Has anyone tried the Tracy Anderson Method?



Recommended Posts

Im a sucker for infomercials (luckily I never see them), but I got sucked into Metamophosis by Tracy today. It sounded interesting. Has anyone else seen this? What was your impression? Better yet has anyone tried it?

Its a customized 90 day workout program based on your body type. I think you order your program based on if you carry your weight in your abs, hips, butt, or all over. Its supposed to work the smaller muscles to make you lean and not bulk you up. But what was pretty cool was the before and after interviews, because it wasn't just a before/ after pics. You actually see video of the people before they started and after which is kind of cool. But like I said I am a sucker for stuff like this then it collects dust because I don't enjoy it. I might enjoy a program better now since I am 60 lbs lighter lol.

Well you cant target weightloss. You can certainly focus on different muscle groups, but that won't help you lose weight in that area. It sounds misleading in that area.

I think it was more about toning the target area and then the cardio was the same for all the areas.

I haven't seen it, or heard of it, but after reading a bit about it, it sounds pretty funny to me. I'd like to see someone doing it, lol. Targeted area cardio? Wonder how that works exactly, and challenging your DNA to target areas for weight loss? Take it for what its worth, it's an infomercial likely running in the dead of night...you'd be better off getting a trainer some place and getting in a good workout rather than trying to make something of nothing. The only reason she ever got popular was because Madonna endorsed her for a very, very short time. You won't be "bulking up" if you lift weight, or anything of that sort. You can't "lean" a muscle instead of "bulking" the muscle. Muscles grow one way, or they die one way. Take fitness models for instance, they lift, some lift damn heavy, but they don't look any bit of "bulky".

Try to remember, those people in the commercials aren't graduates of said programs, and with photoshop and media arts, it's really pretty easy to make anyone look amazing with a 6 pack and tight toned skin.

I knew someone who went on it and suffered dizziness and fainting spells before she quit it. The food discipline required, which is very strict and unchanging, is not for everyone. It also required 2 hours of workout per day so if that is not something you are up to doing, don't go with this latest fad out there.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
