Profile

After gaining notoriety as the force behind Madonna’s sinewy, sculpted arms and getting name-checked by Gwyneth Paltrow on Oprah, personal trainer Tracy Anderson had something of a media blitz behind her when she opened her first New York studio in 2009. Despite legal woes and a public falling out with Madge, the small space is still so exclusive that they won’t quote prices over the phone, but it’s safe to assume they’re not cheap—there’s a hefty annual initiation fee on top of a monthly rate, and personal-training sessions are extra. In the main room, the ceiling is outfitted with rainbow-colored resistance bands integral to Anderson’s signature dance-cardio method, which is taught in classes of up to 30 people and focuses on small muscle groups toward the goal of achieving a tiny, dancerlike body. Trainers lead customized programs in an adjacent, smaller room on a series of specially designed apparatuses that resemble a Pilates Reformer, ballet bars, and cubes hanging from the ceiling. Devotees should expect to visit the studio five to six times a week.

Entrance

The main entrance to the studio is located on Hubert Street.

Pros
With a completely customized workout plan and near constant monitoring, slacking off isn't an option. A trainer will remeasure you every four weeks to make sure your plan is working properly.

Cons
Despite the high cost of membership, the facilities here are not luxe. The locker room is tiny and lacking the amenities of other high-end gyms.
