Bye bye BodyRock

18 Apr 2012 by Radioactive Runner, 7 Comments »

So, how many of you watched The Biggest Loser last night?  My oh my, talk about drama. It’s so unfortunate that two of the contestants quit because they didn’t agree with the producers bringing back former contestants for the next challenge.  In one way, I understand why they were upset because if I thought I was part of the final five and then someone told me different, I’m sure I would be upset as well. On the other hand, I wish they would have used that energy towards focusing on kicking the returning contestants butts in the next challenge. I wonder if they will regret their decision?
Speaking of TBL, let’s talk about Dolvett for a second… he is now selling t-shirts! I wonder if this girl has seen these yet?! I actually really like this one:Before, when I went to the gym on a daily basis that’s what I would tell those who were on my treadmill. Just kidding… Sort of.

Last week, I saw a link on a different blog (can’t remember which one) that Zuzana Light (co-founder of BodyRock.tv) has her own page and is now doing ZWOW workout videos… I have to say, I am SO happy!! I love her energy, positive outlook on life and of course her killer workouts.Pinned Imageclick image for source
I’m curious to know what you all think of the "new" BodyRock.tv?

To be frank, I don’t like it. I was never a hard-core follower but would rather use the site more so for reference and ideas. I found BodyRock.tv a long time ago when they were first starting out and G-Man and I both said, "wow, this is going to be big" and it has indeed turned into a very popular website. All the power to them because it takes a lot of time and work to manage a website like that. With that being said, I’m still not a fan of all the recent changes. First off, I understand that sex sells but some of the photos have gotten to be ridiculous.  If I go to a website to get a workout, I do not need (nor want) to see a close up picture of certain body parts that show way to much detail. Don’t get me wrong, looking at a hot body can be motivating to workout harder but looking at pure booty, crotch and breast shots, is most definitely not and can be offensive.

Secondly, when people put themselves in the public eye one must understand that there is going to be criticism. I don’t feel that blocking and/or deleting comments and people is the right way to handle it.  When there are over 300,000 followers there are bound to be negative comments and people who don’t agree… that is just like anything else in life and what makes the world go round – differences.

I’m not going to say anymore. Some may ask, who am I to judge, right? It’s their site and they can do what they want with it. If that’s the kind of message they want to portray and completely disregard all of Lisa-Marie’s preaching on self-acceptance for so many weeks, then they can and that’s their choice.  Although, it all just seems a little too weird for me and I am choosing to not support it anymore. 

What do YOU think?

    I brought this up on my facebook page one day and was warned NEVER to say this on their site – apparently one lady voiced her opinions on the sex and how she couldn’t watch the vids with her kids in the room and their mass followers FLIPPED OUT!!!

    I think it looks like soft porn and found Zuzanna right after I “unliked” body rock :)

    Hi RAR, I have to agree with everything you said about BodyRock and Zuzana. I was sad and disappointed when Zuzana left the site because I was really, really getting into it (equipment and all) and I had only been BodyRockin’ for 4 months when she left. I came to accept and like Lisa-Marie until she went and got the hair extensions, the giant boobs and lips plus the photos got so overly sexual…I thought she was so cute and perky fun when she was real and not fake. Then they started changing up the hosts and I didn’t really care for that much either. Anyway, it’s cool that I found your blog…I am a runner and a retired NSCA-CPT currently training for my 2nd 1/2 marathon. I now follow ZWOW’s on YouTube and there is a website that has tags of all her workouts: litealloy.com. Hope to see a new blog soon. Oh, and I do love the t-shirt…runners need their treadmills! :)
