Gwyneth Paltrow enlists a few pals in praising personal trainer Tracy Anderson, post-Madonna

February 18, 2010 |  1:10 pm

Gwyneth paltrtow Turns out her recent parting of the ways with Madonna wasn't the kiss of death for celeb trainer Tracy Anderson.

Though mildly scandalous rumors of neglect and too-extreme arm toning plagued Anderson late last year, A-lister Gwyneth Paltrow has featured the fitness guru yet again in her weekly online newsletter, Goop

"She has kicked my formerly sagging [butt] into shape and I will be forever grateful. This week, Tracy shares with us a little arm series that I did everyday preparing for Iron Man and that I take on the road," Gwyneth shares.

Not only does Paltrow sing the praises of that buttocks-saving Tracy Anderson Method, she sends along kind words from some of the trainer's other high-profile clients, including Courteney Cox-Arquette and "Sex and the City 2" star Kristin Davis.

"I have seen amazing results that I never thought were possible," Cox-Arquette said. "My butt has lifted, my arms are sculpted, and my skin is tight and actually clings to the muscle again."

Likewise, Davis finds the workouts "elongate and tone muscle. I’ve tried most of the classes and methods out there, and this is the first one that hasn’t added bulk over time (especially to my legs)."

Cox-Arquette displays her Anderson-enhanced bod each week on "Cougar Town." Paltrow and Davis will show off theirs this summer in theaters, with "Iron Man 2" and the "Sex" sequel, respectively.
