Internationally renowned fashion designer, mum-of-four, beauty entrepreneur – there’s no denying that Victoria Beckham is one very busy lady. But someone in the midst of her hectic schedule, she manages to make time for exercise, and credits one particular workout for helping her feel her best.
In a recent Instagram post, the star revealed she’d just finished an ‘early morning workout’ using the Tracy Anderson Method, sharing a picture of herself wearing chic white-and-grey leisurewear and a contrasting black cap.
The Tracy Anderson Method, developed by Tracy herself more than two decades ago, is a routine designed ‘to harness and deliver the elusive dancer’s body’ by strengthening small accessory muscles to give a long, elegant shape.
Victoria isn’t the only famous fan of the programme: Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Richie, Madonna and Olivia Palermo are also Tracy Anderson advocates, with Paltrow so invested after working with Tracy following the birth of her son Moses that she became her business partner.
But far from only being accessible to the A-list, Tracy’s classes can be done in a living room just as easily as they can in one of her physical spaces, thanks to her ‘online studio’: an ever-evolving weekly workout subscription program with options for beginner, intermediate and advanced fitness levels.

Feeling so proud of @victoriabeckham and the launch of her @victoriabeckhambeauty line💄 At today’s celebration, Victoria spoke about the importance of sustainable beauty and our right to know the ingredients that we use in our makeup. She spoke about the importance of strength amongst women and community. So basically, Victoria spoke about all of the things that matter to me as a woman and mother, including how she won’t be coming out with a wrinkle erasing product because we are MEANT to get wrinkles. She presented this launch the day after her stunning fashion show unveiling her designs for spring/summer 2020 with strength and femininity in a romantic dance, and also right after school drop off because she is THAT kind of dialed in superwoman. Congratulations my pal! I am already obsessed with all of the eye makeup! It’s completely stunning and in my stories. ❤️
Classes take you from the initial theory of the Tracy Anderson Method all the way through to advanced moves that Tracy continually rotates to ensure no client ever plateaus. Focusing on a combination of dance cardio and muscular structure workouts, which are generally resistance and mat-based, each session is typically only around 30 minutes long, but it’s recommend that you follow them 4-7 days per week for maximum results.
However, don’t expect your physique to instantly transform into VB-esque proportions: on her website, Beckham admits that she’s ‘quite obsessive’ about her workouts, explaining that ‘it’s the one thing I really do for me.’
‘It’s about getting the balance between being healthy, but also relaxing a little bit,’ she says. ‘Everything within moderation.’
Her focus isn’t on the Tracy Anderson Method alone: she runs 7k on a treadmill most mornings, and is also a big believer in the plank. ‘You don’t need anything other than a floor space,’ Victoria, who does four, two-minute sets every day, concludes. ‘They’re really good for your core strength.’
