Part of being a celebrity includes being and remaining in shape. Many celebrities, especially actors, always have to stay in shape for any upcoming movie roles. Therefore, they solicit the help of personal trainers to get their fitness journeys on the right track.
Gwyneth Paltrow is among those celebrities who’ve taken their health and lifestyle seriously. The star is not only known for her over-the-top diet but also for making her personal trainer Tracy Anderson famous. Read on to find out how Paltrow was able to get the world interested in her trainer.
Gwyneth Paltrow is a jack of all trades
Most people might know Gwyneth Paltrow for her various movies. Over the years, Paltrow has had her hands full with several projects. She is known for her work in films such as A Perfect Murder, Emma, Glee, Proof, and Shakespeare in Love, which earned her an Emmy award in 1998.
Paltrow isn’t new to the entertainment industry, either. She is the daughter of actress Blythe Danner and the late Bruce Paltrow, who was a director. Steven Spielberg is her godfather.
Paltrow’s mother is still actively involved in the acting business, and the 48-year-old actress has expressed her total support for her mother.
She is also known for playing Pepper Potts in the Iron Man franchise. In the films, she plays Tony Stark’s love interest and eventual wife. She also made a cameo in the Avengers: Infinity War and the Avengers: Endgame, where she fights alongside Iron Man and other superheroes.
Although Paltrow is a highly recognized actress, she is perhaps more famous for her lifestyle and wellness company Goop. When her father died from cancer, Paltrow decided to start living healthy. This is how she formed Goop. Goop is mostly known for its overpriced and unique products.
In her fitness and health journey, she also began trying to get into shape, and that is how she formed a friendship with celebrity personal trainer Tracy Anderson.
Tracy Anderson isn’t new to a star-studded clientele
When Anderson was growing up, all she wanted was to become a ballet dancer. When she turned 18, the fitness guru left home New York-bound looking for greener pastures in the ballet industry. Unfortunately, she didn’t cut it as a ballet dancer.
Anderson relentlessly soldiered on and decided to take a different yet almost related path, fitness training. With more than two decades worth of experience in the industry under her belt, Anderson has managed to make a name for herself as one of the best personal trainers out there today.
If you don’t believe it, then you can check her client list. Anderson is friends with several celebrities, many of whom she works closely with at the gym. Top of her client list includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Madonna, Stella McCartney, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Lopez.
Anderson is now the owner of a fitness empire valued at a whopping $35 million. Among her work tools, the fitness expert specializes in gyms and gym equipment, nutritional supplements, and sportswear. Anderson might be wildly successful and famous right now, but she probably has Gwyneth Paltrow to thank.
How Gwyneth Paltrow’s personal trainer became famous
As mentioned above, Anderson’s clientele is pretty star-studded. Although she has trained many stars, not many have been kind enough to relay her expertise to their legions of fans. However, Paltrow was very much candid about the impact that Anderson has had on her fitness journey.
When people began noticing how fit Paltrow was, they began asking how she got into great shape. According to Work and Money, Paltrow credited the fitness guru as the reason why she looked so good.
Since the mention, Anderson’s career skyrocketed and has been on top with no end in sight.
