Jillian Michaels Calls "Butt Selfies" Softcore Porn

December 21, 2015 2 min read

Anyone who has followed the career of Jillian Michaels knows that she isn't afraid to show off her physique or speak her mind. It is not difficult to find images of her in tight fitting clothing. As someone who works to motivate and train other people, allowing said people to see your shape is important. But, Michaels is not impressed by some recent fitness selfie trends and expresses her thoughts in the January 2016 cover story for Women's Health Magazine. She says, “I’m not into fitness professionals who post selfies that show off their butts or other body parts. Come on, that’s not fitness—it’s softcore porn." jillianmichaelscover_wh010216_news Michaels built her name. She built her career from the ground up and is protective of it. When your sole goal is to motivate people to be the best they can be, you don't want to see that cheapened. "We’ve come so far, and this is where you’re taking the movement? Put your clothes on," she says. "I get it—you love your body and bravo that—but it’s not fitness. Fitness to me is about empowering people. It’s about redefining self-image.” She's not entirely wrong, either. While looking better is often a goal people attach to their fitness plan, it cannot be the only reason. If your fitness goals only about your appearance, you are doomed to fail. No matter what our society tells us, you are not your body. If you are only able to be inspired by looking at images and saying "I want to look like that," you'll likely never be happy. [bctt tweet="Jillian Michaels Calls "Butt Selfies" Softcore Porn"] Michaels is set to show the world what her life is really like with the new E! series, Just Jillian. This show will detail her life as mother, wife and business owner. "I think people will really get to know me as a person," she says. "I have my crazy moments, of course, but I’m human just like everybody else. I love my kids, I make mistakes, I have tons of flaws. I’m kind of like Larry David, like anything ridiculous, absurd, and terrible that can happen to somebody sort of happens to me." Perhaps it is there, that she has found her success. We know she has a killer body, but we don't know her for her body. We know her as a person. Michaels' life is beyond fabulous at the moment. She is super busy and follows a strict routine that involves very little downtime but she understands the nature of these moments. "You kind of make hay while the sun is shining, and right now the sun is shining," she says. "I got two television shows, I’m on the cover of Women’s Health, all my books are best sellers. I don’t want to sound like an asshole, but this is the reality of my life and I’m only going to have this moment once and I need to capitalize on it." Are you someone inspired by Jillian Michaels? Do you think she's right about the fitness selfie trends being damaging to the industry?

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 2-3 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

BodyRock Equipment

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.

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
