Gwyneth Paltrow's trainer, Tracy Anderson, is still waiting for construction to be completed on her Tribeca gym (monthly membership cost: $900). In the meantime, she's teaching workout classes at the Marriott for only $200 a pop. "'It's going to be all moves that Tracy has invented--Tracy music, Tracy cardio, and Tracy mat work,' Ms. Anderson's rep, Julia Cuddihy Van Nice, told the Daily Transom. 'Everything targets the accessory muscles, which is what makes it so different from everything else out there. Women end up getting tinier rather than when you go to the gym and you're hoisting 40-pound weights and you just end up getting bulkier.'" [Transom]
