Shape Up for Summer With Tracy Anderson’s Beach Body Boot Camp

If you’re just getting around to tightening up for shorts and swimsuit season, don’t worry—it’s not too late. I’ve got a few dynamic moves that target all your muscles, forcing you to put your full physical and mental energy into each movement. The result: You up that calorie burn while toning all over. My goal for you is to maintain a so-called summer body year-round, staying within a healthy and sustainable seven-pound weight zone. This way, you’re always ready to step out and shine.

Do 30 reps of each move in the series on one side, then repeat the sequence on the other side. Don’t forget your 30 to 60 minutes of cardio six times a week.

Kneel with feet and knees apart and hands at sides. Lean back, circling right hand backward and placing it between feet; extend left arm up (A). Windmill arms over your head and plant hands in front of body. Press hips up as you extend left leg up, toe pointed (B). Return to “A” and repeat.

2. Lifted Side Kick with Arm Reach

Lie on left side with hips stacked and knees bent; prop upper body up on left forearm. Lift hips, coming into a side plank. Lift right leg up, keeping it bent, and extend right arm straight up (A). Extend leg out as if kicking while you pull arm toward body (B). Return to “A” and repeat.

3. Rolling Plank into Split Stretch

Start in plank position with feet wide and right forearm and left hand down (A). Roll onto right hip until you’re faceup with forearms on the floor and legs open in a split (B). Reverse motion back to “A,” then twist chest open to the right, stepping right foot out to the side and extending right arm up (C). Return to “A” and repeat.
