Tracy Anderson The Method for Beginners


These workouts definitely ARE for beginners- it’s a basic as Tracy gets but it’s not a bad thing. Even for seasoned pros it’s nice to get some new moves and be reminded of what your form should be- as those who have tried some of Tracy’s more advanced DVDs will know that she offers little guidance.

Workout 1
Time: 12 minutes
Areas worked: Arms and Legs
Equipment needed: chair, 1lb weights

These moves are easy, with low reps and Tracy really coaches you through. The structure is as follows: Warm up stretches, standing leg moves with a chair then weighted arms.


Time: 1 minute
Equipment needed: Ankle weights, wrist weights

For the cardio section Tracy has you step touching the moves and uses ankle weights to increase the calorie burn since you’re not jumping around. It’s good in that it’s different to all of her other cardio.

Workout 2
Time: 30 minutes
Areas worked: Arms, legs and stomach
Equipment needed: Chair, 1b weights

The structure of this workout is as follows: warm up stretches, free arms, weighted arms, standing leg moves with a chair and then standing abs.

This is a longer workout then workout 1 and Tracy expands upon some of the moves she demonstrates in the first workout. Strangely enough even though this is a beginner work out some of the moves are actually harder than some of her more advanced workouts because Tracy really talks you though it so your form is correct and you’re really focusing on what you’re doing.

Here are the notes that I made of the leg moves while watching this workout for the first time:
Foot on chair circle round 20 20
Foot behind diagonal across 20 20
Turn chair round knee into elbow and extend 20 20
Chair back to the side inverted kick out 20 20

    This sounds and looks like a great workout plan to try out! One thing to keep in mind would be to make sure the proper equipment is in place, such as mats, weights, etc, to keep you protected and safe. Plus, in my opinion, it helps to make any workout more efficient and productive. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Surleen,

      It’s cool that you’re doing this dvd, is this your first Tracy Anderson workout you’ve tried? I’m not sure how many calories are burnt in this DVD, it’s also difficult to calculate the number of calories burnt as that will differ per person, I think there are some heart rate monitors that are more sophisticated that can help you work out how many calories you burn so you could try wearing one of them and seeing what it says? Do you need to calculate the number of calories you burn in a day?

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂
