Change is Good! Keep on Rocking

Hi BodyRockers,

Please watch my coffee talk where I talk about why I won’t be hosting the workouts, and why I want you guys to be more involved. It’s important for me that you know it and that you don’t get confused by certain comments.. Thank you again for your support. You have been really great lately and I hope we can go through the changes together as a family.

Best,

Zuzana.

    Missing you on bodyrock Zuzana :) Hope you’re well!

    I am totally bummed!!!!! :( (((((( But I totally get that Zuzana wants to explore different things but my surprise when I came back after a month of slacking off and there was some other chick on the videos. I love the workouts so I’ll be here…. hopefully more frequently. But waaaa <<< my baby cry :)  

  • John Rice

    Love you Z! We all have to what we need to do in this life for ourselves and close family and friends first. While we all love watching and listening to you, you’ve already provided years of great content that anybody can use, now and even hundreds of years from now, to get into excellent shape. I’ll always be a big fan no matter what you do and wish you the best of luck always!

  • Cimonna

    Hi Freddy & Zuzana,
    You big fellows have done such a site, you are giving people the beauty and health! Zuzana you’re the best! You are an incentive for all of us!

    ok I’m ready for the recipes!

    Although I totally understand and respect your decision not to be featured in the videos anymore, Zuzana, I have to be honest: as a woman, watching YOU do the workouts, with your amazing, athletic body and your special on-camera style and charisma, was what attracted me to them and kept me motivated. I’m sure many others feel similarly, especially women who look to you personally as a physical role model.

    With that said, I certainly wish you and Freddy the best, and again, I respect that this is your decision to make. 

  • Mak

    One thing I wanted to mention was the shift from having only zuz do the workout without a coach to push her to having Sean (and Jess) doing the workout with coaching. Having someone there push you to do the max is great, but I think most of us are on our own. I liked the fact that Zuz was pushing herself, and it motivated me to push myself. With the addition of coaching, I’ve kind of feel like I can’t possibly do as well as Sean or Jess. I feel like I’m at a disadvantage. Does that make sense? Does anyone else feel this way?

  • MissJLadron

    Thank you Suzana for the explanation to all of us, your followers and fans. I wish you both good luck. Will miss you. I saved some of your videos from youtube on my favorites. I’m so sad to see u go but I understand u have to do what’s best for you.

  • Uyen_phan

    Thank you so much for everything you’ve shared with us. I really appreciate all the workouts you put toghether for us. Hope you enjoy your time off. Peace :)

  • Sil

    I think it is really a great idea to watch “normal people” bodyrocking, Zuzana has an amazing body, so perfect that, although its inspiring, its good to know other people who are reaching for the same goals in exercising in order to get that force and looks like the beautiful Zuzana.

  • Michael Mixon

    No one will ever be able to replace you you are amazing and have been an real inspiration to me. Im really sad to see you leave but you have to do what you feel is right so I hope the best for you and I will pray for you that you find what you need. You are one of the most amazing trainers that I have ever watched I know that you really put your heart into it and I thank you for what you do.I hope that you will make an appearance ever now and again so that we can see how your doing. I will personally miss you very much. because of you I am a Bodyrocker for life :) Good luck Zuzana

  • Geoff

    thanks for explaining. my wife and i love to body rock together and its nice to know it wont be going away. you guys rock! i had an idea that would help a lot of rockers out: studies show that during cardiovascular endurance exercise, listening to music helps to better maintain focus and maintain cognitive ability when youre done, by 20-30%! i noticed that in all of your videos, there is no music playing. while this is all well and good, my idea was that if you find a cool song that would be good for working out to, you could post it or maybe mention it. i dont know how this internet thing really works, but it would be cool to see. i am looking forward to positive change and new things to come!

  • Brett R South

    Love you, keep your chin up and spirits high. You are an inspiration!

  • KIMBERLAKE93

    Great words, Becki!  :)

  • Romy

    really is all weird now.!!! it lost the meaningfor all.

    the charm of all was her naturalness and conversation and our opinion…

    their condition affect the whole team,sad but true.no more intresting:(((((

  • Laura Nikkinen

    Zuzana and Freddy, you are an awesome BodyRock team (to say the least), hope you’re both doing well :) Change can be scary, but it is what life is about, and we roll with it. I’ve followed you a long time now (a couple of years) and will continue to Bodyrock with you guys, and obviously the whole BodyRock community. Hopefully we will get to see Jess hosting a workout soon, can’t wait for it! I really wanna try the new recipe for the cookies too (the Garbanzo ones), but I’m kinda lazy when it comes to cooking :D But my next challenge is… Learning how to cook. Wish me luck, lol. Gonna need it. Like… Seriously.

  • Divinitylight

    Zuzana and Freddy have been nothing but supportive for all of us Bodyrockers for years, and I feel that we too need to be supportive of them and all of the changes that are happening, both personally and professionally.  That is what a true team does!

  • Vala

    Hey Zuzana!

    Will you continue posting your scores for the workouts!?
    I’d love to keep on trying to beat you :)

    Best,

    Hi guys!

    Sometimes things just get out of your control and things feel like chaos. People say this and that and you just get caught up in it, time just spins away and eventually you don’t know what to think – is this how it’s supposed to be? why are people saying these things? what is my own opinion and what is opinions planted by others?

    We all go through changes in life, good and bad, and that’s just – you now – life. Nothing is solid but change. Right now you guys are having a, I can imagine, hard time. It’s not easy to always know how things are going to turn out, you’ll just have to wait and see and follow your heart and your gut feeling. I’ve had some major changes many times in my life, and eventually I came out stronger and more confident. I’m sure you will do to.

    i think that you Z&F have been very mature about your decision. It’s not easy to have to share this with everyone, but as your site is so personal it would have been really difficult not to tell eventually anyway. I hope that no matter you will stay apart or find a way back to each other – keep talking and be honest to one another about how you feel about the decision, and your work on the sight. It feels like you have been wanting to step down for some time Z, no judging, just that I can really see how much time and energy you (and F to of course) must put into every video. Sometimes you just need a break and I totally understand that. 

    I’m really looking forward to seeing Jess (especially since we share name, ha ha) and keep getting my inspiration from this site. Remember that this tsunami of feeling (supportive and not) from the comments – this to shall pass. Thank you so much for sharing and giving me and all fellow bodyrockers so much inspiration and feedback! Take care!

    I have nothing to add on bodyrockers comments, I’m really sad but can’t be selfish, I’m used to see you as one person and it’s difficoult for all of us I think.. I actually cried when I knew, but I wish you guys are taking the right direction on your lives, I don’t want to talk about your personal lives but it’s always good to try, I think you tried but I had to say…. I’m sure we all here love you and we all here want the best for you two.. Hope you guys are taking the best decision, I’l miss you Zuzana, because you’re some kind of a hero for me, but I’ll still be following you whatever you go! Wish you the best, always… I got used to see Zuzana every day… and some years passed, I think, 3 or 4 years, not sure, you guys were my fellows when I broke up a 7 years relationship and without you I couldn’t keep my life going well, the tips, the exercises, the positive energy kept me awake for life when I passed that dark time… Today I’m very happy, and I wish you guys all the happiness life can give a person… and hope you don’t pass thru the dark time I passed… I LOVE YOU!

    I think this is your life and I am just greatfull that both of you took us on the journey with you. Every journey will have some bumps and unkowns in the road, the important thing is to move passed it and enjoy life. Thanks for everything and you definitely have my support :) Can’t wait to see the new changes. Stay strong and positive!!

  • Carrie

    I think enough has been said already on the subject, but I’d just like to add that I ultimately come to this website to do some workouts, learn how the exercises are done, check out some interesting recipes from time to time and see what the bodyrock community is up to. I don’t really see that changing. I wish both Z and F all the best in what must be a daunting time, but there are new adventures ahead for both of them, and I think we should leave them to get on with those adventures rather than sending negative messages about ‘I want this’ or ‘I don’t want this’. Just wait and see the new changes first before dissing them.

  • Trent Fadden

    Hi Zuzana &Freddy
    Thank you for all that you have done and all that you have planned in the future. Its exciting as well as scary news of your personal changes but like all of us, life is what you make it. All your true fans/friends support you Body & Soul. And I for one can’t wait to try out some of your other recipe’s. The Garlic meat balls and tomato looks amazing. 

