Tracy Anderson (born March 3, 1975)[1] is an American fitness entrepreneur and author. She is best known for her Tracy Anderson Method and for having various celebrity clients.[2][3][4]

Early life and career[edit]

The daughter of dance instructor Diana Ephlin,[5] Anderson trained in dance from an early age in Noblesville, Indiana. She initially hoped to become a professional dancer in New York City. After a 40 lb. weight gain during her first year in New York City, Anderson switched her focus to weight loss/fitness training as a career. Anderson has gym locations in Los Angeles, New York City, The Hamptons, and London and has a DVD collection for at-home training. In 2015, Tracy Anderson launched an online fitness program called TA Video Streaming. Each week, subscribers receive new workouts filmed in real-time at one of her studios.[citation needed]

She has launched a pregnancy workout DVD collection aimed at women in the pre-and-postnatal periods.[6]

Critical reviews[edit]

A number of articles have criticized Anderson's views on weight training for women. In an April 2015 article in The Washington Post, personal trainer Kat Whitfield asserts that Anderson's methods "certainly don’t follow exercise physiology principles."[7]

Personal life[edit]

Anderson has a son named Sam with former husband, Eric Anderson.[8][9][10][11] On September 27, 2011, she married Matthew Mogol in Big Sur, California.[12] Their daughter, Penelope, was born in May 2012.[13] In 2013, Anderson and Mogol split.[14]
