MEET THE SPACE
Situated in New York City’s Tribeca neighborhood, the 3-level, 4,000+ square foot Church Street studio offers a complete expression of the Tracy Anderson Method, including a full roster of muscular structure and dance cardio classes (for beginners and advanced clients, alike), Custom Programs, Private Training and a range of Tracy’s patented innovations, including the Iso-Kinetic Band System, and The Super G Floor. Similar to all Tracy Anderson studios, each classroom is kept at a very specific temperature and humidity level to facilitate the best results.
THIS STUDIO OFFERS
Private Training is all-inclusive training, which means that it involves both muscular structure and cardio work. Private Training clients receive body assessments in New York, and their program is tailored to their specific level and needs by The Prescription Team. In Private Training sessions, the trainers do the workout alongside the clients, motivating them every step of the way. Private Training sessions can be done either in studio or in a client’s home. While we can incorporate cardio and muscular structure work into a one-hour block, two-hour sessions can also be booked. You do not need to belong to a studio to book Private Training sessions at Tribeca.
Pricing for membership, pay per class and private training services are available upon request.
In an ideal world, you should do one hour of muscular structure work and one hour of cardio, six days a week. But we understand that life often gets in the way. You’ll find many hour-long multitask classes on the schedule, which include both cardio and muscular structure work: In addition, when clients can’t commit to a full two hours, they’ll often stay for half of the second class (i.e., the cardio half of a multitask class). During your body assessment and consultation The Prescription Team will help you prioritize your efforts if you’re facing a time constraint
Never. The Tracy Anderson Method revolves around empowering and firing the accessory muscles, rather than over-charging the large muscle groups. Because these little guys get strong—and bored—fast, the muscular structure work changes every 7 days to keep your body consistently challenged. You will find that while you’ll get stronger and fitter, the Method will never feel easy, which is why no client ever plateaus. The routines also change every 7 days because your mind gets bored quickly, too: Transformation requires that you stay focused and connected to what your body is doing. When the mind strays or goes on auto-pilot, the results diminish. Many of the muscular structure moves require an intense amount of concentration
The Tracy Anderson Method is designed to provide all the exercise an individual needs. If you’re passionate about a certain type of exercise, bring it up during your body assessment—that said, many types of cardio can be counter productive to the work you’re undertaking with the Tracy Anderson Method
Yes, there are many men who do the Tracy Anderson Method—during your body assessment, The Prescription Team will create a Custom Program to meet your needs, or you can take any Tracy Anderson class. The Tracy Anderson Method is ideal for men who are looking to create more definition and visible striations in their muscles, and would like more balance in their muscular structure. In addition, The Tracy Anderson Method improves flexibility
The Tracy Anderson Method creates specific contractions in the body—maintaining continuity in your movement, or a smooth flow, keeps these contractions consistent and focused. As you get stronger, your form and endurance will improve and you’ll become much more adept at hitting the right angles and activating the targeted zones—all without stopping
I'VE JUST STARTED EXERCISING AGAIN + I'M VERY SORE — SHOULD I WAIT UNTIL I'M NOT SORE TO KEEP WORKING OUT?
No, consistency is key when you’re asking your body to transform. In addition, continuing to move through the workouts despite soreness will help your muscles release some of the toxins that are creating the soreness in the first place.
The Tracy Anderson Method works deeply in our systems, pulling all of the muscles together. This can loosen fat that’s embedded deep in our bodies and move it to the surface, right beneath the skin. Once the fat starts making its way up, it’s easier to burn off with cardio.

As a studio client or guest, you will need to bring comfortable workout clothes, socks, and sneakers to wear during the workout. If you forget to pack a workout top or pair of leggings, you can shop a full range of apparel pieces located at reception
Tracy does not usually do personal training sessions, however she is intimately involved with the custom prescription of every client. Tracy and her Director of Training take all of the Tracy Anderson trainers through an extensive program to ensure that they are prepared to work with any client at any level. In addition, Tracy creates all the exercises and routines that are given in every class, in every Custom Program, and in every Private Training session. When her schedule allows, Tracy teaches master classes at the studios: All monthly members are invited to participate in these group sessions. She also hosts all viTAlity Weeks, which are open to members and non-members alike

I HAVE A BIG LIFE-EVENT APPROACHING (SABBATICAL, PREGNANCY, LONG-TRIP,ETC.) WHICH WILL TAKE ME AWAY FROM THE STUDIO: CAN I PUT MY MEMBERSHIP ON HOLD?
We only do holds and temporary freezes for medical reasons, or if you’re moving out of state to an area where there isn’t a Tracy Anderson facility. If you’ll be traveling, we can provide a travel prescription based on our DVD programs along with global real-time video streaming to maintain your connection to Tracy’s class content from in-studio.
It depends on the studio and the tier of membership—some studios require initiations fees. Please call your home studio

No. In fact, there are many trainers around the world who pose as Tracy Anderson Method instructors but are not part of the company. Only trainers currently employed by Tracy Anderson are approved to teach the Method. That said, we can send a Tracy Anderson trainer to another state or country for private training. You can contact any of the Tracy Anderson studios to book this service.
Please contact customer service. Our studios are not equipped to handle these types of customer service queries.
Private Training sessions can be done either in studio or in a client’s home. You do not need to have a membership plan at Tribeca to book private training sessions.
Private Training is all-inclusive training, which means that it involves both muscular structure and cardio work. Private Training clients receive body assessments, and their program is tailored to their specific level and needs by The Prescription Team. In Private Training sessions, the trainers do the workout right alongside the clients, motivating them every step of the way. In a Semi-Private Training session, a trainer will work alongside two or more clients at the same time.
Custom denotes a custom muscular structure routine, which is dictated by a client’s specific body type and needs. The Custom Program prescription comes out of monthly body assessments by The Prescription Team and changes every 10 days. The custom program is executed in a semi-private environment; a shared space with trainers overseeing, correcting and instructing each client’s individual custom-designed workout plan.
Yes, many Tracy Anderson products are available at the studio for purchase. Our reception teams can assist with ordering any product which the studio does not carry, including DVDs and real-time video streaming subscriptions.

Yes, as long as you have a note from your doctor. The Prescription Team will work with you throughout your pregnancy to customize the program for all nine months. In addition, Custom Programs can be performed in studio rooms that are not as warm as the central studio. Tracy also has The Pregnancy Project, a DVD series for in-home use that will take you through all nine months. A pregnancy waiver, in addition to a doctor’s note, is required
Depending on the type of birth, usually after either six or eight weeks. However, your doctor must release you to exercise first: Your abdominal wall can separate during labor, so you need to be checked to ensure that your body is ready. Once released, it’s important to start the Tracy Anderson Method as soon as possible, as the pregnancy hormone Relaxin, which triggers the body to expand, remains in your system for four to six months after your delivery. It can be harnessed to help the body contract, so time is of the essence!
No, it’s appropriate for all body types, ages, and fitness levels. Ultimately, the most important thing is to start. During your first body assessment and consultation The Prescription Team will create the perfect plan for your body shape and ability. The muscular structure work is generally resistance- and mat-based, and the dance cardio can be tempered to lower the impact
There are multiple varieties of cardio, from straightforward dance cardio, to mini-trampoline routines, to Band Cardio, which is performed while holding onto Tracy’s patented Iso-Kinetic Band System. This dramatically minimizes impact and is quite friendly on the joints. During your initial body assessment and consultation, The Prescription Team will determine what is best for your individual needs
