Who is this Tracy Anderson?



Quite a few of you brilliant, attractive readers of Gabsmash have a lot to say about the Tracy Anderson workout post tacked a couple of months ago.

It is soo worthwhile to read what some of her "anonymous" clients have to say, and boy, do they have a lot to say. Someone needs to step up. Very interesting indeed.

"I was a client of Tracy Anderson Studios in Fishers also. Her program does work, but don't believe everything that you hear about Tracy and her business. It is true that she did leave her clients in Fishers overnight...just took the machines and our money and left. She claims to have been a student at the Julliard School of Dance, but come to find out she was there for only 3 months and then left." Anon


It gets better....

I was a client of Tracy Anderson, I absolutely loved it. Her regime really worked. I completely understand why she had to close the Fishers studio down. I'm very proud of her and all her success. It's too bad that people that are bad-mouthing her are probably clients that couldn't get into the studio or the reformer was obviously to difficult for them. Tracy is a very dedicated, creative individual with a great sense of what her clients really need. She's very professional in her line of work. She has wonderful skills in dance and it's too bad people can't appreciate the efforts that she has put forth for many of her clients. It's ridiculous that people have to act childish and waste their time on the computer bashing this amazing woman. She has done so much for so many and gotten little respect in return and yet she still keeps on pursuing her dream of helping others reach their goals.

I think we all agree why she left: to succeed in LA. Understandably so!!! We were excited for her when she made several trips to England and NY to train Madonna and Gwyneth. WE wanted to hear all about "it" when she returned. We are not the bad people here, tho. She is. All she had to do was be up front, honest and tell us that she cannot keep up with studios in Fishers and LA. She should have given us a heads up on a closing date of the studio and be prepared to reimburse us. But no! She milked us until she could support herself and family out in LA. She lied and pulled the equipment out bit by bit and said it needed repair. We saw through those lies. You, obviously, do not pay her. You probably have some kind of "understanding" with her and do not have to pay. You have something she wants and vice versa. You could be one of the reporters who have written about her.You have no idea what kind of money she has taken from us. Don't put her clients down thinking her reformers were too difficult, etc. There are many very fit women and men who have been her clients. She had made many friends here, but turned her back on them. We really dont care to be computer bashing her. Thats not our choice. She should do the right thing, come back to Fishers, set up a meeting with all her clients, settle the money and we can all go forth with our lives. But she won't do that. Even her lawyer has not contacted any of us. I think its great for any person to "pursue their dream" but not while they are stepping and stealing from everyone along the way. Keep your wallet close to you!!

FUNONBELIEVERS, you really need a reality check! I was a client of the LA studio where I eventually found out about her lying about ever having had a New York studio (try and find history of it, it never existed! She finally took it off the website when people were asking about it)), then the Indiana one closes and she takes everyone's money with no intent on returning! Try contacting LS Cleaning Services in Los Angeles where she never paid the hard-working hispanic men who came in at 5AM to clean the studio! Try contacting the dancers in her "new DVD" who had to threaten to sue her before they got paid! Do some research on her background and find out how Tracy Anderson Studios was originally supposed to be "East of LA", but she had to change it because she was sued by her investor, Deanna Grabill. Read about the lawsuit where her old dance studio endeavor flopped and her landlords were awarded $450,000 dollars and Tracy Anderson and her husband filed for bankruptcy! Have someone go in and actually see this "computer generated system" that makes the programs - it doesn't exist! She is a liar, and her "new regime" is just a juvenile, medicore twist on pilates and her "Hybrid Reformer" is basically the same thing as any high-tech pilates reformer with a generic twist. Read about her partner, Glynn Barber, who buried his Explex Extreme park in Indiana - not to mention rumors of their strange physical relationship. I could go on for another 5 pages of the astonishing amount of skeletons in Tracy Anderson's closet, but you get the picture!! Tracy Anderson is a FRAUD HACK who gets by on her false charm and SEVERELY AIRBRUSHED PICTURES!!!!

Wow... I thought I was the only one who had issues with Tracy Anderson Studios. I started to see these magazine articles pop up and wondered, "Is this the same woman?" I thought she was completely incompetent and a total airhead to boot. Everything she promised turned out to be a lie. And now I understand from friends who are still on their last legs there, that she is never there and ony cares about her celebrity clients. She is stuck in a lease in LA and will ditch all of those clients just as quickly as she did the Indiana ones!

Anonymous said...

I am not one to bash either, but the 3rd comment seems to be true... In Los Angeles, everyone knows everyone and you somehow get the truth from those you trust most. And my very good friends, who are good people, can abide by what has been said here. Tracy Anderson may not be a horrible person, but she needs to be held accountable for her lying in the name of getting peoples' money. It's not going to be a pretty site when the truth spreads (as it seems to be doing now) and all of these magazines who have articles on her change the story. She should get out now and handle the damage she has done and is doing.

Please remember that Tracy has a business partner named Glynn Barber who is also her "partner in crime." I feel terribly for all of Tracy's Fishers, IN clients.

His estranged wife is trying to recover some of their life savings that went into Tracy's studio in 2005 and 2006. He is an integral part of the reason Deana Grabil was pushed out of East of LA.

Anonymous said...

I'm glad I did some checking before I decided to give Tracy my business. "Partners in Crime" That's a great way to put it. Glynn Barber and Tracy Anderson were not only business partners, but share a home in Noblesville Indiana, they are engaged while they are both still married. How's that for great character. GB's wife filled for divorce after she found out about the affair. That's a matter of public record and GB brags about his relationship with Tracy. It's also a matter of public record that Glynn Barber has lawsuits pending against him in Portland, Indiana. Sounds like they are the perfect couple. Sounds like both have no regard for being honest in their business endeavors. These people aren't untouchable. I can't figure out why all of your complaints aren't lawsuits against her? I also did a check with the BBB and they have no complaints made against her??? What are you people waiting for?

Anonymous said...

Dear last blogger, what about Tracy's current husband, Eric Anderson? Does he know about Glynn and their relationship? What about her son? I've seen all of them at the studio in Los Angeles. This is so disheartening to learn. To all, I have caught her in a web of lies since I met her. By the way, she NEVER measured me and I didn't loose any weight! The personal menu's are a joke.

Anonymous said...

I don't think Glynn and Tracy have given him the entire story. He is probably misled like everyone else. That or he doesn't want to see what's infront of him. Like I said it's public knowledge that Glynn and Tracy have shared a home in Nobelsville together. In fact rumor has it that GB stays with Tracy in LA and NYC. How could Eric not know?? Sad when there are children involved. If they don't have any regard for their own families, then why would they care about their "clients" or "partners"? Back to the topic. I don't understand, if all the complaints are true, why aren't you people filing complaints with the BBB and/or seeking court action? If someone screwed me and took thousands of $'s , I wouldn't hesitate to seek legal action. At the very least I would file a complaint with the BBB to get things going.....

To the above: stay tuned!!

To all of you who don't know the Tracy, Glynn and Eric situation...he is the deal. Tracy and Eric are still married, despite what Tracy was telling everyone in Indiana. She NEVER filed for divorce. Glynn is going through a very nasty divorce. Eric and Glynn know about each other and neither one seem to care. Eric is a fantastic dad and will do anything for his son. He quit his job in Indiana to move to LA just so that he could be with his son. Tracy left Indiana and Eric and moved to LA with their son. Eric has no say...what Tracy wants Tracy gets. Eric doesn't care what Tracy does with Glynn. Glynn has taken care of bills for Tracy and Eric. So, the answer is yes, Eric and Glynn know about each other. It is a fact that Tracy and Glynn live together in Indiana and California. They are a couple, bottom line. As for the BBB, many have filed reports and nothing has happened. I'm not sure why. Stay tuned to this entire saga, I'm sure there is lots more to come.

