Tracy Anderson began dancing as a child and at age 18 traveled to New York to realize her dream of becoming a professional dancer. After experiencing a considerable amount of weight gain, she began to experiment and research her own workout methods to transform her body--and those of others. After ten years of extensive research she developed the Tracy Anderson Method. Anderson has trained stars like Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Courteney Cox, Molly Sims and Naomi Watts, among others. She also owns the Tracy Anderson Method Stuido located in NY and LA and shares her unique workouts through her successful DVDs and webinars.
