebook – which is rare for me and gosh darn it if I didn’t see the photo below and totally get sucked in – - – Just when I thought I was out… they pull me back in!

lisa-marie-bodyrock-boobs-hairIt seems as though Lisa-Marie has morphed into the look of the former bodyrock,tv host Zuzana.

The interesting thing for me is – - – I felt like porn was Zuzana’s past – - – her workouts using H.I.I.T. – high intensity interval training changed her life – - outwardly in her physical condition BUT also as a person.  Her workouts brought her physical strength and SELF WORTH, self value and appreciation.  Zuzana’s workout literally breathed LIFE into her!  Watch and Listen to Zuzana in the video Jacked Up Chick Workout!  This is INSPIRING personal transformation.

From where I observe – it seems Lisa-Marie is heading in the wrong direction in the self-esteem and value department since coming into her new employment with bodyrock.

bodyrock-fitness-websiteWhile I was on facebook for all of 7 minutes – I gathered the following comments regarding how other people feel about Lisa-Marie’s new physical appearance - before they are deleted!  I think in summary – the comments mirror how many of my clients and other people I turned on to bodyrock feel.  The focus is no longer on FITNESS – - – it is about egos, vanity, feelings and products – especially PINK PRODUCTS.  I am sure there is a market for them.  I still favor H.I.I.T. – high intensity interval training workouts – which bodyrock does provide – if you can by-pass the drama – good on you!

bodyrockers-comments-facebookBodyrockers comment on Lisa-Marie’s new ‘synthetic look’ – with tits & ass & hair as the focus:

  • You know what? I know it’s your decisions. But I liked you better before all those fake things.
  • i think that by posting ANYTHING on the internet one should be aware, if not certain, that there will be negative feedback as well. i’m not gonna judge her or anything. i enjoyed looking at her as a franklinian Self-Made Woman – she worked hard for everything she represented. what i see now resembles more an artificial doll than real flesh and bones. and it’s not because of the overall look – it’s beause i know it’s fake.  (male)
  • ridiculous. I cannot possibly look at your website at work anymore because my boss thinks I’m looking at naughty pictures or some soft porn site. That is so wrong! Like the comments said above, the new videos are not so terrible but COME ON……..enough with the boob zooming! Freddy we get it, you love her tits. But not all of us do. Take skanky pictures or videos for yourselves in private but don’t pollute your WORKOUT site with them.
  • So all people are doing is commenting on your breasts… What’s the message? Rock your body and be confident, or flaunt Rock-hard-tits? I’m confused.
  • Lisa, ignore the negative comments, those are from women who would kill to look like you…you look great!!! GOOD LUCK ;)
  • I really loved this site and I wanted to aspire to get abs like you, and have the same positive attitude to working out. The main reason I chose your videos is becasue you were one of the few woman on youtube that had a realistic body type and I thought the whole message of bodyrock is being naturally healthy and enjoying how your body is naturally transforming but this new look just confuses me :/
  • I don’t see anything wrong with Lisa’s physical changes, it’s her body, her choice (not for me but it’s not my body). What does bother me is the exploitation of raunchy soft porn like pictures your posting on what is suppose to be a websit…e focussed on working out and improving your physical and mental health. It tells me you value money more than the message you are sending out to your fellow followers that is unless you want more followers who are simply watching verses partaking in the lifestyle. Yes sex sells, but at what cost do you sell your self respect for. Personally no money would be enough for me to pose in these tasteless photo’s. You can still show off your hard work and new boobs without having to literally show them off!!!! So sad that no one posts their scores anymore including Lisa, I guess the workouts aren’t really what’s important anymore.
  • Inna figure and body building competitions do require contestants to where very little to showcase every little muscle. I have friends who compete and I’ve seen many photo’s and none are sexual in any way. If anything they are more mascul…ine and focus is on muscles not boobs, but and whohoo’s. I am pretty sure my cousin (who is a repeat figure champion) would never pose like Lisa in this picture, I see more boob then muscle!
  • She’s a beautiful woman from the start yes. But after that I can only speak for myself and…well…I like long hair and like big (not to big) boobs. And I think a lot of people agree with me.  (male)
  • Quit advertising your boob job and lets focus on the bodyrock aspect. Thanks
  • Nice Tits! (male)
  • no negativity intended, but i got involved on your website for the quality of your workout content and your cute and REAL personality and body, someone i could respect and relate to. the fake hair and boobs seem so unnecessary lisa, you were so amazing the way you were! i’ll have a hard time checking your website every day now. what a bummer
  • I am sorry the only reason I saw this image is because of how inspiring her workouts are and how awesome they make me feel and I am always on the pages for workouts. Nothing about her boob job is going to change that. If you don’t like it then go some where else. You are just hateful. She is awesome regardless for what she is doing for so many people!
  • No one said she isn’t fit or to be admired for that and what she has acheived, or that she hasn’t helped anyone. People are just disappointed over the tone of the photos being posted recently. Fair enough it’s her body, it’s her call in terms of the breast implants. But she is putting herself out there as a fitness role model to the public, and a lot people are losing respect for her because of the way she is chosing to portray herself now. It’s her choice, but of course there is going to be some backlash over photos like this, and she should expect to lose a lot of fans for it. I’m also not impressed by the comments of “spaniel ears” to describe smaller breasted women. That is not inspirational and it’s not an admirable attitude. It’s plain vanity and not something that should be looked up to. She needs to focus more on health and fitness. That’s what she is suppose to be promoting isn’t it? Rather than getting down on her hands and knees with her boobs bursting from her bra. What exercise is this suppose to represent? Looks more like doggy-style than a real exercise. If I wanted to be inspired to have sex, I’d watch some porn
  •  It’s not about hate. It’s about feeling let down.