Also, I "bought" her last dvd when she was in Indiana, and still have not gotten it!! It has been months!

Anonymous said...

Ive read all of these and I encourage everyone to contact the magazines that she has been published in and share your story. You can easily do it by googling "letter to the editor" and typing in the magazine name or by just going to their website and finding a "contact us" link. I also say contact your local TV news sources and see if someone will investigate and do a story! She is making money off of these celebrities and getting all of this "prestige" and nothing will happen if people don't come out with the truth and get it into these magazines and news sources. I look forward to seeing her being called out and having justice for everyone wronged. Kudos to everyone having courage and rising up! Besides, I think Gwyneth and Madonna will be SICKENED once they find out what the truth is.

I say yes to the above comment! Also contact places like the smoking gun (www.smokinggun.com) and TMZ and people who specialize in uncovering scandalous and corrupt people. I can't believe she actually made it into the public's eye without any of this being revealed???!!! I guess it is now though ;-)

Not Fooled said...

I have personally met Eric Anderson and he is a good person and father. I also know that Glynn Barber has profited just as much off of everybody's money as Tracy has. He has left Indiana because he has screwed a lot of people there just like Tracy. He is in the middle of a nasty divorce, but there is a good reason...

Anonymous said...

To Not fooled. If you know your spouse is a crook,liar,thief and a cheat & choose to follow her half way around the country and expose your child to her lover/fiancée(GB did purchase a nice ring for her) while she's still married to you (better than a soap opera) that makes you a fool putting his needs first before his childs! I feel sorry for the children involved. They are the victims at the mercy of their screwed up parents. If there have been complaints filed with the BBB why isn't there a record of it???

Anonymous said...

Tracy Anderson took a lot of money to design specialized programs for each of our particular needs....yeah right! If you opened your eyes, you could see that the person on the reformer two spaces from you was doing the exact program. And, as for measuring....come on, pull the tape measure a little tighter and we'll all lose 15 inches ...sure, no weight loss, no different fit to clothes but yet... "oh, you lost 15 inches".....NOT. Just give me the same amount of money and I'll eat a bunch of junk food, pop my pimples and get new hair extensions monthly. And, did I mention those $400 jeans...Oh, hello.....Better Business Bureau, I'd like to file a complaint. The class action lawsuit is in progress.

For even more insight and facts about Tracy Anderson check out the posts on GABSMASH March 19. Close to 40 posts from clients who have been taken advantage of by Tracy and her partner Glynn Barber. Every point mentioned from lies, deceit,past history of other poor business practices, taking thousands & thousands of dollars from over 150 active Pilates clients and even more inactive clients at the Fishers, IN studio...the list goes on and it is all indeed true. Hopefully her LA clients and the "celebrity" connections she has made will keep their eyes and ears open. Tracy is very smooth.

Copied from the March 19th blog.

Just to let you know you can file a complaint with the Indiana Attorney General office for the amount owed to you. I talked with them yesterday and yes each one of us has to file an individual complaint, but as soon as they start receiving them they will get working on it. They sounded very positive about it. Interestingly, they pursued a case against a health club in Fishers that closed. The documents are dated January 2007. Pretty much the same scenario, the guy closed down and did not reimburse anyone. Here is the link to the case. http://atgindsha01.atg.in.gov/cpd/docs/enforcement/SteveCarter-367681-1.pdf Note that he was also disciplined for continuing to charge people's accounts after he closed. I know Tracy did this to some of you on monthly debits and you had to cancel your cards. Please be sure to note this in your complaint if this happened to you as well as the $$ figure of the sessions owed to you. The link to the complaint form for the Indiana Attorney General is: http://www.in.gov/attorneygeneral/consumer/pub/complaint.pdf It is pretty easy to fill out. The only thing you might not know is exact name of her firm: East of LA, LLC dba Tracy Anderson Studios, LLC with Tracy Anderson being the person dealt with. Please also attach whatever documentation you have such as your contract, credit card slip, credit card or checking statement, e-mails from Tracy or her attorney and anything elso you may feel is relevant. To review the health club regulations from the Indiana Attorney General please go to this link: http://www.indianaconsumer.com/consumer_guide/health_clubs.asp Also if this should happen to you LA people in the future, here is your link to the Los Angeles County District Attorney complaint form that you would need to file: http://da.co.la.ca.us/pdf/CPDform.pdf

I wish you all luck in getting your money back.

I too was a Fishers client for 2 1/2 years with many prepaid sessions remaining when the doors closed for "maintenance." To all who say "Why haven't you filed a complaint with the BBB?" The BBB website states, "If you haven't already attempted to resolve your complaint directly with the company, you should do so BEFORE filing a complaint with the BBB." I will wait until all avenues have been exhausted to get my money back, and then I will file a complaint. I have nothing positive to say about Tracy and her business practices. DO NOT GIVE THIS WOMAN ANY UP FRONT MONEY. You will regret it as many of us do.

I have learned more and more as this all starts to be pieced together. Ms. Anderson always reported vehemently that she never had any of her photos airbrushed. I learned today that this is not true and that infact her photos have been stretched and airbrushed. This is just one more untruth that shows Ms. Anderson's lack of ethics and character. She misleads potential and current clients into thinking she looks the way she does with no help. What a poor message to send to clients who are really trying to become the healthiest they can!

30lbs less...but I tell ya, I've never seen a bigger liar in my life!!! And, in the year I went, I was never measured once after the initial measuring...For those who the programs didnt work for...sorry...but I think it worked for me because I was HIGHLY regimented...but now that I know the concepts, anyone can do this! Hybrid Reformer my butt...she just copied off of any concept out there...Tracy is NOT brilliant!!! What was funny was the 5 times I saw Tracy in the year I was there...she was always "blaming" Glynn for everything...I wonder if Glynn ever knew how two faced she is to him! She just wanted his "supposed" $$$...Tracy purchased a TON of equipment from an unnamed Pilates manufacturer...after she talked them into all the addons and a bunch of "freebee's", she had them send many Reformers to a hotel in LA...she wouldnt claim that she opened the packages so she didnt have to pay for shipping..had the hotel folks do it...alledgedly "took" all the optoinal equipment and freebee's and then asked that the machines be returned...she still owes this company major $$$$ for the shipping costs and essentially what would be "theft" of their items...she is not allowed to purchase from this company needless to say...and she's crying about how everyone in Indy hates her??? Are you FREAKING KIDDING ME???? We may not be the big wigs of LA..but, we work hard for our $$$ and expect not to be screwed over!! Listen guys...I am a firm believer in a word...KARMA....Tracy Anderson will get hers...15 minutes of fame...and she will be out her ass like last season's Manolo's!!! Then, maybe Eric will be a man and dump her the same time Glynn and his short man syndrome finds his next victim!! I'm sure whoever wrote "Oh, Tracy is so great...blah blah" was Tracy herself...OH...and...does anyone know what happened to Tommy!!! WHAT A FREAK!!!!!! Guy didnt know Pilates from a hole in the wall...

I've noticed the LA studio is pretty dirty all of the time..the bathrooms are a total mess..this for a small studio with a very upscale clientele...it can't be crazy expensive just to have a cleaning service come in daily...esp. since the traffic in the studio has skyrocketed since the recent press clippings. Tracy is never there, but I don't care...I like the trainer Andi...who I believe makes most of the new programs for clients. Tracy won't bail on the LA clients...LA is the foundation for building her business and opening more locations..which is obviously what she wants. There has been talk of her opening a Santa Monica location..but that's been "just weeks away from opening" for a while. Also they recently raised the price to $500 a month. Stay Tuned.

fitgirl said...

