Last night, New York City’s celebrity wellness community came out for the opening party of Tracy Anderson’s new flagship studio on 239 E. 59th St.
The Anderson-Gwyneth Paltrow collab is housed inside a former movie theatre — the marquee outside displays the name of the studio and info on class scheduling — and at 6,000-square-feet, it’s the biggest Anderson studio yet.
Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner made an appearance, while Gwyneth Paltrow FaceTimed in on Dunham’s iPhone (really). Celebrity chef Alex Guarnaschelli, model Hilary Rhoda and Tracy Anderson CEO Maria Baum were also in attendance. Model/DJ/entrepreneur Hannah Bronfman spun tunes in a dance cardio studio on the ground floor.
Membership to the studio runs you $900/month, plus a $1500 initiation fee. If that’s too steep for you, you can still partake in Paltrow’s 3 Green Hearts Cafe, which is set to open its second location adjacent to the studio. Its organic prepared meals will be available for pickup and delivery for members and non-members alike, so you can enjoy your fish tacos or gluten-free pasta at home — after a sweat session with your Tracy Anderson DVD, of course.
