Would You Join a Gym Owned by Gwyneth Paltrow?

Restaurants and bars are common celebrity pursuits, and word is that Gwyneth Paltrow is trying to add fitness to the list of business ventures backed by celebs. A famous name attached to a new business creates a whole lot of buzz, and if the product is strong enough, there's a good chance the project will have staying power.

We've heard Gwyneth's constant praise of her personal trainer, Tracy Anderson, and the actress has shared some of the fitness tricks she uses to keep her booty firm. The two blondes have been successful in collaborating to shape Gwyneth's body, and if their rumored plan to open a chain of gyms together is true, they'll turn their workout partnership into a business one.

Same think as anp6. Read this page, there's a post by Tracy's former business partner. Very enlightening. http://gabsmash.blogspot.com/2007/07/who-is-this-tracy-anderson.html?commentPage=2 I like Gwyneth Paltrow, I hope everything will turn to be fine for her and that she won't find herself paying Tracy's debts.

No. One, I'm not joining any gym. And two, I'm with GlowingMoon on the 15 lb free weights.

No and I'd actually say that one of the top reasons would be because its owned by her.

No, I don't subscribe to Gwyneth and Tracy's fitness philosophy either. Tracy's idea of weight training is laughable. For my upper body, I lift up to 15lbs of free weights for some of my exercises. Yes, I typed that correctly -- 15lbs. I'm a petite hourglass (105 lbs, size 2). However, I want to clarify that I'm not scrawny (I have natural C-cup breasts, and a small waist). I think I have a better body than Tracy and Gwyneth, if I do say so myself. Now I think they both have nice bodies, but nothing overwhelming impressive. JMHO.

I don't agree with Tracy Anderson's methods AT ALL. Seriously, she says women shouldn't lift over 3 lbs (WTF??) and that you need to do 80-100 reps to get results. Sorry, but I have a pretty good body myself and it got that way doing things my way, not by paying $5K a month for some woman to tell me to eat 1000 calories a day and do 80 gazillion leg lifts a day.

NO - overpriced, pretentious and annoying. I can't STAND Gwyneth, either. she seems to delight in living in an ivory tower, which I think is really inappropriate for the current economic climate.

The price is ridiculous. You can get results for a lot less.

Haha, if the machines were better and the membership fee is reasonable but thats probably not going to happen...

If it were a convenient, decently priced/located, up-to-date, friendly and clean gym I don't care who owns it. It it matches all my criteria, you'll see me there.

Heck yes I would! Paltrow looks amazing, toned but not overly muscular!

I would join, sure, if I wanted to pay 5k for a 3 month membership. (I inquired about the price from TA's studio). I am glad for Gwyneth to have found a workout that has "transformed" her body. However, she doesn't look any different to me. www.judiesjuice.wordpress.com.

Nope

Her gym would only adhere to philosophies and methods that she believes in. If they work for her, fine. But they seem too narrow-minded for me.

I was interested in Tracy Anderson's workouts, but then read a few articles about her history of running business scams and advocating unsafe diets and exercise programs. No thanks. http://www.indianapolismonthly.com/article.aspx?id=18612 http://www.celebitchy.com/30553/gwyneth_paltrow_wants_to_launch_a_gym_chain/ http://www.fitceleb.com/node/4764 http://brianstpierretraining.com/?p=258
