Jennifer Lopez’s Trainer, Tracy Anderson, Unveils New Workout DVDs: Her Weight Loss Tips

tracy-anderson workout DVDTracy Anderson, the fitness guru responsible for Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow’s hot bodies, has launched two new workout videos.

Anderson says you can get in the best shape of your life and achieve your weight loss goals with Mat Workout for Beginners and Cardio Dance for Beginners.

Tracy, who herself lost 30 pounds just six weeks after giving birth to her second child, says women should strive for long, lean muscles that can only come from lifting light weights (three pounds maximum) at high repetitions.

“While bulkier muscle looks OK on women in their 20s and 30s, it doesn’t age well,” blogged Anderson, creator of the bestselling Tracy Anderson Method workout DVD.

Tracy’s exercise tips contradict the advice of most fitness experts, who recommend that women lift heavy weights and shouldn’t be concerned that weight-lifting will bulk them up.

“I have occasionally designed programs for men that incorporate kettle bells, but I would never recommend them to women, even for women who are fans of bulkier muscle lines,” wrote Anderson.

Tracy also said running isn’t ideal for weight loss, saying sculpting your muscles with light weight-lifting is better for getting rid of trouble spots.

“While running and cycling may burn calories, they do not design feminine muscles or get rid of an imbalance that may masquerade as a ‘problem area’ — even on women who are genetically thin,” she wrote.

Anderson revealed all her weight loss, diet and workout secrets in her book, Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method. Tracy trains Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez, who’s hotter than ever at 45.
