Tracy Anderson had to get Gwyneth a ‘mini trampoline’, Goop ‘couldn’t do cardio’

6th Annual Hamptons Paddle and Party For Pink

Do you ever get tired of Tracy Anderson trashing her clients? You should, because she literally does it every few months like clockwork. I don’t understand why all of those rich women want to pay all that money just to work with her – it’s such a scam, first of all, and second of all, Tracy hates you and thinks you have a garbage body. She thinks she’s the only one who can transform your body and if your body is not transformed, it’s your fault. And no matter what, she’ll talk sh-t about you whenever she gets the chance. She trashes the moms who come to her for help because she says they have “disaster bodies” and they’re terrible people for not being able to take off the baby weight in a matter of weeks. She trashes her business partner Gwyneth Paltrow in interviews too, but Gwyneth is such a true-believer that she actually doesn’t care. Anyway, guess who Tracy is name-dropping in a new interview? Gwyneth. And Madonna.

When Gwyneth first started with Tracy, she wasn’t walking anywhere: “Bless her heart, she couldn’t do cardio,” Anderson says. “Literally she couldn’t go outside without the paparazzi being everywhere.” Her feet hurt during Anderson’s classes. “I had to get a mini trampoline for her and she was so cute.”

Parting ways with Madonna: “Well, I mean, I wouldn’t look to Madonna for psychological advice,” Anderson replies. Madonna wanted to keep performing, which was one thing, but Anderson says that she began turning away celebrities “who want to look 30 when they’re 50. I think that’s a problem . . . I’m a 42-year-old mother of two. I’m not getting my face tucked or nipped or whatever.”

She broke it off with Madonna: “Madonna can demand whatever she wants to demand, she’s Madonna, that’s just what it is,” Anderson says. “It wasn’t working for me because my demands are like, I have a kid. When I missed my son’s saxophone concert because of a training session with her, I was like, ‘I can’t do this any more.’ That was it for me.”

First of all… Gwyneth came to Tracy around 2009, after Gwyneth gave birth to Moses. Gwyneth was living in London at the time and presumably she walked places? I mean, did Gwyneth, like, have a treadmill or an elliptical or a bike or something? The tiny trampoline, really? And maybe Gwyneth couldn’t do cardio because Gwyneth has been on a neverending “cleanse” for most of her adult life and she literally didn’t have the energy?

As for the Madonna stuff… it irks me that Tracy is trying to push this narrative that she broke up with Madonna. All of the reporting at the time was that Madonna broke it off with Tracy for many reasons. One reason was that Tracy latched on to Gwyneth, because Gwyneth is the “big fish” for con artists like Tracy. The other reason was that Tracy had started dating Philippe van den Bossche, the guy who possibly grifted millions of dollars from Madonna’s Malawi charity. It was a gigantic mess, and Tracy is acting like she dropped Madonna. No. Madonna dropped her.

    My favorite part:

    She couldn’t to cardio because “Literally she couldn’t go outside without the paparazzi being everywhere.”

    Phleaze. Walking is not a cardio workout unless the heart rate goes up within certain parameters. Cardio *at home* is very doable. I currently workout at home because it’s more practical for me at the moment, so I’ll do HIIT and then I use 2.5kg weights.

    • greenmonster says:

      That’s what I thought as well. Gwyneth couldn’t do cardio because of paparazzi? I do HIIT (although I often fear my neighbours knock down my door because of the noise) or go on my exercise bike and I have a teeny tiny flat. Gwyneth could not get any equipment or do HIIT in one of her houses? Yeah, sure.

  2. Happy21 says:

    That last dress does her no favors. That’s all I got…

  3. lassie says:

    Those bewbs, though…

    • slowsnow says:

      In those clothes… I can hardly believe Gwoopy accepts to be seen in public with her. I have watched a few interviews with her and she is judgy as hell.

  4. Tata says:

    Tracy Anderson looks frozen AF in the last pic. Seriously if you said to me, “JK! That is her madame tussaud’s wax figurine!” I would believe you

    This lady’s background will catch up to her at some point, right? I like to think every grifter has their day…

  5. Luca76 says:

    I work out on a trampoline since I’m recovering from a knee injury. They are great really good for your lymphatic system it’s what the astronauts use to rehab from space in other words STFU Tracy.

    • Jennifer says:

      She isn’t moving because her boobs will fall out of that dress she is wearing. I think she looks hunched over in most of her pictures, too.

  6. Julie says:

    I think we can all look forward to the day when Goop eventually “consciously uncouples” with Tracy Anderson. Then TA will be free to provide all the judgey details of Paltrow’s life like she’s doing with Madonna now.

  7. Izzy says:

    Yes Tracy, you’ve had no work done, you are au naturel.

    Much like the Kardashian butts. And Kendall Jenner’s face.

  8. angie0717 says:

    Why would she call out Madonna’s facelifts when TA has a crazy set of bolt ons sitting in her chest? This is pure girl on girl crime and this is why we have such a hard time getting ahead in life! Also, I follow TA on Insta and honestly I’m obsessed at how whack-a-doodle she and her participants look hopping around in her classes. And I’m equally obsessed at how thin all the women in her classes look. So crazy to watch and listen to but TA obviously knows how to trim down and tone a girl right??? Am I alone on this? Thoughts pls!

