Celebrity fitness trainer Tracy Anderson has now stepped into the role of fashion designer with her freshly launched line of workout leggings, consisting of four styles designed for varying body types.
Inspired by her Metamorphosis workout program -- a DVD program designed for individualized body types -- Anderson's leggings can be purchased exclusively through Edition01, a US-based website that ships internationally.
"The women who do my workouts are just as into fashion as anybody else," Anderson said. "They are all so different. One size does not fit all. People always ask, ‘Where do you get your leggings?' The truth is I am always cutting things and having things made for me."
"Glutecentric" women, according to Anderson's program, can purchase leggings that give additional support and compression to the hips and butt during the workout. The Hipcentric tights feature a hidden double layer to compress the hip area, while the Abcentric leggings feature a strong band to hold the lower stomach in. Omnicentric leggings feature an elastic mesh paneling at the thigh, waist, and knee. Each pair costs $125.
According to Women's Wear Daily, Anderson recently gave birth to a daughter, is developing a teen-friendly workout, and is soon introducing a nine-month fitness regimen for pregnant women. "I always preach, ‘Don't do my workouts in the sweats you slept in the night before or the ones that your baby spit up on," she told WWD. "It's really good to get suited up to get motivated."
"The leggings are designed for your body type," explains Anderson on Edition01, "and as you work on your problem areas through the workouts, the leggings will help with the rest."
Other celebrity fitness trainers with their own fashion lines include The Biggest Loser star Jillian Michaels, who has teamed up with K-Swiss on a line of fashion gear, and LA-based reality television fitness trainer Jackie Warner.
