Uh-oh. Looks like Tracy Anderson’s new gym is in some trouble. As we mentioned before, Anderson and actress/clients Gwyneth Paltrow decided to go into the gym business and bring Anderson’s two hours/6-day a week workouts to the public. Well, it looks like things aren’t going so well for the new venture. The Huffington Post reported that the gym is have trouble obtaining members. It seems like the main reason is the price. The “spy” that contacted the Huffington Post said,
“Membership is like $4,500 to join and then hundreds of dollars a month. Who can afford that right now?”
I could not agree more with this spy (and spies are cool anyways). Here are some more details on the membership’s cost:
“In addition to the monthly dues at the new studio, members must pay an initiation fee of $787.50 for six months or $1,500 for a year.”
Really? Thousands of dollars a year to use some f**king rubber bands and to see three story posters of Tracy’s plastic looking body? No thanks.
I beg all of the women that read this blog and listen to The FitCast. Educate your female friends about the BS that Anderson is spewing, because I can promise you that they have seen her or Paltrow talking about how you need to exercise two hours a day six days a week.
If you haven’t seen how Anderson trains her client’s check out this blog post from a few weeks ago. And to be safe, make sure there is no one around you within shouting distance.
