The Anti-Tracy Anderson Women’s Training Group

Share This:

The title speaks for itself. It sounds so much better than just saying “Women’s Training Group” doesn’t it? And lets be honest, we all know I get a sense of gratification anytime I can poke fun at Botox McMakeShitUp Tracy Anderson. Nevertheless, I’d like to take this opportunity to let everyone know about a new training group at Cressey Performance.

What Is It: CP Women’s Training Group.

Program Details:

  • Individualized programming provided following a brief evaluation to ascertain specific training needs.
  • Two training sessions per week (~75 minutes) with an emphasis on injury prevention, fat-loss, weight management, strength training, improving overall fitness levels, and debunking every fitness myth that Oprah blabbers on about- such as lifting appreciable weight will make you big-n-bulky, eating past 6 PM will make you fat, light weights “tone” muscle, and why in the hell is the Queen of yo-yo dieting an authority on diet and fitness in the first place?

Moreover, just as an FYI, the following topics are strictly forbidden from being discussed during any given training session:

The Guiding Light, Gwenyth Paltrow, John Stamos’ hair, The Breakfast Club, McDreamy, Brad Pitt’s abs in Fight Club, The Jonas Brothers (accept Nick), the ending to PS, I Love You (I still get choked up), 100 calorie snack packs, and last but not least, Kate Gosselin (AKA: Hitler’s Ghost incarnate).

Essentially I want to make this as much of a learning experience as possible. Unfortunately, many women have been programmed to believe that they’re these delicate creatures who shouldn’t lift weights, and are doomed to endless hours on the treadmill (or worse, endless hours of yoga/pilates) in order to get results.

Obviously (well it should be obvious), this couldn’t be further from the truth. As such, I’ve made it my personal mission to make this the most well-informed, albeit fun, training environment for women in the Metro-West area. Which is to say, I’m willing to compromise and blast as much Justin Timberlake, or I don’t know, ABBA as you’d like while we train. It’s a win-win.

If you’re still skeptical, just listen to some current female clients of CP:

“I have trained with the CP team for almost two years now, and I can honestly say they are my favorite people to be around and train with. They are all well educated in their fields of training, diet, and nutrition. I travel over 45 minutes to Hudson to every Saturday to get my dose of informed training, humor, and camaraderie. It’s a bit of a drive for me, but I do it because these guys are special. I have never regretted the day I walked into CP and started lifting. I would encourage any women out there, at any age, to do the same.”

Deb DiRocco, 50- Reading, MA

“When I began training at Cressey Performance my ultimate goal to was to “fit into my jeans.” A year and a half later I have not only surpassed my goal, but have also discovered a newfound appreciation for weight training. The staff at CP are always positive, energetic, and patient with every one of their clients (take my word for it!). “

Plus, get a copy of Tony’s Pick Things Up, a quick-tip guide to everything deadlift-related. See his butt? Yeah. It’s good. You should probably listen to him if you have any hope of getting a butt that good.

I don’t share email information. Ever. Because I’m not a jerk.
