Gabi Grecko Reveals Marks On Her Back As Result of Waist Training

April 07, 2015 2 min read

Gabi Grecko has been documenting her waist training efforts on her Instagram account. The Penthouse cover girl recently posted a photo that showed deep, painful red marks on her back with the statement that "Real Waist training-is not fun... Real corset training especially going down a size should look like this. There's no easy way out." gabi Through this training Grecko is looking to lose 13 centimeters from her original 53 centimeter waist. She says sculpted designs, green tea, a high fiber diet and exercising for 45 minutes each day are responsible for what Daily Mail calls her "enviable figure." Waist training, also known as 'tightlacing,' involves wearing restrictive clothing in an effort to whittle down the waist line. Grecko has admitted to wearing her corset for up to 20 hours and sometimes even sleeping in it. gabi2 I have to admit, the thought of waist training makes me terribly uncomfortable. There is no way this is a healthy thing to be doing. It can cause real damage to the rib cage and internal organs not to mention discomfort and difficulty breathing. My concern over this practice is not only over the physical harm it could be doing. I am all for each and every one of us finding a look that makes us happy. Our bodies are our vessels in life and there is no reason it cant look its best. I don't judge people who pursue plastic surgery to feel their best so why do I feel such resistance to this practice? Grecko wants to reduce her waist to 40 centimeters (15 inches). To my mind, that is beyond the scope of natural. As mentioned above, Daily Mail called her figure enviable which of course sends a message that a 15 inch waist is a reasonable target. It is anything but reasonable. Gabi Grecko is free to pursue whatever body she is after, as are each and every one of you. But I implore you, in a Mother Hen sort of way, to never lose sight of what is reasonable for your body type. Gabi Grecko Is waist training a harmful practice with far reaching health and social consequences or is it just a form of body modification that should be treated like tattooing or piercing? We'd love to hear what you think. Do you follow us on Instagram? [caption id="attachment_98338" align="alignnone" width="100"]snapchat snapcode @BodyRockTV[/caption]

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