  • Sabrina

    Well that is cool! I used to be on wikipedia myself but just recently I was taken down because my completion has more pull with the wikipropoganda then I do. But get ready for the weirdness, the strangest thing is not that everyone wants to tell you how to live but when they just start talking to you like they know you. (which is actually just slightly more comfortable then having them stare at you the whole time you eat your meal in a a restaurant). But he looks like a cool guy, im sure he will handle it well.
    Love and hugs,
    Sabs.

  • MariaM

    Zuzka and Freddy, no matter what you guys decide to do, I think I can speak for the greater majority of people here when I say that I am behind you guys 100% no matter what direction you decide to take with bodyrock.tv…Those of us who have been following you from the get go (from when you were in Malta in my case hehe) truly love you and what you do, and we only want the best for you. I do not understand people who are being negative about this… this has been your personal choice and challenge from the very beginning to open up to us about how you live and workout, so you do not owe people anything, and you are nothing but deserving of support and respect. All the best and I’m super excited about the new recipes…more breakfast cakes please!!! :D  
    Love xo
    Maria

  • Alexandra Dunn

    Oh Zuzana this breaks my heart. I’m not really sure why…there are so many things, bad things going on in my life right now, bodyrock is my sanctuary next to God it’s the only thing that keeps me okay. You’re my hero Zuzana you saved my life. I used to look in the mirror everyday and cry. But for the first time ever I love my body. You did that. I’m scared but eager to see what will happen next…but please don’t give up on us. You may only be one person, but you’ve helped us all and we still need you. I hope that what you’re doing now is really going to fulfill you and make you happy. I love you Zuzana, thank you for everything you’ve done for me. Thank you for saving me from myself.

    Zuzka, you look so so sad in this videos, that it also makes me sad!! I just want you to know that there are a lot off truly bodyrockers, that respect you and Freddy, and that will keep following and all the changes!! Please, just don’t care about the negative coments!!
    I really really wish the best for you two!!
    I will always be a bodyrocker! For ever!!

  • Katie

    The administrator of this site keeps removing my comments and feedback regarding why I said what I did, their moderation casts them as innocents and myself as someone how has no evidence.  I have supported this site in many ways over the years, and will just have to start putting my comments onthat NYTimes article where I won’t be censored.  Do you like that, Freddy??

    • http://www.facebook.com/kendra.oberhauser Kendra Lee Oberhauser

      Stop.  You are hurting Zuzana’s feelings.  She said so in her post.  Why do you want to do that?  You are also starting to come across as obsessive and crazy.  If you want to trash talk, do it on other sites.  Go to the New York Times and stop making weird threats.  Please. Please. Please.

  • Katie

    Not even worth my time….

    Z&F,

    I’m sending you both prayers and good thoughts and burpees and hugs. You have both done so much for all of us– the least we can do in return is to be understanding and supportive as you go through these big changes (both personal and with the website.) Stay strong and know that there are thousands of people here who love you and want the best for you!

    You have never let us down before, so I know for sure that if you believe that these changes are what is best for you both and for the Bodyrock movement, then I’m 100% behind them!

    In fact, I’m excited for the changes. I will miss Zuz in the videos (because, DUH, you are my idol!) but I am willing to bet that there are TONS of Bodyrockers out there who can, and will, offer some wonderful inspiration for us all. It also gives us something to aspire to (“Maybe someday I’LL be featured!! I better work harder!!”) Bring it on, Bodyrockers, let’s see what you got! ;) (Side-note, Jess is gorgeous and I can’t wait for her workouts!!)

    Take care of yourselves. You can’t do this community justice if you’re not taking care of YOUR needs first. Rest, travel, cook, focus on you. You have set us all up to succeed- we’re a well-oiled machine at this point and we can take care of ourselves for a little while. We got this! You deserve a break.

    Love you both. Thank you for everything!

    Tonia

    Zuzka, you´re truly an inspiration to me. I just broke up with my boyfriend I´ve been living with and my heart is broken. I had no idea you were going through something like this. I respect you truly, I think you´re a very strong woman. And I know what´s coming it´s gonna be great.
    All my love and support goes to you. I´ll miss seing you in the videos but I understand your wishes.
    Thank you both for keep Bodyrock going for all your hard work!
    All the best Zu!!!

    Zuzka, you are a beautiful soul! I

    I know it’s SO hard when you are such a loving person, but try not to take negative comments to heart. Remember you will never be able to please everyone all the time and some people are never happy. Remember, too,  that people are only upset because they love you and you have made such a positive impact on their lives.But you are a human being, you have needs and in order to continue giving as you love to do, you need to look after yourself first.PLEASE, don’t be upset about any negativity. Focus on all the love and positive comments. The negative ones don’t serve you.Much love

  • ZoeRocker

    In case some of you missed my comment on the other post, I left it here also.

    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’s like 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 we have 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 favourite vegetable also:)

  • Shirin_ramez

    Hello Zuzana and freddy,

    I never post comments on your site, I just follow and admire as much as I can..
    You two are one of a kind and the world needs more people like you. I truly From the bottom of my heart wish both of you the best in what ever pathes you wish to follow.
    I was thinking of becoming part of bodyrock when you were looking for hosts in canada because I love what you guys do for others I just don’t feel confident enough, maybe one day I will.. just so i can share some of my fitness experience with the amazing community you two have created..
    You not only inspire this community to be fit and healthy but also to be better people.

    I really hope this gets posted.

    Tons of love to the two of you,
    Shirin.

  • BodyRocker_Bonnie

    Zuzka and Freddy, I am really excited to see all the new changes coming up.  New site features, new workouts with Jess, new recipes and coffee talks from Zuz…thank you both for all your efforts and I think its awesome that this community is going to grow in new ways.  I hope that people are ready to embrace this and be the supportive community that we are supposed to be.  You can count on me :)

  • Katie

    It sounds like you only want to read comments that you agree with.  My post wasn’t negative, and I am not trying to change anything, the site is changing on it’s own. I do like and use the site, but I have a right to defend my comment.  I don’t know why everyone wants me to say the same thing they do.  I have already reposted my original comment, maybe you should check it out. 

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KWYNAN3YBVHDVE4SFFIO66GLNQ Abby

    I can’t believe anyone would say something like that. I haven’t read all the other comments – but, I’m sorry for the cruelty. You’ve made a tough but very admirable decision. It’s hard to make the choice sometimes to pursue your dreams and goals when others are likely to look at them and disagree with your choices. We’re behind you both!!

    Dear Zuzana!
    It must have cost you quite an effort to react on those negative comments, now that the breakup is just a short time ago. We see it in the video and that you still did it and made this whole thing clear for us – especially the point with Freddy – shows that you are still close together.Of course I feel with you and your situation came in my mind a lot of times during the day. No one knows which twists life has for us. Our challenge is to make the best of it and see the positive things. Every change is scary, even if it is a good one. Take your time to find out what is best for you.

    I did the “survivor” workout for both of you today ;-)

  • Daniela

    I don’t know what to say..that’s why I haven’t sad anything so far. I am just so sorry and also sad about your break up. i am sorry, that some people sad stupid things..don’t let that get to you. you and freddy are two wonderful people. you have 100 percent support here…big hug from me, daniela

  • Rsaenz999

    I felt a little bit of sadness in you in this video…..i think is a good idea to have somoene else doing the videos once in a while but im sure all of as want you to make the videos also because at first me and im sure lots of people began doing this because you were the inspiration….so i hope to see you often doing videos…..and yes we can see other people doing them but we need you too…..all this is because of you.
    Thank you Zuzana and Fredy

  • SunShine2202

    Freddy and Zuzka,

    I have never actually posted on here, although I have been doing your workouts for about 1 1/2 years now.  I just wanted to send you some encouragement.  Since reading your post about what has happened between the two of you my heart has just ached for you.  I want you to know I have been thinking of you and lifting you up in prayers.  Please don’t give up on your marriage!  Marriage is a life-long covenant, not just a promise, between two people to stick things out through thick and thin  It is not always easy and the romantic electric spark does fade.  Real love is action, not feeling….It means making the decision to respect each other and stay together even when how you feel says otherwise.   Sometimes how we feel and doing what is right are two different things.  My husband and I have had our difficulties, but sticking together and working things through has always made our relationship stronger.  Sometimes the spark is there, and sometimes it isn’t.  Just like in our training, there is always the temptation not to workout and eat well, but sticking with it yields results.  If we give up when it gets hard then we never achieve the next level of fitness and wellbeing.  Even though I don’t know the two of you personally I care for you very much.  I want to encourage you to do whatever it takes to stay together.  I call my husband my best friend, and I would never let that go.  Fight for it!

