The most important part of the royals beauty routine

 

In her recent appearance at the BAFTAs, the Duchess of Cambridge confirmed a theory: queens and princesses don’t take care of their hair or their face the most. The royals most important part of their routine is less obvious.

Sofía Lázaro – Themost anticipated moment of the 2019, The British Academy Film Awards, did not disappoint: Kate Middleton appeared with earrings rescued from Lady Di’s jewelry box and a dress by Alexander McQueen, an asymmetrical bridal look that should go straight to the Pinterests of all the brides of 2019 and years to come. Although it is not the first time that the Duchess of Cambridge wore her mother-in-law’s jewels , that wasn’t the detail that caught our attention the most.

It was her arms: perfectly toned and slightly muscled, with no trace of flaccidity. Kate Middleton has been an accomplished sportswoman since she was a child: skating, swimming, playing tennis, hockey, skiing, polo and especially rowing (she had to leave her team because of the constant presence of the paparazzi), practices that have left perfectly sculpted arms — reminding us of another iconic image …

Right! Her sister-in-law Meghan Markle dressed in Stella McCartney while leaving Windsor Castle for the reception of her wedding with Prince Harry in May 2018. Who didn’t  feel ‘arm envy’ when they saw the Duchess of Sussex with those shoulders and forearms perfectly defined by the impeccable halter-neck dress. Her secret? A lot of effort! Meghan follows the method of Tracy Anderson (and has even gotten Harry to join in ), a celebrity favorite when it comes to personal training.

And, of course, it’s impossible to talk about royals and their defined arms without mentioning her: Mrs. Letizia steals the attention of the international press every time she wears a sleeveless suit with her incredibly defined arm muscles. In this article we already spilled all her (many) secrets that contribute to a figure that looks more like it was sculpted out of marble than flesh. In her fitness routine the queen practices yoga, often goes to the gym, attends Zumba two or three times a week and has started to enjoy to the benefits of power walking. Let’s face it: maybe they are princesses by luck, but some royal arms (at least these) weren’t built by chance…

GWYNETH PALTROW is many things – an Oscar winner, founder of the GOOP empire, and the lead fan girl of fitness guru, Tracy Anderson’s many celebrity devotees.

Tracy has helped shape some of the best bodies in Hollywood, as well as most of the best mere mortal bodies we know here in LA. Her signature dance-inspired method is shaped by two decades of scientific research about the female physique.

The Tracy Anderson Method is all about working small muscle groups through repetitive high-rep movements. The classes at her studios in Manhattan, the Hamptons, Los Angeles, and online through her streaming sessions, change every week to keep bringing results and avoid hitting plateaus.

Tracy and Gwyneth started working together after Gwyneth gave birth to her second child, Moses, in 2006 and was struggling to lose 20-pounds of baby weight. After one session with Tracy, Gwyneth was hooked.

During our recent interview with Tracy, she share with us the story of Gwyneth’s results. “Years ago when Gwyneth Paltrow first started with me she lost 11 inches in her body after the first 10 sessions. She did it 10 days in a row and that was the result of it. You can actually see significant difference in how your body looks and feels after a full 10 days.”

Stunned by the results, Gwyneth hired Tracy as her personal trainer and eventually the pair went into business together promoting Tracy’s magic methods to the world. While weight loss is a natural byproduct of the work, the motivation is more about being healthy, strong and balanced in a sustainable way — to feel like we’re tapping into our best inner and outer selves.

For Ross, that’s usually the Tracy Anderson Method, a workout studio started by celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson. (Meghan MarkleGwyneth PaltrowJennifer Lopez, and pretty much every celebrity you’ve ever heard of are also Tracy Anderson enthusiasts.)

According to the studio’s website, the Tracy Anderson Method offers a variety of classes that focus on accessory muscles, the smaller muscles in the body that don’t get as much attention as larger ones like biceps and glutes.

“I have to say that Tracy Anderson’s workout the last five years has been really good for me,” she said in an interview with Health magazine in 2017. “I love the studio atmosphere, I love how beautiful and sexy and long and strong I look when I work out, and I love the loud music.”

Ross will often Instagram her classes at the Tracy Anderson Method, too.

She does weight training

Ross has also posted about going to Heart and Hustle, an exclusive personal training studio in Los Angeles that refers to its trainers as “respectable educators.” In one Instagram post of her workout at Heart and Hustle, she did squats with a kettlebell, bicep curls, and alternating lunges on a platform.

She pays particular attention to her glutes

Tracy Anderson thinks you should stay at home (and sweat)

MORE OF US ARE ditching the studio and staying home to sweat with streaming workouts. But does missing out on the structure and competitive environment of a traditional studio class mean we’re missing out? Are we getting as good of a workout when we stream on our own?

We recently met up with fitness pioneer – and total babe – Tracy Anderson, who has helped shape some of the best bodies in Hollywood with her totally unique, dance-inspired method. Tracy did years of scientific research to perfect her method, and a few years back, launched an online platform to make her workouts more accessible. Her streaming workouts are just as challenging as they are famed to be here in her LA studios — and she has more online workouts available than almost any program in the world.