To the L.A client who believes Tracy won't close the L.A. location or screw you all out of money...buyer beware. Fortunate for you, you pay month to month. She required us all to pay up front to the tune of thousands. I was told repeatedly that the Indianapolis studio wouldn't be shut down either and look what happened. Tracy's foundation for building her business is to take people's money and run. If you wonder why the studio is so dirty read the comments above and you will note Tracy did not pay the cleaning people. Tracy has been so fortunate to have had dedicated employees in the past but beware, she seems to drive them away by making promises she never keeps. As for the new studio opening, not if we Indiana clients have anything to say about it! She still owes us (100 plus) thousands of dollars each! We may not be celebrities but we aren't hicks and will not go away! Tracy is a phenomenal liar so watch out! She is a charmer and can talk her way out of anything. Do not believe 90% of what she says!

To the LA member, we were the foundation of YOUR studio and we are no more!! I remember her standing in front of a group of us saying that this was her home and this Indy studio means so much to her, this is where she wants to raise her son...blah, blah, blah! All lies. We liked our trainers too. Glad you have Andi, but thats all you have. Tracy doesn't exist.

Let's try and stick to the facts about Tracy and not resort to name calling. There is more than enough to talk about without calling her dirty names.

Anonymous said...

I agree. Though Tracy has done horrible things, I think it comes from a place of complete emptiness inside. How else could you treat people so horribly? She got herself in so deep that I don't think she can make good decisions anymore. I had to laugh, though, at the first comment above. What kind of smoke are you inhaling??? I've known tracy for almost 6 years and was involved in her studio almost from the beginning. Her clients in Indy worked really hard, and most of all, they trusted her. And..there was NO problem getting into the studio, even at the end. She would give new clients spots while older clients had major issues scheduling. But... that's beyond the point, you certainly are entitled to your opinion and if she was good to you, then so be it. On another note, I'm not positive that Tracy Anderson LLC is a dba. I was under the impression that she had two separate LLC's and I'm not sure that a dba is anything other than a name. So..might want to verify that. I hope the LA person is right about TA not treating them like she did Indy but I seriously doubt that will be the case. And..I agree with the Fishers client. Indy was her first studio. The only reason LA exists is because Indy allowed her to be successful for a time. That was kind of a nasty, unneccessary comment in my opinion. Keep out the gossip and stick to the facts. Truth is always revealed in due time. Let's hope someday in the future Tracy hits the wall she needs to, to finally bring change. Because, I don't believe the reason she stares at herself in the mirror, is dying for attention and is hungry for material things is because she thinks so highly of herself. It's because she's empty and hurt. And that's sad in itself so why resort to belittling her more. Just focus on the goal which is to hopefully recoup some of the investment that was taken from you all.

Anonymous said...

To the above, you are right. She is empty and needs help. We should stick to the facts and that alone shows we have been wronged and should be refunded 100% of our money. Tracy needs professional psychiatric help. I am not excusing her behavior in any way. She will most certainly pay for this if not financially then with her reputation. It is sad though that her child will also pay because he has been brought into a very chaotic life with no stability. The truth will set us free, that is all we need!

I have known Tracy for many years and while she may embellish the truth a little, or tell a small lie here or there she is not a fraud, a cheat, a thief or a bad selfish empty person. Every one of you people who have written on this blog has lied. It is a fact of life, everyone lies.

I am not saying that you people who claim to have paid for sessions or classes and that you have not received them or your money back are not telling the truth about that. Tracy knows that there are clients who have paid and are due return of payments or sessions. That is why the email was sent by her attorney to find out whom and what each of you is owed.

It was under advice from her attorney that she had to temporarily close the Indy location. There was time periods when Tracy was not the sole owner or even an owner and in control of the studio. Tracy is a very poor business manager, and on the advice and the management of others the cost at the Indy location skyrocketed. Things that were supposed to be taken care of, Tracy found out were not taken care of.

Tracy struggled with tried to get CA up a running and there were several issues with that situation that you people do not know all the facts. Even though you have and will continue to attest otherwise. Tracy was trying to earn money by doing her private sessions with high profile clientele to help fund the CA and the Indy locations and make both studios work. This of course took a great deal of her time and efforts. This too was making her unavailable for studio time with clients in both CA and Indy and not allowing her to try and manage the business operations. This too is part of the reason why she sent the email regarding the decision to close the Indy studio.

She did make mistakes, and things like measuring people or making sure that her or other people’s employees measured people did not happen as they should have. Did people’s programs not get updated on time? Probably, but that again is one of the reasons she did feel she was doing her Indy clients a disservice right now, and why she did want to only temporarily shut down so she could revamp and try to get a handle on managing the studio.

Tracy is trying to work this out with her clients and I urge you to contact her attorney. She is working with authorities to settle this the right way.

Contact her attorney at: Anyone interested in filing a claim against the Tracy Anderson Studio in Fishers should contact, Church Church Hittle and Antrim law firm at info@cchalaw.com.

It is interesting to note that many of these posting are really just about trying to hurt Tracy. To run her down and try to ruin her, all under the guise of trying to help others either get their money back, (which by the active client list they were sent emails of who to contact) or to prevent someone from making a mistake. I find it very interesting that many of the post sound like the same one over and over again. Posted by the same person? Also I did note that one smart poster did question all the posts is as what is true on the internet or not. What is really fact and what is someone’s twist of the situation for their own motives.

Some of this sounds like so much jealousy, or some other mental reason to harbor such venom and hate. And then to gossip about her personal life, which totally has nothing to do with ones claim for reformer sessions/classes or money back. It is just mean and small.

Anonymous said...

As I had stated in one of my comments earlier on, all she had to do was be UP FRONT! Don't lie and say that the machines needed repairing. We were all speculating that she was intending to shut the studio down. I don't believe for 1 minute that she was intending on refunding us. All this bad publicity is making her do that.

Anonymous said...

If the blogs contained here were about jealousy then why have three major television stations and the Indianapolis star covered Tracy Anderson and her business practices in the past two days? Why does she have a mugshot if she is not a criminal? Telling a white lie is one thing (which I don't believe is right) but Tracy Anderson did more than tell white lies! I agree that this is not about Tracy's personal life. I don't care to know what she does behind closed doors. Unfortunately Ms. Anderson is now in a position where people are out to get her because they feel they have been wronged-and they have. I have posted two comments on here-this being my third. I know of at least 10 others who have posted one comment each. If you are such a close friend of Tracy's, please get her the help she needs. She really has a problem with what is reality and what is moral. Interesting that no one has heard boo from the attorneys until the media blitz on what Tracy has done has taken off. Further, there are plenty of people who have started businesses and failed. The way you choose to handle that failure is your choice alone. Tracy did not handle this matter in a moral way at all!

I hope you love bread pudding... and tear tatts on your right eye... MUCH LOVE... NOBLESVILLE HIGH SCHOOL....

"I have known Tracy for many years and while she may embellish the truth a little, or tell a small lie here or there she is not a fraud, a cheat, a thief or a bad selfish empty person. Every one of you people who have written on this blog has lied." Interesting post! Makes me wonder who you are?
"Tracy is trying to work this out with her clients" Duh! Because she got caught and her clients went after her to get THEIR money back. A person doesn't end up being arrested for telling "half truths" So when the judge ordered her arrest (which is public knowledge) was he lying too? How many legal judgements does she have? I've lost count. Oh and if you have judgements against you because you took peoples money, I believe that makes you a thief. Her mistake was in thinking the Indiana clients would just cut their losses and move on. As far as her personal life goes. If you want that kept private then don't walk around in public with your boyfriend and brag about your relationship. Anyone who has met them would agree that they both like to brag. Both she and her "boyfriend" made it public knowledge that they were a couple. So they can blame themselves for any publicity they receive about their relationship. What I'd like to know is where does her "boyfriend" fit into this scenario? Does anyone remember them mentioning that Glenn was creating/making her reformer?? Oh and this is my first post. I've just been reading and taking it all in. I agree,it's a sad situation for all involved! I think that woman needs some serious help.

