Beatriz Rosenberger’s Tracy Anderson Method Journey
I started the Tracy Anderson Method in 2009 with the first DVDs she brought out (the Mat Workout and Dance Cardio). I followed her evolution with the Perfect Design Series and eventually Metamorphosis. (I was confirmed a “glutecentric” by Tracy herself when I joined a class in the Hamptons in 2011!) In 2015, I became pregnant with my daughter and followed the entire Pregnancy Project program, which was so inspiring and felt so good! I had a great pregnancy and birth and felt full of energy throughout. After that, I followed with Tracy’s first Post-Pregnancy Workout DVD and once I felt strong enough, I finally moved to the TA Online Studio. That was a big game-changer!
“The Tracy Anderson Method has always grounded me, but as life ‘throws challenges at you,’ as Tracy says, I started realizing how this Method was a ‘safe haven’ for me.”
Of course, the first physical changes were quickly visible and that kept me going. After my pregnancy, I started taking it closer to my heart, and I guess online streaming brought this closeness as well. Also, having the Madrid studio so close to Zurich, where I live, and being able to join the Vitality Week there with Tracy and a small group of #TAmily ladies was a magical experience. Plus, every time I visited New York, I would book classes at her studios and always learned so much (big shout-out to Maria D.!). Everything around this Method is pure inspiration—the people, the energy, the love! Plus, I always loved the fact that Tracy didn’t talk, and there was always great music!
Mind, Body, and Soul
The largest change, though, was the mental and emotional one. The Tracy Anderson Method has always grounded me, but as life “throws challenges at you,” as Tracy says, I started realizing how this Method was a “safe haven” for me. I think it teaches humbleness (to learn something new all the time…that is life!), self-confidence at all levels (once you realize you can actually learn it and get better at it), and ultimately, freedom (freedom to not be afraid, to be adventurous, to be yourself, and love life!). It’s given me the courage to start my own business, a dream I’ve always had (a curated boutique for preloved designer fashion, prelovedstory.com), and to follow my gut.
I always felt that Tracy was such a generous person to make this Method and her DVDs accessible to everyone. But I think the biggest gift and generosity that Tracy has is to trust us—trust that we’re capable, trust that we can master anything and never settle for less. She starts with perfection and lets perfection unfold in us!