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      Girl on girl crime…love this!

    • Julie says:

      Or is it Skinny B#h on Skinny B#h crime?! Being hungry all the time can’t help ur mood!!!

    • burnsie says:

      those are bolt-ons? why would you pay for those, they look like crap

      don’t mind my girl-on-girl crime 😛

    • Artemis says:

      but TA obviously knows how to trim down and tone a girl right???

      Everybody would be trim with her insane amount of boring repetitions (that can be achieved with any other exercise if you’re consistent) and a diet that is plain starvation. Her Method never changes, it’s always the same moves which is good to stay skinny I suppose but not to build any meaningful muscles or be healthy in the long-term.
      The Method worked for Madonna as she was muscular but Madonna also eats very healthy and enough and worked with higher weights + combined it with other exercise such as Yoga and Pilates as she had to be in shape not just thin.

      A lot of TA’s clientele have the money and the ‘status’/class as external motivations to deprive themselves of decent and enough food. She attracts a certain type of person. The ones that are healthy eat differently and use other methods (e.g. Jlo). The people who only use TA’s as their main workout are just maintaining thinness. I only use her arm workout 2x/week but mix it up. I can’t do her other workouts as it bores me to tears and I don’t feel the benefits like I do with other workouts.

  9. JG says:

    Honestly, I do her DVDs and they are really good. I love Physique 57 as well. Highly recommend both.

    Yes, I believe her comments about GP. The woman was/is clearly not an athlete or dancer – didn’t she once say she broke the bones in her foot 7 times? So she’s badly coordinated, no flexibility, no cardio endurance, no muscular strength, etc. TA has probably performed a miracle getting someone like her into decent shape.

    I also think Madonna has proven she can’t get along with anyone. Actually none of these women can – their romantic and platonic relationships rarely last more than 5-10 yrs or so.

    • Heather says:

      I love her workouts also! It’s the only thing that has ever toned my arms. It’s true..,

    • greenmonster says:

      Although I have to admit that I do her arms workout, but only because it is under 10 minutes. Years ago I got a sample DVD of her workout with Shape magazine and I became so irritated and annoyed by her monotone voice and face. I can only tolerate her for a very short amount of time.

      • Eileen says:

        Same! Only thing to EVER actually tone my arms. I have tried it all.

        @greenmonster that is why you mute it and play your own music. 🙂

        People b*tch but do you want to be fit or not? I am not paying for her dvds for her lovely personality (sarcasm). Her workout works with my body type. Plain and simple.

  10. Kakoo says:

    Girl, that’s not your jumpsuit (as Tom and Lorenzo would say)

  11. BobaFelty says:

    Who would hire this woman to help get in shape and look better?? She mocks her ‘friends’ and clients, and despite claiming to have the answers to a great looking body, has messed up her face with plastic surgery and gotten bizarre looking new boobs. I’d rather work out with someone who is supportive of me getting healthy and strong, not just thin.

    • Eileen says:

      Her workouts work. Plain and simple. Boring – yes.
      She is borderline psychotic? Yes
      Do you actually lose the inches? Yes (this is WITHOUT being on her starvation diet)

  12. Shijel says:

    You know for someone who’s supposed to have dedicated her life to fitness, Tracy Anderson sure does look like a shapeless, slouching, hungry, miserable little woman.

    Is she one of those women trainers who lure in other women who are scared of having -any- muscle definition because they’re afraid of bulking up?

  13. Leskat says:

    Everytime I see a picture of Tracy Anderson it looks like someone has photoshopped her head just a *little* bit too big onto her body. She’s a real life photoshop fail.

  14. astrid says:

    She looks like some weird space alien

  15. Jennifer says:

    Girl, when your head is bigger than your body, you need to eat a burger.

  16. jana says:

    Tracy Anderson is like a human bobblehead. She really needs to invent an exercise that will shrink her head to match the size of her body.

    • Mystified says:

      I think her head would look less large if she corrected her forward head posture and lost her bulimia jaw.

  17. Camille says:

    Oh, and you realised you couldn’t do it anymore when you missed one concert rehearsal for your child….? I speak on behalf of most women / parents and say, we’ve missed dozens and we don’t fire our boss. We suck it up and go to work so we can pay the bills, and give our kids an extra big cuddle to make up for it. She sounds just as clueless as Gwyneth when it comes to understanding anything about “ordinary” people.

  18. Gew says:

    Has anyone on here ever worked out personally with TA? Her method seems jerry-rigged for osteopenia/osteoporosis If you rigorously follow the diet & exercise 6 days a week. I’m sure she hasn’t conducted any studies herself, as it’s against the grifters code 🙂

  19. aenflex says:

    Her poor right breast. No shade.

  20. Sara says:

    This person is an unindicted criminal who bafflingly has eluded all efforts to stop her. End of story.