By the way, here's the latest link to the Indy Star.

For all those in IN, their will be an amazing pilates,fitness,wellness type center opening up soon in Fishers w/ one of Tracy's former instructors and another highly reputable and trustworthy woman with experience in wellness and skincare. Her instructors were victims here too as many were not paid, not given the promised deal as far as training or benefits and were put in the horrible positon of being left in the aftermath of her dishonesty w/ people they care about. They showed up for work the day it was locked up also.

Hopefully, she will be held accountable this time.

Tracy Anderson is without a doubt, a sick sick person. She does need clinical help. If you are around her enough, or if you know someone who has been, you would agree. The problem is getting her to admit that she's sick. She listens to NOBODY! She thinks she knows it all. She is a slut. She was caught by her husband sleeping with a nieghbor years before the Glynn thing ever happened. That won't be the last, either. She needs help. The girl has absolutely, positively NO remorse for the things she's done. Her publicist will try and spin this into a sob story that TA had no idea what was going on in the Fishers studio, but that's all BS. She will blame others until the end of time and never take one bit of responsibility for anything she's done. That's who she is. All the success she seems to be having in LA and with Paltrow and Madonna will eventually falter because she CANNOT maintain normalcy for long. And she knows it. When she starts sensing that people are figuring her out, she runs away. That's just what she does. I'd love to know who wrote that kind blog about her, because they either don't know her or they are being paid by her to say it. I wouldn't be surprised if it was Tracy herself that wrote it. I shit you not. Nobody likes her enough to write that. Her mother included. Trust me on that.

former client in fishers said...

For those of you who don't know yet, one of her former instructors, Sean Bartram has already opened a studio in Carmel off of Carmel Drive. The studio has been open since last Fall and many of 'us' former Tracy Anderson clients work out there. He is an amazing trainer and only left Tracy because she stopped paying him for a matter of weeks last summer as she did with Ashley who quit in August as well. She eventually paid up w/the threat of a law suit. Sean's studio is called Core Pilates and Fitness and he can be contacted at trainer@corepilatesandfitness.com. He is truly wonderful and I've come so far from the personal attention and instruction that he has given me. The kind of attention that we were supposed to have at TAS. So..at least something positive has come from this entire fiasco!

I agree with the above. Tracy had nothing special that you can't get at another studio. I have been going to Core Pilates and Fitness as well and have finally gotten back into the shape I was in when the original trainers were still at Tracy Anderson Studios. Often the sessions are one on one too. The first session is free so check it out!

This whole situation is not only a reflection and a thumbprint of our own self esteem as a society but truly a societal profile of how we really are not very dependent on God to judge people and letting God deal with their demise. This is now the trainwreck that will keep us all rubber-necking into someone else's shortcomings so that we all will feel better about ourselves. I have dealt with Tracy in the past and she was not only trustworthy but very classy and dependable. And Im not just putting points up for her ..she was good to me...at all levels.

Consider this.....maybe this was a "fight or flight" response of survival for her...maybe she felt that she had to superimpose and manipulate her image so that she could penetrate the system in the way that alot of people do in not only Hollwood but in every venue in life. Its all screen and mirrors...

Dont get me wrong...life catches up with you as it has with her but I truly got to know her well in her business ventures and she is definately not a dirt bag.

To all of you who got ripped off....FORGIVE HER.. dont FORGET........but hell didnt you see the PASSION OF THE CHRIST? What reward is there in chastisement?

Alot of you Carmel housewives need to get off of your chatty-Kathy a**es and get a life. The law is now dealing with her so leave her alone. I wish all I had to do all day was rub my Lawyer hubby's back , make sure the muffins were fluffy, watch Oprah, and bash Traci..............and then act all intelligent.

To the person who posted about forgiveness and not judging, you acted in the same manner as those you are criticizing. Sorry to disappoint you but I am not a housewife who sits around and rubs my husbands back! My husband died and I am now the single mom of two children. Tracy has taken four thousand dollars from me and not repaid it. I am sorry but I can not forgive this because I need the money I invested in her studio to reach my fitness goals elswhere. Tracy's studio was my outlet and my only time away from my children. How dare you judge us when you do not know our full stories! I have only recently learned of all of the other times in the past Tracy has taken others money. So I am not goint to sit back and be victimized but instead fight for myself and others.

I used to be on the inside of the business practices at the Fishers location (& could go on and on about all the dirty little secrets) and to all of you that are upset by the manipulation by all involved parties have every right to feel the way you do because 98% percent of it was intentional; this is why I chose to leave the stuio when I did which I'm so glad I did now because I got out before it got REALLY ugly! I wasn't having my name go down with the business. If the stuido in LA is run in any way that the Fishers studio was it will be closed by the end of the year. I think it's great that clients have taken the initiave to contact local media in Indianapolis and hope Fishers and LA clients will do the same in Los Angeles, including the PR firms that represent Madonna and Gweneth. And to those who are singing Tracy's praises, you obviously don't know her from a business standpoint or you would have a completely different outlook on her...take it from someone who knows! Also, people should not be attacking her personal life (although I could really care less) but a word to the wise: don't mix business with pleasure! Although I'm glad to see Tracy get what was coming to her, I hope she gets the help she needs, solely for the sake of her son.

Im sorry but the poster who's husband died I am truly sorry....TRULY. But you really have your prioritys screwed up if your settlement from his death yielded you $$ and you spent it on $4,000 pilates classes! Pilates is the "rich woman's activity", and sometimes I feel like this is a kick in the A** to show alot of women that when you splurge your money on over-priced crap like this, it is a hint from God that you should do better things with your revenue that is thrown at your heels by your corporate sugar-daddy. The women that take pilates classes are so sterile and robotic that its nauseating anyway. I mean,geeez they all wear the little baseball hats, terry cloth shorts, got the little land-rover sitting outside....its enough to make me grab a bible and smack all of them in the ass as hard as I can! Again this is God's way of telling all of you to spend your money on something that helps people instead of helping yourselves all the time. "Time away from the kids" ...give me a break $4,000! See you at symphony on the prairie with your wine and your new suguh dah-dah.

To the last poster. How dare you slam any of Tracy's clients. You do not know us. A large portion of us are actually professional women ourselves, doctors, lawyers, nurses, writers, dentists, entertainment figures, political figures, etc. Another portion, while they may not have a typical career, have "careers" in various charitable organizations around town. Just remember that the next time you seek out medical help, take your child to the Indy Zoo, or listen to entertainment channels around town. We are the victims here. We did not take other people's money and use it to live a LA lifestyle. If you google us there are not listings of lawsuits against us. We are the ones actually coming together to help ensure that future small business owners are not taken advantage of. I would rather see someone invest their money in fitness than other pursuits. I know the widow in the post. She is a wonderful down-to-earth woman who's pluck has shown thru this week as it has her whole life. Remember if you judge her, Karma just might come back around and bite you in the butt.

