Tracy Anderson may work up a sweat every day as the founder of the celebrity go-to sweat session, the Tracy Anderson Method, so for the holidays, she could use some comfy clothes to relax in, or maybe just two of her.
“I would definitely take a stunt double,” the fitness guru told Page Six last month. “I feel like I’m making more content than I ever have in my career,” she said, referencing her streaming service, TA Online Studio, which delivers her workouts on demand.
But if the proper stunt double can’t be found, then a vacation — with a prime exercise setting — will suffice.
“I wouldn’t mind being on a deserted island where the heat and humidity is perfectly on point and I can work out outside and relax with the people I love,” she said. “I could use a vacation, like an actual proper vacation.”
However, the Hamptons resident, who told us she loves “to dress up, be around tons of friends and family and stay up as late as possible” on Christmas Eve, always needs to bundle up not just around holiday time, but any time.
“I’m always freezing so if I have to be like snobby about something; I am obsessed with Loro Piana baby cashmere sweaters[or] maybe like a giant shearling jacket.”
Additionally, for some all-weather apparel, the workout expert wouldn’t mind a shopping spree with clothing brand Off-White or “maybe a lot of great sunglasses,” admitting that she loses her shades “all the time.”
Anderson, who also has studios in Los Angeles, would also love for friends and family to donate to wildfire relief.
As for her recommendations for finding a gift for a fitness enthusiast or someone looking to get in shape, the trainer suggests at-home gym gear including a mat, ankle weights or small hand weights or a gift card to her streaming service. And Anderson-approved reads such as “The Clarity Cleanse” and “Road to Character.”
She also suggests gift cards to healthy spots such as Whole Foods, Hamptons favorite Provisions or to a health-minded restaurant like ABC V in Manhattan.
But the gifts in the wellness department can be saved for when 2019 hits, as traditional dishes are on her mind leading up to Christmas Day.
“My grandmother, she’s amazing at making these chicken and noodles that are like dumplings so I love those with mashed potatoes [and] I love a weird casserole, I’ll take a classic green bean casserole any day,” she said.
