With every season comes a new set of habits, routines, and go-tos. Tracy started this summer off with the exciting six-week Routine Reinvention Challenge, celebrating the power we all have to begin a new chapter in life. Welcoming new ideas into our everyday life encourages us to honor time, and to remember how we live each moment. From the sound of a song to the scent of a skincare product, these favorites remind us to honor the seasons, and enjoy the many eras of our lifetime. So what’s on Tracy’s list this summer?
Favorite Summer Outfit: Casual, but elevated
This is the thing about summer: Function is everything. When it’s hot outside and everyone’s getting active, you never want to turn something down because you’re wearing clothes that aren’t designed for movement. That’s why we’re so excited about all the new drops in the TA Online Shop, including this Héros Unitard.
Favorite Summer Song: “Break My Soul” by Beyoncé
“Motivation/ I’m lookin’ for a new foundation, yeah/ And I’m on that new vibration/ I’m buildin’ my own foundation.”
This latest drop from Queen B is the definitive song of the summer. After the past couple of difficult years we’ve all been through, Beyoncé’s uplifting beats and hip-moving riffs feel like freedom. It’s time for us to start anew, in all kinds of ways. As she chants “You can’t break my soul” over and over, we all join in, rejoicing in the resilience we’ve shown, and committed to transforming that energy into creating new, abundant lives for ourselves.
Tracy recently came out with a dance to “Break My Soul.” Check out Tracy’s dance to this song on her Instagram, and head over to the Tracy Anderson Online Studio for the full dance breakdown. Cardio is best served fun.
Favorite Summer Getaway: Sag Harbor

Tracy inaugurated our new Sag Harbor Studio earlier this month, starting the summer off with a bang. Located in the Sag Harbor Marina out East, Tracy’s latest studio is the ultimate destination for a summer of movement, wellness, and mindfulness. Here’s what she had to say about it:
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to open the Sag Harbor studio. I’ve lived here, raised my son here—it’s definitely a homecoming for me. The main reason we relocated from our East Hampton location to Sag Harbor was to expand our space. Now, we’re able to meet the high demand from clients, and move freely in this sweeping studio along the water. Sag Harbor has always been a place where I’ve felt utterly at peace. I can’t wait to share that feeling with the people who move with me this summer, and beyond.”
Favorite Summer Skincare: Ageless Expression Balm
When it’s hot outside—whether you’re diving in and out of the pool or sweating it out in the heat—you want to be there for your skin. Skin Sequence is unique in that the formulas were designed for bodies in motion. The ingredients are not only skin-brightening, but also provide moisture barriers and skin-tightening properties that boost your physical performance. Get glowing with our new offering: the Ageless Expression Balm, a hydrating and rejuvenating face balm that promotes a youthful appearance.
Favorite Summer Self-Care: Work Out in Nature
Take a moment to remember the height of winter. You wake up freezing in the morning, looking out your window at the cold winter sky. In those sheltered months, all we want is that sweet summer feeling of the sun on your skin, the wind in your hair, warm air welcoming you in the world. We’ve waited for this season all year—let’s make the most out of it. There are a host of benefits to working out in nature, as it is the environment our primal bodies are programmed to move in. At TA, we’re making strides towards a greener fitness industry, and celebrating nature as part of our movement practice is part of that. Whether it’s getting off the treadmill and out on the street, or from the studio to the beach, this is your sign to get outside!
Summer Social Cause: Abortion Access Funds
It’s important to take full advantage of these warmer months to get outside, spend some time with our loved ones, honor our physical bodies, and live our lives to the fullest. It’s equally important to not only feel gratitude for the privileges we hold, but also to demonstrate that through action. We know that there are people in this country who are facing life-or-death decisions this summer in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Here’s a list of abortion access funds and resources fighting the good fight in states with extremely restrictive laws. We encourage you to donate what you can to support everyone’s well-being this summer:
- National Network of Abortion Funds
- Keep Our Clinics
- Aid Access
- Hey Jane
- Exhale Pro-Voice
- Shout Your Abortion
Tracy also just dropped the My Body Tee, a statement-making t-shirt that takes a stand on the fight for reproductive justice. Whether it’s donating or raising awareness, take a moment this summer to turn outrage into action.
Favorite Summer Party Dish: Watermelon Gazpacho
One of our favorite recipes from the Routine Reinvention Challenge is the Watermelon Gazpacho, straight from The Reinvention Issue of Tracy Anderson Magazine. Our refreshing take on a traditional Spanish dish, this Watermelon Gazpacho captures that fresh tomato and rich olive oil flavor, with that classic summer watermelon sweetness. It’s especially perfect for a day party at the beach or by the pool, to keep everyone hydrated in the sun. It suits most diets, being gluten-free, dairy-free, and plant-based. Served cold or at room temp, it’s a go-to for any summer gathering.
Here’s to a great summer!
