Tracey Mallett!!

Tracey Mallett!!

I am thirty-{something} years old, and up until a few months ago I had never set foot on a plane…let alone a plane to Hollywood!  But there I was, flying across the country all by myself on my way to meet the woman who inspired me to get started on my fitness journey, Tracey Mallett!!

This story actually begins about 4 years ago after my youngest son was born.  I was looking for a way to lose the “baby weight” I had gained after having two kids when I stumbled upon Tracey’s book and workout program, Sexy in 6 I read the book from cover to cover, and I knew instantly that this was the program for me!  (How could I NOT fall in love with her program when an entire chapter in her book is devoted to sex?? Sign me up!)

I did the workouts (which are super fun), followed her nutrition plan, and lost the baby weight! I also gained something I never had before…a new found love for fitness!  This was life changing for me considering I’m the girl who found excuses to skip gym class in high school!

On a whim, I decided to write to Tracey on her website about my results.  To my surprise and giggly delight, she wrote me back personally!  She was genuinely excited about my results!  Tracey became my friend and personal fitness guru whenever I needed advice.  So when she contacted me to see if I would be interested in being in an infomercial for the re-launch of Sexy in 6, I was more than happy to share my story!

So that’s how I came to be on a plane for the first time (loved it!), on my way to shoot a commercial in Hollywood…craziness!!

The experience was SIMPLY AMAZING!  I had become friends with Laura, another mom appearing in the infomercial, and we traveled to the set together.  It was a whirlwind of activity…lights, cameras, make-up, wardrobe…for a day I got to feel like a star!  But the best part was finally meeting Tracey Mallett in person!!  She is just as warm, friendly, and super bubbly as she is in her DVDs!  It was a day I will never forget!

I will always be grateful to Tracey for turning me on to fitness, and helping me understand the importance of good nutrition. She continues to inspire me to take my fitness journey to the next level, and I am so honored to call her my friend!  (My goals for this year include getting my personal trainer certification and attending one of Tracey’s Booty Barre trainings.)