  • Lisal7080

    You are and will always do great things the real BodyRockers are here and will support you both thank you for everything you do and have done.

    Offcourse I was surprices when I read about you guys. Everyone was.. (I think) But these things happen. It is so great you are still such good friends.. That is beautiful..!
    About the hosts.. It will be something to get used to. And I hope we will still see you lots of times in other video’s, Zuzana.. Other wise I will miss you SOOOOOOO much.. I will be crying.. And I am serious about that.. I am almost crying allready.. And for me.. I wouldn’t want to be a host.. I would feel quite uncomfortabel being on camera.. So I respect Jess for doing this.. and all the others that will follow..
    I wish you all the best Zuzana and Freddy. Hope the community will grow stronger.. Thanks.. Love you guys!

    This is something I came across im not trying to say anything o just want to shared this … by Lupe Romo on Monday, October 24, 2011 at 10:57am Married or not… you should read this. Marriage.

    “When I got home that night as my wife served dinner, I held her hand and said, I’ve got something to tell you. She sat down and ate quietly. Again I observed the hurt in her eyes. Suddenly I didn’t know how to open my mouth. But I had to let her know what I was thinking. I want a divorce. I raised the topic calmly. She didn’t seem to be annoyed by my words, instead she asked me softly, why? I avoided her question. This made her angry. She threw away the chopsticks and shouted at me, you are not a man! That night, we didn’t talk to each other. She was weeping. I knew she wanted to find out what had happened to our marriage. But I could hardly give her a satisfactory answer; she had lost my heart to Jane. I didn’t love her anymore. I just pitied her! With a deep sense of guilt, I drafted a divorce agreement which stated that she could own our house, our car, and 30% stake of my company. She glanced at it and then tore it into pieces. The woman who had spent ten years of her life with me had become a stranger. I felt sorry for her wasted time, resources and energy but I could not take back what I had said for I loved Jane so dearly. Finally she cried loudly in front of me, which was what I had expected to see. To me her cry was actually a kind of release. The idea of divorce which had obsessed me for several weeks seemed to be firmer and clearer now. The next day, I came back home very late and found her writing something at the table. I didn’t have supper but went straight to sleep and fell asleep very fast because I was tired after an eventful day with Jane. When I woke up, she was still there at the table writing. I just did not care so I turned over and was asleep again. In the morning she presented her divorce conditions: she didn’t want anything from me, but needed a month’s notice before the divorce. She requested that in that one month we both struggle to live as normal a life as possible. Her reasons were simple: our son had his exams in a month’s time and she didn’t want to disrupt him with our broken marriage. This was agreeable to me. But she had something more, she asked me to recall how I had carried her into out bridal room on our wedding day. She requested that every day for the month’s duration I carry her out of our bedroom to the front door ever morning. I thought she was going crazy. Just to make our last days together bearable I accepted her odd request. I told Jane about my wife’s divorce conditions. . She laughed loudly and thought it was absurd. No matter what tricks she applies, she has to face the divorce, she said scornfully. My wife and I hadn’t had any body contact since my divorce intention was explicitly expressed. So when I carried her out on the first day, we both appeared clumsy. Our son clapped behind us, daddy is holding mommy in his arms. His words brought me a sense of pain. From the bedroom to the sitting room, then to the door, I walked over ten meters with her in my arms. She closed her eyes and said softly; don’t tell our son about the divorce. I nodded, feeling somewhat upset. I put her down outside the door. She went to wait for the bus to work. I drove alone to the office. On the second day, both of us acted much more easily. She leaned on my chest. I could smell the fragrance of her blouse. I realized that I hadn’t looked at this woman carefully for a long time. I realized she was not young any more. There were fine wrinkles on her face, her hair was graying! Our marriage had taken its toll on her. For a minute I wondered what I had done to her. On the fourth day, when I lifted her up, I felt a sense of intimacy returning. This was the woman who had given ten years of her life to me. On the fifth and sixth day, I realized that our sense of intimacy was growing again. I didn’t tell Jane about this. It became easier to carry her as the month slipped by. Perhaps the everyday workout made me stronger. She was choosing what to wear one morning. She tried on quite a few dresses but could not find a suitable one. Then she sighed, all my dresses have grown bigger. I suddenly realized that she had grown so thin, that was the reason why I could carry her more easily. Suddenly it hit me… she had buried so much pain and bitterness in her heart. Subconsciously I reached out and touched her head. Our son came in at the moment and said, Dad, it’s time to carry mom out. To him, seeing his father carrying his mother out had become an essential part of his life. My wife gestured to our son to come closer and hugged him tightly. I turned my face away because I was afraid I might change my mind at this last minute. I then held her in my arms, walking from the bedroom, through the sitting room, to the hallway. Her hand surrounded my neck softly and naturally. I held her body tightly; it was just like our wedding day. But her much lighter weight made me sad. On the last day, when I held her in my arms I could hardly move a step. Our son had gone to school. I held her tightly and said, I hadn’t noticed that our life lacked intimacy. I drove to office…. jumped out of the car swiftly without locking the door. I was afraid any delay would make me change my mind…I walked upstairs. Jane opened the door and I said to her, Sorry, Jane, I do not want the divorce anymore. She looked at me, astonished, and then touched my forehead. Do you have a fever? She said. I moved her hand off my head. Sorry, Jane, I said, I won’t divorce. My marriage life was boring probably because she and I didn’t value the details of our lives, not because we didn’t love each other anymore. Now I realize that since I carried her into my home on our wedding day I am supposed to hold her until death do us apart. Jane seemed to suddenly wake up. She gave me a loud slap and then slammed the door and burst into tears. I walked downstairs and drove away. At the floral shop on the way, I ordered a bouquet of flowers for my wife. The salesgirl asked me what to write on the card. I smiled and wrote, I’ll carry you out every morning until death do us apart. That evening I arrived home, flowers in my hands, a smile on my face, I run up stairs, only to find my wife in the bed – dead. My wife had been fighting CANCER for months and I was so busy with Jane to even notice. She knew that she would die soon and she wanted to save me from the whatever negative reaction from our son, in case we push through with the divorce.— At least, in the eyes of our son—- I’m a loving husband…. The small details of your lives are what really matter in a relationship. It is not the mansion, the car, property, the money in the bank. These create an environment conducive for happiness but cannot give happiness in themselves. So find time to be your spouse’s friend and do those little things for each other that build intimacy. Do have a real happy marriage! If you don’t share this, nothing will happen to you. If you do, you just might save a marriage. Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” By — Islamic Reflections

    you looked so sad on this post, I shed a tear with this, im really so sad about the changes on the site but I trust on you. I think that people who wrote rude comments aren’t really bodyrokers, they couldn’t be, because this is a supportive comunity. I’m gonna miss you a lot I mean to see you doing your best in work out. you have been mi ispiration a long time, so if for you I started pushing hard, for you I’m gonna learn to cook. I will follow you Zuz. and of course I’m gonna keep bodyroking.

    I am still sad about it and I still have a lots of hope in my heart (there is no hope for me, I will still be hoping, haha) :) but I understand so much why you are doing this…
    I can’t wait to see more about Jess, and I also can’t wait to see more coffee talks and other random videos from Zuzanka. I was so emotional about this whole situation, that I had to make a blogpost about it :D if anyone is interested.. http://tinyurl.com/65l34x8 It is easier for me than write it all again :) ))

  • Katie

    The way that the workouts have been packages are sexual.  I simply stated that it seemed ok before since F and Z were married but now to have someone new in there, I hope she isn’t sexed up like Z was.  First of all, who knows if Jess has a similar modeling background as Z  but for sure we know she isn’t married to Freddy, so I simply stated that it would feel gross to see Freddy film her in the manner that he had been filming his wife.  We don’t know yet, but the pics of Jess are a little sexy, we’ll all have to wait and see, and try not to get too offended when people post comments! Everyone is so touchy, and I have to say, this is a workout forum, not a counseling session for marital problems.  I am sure Z and F have their life under control, but my post didn’t pick them apart personally or talk about their personal life, I have been sticking to the workout and business side, since I liked watching Zuzana and now will not get to do so as frequently, or it remains to be seen, if we will at all. But again, I have no interest in who they are personally, my only interest has ever been their great workout vids. That’s sort of the whole point of body rock…get in shape at home with Z. Now it will be get in shape at home with Jess or whomever, and you know, just like any product, they have to prove it is good.  I don’t have any loyalty to the new girl ( no offense Jess– I feel terrible that you have to start under these circumstances).  But I am sure they will lose some traffic due to this, but they will also gain some, only the numbers will tell! This place has felt like a junior hiugh school girls locker room this weekend, geez!

