Gwyneth launches body series

Tracy Anderson and Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow and Tracy Anderson help women overcome their emotions in their new web series.

The American actress and her personal trainer have just finished filming an On series for media giant AOL.

Taking a serious approach to their project the pair aim to help females transform their bodies after going through emotional periods in their lives. Loss is one of heartbreaking situations they encountered during their venture.

"We focus on women who have overcome their bodies; women who have gone through really tragic situations in their life with self-medication [over-eating, over-drinking, etc.]," Tracy told website racked.com. "Some weren't supposed to survive, some lost children, but they all learned to connect with their bodies. When you do that, all these things happen."

The two women also found it useful to take inspiration from the women's loved ones to help them tone up. They wanted the females to channel their emotion into getting fitter and distract themselves from previous events.

"One woman lost her son who loved Kempo karate, so she started to practice it," Tracy recalled. "Her body began to transform, but the key here is that she wasn't doing it because she was attached to a vanity-driven goal. She used the grieving energy and put it to something else."

It's no surprise Gwyneth and her trainer have teamed up to create this web series. The 41-year-old has previously raved about working with Tracy and revealed her work out routine.

"Keep up consistent exercise. I am dedicated to the Tracy Anderson Method and it has completely changed my body. Still, when I first started working with Tracy, finding motivation was hard. She advised me to think of exercise as an automatic routine, no different from brushing your teeth, to avoid getting distracted. Now it is part of my life - I exercise Monday to Friday at 10am and always stick with it," she previously recommended.
