Suri Kasirer’s Tracy Anderson Method Journey
The Tracy Anderson Method has been life-changing for me. I’ve become physically stronger, leaner, and more confident. I’ve made lasting friendships with amazing women in New York City and all over the world. I’ve learned that I can do things I never thought I could do, like dance, move with double ankle weights, do weight transfers, and standing abs.
At the end of each class, I feel such a sense of satisfaction and accomplishment. It never gets easy for me, because as the week goes on I’m continually working on challenging myself to get each and every detail and to push through to master the positions that are the hardest for me. I’ve been able to unlock muscles that became frozen over the years, due to holding patterns or lack of use. I’m physically exhausted when I finish my workout but prepared to tackle my three kids, my challenging work, and whatever comes my way.
“In addition to exercising my body, I’m engaging and training my brain to follow along with the arm sequence.”
Mind, Body, and Soul
My body and my mind are engaged in every workout. In addition to exercising my body, I’m engaging and training my brain to follow along with the arm sequence. The music and the heat have been motivating for me. I love a great playlist; it helps keep me moving, even when I’m tired from a late work dinner or times when I have too much on my mind that I don’t get a good night’s sleep. I enjoy the heat as I’m often cold and enjoy sweating out the previous night’s alcohol. I’ve felt disconnected from my body and struggled with my weight for my whole life; I finally feel good about where I’m at today.
I admire Tracy’s creativity in coming up with a new sequence every week. Change has always been hard for me, and just when I get comfortable with a class, it changes, which forces me to surrender to the new program. It feels like an important life lesson for me to learn to feel positive about new opportunities. I’ve experienced so much growth in the past five years, and I intend to keep going and growing.
