Tracy Anderson has spent 20 years building her fitness empire — and she’s not afraid to defend it.
Anderson’s been touted as “Hollywood’s secret weapon.” She’s so beloved by Gwyneth Paltrow that the actor even invested in Anderson’s business. Her empire caters to wealthy women and offers a dance-based workout in a room heated to 95 degrees with 75% humidity. One former TA trainer told Insider, “This is not just a gym; it’s a status symbol.”
But despite the success, Anderson has existed in a state of paranoia for years — constantly fearful that her trainers would quit and steal her clients and her method, several people said.
For many Los Angeles and New York trainers, receiving legal threats from Anderson has become a rite of passage, someone who worked on the business side of Anderson’s company said. She added, “It’s almost become like a punchline.” (In a statement to Insider, a representative for Anderson called the claims “false.”)