 

  • So basically, i have to work out like an animal to be slim and fit, get my breasts done because by the time i drop down to a size nothing, i wont have breasts anymore, and get hair extensions to feel feminine when my testosterone levels are so high i want to throw a chair at everyone!?? LMFAO, as long as her advice works, whats the matter with her looking like silicone Barbie?!

    Good post.  Zuzana did have certain charm about her, but let’s not forget she continued doing porn for quite some time even after starting bodyrock.  The real shame is the thousands who have never put two and two together and realized that Freddie was and is nothing but a porn director/producer.  I watched a video where Z said that Freddie encouraged her to leave the business.  No he didn’t.  Her porn videos were shot identical to her workout videos.  Hmm….wonder who the cameraman was on those pornos?  And now he buys some fake boobs for an anorexic looking girl, starts “dating” her and puts in her in the same position (no pun intended) he put Zuzana.  I am consistently amazed at the amount of women supporters this idiot (Freddie) has.  Within a year, he will brainwash some naive new girl with promises of fortune and fame and state that he and the current girl have “grown apart.”  Women supporters will cry and encourage the devastated Freddie to keep bodyrock alive.  Wake up ladies!  Lastly, the amount of women saying they want to look like this new host is troubling as she does not represent health in body or mind.  As a personal trainer, I have found several very good youtube channels I can direct my “consult only” clients to knowing full well the information will be truthful, the workouts safe and productive, and the image one of health.  To those people, I say thank you.

    Thank you for visiting and sharing your comments.  I would greatly appreciate if you had time to post some of the good youtube channels you do like.  It’s always nice to be aware of good examples.

    thanks again – meghan

    I missed that comment – that stinks! When she first started on BR the one thing I did really appreciate was that she seemed to have nice breasts for her size (I have zero) – sooooo! But LM going from very real to everything fake is just too much for this woman. Agree – some of the photos I last saw when I wrote this – the lighting makes her look. . . how do I say. . . sweaty and vampy. Cheap. Raunchy. That became an issue for me. The new look just completed the direction. Very gimmicky – nothing substantial. I am not going back… I am not going back…. I am not going back to see this mess!!! Your description is so sad – unpleasant.

     Looking around your site here, I see you have already discovered that Zuzana has a new youtube workout channel.  She’s as beautiful as ever but looks much healthier now IMO.  I’ve only watched two of her new workouts and I like the direction she is taking her workouts.  However, I do see she is having some problems properly sequencing/arranging her exercise choices.  I also am a huge Rachel Cosgrove fan.  She has a new program called Sleek/Strong at http://www.youtube.com/user/LivestrongWoman.  This program gets you properly warmed up, stretched out, and the nervous system turned on before she runs you through a tough circuit style resistance training session.  She then finishes up with a short HIIT workout.  She has full demonstration videos of all her exercise choices with progressions included.  The program is gym based and geared more towards beginners but she seems to progress her clients quickly.  I also like Marianne at myohmytv.com.  She has a forum, beginners corner, tutorial videos, and a variety of mostly at home routines that use weights, kettlebells, body weight only exercises, etc.  She uses lots of complexes, knows how to sequence properly, and has workouts for beginners to advanced that will kick anyone’s ass.  She really represents what strength/health/beauty are IMO and authored a great article on Orthorexia and Extreme Leanness which you can find on her site.  Check em out and let me know what YOU honestly think of them. Take care.

    Wow Taylor THANK YOU for coming back and sharing these fitness interests.  I’m a bit out of sorts crazy busy at the moment but I promise to check them out and get back to you.  Something to look forward to!!! 

    I sincerely appreciate you coming back and taking the time to post these resources.  I need to dedicate some focused attention to strength!!!!  Thanks for the reminder!

     Lisa-Marie might have the best body I have ever seen. Muscle but very slim. Perfect. Ever woman should aspire to look like her.

