Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method Review and Giveaway

From Publisher: 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! 

My Take: Tracy Anderson was a ballerina who struggled with her weight.  Through trial, error, personal research and willing human lab rats, Tracy has developed this program to sculpt the perfect body.  The program consists of three key components; building accessory muscle tissue, cardiovascular, and healthy eating.

What I liked:
  • The exercises themselves.
  • Recipes at the end
  • A black and white DVD (easier on my eyes) for a fun cardio workout
  • Illustrations in the book itself for stretches and building muscle
What I didn't like:
  • The self-promotion.
  • Time commitment.  45 - 90 minutes every day.  Hello!  That might just be my reading time.  I think not.
  • Claim of scientific research without providing supporting citation.
Overall, I really do like the program.  I'm skeptical that I could have the body of a ballerina since I didn't have it when I was dancing, but it certainly gets the blood pumping and provides motivation for a healthy lifestyle.  My biggest complaint is that the book and DVD are riddled with pictures of Tracy Anderson.  She taunts me.  I have a jealousy complex about abs like that.
