Freddy & Zuzana

Hi BodyRockers,

Family meeting time.

Zuzana & I have something that we would like to share with you guys, and just like anytime you come to a friend for a sympathetic ear to tell them something personal, we are both hoping that you will be kind and supportive of us. Over the years we have really opened up our lives to you guys here on the site, and I think it’s because we feel such a close bond with the community here that we feel comfortable enough to confide in you – even if it’s really not easy.

Ok. Where to begin. At the beginning of this year, sometime in early January we came to the mutual realization that our relationship had evolved into something else – something that felt more like a deep friendship. The love was still there, and if anything it was even deeper and more profound, but somehow we had become more like two people who were best friends. Neither of us are sure how or why this happened – it certainly was not something that we planned on or hoped for – but there it is. I think that we both avoided an avalanche of emotional pain by an act of cosmic and emotional mercy that delivered both of our hearts to the same place in our feelings at the same time. We were both obviously disappointed to say the least, and we went through all of all of the typical feelings that people experience. There were tears, long talks, lot’s of hugs and even more tears. It was an extremely trying time for both of us, but we did our very best to keep positive, keep calm, and keep going.

When the emotional dust settled what we found was what we knew was there all along – love, tenderness and an unwavering support and respect for each other.

Neither of us wanted to be with anyone else or be apart or stop living together. As the weeks and months passed and we adjusted to being best friends and we enjoyed our time together even more. As friends we have had some amazing times together filled with all of the laughter, wonder and joy that makes life so wonderful and it feels so right for both of us.

We both realize how lucky we are to still have each other – this transition was by no means without moments of sadness and pain, but we were there for each other because that is what family and friends do for each other – even in the darkest moments when your heart is broken.

Fast forward to now – we felt that it was the right time to tell you guys because Zuzana and I have gotten through it together and for the first time in many years we will be living apart. We have decided that it’s an important step for both of us so that we can learn again how to stand as two complete but separate individuals. I’ve been in Canada now for a week with my family, and since leaving LA, Zuzana and I have been on the phone and on Skype for hours each day :) We miss each other like crazy. The good news is that we still will being coming together as friends and partners here on the site and also visiting each other loads just to hang out and do all the things that best friends do.

So there it is. There is so much love between us and such a strong friendship connection and I hope that you guys can feel it here on the site – it really goes into everything that we do here on the site :)

As we have mentioned in recent posts we are both fully committed to the site and the community here and all of you BodyRockers whom have been so supportive over the years – we hope that you will lend us your love and support as we move into this next phase of our lives together as friends.

We have a lot of amazing things planned for you guys in November, and both Zuzana & I believe that this is only the beginning.

With all of our love,

Freddy & Zuzana

    WOW! Thanks for the honesty and I am so happy for the both of you. I know this was not easy as I have gone through this myself. I’m just so happy that you both were able to make this vast life change without destroying your self. So happy for you both and wishing you both the BEST in the future! ~Sandy~

  • Aram AK

    Well what ever you guys decide on I wish you two the best and I would like to thank you for making my life cheerful with your travel videos :)  

  • Mark Morris

    Guys, I’m so sorry to hear all this.  I’ve been away a while after I got the triathlon bug (thanks to my fellow Bodyrockers I might add) and have been running (barefoot), learning how to swim properly after a lifetime of flailing, doing super-slow workouts and burpees like there’s no tomorrow.  Basically, both of you have had a huge influence on my life this last year or so.  

    So it makes me doubly sad to hear your news.  I’ve been through something similar in the past and while some may be able to make it work, I know that for me and my ex, moving on was the best way forward.  Years later, we have remained friends and we have both married and found real happiness with others.  I think had we forced it, it would have been a disaster and neither of us would have met the people we are now so happy with.

    So if you get back together one day, great.  If this allows you to be friends, to continue your business and to find happiness elsewhere, then that’s great too.  But either way, you will always have my support and, of course, I will always be a Bodyrocker!

    Take care, both of you,

    Mark xx

  • Nosocksinbed

    Wow.  I’ve been away for a while so only just checked on ‘life and Travel’ and read the news…. but I cannot deny that I suspected something was awry when the ad went out for another host….. it seemed …..odd.

    It’s a shock for everyone because we think, and would like to think, that we know you both personally. But we obviously don’t and you MUST have your own lives. You are incredible for sharing so much with us already, and for that, we are the community we are. You two should be proud of what you have created.  

    The community you have built is grieving but it is something we are just going to have to get through. Be patient with us Freddy and Zuzanna, forgive us our disappointment and sadness…..

    So, bodyrockers, lets make these two incredible people SMILE and BODYROCK like never before!!!!!

  • mon

    Thanks for that…my husband of 17 yrs is my best friend,my confidante,the one I run to,the one I can’t live without and thru many ups and down that went on between us I believe we’ve remaned together because friendship and deep love for one another is what kept us seperate from all other couples who seperated.I agree with others being friends is very important in a relationship.I still hope that one day you both realize that you are actually made for each other..in the meantime I wish you both a good voyage…keep discovering…

    Loving your best friend is a good thing. But being IN LOVE with your best friend, well that my friend…is just the greatest feeling of all- Anonymous. 

    I have followed BodyRock.tv for a year now, and I have truly grown to love you both. This does hurt me to know you’ve parted, but I can relate to the feeling you’re going through. Give each other the time and space you need to come in tune with yourselves again, and the love you first felt for each other will find it’s way back. I know you’re both strong, and everything will be okay. I love the BodyRock community, and will continue to follow you. Although I do miss Zuzana being our trainer in the videos :(  Hope you’ll soon come back! ;)

  • MissJLadron

    So sad :’( If u guys feel so much love and the best friend relationship is there then try to grow old together, don’t let go!

  • http://twitter.com/paleolena Yelena Grinberg

    I haven’t been here in forever and today’s Twitter update made me come over and catch up on my favorite fitness couple. This is the first thing I saw and I must say, reading through this post gave me anxiety. I got so nervous scanning every line of this post, because I couldn’t believe what I was reading.

    I think the reason I felt anxiety is because on some level I felt like I was reading about close friends who just announced shocking about their future together. I’ve never even met you and I feel so affected by this. 

    I wish the absolute best for each of you as you embark on your personal journeys. Please know that each of you brings amazing things into our lives and even though I’m not a BodyRocker at home, I’m still a BodyRocker at the gym.

    <3

    I hope that time will show you, that you belong together. ;)

  • Ekvossgue

    I deeply respect the corage they both of you have to find and cherish friendship. It admirable that two beings that have shared everything together as a couple are strong enoght to realize that love unfortunatly has a cycle and that it completes itself and then simply fades, and that you came to a healthy and sane agreement.
    Good luck you both, as individuals, as friends and as business partners.
    That having said…(Ehem!) may I ask Zuzana out? :) much love you two.

  • Alex Gabriel

    It’s unfortunate that this is the way life led you, but that isn’t always a bad thing.  Having been through a very similar experience myself, I can say that it is difficult for both sides of the relationship.  I’m glad you are both in constant communication with each other.

    Really, if people can’t do that after it’s been decided a romantic relationship has come to an end, they shouldn’t have gotten together initially.  Regardless, I hope you’re both doing well, and I am sure that both of you have many friends and supporters willing to assist in any way they can.

  • Liznalx4ever

    Zuzana and Freddy,

    I am very new to your site and videos but have grown to Love what you both did for all and continue doing.  I support you in all your new endeavors. I have been married for six years and will say that I believe in finding your soul mate. It has not been easy but we have worked hard to keep our love strong. If I was not married i would of called it quits but am grateful we displayed patience and understanding but more patience. With that we work hard to have true love together. Only time will tell what will happens but I have found so much entertainment and inspiration in both of you. I hope much success in both your lives and love because at the end of the day all that matters is that your happy in what you do.
    You are both beautiful inside and out!

    While i was recovering from surgery I ran into your you tube videos and must of spent one whole day watching your work out and travel videos. Thanks for sharing yourselfs with the world!

    Much Love,

    What a great story! I love you guys and hope that you will stay together and someday get married.

  • Czerskii

    Oh my word….it’s suppose to be that way.  As a marriage partner,  you will experience ups and downs and have to work on the downs, when you are not feeling like it.  That’s what a marriage is, a commitment, a covenant.  It is hard.  I appreciate you actually sharing something so sensitive to your heart.  You are married to each other…..don’t let go of that.  I cannot imagine being with anyone else either….I have been married for 8 years now…but sometimes it just seems impossible.  One day at a time, and asking God for His help…we will succeed.  Don’t let your marriage partner go, don’t let your wife go, dont let your husband go.  Hang tight, carry on-TOGETHER!…God bless you.

    All the best you two! I haven’t been posting, but popping in here now and then (my injuries have not been healing properly and I have not been able to work out). I am saddened to see this, as you two seem to have a really cool chemistry; the laughter, the silliness, the cool conversations and this business that you have built together. 
    I wish you both the best and hope that perhaps, down the road, you will wind up finding what you’re missing, either in each other, or maybe someone new. Maybe you were the people you needed to be with at the time because of the people you were. You’ve seen a lot of the world and no doubt grown as individuals more than many people would in a lifetime… so maybe this is where you are supposed to be now. 

    Best of luck and I hope that you remain close. Be true to yourselves. 
    Take care of you!Sue :) xox

  • Alana Pacey

    It’s 3am here in the UK and I’ve been lying in bed thinking about you guys for the past hour or so (I also have bad jet lag after getting back from LA on Sat). 

    All in all only you two will ever really know why you made the decision to move on from your marriage but I’d like to suggest that you both read the book ‘The Five Love Languages’ by Gary Chapman.  It really helped me to strengthen my marriage when I began to feel like me and my husband had become more like friends than lovers.  Maybe it can help you (either with each other or with future partners).  It’s not too long and you can download it on your Kindle.  I found it straight forward, enlightening and practical.

    Whatever the future holds for you both long-term, I hope that it brings you lots of joy.

    It would be great to see more from you both on the nutrition and other aspects of the site but it would be a shame if we didn’t see any more of Zuzana showing us the workouts.  I understand the need to change things but perhaps we could put a call out for other Bodyrock.tv camera men/women to enable Zuzi to remain a key role both in front of and behind the scenes?

    i dont know how long you have been bodyrocking, but many of us have been here so long that we feel as though freddy and zuzana are actually part of our families.  If a rly close aunt and uncle suddenly break up, how do you feel? You cant just not care, you love them both to much.  they have made the choice to make bodyrock on an extremely personal level, and share even extremely personal aspects of their lives in the past.  of course people are going to ask personal questions- thats how well we feel we are to them

    Im so impress how everyone has a relative with cancer.Of course I knew of cancer before, but never notice how much people is affected by it…and it doesnt matter much how healthy choices you take. Or maybe is that even the healthy choices are already contaminated…theres not a clean choice anyways…water, food, air, mind everything kinda polluted….but we tried the best like you said. Choices like following this site…and me too, girl…meeting myself again with excersise, and caring.  My dad died this month on my birthday, i choice to think that wasnt a coincidence…and i do really birth for second time after his death.

  • lolly

    Marriage is hard work – just like exercise and nutrition.  But it is also not selfish.  Maybe you both need to look deeper and be less self centered and more “communtiy ” centered.  marriage is imrtant and worth working hard at – You do nto “feel”  love for exercsie all the time – but you do it because it is right.  Sorry , I liked you more because you were married.  I have been married for 16 years – we have to work at the spark and the passion – not give up on it- be just as creative int he marriage as you are in cooking and filming.
    best of luck- maybe you can still work it out,

  • Lila Alejandra ♥

    I´m in shock, sad, suprised and worried. Sad because of Z and F spliting up :( :( I just couldn´t belive it. Worried about what´s going to happen to the site. Are we still going to have our workouts? I can´t imagine the workouts hosted by somebody else. It is some what like the secuences of a movie, when they hire the same actor to shoot all three o four secunces and suddenly they replace the star actor with somebody else, it´s just not the same :( Zuzanita if you happen to make your own site, I will definitely follow you. I just can´t imagine my workouts with out you. And well I´m suprised because I never read some followers and fans fighting about their opinions regarding the divorce, the site and the new host. I still wish this site to be a place of support where we can all exprese ourselves with respect. People just have different ways of thinking, lets respect that as long as they are not offensive.

     Does Zuzanita have an e-mail  or facebook where I can write to her? It seems and feels like Zuzanita is not going to read us from this site any more and she is not going to be able to reply to our posts. You have my best wishes and support Zuzanita, I know what a divorce feels like. I´ve been through one.

     Best luck to you too Freddy.

    Much love to you both, all the way from Mexico!

  • Ali

    I was wondering why Zuzana keep the video swithing hands ….now i know. I wont lie to you, i feel sorry to hear that guys, because you really seem a very nice couple, married one…and it was very inspirational for everyone else, right? But i want you to know that everything is going to be ok and  I wish you the best to both of you, in your mutual business and in your individual journey.