    Hey Zuzana

    I’ve been following bodyrock for about a year and I don’t comment much but when I heard about the situation and saw how sad you were in the video I felt that I should. First off I’m very sad to hear that you guys are separating but I know its your life and your decision. I’ve read people saying that believing that you guys can be friends after is not keeping it real but I believe other wise. I’ve seen couples separate and become enemies or not even bother with each other but I’ve also seen couples get along and know of some that are great friends now. I guess its just how people work through everything and if they genuinely want it to work out. Who knows what life has in store for you both, just hope its the best for you two :) . Zuzana I hope you do stay and put up videos wether it be for recipes (which I love) or coffee talk what ever it is because I love to hear from you . I came to bodyrock because I saw how fit and beautiful you are and then I grew this connection because of how caring and supportive you are so I wish I continue to see that. It wouldn’t be the same if we didn’t see you around. Take time to take care of yourselves and do what what you guys think is best for you. Thank you Z&F for this website its helped so many people including myself. Lots of love and positive energy sent your way :)

    hey Zuzana, im finding my self thinking of you all day. im giving you a big hug and much love from here. i know you alone right now and it is not nice to go  through all of that and have no one to hold you and hug you. so im sending you my love and prayers for you from here.

    Freddy and Zuzana, I will always love and support you whether you are together or going separate ways. Life gives us so many opportunities we often choose to let go of. I can see that you are those people who don’t want that happen to you. Don’t let anyone stop you. We often need certain people for a certain period of time in our lives. I  guess your time with each other ended. Oh well. Sad, but it’s the beginning of smth new. And I am happy that you take us all on this journey with you. You both have a life full of adventures ahead of you, I am sure.
    Can’t wait to see  those other things you want to offer us besides the workouts.
    XOXO

    People will always have negative comments but us bodyrockers are strong minded and are here to help you look past the negativity ;) We are all here for you and Freddy as well and will keep on supporting you both!

    Zuzka, don´t be sad about some comments. I totally understand that it is frustating and annoying. I think the reason might be that this site attracts also people who aren´t into fitness and are unhappy with themselves and it seems so easy to be a very “smart” person here in cover of anonymity. And you´ll always fing these smart people everywhere.
    You two have so many followers who truly care about you even though they don´t even know you in person. Please don´t let some jerks do you any harm or start to doubt yourself.
    I am excited about the upcoming changes you´re planning. Change is good:) Good luck with everything you´re doing :)

    I just can’t believe how much time I am wasting reading other people’s comments so, after watching Z’s video and doing my workout this morning I have decided that I’m not going to waste any more time. F and Z are entitled to make decisions about their personal lives. the should not lose their income and their marriage at the same time. I will look forward to Jess’s videos and if they don’t work for me (I am going to keep an open mind) then I will pick from the 100′s of workouts in the archive. I will pray for Z and F’s individual happiness and growth. I will not read or post another comment on the matter. Blessings on Z & F for all you have done for me. thanks.

    Guys,
    even though everything has been already said and there won’t be anything new I can give you two with my words, I feel that I have to, as a Bodyrocker, express my support. 

    You are going through tough times but only you two know what is going to work best for you so whatever you decide you need to do, I’ll stand by you. I’m not looking at this situation as something sad, I’d rather see it as a beginning of something new and exciting. You have changed my life and I am truly grateful for this. You will always have me on your side, Bodyrocker’s side. 

    Much love, xoxo.

  • Vivi

    Zuzka it’ so “hard” to see you so sad…even if you separate in good accept, you are affected by this new wway of your life…alone…but with all your Bodyrockers ! A real Bodyrocker can’t give up just because of changes !! To see you to talk to us it’s easy to undersatnd that all these changes are important for you, for the site for your life. Ready to follow Jess for workout and you for recipe or coffee talk ;)
    We don’t hav to be afraid but excited by the new way ! EVOLUTION is important too.

    I’m very touched by you, with this video. I hope you’re better and find again your so lovely smile <3
    And like others Bodyrockers noticed….eat a little more ! Even if I would love to have this six pack, you feel too much touch in your body.(Hope you understand what I would like to say)

    We still love you, and Freddy for all you did, do and will do for our community !
    Much love to both <3 ;)

  • GoustiFruit

    I’ve been following you for one year now, and during this year I saw all the energy you put into this site, publishing videos almost daily, traveling, moving, sharing so much of your life with us… I understand that after 600+ videos I think (?) you need to have a break, find a new motivation, have new projects, or just do something different. Also, with the site developing so fast lately, so many followers, so many addicted people visiting daily hoping for new content, the pressure on your shoulders must be enormous, I can’t imagine what it’s like to animate such a huge community, and how it must be time and life consuming: each and every moment of your day you probably have this in your mind. I don’t know what influence it had on your private life, but certainly it had, to some extent probably positive, but also negative.
    So I understand the need for change, the need to take one step back, the need to to get out of it and see things from a wider angle, the need to do things for yourself first. The both of you are so kind and so positive, I’m sure that whatever path you choose from now, everything will be ok.

  • Vala

    Hey Zuz,

    so, I decided not to cling to the past and just have faith in you both.

    I rather want to make it easy, so here are some suggestions for your coffetalk-videos :) :
    - a video about skincare (you promised :p )
    - your favourite books to read (the ones that changed you the most)
    - where to buy the best jeans and how to figure out the best form (I cannot wear skinny for example, it looks ridiculous on me)
    - how to not be angry about the past, how to let go and move on
    - how to become more genuine and serene
    - I’d love to see a czech dish! Maybe even some from your mother :)

    I will write more when I can think of more :)

    Sad to hear that some people have been so negativ to this changes. I realy belive in that anything that happens, happens  for a reason and in my expierince it has allways led to something WONDERFULL even if it might not seem that way first. And changes is a big part of life  and you can either ambrace it or fight it but it still happening! You both have been there for us Bodyrockers in hard times and good times, THANK YOU, and that is what family is, and as a member of this community/family, I’m here for you and so does many of us Bodyrockers.
    You said it yoursels meny times that there is and allways will be some negative people that will try to bring you down. 
    Please ignore them! Only you two know what is best for you. And we’ll support you no matter what!
    I 100% support the idea with new hosts… It’s time to see others in pain :) after workouts and not only Zuz, haha, oh I’m so meen some times. 

    Keep on rocking!!!  
    P.S. Bodyrockers have a great week rocking and don’t forget to smile event if you’r in pain! :) ))

    It takes a lot of courage to manage such a “separation”. You seem to have put a lot of thoughts a lot of time into it and I am sure you will both grow so much with this new experience of life.
    This site will only win and I look forward to seeing your changes and your new life.
    Take care, we love you both!

  • Zouzou_polpapitchou

    BodyRockers, I also want to add that we should not behave like this is a soap opera: we should show Freddy and Zuzana that the BodyRock concept has had a great impact on our lives, and we are like the BodyRock “army”, ready to continue fighting next to them and keep promoting whatever the BodyRock community is going to become. Let’s not be afraid of change. And let’s trust them.

  • Busy Mom

    One question Zuzana , will you go back to Canada after this avalanche of feelings?? so, keep doing this great job is amazing! And bring with you good memories and the other feelings leave these on the past.Think it is just one more phase of your life and no problem, no matter what happend it will healby the time. Believe me something very good is waiting for both. Freddy i say these things for you too. One thing, i couldn´t sleep this night thinking…… Very luck for you guys!!! Take a deep breath and think :yes , i can!!! And Smile, sometimes it helps!! Have a good day!!!