Actually your wrong and there is a pretty "predictable" persona that this type of venue breeds. And that is the overtly competent, high-browed, robotic and inheritently selfish and overexacting, stuck-up post-partisan barbie dolls, who probably have never volunteered a day of charity in her life and inadvertantly are stuck in their twentys with random trips to the botox clinics and social stints to the pilates studios for a "keep up with the Jones's " session so that everyone can see that she isnt actually 42, checking in at church once in awhile ( to balance her conscience), and making sure her hair is in the exact bethaggering precise position that heather locklear's is....only to revert to a night on the town with her overworked husband who has just left lifetime fitness to shop the meat market of 21 year old women. Color me skeptical. Now the others.... are nurses, doctors, lawyers, etc. I agree. But lets call the spades spades eh?

Sorry I had to vent.

Ok, to the judgemental venting "Christian". Please stop. If someone wants to spend thousands on pilates, it's their business, not yours. How dare you judge someone, even moreso, someone who lost their husband?

Please, keep this focused on who is really the crook here. Your generalizations about people who do Pilates is more of an indictment of you than of them.

I realize this will do nothing but incite more flaming, but you need to get a grip. Go spew your holier than thou venom elsewhere. Please.

I agree with the above. We need to keep focus here. Just ignore the stupid comments from people who don't know us. They are not worthy of a response. Let it go. That is the one thing I hate about these blog sites. But Gabsmash has been a great tool for Fishers clients to vent their feelings and let everyone know about who is out there taking their money. This is legitimate. WE have had the press back it up. Stop with the personal stuff, too. I fear for her son. Kids hear and read this stuff and it will surely all get back to him.

For anyone to tell me that these women are not unoriginal and nothing short of lemmings, is living on another planet. Lose the baseball hats, go to the blind school and volunteer and we'll talk logic. Oh! and the terry-clothed shorts going up your butt-crack also are a sign that your father didnt give you enough attention eh? I dont step down anymore ot htis b.s.

To the Christian Zealout who is not so Christian. Yes, I spent the money up front- and yes I did receive a sum of money from life insurance when my husband died unexpectedly and I had a two week old and 18 month old. You obviously know nothing about pilates and the health benefits- read up. As for me having a sugar daddy-how dare you! You should know that I am a licensed Clinical Social worker who has worked for years with inner city youth in Washington, D.C. in the foster care system as well as suburban, MD. I am not shallow and have probably helped the human cause more than you ever will if you continue to judge others as you have here. Why don't you take some time to pray today and you will find that God is disappointed at your behavior. Further, there are people who have been name calling etc. I do not condone this in the least. If you simply stick to the facts it shows the character of Tracy. And don't offer your condolonces for my pain, you obviously were not sincere in the least!

To the person who is bashing the clients, you have no clue what you're talking about. Don't even go on your stupid rant with me either because I had to work in this awful business therefore I have no money tied up in it and am not victim to your pathetic lies. You obviosly don't know the people that worked out here because a) there were men that were clients too b) the women that worked out there had enough class to never ONCE show up in terry cloth shorts that rode up their ass and c) are extremely smart financially...they invested in a workout routine that they thought would change their bodies dramatically, and for some it did. And also, I'm not friends with any of them so its not like you're hurting my friends. I don't care what happens to Tracy, the money she owed me--for being an employee, I got. But if you're going to say those untrue things about them then don't feel bad when they start turning on you. You're not involved in this mess, so get out of it if you aren't going to help serve justice.

"Oh! and the terry-clothed shorts going up your butt-crack also are a sign that your father didn’t give you enough attention eh?"

1) I think your father may have given you too much good touch bad touch practice on the way to church.

2) Give up the mother Tarrasa act, the self righteous ego stroking you are giving yourself it is pathetic. You may volunteer; good for you put a banner up in your front yard so everyone knows you are going to heaven, but many of these people that can spend $4000.00 on classes may be the people that donated the money to build the building you are "volunteering" in. Now are these bad people too?

3) And you want to talk about hate. Seems like you have hate for people purely because they have been stolen from by a fraud and aren’t happy about it. That is like having hate for the victims of a serial rapist? These people were wronged and have a right to be upset.

4) Who smacks people with a bible?

5) Your defending someone one that has broken about ever one of your 10 commandments with no remorse what-so-ever and actually with some pride.

To the person standing up for Tracy (which I believe is Tracy herself or GB. Could you be any more obvious). My advice to you would be this. I would spend less time speaking to the "world" and more time speaking to God and making my relationship with Him right. God does call us to forgive, be He also wants us to be held accountable for our actions. I would worry more about how He's going to hold (YOU) Tracy and anyone involved in (your)her scams accountable, than I would any one living on this earth. He'll be YOUR final judge in the end anyway. He's a just and loving God so you have an opportunity to get it right. I hope you do. To all the women who are getting bashed over what they choose to spend their money on. Remember if you have a relationship with God he knows your heart. That's what matters. With God's help Tracy's "shortcomings" are of a legal matter now. She will be held accountable and charged accordingly by the laws of the land. The rest will come after she takes her last breath on earth and she's in God's hands then. So don't get upset if people put you down. God will lift you up! So focus on that and your family. And by the way, I don't live any where close to Indy. Oh, and I have to say the comment about the Passion of The Christ shows that you have no idea who our loving Jesus Christ really is. Shame on you! Are you really comparing the suffering Jesus went through willingly for you and me to what (you) Tracy are going through?

To the "Christian" above. It's sad that you bring Christ who is love into something so dirty. Christ loves Tracy and he loves the rest of us. YOu might want to read up on the Pharasies as you seem to emulate them quite well. Your evil comments about someone who lost a husband and your vast generalizations about people who chose to take care of their bodies, the ones God gave them are sickening. Yikes. Take some time for reflection and stop giving Christians a bad name. You exude more hate in your postings than the majority of people above. However any of us chose to use what God has given us, is between that person and God, only. Did you skip the verses in the Bible that talk about leaving the retribution and judgement to God? You even quote them in your first line. Either claim your bigotry as your own or be quiet but don't blame it on God.

Ok.. Ok.. now Im getting ticked.

For all of those blind-adherence laced individuals who are saying that pilates clients are not plastic Barbie dolls are living on a different planet than I am. Their demographical characteristics includes:

1.) hypervigilent personalitys
2.) immodest/riske' dressing
3.) type "a" behavioural patterns
4.) divorced and rebellious
5.) narcissistic and aggrandizing
6.) overtly independent
7.) dillusional of grandeur ( see: desperate housewives wanna-bes,fluffy muffins, 2.3 kids, )


Im gonna stop here because I dont want to throw too much salt in the wound. But thank god for people like ME and Micheal Moore who "call out" some of this cheesy fake behaviour within the "right-winged" based sterile social circles that are out there and Pilates definately is one activity that may be helpful towards your body, but RAPES your pocketbook indeed. Again my point is that for $4,000, hell you could feed a small ARMY of starving children in AFRICA. You all might want to look up the term "blind aherence", and "lemmings" because this is a classic case of denial and supressed rebellion...not to mention jealousy with many inbred vile attempts to project personal unhappiness. I love you all but a spade is a spade.

Sounds like the preacher can't get enough of their own venom. I would think that God would sign her name after passing all that judgement on. Anyone who runs, owing money and services to people should be prosecuted, period. Doesn't matter where they go or who their (famous) clients are. I'm sure Madonna and Gwyneth do what they can to protect themselves, and hopefully will follow through on these allegations for their own satisfaction. I'm sure they aren't interested in being associated with someone who has this kind of history, or even these allegations against her. Unfortunately, it sounds as though Ms. Anderson's skills as a trainer become worthless if she is not trustworthy and has stolen from her clients. I would think future clients would become nonexistant if someone rented a billboard near her LA studio with some of this info. I'm sure her potential clients would appreciate knowing about her in advance of an investment.