    I was kinda disappeared because in two month my dad pass from healthy (or at least normal behavior) to death….he has cancer, an agressive one…that didnt was detected. I were in hospital with him and obviusly i could excersise much even so i went very thin like him… he was wonderfull person, who taught me so many things, once was to keep going and im coming again, with a better strenght that comes from within, from the inside.  Thats what the  painfull and change moments makes us see and notice how powerfull and great can out bodyes and minds be.  Ironically i make burpees for  erin,  while my dad was struggling with something as similar….so when i do a burpee i think everyone that eneergie can go too…cause we never know who can be help of it… well

    Just to tell you that, throught this change in your life, discover the new you, that was there even before but that you could see it. Love to both of you, and to the caring community,

    Ali, Alina

    Best of luck. You guys are both great. Keep up the good work.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/FitMindy?feature=mhum Mindy McT

    I would say that you guys reached a point in your marriage where everything is perfect. Why be married to anyone other than your best friend? Friendship yields happiness and being married creates the desire to compromise and make things work. Dont give up. Being best friend is a prestigious thing and it should be celebrated.

  • Anonymous

    wow I am sorry but she didn’t attack anyone she just stated her opinion. We all have that right. If you don’t like it don’t read it. She is just posting her concerns of Zuzana being pushed from the site. She has that right.

    Being
    in love is a good thing, but it is not the best thing. There are many things
    below it, but there are also things above it. You cannot make it the basis of a
    whole life. It is a noble feeling, but it is still a feeling. Now no feeling
    can be relied on to last in its full intensity, or even to last at all.
    Knowledge can last, principles can last, habits can last; but feelings come and
    go. And in fact, whatever people say, the state called “being in love” usually
    does not last. If the old fairy-tale ending “They lived happily ever after” is
    taken to mean “They felt for the next fifty years exactly as they felt the day
    before they were married,” then it says what probably never was nor ever could
    be true, and would be highly undesirable if it were. Who could bear to live in
    that excitement for even five years? What would become of your work, your
    appetite, your sleep, your friendships?

    But,
    of course, ceasing to be “in love” need not mean ceasing to love. Love in this
    second sense– love as distinct from “being in love”– is not merely a feeling.
    It is a deep unity, maintained by the will and deliberately strengthened by
    habit; reinforced by the grace which both ask, and receive, from God. They can
    have this love for each other even at those moments when they do not like each
    other. They can retain this love even when each would easily, if they allowed
    themselves, be “in love” with someone else.

    “Being in love” first moved them to
    promise fidelity: this quieter love enables them to keep the promise.
 It is on
    this love that the engine of marriage is run: being in love was the explosion
    that started it.

    Thanks guys for opening up to all of us here. Although this is sad to hear, this is your decision and i wish both of you lots of strength getting through this. Although it may not be clear right now, but I am sure everything happens for a reason; you both are amazing human beings and good things happen to good people!!! Lots of love to you both!!

    I would really love to see Zuzana in the workout videos still. I started following this sight because she is how would like to be. I would also like to see Freddy do some workouts as well lol. I hope that Zuzana doesn’t stop being our leader any time soon… I am kinda scared to see someone else do the vids. (No offense to your new girl.) I just never thought of Zuz as a host, more that she is the sight. I am afraid to see all of her pics and vids replaced. I love you both and wish you the best.

    Thought of you, Freddy and Zuzana, when I listened to this today….Zoe Badwi – Freefallin’ (Official Music Video). 

  • ZoeRocker

    I think we are having trouble accepting this news in part because, Zuzka IS bodyrock!! It seems weird to have someone else hosting it. It’slike continuing a TV show but hiring a “new girl” to play the main character. When you grow to love or feel empathy towards someone whether in your favourite prime-time drama series or like wehave with Z, it is difficult to look at the “new girl” with the same adoration. Zuz has inspired us with her charm, encouragement, and inspiration (not to mention her seriously killer bod!!!). I’m sure Jess will be great, but she is not Zuzana. We just have to look at this in a positive light. Think about it. Zuzka has put 3.5 years into making these videos. This is a job that runs long hours for her (and Freddy!) I think anybody might get tired of their job too after that long and want to try something new. I can understand her wanting to step into a different role on the site. We will miss her, but she is not going anywhere! We can still see her beautiful face during her coffee talks and recipe posts. We love this site becuse of the two genuine and real people behind it. We must support their decisions. They have brought us all this far in our journey. We must trust that what they have in store for the future is only going to continue to change our lives for the better. Life will always have its hurdles. It is up to us to jump over them and see what is on the other side. 
    That said… in the words of Bodyrocker Carol yesterday, I hope Freddy and Zuzka are each other’s vegetable also:) After all, mac and cheese is so limited. The possibilities with veggies are endless!!

  • Mystrina

    I’m writing to tell you how sorry you guys have choosen this path for your lives to be separate, if you truly are best friends you will find a way,…..we love you both and want you both to be happy. As one of your older wiser bodyrocker, I will keep my opinions to myself.  I just had these types of conversations with some friends people do change and sometimes we can always be with the ones we love the most cause they are just not there for us. Zuzana you are the face of Bodyrock.tv don’t give that up without a fight or pass it off lightly we know you both have worked very hard to build this community into what it has become, take care of yourselves you will survive,

    Zuzzana & Freddy – I’ll pass on something that one of the trainers at my gym had in a recent post – “Putting yourself first is the least selfish thing you can do!”  When you have take care of your self emotionally, mentally and physical you can then help others. So, please take care of yourselves and the best will work out for you, whatever it is and we, the Bodyrockers will take all you have taught us and take care of ourselves and then help others!!  We love you guys!!

    I really had to let this sink in for 2 days now before I could make a comment because I was little heartbroken at first. I have only been BodyRocking for 7 weeks now but you two have made an amazing impact on my views about fitness. I used to be a fitness professional and followed the strict and boring rules of cardio and strength training in the gym.
    I am 42 and have been with my husband for almost 10 years now (plus, we were friends 1 year before we started dating) and I love him very, very much. Sometimes we are together in the mornings then from the time he gets off from work to bedtime and all through the weekend constantly doing everything together. But sometimes he has to go out of town for work and that gives us some “breather time” to focus on some individual things. Anyway, I understand this is part of being your own self so that you can be better together. So however it works out, I look forward to seeing how ya’ll will keep it together on the website. I have faith that you will continue to do great things. :)

  • Christeec

    Hey, whatever works! Sometimes life gets weird. It’s really wonderful that you turned this into something positive, though. I’m behind you both. Sometimes married couples don’t even get to have the relationship that you have, and they turn it into something bitter and miserable. I actually think you guys are even more inspiring now…and I didn’t even think that was possible! 

    I wish you much love and happiness!

    Always your Bodyrocker…Christee

  • Sarah

    My husband is my best friend.  Our friendship is one of the basis’ of our marriage.  While I am glad you can still be friends my hope is that you could stay together too.  If its the spark that has faded, that happens but you can get it back.  It happens in every relationship.  I will be praying for you guys. 

    On another note: I am excited for the changes coming to the website, at first it was a little shocking but  then I realized everything you guys have done so far is just better and better.  Thank you so much for enriching the lives of us bodyrockers.  

    I would not be where I am physically unless I had Bodyrock.tv

  • Amanda

    This breaks my heart… Zuzana and Freddy, you guys have been my idols since I first started bodyrocking 8 months ago. Your life and your relationship was something I aspired to have when I’m older.  I don’t really understand, because I always thought friendship was supposed to be the basis of a marriage, and I always thought that’s why you two had such a strong relationship. I’m heartbroken for you both :(  

  • Lily

    I think that it now makes sence why you were looking for someone to do the workouts for you in Canada… because I was confused as I knew you were living in L.A. I am really sad for you and your change I know I went through some very sad stuff with my hubby. But in the end we are still together. I honestly wish the best for you both and if you know that you can’t be together then this would be the time to separate considering you have less to worry about in a break up. Where as couples like mine we have kids to worry about! I wish you both the best, but I would be more delighted than anything to have my best friend as my spouse than someone I feel like I barely know!

    sucks for everyone, sorry to hear.

    I normally don’t post here very often, although i have been following the site for some time now. 

    I feel compelled just to mention one thing.

    Zuzka and Freddie have asked for our support repeatedly regarding all the recent events on the site..
    Support means acceptance to me, and that is what they both have asked for, not opinions,, not unsolicited advice. I have a lot of respect for you both and I respect any decision you make in your life and the site. To me that means accepting and supporting your personal decisions, not questioning and discussing them like I have a say in them… It is crazy how much negativity and speculation and fear have cropped up on the site recently..Come on people. What about unwavering support and acceptance? That is the most LOVING thing we can do. Let’s be a positive uplifting influence, not a negative one that tears down the decisions of others regarding their own lives-that only they get it sit in and know what is true in their hearts….

I wish you all the best ever possible in the future, which hopefully is filled with lots of love, adventures, friendship and laughter. We are so lucky you will continue your priceless partnership and inspire us all every single day. Thank you!!!!

    We understand, and it’s up to you guys. But keep in mind, that after the lust settles and the years pass, it’s a friendship like you two have now that is the glue to a great marriage.

  • Katie

    I didn’t judge them, I just voiced concern for the future of the site.  I don’t see them as my friends or anything other than a business.  This is a business and although the videos are free, they make money on ads, and ads want to advertise on sites with a lot of content.  Just typing these words adds more content, there fore we are the product and we are making Z and F money.  So I can say what I like about the business side of this. Would you be happier if I just said, oh F and Z I’m so sad for you.  Cause I won’t.  I don’t care, I only care that the workout videos continue, and the ones with Zuzana will now be few and far between.  I don’t know if I will like Jess’s vids yet or not, but I am not obligated to enjoy them just because Freddy produced them.  I am not obligated to these people. Anymore than I am obligated to Youtube for sharing free content. 

    • Mmghia

      Katie, Although I may not agree with everything you said I appreciate what your saying.  It’s hard for people to seperate the business and personal side of this site mostly due to it’s very personal nature but we all come here for what we want; you and I (and I’m sure others) come for the workouts with Z.  But there are still others that come to share in the lives of F and Z and if that is what they want so be it.  I like you am concerned over the future of this site and the loss of Z, they do have the best of intentions to continue working together  but I agree that things do not always go as planned-divorce is an ugly business!  But I still hope for the best, that they will rise above and be able to continue to produce and excellent product or that, better yet, they reconsile and we can all breath a sigh of relief!  

  • Katie

    Thank you for repeating what Freddy and Zuzana have said.  I am glad you have such unwavering trust in two people you don’t know.  Do you believe everything on television too, or just the internet?

  • Katie

    I’m not living their life and I rarely watch the extraneous vids of them doing fashion hauls, going on vacation or whatever, but I simply offered this video as an explanation as to why other people, many many other people, have an opinion on their personal life.  Other people are far more concerned with this on a personal level than myself.  I really only care about the workouts. However, I became sick of people saying  no one had a right to comment on their personal life when 1. they have vids on their website of extremely personal moments, and 2. they invited this discussion by posting their separation news. So chill out, and stop telling people not to comment, WTH?  This is a discussion board!?!?!  Did you really come on here to tell people they don’t have the right to discuss??  What are you 12?

    IM NOT GOING TO LIE THIS MADE ME SAD. ZUZANA YOUR THE ONLY PERSON THAT MADE ME PUSH So HARD WHEN NOBODY ELSE COULD. I CONGRATULATE THE NEW HOST BUT I DON’T FEEL YOUR ENERGY THERE ITS SO HARD TO EXPLAIN BUT I HOPE EVERY THING GETS BETTER :(

    I have never seen such a graceful, practial and honest transition explained and obviously lived by two people.  Many of us go through this but let hurt, confusion and anger take over and almost destroy all the good that was there between each other in the begining.  You both are amazing, you offer not just an example for fitness but how to handle emotional challenges as well.  What a gift to be able to accept the path we are on and realize that resisting it will avoid some hurt but in the end will lead to stagnation and usually more pain.  I am so thankful for all that you both have done and will continue to do both as a team and independantly. Best wishes. You are both on your way to being stronger and more fulfilled.

  • Michelledavegan

    This is the  pattern that my (now) husband and I went through. We worked together for 10 years, played in a band together, and started 2 clothing companies as parters. We were together as a couple at first, then over time dated others, and in the end we figured out that marrying each other was the best decision we ever made. Be patient – there is no perfect relationship. Most married people see each other for a couple hours each day, and never  really have to get to know each other! A relationship like yours is so special; its been forged through years of hard work, love and patience. Its going to be really hard for anyone else to carve a space in your hearts, let alone understand how close you are to each other. I hope the best for both of you, no matter what you decide, I just don’t want you to regret trading your best friend for someone else!

