âI have a lot of love for those people in the audience every night,â Jennifer says. âThey got up, bought a ticket, sometimes stood for hours and even if I donât feel like I have the smile in me, I feel like they deserve my best. Iâm very conscious of that,â
And Tracy understands Jenniferâs attitude about fitness.
âWhen someoneâs preparing for tours and giving energy to that many people, they canât be out of shape,â Tracy says. âHer workouts have to give her the ability to have endurance for the show,â adding, âWe donât want to change her sexy body!â
Tracy explains that the perfect workout for âJenny from the Blockâ is not too extreme because the star loves her natural body and is secure with the way she looks.
âWe wanted to design a workout to keep her sexy butt toned!â Tracy says.
Tracy reveals the key to getting J.Loâs flawless body is tricking the muscles.
âWe change the workout every 10 workouts,â she says. âThatâs the secret. We can only stay on a movement every 10 days.â Tracy explains that by changing the exercise sequences every so often, the muscles are tricked and challenged, thus maximizing the workout results.
Because J.Lo is constantly on the go, her workout needs to be manageable with her busy schedule. Tracy made sure to design a program that keeps Jennifer active but not overworked.
âShe needs to get her exercise in one hour each day,â she says. â30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of muscular structure.â Tracy also reveals that in order for Jennifer to keep her rock hard body, she canât go two days without a workout.
But you donât have to be Jennifer Lopez to have a rock star body! Tracy says anyone can achieve J.Loâs success.
âItâs like learning a new skill,â Tracy says about exercising. âIt is possible. Thereâs not a womanâs body I canât change!â
