7 Female Fitness Experts the Stars Swear by for Staying in Tip-Top Shape

By | Press

May 9, 2018| By Nikki Brown

Yet again, we’ve fallen into that inevitable trap of trying to squeeze a year’s worth of exercise into a month so we can be #bodygoals by summer. Of course, it’s not everyone’s dream to have six-pack abs and buns of steel, but this time of year definitely ignites our inner health nut, and that’s never a bad thing. Generally speaking, experts claim that diet matters most when trying to achieve a healthy weight, but that doesn’t mean exercise should be on the back burner.

For some of us, squeezing in a run, yoga class, or gym sesh is easy, but for others, it’s one of those “out of sight, out of mind” scenarios. If we’re not seeing motivation on a daily basis, you’re more likely to catch us on the couch, binge-watching the latest Netflix hit. This is when social media can be a saving grace. Because in spite of its downfalls and dangerous trends, there also lies a wealth of inspo for all aspects of our life, including health and fitness.

Chances are you follow at least a couple of celebs, whose physical appearance is an important part of their work. And most of them keep a trainer on speed dial for special events or general body maintenance. Ahead are the badass women keeping them in tip-top shape. Make sure you’re following them if you need a little motivation to get moving before June.

By | Blog

Give yourself an early-morning boost with this Tracy Anderson routine.

May 03, 2018

If anyone knows how to start the day right, it’s Tracy Anderson. The celebrity trainer and creator of the widely beloved Tracy Anderson Method is a pro when it comes to crafting the perfect workout for clients, whether they’re looking for a sex-boosting routine, a travel-friendly circuit, or a straightforward core blaster.

Since plenty of us have trouble fighting the urge to hit snooze in the a.m., we figured we’d ask Anderson to show us her most energizing exercises that require no equipment and take minimal time to complete. Because what’s better than a full body workout that can be done first thing—and is over before you know it? In the video above, Anderson takes you through a quickie workout filled with four do-anywhere moves that wake up the body and get the blood flowing fast, so you’re ready to take on the day.

A trainer to the stars (seriously, she’s worked with Gwyneth Paltrow, J.Lo, and Lena Dunham!), Anderson combines invigorating stretches with strength work to create exercises like sunrise lunges and bridge squeezes with leg tucks in this routine. The result is an energy-boosting sweat session that helps you start your day on a healthy note, without stepping foot in the gym. Best of all, each move targets a different area of the body so you’ll finish the lightning fast circuit feeling toned from head to toe—all before breakfast.

Here’s the plan: complete 30 reps of each of the moves in the above clip on one side of the body, then repeat the entire series on the other side of the body. It will only take a few minutes and you’ll feel extra fueled for the day ahead. Rise and shine!

Tracy Anderson proves that it’s possible to stay fit on vacation.

HEALTH.COM

April 26, 2018

You know the feeling all too well: You’re sitting on a airplane—jammed in and uncomfortable—when your legs start to cramp, your back begins to ache, and your neck stiffens. Far from your early morning Spin classes and hot yoga flows, you start to wonder whether you’ll be able to keep up any part of your regular fitness regimen while you’re away.

WATCH THE VIDEO: Tracy Anderson’s Top 5 Belly Fat-Blasting Exercises

The truth is, it can be challenging to stick to your normal exercise routine while traveling. Whether it’s because you’re heading somewhere far away (where SoulCycle—gasp!—doesn’t exist), or because you’re tied up in meetings 24/7 on a business trip, fitting in a gym visit isn’t always doable. But that doesn’t mean you have to ditch exercise altogether.

RELATED: 5 Simple Things You Can Do on a Plane to Avoid a Stiff Neck, Sore Back, and Dead Butt

That’s where Tracy Anderson comes in. In this video, the celebrity trainer shows you exactly how to work out while you’re on the go. Each move is meant to stretch and strengthen your body, so you recover from those lengthy plane rides and get back to building muscle, no matter where you are in the world.

Best of all, none of these exercises require any equipment, so you can do them in your hotel room, outdoors, or even at the airport gate (no judgment!). Follow along as Anderson takes you through her signature moves, including core-strengthening plank variations, glute-sculpting bridges, push-ups, and leg kicks. Consider this clip proof that it’s possible to stay fit on vacation.

Goop Tries Tracy Anderson Class and New Protein Powder

Tracy Anderson Method Goop

Megan Tries:

A New Workout + Protein Powder

March 19, 2018

Megan O’Neill is new to goop—and the initiation process involves a pretty fantastic learning curve. Here, her adventures in onboarding, goop-style:

As the new girl at goop, there’s no not trying a Tracy Anderson class: Everyone here goes or has gone. I’m no bum—yoga and the occasional four-mile jog are part of my morning routine—but a session at TA (as goop staffers affectionately refer to it) is famously next, next level intense/ass-busting. Mainly because all diehard TA-goers sport the same signature cut abs and powerful shoulders; I’m guessing those bodies didn’t get that rocking without some serious—torturous?—isometric holds and elbow grease.