  • cs2010

    My heart breaks for you guys, but I know how you feel and I’ve been there myself.  Obviously, the Bodyrock community is here to support whatever decisions you make, and we’re willing to help in any way we can.  Lots of love.

    I am of course sad for you two, but you have to do what make´s you happy, be selfish and take time to your self..I think that the whole community is taken so much time and effort that you don´t have time for you anymore and time for your relationship. If I am looking back example the time when you were living in malta, you post only 3 workouts per week,so you did have more time for your self and we were so happy to even hear from you 3 times,I just try to say that you also need free days like normal people do have when they are working in regular jobs. 
    I think that you and freddy are such a amazing couple together and I wish all the best for you both. 

  • Zouzou_polpapitchou

    Hi guys, Thank you SO much for your amazing honesty. You did not have to, but you shared with the whole BR community a very personal decision. We should say thank you so much. I think nobody should ever advice a couple though – even their closest friends, because the intrinsic mechanisms of a couple are always unknown to the outside world. I also believe you are mature people, thought about this a lot, and took a very profound decision after talking about it for days and weeks. So personally I just want to thank you for your honesty and wish you guys the very best, you both are great, unique, talented people.

    Like most everyone I am really sad to hear this.  You guys are so cute together.  My hope is that you realize after being apart that you are meant to be with each other.  However, I do also know that this is really a very personal issue and no one except you two should have any say in your marriage.  I hope you come to realize that after the initial period of a marriage the most important part is the friendship.  If you do end up permanently separating I hope you always stay friends.  I hope the best for you two.  Thank you for all that you have done to help me in my journey.  I hope I can one day return the favor.

    Thank you for your honesty, I knew something was up when there were no new daily workouts.  It will work itself out however and in the end for the best.  Hang in there, the hardest transition is learning to be by yourself again, but there is a rainbow at the end–believe me.  Good luck and thanks for sharing.

    I wish you both the best of luck.  I applaud you for handling this with such grace and maturity. 

    I just wish some of the people on here weren’t so judgmental. It’s appalling.  You guys have given us so much… for free no less!  And people think they have a right to form their own conclusions.  The bottom line is that you guys know what’s best for you.  Period.  I’m sticking with the site no matter what and I appreciate everything you’ve done and everything I know you will continue to do. 

    I’m sure this has been a really tough time for you.  But hang in there.  As a person who’s been through it, I can tell you that it gets easier.

    When I first read you post, I felt really sad and I am still a bit shocked by the news. But I realize that it is selfish because what matters the most is that you are happy guys. I just felt sad because we all feel like a family now and we don’t want our mom and dad to break up ;)
    I admire your courage. It is really tough to take such a decision and when you have shared so many things together. It is even toughed when you have created something together, your little baby, your little Bodyrock community. A lot of people stay together no matter what, just because they are afraid of being alone. Instead you are facing the truth and being proactive, and you have all my admiration.
    We trust you and we know the better is yet to come and we trust that you will keep this community as strong as it is now – and that will show how powerful your relationship is.

    We love you guys and will support you no matter what. Keep (body)rocking!

  • Larism Mrgc

    tearing right now. I mean being best friends is the most important part! I think if you two still want to work out you can. I dont want to sound like Im getting involved into something I shouldnt but zuzana really seems sadder in her past videos. I think to live apart should be good for a while fi you need time to think but you both can certainly figure things out together and I think being best friends was the essencial. Doesnt make sense to split up if you both dont want to be with anyone else. Try to do different things together and see how it works. dont give up on something so great that you both have. =] hope that helps

    And why do you think you’re so superior when your tone is so childish?
    Nobody is asking them to give any more details, so maybe you should get your facts straight before you say something, well, idiotic.
    We are minding our own business. Just because we’re talking about the situation doesn’t mean we’re fussing or trying to get anything out of them. It’s not illegal to talk.

  • Anonymous

    They posted it in public, so people will discuss. Comment section = discussion. No one is telling Zuzana and Freddy to do anything. But a comment section implies that people can speak their minds, which is what we’re doing. If you don’t like it, then it’s nothing of my concern. It’s obviously their decision and their lives, but since we can, we’re giving input. Whether they want to or not is up to them.
    Oh and what the hell is wrong with you? You’re the one making presumptions and communicating with the tone of a 10-year-old.

  • Marie-El Domingue

    The way you describe your relationship, to me, is what real love is :) But the most important thing is that both of you are honest with yourselves :)

    We’ll still following you here (My best friend and I). Hope that you will keep capture your WO for us Zuzka! Because, I think that hosts are an interesting thing… but we are attached to you as our trainer and motivater, yes, but also as a friend you know? :)

    We love you Xx

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1r4eH2BfoSw&feature=relmfu    This is why people feel that they can voice their opinions. You shouldn’t be shocked that people are voicing their opinion, when Freddy and Zuzana have used their personal lives as content for their website. Is it ok for them to use this content to generate income, but not acceptable for us to discuss the repercussions? 

  • http://www.fridamexicanvogue.com Alex Anderson

    Zuzzana and Freddy, I do hope you guys get together again as a loving couple. If you ask any long term relationship, / marriage. they will tell you they went through the same feeling of becoming best friends, that is the best part of being in a relationship.  In the end all the high of being in love will always fizz out, but the friendship is what keeps it together.  Please don’t give up on your relationship, you guys have something special going on that not many people have.  I wish you all the best and will say a prayer for you two.

    I saw this quote on Pinterest and fell in love with it:

    OH wow. It’s amazing to read this here and now, because my husband and I are discovering the same thing. The hardest part is that I’m making the discovery more quickly and easily than he is and in someways we’re really struggling to communicate. I believe we need some physical distance, but I’m not sure how to bring it up without really hurting him. 
    thanks for your honesty, and as long as Bodyrock.tv doesn’t go anywhere – I’m immensely happy!

    Wow.  Your post made me so sad.  I do want to say that, while not trying to change your decision at all, I’ve been married for 20 years.  We’ve been through times that feel more like friendship and less like a married couple, but we work at it and things change.  All relationships have changes.  I hope you two can stay together in whatever capacity that may be.  But, I think we all support whatever you two feel is best for you.  My prayers go out for you in this time of transition!

  • Amanda

    I’d also like to remind everyone that these two have been doing this for us for free!! Not only free, but they also have involved us so much in the site by posting our pictures and stories. There is nothing out there like this site and they have been more than generous by sharing their workouts and fitness/nutrition knowledge. We have no right to get angry, or give up on these two. Of course everyone is entitled their opinion and even I’m sad that Zuzana wont be doing the workouts anymore but please try to remember what they have done for us and how far we have all come. Keep the site positive by showing your love and support!

    I broke my foot over the summer and havent commented hardly ever since then.  I’ve been slowly starting workouts again, but have been so busy with volleyball that i didn’t have that much time except on weekends.  

    Now, I’m just starting to get ready to bodyrock every day, and this just hit me so hard.  I just expected u guys would be the same forever, that i could come back anytime and still have zuz and freddy here w new workouts and life videos.  I’m just so sad.  I’m afraid for it to change, i don’t want to miss the old bodyrock even if the new one is supposed to be “better”.  

    Im crying and at the same time feel so bad for you both- i rly dont know what i should feel.  All i know is that i loved the time you two shared with all of us–

     ive been bodyrocking since December 2009.  You both changed me.  I learned how strong i rly am.  I never pushed myself like i pushed during bodyrock,and was never as happy as i felt after i completed an especially hard routine.  I owe you two so much that i will never be able to repay.

    Im sorry if this is selfish, because its probably out of my need for security.  Im going to miss zuzana and freddy in malta, exploring calypso’s cave together; im going to miss zuz and freddy spying on george clooney’s yacht from a mountain in capri.  Im especially going to miss zuzana and freddy together.  I pray that everything works out how it is supposed to, and that you both find happiness; whether this ends up being together or apart.  At least i have the memories– I thank God that i was lucky enough to stumble upon bodyrock one day and to have been able to experience these beautiful memories with you both.  

    all my love,
       Beck :)

    Wow, there sure are a lot of judgmental opinionated comments here. I’d just like say thanks for your sharing this deeply personal news and I’m wishing both of you the very best, Freddy and Zuz. Life is short, live yours your own way. Much love and happiness

  • Anonymous

    Well put Carol, I would rather that both Zuzana and Freddy take a break (as long as needed) to heal rather than bring in a new host. Sorry, the more I think about it, this is just how I truly feel. Don’t mean to be unsupportive, I’m sure other bodyrockers would do great as hosts and I’m sure all the new developments and changes will be awesome. But BodyRock without Zuzana as the face, and the voice, and the sweat is just a very, very difficult pill to swallow. But then again, so is this extremely sad news.

  • tee

    there’s obviously more to it than what you are saying.  I read what you wrote, and it is beautifully written, but in it I only see reasons to stay together, deeper love, best friends etc. not reasons to split up. 

     I am always saddened by how easily people give up on marriage (not saying that is what you are doing, I don’t know all your details)  but marriage goes through all sorts of stages.  I’ve been married over 20 years and have gone through all sorts, times like the honeymoon period, periods of sheer lust, periods of absolutely no interest, periods of indifference, periods of excitement, periods of hope, periods of undying love,  periods of wondering what the heck am I doing here!  feelings in marriage can change a lot, sometimes these periods last a short time, a few hours or months, but you work on changing yourself(because you cannot change someone else)on how you may be reacting to something and pretty soon things start looking up again, and if you are lucky you get back into the honeymoon again, but you have to work at it. 

    the one thing that stood out to me in what you wrote freddy was the sentence “as the weeks and months passed and we adjusted to being best friends”  you don’t adjust to being best friends, you work on being more!

    I just want to express myself and I hope you have done everything possible to work everything out and are still hopefuly working on it!  I love you both and I support you both, and I sincerely hope that you are able to keep your relationship good with each other!

    And should you ever decide to shut this site down I would support that decision as well!

    but I will cry and kick and scream and roll around on the floor like a baby having a tantram!  but at least it would have been a workout!

    and, sigh, I would get over it!
    bodyrockers don’t give up!
    but they can move on if they have to!

    PS  the honeymoon period of a relationship can last up to 4 years,then you need to work at it, and at about 7 years, they call it the 7 year itch,  many people break up here, but if you have the fortitiude to work hard on yourself you get through it and then your marriage (or relationship) has a way higher percentage of making it last!  good luck, and I hope you get everything you want and deserve!

    Everytime I come on this website, I get a lump in my throat when I glance over at the sidebar and see this photo of you two… it just makes me so sad!

    Whenever I was asked by people, or at school, about who my role model was… I could never really come up with an answer. I could obviously say my mom, but people were always thinking of a celebrity or someone else in my life. It was until recently that I discovered that I finally found an answer to that question…
    Since October of 2010, Zuzana and Freddy have been my role models. I logged onto bodyrock everyday, looking forward to trying new workouts, recipes, listening to coffee talks and laughing at Freddy’s jokes. Whenever I was lazy or sad, I would always come onto the website and get motivated. You guys have been one of the biggest influences in my life to date. I’ve never looked better, felt better, or even been more optimistic!

    You two are both SO STRONG for staying friends through this… and even stronger for keeping the website running. I just wanted to let you know that you are both beautiful people.

    I don’t know, maybe I sound so silly, getting all sad and teared up about people I haven’t actually met… but you guys have made such an impact on my life that, how could I not?

    Obviously things change, stuff pops up… but life goes on. I wish you both the best in your journeys in life, and hope that you find love again. AND I AM TOTALLY EXCITED ABOUT BODYROCKER JESS AND THE  FUTURE BODYROCKS THAT WILL APPEAR ON THE SITE.

    To finish this babble up, I just wanted to say THANK YOU and show my gratitude for all you two have done, and to the rest of the bodyrockers for being so supportive.

    KEEP BODYROCKIN EVERYONE!!

    It’s strange how you can have such a
    connection with two people without ever having met them. This entire week I had
    been feeling a sense of sadness but I couldn’t quiet pick up on why. I visit BodyRock everyday (morning, at work and in the evening)
    and so needless to say I think there was this unnerving feeling that something so sad was about
    to be revealed.

     

    I am truly
    sorry to hear of this. I have been bodryocking for just about a year now and have
    come to really appreciate the special bond you two have. It was so wonderful
    to see two people come together with a common passion and create something so
    inspirational to so many, all the whole displaying their strong love and
    support for one another. And so naturally this is heartbreaking news. I
    wish nothing but the best for the both of you.

    This is obviously a very difficult time for all, and the start of a new chapter in life can take so many turns. Sometimes, the best medicine is to simply take the time to simply take care of ourselves. As was noted, there are over 600 workouts already posted. That alone is plenty for me to keep revisiting and working out for a very long time. I admire your dedication to this site, but of course you are much more than this site. If you chose to give yourselves time (as much as you needed) and not even post a single new workout in a very, very long time, I would still be checking in everyday and picking one of your older workouts. You could even do what you’ve done this week, just post Zuzana’s “weekly workout schedule” that “we are more than welcome to follow” and that would be more than enough for me. Sometimes in life it’s okay to be “selfish” and concentrate on taking care of ourselves. You two have given so much to everyone else, I hope you will take the time to do the same for yourselves.