  • Zouzou_polpapitchou

    I just can’t believe some people in the BR community thought Freddy wanted to get rid of Zuzana???????? I mean really, who do they think Freddy and Zuzana are? I see them, like two mature talented people who have new ideas and are evolving in parallel to the BodyRock concept. They have projects of their own, they need changes too, if the couple also evolved in something else. And excuse me guys, but they are being so amazingly honest with us! So let’s support them 100% and understand that Body Rock is about EVOLUTION, like the workouts make us evolve physically and mentally. People who can’t bear changes can always quit. Why start in the first place? BodyRock means you change your life for the better. I stay! I want to see where this is going. Freddy and Zuzana I am sure the main BR community is already behind you!!

    Hey, Zuzka! I might be mistaking, but I felt like you were struggling to make this video – not because of you holding your iPhone, but because how you sounded. I can see that it’s difficult for you (both) and if you need bodyrockers’ support, I give you mine. But I think that the best possible thing you can do for this site is that you are truly happy and satisfied in life. Everything else comes by itself. I hope to see you both smiling and with sparkling eyes. Love, M :)

    Hi Zuzka,

    I think you’re a very creative talented cook and I have liked all the recipes you have made and that I’ve tried out so of course I would like more and to help in way I can.

    You need to let negative comments flow by you like fast water neither good or bad just part of nature of the human condition.  It’s obvious to myself and any other thinking person neither of you are to blame for your separation and if it could have worked otherwise you two would have stayed together. 

    I look forward to what you will do Zuzka and you need to know that you don’t need to ask for our support as it will always be there like the stone of a foundation.

    I have a favor to ask everyone.  I just talked via Skype with a close friend who’s mother is in the hospital in Taiwan and is very ill,  please do a burpee or pray for Mei Ling’s mother!  She need some serious positive energy right now!

I’m a new person and have grown comfortable in my own skin. I am going for the things that I want now and not holding back and it starts with positive thinking, which you guys have played a huge part in helping me find. I am super excited to see the new workouts and can’t wait to try the recipes. Yum!

    And to those who don’t support Zuzana and Freddy’s decisions in term of their relationship and the site, What the hell do you know? Do you think there’s anybody in the world who’s thought more about whats right for the site and for themselves? If you’ve been watching Zuzana and Freddy, you’ve come to know them as thoughtful, kind, caring, and intelligent people. Trust them, if these changes don’t work, they’ll be the first to know.

    New week, new life ! let’s smile and bring  some sunshine here, like these two people have for the past few years. Enough with the sorry’s and sadness, it doesn’t help much.

    One thing I want to share: “love is not a feeling, it is an action”. This completely changed my relationship with my boyfriend. I first thought that you could fall out of love as easily as you could fall in love. I thought it was something that you could not control. I was thinking something like “oh well, love is a feeling, I can not control if I love you or not, so let’s see what fate will bring to me/us”. Now I realize that love is something that you build and have control over.
    Anyways it completely changed how I saw my relationship with my boyfriend. I am not judging here at all, I just hope it will help you too in your relationships with your loved ones too ;)

      I agree with Claire.   What I am about to type sounds dramatic, & I am not a dramatic person.  Years ago, following a breakup with my then boyfriend of 5+ years (now husband), friends recommended two things to me.  I laughed at their suggestions, but kept an open mind.

      One told me to read “The Five Love Languages” by Chapman (there’s a version for single people & one for married people).

      Another told me to visit this website : http://www.lightyourfire.com/

      The lessons I learned have changed all of my relationships in some way, & consequently my life, for the better.  You two have changed my life also, so I just wanted to share something with you.

      I wish you the best in everything!

    Thanks Suzana, that makes a lot of sense and helps me feel more posistive about the changes to come. I’m excited for you. There are no sides to pick here, there are just some changes.

    It’s a bit ironic, you’ve asked us to embrace change, move forward …, and here you are asking us again to support change on one of the biggest things you guys have done. We need to support you two the way you’ve supported us for all these years. I guess it feels scarey for some of us, we must have abandonment issues ;-p

    Thank you so much for this quick update and reassurance. Every little bit helps. However, my darling Zuska, please get yourself a web cam LOL (it looks painful watching you hold your iPhone out like that)

    Mmwhah Hugs and kisses to both of you.

    I hope focusing on the recipes bring you lots of happiness Zuzana.  I know I have trouble myself finding creative ways to keep healthy food interesting.  I think its a great way to take bodyrock for yourself.  I`m sure the opportunity for people to get to be a host is really exciting too and will help to push us to the next level. 
    Freddy I hope you are able to keep up doing what you feel assassinate about as well.I think its great you are both still working with bodyrock and here for all of us who have become so attached to your wonderful attitudes and creativity.  I wish you both the best of luck and enjoy the new avenues life has presented.

    Keep on Rocking!

    change is inevitable.  if we don’t change, we become stagnant.  i think the reason we all started bodyrockin’ is because we wanted change.  we wanted to change our sedentary lifestyles that were killing us and become more active.  well, now is the time for u and freddy to change.  i don’t think people should have selfish intentions.  that’s not what this site is about.  u and freddy have given everything of yourselves and deserve much happiness.  i hope u two find it.  whether it be together or individually is up to u guys.  not us.  so, as i said earlier, change is inevitable.  it’s what u make of the change that determines what kind of change it will be.

    Zuzana deserves to live her life the way she chooses. I’m happy she didnt up and say oh well bodyrock.tv is over. She is a human like all of us. Just imagine all the time she puts into planning, doing and shooting, posting and reviewing comments for all the workouts.. whew!

  • http://www.twitter.com/NightShayde Hazel

    Z, seeing you sounding so down in this video makes me feel so helpless. I wish I could cheer you up somehow. But you’re right about wanting to try new things and you’ve got us true Bodyrockers behind you all the way. <3

  • Jo Anne

    I was tearing up while watching the last two coffee talks and posts. I feel sad about what has happened but you, guys, know what is best for the both of you.

  • Lydzies

    awesome!!

  • Ricarda33

    I fully stand behind you both, no matter what decisions you will make.
    But I have to admit I kind of can’t get over you both splitting since you are very bonded and sharing and do care deeply for each other. I really think you both belong together and wish that someday you will get back to each other. But that is totally up to you.
    Good luck with the fresh start into a new life full of opportunities.

    Sincerely,
    Ricarda.

    we love you zuzana. Even the people who make hurtful comments just love you so much and are hurt you’re leaving because they’ll miss you. but we’ll love you no matter what and all we hope is that sometimes we can still hear from you and have you in our lives in some form or fashion. do what’s best for you in the end- it’s your life. and you can’t put others before yourself all the time.

    Zuz…Hope things are getting easier. We will always be here for you, no matter what. You’ve done so much for us, and have devoted so much of your time to better our lives. It’s our responsibility to now support you in times of change. I’ve always been inspired by you, and Freddy, and that will never change– no matter how dynamic BodyRock becomes. Much Love and Respect your way.
    Yours Truly,

    Of course we support you in anything you do.. you just look so unhappy :( right now. I hope you are really ok.

    Thanks for the ADELE video… it is awesome, I have been introduced to so many new songs and recipes and workouts because of you, and I deeply appreciate it all. I just don’t want it to be at the expense of your happiness. I will continue with your old routines until you get things worked out.
    I hope you know, you still have the love of this community.

    Hi Zuzana & Freddy, Both of you will still be my inspiration and no matter what I will always be in your support no matter what you choose or do in your life.  I received the news just one day after I officialy done my first bodyrock work out….it was devastating but I truly understand. Life is full of suprises that is….So I wish both of you all the best good luck in all your undertakings but I just have one request…please promise you guys will always be with bodyrock.tv…ehhehheeh…..this is the first time in my life after 30 years that I am serious about working out,living live to the fullest…I received such a powerful,pure and positive vibes from both of you. Thank Zuzana and Freddy you are still the best….Love you guys always!

  • Sunchic2006

    We all love you both it was just a shock….I wish you both the very best and I could tell from Zuz’s voice today how much this really is hurting you…you seem so sad I just want to bear hug you!! :) I don’t understand anyone who would say bad things about either one of you…you are 2 AMAZING people!

  • Apple

    Like this post if you are doing burpees in solidarity for Zuzka, Freddy, Jess, and all other members of the bodyrock FAMILY!!!  I think Zuzka, Freddy, and Jess could especially use the extra support, encouragement, and love right now….  Spread the love and show your thanks and support.  We need to stick together for them, for us, for the pursuit of the bodyrock philosophy and a healthy lifestyle!!!  BURPEES FOR BODYROCK!!!

