First...I don't have a fitness degree or fitness philosophy that most people in the fitness industry have...I RESPECT ALL OTHER WORKOUTS, TRAINERS, ETC. but I don't believe you need weights or machines, called out, physically adjusted...to get it... Trust yourself and you are not alone because I was just like you and never liked working out ever until I created TGM... The vibe, scent, ambiance, energy is shared and loved by so many! There is no pressure EVER. I just wanted to create a safe, clean, special place for the world... like a huge hug you get from someone you needed, good vibrations all of the time....that is TGM and why I created Tracey Gardner Method
You hear and feel that TGM Tracey Gardner Method is so addicting, so much more than a workout (hardest most empowering fitness self inflicted sweatiest intense fitness experience and destination) I am definitely crazy and I own it! I had to take a risk though and yes I am an adrenaline junkie. TGM comes from my soul and my passion to share it with the world is beyond words. There are so many personal reasons behind it and I probably will sound like a broken record but it excites me! I am not a fitness expert and do not claim to be but I did figure out what the body, mind and soul need and that is a safe place to work out your shit at your own pace. (I LOVE TO KICK MY ASS!!!! it feeds the pain.) TGM is place to be who you are whether you love working out or loathe it like I used to. Evolving and staying ahead of what everyone is doing is organic to me and making playlists for each class because I get bored before anyone until I find what I LOVE. I go with what I feel. I understand the body from our finger tips, thumb pads, to our toes and muscles in between that I never knew were muscles :-) TGM allows you to push yourself to the limits mentally and or physically. You can be as sore as you want because you are activating and engaging at your pace. It takes time to click. If you don't feel it where we say in class then ask because we all are sore in different places all the time and our bodies need to be used with caution. I AM SORE EVERY DAY!!! Good sore but sore! IT TAKES PATIENCE and IT TAKES TIME TO GET USED TO the TGM heat and pitch dark sans mirrors studio. Yes, NO MIRRORS and IN THE DARK and no one can see what you are doing except who is teaching and we understand how hard it is and it can't be mastered, there is no perfect but when it clicks for you, the addiction starts and you crave the physical and mental results.
ABSOLUTE EUPHORIA after every class, better than a runners high. YES YOU GET HIGH, feel as if you sweated out the world like all of the bullshit, struggle and reality in life has escaped you. It has helped me fight addiction, depression, panic attacks, negativity, anxiety and has given me something to look forward daily. I HATED TO WORKOUT. I used to count calories and drive myself crazy but with TGM I eat whatever I want, I drink wine and fireball too lol (too much candy and pizza) but life is short! STOP STARVING YOURSELF, STOP HATING YOUR WORKOUT and STOP FEELING JUDGED because TGM has arrived (chestnut and third street) YOU CAN NOT MISS IT!
I am so gracious for the love and support and the believers!!!! It has given me and so many others a place to be whoever you want to be. NO PRESSURE, NO JUDGING, NO COMPETITION! AGAIN... I WILL SAY IT IS THE PLACE TO BE WHOEVER THE FUCK YOU ARE. The safe escape no matter what body type, mental state of mind, male or female etc. (no matter what size, ailment, broken bone, hip, knee, shoulder etc injury you have ever had. I GET THE STRUGGLE. I live the struggle and I get it on and off the mat. I am raw, real, unfiltered and I am proud to be the person who never fit in... I created it for everyone who wanted to workout but couldn't deal with going to a gym or a yoga studio. I FEEL EVERYTHING and that explains why my energy is so crazy because and it must be safe for me before I give it to you. My creation of TGM happened by doing everything wrong in my life, experiencing all of the things that made me uncomfortable and the best part is I had to learn to do it all wrong to get it right and I am still a work in progress. I am a fighter to the end giving up is not an option no matter how hard the road is. PASSION CHANGES EVERYTHING and when you find something that you are so fiercely passionate about for me creating TGM helped me survive many hardships and it is why it is so precious to me and so many others! I finally understand why it can never ever be copied, duplicated or imitated and trust me it took me long to get here but when your heart, soul and your breath are in it 110 percent of the day because you love it that much. My insecurities need TGM and my vulnerability thrives on it. It is my happy place and I am so excited to share it with so many of you!!!!!!!!
