Anderson, who is 45, has been married before and has two kids. She is best known for developing a workout method that's popular among celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Tracee Ellis Ross, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Victoria Beckham, among others. She owns multiple fitness studios on both coasts and offers online training as well. 

Who is Tracy Anderson's fiancé, Chris Aslplundh?  Read on for all the details. 

1. Tracy Anderson is a fitness guru. 

Anderson started her career as a dancer but gave up ballet after a 40-lb weight gain discouraged her from pursuing her dream. She says that she felt helpless to lose the weight until she learned more about the interplay of major muscle groups from a doctor doing sports rehab research. She built on his work and developed a technique that she claims provides the perfect level of muscle work for long, lean muscles in any type of body. 

2. Anderson is the personal trainer to Gwyneth Paltrow.

Anderson was already training people well before she met the goop founder. In fact, the results Paltrow saw on friends were what inspired her to meet up with Anderson in the first place. “[Paltrow] was having a hard time losing the baby weight after her second baby — she was like [to the friend], ‘What are you doing? What are you doing?’ So she heard about me," Anderson recalled in 2017. "So I went and trained her once and Gwyneth was like, ‘That was the hardest thing I’ve ever done ... I have to start filming a movie in a short amount of time; I need to get the baby weight off.’ ”

At that point, Paltrow really wanted to work intensively with Anderson but she knew that Anderson might have hesitations. “The first thing [Paltrow] said to me was, ‘I realize you have a son and you don’t live where I live. I promise you that I will make sure that he’s fine and taken care of and make sure you can still be a mom. Will you please come and do this?' Anderson recounted. “[Paltrow] was gracious and lovely and genuine and transparent and vulnerable and respectful.”

Paltrow has been so impressed with Anderson's methods that she has been an investor in her fitness company since 2008.