  • Tina

    Always behind you both with support! Wherever you take us, I’m following. I am happy for you as long as you both are happy. Thank you for considering us family and being so honest, it takes so much strength to put your personal life out there for us. Thank you. Zuzka & Freddy, best wishes from the bottom of my heart. Can’t wait to see what’s coming. Sending positive thoughts and love your way always.

  • Nai

    Oh yeah and big hugs too xxxx

  • Nai

    Thank you both for your openess and honesty, You really know how to connect with each and every one of us, for that I am sincerley grateful and respectful, as Im sure are many others! One of the many reasons you have so many followers.
    It really sadens me that there are still people out there that are negative and actively seek out the bad in situations instead of recognising the good. I do believe in freedom of speech but at what cost? Why say something that you know is going to hurt someone else?  how this can make these people feel good in themselves….. as my parents always taught me…rise above it!
    I was bullied at school and then it was so so hard, I couldnt see how my life would get better and would go to bed sobbing my heart out. If only I knew then what I know now!
    Its really important to keep real and not let others comments bring you down. Keep your head held high.

    I loev this site more than any other social networing site as it brings together like minded folk. There will always be that minority that have negative attitudes but together we can remain strong…like you’ve said we are a family, but with a difference…we actually chose each other! Thatas gotta be better right? :)

    Much love to you Zuzana and Freddy
    Much love to Erin and of course 1 burpee
    MUch love to all the Bodyrockers

    Wow zuzana,  I started crying while you talked because you seem so sad! 

     I will support you in anything you wish to do.  We can see in you the sadness, the weight loss,  so it’s not surprising that people might get down on freddy,  he’s not in front of the camera,  and since the largest percentage of people here are female, maybe it’s easy to blame the guy.  sad, but human nature.

    I personally try very hard not to judge people,  it can be hard sometimes but I try very hard,  and I also try to follow the adage that my mother taught me when I was very little – if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. (I always see thumper in bambi saying it!)   sometimes when people write, they say things that they probably wouldn’t say if it were in person.  I don’t now why that is,  they don’t always censor themselves.  I find it really sad.  If you wouldn’t say it to their face then you shouldn’t say it behind their back or in writing.

    anyway, take care of yourself,  make sure you are eating properly even if you don’t feel like it!  sorry, I’m a mom!  ha ha!

    would love it if you got a little video camera and filmed yourself making the recipes!  love that!

  • Cindy

    Zuzana, You are a great person and your life will be full of blessings for your honesty and kindness. I only feel so much gratitude for you and Freddy that if I have the opportunity to meet you “I WANT SAY THANK YOU SO MUCH” . I will follow you in your new journey because I consider myself a bodyrocker for life.

What you two do is AMAZING and I want to give you both a big THANK YOU for all the dedication and time you have spent on Body Rock TV. I only have positive things to say about Body Rock and will continue to do so as it could only get better! I think the your true Body Rockers will be here for you both no matter what. I will keep you both in my prayers.

    Zuzana.. I have so much respect for you and Freddy. Thank you so much for speaking out and letting us know what’s going on.. I’m so glad that you and Freddy have been able to go forward in a loving friendship and partnership.. I agree 100% that it is better to have a smaller community of positive supportive people than  a huge community of disrespectful, non supportive  people.. and those who aren’t supportive will not stick with you guys through these changes. Change is hard enough as it is and right now we, bodyrockers need to stick together and be supportive to you and Freddy and also Jess, the new host.. I can’t wait to see her doing the workouts. I trust your guys judgment that she will do a great job! I feel really blessed that I found you guys almost a yr ago now and I feel even more blessed to be allowed to continue this journey with you guys! I’m excited for all the changes that are coming soon. I’m also really excited to have more recipes ( I love to cook) and more coffee talks from you!
    I do hope you are feeling all the love and support I know this AWESOME community is sending you and Freddy.. in thoughts, prayers, good vibes and good energy!!
    I admire you greatly! :)
    Ciao Bella!!

    Change is good. But sometimes it hurts and it takes time to accept changes. Changes are frightening and it takes courage to take the next step. you are a courageous woman zuzana. hopefully we are courageous bodyrocker, too!
    it hurts to see you looking so sad. but in the end of the video there was the zuzana smile! keep on smiling! i wish you good luck, to the both of you!

      PS – I helped the hubby lift a snowblower into and out of our truck today and the whole time I kept saying, “FUNCTIONAL STRENGTH, Danni, COME on! Imma make Zuzana proud!” And then, “UUUUGGGHHH!” I lifted that thing into next Tuesday. Booya!  

      Did I mention I was wearing four inch heels? HAHA! See? Making Zuzana proud.  She’d be all over these shoes  :)

    Personally, I’m not a community type. I come here to see you– not other body rockers (no offense intended! hear me out). I barely touch the bodyrocker section of the site. I watch your videos. I don’t have much concern for what others are doing, i really don’t like the idea. I mean, we are all strangers– just because we interact on the internet doesn’t mean i want to know other people’s personal problems and such. I don’t come here for the bodyrockers, I come here for Zuzana because I like what she says and does. When i first came to bodyrock the site layout was based on whatever Zuzana posted. Then came this new layout, and it isn’t bad, but you have all these posts of strangers, granted Zuzana is a stranger, too, but she’s a stranger im interested in which is why i come back to this site. It gets way too personal with other people.
    Some people like the idea of support from people you don’t know, but there are sites like sparkpeople that do that.
    I liked bodyrock because it was focused on one person who inspired me, with no forums. I loved it. 
    Now it’s going to be a site that focuses on a whole bunch of people I don’t know.
    Some of you are going to lash out at me, I can feel it.
    But no matter– you can try to convince me all you want that interacting with people of “similar interests” is good for me. I’m still not going to like it. I wonder if I am the only bodyrocker who feels this way.

    I’m only telling what I feel about it. The decision is made though, regardless of my opinion.
    I don’t like social networking in general. 

    • BrittanyBRock

      Sadly enough, I do feel the same way. I was just sitting here thinking about what to say. I agree with you, in that I also come to the sight for Zuz and her workouts BUT i think it is beyond important for her to do what makes her HAPPY. If that means cooking and staying out of the bodyrock spotlight, i support it. Also, Im not much into the social aspect of the site but there are SO many workouts that I know we can all keep bodyrocking through this change. I have faith that Z&F will always do what’s best for the site and at the core of that is what we all TRULY came here for in the first place… ass-kicking workouts. I hate to hear the sadness in such an inspiring, beautiful person’s voice in this video. Life is all about change. Zuzana- i cant stress enough how thankful i am. We ALL are. You have to take care of yourself (Freddy, you too!!) I will continue to visit the site and think of myself as a bodyrocker for life. i hope neither of you lose your love for one another, no matter what that love evolves into. 

      Looking forward to the new workouts. hopefully they are BRUTAL as ever :)  

      Much Love.

      hi harmony! 
       I do understand how you feel, but you are jumping the gun a bit as zuzana is still here on many, many videos.  so if you decide that you don’t like the new host’s videos  then don’t watch them, but you can still follow zuzana’s videos, they are still there!  you never know, you might admire someone new as well,  you won’t know until you try!

      You are not alone, I am not into social networking either, I dont have a facebook or twitter or anything else.  But I get that thats maybe where the money lies and I cant blame Z & F for tagging onto the band waggon, esspecially when others seem to want it too.  I will be checking in on the site regularally but I mostly keep track of it on my google reader and I can pick which posts I read and which I dont.  I have to admit Im not such a huge fan of the website layout and I dont know if its all the picutres or what but it loads VERY slowly on my pc but in google reader it loads just fine.  Something to think about……

    Thanks Zuz, I feel a little better.  I guess I am just scared that I won’t see as much of the person who I look up to so much.  But from the sound of it maybe we will get to see and hear from you even more:)  I am sending good wishes to you and strength because you deserve it with all the support and strength you have given us.

