Bethenny Frankel-from broke to buff

The business side of fitness has been very good for reality star and natural food chef Bethenny Frankel. She started filming season 3 of her wildly successful reality show “Bethenny Ever After” in NYC last month. Bethenny also shot the pilot for her own talk show back in June.
The New York Times best selling author just launched Skinnygirl Sangria, and in November will launch Skinnygirl Face and Body, a skin-care line that will be available in Wal-Mart.

To think that five years ago she was broke! In a recent Us Magazine interview, she stated, “I had negative $50,000 in income on my 2007 taxes.” Last year Bethenny banked $55 million* in cash, she has reached the pinnacle of financial comfort and success, and she credits vinyasa yoga for creating peace in her life.
Currently, she stays away from what she calls “fear-based workouts” which she defines as intense cardio or workouts that leave you doused in sweat.

The most beautiful woman in the world is also the fittest

I’m not sure how La Lopez mustered up the strength to train for the Nautica Malibu Triathlon (½-mile swim, 18-mile bike ride and 4-mile run) seven months after giving birth to twins. Nevertheless, in recognition of J-Lo’s People Magazine’s “Most Beautiful Woman in The World” recognition, check out the video clip of her training for the triathlon with Self magazine’s editor in chief Lucy Danziger.

J-Lo’s stunning looks and physical transformation from her days as a fly girl is a result of discipline, dedication, determination–and a really good colorist and facial moisturizer. Jennifer is a true fitness aficionado who has dabbled in Krav Maga, Zumba, TRX, yoga, pilates, running, swimming, and the Tracy Anderson method.

Tracy Anderson wants to “wake up” your bored muscles


Choreographer, entrepreneur, mom, and future reality TV star (the CW is developing a docusoap show around Tracy in collaboration with Ryan Seacreast Productions). Tracy Anderson is the architect behind Madonna’s arms, Gwyneth Paltrow’s hot mama body, and Shakira’s belly dancing abs. She has created an interesting business model for herself based on a theory of “small muscles.”

“I have over a decade of research and development on why we can’t get rid of problem areas or mom’s who think they are doomed and cant’ get their pre baby body back,” said Tracy, during our recent interview at the NFL’s “Fit for You” 5K race in Washington, DC.

According to Tracy, we have over 600 muscles in our body and often the smaller muscles are not targeted during workouts. For example, Tracy believes that when we run and or cycle indoors (she’s not a fan of either) we utilize our large muscles and as a result we have no reason to train smaller muscles. “Muscle atrophy starts in our 20s and by the time we reach out 40s, we have we’ve developed hamstring atrophy.”

Her technique:
Tracy has over 3000 moves, which she sequences together and changes every ten days. She lays all out in her new book: Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method that includes a DVD. “Buy the book/DVD combo and stay connected.”