For crying out loud. Tracy would not be training someone like Madonna if she was a worthless ugly skank-ho ( like someone mentioned above). Tracy does have pimples that fo-sho. But man she is sexy. I bet she could do a marathon in the sack. Maybe I'll sign up in L.A.

Seriously though..the woman has been blessed with an awsome body and perfect ass. especially after having a kid...man she can get any guy she wants and WILL.

Yeah I am sure LaQuina will trade at least 2 catrons of smokes for her... Then maybe carry her around in her in her prision sling like one of paris's dogs... A tear drop might pull attention from the pimple face too... maybe she can even release a Jailhouse Abs DVD.. Come with felony fraud ideas and the weeks meal plan at Pendelton

Tracy looks the way she does from purging in her dirty bathrooms...and who knows how much dexitrim she's sucking in as well!! And in response to your generalizations about those who do Pilates, let me give you an example of just HOW WRONG you are! For those Fishers customers who worked out on fridays, there was an older lady that worked out with us! Maybe in her 60's...NOT blonde...NOT well off...in fact, she worked in a factory and worked OT to come in and invest in her health since her husband died with such poor health! I, myself, am a single woman who has done the right things in my career to be able to afford "investing" in my health. I am by no means wealthy...I work my ass off everyday!! I lost 30lbs...but I DO NOT credit Tracy for this...I credit Mandy, Nicole, Sean, Ashley, Adrienne, Teresa, Emily and sadly enough myself considering I was left numerous times to train myself because Tracy wasnt paying her trainers paychecks so we went without!!!! And WHY was I paying $4,000 for training myself? No one wanted to work for Tracy and the girls in the end saved her ass!! They did the best they could to keep things together! This DOES NOT include Tommy the Idiot!! This man added NO VALUE to me whatsoever!!

Girls...do you think Tommy the Idiot is posting these responses? What a nightmare he was...and had the big ego to boot!

Yes Tracy Anderson took my money as well and lied about closing the studio and vanished without a trace.... but who cares because she is oh so talented and who can't blame her for wanting to go to LA .... WHUUUUT? The glowing recommendations of this 3rd rate scam artist are obviously written by Tracy or her friends.... her business practices will catch up to her as smart Celebs know that the cost of working with Tainted Talent far outweighs the benefit... Tracy Anderson is tainted and this is and will come full circle. Her lack of foresight will damage (is damaging) her career tremendously and the short term gain will cost her exponentially in the long run.

It has been over a week since a settlement offer was acccepted by me and I still have no check despite being told it would take three days. This is also the case for two others of the four of us who even received offers and there are still 100 plus who have not received settlement offers at all!

If Tracy was really working this out, don't you think she would be in Indiana with her attorney taking care of business instead of "doing business in the Hamptons with Gwyneth"? Her attorney doesn't return phone calls or emails. He sends out a blanket email AFTER the news hit the airways and papers. He probably is isn't getting paid either. Add Jack Hittle to the list....Flora (the cleaning lady), Dan from Jan Pro Cleaning, Landlords, etc. Please....is Tracy really trying to take care of this? Also, "the checks are in the mail" - no one has even received the checks!!!!

I am a client at the Studio City TA and I agree with many of the posts that the trainers, indeed, maintain the studio. However, these trainers are phenomenal. Maria, Andi, Emily,...just incredible dancers, instructors, and truly interested in how they can create programs to focus on our trouble spots. I don't think that Tracy ever insinuated that SHE would be the one to measure, make programs, or follow through on our fitness programs. She once said that her name is the name on the studio awning and she owns the studio... but she is in and out. I agree that she cares mostly about training the celebrities. But who cares? I love the work out, I've seen results, and since we pay on a month to month basis... I am not too worried about her closing the studio. It's busy from 6am-830pm.

I wish all of you in Indiana luck on getting your money back. It's a shame what happened. There are no excuses. Her personal life, however, is hers and hers alone. Focus on getting your money back.. not on her relationships or who she lives with.

Anonymous said...

Definitely agree with you about the workouts. We too loved our workouts and trainers, etc. Tracy was hardly there also. But, the fact is, she lied to us and closed down the studio after she told us (not face to face, but thru her "manager, Tommy") that the machines needed repairs. Then, on a Saturday night, all the machines and weights were gone. Many clients showed up Sunday for a workout and nothing was there. Do you think that was right?? She supposedly had friends that were her clients. She scammed them too and never looked back. I'm glad you are enjoying your studio and trainers. It's with our money that allows you to do that. As stated in a previous note, if she wants to be a personal trainer for the celebrities, fine, but don't steal from others to do it. I don't know how you can support her. We are not done here and won't give up getting her out to as much press as possible.

Anonymous said...

I am an LA client as well and enjoy the workout. However this whole thing has tainted my feelings about the studio. The bathrooms are just filthy. Dumpy. They are a true reflection of how little money is spent there. I keep thinking someone is going to clean them and actually stock them but they look the same way they did the first day I walked in the place. It always seemed odd to me.
I don't think the trainers make much either and they work REALLY hard. They ARE Tracy Anderson Studios. I truly feel badly for those who have been ripped off and I don't believe that it can't happen to me as well.

Then each went to his own house, while Jesus went to the Mount of Olives. But early in the morning he arrived again in the temple area, and all the people started coming to him, and he sat down and taught them. Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery and made her stand in the middle. They said to him, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the very act of committing adultery. Now in the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?" They said this to test him, so that they could have some charge to bring against him. Jesus bent down and began to write on the ground with his finger. But when they continued asking him, he straightened up and said to them," Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her." Again he bent down and wrote on the ground. And in response, they went away one by one, beginning with the e1ders. So he was left alone with the woman before him. Then Jesus straightened up and said to her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?" She replied, "No one, sir." Then Jesus said, " Neither do I condemn you. Go, [and] from now on do not sin anymore."
(John 8:1-11)

Anonymous said...

Notice the respect Jesus has for this woman. He does not try to preach to her. He simply shows compassion by getting her out of the jam. He identifies with her in her humiliation. This is important for us to grasp in our own spiritual journey Grace is the action and presence of Christ Jesus in our lives right now As Christians we believe that, when the community is gathered for worship, Christ is truly present in his glorified body Jesus identifies with sinners not by sharing their sins, but by sharing the consequences of their sins. Jesus ate with public sinners. Having a meal in common in the culture of the time was the symbol of belonging to that group of people, family, or nation. That is why the Pharisees were so shocked when Jesus ate with sinners. He was identifying with the outcasts of society-- not only with the oppressed who were unjustly rejected, but also with sinners who were rightly rejected. This means that just as Jesus identified with public sinners in the suffering that was the consequence of their sins, so he identifies with us in the sufferings that we endure because of our false self and our personal sins. We can unite ourselves to him in the full confidence that his mercy reaches out to the human misery that is the consequence of our personal sins. No matter how far we run from God, Christ is always there waiting for us. In the words of Abbé Huvelin, "Christ has so taken the lowest place that no one can take it from him."

The last point in this story is extremely interesting. It is another example of the teaching contained in the parable of the prodigal son. In that parable the father's love first takes care of the most obvious sinner, the prodigal. After we have heard about the father's great mercy toward that son, we hear about the self righteous older son who had always behaved himself in a respectful and dutiful way. He turns out to be the bigger sinner, but the father shows him equal mercy.

In this story we see Jesus offering his great mercy to the sinful woman, but notice that the words with which he rescued her are an invitation to the accusers to enter into their own consciences and to see what is wrong with them. The trouble with self righteous people is that they are just as much sinners as the people they condemn, only they do not know it. They are thus more difficult to help. When Jesus said, "Let the man without sin throw the first stone, "He is saying to the accusers, "How about looking into your own consciences?" He is asking, "What is your motive? Are you taking rightful responsibility for this act?"

