Tracy Anderson Video Streaming for Beginners Week 2

Trainer Breakdownimg_6262

This week’s breakdown is taken by lovely Maria Davidson who cued Tracy in the class. This week’s breakdown is really thorough and also includes details for the abs section which is sometimes left without a breakdown. Like Stacey in week one, Maria offers modifications for the moves. These are for the standing legs section and part of the floor leg workout. Maria is so graceful, flexible and good at moving, and really involves her whole body so it’s really inspiring to work out to and makes you realise that no part of you is static in any of the moves, everything’s really involved, which makes it all the more difficult! Not just physically but mentally you have to be so much more aware and not switch off.

Time: 49 minutes
Areas worked: Arms, legs and stomach
Equipment needed: 1lb weights hand weights, 1lb ankle weights, extra support for your knees if you need it

This workout has progressed from week one in that Tracy employs the use of ankle weights, although not all the way through the leg series like she does in her advanced masterclasses and she only wears an ankle weight on the working leg, this is until you get to the abs section where you have an ankle weight on each leg. Like the first beginners class the arms are quite slow and basic and the legs aren’t too challenging. I like that the leg section begins with standing legs which is a nice variation and really means you have to work on your balance. In the breakdown section Maria suggests that you can use something to support yourself while doing these moves which I foolishly sneered at but when following the moves up to tempo in class there were a couple of times when I had to drop the leg I was supposed to be working back down. Even though the moves are all pretty easy, there are a couple of moves that are mean on the knees! So you may want to get some extra support for them; there’s one where you’re shifting backwards and forwards from balancing on your knee and another where you have to do that horrible swivel move on your knee. The abs moves aren’t immediately obvious as there isn’t any crunches or standing abs, but they’re working during the section when you’re leaning back on your forearms and lifting your legs in front of you and the leg move near the end where you’re pulsing in and out. Out of all of the areas worked you’ll feel it most on your hips.

The playlist is quite fun, it includes an upbeat Avril Lavigne track and old skool Britney.

I really enjoyed this class, unfortunately due to a health condition I’m not able to regularly do as much exercise as I’d like to so when I do a longer workout I do find that I have to take some breaks (especially when I did the Transform series- that was killer!) but this was actually really easy and I didn’t have to take any breaks, it was also much easier than level 1 of Metarmorphosis.

    Hi – I don’t see where you can sign up for streaming for only a month. I see there is a 3-month minimum for $90 a month. I have tried the two-week free trial and really loved it through Health magazine last year and would like to try the streaming again, but I just want to make sure if after a month I don’t want it any longer, I can cancel and that it won’t be difficult to do so or to contact customer service without my credit card being automatically charged.

      Hi Marina, they must’ve stopped the one month trial option. (I just had a look to check) I know people have lots of problems with payments and cancelling things on the Tracy website, I’m not sure what the situation is like at the moment, of course they would be in the wrong if they continued to charge you after you had cancelled. I don’t really know what to suggest- sorry! If you enjoyed it for 2 weeks maybe you’ll enjoy it for 3 months? Do you think you’d prefer streaming to any of her DVD workouts?
