What is the role of a BIMGA?

The Body Image Movement Global Ambassador Program (BIMGAP) was born in response to a passionate demand from the Body Image Movement (BIM) community to become active participants in the fight against global body dissatisfaction. An ambassador’s role is to help us do just that – help fight against global body dissatisfaction by spreading body positivity within their local community.

Our ambassadors are positive role models to those around them, taking accountability of the language they use in relation to their bodies which in turn, inspires others to do the same. While the advocacy our ambassadors undertake is as individual as they are, from sharing branded content on social media to hosting body positive events, all of our ambassadors strive to achieve the same passionate goal – to put an end to the global body dissatisfaction epidemic.

Can Taryn respond to my questions for a school or university assignment?

Unfortunately, Taryn isn’t able to assist you personally with your questions, but you are welcome to use our website and reference it for research purposes. You may find our blog stories particularly helpful.

Does the Body Image Movement and embracing your body promote obesity?

Short answer… NO! If you want to know more tune in here.

How can I share my story on your blog?

If you’re a legendary member of our community and you’d like to share your journey to embracing, please submit your story along with a photo to us via our community blog page. We will review your story (please be patient we’re a tiny team) and if it’s suitable (no business promotions please) we’ll share it with our community.

What age is Embrace You suitable for?

Embrace You has been developed for adults. We recommend that parents or guardians complete the program prior to or alongside a minor so you can guide them through any challenging content. Many mothers and carers have taken their children through the program with great success.

IT WORKS! Embrace You has a 98% satisfaction rate and 94% love their body more after completing the program.

IT’S FUN! Yes, we go deep in Embrace You but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a laugh or three along the way.

IT’S FLEXIBLE! We understand that life can be busy, the program has been designed so you can do it in your own time, at your own pace, in your own space!

Don’t take our word for it, listen to what our fabulous embracers have to say.

Why do you charge for your products and speaking?

We’re proud of every single product and service we put out into the world because of the huge positive impact they have had on millions of people across the globe. Our community means everything to us and helping people like you is why we get out of bed in the morning. Charging a fee for our products, services and speaking events allows us to continue our relentless commitment to ending the global epidemic of body hate.

What age is Embrace the documentary suitable for?

Embrace is rated M – Recommended for mature audiences. Some content in M rated movies may not be suitable for audiences under 15 years of age. There are some themes in Embrace that parents might see as unsuitable for their children. We fully appreciate that every child is unique and what might be appropriate for one child is not appropriate for another’s level of maturity. Please see our blog on the subject for more information.

Can I use the Embrace Education Study Guide if I’m not a teacher?

Of course you can. We’ve had personal trainers, parents, guardians, dance teachers and community groups purchase the guide and used it with huge success. The content is easily adapted to suit a variety of needs and we know you’ll love it.
