Jennifer Lopez and Gwyneth Paltrow redefine feminine role models, says their trainer

3 years ago

Who's on your list of role models? Celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, author of "Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method: The Weight-Loss Kick-Start that Makes Perfection Possible," feels that Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez deserve top listings. 

"They are women I believe my audience should look up to," she told Page Six. "We need role models where women can be out on their own, they can be moms, they can have businesses and they can be sexy."

To help women achieve their health and exercise goals, Tracy has created a series of fitness DVDs, including her Method beginning weight loss program and Tracy Anderson Method: Post-Pregnancy Workout.

When it comes to the "sexy" element, Tracy wants to redefine what it means to have it all. She argues that women shouldn't be required to do the "dress for success" path of toned-down makeup, matching blazer and skirt and conventional career.

“Why do we have to wear no makeup, put on a suit… to have a career? We shouldn’t have to forget about our femininity," said Tracy.
