So, a few days ago, I clicked on a link on TA’s site to get more information on her new studio that is opening up in NYC.
I received an email back, asking for my cc information and saying that a 3 month membership was 5k. Yes, $5,000!!! The 5k gets you:
The Holiday Platinum Package includes:
3 Month Membership
30 Minute Private Consultation with Tracy Anderson
10 Private Training Sessions with One of Our Trainers
Unlimited Access to Classes
Nutritional Strategy to Follow
I emailed back asking when the studio would open. No answer back yet.
Today, I read this article about how Gwyneth Paltrow is considering helping Tracy Anderson open numerous studios. It’s no surprise that she is financially helping TA. No doubt, TA and GP are making bucks. They appeared on Oprah for goodness sakes! Plus, TA has been featured in tons of magazines (yeah, I read them all). I also read a few other fitness forums and every time TA’s name is mentioned, people get all riled up! I have never experienced such a thing before in my life.
Some of these women have said that since doing TA’s dvds, they have lost some serious weight and gained muscle. I think that’s great for them. If it’s working for you, then do it! Do I buy what TA says that using the treadmill or taking spinning classes can make women’s legs bulky or that women should never lift more than 3 pounds? Come on now!
I will definitely make an effort to check out her studio when it opens up. I am definitely NOT going to pay 5k for a membership though. Unless my husband decides to get me a great Valentine’s Day present!?!??!?!?