    Zuzana did an interview where she explained how she met Freddie. She was being flown to some island in Spain or somewhere for an amateur shoot (where paid models pose and amateur cameraman pay for the opportunity to work with the models). Freddie was one of the cameramen. He may have “rescued” her from her current porn employers, but only by poaching her himself.  

  • http://www.petrockstudios.com/ meghan

    Thanks for visiting my blog and filling me in on some details.  I could never quite piece it together.  I was on Zuzana’s new youtube channel ZuzkaLight yesterday and there were several comments regarding how much more natural and relaxed she appears since “escaping” Freddie’s “rescue”.  Other comments expressed the witnessing of Freddie’s toxicity and his penchant for the extremely lean. . . again noting how Z is looking much healthier sans Bodyrock.  Mr. F. Poacher must be an extremely charming dirtball in person.

    Awesome Taylor – thank you for these links. Immediately liked them both. Funny thing though the youtube link took me to a horribly terrible video at first – but once I found sleek/strong – perfect! Really nice demonstrations. Thank you again for sharing these great resources!

  • Taylor

     Glad you liked them.  Rachel and her husband Alwyn are well known in the strength and conditioning field.  They both have written books that are generally well respected although I have not read them so I can’t personally vouch for them.  Alwyn has beaten stage 4 cancer twice and has been left with a body ravaged by the treatments.  His view on life and training has greatly changed.  He openly talks about how hard it is to have gone from being a world class martial artist to a man who had to vomit after going up a flight of stairs. Due to his limited energy resources he found he needed to be extremely efficient with his training. His article on the Hierarchy of Fat Loss (google it) is one of the best ever written (IMO) on how to make the best use of our time when approaching fat loss.  I think you would like his philosophy.  Anyway, you have an interesting site here- looking forward to reading more about Primal/Paleo diets.  Take care.

    I HATE the new bodyrock. Yet there I am, still with it on my facebook feed. I think I go back just to check it out so that I can have something to hate. I never comment on it there, I couldn’t deal with the lashback (being called a ‘jealous hater’ and hearing ‘haters gonna hate’). These people cannot define why I hate (sometimes I just do, I think it has more to do with having some common sense), but it is definitely not because of jealousy. I am 36 yrs old, 5’1″, 105 lbs and have a 4 pack (and little, well-proportioned breasts). Good enough! I work hard for it, but I also LOVE to eat.

    Lisa is promoting a lifestyle with an extreme approach to dieting.  ‘Everything in moderation’ is a practical approach to living. When I go on vacation I like to live it up: try all the local ethnic food, and drink their wine and beer. Life is too short to limit your experiences because you want to be fat free. I am not walking into a restaurant and requesting 1000 changes to their menu to accomodate a bizarre diet. I do my research before I go and order the healthier options on the menu. Sometimes I even say “f* it” and just get what my mouth wants. Then I go back to cooking and eating healthy, natural, real food at home. Falling off the proverbial wagon twice a month is not going to kill you.

    There is a train wreck quality about the new bodyrock that keeps one going back.  I’ve been BR-free for several weeks now!  Whew!

    “eating healthy, natural, real food at home” – - – is the best diet I know!

  • Aotayza

    Im totally agree, I can’t see the channel anymore first at all the website is very confusing … It has too much host, and the workout are bored, otherwise LM made the exercise too fast…and forgot the appropriate position in many occasions .
    When I hear she will make a boob job I thought WTF Freddie is trying to transform her in Zuz?.she always try to loos sexy and no natural at all.it’s really her decision but she is too skinny for that size it look like a porn …
    Before they didnt use so much equipment, but now it’s very complicate,
    I found very Disgusting that Sean post videos from brtv at zuzka page, that’s so low
    It’s really sad, oh by the way no fitness model look like her ;(

  • http://www.petrockstudios.com/ meghan

    Thanks for the comments Aotayza – - – I also noticed that LM does not appear to be naturally comfortable in the role of sexy — which I think is another reason why the whole thing feels rather uncomfortable to witness. I imagine Freddie must be quite the charmer – extremely gifted in the art of influence and persuasion.

    I liked LM – she is skinny, she had very nice boobs and she was full of energy. Her transrofmation to a doll is not what I want to see in a woman – fake boobs, lips, hair. Although Zuzana also has many corrections – her cheeks are different from her adult pics, also she had wrinkles around the mouth which don’t exist now. So both had corrections but somehow Zuzana has charisma and people like her. There are many women, fit, natural and way better trainers than Zuzana and Lisa. My favorite are Bulgarian and Russian ladies – Rumi and Tati, because they give very detailed explanation of proper form and don’t make you rush through exercises.

    Since I train with them I get results and a real workout, not go go push push for 12 minutes.

    Keisi – I LOVE this post — thank you kindly for sharing these other inspiring women trainers – I look forward to checking them out!