      I’ve been kind of sad for a week, too!  It also matches up with certain changes, feelings, and ideas about my future, and I think that’s why this resonated with me so much.  But there was something about it that I think I sensed coming, and dreaded it.  There were so many changes, plus the notice that the new hosts would need ot be in Canada, NOT in LA, but there was no notice of a move, etc.  

      But I’m coming to realize that when we feel sad, it’s often because things are moving in a certain direction, and we just need to make sure we’re on the side of where it’s going and not where it’s been.

    I am also at a loss for words and on the verge of tears.  I feel mad and hope it’s ok to admit that.  I love both Zuzana and Freddy and Bodyrocking has been a part of my life for nearly two years.  I go on the site every day, multiple times a day.   It has changed my life in a very serious and major way.  It feels like a huge source of strength just pulled itself out from under me and told me to sink or swim.  The thing is, there is nothing anyone here can say that you two have not already discussed privately, you know your feelings better than anyone and if you feel like a couple of friends and not husband and wife then that is that.  Obviously it was not a rushed decision.  However, no matter how well you get along and believe in the site, it will not be the same- PERIOD.  Seeing other people do the workouts is not something I am a fan of.  Zuzana is my mentor and idol and I do not feel like following other random people.  I love you both so much and want you to be happy, I just have to be truthful in this moment of my disappointment and fears.  I honestly thought you guys were going to tell us Zuzana was pregnant and that’s why she would not be able to do all the workouts for a while.  sigh….

    I’m so saddened that you two are now parted for over 2 weeks now. :( We’re still here with you guys. That’s something will never change. We are all bodyrockers for life and we all need you both because you two are so humble and amazing couple/friend who helped a lot of people globally. No matter what, are hearts and supports are always with you… Zuz, if you need company I’m just around the area about a mile away from Hollywood… I love you both, please never forget that….  God bless, take care and good luck to both of you. :X

  • Michamom79

    Of course this is absolute madness.. but .. you 2 obviously know your relationship more than we do… although.. we sometimes feel like we know you both so well.. especially since we’ve all been so honest and open with each other.

    It’s a sad thing to separate and it’s even sadder for us who have come to love and respect and understand you two. But the thing that we must remember, not who produces the site, or who is the main person, or who is getting shut out, is that they are making a decision as to what they feel is the healthiest for them and their lives. Which is exactly what they have been guiding us to do for ourselves… Everything happens for a reason, and people come into your life for a reason , a season, or a lifetime.. it may not be all 3, but you have to live, love, and learn from each one.

    They are ending a season, and us, as part of the family that we have created here, are to learn how we can be better in our lives by the people that have been in them.

    I mumble.. which is normal.. but I rock.. therefore I am….  :) Good luck to both of you, to Jess, and we will always be rocking :)

    Hi Zuzana and Freddy, I’m so sad about your seperation. Truely are. But don’t give up, maybe the break will help to connect with your inner self.

    I will miss Zuzana’s workouts because she is Bodyrock.tv. But mostly I care about you two. I hope you find your love for each other back romanticly. A relation ship is very hard and you will have low times, but don’t give up. Don’t go in a divorce yet. The fire has to be fired up again. If not you two are both amazing sweet people and I wish you both the best in life.

    Love you xxx

    Keep rockin.  xoxo

    It’s been a while since I’ve posted here…just want to thank you both for your bravery in putting this personal update on the website.  It just enforces the closeness within this community.  I have seen tons of online fitness communities, but nothing like this one: it’s not just fitness, but friendship, life, travel, and love.  I have never met either of you and even if I had, it wouldn’t seem right to give relationship advice.  You two obviously have looked at this from every possible angle.  I just hope whatever direction life takes you in, that you are each on a path that makes you truly happy.  For all the support and love that you both put into this website and shared with so many people, you both deserve the best out of life!  Many, many thanks for all that you’ve done for me and the countless other bodyrockers out there.

  • Julie008

    I’m sad… And hopeful that this will be the best for both of you… You guys have been such an inspiration, and motivation to live a better life! So… Wish you both lots of good things to come and don’t regret a thing! You were , and still are, amazing human beings …  Big hug!

    Guys listen. I just got done reading some of your comments and I was appalled by a few of them. I wont mention any names but you know who you are and tsk tsk to you. Yes you are all part of this site. Yes, you are all entitled to share your opinions and thoughts. But, the truth to the matter is that, what they are going through is really their own business. If they have tried to make sense of how they are feeling for eachother for some time and have come to the conclusion & realization that they can no longer live as a couple, than that is their business also. Respect that. We as bodyrockers, as advid followers should respect their decision and respect which way they decide they want to run this site. If they arent living together then it makes sense they cant film like they did regularly. So it also makes sense that they will be getting new host closer to their area. They are really nonselfish people who have taken it upon themselves to share their lifes with us. They are only thinking of this community that has grown because of their dedication to make each and of one us a healthy better person. It’s not about who owns what or who is replacing who. It’s about them trying to keep things positive and strong here. They are the ones who went through the aches and pains that a relationship brings.Yes, it makes us sad to know that two people whom we look upto for so long will no longer be joined as a couple. But we should be happy for them, that they are both still united as friends. They are only human and they need their space just as much as anyone. They are both amazing people who as individuals move us and inspire us in ways we thought we could not. So we must all come together as one, as they did for us and support them both their decisions. Why bash and pick sides. Let’s not forget all of the hardwork they both have instilled here. And all of the hardwork they are still preparing. The true bodyrocker always remembers that it is all about keeping strong, not just your body but your mind. It’s about not giving up when things got hard. It’s all about spreading the positive forward motion;-). So be excited and look forward to whats ahead and smile because like they both said, this is only the beginning! <3

  • JuJu

    Wow. Little shocked and surprised. Not gonna even lie :)

    However, I am still a bodyrocker and I support you two! Thank you for starting and opening this community for us.

    Best of luck, love and happiness to your worlds!

  • Graceowens987

    Oy! It’s nobody’s business! We’re not “patrons” of the site. We’ve been blessed to be let into a slice of Freddy and Zuzana’s lives. We’re not paying for a service, rather, we participate in a supportive community. So support, be supported. Bodyrockers aren’t customers, we’re family. And shame on those who are saying friendship should be enough. Strive for passion!

    Sending thoughts to you both. I am so sad to read the news and I hope you guys find what you are looking for.

      Charlie is mine and Cali was Freddy’s before we met. We will be still seeing each other.

  • AlaskaBodyRocker

    I agree with Carol. You should consider hiring someone to film Zuzana so she can remain the face of Bodyrock. Freddy can still do the editing? I’m not going to comment on your personal relationship as there is no way I can truly understand what is going on there as an outsider. But as a huge fan of your site and your workouts, not seeing Zuzana in the workout videos will be taking away a role model all of us hold in high regard and find immense inspiration in. Unless of course it truly is Zuzana’s wish to come out of the limelight a little more (instead of just a logistical issue), then of course we’ll all respect and understand her wish. Best wishes to you both as you sort this through and thanks for the honesty and keeping your fans in the loop.

  • Brenee

    This is my first comment, I’ve been bodyrocking with you guys since last summer.  I have to say ya’ll really changed my life that I would never take granted for!  I’ve watched your old videos of you guys traveling a few years ago, and I really see the love between ya’ll.  I’m very sorry to hear this sad news, and I must say that I was shocked when you guys were separating.  I mean, I had a feeling something was up because Zuzana wanted to learn how to use a tripod, how she needed a break after all these years, and a new host.  Until at the end, there was an iphone video of herself, I was wondering the whole time where Freddy was.  But I thought postively that you wanted to make a quick note while he was running errands or his hands were too full.  I wish you guys the best, and I have heard of your news since last night; I was just speechless.  For the first time, I can’t stop reading everyone’s comment and it brings more tears in my eyes.  We bodyrockers have sooo much support for you guys and do hope at the end is the best decision.  My parents have never been divorced. and I always wondered what keeps a lifetime couple.  I see my parents talking to one another as best friends, it comes to a point that I don’t even understand what they’re talking about.  It shows how much a deep connection they have.  I have so much respect for you guys, and I will never go anywhere because I’m already committed to do your workouts everyday!  Much love, your bodyrocker!! xoxoxoxoxoxo

    You guys did a great job. I think that your energetic union make those videos so damn magnetic as it always have been in all the times. Wish you all the best from Russia. Keep it on neverveless. We need you. Well… do as you think right.

    p.s. Freddy, do not give up!!!!!!!!!! Your union is something!

  • lala

    it makes me as sad as the others and shocked me but … i think i’m going to cry.
    I hope… well it’s none of my business.
    Maybe it speaks to all of us in that way because you were like the perfect couple, and when couples are separating or divorcing it makes us think of our personal lives.

    Really appreciate both of you and may the time you spend separately bring the two of you together in the futur, and maybe that episode is just to show you some things you need, like some time alone, separate, to go back together fresh and new.

  • Katie

    P.S. I think a workout would make everyone feel much better ;)  And, I am sorry for your loss Freddy and Zuzana, I went through a divorce from a man was with for 10 years.  We were married for 3 years, and I feel that if we had to type it down for people we would have said the same thing that was posted here from Freddy and Zuzana.  I know everyone is different and there life is different from mine, but I do know how hard it is.  It is a loss, just like a death, and I wish the best for  you both, although everyone has strong emotions about this now, we all support you and hope that everything turns out ok, whatever happens.

    I feel sorry for you guys, you both were amazing, but the life keep going. The changes is always for better things never for worse. I changed my life i don´t know how  many times, and i tried always to look forward and see the new things coming and taking advantages from everything good.
    I wish you both luck do your best, and be happy!!!!

    this is really well put. i want to stay out of this, because i don’t know what other reasons might be lurking beneath their decision, but what you have said is how i feel from the parts i do know…

  • SaraLovesBodyrock

    Really? Now my heart is broken too! 

  • Katie

    Although you removed my comment that 36 or more people agreed with I wanted a chance to respond to you saying I was rude and divisive. As a patron of your site, the ownership is my business, it is a deciding factor in whether or not I want to continue to use the site. I have promoted your site to many people too by the way.  In addition, I never suggested  you should  ”flame out and hate each other”  but in the real world, getting a divorce means that gradually you will no longer be “friends”, whatever your best intentions may be. I CAN comprehend what those intentions are and have had similar ones myself but alas, things usually don’t turn out the as idealistically as we would imagine when we are carefully rewriting the script.  Also I feel that you Freddy are running the narrative and I wanted to show my support for Zuzana.  Many people agree with me. As for being rude, I am sorry that my opinion offends you, but it is mine to have, and as far as being divisive, a separation by definition is divisive. My opinion is not the divisive action here.  Over time, if given the chance, I will support Zuzana, that isn’t being divisive either, that is just my choice, I know you put a lot of work into the site and I am grateful for it, but Zuzana is the face of the site and many people will feel closer to her because of it.  The fact is that she is being slowly taken away from the site (coffee talks and recipes are fine but not the main attraction) will create sides, whether you like that or not, it is something you should accept.  Sorry to upset you Freddy but it is an upsetting announcement for everyone. I still wish nothing but the best for both of you, and whatever future you each have. Thanks for responding to my post and for allowing everyone to vent their feelings here.

      Here is my original comment should someone want to makes sense of the more recent one. 
      “OK, so, obviously, Freddy owns Bodyrock.tv  ( I already looked it up) and Zuzana has no say in what is happening to the site or her involvement.  If she did I would assume she would continue to be the face of bodyrock and this “she needs a break after 600 vids” is an excuse to shuffle her out of the way.  Freddy is getting some new hosts and a year from now, with all the new people who discover bodyrock, many people won’t even remember or know who Zuzanan was.  This is troubling because I came here originally to see Zuzana and that is what I want.  Clearly she can’t be here if Freddy owns it though, so I just want to say that Zuzuana, if you made your own vids and continue to put them on facebook, I would rather watch that, than a higher quality shot vid of anyone else.  Since there is no competing site to compare it too, most of us will continue to use Bodyrock.tv for our workouts, but I feel that I could care less about Freddy’s video shooting ability and I really don’t like the way he is coming across as replacing Zuzana so easily.  Yes in his well worded explanation he assures everyone they are the best of friends, but let’s face it.  Anyone who has gone through a break up or divorce knows that they won’t remain close, that’s the whole point of a divorce.  This is his business and he is being diplomatic about what he says so he can continue to build this site without Zuzana.  It reminds me of the industry she was in before this and how they treated women, as disposable, bodies to use for profit and get rid of. When they did the sexed up vids here it was acceptable because they were married and I assumed it was a ll in good fun between them, but to see him film someone else in a sexed up manner is gross, and I am uncomfortable with his use of women. So, Zuzuana, I will follow you wherever you go, please start your own site so that your fans can continue to follow you and your workouts, but most of all, your fun personality and down to earth relatibility.