    Yes it was a shock for me to hear you both are seperating, but as long as you are happy with it, it’s the best thing to do.
    Maybe some people are just scared cause this change may seem a little unoriented to us, since we don’t know where the journey of bodyrock will go. But I’m 100% sure and positive that I will like it. So I’m really excited how this site might change and I’m looking forward to it :)

    all the best to Freddy and you, Zuz! xoxo

  • Katie

    Hey Zuzka,

    Hope you are doing well, I certainly didn’t mean to offend you or Freddy.  I was just trying to give an honest opinion and share my concern for you.  Just because I didn’t give a cookie cutter answer like “everything will be ok love you guys” doesn’t mean I don’t.  I was trying to give a real honest opinion. Many people here are quite young and may not have experienced divorce, many have.  I think I was fair.  I know it is a hard time for you both, and I hope you both come through it happily.  Not everyone here will have the same opinion and I know you said you would rather have a small groups of positive people, than a large group of disrespectful ones, but I hope there is room for honest opinions in there too.  It may be hard to hear an honest opinion today, but you know that when you get the positive ones from an honest person that they are real, and not just what people know you want to hear. I don’t believe I was disrespectful, but that too is a matter of opinion and I hope you have room in your heart to see my point of view and forgive it if it isn’t what you prefer to hear. I really think that you guys are great and positive, but I am not naive, and I know things don’t always turn out the way we envision them.  Still you are both great, and I wish you only the best, you are both quite brave for coming out in public with your story.  I have been a loyal follower and promoter of your site for a year and a half now and feel like my opinion is valid and worth hearing. Thanks for the update. All the best.

    To reach the body that Zuzka has, you have to pay attention to your diet, 60% is the diet and the rest the workouts, I am so excited to see what Zuzi eats hehehe.
    I tend to be very dumb when food comes around I eat clean but my creativity is not very wide, with Zuz as an example I can make my recipe book and be happy and get leaner, yes!!!!!

    I have read some of the disrespectful comments and am appauled that people would be so heartless. People think that because you are an internet personality that you are not a real person with feelings. They are jealous, crude, people that do not deserve to be a part of our bodyrock family. Anybody who would say hurtful things to you or Freddy should be blocked. I am sorry to hear that these people are even taking the time to hurt your feelings. I think that if you know what you have decided is the right thing, then we have to support you. After all, you guys have been supporting us through our journies of self improvement and change through bodyrocking. It is now our responsibility to be there for you during yours. I am happy for you that you know what direction you want to take and I think that it’s a wonderful opportunity to involve other bodyrockers in the videos. I know I would jump at the chance to do a video. I am just looking forward to hearing your coffee talks and trying out new recipes. Zuzka, you are fabulous. Don’t ever let anybody tell you otherwise. Your future is bright and beautiful. I am honoured to be a bodyrocker and am able watch you flourish! YOU ROCK!!

    Zuzana, I’m so sorry you were hurt by some comments.  You don’t need that right now.  Just know, though, that I think if people are saying those things that it ultimately comes from a good place, even if it doesn’t seem like it.  We all support and love you and just want to give the two of you a big ol’ hug.  We just want you two to be happy. 

    So…I’m excited for what’s next!

    Oh Zuza, you seem so sad! Don’t let nehative people influence how you feel, you and freddy both know in your hearts what is true and what is right, and we do too. I hope that the positive people in this community help you and Freddy get through this.

    I’m looking forward to the changes on the site and are happy to see that you will be both be around.

    However, even if Bodyrock ended tomorrow (which it better not!) the tools you guys have taught me will last me my whole life. You guys are the instigators – you show us the tools and it’s up to us to run with them. And I can never thank you enough for everything you have done for me! For the first time in my life I am fit and healthy and I don’t know if it would ahve happened if I had never found Bodyrock.

    Zuzana, i send youmy warmest regards and I pray that you and Freddy have strength through these tough times. I really love body.rock and you have inspired and help me to get into great shape and I reallylove you guys for that. Don’t listen to mean people in the world, they are lost and probblysuffering and have to somehow hurt others. So listen to all the people who appreciate and love you, and remember that when you do things with love, things turn out wonderful. Love and blessings to you two. Ana. By the way, I started body rocking in March of this year, eating healthy and I havegonedown 12 kilos. I am a mom of two precious boys, living without my husband for now ( long story but believe me when I tell you that working out with you has kept me sane in this time apart). I am almost 44 but I look and feel max 28 and i love the compliments about my body ; ) and I am working hard on my six-pack for next summer ; ) cheers for you two, and I proper we all do two extra burpees in your names!

It’s not, it’s your life and those of us that support you will continue to support every decision you make. I hope things between you and Freddy remain comfortable and you guys maintain the friendship you both have for each other. Take your break, live your life the way YOU want to, you don’t owe us anything. We actually owe you so much for doing all of this for us without asking for anything but to be the best body rockers we can be.

    In all honesty, I’m glad we’re going to be having others body rock. It’ll give more encouragement because we all see you as some superwoman! Haha, now someone “ordinary” will do the workouts and it’ll pump us up even more watching one of the followers doing it!

    I love you guys so much for creating this website, you’ve given me so much encouragement and I’ve changed completely since meeting you. I want you both to be happy, so please….do whatever you need to do to continue that.

    Thank you Zuzka for posting this. I think it’s actually going to be really interesting seeing our new host and how she does, while having you updating us with coffee talks, recipes and whatever else you decide to do in your life. I’m sure you both have to offer much more than just your workouts, so that is something to look forward too. It’s great that you’ve decided to go on with this because Bodyrockers DO NOT QUIT! ;)

  • Maria Sweden

    I liked today’s coffee talk and am looking forward to the receipes. I’m on a constant hunt for new recepies because I am trying to learn how to cook. Lol.
    I hope that people will keep making this community what it has always been. Last couple of days I’ve felt sad reading some of the comments but also proud because most of the comments have been in true bodyrocking spirit – supportive, kind and positiv. Zuzana and Freddy you have changed my life- bodyrock has made me more confident in myself and I finally found the support I need to stay consistent with my workout.

    Thank you. =)
    Hugs!

  • Sara

    I’m really looking forward to those recipes, Zuzka! :) Change can be scary sometimes, but I’m looking forward to all the new things. We support you both!

    Also, your teeth look so beautiful and white in this video! Do you whiten your teeth? I’m just curious. :)

    We love you Zuzana! It takes a lot of courage to stand in front of the community and explain your personal life. Please don’t listen to the negative comments, because you and Freddy need to do what is best for both of you… and the true bodyrockers will respect and support that.
    Thank you for being positive and always looking out for the bodyrock community. All of these changes are a little scary, but also exciting. Good luck with all your new adventures, we can’t wait to hear about them!

  • Circusboy06

    I’m sorry to hear this. You two seem so happy. Not to long I separated from my girlfriend and sometimes it is really hard. Life brought to a new adventure for both of us. Thank you for sharing all workouts. I love you both. xx

    Can you tell people are watching the site for updates on the clock ?! :) )

    Zuzana, change is good, no doubt. I am really excited to see the new website format and the new hosts and the recipes and your coffee talks. BUT I would still like very much to see you in some workout videos.

    Freddy , you’re a great guy and very talented too, you’ve proved  it all these years. Whoever would think otherwise, maybe wasn’t around long enough. 

    Zuzana you’re a great athlete and a great model to follow and this is why I will miss your presence in the videos. The future hosts will be just as inspiring I am sure. I understand your wish of evolving, of “being more” , of “doing more”, of learning more. It’s part of our “growing” as spiritual beings. 

    I am your supporter and a true fan ! Of the whole bodyrocking movement and of you as individual beings.
     
    Keep rocking !

  • Sabrina

    I love you Zuzana. I must admit that when I first read the post my big concern was who got charlie and cale! ;) I trust you guys are doing the right thing for you and I say Congratulation on facing new challenges.

    Wishing you both the very best on your new paths – you guys have been awesome and I love this site and will continue to support it no matter what direction it takes.  I can’t imagine how difficult that must have been for both of you to open your hearts the way you have.  It’s hard enough breaking up, but having to ‘explain’ it publicly is just horrible.  How incredibly brave you’ve both been.  Take care and keep positive (and BodyRocking of course!). Lots of love xoxo 

  • Liliya

    I love you Zuzana, admire and appreciate every single thing that you and Freddy do for us here. 
    And even though I really wish I could still see you doing your fabulous workouts, it’s more important for me that you are happy, and if not doing the workout videos makes you happy, that I think we will be fine :)
    And don’t even pay attention to ridiculous and mean things that some people may say..jealousy was never a good trait to cultivate plus we all know here that you and Freddy are amazing people and deeply love each other, even if just like friends :)
    Sending Love and Sunshine’s Light burpee to you!! ^.^

    Honestly, I just want to know that you’re doing things for yourself too!
    Take your time and take care of you! I believe you when you say you’re
    not leaving, and that you have big plans. You’ve never let us down in
    the past. We’re so happy to have you and this community, and feel your
    selfless support for us. We will all understand and be here, so please,
    do what YOU need to do for yourself :) We love you.

