Kim Pullen’s Tracy Anderson Method Journey

I began my Tracy Anderson Method journey when a friend of mine convinced me to get on Instagram in 2018. I grew up as a dancer and have always been into fitness. I started searching through fitness accounts on IG and that’s when I came across Tracy’s account. I knew she had DVDs and was a trainer to the stars, but I soon realized she had an entire community (the #TAmily) that was streaming her workouts from home. I watched so many people on IG performing her moves and thought  “I’ve never seen anything like this before.” At that time, I was going to the gym and taking barre, boot camp, and spin classes. While I never had a significant amount of weight to lose, I felt like I just wasn’t getting the results I wanted and I needed a change. So I decided to sign up for the six-month streaming package and have never looked back.

When you go to bed feeling excited to get up to do your workout, you know you’ve found something special!

Mind, Body, and Soul

The Method is everything to me. After a few months I began to see new muscle definition that I had never seen before. Tracy targets and wakes up the small accessory muscles. Not only does her Method challenge me physically, week after week, but it’s the mind-body connection that keeps me coming back for more. For me, every morning when I hit my mat, it’s my form of meditation. No matter what’s going on in my life, good or bad, it’s my time to be with myself and process all my emotions. I come out feeling stronger, both physically and mentally. 

Besides the physical and mental aspects of the Method, my favorite part is the connection to the #TAmily. During the Vitality weeks and city meet-ups, I’ve met so many people from all over the world who all share a love for the Method. Even though I’m alone in my workout studio every day, I never feel alone knowing that so many people from all over the world are moving with me in the same way. The support that comes with being part of the #TAmily is always so positive. I’m continually blown away by the encouragement that Tracy gives us with her ever-evolving Method, her amazing trainers, her extensive research, and her magazine. It’s all packed with so much information and is truly one-of-a-kind. I always say, when you go to bed feeling excited to get up to do your workout, you know you’ve found something special!
