Review and Giveaway: Tracy Anderson 30-Day Method

 




I gave birth to my second child in January, and I will be the first to tell you that my body is less than stellar. I'm not overweight, but I am flabby. I could definitely use some toning up. But, with two kids of my own plus the addition of M during the week, I don't have time to go to a gym. I need something I can do at home on my own.



Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method is a 30 day "boot camp" to jump start your fitness routine.  In the book, Tracy gives you the tools you need to be successful.  It is up to you to decide to use them.

The book features exercises that do not require any fancy equipment. All you need for Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method are a chair, sneakers, ankle weights, and an exercise mat.  There are menus with recipes like "Choco Chestnut Pudding" and "Turkey Avocado Rollup".  There is also a DVD that comes with the book that shows the cardio exercises.

My favorite thing about this book is that Tracy doesn't sugar coat it at all.  She is very up front about the fact that the only way her method is going to work for you is if you follow it exactly.  The first few chapters are about the Method, how it was developed and Tracy's own personal struggle with trying to achieve the perfect body. She repeats, throughout these chapters that you can only be successful if you work hard.  She also believes that if you do the Method her way for 30 days, you should be able to eat food that you enjoy (in moderation, of course) without the worry that one candy bar is going to go straight to your hips.


More about the book from the website:


Did you know muscles get bored, just like people do? And did you also know that there's a 9 out of 10 chance that you're working the wrong muscles when you exercise? With TRACY ANDERSON'S 30-DAY METHOD you don't have to worry--her unique workout will help you drop the weight and shrink your body in just 30 days.

Based on ten years of scientific research and experience getting not just herself, but A-list stars and everyday people, red carpet ready, Anderson has developed a unique 30-day diet and workout routine that reshapes the body and defies genetics to tone the muscles and drop the pounds. While most people incorrectly target their major muscle groups, like the bicep or hamstring, the focus
should be on the smaller accessory muscles that can create a long, lean, balanced look--instead of bulked up look. Anderson's program is composed of a groundbreaking three-tiered approach, including a mat workout and cardio routine targeting the all-important accessory muscles, and an exclusive 30-day meal plan, complete with dozens of delicious recipes.

This comprehensive kick-start program is unlike any other workout on the market and it leaves no chance for anything but terrific, fast results!





Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method is set to be released on September 20, 2010.
