Tracy Anderson started dancing as a child, and at age 18 she traveled from her hometown in the Midwest to New York, determined to realize her life-long dream of becoming a professional dancer. After experiencing a considerable amount of weight gain, she began to experiment and create her own workout methods that led to a complete transformation of her own body.
Alongside her work as a dancer, Tracy decided to study and research muscle structure and specific training techniques. Armed with the knowledge from her research, she developed a computer software program for training to guide her and allow her to keep the balance between weight loss and a healthy body.
After 10 years of extensive research and development, Tracy has designed several fitness systems – including bands, bars, and cubes. These systems challenge the small muscle groups by offering resistance as well as forcing the body to rely on its balance. Tracy also designed the Hybrid Body Reformer, an apparatus that uses a fusion of aerobic and dance movements, to re-engineer the muscular structure. The overall mission of Tracy’s method is to strengthen the smaller muscle groups so that these muscles can pull in the larger muscles – which results in a lean figure that is not bulky. Tracy’s method has transformed the bodies of countless women to their tiniest, strongest points, and she has helped her clients achieve toned and defined bodies with smooth and firm skin.
In order to share her technique with people around the world, Tracy has released three top-selling fitness
DVDs and Her Perfect Design Series I-III, Beginner Dance Aerobics and Dance Cardio II are available on www.tracyandersonmethod.com. Additionally, Tracy’s book, Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method:
