Losing weight the celebrity “weigh”!

Updated on June 2, 2011

There are many “fad” diets out there and just as many celebrity sponsored ones that purport to give you a fantastic body and shape with little or no effort. The most recent one doing the rounds in fact is the Maple Syrup and Pepper diet (popularized by Beyoncé), but the one thing they all have in common is that they really do not work – in fact in more than one case, not only do they not work, they are dangerous and could make you ill! The Tracy Anderson method in contrast is no fad at all but simple science with an established methodology for working and targeting a person’s problem areas through a combination of diet and exercise.

Tracy Anderson has come to significant popular attention due to her appearance with Gwyneth Paltrow on the Oprah Winfrey show. Gwyneth’s statement on the show that her weight loss is directly attributable to Tracy and her workout methods which incorporate dance moves, stretching and light weights have made her an instant hit.

The Tracy Anderson method specifically targets the accessory muscles – similar to Pilates – and works through a combination of light weights and cardio burning exercises to music that can be performed in the privacy of your own home versus a gym. Aside from the obvious money saving benefits of doing your workout at home, having access to everything you need at any time of day or night, makes it significantly easier to prioritize your workouts and ensure that you do not miss any days.

Tracy’s clients include some of the biggest names in music, television and film and read like a who’s who of the most beautiful (and fittest) women in the world. With celebrities like Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Shakira and Jennifer Lopez amongst her clients – Tracy Anderson is not only able to personalize her workouts to suit the needs and requirements of her customers but is also able to provide packages and services that meet the needs of all types of bodies.

There are a couple of different Tracy Anderson products available for purchase and depending upon your expertise and current level of fitness, one or more of these might appeal. While Tracy Anderson has an exercise regime that anyone can do, there are definite levels of skill involved in doing it correctly and it is only through practice and repetition that you will be able to obtain the desired results, in fact you should expect that your initial sessions will be a very difficult and painful learning experience as you exercise new muscles and make your body move in brand new ways.

While there are many trainers “to the stars”, the obvious results and satisfaction that Tracy’s clients have definitely give her method a “leg up” versus her competition.

      Hi Sun-Girl, thanks for reading! I'm actually thinking of starting this training method myself now as the research leads me to believe that this might be the weight loss solution I've been looking for! I'll make sure to keep everyone up to date with some hubs. :)
