For real, this was the cover that was BORN to happen.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy AndersonÃ¢â¬â¢s Hamptons Magazine cover story is just as ridiculous as you might think, and essentially exists to promote their new studio IN the Hamptons and their new food-delivery service called 3 Green Hearts which is just as new age-y and restricted as this article is ridiculous. He’re are some of the best moments of the interview, bearing in mind Gwyneth was supposed to be interviewing Tracy:
Tracy on her connection to the Hamptons: Ã¢â¬ÅFunny you should ask that of me, since youÃ¢â¬â¢re responsible for introducing me to [the Hamptons]. But the Hamptons is where IÃ¢â¬â¢ve called home for the last eight yearsÃ¢â¬âever since we first started working together on your lovely body for the first Iron Man. You, of course, have a beautiful home in Amagansett, and were lovely enough to bring me and my family out for the summer to continue our work together. We just have never left.
GoopÃ¢â¬â¢s shill for Tracy: Ã¢â¬ÅTo me, youÃ¢â¬â¢re a total fitness expert. You look like some kind of swimsuit model, but youÃ¢â¬â¢re really a scientist. ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s how I see the Tracy Anderson lifestyle. [You know the regimen,] the food combinations, and the best exercise clothes, but you also have such great style. All of that will be available at the new East Hampton studio.Ã¢â¬Â
Tracy judges women who donÃ¢â¬â¢t wear the correct workout clothes: Ã¢â¬ÅIf you need to lose weight, if you want to make sure youÃ¢â¬â¢re balanced everywhere and youÃ¢â¬â¢re able to perform, the food really matters. [And what you wear to work out really matters.] If youÃ¢â¬â¢re just in a crummy T-shirt with spit-up on it from your baby, then your performance is not going to be what it can be.Ã¢â¬Â
Goop on TracyÃ¢â¬â¢s workout donÃ¢â¬â¢ts: Ã¢â¬ÅAre there any fitness methods that you donÃ¢â¬â¢t recommend? I know you told me once not to only do the elliptical. Why donÃ¢â¬â¢t you like fitness methods that rely on one repetitive motion?Ã¢â¬Â
TracyÃ¢â¬â¢s workout donÃ¢â¬â¢ts: Ã¢â¬ÅBecause I think that when people want to feel balanced and connected, they shouldnÃ¢â¬â¢t overdo anything. Many people donÃ¢â¬â¢t know what is going to make them feel balanced. If someone is pushing a ton of weight or if theyÃ¢â¬â¢re slinging things in the air or cycling, theyÃ¢â¬â¢re wearing down their joints. TheyÃ¢â¬â¢re compartmentalizing the larger muscles that are bone movers and theyÃ¢â¬â¢re actually creating further imbalance in the body. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s not even that your little muscles donÃ¢â¬â¢t activate; youÃ¢â¬â¢re charging up the same larger muscles over and over again. I see women all the time who say they run 15 miles a day but their butts are saggy. YouÃ¢â¬â¢ve got muscles underneath the glutes that are inactive. ThereÃ¢â¬â¢s no reason for them to work right now because your glutes are crazy strong. ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s not what is going to lift your butt up. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s just purely an education. IÃ¢â¬â¢m fine with anybody wanting to do whatever they want; itÃ¢â¬â¢s just about understanding what youÃ¢â¬â¢re actually doing with your body and what the result is going to be.
What do you think of this duo? And Tracy’s workout dos and don’ts?
