Tracy Anderson: Be Honest!
Tracy Anderson, fitness guru of Gwyneth Paltrow, believes that you must know what you want for yourself – and be honest about it – before you can be successful. Tracy says “Have a real conversation about where you’re at with your health. You need to find exercises with some sort of strategy behind them, a strategy for how you want your body to look and perform. Even if the CrossFit class down the street works with your schedule, for example, you shouldn’t be taking that class if you don’t want a CrossFit body”.
Jillian Michaels: Get Motivated!
The best routine in the world doesn’t cut it if you are not motivated to get going. According to Jillian, ” If you’re not into daily affirmations, consider posting a picture of when you looked your BEST on your fridge to stop you from late-night snacking. Short-term goals are great, but you definitely need to think long term as well, think big picture — your daughter’s wedding or a high school reunion, don’t you want to look your best for those events whenever they actually happen?”
