Brace Yourselves…Tracy Anderson is Targeting Men Now Too

by Meaghan posted April 13, 2014

The other day, we looked at some up-and-coming fitness equipment in a post entitled, “Useful Tools or Just More Toys?”

Today, enter one of the industry’s most useless tools:

But she’s not just targeting women anymore. She now has a new “men’s only” method of training… because, you know, it’s also important for men not to overdevelop. Right now, it’s all about being ‘skinny ripped.’ Men want to be panthers. Didn’t you know?

For years, Tracy Anderson has been telling the world that when women lift heavy, they look like this:

 

Good thing we kept her around long enough to inform us that guys shouldn’t lift so much either, because they really want this:

 

And Tracy can make it happen.

MEN + PINK DUMBBELLS = SKINNY RIPPED PANTHER.

Hot.

WTF?!?!

Among the other ridiculous things Ms. Anderson says in this interview are:

1. “I probably actually set a gold standard of what it takes to set a real fitness method. I did a five-year research study with 150 women and measured them every 10 days and I created original content and sequencing for each of them and navigated them..I wasn’t measuring BMI or typical measurements. I was measuring based on the idea of how to create balance where there is imbalance in the body…They knew they were guinea pigs…This was in Indiana.”

If measuring an idea based on navigating guinea pigs in Indiana is the gold standard of a fitness method, this industry is in big trouble. I either want to quit my job or work exponentially harder to shut down such nonsense – not sure which.

 

2. “Your body has no idea what the hell to do with the soda, so this floats through your body, and it stores it as inflammation, which is a very important word that needs to be understood correctly.”

Huh?? Things do not get “stored” as inflammation. Inflammation occurs early in the healing process and is triggered by injury or when the body perceives invasion by a foreign agent. And yes, Ms. Anderson, people should understand this correctly… For some reason, Alanis Morissette just started playing in my head.

 

 

And her biggest fallacy yet:

3. “Our muscles and our brains are the only tools we have.”

Not true. We also have you, Ms. Anderson.