        Thank you for resposting. One thing that I despise is censorship. You’re simply stating an opinion– it may offend Freddy, but you’re not verbally abusing or harassing anybody. Since they decided to post something this personal on their public website, they will have to deal with criticism, otherwise nothing should have been said.
        I respect your matter-of-fact tone, it really sends most of us back to reality because this is not just a personal matter– this is a professional matter. I don’t see anything rude about this– you’re not using profanity or anything.
        People with strong, controversial opinions will always be strongly opposed :)

          Speaking of censorship, I have some evidence to back up my claim that sexualization is historically the way these vids operate, and my concerns over the sexualization of the new host, and “Someone” an administrator of the site, keeps taking off the evidence, I will make sure to find a place online to post it though. It’s one of the reasons this site is so heavily moderated, because the history of sexualization.

        I appreciate your opinion, but can’t we just give them the benefit of the doubt?  This whole change is upsetting and scary for all of us, but ultimately, it’s not my life, it’s not your life, it’s theirs.  For the time being, I’m going to stick with the positive solution that Freddy and Zuzana have presented and trust that everything will work out fine–for them personally and for the site.   It’s not worth creating problems where there may not be any, and where ultimately, it isn’t our business.

      • Lvette #1

        Kate, it looks like you’re rushing to judgement …. your judgement is setting Freddy to be the bad guy. You may need to make Freddy your bad guy to feel better yourself, but try not to justify your thoughts in Zuzana’s name. Respect both of them enough to give them  room to figure out their issues.

        • Anonymous

          She’s stating an opinion. She’s not making anyone a bad guy. It’s a fact: Freddy owns bodyrock. and Katie is simply reacting to the changes that in fact are going to happen.
          If you see Freddy as the bad guy based on her words that’s your problem. But she never said anything about Freddy being the bad guy. I don’t see Freddy as the bad guy after reading her comment.
          Business is is a shady business. Freddy and Zuzana may look all happy and goo, but that’s VERY likely not happening behind closed doors.

      • Jkats

        Kate, I find your comments to be inappropriate and judgemental. Freddy has always seemed to be a good hearted person, I mean he did start a free site to help countless people change for the better so I am not sure why you assume the worst of him. We obviously don’t know all the details and for all we know Zuzana already has something else in the works for herself. she is after all staying in LA, where with her beauty,talent and drive there is bound to be opportunities rolling in for her, so I dont think its fair for you to be saying such accusation with out knowing the whole story or either of them personally.

    • Anonymous

      Freddy is the producer, thus, it’s his choice who he wants the face of bodyrock to be.
      Zuzana, on the other hand, she should A) learn how to use a video camera or B) get a new producer to create her own site and continue business as usual.
      It’s not fair that Freddy spends hours upon hours preparing videos and setting up photos to get such an ungrateful message as yours.
      I agree with some of what you say, but I think your tone is really disrespectful towards Freddy and all the hard work he has put into this site!
      While Zuzana has put lots of work too, she’s not the producer! Without Freddy, this site doesn’t run! As you have seen, it stays idle for days– the only technology Zuzana seems to know how to operate is an iphone and the computer.

      • Katie

        I definitely appreciate Freddy’s work on the site and said so in my post.  However, I don’t feel that there is equal representation here, it just seems as though Freddy is telling the story and I want it to be known that I am not going to go along with it without voicing an opinion.  I am concerned for Zuzana.  I agree that she should learn too work a camera or hire someone to create her own site.  I agree that Freddy’s portion of the work is largely unseen.  I am just saddened that Z was so quickly replaced.  The call for hosts went out and a week later a new host! I think that she has brought a lot of the success to the site by hosting it and I don’t want to see her get the short end of the stick because Freddy is in charge.  I hope everything works out for both of them and for Jess and for everyone here. I would hate to see people leave the site because there is a new host, because everyone’s health, physically and mentally are far more important than who is running the site and who is hosting, but we have all come to know and love Zuzana, and to see her go, filming herself on her iPhone is sad for me. I hope everyone is ok, and if given a choice, I would still follow Zuzana, no matter the quality of her vids, I just think she should know that.

          Very well said.
          I appreciate people like you who aren’t afraid to say what’s troubling them even if it’s risky (since your comment has already been censored).
          I’m here to see Zuzana as well, I don’t want her to be pushed to the sidelines either, only doing recipes and stuff like that. I would rather her have her own site. Jess is super cool and a great pick, but she isn’t Zuzana. It’s not the same without her.

        I believe Zuzka did edit one of their videos back when Freddy was sick.. I think it’s the Sexy Supremacy video, and she did a great job (even though it came in black and white :) ). So that’s one thing to take off of that list. :)
        However, I’m too worried about Zuzka not showing in the videos anymore, and am afraid it will attribute to lessening the interest in this site.. Hope I’m wrong..
         I was coming here for the workout and diet tips, but I also enjoyed watching Zuzka and listening to what she had to say.. I don’t know.. It all makes me very sad.. :(
        Of course, I’ve got nothing against Freddy, I appreciate everything they”ve both done, they both contributed to what this site is now. I just want to see them both in the future, without leaving anyone out.. Nonetheless, wish all the best!

          Yeah I love seeing zuzana, I’m not interested in what other bodyrockers are doing, and I don’t mean that in an offensive way. I don’t come here to see bodyrockers, I come here to see Zuzana, and once she’s gone, there’s no reason for me to come to bodyrock.
          and by gone– i don’t cook, so the coffee talks are going to be the only things left of her.
          Who knows what may come out of it though.

    At the end of the day you two need to do what you feel is best for you and your life. It is amazing to have such a deep freindship with anyone and you two are blessed to have that even if you don’t want it to remain a marriage. And i truly do believe that time apart can save a marriage, it makes you miss all the things you love about a person, not pick on the annoying things that bug you and I hope that at the end of the day you are both happy with where your lives will take you.

    Ok…I keep looking at this picture of you two…and I must say , Zuzana, your whole body posture and facial expression exudes sadness. Freddy, you’re hard to read.

    Zuzana, please, ( and I say this with all due respect to Freddy and his future hosts) either learn how to film yourself or find somebody to film you and process the material. I REALLY  want to keep seeing you in videos and I mean workout videos, not just coffee talks and food recipes. I have a feeling I speak for many bodyrockers when I say this.

  • Tamar

    hearing this really makes me sad but also, i think that it’s an amazing privilege to find someone that means so much to you and that shares such deep connection with you. this is what’s life is about, i think that this is one of the things that  gives people meaning in life (among other things of course).
    watching your videos from ur travels for sure indicates this amazing bond- how you share your laughs together or just seeing how you know each other so well.
    I wish you two the best! and i look forward to keep being a part of this community that’s helped me progress so much. don’t know what i’d do without it ;)

  • Christie

    I’m pretty much at a loss for words. First of all thank you for putting yourselves out there for all of us bodyrockers, I’ve not known what to write since seeing the post last night.  I agree with another comment that said they feel like their parents are splitting up, my jaw dropped and I went straight to my husband and broke the news to him and just sat in stunned silence.  We all here look to you guys for guidance; logging onto this site and depending on it for a safe place to collect yourself and become centered again.  This positive foundation being rocked is a hard pill to swallow, I’m sorry, this must all sound so selfish, Where do you guys go to find yourself again, for guidance? Especially when you do not have each other.  I hope for the best whatever that may be for you two.

  • V.I.G.

    You sharing this news made me think about what steps keeps the passion alive in a lifelong relationship?Passion is very important for most of us, and we really want that in a relationship. My first taught for myself, and what I have seen from you guy’s is  to keep a healthy distance, but it can vary from couple to couple.   But beside that,  what is the concrete steps everybody most know, learn and follow to keep the passion alive?   I wish that would be the next  topic in BodyRock, this site of wonderful people of insight, maybe we can all learn something?

      actually i thought the same about bodyrock.tv. it seems like it is freddy’s idea and he sort of owns it. so when they split up Zuzana is being replaced. but i didn’t want to say it out because we don’t know yet. maybe they ll really be friends, and zuzana will always be part of bodyrock.tv somehow. my point is my support is 100% with zuzana and i don’t buy in that Zuzana wants a break of doing workouts for us. we know her dedication on workouts. i say it again that best would be that Zuzana works with someone else to shot some of videos in LA so we can see both Zuzi and Jess.
      If their break up means Zuzi gonna be kicked out, i cannot accept that. BODYROCK.TV=ZUZANA!!!  No matter what. we all know it was a turning point for Zuzi to meet Freddy and start these workout videos. I hope that she s not feeling down right now. I first of all support my dear Zuzi and hope that she is doing allright emotionally than what Jess or others feel.

      Katie,
      Not that it is any of your business, but BodyRock.Tv is jointly owned by both of us. I’m sorry that the news of us taking the high road and remaining close friends and not flaming out and hating each other is an outcome so far outside of your comprehension. There are no sides to take here and quite frankly your comment is incredibly rude and divisive.

    hey you guys (and everybody) i really think that being together for a long time – in the best case evolves in what you two have, and thinking that to stay in love for the entire life means the same like being in love during the first months of the relationship would be quite naive.
    dont give up what you have because you might not find it again…

  • Nai

    So pleased that both of you have arrived at an amicable decision that means you will always be in each others lives and there for each other.
    So many times I have seen couples grow apart and it inevitably  ends in tears, anger, frustration and unfortunately a decision where they will no longer communicate or be in each others lives. Each to their own but I do feel that when you have connected for so long its such a shame to just suddenly have nothing to do with each other and seems such a waste to me.
    After all there was a reason if not many that you found each other and initiated a relationship.
    I have been through some tough times with my boyfriend where we considered many options. We are still together and love each other very much but agreed during our first spat that we would do everything in our power to remain friends and in each others lives.

    You are both wonderful people and Im excited for you as you both embark on new chapters but can still share so much together.

    I shining example of character.

    I wish you both all the best and look forward to many more years to come of Bodyrocking with you both and everyone else out there all over the world!

    Much love

    You two are burnt out from updating and running the site. Working with your spouse can be draining, because you see one another all the time. Just make sure to get out and do things on your own and have other hobbies. I would know.. I work with my husband :D . We have been there and done that! Best wishes to you both.

  • BodyRocker_Bonnie

    I respect the two of you immensely and thank you for being so open with us.  I wish you the very best in this shift in your relationship, both to each other and yourselves.  I hope that you find the balance you need together and/or apart.  My husband is my best friend and our love is very deep.  I appreciate that we respect each other’s interests and time to pursue those.  I know you two have a lot to work out, just know that you are so supported and loved by a bodyrocker from my little corner of the universe.

  • Liliya

    Reading this made me really sad, but I love you , guys a lot and appreciate everything that you do here for us, bodyrockers :) You two have and always will be one of those couples that inspire and set the example of the way relationship should be between two people for me and even though you have decided to take a short break I still have my fingers crossed for you to get back together cause you’re AWESOME and are the whole essence of Bodyrock.Tv :)
    Lots of Love and Light to both of you! 
    and thank you so much for sharing with us, that means a lot :)

    I read this yesterday a few minutes after you posted it and I just felt speechless… There were so many things coming in my mind that I wanted to write to you. Overall I feel sadness and hope for you two gentle souls.
    It looks like you made this decision months ago. Now I understand why Zuzana won’t host anymore, because you two won’t be physically together anymore. It’s a shame really…I thought you two had amazing chemistry.From my point of view, don’t marry unless you marry your best friend. Marriage is meant to be a life-long commitment ( in theory, because now-days a marriage  is pretty much anything but that ). Passion is just like a flame; it raises and it fades. But true friendship is forever ( sounds so cheesy but it is true ). You two have that; it’s a rare thing, hold on to it and nurture it. I hope this is because you did too much together and didn’t really have space for yourselves separately and maybe some time apart will just strengthen your relationship and bring you back together. That’s just my secret hope; it’s probably completely selfish, because I fell in love with the two of you and I wanted you to be together all the time. Oh man…this is sucha  bunch of blah blah …. I REALLY  feel sad about this. I root for both of you… I really wish you could be together and happy, I was even dreaming of little bodyrockers from you two.Good luck with your lives, I hope you’ll find what you’re looking for  ! Thank you again for the wonderful changes you brought in my life !

