I was just reading Fit Sugar when I came across the piece on the May 2011 issue of Self Magazine. Gwyneth Paltrow is on the cover. She is quoted saying “I never thought that I’d be considered to have a good body. I was bony up top and kind of dumpy on the bottom. But my trainer, Tracy Anderson, completely changed my legs, butt, arms and stomach. I feel better than ever, too.”
Reading that makes me want to pull out my Tracy Anderson videos but I know that I just can’t stand videos. I need to take an actual class. Also, I noted that Gwyneth didn’t say “my trainer and business partner.” I don’t mean to be a hater, but I wanted to point that out. I don’t know if many people are aware that they are business partners.
Since my interest in Tracy was peaked, I decided to go a google search and see where else she has popped up. I found an interesting personal essay that was published in the UK.
This Huffington Post article was also interesting. I should note that in this one, Gwyneth does refer to Tracy as her trainer and partner. I have to say that, in my opinion, this reads like an ad for Tracy’s videos. Apparently one of Gwyneth’s newletters focused on Tracy. I do love me before and after shots. They were very impressive although I’d need to learn more details.
Even Jessica Simpson has gone on the Tracy bandwagon. I wonder who will be next?