I want in—and I want those shoulders—but I’m daunted. What if I can’t keep up? Or get weirdly flustered (once, in boxing class, I insisted the tears rolling down my cheeks were just sweat)? My biggest worry, though: a painful aftermath. Next-day sore muscles are no joke. Exercise creates micro-tears in muscles, which cues the body’s supply of amino acids—proteins linked to muscle integrity—to repair the damage by building up (and chiseling) your muscles.

Apprehensive, I sign up for a TA Attain Definition class (best for first timers, my coworkers say) at the TA Tribeca studio. At the same time, I start on protein powder in hopes of building strength and staving off soreness. I hadn’t realized how crucial protein is: Every one of our cells needs it to carry out essential activities from strengthening and maintaining muscles to making our hair and skin look spectacular. Our muscle mass drastically declines after 30, and plenty of protein is the secret to the body staying supple and strong. (You want robust muscles to feel powerful and sexy of course, but more importantly, muscles help regulate metabolism and burn more calories than body fat does, even when the body’s at rest.) Studies show that when protein is ingested within 30 minutes of working out, it improves muscle recovery and decreases soreness; Milk Protein’s blend of amino acids, gut-balancing probiotics, and organic, hormone-free milk protein is an amazing (and delicious) way to get it.

So every morning before work, I scoop a tablespoon of Milk Protein + Gut Food powder from a tall, sleek, black glass jar from The Nue Co—the company makes a vast range of amazing supplement powders—along with a teaspoon of their Energy Food + Prebiotic powder into a glass of almond milk and swirl a spoon around until things are blended and creamy.

Goop The Nue Protein Powder

The Nue Co. Milk Protein + Gut Food 200G 

goop, $70

There’s a reason protein is called the building block of life—and why we need some daily: Every cell needs protein to survive, and our bodies use it for everything from immune function to hair growth to post-workout support. This supplement powder is a blend of all nine essential amino acids (types of proteins crucial to the longevity of muscle tissue), spore-based probiotics (which are more effectively absorbed into the gut than live strains, new research suggests) and organic, hormone-free milk protein. Take one tablespoon, once a day, any time, but especially within 30 minutes of working out (studies show that’s the crucial window when protein should be ingested to optimally support muscles to minimize soreness).

Energy Food’s infusion of vitamin- and magnesium-packed maca and goji berry plus brown rice protein may or may not help prevent heave-crying in the middle of class, but together with the almond milk, it tastes like a healthy milkshake.

Goop the Nue Protein

The Nue Co. Energy Food + Prebiotic

goop, $75

This vitamin- and magnesium-rich blend of maca, goji berry, and beetroot is made with an infusion of prebiotic inulin to support gut health. All Nue Co formulas are food based—which makes them easy to digest—and contain no added sugar, gluten or filler. The chic black glass bottles protect the potent ingredients inside, eliminating the need for preservatives.

Judgement day arrives. I call up Nue Co brand founder Jules Miller, a workout buff herself, for last-minute pro tips.

“Maybe I take an espresso shot before the class, you know, to get extra amped?” I ask.

“Sure, but it’s not ideal to rely constantly on caffeine for energy. It can eventually deplete your adrenal glands,” she says. For best results, she recommends the long-term approach I’ve meticulously kept up (four weeks!) to give my protein regimen time to kick in. As we’re hanging up, she reminds me to drink some Milk Protein immediately post-class.

Goop Tracy Anderson Method

Fast forward to 5:30 p.m.: I’m spandex-clad, drenched—and having a blast. The music is pulsating, EDM-ish, and encouraging; I half feel like I’m in a music video as I flail along behind the impossibly svelte teacher, whose graceful form never degrades. In the middle of hamstring lifts—with resistant bands strung around our feet!—I start promising to some higher power that I’ll trade in my whole family and favorite Acne sweater for the end of these excruciating reps. I bounce around for the last half-hour cardio portion of class, lost in the music and movement.

Before I know it, we’re done. I haven’t blacked out or cried or rolled over belly up. Usually, after a tough yoga session, I’m satisfied but a little depleted. Right now, I’m exhilarated—I almost feel I could take a second class. I plop down on the bench in the locker room and take out my Milk Protein.

“What’s that?” a sweaty woman asks.

“Protein!” I say. “It’s good for muscles! I’m hoping to be less sore tomorrow.”

“Yeah right!” she hoots. “I’ve been doing this class a while, and it still destroys me.”

But the next morning, I’m not destroyed. I’m racing around to get out the door, when it hits me: Yes, I’m conscious of my arms and legs in a way that I’m not usually aware of them—and I do feel pleasing tingles in my abs—but I’m not wincing with every motion like I thought I’d be. It’s priceless to feel strong and proud. (My burgeoning, sexy TA shoulders—also priceless.)

Tracy Anderson, the Jane Fonda of the 21st century, lands in Madrid.

By | Press

Tracy Anderson, the Jane Fonda of the 21st century, lands in Madrid.

