WANT A PALTROWENDORSED EXPERIENCE.
BOOK The G. Sport Sessions by Goop and Westin hotels, a pop-up Tracy Anderson Method workout taught by Anderson herself and followed by an intimate Q&A with Gwyneth Paltrow’s go-to trainer. The luxury lifestyle and hotel brands teamed up for two of these workout pop-ups—in Chicago and Austin—last summer, and if Goop’s global domination continues, there’s definitely more where that came from.
WHAT GOES DOWN Anyone who has tried “the method” knows that the moves look deceptively easy—until you’re on your 50th round of a rotating-pushup and lunge combo, dripping sweat (or maybe tears?) onto your mat. Doing it alongside the trainer and hearing her explain why she never talks during a workout (because she wants you to connect with your body) and why she thinks you should eat chocolate every day (because life) is super-empowering.
IF YOU HAVE TIME Make a weekend of it. If you stay at the Westin, your room will come packed with GP-approved extras, including a welcome bouquet, candles and products from Goop’s beauty line. And if your legs aren’t too sore after all the leg lifts, be sure to go for a run. Through its Run Westin program, the hotel allows guests to rent New Balance running gear, download running routes and, at some locations, even train with other joggers.