Anybody in LA want to buy our sessions at a good price? It doesn't look like tracy will pay up. IF this was just a one time business blunder on her part with no prior history of deceit (have you read her long history of fraud?? or seen her mug shot) then there would be more understanding here in INdy. We are not the villians here. We are here to warn you that she is a con artist. Its all here in black and white. Watch what you give her.

Again, being a client in LA, and reading all the posts... I don't think anyone is trying to make the Indiana clients out to be the villains. If anything, I sympathize with your position and would be doing exactly what you are doing.

I don't disagree with many of the descriptions of the lack of follow through Tracy displayed after her initial "sales pitch".... However, I do think, again ... it is the trainers that make the place. I don't "support" Tracy... I support the trainers and the good work out I am getting. Tracy's sale's pitch is what got me in the door (after seeing it on the Daily Candy)... and honestly, it got me working out again... it got me excited to go to a place where I saw results. I am very thankful for that.

I don't feel that it is at the expense of your studio and your money... as she had already opened our studio a year previously. Whatever it is that she is doing with your money... I hope she is forced to own up to. The right thing for her to do is pay you all back every dime of what you paid.

Anonymous said...

I really appreciate everything you said. But it was with our money that she was able to open up your studio. She had many deals going on, didn't pay on her lease, ended up in jail because she didn't pay back debts that were court ordered. She didn't pay her trainers so they were forced to quit. All that money went to the LA studio for the last 2 yrs. She took the reformers out of the studio, who knows where those are unless she is opening a 2nd one, which is what we are hearing. She has stripped us of our money and the studio and equipment that our trainers were using to help us, like your trainers are doing right now. We got use to Tracy being gone. We were doing ok without her and understood her reasoning to be in LA. But bottom line, she lied, stoled money and does not care about it. If she can do this to her friends and in her home town where her family lives, she is somebody you do not want to be associated with. Everyone, in their time, will see this for themselves. It took me awhile, I was loving my workout too, just like you.

There doesn't seem to be that much talk about it at the studio. It's definitely big news in Indiana... but it hasn't hit the media in LA. Not everyone reads TMZ.

I have been working out in the LA studio for the last 5 months and have seen results. I like a few of the trainers..but it's really all on Maria and Andi...and I understand why they are more interested in doing private sessions with the celebrities that are willing to pay an additional $100 a hour. I do kind of resent that the business has obviously grown tremendously after the recent press and that Tracy hasn't done anything in regards to managing the studio to take it up a notch...they are obviously understaffed and the place is dirty (as has been previously discussed) she should really get in some new girls and train them to be trainers...not just girls who can change a spring from yellow to blue for you...there should always be 2 competent trainers helping the 6 women working out (because it's always full now) and there should always be a separate person (Allison can't do it all) answering the phones and dealing with appt. changes. A friend of mine who works for Good Morning America was asking me about the situation because they are thinking of doing a story on the situation (ie, celebrity clients with a con artist trainer) so it will be interesting to see what happens. I honestly think Tracy isn't showing up at the studio because she's afraid of being subpeoned for something. I almost wish she would read this stuff to get a clue. The fact is that she will never screw over the LA clients because the media is based here and she would never be able to recover...I've heard rumors of the Santa Monica studio opening "at the end of the month" for 4 months now.

Anonymous said...

It would be better for all the LA clients if the Santa Monica Studio does not open, because uless she gets an investor; she will be packing the LA studio to fund it. You won't be able to get a reformer when you need it. I predict that's going to be happening anyway...to fund her legal bills.

Anonymous said...

To the LA client who has been working out for five months, The issues you are describing are exactly what we faced in Indiana. Tracy starts with a bang and then drops the ball. She does not train her staff adequately but instead lets them learn as they go. This was the case after all of her trained staff members left because they were tired of Tracy's deceit and not getting paid. This is not what you pay for-quality instruction should be someone who is certified in pilates as well as personal training on top of spending hours upon hours with someone who has been doing Tracy's work for years. Be careful- we never thought she would close the studio here, but she did- only after saying she wouldn't. I still have not received any refund despite the fact that I was offered a settlement three weeks ago and was told it would be sent to me in three business days. She is currently under investigation with the Indiana Attorney General's office. At some point, she will have to pay- whether it is willingly or if it is by legal action taken by the Indiana clients! Please do not let this happen to you!

Does anyone know the PROSECUTING attorney handling this case in Indiana? I have contacted Mr. Jack Hittle, atty, who is as shady as Tracy is! He even tried to say that I had 'forfeited' my unused sessions "when I moved out of town..." (I had stopped going to the reformer because of an injury and tried NUMEROUS times to reach Tracy and of course she was NEVER courteous enough to return any of my calls) ... Well, it just so happens that until just this PAST April of 2007, I was still living in the SAME exact house off I'd been in for 11 years -- AND I'm STILL living in Indianapolis NOW even with my move!

Now he's suddenly changed his tune when I proved his first assessment wrong and now demanding I show a contract. (I never received one to begin with, all I got was a receipt for the $999) He also wants a document that would show which sessions I didn't use. How would a client have this? That's what the TRAINER would have!! When you go to a tanning bed, they don't hand you the card that shows the amount of tanning sessions you have left for YOU to bring back each time - the same goes for personal trainers! AND if they seem to have this supposed info that I "moved," then wouldn't they have my folder with my programs where it would show that I only did one session of the "New 10." But wait, her records are obviously MAJORLY inaccurate so wouldn't it now come down to my word against hers? I can produce SEVERAL witnesses that knew me reguarly attending even the aerobics classes as well as the reformer and then suddenly had to stop due to my injury!
I need to talk to a COMPETENT attorney and somebody who isn't just looking out for Tracy...dealing directly with her defense attorney is like letting a Fox guard the hens!

So, I live in Los angeles and I just read an article on her training regime with Madonna and got all excited. With her being a former dancer like myself, I thought this would be a workout I would be able to relate to and would finally help me lose the baby weight. I'd called the phone number to her studio to set up an appointment and I was one click away on PayPal from ordering her DVD when I thought I should check out a few reviews instead of taking the word from a celeb driven magazine writer. Wow, I am so glad I did.

What you folks in Indiana have been through is horrendous and unforgiveable. Trying to get into shape or lose weight may sound trivial to some but I know that sometimes it's more than rich women who want to work out and look good at the country club. Sometimes it's a complicated emotional rollercoaster ride depending on your history:

1. whether or not you were chubby as a child
2. if obesity runs in your family, like Tracy herself talks about in her bio
4. Low self-esteem
3. If depression has played a part in your inability to want to become engaged in the weight loss process...as it was with me and my bout with post partum after the birth of my daughter.

You put alot of trust in the people who train you. You become friends with them, sometimes outside the gym. I know the 2 hours I spend with my trainer is my time to vent about my husband, talk about my kids and focus on me, for just two hours.

These people have experienced a huge betrayal of trust from someone they probably thought was their friend. And I understand that maybe what they want, besides their money of course, is an acknowledgment from Tracy. You'd be surprised how far a heartfelt apology can go.

People aren't stupid or so far removed from reality. I'm sure they would have understood her ambitions to move beyond her home state and take over the world, so to speak, with her fitness empire. Some people don't want to be a big fish in a small pond the rest of their lives, that's completely understandable. And it sounds like there were a few personal issues she was dealing with at the same time, based on what some of the posts touched on. Who hasn't wanted to start over somewhere else with a clean slate after your life has imploded around you?

It sounds as if they are just really hurt. And hurt can show itself in many different forms. Tracy's pain showed itself through deception. Her employees and clients pain is showing itself as anger. And to make things worse, she's moved on to the next thing and is doing well, it would seem.

