Yesterday, I posted this amaze image of my guns (wow so much joking happening here, hope you realize) and a few of you asked what/how I am doing so I thought I would give you the current exercise low.
Admittedly, I am a fan of Gwyneth. I mean, more so a fan of her age + looks than anything else but I digress. With that said, it may come as a surprise that I haven't dabbled in the Tracy Anderson Method as of yet. Until recently, I had been committed to a mixture of Hot Yoga once or twice a week and then kicking my own butt in whatever way I could think of that day... a HIIT youtube video, or sprinting up our driveway a bunch of times, or just getting in 100 squats if the day was busy. But I wasn't in love with anything I could do from home.
Then, I thought... why not Tracy? What's stopping me? I mean, Gwyneth?!! So, I went out on a limb and rented her Beginner's DVD to give it a whirl for a whopping $2.99. And, guys, I am SO INTO IT. So into it that I bought the DVD after my rental expired and bought all the gear, too. I'm kinddddda in love w/ Tracy. I love way she talks about body sculpting and feminine lines. She is a super clear instructor and uses really good imagery to help you figure out how to do the movements. She's been makin' me all like take me to your leader... except she IS the leader. And even after the first few workouts when I didn't have the weights, I felt so thoroughly worked out. Sore muscles in places that haven't been sore... ever... like along my hips?? What? I think she really knows what she's doing.
And it's definitely a "method" for a reason - it's clearly very calculated and unlike any exercise style I've experienced. I want to do it everyday and I am feeling it, and seeing changes already, so... sold! Sold, sold, sold.
My goal/what you're supposed to do is the beginner workout 4-6 times a week until you're super comfortable with it and then move onto Tracy Anderson Metamorphosis. I'm all about it!! Have any of you done TAM before?? Wanna do it with me??