Vanity Fair Spain | February 20, 2018

At the beginning of the 20th century, the number 10 of Fernando VI Street, in the Madrid neighborhood of Justicia, housed a well-known carriage factory owned by Francisco and Joaquín Lamarca . The Lamarca brothers became suppliers of some of the most important ducal houses and families in the capital. More than a century later, the most select clientele in Madrid promises to knock on the door of number 10 of Fernando VI.

A society linked to the holding of Venezuelan magnate Miguel Ángel Capriles López, cousin of the opposition Henrique Capriles, has reformed the centenary building, the work of Santiago Castellanos Urízar, and has converted it into a luxurious residential estate: 26 unique homes with a garage. All sold! Now, the commercial premises at the foot of the street, where the florist Domingo and a fishmonger used to operate decades ago, will house a gym worthy of Hollywood .

The Capriles family has managed to get Tracy Anderson, the personal trainer of celebrities such as Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, Alexandra Ambrossio  or Lena Dunham, to open her first fitness studio outside the United States … in the emblematic Lamarca building. Anderson is considered the guru of the perfect bodies of the big screen, although she does not accept more famous clients because she is “worried about an industry that is focused on the insecurities of the female gender”.

This petite woman and mother of two daughters has more than 350,000 followers on Instagram and a five-year waiting list at her New York gyms. The one in Madrid will not be the exception. Anderson is considered “the Jane Fonda of the 21st century”. When I was young I dreamed of being a ballet dancer, but was rejected because I was not thin enough. Far from being satisfied, he changed his habits and created his own method : a mixture of dance movements, yoga and aerobic exercises that provoke “muscular strategic exhaustion” based on fast and continuous movements for 10 or 15 minutes.

Tracy Anderson Alexandra Ambrossio

Those who want to put themselves in the hands of Tracy need time: they must train at least six times a week and she recommends that they perform 45 minutes of muscle structuring and another 45 minutes of cardio. Being part of your “club” also costs money. In the United States, the membership of their studies amounts to $ 1,500 and the monthly fee is $ 900, although prices vary by center and city.

The costs of the classes do not seem to stop the expansion of Anderson SA, a real booming empire. He already has seven fitness studios in the United States (four in New York and two in Los Angeles), one in London, and, soon, one in Madrid. In addition to its gyms and personal trainings, it offers weekly master classes and has a whole line of products including its DVDs and tutorials in the network that are still famous as Diana Ross or Sinead O’Connor.

The Spaniards who want to have the body Tracy Anderson can already be queuing at number 10 of Fernando VI. And those who are not willing to pay, they can always buy the DVDs. On January 24, the first job interviews were held to select the monitors of their Madrid office.

WHAT TO WEAR FOR EVERY TYPE OF WORKOUT

What to Wear for Every Type of Workout

GOOP | February 11, 2018

What to Wear for Every Type of Workout

Today’s influx of culty workouts comes with its own set of challenges—specifically, finding high-performance gear that checks all the right boxes. Being equipped with the proper pieces can make a world of difference when it matters most (read: no mid-action wardrobe malfunctions). The below prove that you don’t have to sweat the small stuff…like your top flying over your head during downward dog.

Tracy Anderson

TA’s dance-focused classes use weight-shifting movements to put the core to work, which requires equally dynamic, unrestrictive gear, like a body-skimming leotard with built-in shelf support, to get through class unscathed. The curve-accentuating silhouette fares particularly well layered under sweats. Pro tip: scrunch the cuffs high on the calves, add sneakers, and take it from studio to street.

SoulCycle

When it comes to a sweat-soaked spin class, streamlined separates—a sculpted tank and matching leggings with zero excess fabric—ensure that nothing gets between you and your bike. Anatomically sound flat-lock seams are particularly crucial when working on form, both in and out of the saddle. Post-sweat, throw on a zip-up to keep muscles from cooling down too quickly.

Box + Flow

Equal parts feminine and fierce, the perforated puff-sleeve shirt pulls its weight for a boxing session thanks to its hyper-mobility—especially effective for jabs, hooks, and uppercuts; a cropped legging goes a long way towards keeping legs cool during cardio-fueled rounds. Bonus for the sleek side pockets (hi, hand-wrap storage).

Nike+ Run Club

The key to outdoor workouts is being armed with an all-weather layer you can throw on over a sports bra or under a puffer if need be. A ventilated technical long-sleeve pulls on (for warm-ups) as easily as it peels off (for cool-downs). Full-length leggings, complete with compression down past the ankles, go the distance for everything from trail-running to marathon training to hard-core sprints.

Sky Ting

For a moment of Zen, Sky Ting’s Tribeca studio is the place to be for lengthening, strengthening, and unwinding. Start your practice off with a shed-able layer (this relaxed-fit racerback tank fits the bill) that you can ditch when the room really heats up. Underneath, a hardworking sports bra/crop top hybrid feels right at home with something high-rise for total tummy control when you’re deep in the flow.