It's like being the loyal girlfriend who's boyfriend cheated on you and dumped you for the rich, hot blonde and goes on to a ridiculously successful life without so much as a look back and an "I'm sorry for being a dick".

People in L.A. need to wake up. These are disturbing character flaws and just because she hasn't done to you what she has done to these people, doesn't mean she isn't capable of it. I've never understood how people were able to sit by and watch others be mistreated and tell themselves, "Well, they've never done anything to me, so they're still a good person, even though they're treating that person like crap."

Be careful guys. A person can only hide their true colors for so long. And as for myself, I don't even want to begin to get myself wrapped up with a person who could do this someone else. I simply don't have the time to waste waiting for that moment when I have to start checking my back for stab wounds.

Keep your heads up Indiana.

I'm really thinking about getting Tracy Anderson's DVD after reading an article about her in a national paper which I would say was targeted at Madonna fans. Having been a Madonna fan for years and based on how amazing she looks I thought this DVD would be a great buy as who would'nt want to look as good as Madonna??
So I decided to check out Tracys website and yes it does look nice and all but the fact that you have to pay via paypal was putting me off and also set off a few alarm bells as some sites that sell goods or advertise goods for sale only except payments through paypal , only to find that it is a scam just to rob people. Not that I'm saying that Tracy's site would do this, but after watching a watchdog program it showed sites that were set up with goods for sale with payment through paypal only for customers to find that there goods would never arrive after paying and as paypal can only ensure payments are sent they cant ever return them. I also gooled for more info on Tracy or if the DVD was avaliable to buy else where and was some what shocked with the lack of info you could find on her and that the DVD is only avaliable direct from her site. Then I came across all of these comments about Tracy Anderson and and way she operates, I find it hard to believe that Madonna,Gwyneth or any other celeb would be linked to such a dis-honest person and I am some what confused if to go ahead and buy the DVD . Has anyone brought it and if so was it worth it? Please advise thanks.

MADONNA, GWEN I am suprised that after all the humanitarian work you have done. The hard work you have put in to build such a image you haven't realised YOU ARE FEEDING A FRAUD. Mabe stick to feeding the African children. These cons are ripping off your neighbours, hey but I suppose as long as you have a great body... who cares.

A newspaper in Australia released a huge page about the material girl (Madonna) and how Tracy keeps her in shape.... What a joke they even had her website at the bottom. It sounded great so I googled it and found this. Hmmm i'll pass on the DVD thanks Tracy.

And remember Tracy without inner beauty having a HOT ASS is nothing except being a blow up doll to those boys with the 'little man syndrome'

P.S to the 'Christian' what are you all doing reading such GOSSIP anyways ???

I was just getting ready to purchase Tracy's DVD after having gone on the website a few days ago. I'm glad I read some of your postings first. Now my dilemma is that I still need a DVD that can give me the kind of results that Tracy was saying I would get from hers. Is there such a DVD? I don't have time or money for the gym. I'm a 52 year old former teacher who is now a home-schooling mother. I am recovering from recent removal of 18 inches of my colon. I'm getting my energy back and want to get some weight off and feel better. I would love your suggestions. Thanks in advance and God bless.

I just bought the DVD two days ago. I was able to pay with my MasterCard Debit although the site did want me to pay with PayPal. I checked my account and no payment has posted yet. I'll let you all know when it does post and if I receive the DVD.

WHAT --> If you know your spouse is a crook,liar,thief and a cheat & choose to follow her half way around the country and expose your child to her lover/fiancée(while she's still married to you that makes you a fool putting his needs first before his child's!

OKAY THAT'S IT... You must have never had a divorce in IN -- they don't care if your woman if a lying cheating conniving ass the COURTS in IN always give the child to the woman... HELL she can collect tons of garbage in her house and never throw it away and still get to keep the kid. She can be on LITHIUM and you the most upstanding guy -- AND IN COURTS WILL STILL GIVE THE CHILD TO THE WOMAN... The COURTS in IN won't even her testimony from your friends and family lined up in the court seat waiting to tell their story... THE JUDGES IN IN SHUT THE MAN'S SIDE DOWN.

Yes, you need to get a life...We all get scammed in our life, at least once. These posts seem to be the makings of a very "Small Town" mentality. I suggest you read the posts on Tracy and see how disturbed you really are...sounds like good ol'fashioned JEALOUSY! So you lost some money, so you feel betrayed...with all this energy why don't you focus on helping a neighbor or charity work, play with your kids or I know...go after your dream! There is a child involved and many family members...sounds like Tracy is doing well and maybe on the road to great success & fame, trust that she may change her ways and do whats right...give Tracy some room too breath so she can get clear...trust me, you'll all feel a lot better:) TAKE THE HIGH ROAD!

All I can report is that I ordered her DVD and in three days I got it in the mail. I never have taken dance and I am loving the routines. On the DVD she teaches the choregrophy very slowly for 9 different songs. Once you have the routine down, you do the dances to music. It is very different than anything else I have tried. It is not pilates - it is dance. I for one have been happy with my purchase and I am sure I am not alone.

I can't believe all the people from Fishers, IN gave up on exposing Tracy Anderson after what she did to them. Now she is being called a "fitness guru" in US magazine. She was even on VH1. It's sickening when people step all over others to get to the top. What is also hilarious is that I have talked to so many people who have asked for this "research" she has claimed to have done to create the "Hybrid" and it doesn't exist. She always claimed to have a studio in New York and that never existed. What a crock. And people like Madonna have jumped on this bandwagon?!?! It's a sign of the times I guess. It's just so strange that someone with such a checkered past that is so EASILY found on the web (Indianapolis's most acclaimed and reputable newspaper did a story on it for crissakes)can still have so many ignorant followers..... So sad. And you "love her dance dvd"?! Do your homework. She didn't even graduate from Julliard where she claims to have gone. What professional dance experience does she have?! How much more evidence do you need to know she is guilty of being a fraud?!?! There is even a mugshot! This is like the OJ trial. HaHa."Sure, we have this whole mound of evidence that she's a hack. but... hey... She hangs with Madonna!" Pathetic. Just because you put a spoon in a pile of sh*t doesn't mean it's ice cream people!

Hey, nobody is talking about whether or not her DVDs are effective? I understand ya all hate her, but if people start buying her DVDs...

Ya all should start some vents on

so that more of the world understands not to get conned.
I saw the Madonna TV special and started searching on the Net but this is one of a thousand positive threads.

I honestly think there may be truth to some of the above comments ,however Tracy must be doing something right to be where she is today.
she has an amazing body that Im sure she has worked hard for and catering to such names like Madonna and Gwyneth.
As for you..sitting around eating potato chips and wasting your time hating. get a life

Wow I just saw a lil vdo on Oprah's site where Tracy was working out with Gwen and wondered to myself how did this young girl get to work with the likes of Gwen And Madonna! So I start digging on the internet..thinking wow she is so young and if she can do it so can I ...just gotta find out how she got her start..well imagine my appalling surprise to find this page..WOW! Well for all of you who obviously feel ill towards her what comes aorund goes around..rightt?? So if she really screwed everyone so badly she will get screwed to eventually just give it time my friends...and on the flipside Madonna was always screwing people on the way up but no one ever really spoke badly of her only disagreeing with her being to in your face with her sexuality...but she definetly didn't steal people's money or lie to them...she is too charasmatic and smart to stoop to such a level...they say a woman who is successful will always be called a bitch...sounds to be like Tracy is just doing what she has to do to make it to the top and doesn't care who she steps on to get there..but life teaches us to be careful who you step on to the way up because you just may need them when you come down = )
