Personal trainer Tracy Anderson claims she can give any woman, whatever her size, the same body as her famous clients Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow!
“It is my mission to give every woman the tools to look and feel her best,” says Tracy. “Make no mistake: getting rid of problem areas on your body truly an art. Your muscles are completely manipulative and your body is a sculpture that you can design. Just be careful who you let sculpt you!”
With years of research based on her former training as a dancer, Tracy has developed her very own unique, female approach to fitness. Her method for transforming the body is based on targeting the accessory muscles (the small muscle groups). Strengthening the accessory muscles help to create a tight knit group of small muscles that actually pull in the larger muscle groups.
Tracy has also found that muscles become bored quickly. To fight this, she always keeps the muscles guessing by routinely changing up the types of exercises and programs each client does. This results in a lean figure without the extra bulk - which gives women a tiny dancer body and men a skinny ripped body.
Her vigorous routines incorporate classic gym exercises, such as squats, star jumps and bicep curls, with very small weights.
Gwen and Madonna aren’t her only fans either. Courteney Cox, Kristin Davis and Shakira swear by Tracy’s workouts.
Actress Emily Blunt says, “It is such a fantastic work out. It targets intensely those areas we all panic about in a unique way that keeps your body and mind agile! I absolutely love it. It is so invigorating that it becomes more of a way of life than the dreaded trip to the gym!"