    That makes me sad…I’m super sorry to hear that you guys have decided to separate…I can totally understand what you are talking about…It’s just too bad.  I don’t want to give advice or tell you that this is right or this is wrong.. It’s right if it’s right for the two of you!  I guess we are now (I am at least) coming to an age where is no longer weddings that I’m attending…it’s my friends parents funerals and my friends are separating etc… Very surreal…

    Wow, you guys are so lovely for sharing this and being strong enough to withstand all the comments, both good and bad.  Thank you for putting yourselves out there, for being friends to each other and all of us, and for this wonderful community which you’ve inspired and created.  I know I am looking forward to the next phase of Bodyrock. 

    When I do my next workout, I am going to follow up my Erin burpee with a Zuzana and Freddy burpee!!

    Hi guys, Thank you for your honesty, trust and willingness to be so open to all of us in the BodyRock community. It is not an easy thing to do, to share matters of the heart and your personal life. You both could have simply made an announcement and asked us to respect your privacy ,but instead you welcomed us in to the details of your life together . I am honored to be your friend and offer my support to you both and our community ;-) Thank you for your commitment to us and I wish you the best whatever you two decide to do.

    Thank you for sharing guys, I wish you both the very best whatever the future may bring to you both. :)

     I wish both of you luck and unlimited happiness!:)

    I felt so sad to hear this news because I see both of you as part of my family. I wish that everything will have a happy ending for both but I give you credit for working together all these years. Even though, I love my husband so much, I would not think Ican work with him all day. I am the type of person that I need my space. You deserve the best.

    Oh my, you two have been through a whirlwind with this site. It’s brought you many places and things and probably stress. As much as you share,  I know we only see small snippets of your life.

    I’m sorry to hear your news (heart sick actually). That’s such a hard time for any couple. Thankfully you both still love and respect each other very much, which hopefully will continue and grow. We don’t know what the future will bring (as much as I sometimes wish I could). But if you have decided to talk to your viewers, I am certain you have tried a lot of different solutions before coming to this tough decision.

    I love you both very much and wish you resolve. I don’t envy you right now. That explains the iPhone post.

    Hugs n’ Love LeMe

    Zuzana & Freddy- Thanks for sharing – my heart is both sad and happy for you both…at the end of the day you don’t have to respond to anyone but yourselves and do what is best for each of you individually- which you have…I support you both and am grateful to have found you. Best wishes going forward.

    Sweet Zuzka, dear Freddy,
    You’re courageous and honest.  You’re strong and true to yourselves.  You have a wonderful relationship filled with love and respect, and you seem to know how to really follow your hearts, wherever it may lead you!  I wish strength, inner certitude, and happiness to both of you!!
    A burpee for you, lovely Zuzka, and a burpee for you, inspiring Freddy…

  • Laura

    Oh c’mon guys….u can’t do this. I feel like u broke up with me.You are in my oppinion THE BEST couple, I always said in my mind how happy you should be to have each other and I hope you will think twice before doing something wrong. You are meant to be together don’t forget. I can see this. You complete each other and hope you realise that..
    I cannot imagine bodyrock.tv without FREDDY AND ZUZANA !!
    You are my friends and sometimes like my family. I totally support you and hope you’ll get things on the right way ;) .

    I love you >♥< !

  • Kungfooflea(annalisa)

    My heart is seriously breaking for you both. I really wish you both the best no matter where life leads you. I hope that you both find peace with your decision and if not, be receptive to perhaps a change of heart. My partner is my best friend and that just makes him even harder to live without. I fully respect your choice though I am sad for your both as well. This time apart will really be the telling point as to whether your decision was the right one. Just remember how hard you worked to get together in the first place. You had your challenges to begin with and smooth sailing will just never be a part of life. I support you in all that you want and all that you do….but I also am sad to see the couple that I looked up to and likened my own relationship to, separate.  You both can accomplish anything that you desire…so if any part of you at all wants to make it work again don’t be afraid to try. All my love to you. Be happy.

    Oh I felt such sadness when I read this, like I was reading a letter from my closest friends.. Whatever you decide, I wish only the best and lots of happiness. I’ve been with my boyfriend for 8 years now, and I know those feelings of “just friendship”, but somehow it only made us closer and more connected. However, we are all different and shouldn’t compare us with others.
    Hope you’ll make it through this and stay close for years to come. Either way, you have our support. Now I understand the need for a new host, I only hope it’s not going to be longterm. Both Zuzana and Freddy are the heart and soul of Bodyrock.tv so I hope you will eventually be our host again!
    Wish you the best! :)

  • irreverend

    Wow, I feel selfishly sad about this and I want to say that you will get back together but who am I to say that? There are so many variations on relationships and I am glad to hear you have a private life- you make us feel like we know you but we don’t know everything  and that’s healthy. You may find that friendship is the most important part of any relationship and get back together and you may be generous enough with each other to be friends and move on with your lives and you may just move on. You have blessed my life so much I will bless you whatever the future holds for you.
    I would echo the comments from others that the basis of my very happy marriage is our friendship and we confirmed that with some growing pains and time apart early in our relationship but I have other good friends I am not married to and I have seen people take the romance out of their relationships and have beautiful friendships. Like I said, there are so many variations. It is really none of our business as long as you are happy! So that will be my prayer (my burpee list is getting very long) that you will get what you need now and be able to maintain the grace, dignity and integrity that you have shown so far in this process. Happiness is fleeting but joy runs underneath all of life’s difficulties so I hope that you will know the truest, deepest joy!

    That’s why Zuzka lost so much weight. It is very sad guys, but if something else didn’t happened, that you guys keeping private, if it is only because you feel more like best friends I think you guys gave up too soon! Anyway…it is your life and I wish you happiness no matter which way you go!

  • Samantha R

    Much love to you both…..  I just hope your relationship has not been wrecked by the pressures of having this site.  I’m so sad to hear this news but I’m sure that after nearly a year of trying to sort things you both know what you need to do to move forward and I wish you all the best.  Sx

    Life is complicated, things come and things go, no one knows what tomorrow will be. All that matters to me is to know that you’re still best friends and that the both of you will always be there for one another. Everyday you’re teaching us to be positive in every aspect of our lives, so I’ll keep thinking positive and whatever happens next, I wish you the best in your lives.

  • Kirry_kaatje

    When you are with someone for quite some time,  it’s more than natural that the relationship changes, and you find yourself one day on a crossroad. My own personal experience is that this often happens when people reach the age around 30 years old.

    My boyfriend and I also hit this crossroad two years ago, after being together for 10 years, but we came back together after being apart. We used this time to contemplate our own personal lives. After getting back together we knew that we genuine wanted to be together, not just ‘fake’ it and carry on. This has been the hardest thing in my life, but it saved our relationship and evolved our characters and knowledge.
     

    “If you love somebody, then set them free. if they retun, then it was meant to be.”

    All the best of love. Xx Kirry

    Dear Zuzana & Freddy,

    I really appreciate that you guys share such important and very private news to us. I have to say that I was very surprise to read what I read. I even stop chewing my breakfast and focus on what was on my screen. And more from that, I’m sad to hear that you guys are no longer bonded as a married couple. Even though it’s only been less that 1 year since I started bodyrocking with you two, but I really feel the love, the care and the commitment you’ve put into this community. I see both of you as one and such an inspiration and also a role model. I’m not married yet, however, when I do, I would like to have a person that is very supportive, full of energy, positivism and appreciate life to the fullest, like the two of you. I respect the decision you have made but I just feel like I have to let you know how sad I am to hear that, and I’m sure a lot other bodyrocker feel the same way.

    I will definitely still  support you guys and also to the community, I’m not going anywhere. Will still be right here waiting for new workout everyday :) . And also, Zuzana, I completely understand that you need a break after posting more than 600 videos every day, but please please please please be the workout host as often as you can :) :) . It doesn’t mean that I’m not welcoming the new bodyrock host, Jess, I’m sure Jess is going to be great and I will give my support, no doubt!! But it seems like not bodyrocking when Zuzana is not in it.

    Anyway, I wish you two all the best and will be waiting for new coffee talk and workout everyday!!

    Much love,
    Alisa

  • http://www.makavelina.webnode.cz Nina_CZ

    Last time I felt like this was when my parents told us they are getting apart. I was a little girl back then and it felt terrible. You both are so close to my heart that this hurts the same way. On the other side I SO MUCH understand you guys. I left my husband 6 months ago, my feeling for him faded to nothing and I was not happy in that relationship. There is nothing worse in my opinion that staying in a relationship that does not make you 100% happy. You guys are so lucky to still be great friends, lots of other couples do not have this luxury, they become enemies or even they hate each other at the end. Maybe you just need to spend some time apart to realize a few things, maybe it just really wasn’t meant to me. You enjoyed amazing time together and you accomplished so much, be proud of that. Life goes on and you are both young, still having some amazing time ahead of you. 
    I am SO HAPPY you will not become one of the “fakers” who still stay together because of bussines side of their relationship even if they are not happy with each other. That fact makes you even more REAL for other people to relate to you. 
    I will never leave you, but you should never leave us :D When parents divorce, they still have kids to take care of, you are our Bodyrock parents, you two, and nobody else.
    Love you both so much and I only wish you the best in your life! And if paths of your hearts will cross again, that would make me very happy, but if not – that is just life, it is pointless to push yourself somewhere you don’t feel like being. 
    Good luck!!! <3

      The thing is, they said that they feel like best friends, not nothing, as you have stated in your comment. There is a difference when a relationship has nothing to it– that is not Zuzana and Freddy’s case if they are being honest in their post up there.

      • http://www.makavelina.webnode.cz Nina_CZ

        Sure their feeling did not fade into nothing, I just used my experience with this (because relationship between me and my husband is nonexistent now, we are not even friends, we do not really wanna see each other anymore even though we didn’t hurt each other). I just used this as an example to show that things just happen and if you read further through my comment, you can see that I also wrote how lucky they are to still be great friends, some people are not that lucky! :)

        • Anonymous

          Yeah! I your whole comment :) I didn’t relate that part of your comment to mine, but I read it. I just interpreted my own comment through your experience and how it relates with Freddy and Zuzana’s situation… if that makes any sense!
          i guess I just misinterpreted… Either way thank you for sharing your own experiences– I think you meant it to show that things could be worse between them right now, based on your own experiences.
          I originally saw it as something else haha. Sometimes you have to think twice about the things your read & interpret.

    My love and support go out to both of you. Marriage is not easy at all,farthest the hardest thing I have ever committed to!!!
    Like good old mom says, life is a book and if you feel it’s time to turn the page to another chapter at least the both of you are moving on,many couples just stay in the same place. And who knows what life brings,you may see each other again and together in the chapters to come. You both share a connection felt through the BODYROCK Community and a deep love that still shows. Love Morphs in marriage,something I’ve experienced only honestly,because I have 3 beautiful girls and if it wasn’t for them I think my husband and I would have bailed a long time ago!
    But every situation is different, and you have our STRENGTH as a community and our LOVE!
    Thank you Freddy and Zuzana for your candid honesty,courage and love. 

    Always a BODYROCKER in soul and heart as you too are,

  • Ellen

    I won’t comment on whether leaving the marriage was the right decision or not, because truly only the both of you can know that. We only ever see a snapshot of a relationship.

    But, I would advise you to approach being friends so shortly after the break up with great caution. It is clear you have the respect, admiration and want only good for one another, but life tends to get in the way of things being that straight forward. It is better to learn how to heal alone, without one another’s support, or you will end up going through a second separation later down the line when the other person is no longer emotionally available (say, remarried). I would highly recommend you take time apart with no contact until you have fully healed, and THEN try to have a friendship.

    All the best.

  • Daniela(Duovka)

    :( (( It’s very said,when 2 people have to go trough of this,but I had the same.We were more like best friends then a couple,we never fight with each other and people around used to say what a such cute and ideal couple you are:) Remember, that one of you is mssing one more then the other and only this person can re-ignite the spark of love again,if you wouldn’t the love will never born again.Today after few years I now that.We are still meet time to time on coffee talks,but it’s to late now.Don’t miss out!!
    I feel a huge respect for you to both with this outcome and thanks for All of us to make this situation clear!!and Good luck in future for both of you whatever you do and you will do:))thank you again.Kiss

    i am really sad to hear these. you were like a great couple! :( i am sure that you thought a lot about it and right now it is the best thing to live a bit separately. and i do hope that you guy will get back together soon! ;) ) come on, you are both great, sweet, and amazing. you are meant for each other :)
    actually when i first heard about a new host, it just didn’t sound right. and maybe the bodyrockers with higher emotional intelligence had already guessed that there was something really wrong. some others blamed them for standing against change. my personal idea is that you guys should have find someone to film Zuzana too, instead of only getting a new host. i say it again Jess is NOT Zuzana. It is not gonna feel same. We also want to see Zuzana here again. As much as we appreciate that Freddy is a great photographer and makes great videos and also maybe initiated this blog, it was Zuzana that we admired and got motivated to work out with her.So please try to make videos of both Jess and Zuzana. :) )and i hope Zuzana and Freddy that you will miss each other so badly and get back together a.s.a.p!! :)

    Maybe the time apart will make you realise your feelings – you met having a distance relationship and things are oh so different when you’re together…..I really believe the two of you are meant to be together and I hope and pray you find the path back to each other – albeit it today, tomorrow or in 5 years time.
    I wish you both the very best in the paths you have chosen and would like to thank you both for what you have put into Bodyrock and put into building such an awesome on line friendship (this has gone beyond “community”).

