Anderson: I'd transform Dunham

Tracy Anderson would like to work out with Girls star Lena Dunham.

As a trainer to the stars, Tracy has worked with clients such as Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Lopez.

Lena is the star and creator of HBO show Girls, which prides itself on bringing realism to the small screen and not focusing on size zero, model-like physiques.

However, Tracy is sure she could help Lena and her Girls alter ego Hannah slim down.

"Girls is my favourite TV show," she gushed to the Cut. "I love it. I think that it’s honest, and the writing is smart.

"I send trainers to the set. But I will tell you that [Lena]’s not allowed to transform her body right now. [Girls] producer Jenni Konner is a diehard client of mine and a dear friend, so we joke, and she says, 'You can’t transform her yet.'

"Yes, I could transform her and I could transform her character. I was on the show – her character was doing my DVDs in an episode last season… She does work out!"

While Tracy’s clients are generally svelte stars, the sports fanatic does appreciate the diversity of body shapes.

She thinks it’s important to teach people about different shapes and sizes.

"I train everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Gwyneth Paltrow, you know, and I’m a totally different body type. I think there needs to be more emphasis in art and entertainment and fashion on all different body shapes,” she summarised.

One star who has also been working out with Tracy is new mom Kim Kardashian.

While it’s been reported she’s keen to get back to her pre-motherhood figure, her trainer says the 32-year-old is taking it easy.

"She’s just taking time with the baby. She’s not concerned with working out or anything. Amazing. So connected. I knew she was going to be a great mom when I trained her during pregnancy,” Tracy smiled.