We asked Tracy to tell us how to get the most out of a streaming workout and we’re sharing a few reasons that Tracy is such a fan of making time to sweat at home…

3 Reasons To Embrace Streaming Workouts At Home

THEY ARE ADAPTIVE |  “We’re all really busy. I’m a mother of a 20-year-old and a 6-year-old, and I’m also the breadwinner of the family. I know what it means to be busy, to have a lot of people demanding your attention. Even if you’re not that, if you’re a young adult that is in school or making your way, the point is we all have a lot on our plates.”

One of the biggest benefits of working out is that it helps reduce stress, but does squeezing in time for a studio session create more stress than it’s taking away? Streaming workouts are available whenever you are, which can make them more enjoyable – never mind more do-able.

THEY ARE EFFICIENT | “I think that it’s a really major benefit of the advancement in technology that we don’t have to get in our car, drive, change, workout, socialize with people, shower, get back in the car… it takes up so much of our day. I love the efficiency of home workouts. I’ve made sure to only put out things that actually work at home.”

Streaming workouts make it so you only have to spend time on your workout, not on everything leading up to it. When we’re able to get a great sweat in without stressing over how much time we have to dedicate to it, we’re more likely to keep up with it.

THEY CREATE UNIQUE COMMUNITIES | “With social media, we can have a community that is global. I recommend that people doing home workouts tap into that resource. I think we need to break more boundaries like that, we need to open up our neighborhoods to the whole world and it really allows you to do that. I have streamers in 50 different countries and so many different languages — but the language of love, the language of movement, the language of health is universal.”

We love the built-in motivation of taking a class surrounded by other people. It turns up the energy in the room and gets us feeling just the right amount of competitive motivation. Streaming workouts remove the crowd, but not the community. We love Tracy’s point about connecting beyond our own neighborhoods!

Tracy Anderson’s latest apparel collection empowers women

TRACY ANDERSON AIMS TO EMPOWER WOMEN WITH THE RELEASE OF HER LATEST APPAREL COLLECTION

 
Fitness expert Tracy Anderson has teamed up with Lingua Franca, a sustainably-sourced, fair trade luxury cashmere sweater brand, to create a special three-piece collection that epitomizes the “New Year, New You” motif.


 

With motivational sayings such as “Create Balance” and “You Are how You Move,” the new pieces not only offer comfort, but were also designed to inspire and empower people to reach their goals in 2019.

“Each sweater represents a message that I personally follow, and have instilled in my clients for years,” shares Tracy Anderson, founder and creator of the Tracy Anderson Method. “I am so excited to be partnering with Lingua Franca, a socially progressive brand that I have admired since its inception, and bringing these stylish, health conscious and celebratory pieces to women everywhere.”

The three sweaters come in multiple colors: smoke grey with cobalt blue thread, cream with black thread, and sea foam with red thread.

The limited-edition collection is available for purchase at Tracy Anderson studio locations in New York City, as well as online as tracyanderson.com.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each sweater sold will be donated to Planned Parenthood.

Victoria Beckham has teamed up with Reebok

Victoria Beckham Has Teamed Up With Reebok on a New Athleticwear Collection—And You’re Going to Want Everything

Two hours a day, seven days a week, with a mix of the treadmill and the Tracy Anderson Method: Victoria Beckham is serious about exercise and knows her way around a pair of trainers. So when it came time to design her own—her new collaboration with Reebok launched this month—she was characteristically precise.

“Every time I launch something new, it’s because it’s something I want in my life,” Beckham says at the New York shoot for the campaign. “I’ve wanted to put a trainer in my collection for a long, long time, but it’s something that’s very specialized—I had to do it with a brand that had the technical experience and the know-how.” The result is fashion-forward in the extreme: Available in sunset orange and a very Victoria Beckham shade of camel, it’s a sock style with a leg that extends several inches past the ankle and a logo that merges Reebok’s familiar vector with their collaborator’s VB most seamlessly.

Beckham has been a Reebok fan since way back—in the nineties, before she fronted a little group called the Spice Girls, she kept a few different colors of their high-top classics in steady rotation—but there’s nothing retro about the extensive sportswear collection she’s created with the company. It ranges from functional sports bras and seamless leggings to sleeveless hoodies and a pair of basketball-inspired tailored snap trousers (the Beckhams are Los Angeles Lakers fans from their days in California) so polished that someone on the Reebok shoot mistook them for Victoria Beckham collection. “I expect a lot out of my workout clothing,” Beckham says, “but I also expect it to be able to carry me from the gym through the day. It’s hard to find things that feel cool and not too mumsy. This has a strong fashion edge—and I can’t wait to start wearing it.”

The big surprise is how much of the line functions as unisex. Beckham has three sons and one little girl, and they’ve shared lots of positive feedback. “With Cruz [her third child] I know every Thursday morning there’s a Supreme drop. So when he says to me, ‘I want those shoes’ or ‘I want that hoodie,’ I take that as a compliment.” Could menswear be part of the future of the Victoria Beckham brand? “Yeah,” she says, “I would love to do that.” First, though: season two with Reebok—and, just possibly, some exercise tutorials on her new YouTube channel.

3. Find a friend/ make it a family affair – Be accountable and have fun.