    Hi Zuzana & Freddy,

    Firstly, thank you so much for opening up about your personal struggles and triumphs.  I am sure I speak for everyone, when I say it means so much to us all that you feel that you can utilise the community you have both put so much time and effort into helping create.

    It is a terrifying time when you come to the realisation that your relationship isn’t what it once was.  For whatever reason.  And I thank you for (just at the right time for me) – showing that its never too late to change things.  You both need to focus on yourself’s and give yourself some time to grow again and stand on your own two feet.

    Once again you are showing the BodyRock community that we all can be strong and and take steps in the right direction to make sure that we are living our lives to the best of our ability.  Whatever it takes.  It’s never too late and we can make it through.

    From the bottom of my heart I wish you the best and I soooooo look forward to seeing how you two develop the site together from here on in.  Jenn xx

    Dear Freddy and Zuzana,

    first, let me say I respect your choice, your feelings and whatever you will do what you think is right for you. I mean, nobody will know better than you guys yourself.
    But let me tell you also something that happened to me in my relationship, which I have the feeling might be something that happened to you also.

    My boyfriend and me, we live together for years now and we moved together extremely fast. This has never been a problem though, rather the opposite. We are extremely close, we are like best friends, just like you. I think, we have never been longer apart than a week and most of the time we do everything together. That sounds nice, I know, but now I think there was a time where it was TOO CLOSE. You know, we knew each other so well, the flirty, enigmatic, surprising and enticing part was somehow vanished. We were melted into one and therefore all the aggressivenes that you need for lust and passion wasn’t perceptible. We startet feeling bored when it came to being more than friends. But we solved it by being more ourselves again, by not thinking what the partner liked but what we liked ourselves, by not planning everything as a couple, but as an individual who can dissapoint the partner, by keeping secrets ;) , by flirting (not dating though) with other guys and girls and realizing how wonderful the partner actually is, by really sitting down and thinking, what we want each other for ourselves and what we would do with our lifes if the partner wasn’t there.
    Somehow by becoming individual persons again, the chemistry between us changed again, became more sizzling, more interesting and now I think we overcome this phase of being melted together to far.

    I have learned never to give up my borders, to do a lot of things on my own, not reassuring myself through my partner. I’m not trying to experience every moment with him, rather I try to live my life to the fullest myself and then listen to his experiences and telling him mine. Of course we do lots of things together as well, but we both lost ourselves by being to close together. We both have to remind ourselves that it is ok to do things that will disappoint the other one. We need to do what we really want and it keeps us both interested in each other. I am grateful that my partner loves me just the way I am and all the ways I might form into.

    So. I think moving apart might be a good step. But I want to let you know as well that you should be open to re-join again, maybe with more autonomy than before.

    Wishing you the best,
    Vala

    Zuzi, Freddie – whatever you go through, it is still going to end up being positive and strategic experience. You are going to go through this as friends with our support here and from a business standpoint view, remember where you were few year ago, hence some time soon BodyRock will be able to ‘settle’ and expand for good. Whatever changes for you or us, we are ALL BodyRockers and we DON’T give up!

    You are still two very beautiful (inside and out) people, together or not. Sending you both lots of virtual hugs :)

    P.S. Now, now… single people beware!! :) )

    I thing you are doing the right thing with separating for a while.
    I am sure you will miss each other (and most important – not as friends :) ), my advice would not to overdramatize it. Life and love would be too boring if it were going smoothly all the time…

    I’m doing an extra burpee everyday untill you guys get back to glowing like you did on Malta….
    love you guys and wish you all the best!

  • Anonymous

    Wow, this was a surprise … Even though it’s somewhat sad, I hope that your decision is full of hope and energy. I think that from now one we should be doing two burpees at the end of our workouts – one for Erin, as usual, and one for Zuzana and Freddy. Love, M

  • Renee Jt

    wow I am so sorry to hear that you are splitting up, (Lump in throat) Two best friends have a chance and I’m not giving up on you. You have encouraged so many people including myself. People have asked me in the past how do you keep  motivated? It’s Bodyrocktv I would tell them check it out. Love you two heaps. God bless you and keep open about the future together. 

  • Anonymous

    I know its crazy because I don’t really know you, I just find it so truly sad. I (like many other here I’m sure) have been in a similar place and it is never easy, no matter how amicable and how much mutual love and respect you have for each other.

    As futile as it may be, I really hope some time apart will help you grow and become whole again… an perhaps grow back together again. We must be whole in order to be all that we can be for the ones we love.

    That’s so sad :( I’m so sorry for you two..don’t know what to say.. Well I wish you all the best and still hope for happy (different) ending..but that’s up to you. We (I) support you and love you both :) take care**

      One question- are you getting a divorce or you will try to fix things?

  • ZoeRocker

    I know I don’t know you two on a personal level, but I am sad about this. It actually brought me to tears. It seems you have moved on from the initial shock though. Your love is so strong. I believe you two will move forward onto great things be it seperately or together. You have changed so many lives in a positive way. Now it is your turn and we are here for you. Thank you for sharing your personal struggle with us. It must be hard. I Hope you both are feeling positive about your decision. All the best.

  • The biggest challenge

    I really appreciate you both opening up your hearts to us. I have been in the same situation that you guys are facing. I guess the “curse” of the 7 years really exist…. we went through it and it almost broke us apart, but I can tell you that after a lot of prayer and asking God for guidance, my husband and I gave ourselves times to go through this phase, and I can proudly say that we are still married and I know he is the perfect person that I should be with. I believe marriage is forever. Give yourselves time….but stay together, Freddy go back to LA or Zuzana go to Canada… give yourselves a chance to fall in love for each other again… you will not regret!!!! I didn’t, and I know a lot of people that went through the same things are like any challenge they overcame it! Seek God’s help and healing power! I wish you guys the best… from the heart!

    Thank you both of you, for your complete honesty.  I am crying as I am writing this bc it hits very close to home for me.  I’m so grateful that you are able to share this with us, it brings to the surface the transition relationships go through.  For you two to of evolved into friends is beautiful and entirely rare.  It does speak accolades as to both of your characters.  I have never met two more open and honest ppl in my life.  You have both inspired me physically and not emotionally.  I truly hope the very best for you on this difficult time in your lives and know that myself as well as every single BodyRocker is here for you and will remain a constant in both your lives.  As you do in ours.  We are a family and I believe that is why I am shedding tears for you.  I send you both tons of Love and good Karma.  This is not the end this is the beginning of a different stage.  Much much lover and admiration to you both Freddy and Zuzana <3 <3 <3 <3

    I always thought you were brave for not only squashing life’s adversities, but also for being so open in sharing your lives with all of us. I always thought you were brave for showing us your vulnerabilities as you pushed through one workout after the next – the both of you constantly giving us everything you’ve got.

    But sharing this struggle with us has got to be among the bravest things you’ve ever done. I am truly touched that you value us to the point where you’ll share something that I know would be very difficult for me to share with just a few people.

    I am sending you both all of the positive vibes I can muster and will continue keeping you both in my heart and in my thoughts. You’ve given us so much, and I think it’s safe to say that we will give you all we can in return. Wishing peace and happiness for you both.

    Oh I am so sad….You were such an amazing couple, kind of like a role model for the great couple in a marriage. As I see more and more people, I think being the best friends is the most important, what makes a marriage a really good and long lasting one.
    Thank you for sharing your lives with us, and I wish both of you (together or apart) only the very best. (Inside I still hope a little that you find the lost intimacy with each other). You have all of the support of this huge family here on Bodyrock:)

  • Paxmercurio

    The process chosen is very healthy, being together at all creates feelings like the ones you feel now… as a couple ….  the best is your best friend, so who knows… “lo que sera, sera” , thanks for everything.

  • Claudia

    I am sorry to hear that things went that way , but very happy that you guys still and will love each other and are best friends :-) I  understand the feeling , i am going true a very bad time with my boyfriend now , we are being living together for over a yr and together as coulpe for 2 yrs . And today we kind of talk about spliting for a one reason :-( It’s a very different situation , but  the pain that you guys talk about i think it’s the same . Reading this now , with my heart as broken as it can be , by reading this , it helps me to calm down and feel with hope :-) You guys are true about our bond as a community , i watch  and do your workouts almost everyday and see your trips and life together , and for all of this it has became almost as  my family ! Even if we just contact true this way :-) I thank you for teach us to  take care of our selfs  and also care about helping people to be better :-) I sincerly wish you both the best and  wish works out for the best of both . 

    Much love to you guys , Claudia Reyna ( Miami Bodyrocker )

    Me too….I had a very interesting day so much challenge, and so many emotional factors professional and business.  No matter what we all need that ONE person, whether it is family, best friend, love, husband, who will always always always be there.  NO MATTER WHAT.  You are an amazing duo, wherever your paths will lead, you will always have the best of each other, and THAT strength is what will have created the best parts of you. THAT is the bond that made it all possible, never forget <3

  • http://dragonfly180.wordpress.com/ Cyrena

    i by no means can possibly know what goes on with you in your personal lives, but i have been married for almost a decade and can tell you that the “best friends blahs” happens to EVERY couple. i count myself lucky that i have such a constant best friend as my husband and continue to work on the spice whenever it seems to disappear. we all love you and want you to be happy. if people are upset, it’s because we think that this might be just a transitory thing that you’re going through as a couple, and we feel a little sad that you’re letting it separate you rather than make you a stronger couple. best wishes for both of you in however this turns out.

    This is very sad. I never knew how much a part of my life you both became until now. It’s like that perfect couple you knew for forever that always seemed like they would be together through old age. You two seemed so perfect. Don’t get me wrong…. I am supportive of you both and I totally respect the decisions you make. I am just shocked. I know my boyfriend and I are best friends. But maybe that kind of relationship only works for some. But I can’t tell you how much I love coming home to my best friend every day. Best wishes and Giant Bear Hugs to you both!!

    Freddy & Zuzka, it’s not easy at all to be open this much to the world. I really appreciate and respect that you share this with us. I want to let you know you have all my love and support.We will be here for you whenever you need. No matter how life throws at you, the passion and strength that you both have will help you go through this tough time. This commuinty will continue to grow  and I will give all my support no matter what direction it goes.It won’t be the same like others have said because  it will be stronger and better :)

    I would just like to say that I hope the time apart might reignite the “spark” somehow. Any marriage that lasts is one the eventually DOES become a strong companionship and friendship. Those things are even more important than “romance”, and since it sounds like you guys still have those key ingredients then I’m hoping you can still work through this together. Romance comes and goes with anyone and even in any normal, healthy marriage. Marriage is a lifetime of companionship and you guys seem to be GREAT companions. I hope it all works out :) I wish you the best and love you guys!

    Wow, I’m sitting here in total shock, and yet nothing shocks me anymore these days! I feel that you guys are so lucky to have such a wonderful relationship that you can choose not to be together and still work it out in a positive way! That is what Bodyrock is ultimately about…taking an experience and making it the BEST of what you can, growing from it and evolving into something positive, not negative! I see now that Freddie is in Canada, and that is why you guys wanted someone in his area to become the new host. I was making my video to apply to also be a host. I just want to let you know Zuz, I know the most WONDERFUL TALENTED photographer in Huntington Beach! He is a personal friend of mine and I KNOW he would love to film you!!! He films a lot of professional athletes all over the United States (know him on a very personal level!) and I would love to put you in contact with him! I’m not looking to replace Freddie, and I really don’t know what your guys exact stance is at this point, but as a fellow bodyrocker and friend, I just want to give you the utmost respect for what you guys have done and guarantee that you AND Freddie would really love my friend to help you guys continue your journey in Cali too….
    Please feel free to let me know if your interested…..I have so much to give back to you guys, you have no idea what you have done for me!!!!!!! Thanks for everything!!!!! TRULY!

    Hi Freddy and Zuzka,

    Thank you for trusting us.  You two have spent a lot of time thinking this over and you’re happy with your decision so I guess I’m happy as well.  I think many of us have had similar experiences in love and friendship.  It’s good you haven’t turned hateful and still love each other, just in a different way. 

    I think of  you both as friends and want you to do what fulfills you.  That you want to keep doing Bodyrock together is I think a good thing for the you both.

    My best wishes and love,

  • never give up

    Um. I would take a best friend as a marriage partner anyday. If it’s romance you’re missing; then you can work on that together. You can re-ignite the spark. Talk about it. Share what you want in a romantic partner. Don’t give up. You have something special together that many people will never attain.

