Get ready to sweat it out like the celebs: Tracy Anderson , fitness trainer to stars including Gwyneth Paltrow , Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, and Jennifer Lopez, is opening a pop-up studio in a portion of the former Scoop store in Highland Park Village . Anderson coined the Tracy Anderson Method, which whips her clients into shape by focusing on accessory muscles in muscular structure and dance cardio classes.
For Anderson, writing notes down and visualizing her tasks on paper works best. "It's like I need to see all of the pieces or the obstacles and then I'll figure it out for myself." If text and email overload is weighing you down, Anderson's notebook method could work for you.
There's a reason Tracy Anderson has become a lasting phenomenon: Her original technique for sculpting women's bodies with her high-energy, limb-contorting routines has everything to do with her deeply intentional focus on self-care and obsession with results. Recently, Tracy collaborated with classical natural beauty brand, Ecco Bella , for a line of highly effective, obsessively clean products that carry her intentional focus on into a whole new dimension of women's lives.
She also bitched about those of us who enjoy walking, saying: "Now, I'm not knocking any level of showing up, but I think many people are stuck in preschool with their bodies. Going for a walk is like going to preschool--but you could go to college, you could get your master's degree."

The lifestyle guru's new health food company, co-owned by trainer pal Tracy Anderson, is being sued by a firm hired to create a food line -- that was allegedly never paid!

Exercise guru, Hamptonite, and creator of her eponymous dance-inspired method, Tracy Anderson shares her perfect day. My morning starts with a family snuggle in my oldest son Sam's bed with my youngest child, Penny, after she wakes up. At 9:30 a.m., I lead and film a workout starting with one hour of muscular structure followed by an hour of dance cardio at my Water Mill studio (903 Montauk Hwy., Water Mill, 604-6529), my favorite place in the world to teach.
"We were just texting the other day. We haven't been working together in terms of her fitness lately, because they are putting everything they've got into this last season of 'Girls.' " Whether she still trains Kim Kardashian: "I have before, but I don't know," she said, admitting that it's possible the reality star streams her workouts online and is keeping up at home.
We asked our go-to trainer to answer some of our burning questions about getting the most out of our workouts--and what causes fat to linger. We heard that to burn fat, it's good to do cardio on an empty stomach so that your body immediately targets fat cells when you start exercising.
Having already ventured beyond the studio with organic prepared food and protein bars and shakes , the megabrand trainer slyly told Elle that she's set her sights towards shaping up women's closets.

The methodology behind the streaming program is community-focused, and the strategic movements in the workout build a sense of connectedness: The movements help each individual to feel connected to their bodies, to themselves.