  • Maria G.

    At first I was a bit sceptical, but now I’m excited to see the changes to the site. I can’t wait to try your recipies Zuzana, and to see the new workouts with Jess. Change can be good, but scary. I wish you and Freddy the best, and will be here and training with you :)

  • midimidi

    OH I am so happy that you posted this!  I think people forget that as much as they love bodyrockers you and freddy love it more that anyone else here…it’s your life and why would you not do what is best for it?  I am grateful grateful grateful for the FREE site, the planned exercises and the community that motivates me to push myself.  That will never change!

  • Kiki

    Oh, but we’re not going anywhere! I’m pretttty sure that as long as you’re here, we’re all here.

  • Kalin

    Much respect to you, Zuzka!

    You are a beautiful spirit with a strong sense of resolve. I hope you will continue to be as kind to yourself as you have been to us. Please know that you have my unwavering support, as well as that of thousands of other dedicated Bodyrockers!

    Of course it’s the selfish part of me that is sad to hear that you will not be doing more workout videos, but since this was your decision, I fully support it, and wish you many fabulous travels and new recipes!! And I’m thrilled that you’ll still keep coffee talking with us :) It’s just hard for people to let you go, because you’re kind of like a gorgeous unicorn :) Once people are lucky enough to experience your multifaceted beauty, it’s so rare that people can’t fathom parting with it. But all you’re telling us is that you’ll still be here – just in a different capacity – and I think that’s something for which we should all be grateful. We love you!

    • Laura

      I agree with Kalin, 100%. Initially I was afraid of the changes, but now understand them better after the coffee talk.

  • Freddy

    Thanks for your support guys. We both really feel strongly that the best is yet to come. We have been doing this as a team from the get go and nothing about that is going to change :)

    • KIMBERLAKE93

      Thanks Zuz for your video!!  I feel so selfish that we’re all wanting to hear more and more and more of what’s going on between you and Freddy.  But it’s only because of our luv for you’s and how much we’ve grown to admire and respect you both.  This stuff is NONE of our business yet you’ve shared it with us while going through a huge adjustment phase…..thank you.  I’m sending all my luv/support/strength to you and Freddy during this difficult time.  Keep busy with the site and what makes you happy.  Stay active and don’t worry about us or our comments anymore at all.  We, as usual, will continue to follow you guys and BODY ROCK daily!  What an amazing community/family you’ve created here.  We shouldn’t be saying anything but never ending THANK YOU’s……
      Lets all put more of our energy into doing an extra BURPEE for Z & F instead of focusing on their personal life so much.  It makes me sad also but if they’re okay with it, we NEED to be!!  lol
      All My Luv & Support guys!!  Looking forward to the next new workout!!
      CHEERS!  xoxo  :)

    • Lydia

      Not really sure why anyone would post coments that were rude, or un-necessary…BUT as we bodyrockers know sadly those people don’t come from a place of good, and we have NOOOO room for them here! so scram…as zuzana said (and good for you) she will not be hosting the work outs, she will still be doing other things with the site…sometimes people need to step away and work behind the scenes- NOTHING wrong with that…I support you girl and freddy…just way to grateful for ALLLLL y’all have done and continue to do not to be 150% supportive! xo

    • monika

      Do what’s best for you and you only!Don’t worry about anything else.I am excited for new recipes and I’m looking forward to more travel and life videos.Your travel and cofee talk always put smile on my face,we made a thing in our house whenever you uploaded new travel video me and my hubby would watch it before going to bed and it made me feel closer to home(Europe) when I’m all the way on west coast of Canada.

      Freddy and Zuz we are supporting you guys, just they way you have supported us and helped us change our lives. You both are amazing people. Bodyrock.tv will go to the next level. We are still the Bodyrock family! And Jess is welcome she’s a member of our family. Zuz can’t wait for your recipes and all the good stuff you are working on. Don’t let negative people hurt you…I know it hurts but you have a whole Bodyrock family behind you no matter what. xxx

    • ZoeRocker

      In case some of you missed my comment on the other post, I left it here also.

      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’s like 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 we have 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 favourite vegetable:) You can try and eat mac and cheese for awhile but it is so limited. The possibilities with veggies are endless!

  • Mary__s

    We love you so much! You are the best!

  • Lborden09

    I think what you are doing is amazing!! =) Don’t worry about what other people say! some people just like being downers! I can not wait to see some of your recipes! 

  • Isi

    I wish you all the best….good thoughts……a positive mind…….hope and ambitious goals for the your future……any step you’ll take will be the right,that’s for sure…….and never forget:the journey is its own reward!!!Good luck and LET TH SUN SHINE IN!:-))))

    Awww will miss you from the videos.   Now is a good time to go blonde once again- it will cheer you up!  And blonde suits you really really really very much- Do It!!

  • Anna

    Not sure what brain and heartless comments have been posted.
    Please dont worry about them.
    Focus on the people which really mean something to you.
    And good luck with your new adventures.
    It is amazing how much you create!
    Thank you.

    I second that Zuzka, Change is Good.. Look forward to what is to come.
    Whatever happens, we are bodyrockers for lfie..

  • Laura Fancy

    I think people fail to realize that the both of you have been discussing/figuring things out for months now. This wasn’t anything rash and I think it’s very admirable of the both of you to be thinking so much of this community during this time. I appreciate everything you’ve done for me, as well as anyone else who follows this site. As saddened as I am by the news, I look forward to the changes and how this site will evolve in the future. Sometimes change is necessary to better ourselves, and we can look back on our experiences and learn from them. You both will come out of this as better individuals. I say this because I recently got out of a 6 year relationship. We both still love each other deeply, but it just wasn’t working and we are much better as good friends. We still keep in touch, we remain close. I hope it works out this way for the both of you, as well. Much love to the both of you. xo

    Greetings from Bulgaria! 

  • BodyRockerFrancesca

    Wow!  I just can’t imagine how hard this must be for both you – it takes a lot of courage to be so public and candid about your personal lives.  It sounds like you will get through this, and that you are both committed to keeping Bodyrock going.  I wish you the best, and I hope to enjoy some of Zuzana’s yummy recipes in the very near future.

    Just do your best to stay positive and to hold on to the great spirit that made all of us flock to you in the first place – you ROCK!

  • Pavlina

    It’s all well and good but please update us on Charlie and Cali :)

    • Pavlina

      Right, I just read Charlie is Zuzi’s and Cali is Freddie’s from before they known each other so phew, dogs are fine and we’re still going to see them in the future yay :) )

      • Sabrina

        where did u read that? I actually knew that cause in a video from a long long time ago Zuzana said that Charlie only spoke czech but I was worried about who had who as well!

        • Pavlina

          Zuzi replied to someone else here who asked the same thing:

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

    I was so saddened to hear that you guys were separating but it sounds to me that you both know what you want and you both know what’s going to make you happy. I wish you both the best! You two have inspired me so much and I can’t imagine not being a part of this community!
    And Zuzana, you looked so sad in the video :( Seriously…it brought tears to my eyes 

    Love you both!

  • Kellsibob

    Zuzana there are more lovers than haters. We are thankful for everything you guys have done. It is hard enough going through a break up let alone doing it in front of so many people. Stay strong and focused on your new adventures. You have so much support from all of us body-rockers. Much Love from the UK x

  • Anonymous

    Thanks Zuzka,

    I think we are all in a bit of shock over the news and people react differently.  But most of the comments have been supportive of both of you.  As Alana said, you seem sad on todays talk, please don’t focus on the negative.

    Looking forward to the new recipes, I have a few that I will send through to see what you think :)

    Keep bodyrocking :)

  • Flo

    I think its wonderful what you are doing and I would hope that everyone appreciates the fact that you guys take so much time out of your own lives to share your knowledge.  I think having others demonstrate the workouts is a great idea because it brings the workouts into closer relation to the average person (you are SO fit!!).
