Tracy Anderson: Workout tips from Madonna and Gwyneth’s trainer

Tracy Anderson

One hour a day, six days a week: that’s all you need to kinda look like Gisele or J. Lo. Fitness expert Tracy Anderson’s home Metamorphosis plan makes this possible. She explains in her own words.

“You are how you move. Everyone is beautiful no matter their shape or size but when we are in proportion we are stunning. Change is possible once you identify the problem areas and focus on changing, redesigning your muscular structure. How you build up muscle is key: You don’t want to look massive and masculine. Switch exercises every 10 days as muscles, especially the smaller ones, have good memory and need to be continually challenged and stimulated.”
       
“For long term results, make exercise a priority. Not caring about your body will mess up the way you look later in life. One hour, minimum 30 minutes, six days a week is all you need to stay connected with your body and get results.”

“Using the body in the same way over and over again can lead to injury or joint problems. With dance aerobics, you are still pounding but are constantly shifting your body and transferring the weight, meaning the joints wear out less.”   

“Lifestyle is an exhausting word. Identify who you are and make exercise a part of that ‘you.’ One study showed women spend 80 percent of their day thinking about negative body issues over lunch, getting dressed and reading magazines…Reverse this critical train of thought and you’ll feel more powerful.”

“Banning foods from someone’s diet can be dangerous. Ban nothing eaten in moderation but put a stop to regular overindulgence. Processed foods with ingredients you can’t pronounce and more than five ingredients should be avoided.”