    • Anonymous

      I agree only partly – don’t talk about it. Too much talking brought you to the stage of being best friends. Partner should allways have some things to themselves.
      Guys, wish you all the luck in the world!
      I do think you two will get through it in no-tome! A liitle time apart, than after one week apart a cosy dinner with a bottle of wine – tha spark will be back in a sec…
      lots of love to you!

        Hi guys, i’m kind of excited for the change but sad about your relationship changing. I’m really sorry that you are both going through this. I know sometimes it’s more painful to end things on a good note because there are still feelings there and you both care about each other.

         However, i do agree with a lot of people here, marriages and what you feel for each other is supposed to change with time. I did research on couples where the men had prostate cancer and all of the people said the same, after so many years, companionship, friendship and trust is much more important than anything else in a marriage. Everyone agreed that marriage is not the same as it was when they first got married. However, it’s learning how to embrace each stage that is important, not wondering why it can’t be the same as it used to be. I know you’ve probably thought about this long and hard before coming to this decision, but just don’t close the doors to each other. And as others have said, what you have is probably what a lot of people will wish their whole lives and never achieve.

      That’s exactly what I was thinking.. but I was a little scared to elaborate in my post because I didn’t want to offend anybody…
      Love isn’t always going to be that teenaged-enraged passion. It’s going to be deeper. Some people don’t understand that– butterflies don’t last forever for anybody.
      The basis of every marriage should be friendship. It’s something my mom has taught me– and she’s been married to my dad for 24 years (and counting). If  Freddy and Zuzana say they have that friendship now, then what’s the problem? They say it like it’s a problem. Most people would crave for their partner to talk to them, to interact with them instead of treating each other like sexual objects.
      I respect their choices, but they shouldn’t give up on each other so easy. I hope that this time apart does bring them together again, because the feeling that they describe in this post is something so special and sacred– what they describe is what I have felt for only ONE person in my entire life. It is something truly rare. Best friends make for the best lovers.
      But this phase is necessary for them– whatever comes out of it, is what comes out of it right?

    Freddy and Zuz, I just want to say how much I respect you both for sharing this news with us in this manner.

We are all here for you guys, supporting you through whatever it is life throws your way. Bodyrock will continue to grow and evolve and I will always be here supporting you with every change and new direction it takes. You are surrounded by love… I hope you can feel it :)  

  • Nancy

    Wow, this makes me so sad :(
    I’m glad you guys are remaining good friends and will keep working together.  I’ve been Bodyrocking since November 2010 and love your site, your workouts and your personalities!  It really has made me want to workout and gave me motivation.  I hadn’t worked out in years before that.  I hope the site will keep on going for many years…  I wish you guys the best and thank you for sharing all of this with us.

  • Hal

    Makes me very sad.  

  • Jazzy

    We appreciate you sharing this with us.

    I must be feeling what you two felt when both of you decided on this. You two are incredeable, all these months nothing has change with both of you. I can still feel the love from both of you. This made me want to cry ( like my own parents are separating or something), but im very happy that the unconditional love will always be there. I wish both of you a lifetime of happiness.

    Hello Freddy and Zuzana,
    Its good that you both are friends and are still there for each other. I am surprised with this new post. You both are in a tough spot, but time will heal you both and I hope the future will be good to u both.
    You both have dedicated lots of time and effort into this wonderful community, I hope this will keep you both connected.
    I’m glad to see that you both are taking this situation in a positive way after the emotional phase, I hope this is something temporary but I guess time will tell :)

  • Lena

    Zuzka and Freddy,

    First of all, thank you so much for your honesty and openness. I cannot say how much I respect you both. You are such positive, supportive, loving and caring people and I wish you only the best for your futures – together and apart.

    It is very sad to hear that a couple like you two couldn’t make it work – you always seemed just perfect together. However, rather than see it as a failure, your story inspires me to always be strong, honest with myself and prepared to make changes in order to be happy and true to myself. Thank you.

    I hope your community of bodyrockers can offer you some support and comfort in what will surely not be an easy time.

    I am so excited about all the new things that will be happening on Bodyrock.tv and will be here, no matter what.

    Again, all the best to you and thank you for everything you do. You are truly inspirational people.

    Lena

    I am both saddened by this and happy at the same time because not everyone can say a relationship ended on good terms. I had a feeling that you had split up and I saw several comments asking about it. I honestly wish that some people would’ve accepted the fact that you have a right to privacy and waited until you guys were ready to tell us. I feel like so many things are changing in my life and while it makes me a little sad I’m hoping that these changes will bring even better things. I’m learning to accept change and I’ve finally come to terms with the new hosts thing. Good luck to both of you. You deserve nothing but the best in life.

  • BodyRocker-Nathalie

    Freddy and Zuzana, Thank you for being so open and honest about what’s been going on with you guys. The same thing happened to me and my first husband. He is now my best friend and we share 2 little boys together. We realized that we were not meant to be married and it was really hard but we are so much better for it now.
    I love you guys so much and want you both to be so happy. I love this community and can’t wait to experience its growth.
    All the best to you both, and much love.

    Best of wishes and love to you both – you bring so much love, inspiration and determination to ALL of us. MUAH.

    As I had posted before; change is so hard. My best to both of you. This is not a journey that either have taken lightly and my hope is that you will continue to heal and grow as you move on.

    You have my undying support. Both of you. I’m a BodyRocker for life, no matter where you guys live; together or apart:) 

  • Bohdanam

    There was something in the air I could feel happening with you guys.
    And as I’m sorry about it, I wish you both the BEST!!!!
    I hope you both will be working on this great website together , but this is life and you both will play it’s cards the best way you know and can.
    Sending you both LOVE , strength and peace in your harts.

    :( ((( Oh my god. I’d just discovered BR last month and am building up a steady workout routine – all based on the encouraging posts by Freddy and Zuzana and also the comments from other BodyRockers here. I really do admit that this came as quite a shock to me because this is all new to me, the idea of loving yourself and supporting others in a living a healthy life. I guess I kinda put Freddy and Zuzana at an ideal pedestal in my mind and I always admired their work together. I wanted a relationship like that. So, yeah, I’m upset, naturally. But having said all that, I’m glad you will be friends and still care for each other. I have a part of me that says that it will end like so many other breakups…where you’ll drift apart and soon Freddy and Zuzana will just be this guy Freddy and another girl Zuzana. I hope not, I wish you two all the best. I have not seen Jess leading a workout yet, but honestly, I have never seen a workout video as personal, sweet, encouraging and inspiring as Zuzana has done.

  • ZoeRocker

    Wow! I never thought I’d read about you guys breaking up! It’s hard to hear. It seems so many people these days are questioning their relationships. Myself included. You two are so loving and positive. Everything is going to work out great for you both. You have a wonderful supportive community here that you can turn to at anytime you need to. I can’t really see either of you needing advice since you give it so beautifully every time you write a post. I wish the best for both of you and you have my 1000% support. Thank you for all you do. Much love to you.

    My parents always say to me that love/marriage isn’t always going to be about butterflies and sparks– eventually those fade away after some time. What lasts in a marriage is the ability to communicate with, respect, and love one another as best friends. The lustful feeling that people associate with love won’t last forever.
    But I would assume that a loss in intimacy of the emotional kind would have a startling impact on the relationship. Usually people should feel like they were one (this is what I mean by intimacy)– but you two feel like two separate people.. And that bond of being one is really important in a non-friendship relationship…
    I wish the best for you two! It’s a tough phase, but who knows what will come of the future.
    This is so sad!

    I have so much love for both of you, together and separately, and I just wish for all of this to be as positive and smooth of an experience as possible for both of you.  I’m glad that you kept this to yourselves, I must say, for most of the year, so that you could tell your “children” (LOL) with what seems like a clear mind and heart–or at least, as clear as possible.  I would be lying if I said this didn’t make me cry, but of course that’s silly.  I think we all just look up to our role models and want them to fulfill certain things, or prove certain things that we WANT to be true, but we each are on our own journeys, and often some of the best changes in our lives come with tears and discomfort.

    My heart goes out to both of you with open arms.  Heartbreak is a terrible-feeling thing, even if deep love and friendship are on the other side of it.  You are both such wonderful, beautiful spirits, and I hope you feel all the BodyRock loooooovvvee cyber-hugging you whenever you feel lonely or sad or lost.  mmmmmmMMMMMMMHHH!!!! That was my hug!  

    Thanks for being honest, too.  For selfish reasons, I DO strongly hope and wish that Zuzana still designs the workouts and posts videos!  It sounds like you’re still friends and business partners on this venture, and I think you can only move up from here.  :)

    Best wishes to you both.  The future always holds the unknown, You can never be sure what it holds, and the curve ball is always the trickiest.

    thank you guys so much for being honest with all of us, you had no obligation to do so.

    this is the exact same end that i just came to with my past relationship, it wasn’t out of resentment but really the feeling of just being best friends..no more butterflies. its hard to do, after being with each other for so long…

    i’m glad you two will still be there for each other and with us :) love you guys :)

  • Bodyrocker_Audra

    As disheartening as it sounds I know you two will continue on for the better. The passion you two have for this following is so much more than everything you could have imagined and I just want to say that I’m here to stay and that you two have my support no matter what life throws at you. I’m a heartbroken for you two and believe me I have only been married for 10 years now and me and my hubby have had the “TAlK” two times already and I know how hard it is to keep it together especially for our two little girls. Your human and people change and feelings change, and for you two to stick around together for us Bodyrockers makes me appreciate you two so much more! If you two ever, ever need anything don’t ever hesitate to send me a message… I’m there for the both of you! I just want to give you two the biggest hug ever! Much Love to Zuzka and Freddy!

    Man, I would have never, ever thought that you would be posting about your break up.  I want you to know that I am trying to be sensitive to your own personal lives…and there might be something more that you chose not to post about….but I guess I do not understand.  And maybe I do because my “best friend” walked away from me and our lovely cat.  I miss him very, very much and I wish that he knew that I think he is one sexy man.  Anyways, I hope the best for both of you.  Lady Gaga’s song You and I maybe what you need to sing at the top of your lungs.

    Thanks for sharing this with all of us BodyRockers! It really shows how much you care and are devoted to your fans and work! LOVE LOVE the workouts and you guys keep me motivated all the time when I go to the gym. I see the results and I REALLY do enjoy the workouts! It keeps me wanting to push further and further. Good luck with everything, hoping for all the best. Much love from Ottawa, ON, Canada!! Mixxx

    Hi Freddy and Zuzka…I have to admit that reading this post just made me really sad, it was shocking to me even though I had a feeling for a while now there had to be something going on with your relationship that led to all these new changes.  I wish both of you the best with your new lives and I will continue supporting your site no matter what.

    To a new and brighter future!

    Oh, this news is really heartbreaking to me. I hope that, maybe with some time apart, you’ll realize that you belong together again. You’d be surprised how many couples have had to take a break and ended up back together again. Other times it doesn’t work out that way. You’ll have to make the decision that’s best for you. But whatever you decide, you both must know that you have the undying love and support of bodyrockers all over the world. Thinking of you both right now and sending cyber hugs and cyber burpees.

    Dear Freddy and Zuzka:

    Even though I had never written on this wall until now, I am a bodyrock member and I follow the site regularly. As you said, it’s almost like a big family.
    The reason I am writing to you, is because I felt deeply connected to each one of your words and I understand you completely. The same thing happened to me about 7 years ago with my first husband. I am argentinian, I live in Buenos Aires, and he was english. We were together for 6 years and suddenly we realized the same thing you did in January. We were not a couple, we were family and best friends.
    I can only tell you that even though it was painful at the time, we still have a really good relationship (over the phone) since we live in separate continents now. I got married again, and he’s getting married soon too. We are both happy for each other.
    I don’t know, maybe you don’t need me telling you my story…I just want to let you know that I fully understand you and you are both great people…I love you both and I am here for you!!

  • Leigh&Kirstin

    We wish you both all the best with your lives….Zuzanna has been an incredible inspiration to us. I hope you both find happiness and continue to rock our world….and Zuz if you ever feel like a holiday in Devon Uk  drop us a line Leigh and Kirstin lots of love from us both xxxx

  • Tburke

    Good luck and much love to the both of you; you’re incredible people and you both deserve to be happy. Thanks for sharing such a deeply personal experience with us, you’re both amazing and you’ve made the right decision. Peace.

  • Charlene

    Z&F…the thing I always say about you to my friends about why I do your workouts is that you guys are sincere. You don’t pretend to have perfect lives and I’m really grateful for that. You both have my support and I’m sure the support of our whole community as your relationship evolves and bodyrock.tv evolves along with it. Lots of hugs.

    Freddy and Zuzana~ Of course you have my undying support..

I can’t imagine my life with out bodyrock.tv or you guys in it… so thank you for continuing this wonderful journey and for allowing us to continue it with you..
