We’re only slightly obsessed with fitness legend, Tracy Anderson. Call out her name and the world sings praises. With an ever expanding list of celebrity clients like Nicole Richie, Alessandra Ambrosio, Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow, and mogul Jennifer Lopez, her dance-style workout, the Tracy Anderson Method, has kept her devotees in shape for years and years. Between her business ventures, taking care of her children, and rocking a hot bod, we honestly wonder how in the world she does it. Turns out, her energy comes from a extremely unique source. Her strength doesn’t come from a combination of different vitamins and minerals. The only supplement Tracy takes is MitoQ, a unique form of CoQ10 that is able to penetrate the mitochondria, the cell’s power plants, hundreds of times more effectively then regular CoQ10 supplements.
We interviewed Tracy about this unparalleled product, her workout regime, and CoQ10. Keep reading below to learn more about the queen of fitness!
You are the queen of fitness, how do you stay energized throughout the day?
I find energy in honesty. In honestly checking all of the boxes, such as doing the things that you are supposed to do, so that the conscientious part of our brain isn’t spending energy trying to make sense of the lies we tell ourselves. I look at my responsibilities as a way to my purpose. If you ignore your basic responsibilities such as performing well in work, showing up for your family, pets, your health etc. then you are constantly burning energy being somewhat of a slacker. So I find energy in the energy that it takes to be a person who hits everything head on.
What do you love about MitoQ? What differences have you noticed after taking the supplement?
I take 2 MitoQ supplements on an empty stomach in the morning to start my day. Since I’ve been taking MitoQ regularly, I’ve noticed I have more energy –I don’t need “extra” coffee to keep me going all day. I wear a million different hats in my personal and professional life — I need to be able to wake up feeling refreshed and have the energy and wellbeing to get me through my workouts, business meetings, travel and of course, my responsibilities as a mom. MitoQ has improved my sleep, my mental focus and given me the energy to power through my days without skipping a beat.
What is CoQ10 and how does it penetrate the mitochondria to give us more energy?
CoQ10 is an antioxidant that the body naturally produces. It is used by the mitochondria to generate energy and to neutralize free radicals. As we get older, the mitochondria slow down and the body’s natural production of CoQ10 starts to decline. The most effective way to support the mitochondria as we age is to take CoQ10 supplements. However, most CoQ10 supplements are too large to effectively penetrate the very secure mitochondrial membrane, meaning most of it does not get to where it’s needed most. MitoQ is unique because it’s been designed specifically to deliver CoQ10 into the mitochondria hundreds of times more effectively than regular CoQ10 supplements. What is your daily routine like? Do you prefer to incorporate fitness in the morning or at night? My daily routine is I get up and get myself and my kids ready for our days. I workout first and then I tackle all of the categories of my job. I have a family or family and friend dinner. Then it’s the typical mom duties of bath time, bedtime routines. I never make my workout wait. It’s my sanity. My opportunity to process all that is on my mind through my physical self. I always workout in the morning.
What’s your all-time, favorite workout to do?
If you could take only one kind of supplement for the rest of your life, what would you choose? One that helps you de-stressed, energized, or calm, etc.?
MitoQ is the only supplement I take. I like that it’s been backed by millions of dollars in research and trials. I like MitoQ because I know that it’s helping my body do what it’s meant to do naturally. I’m not getting younger, nor am I trying to, but I need to make sure my body and mind function as effectively as possible to keep me doing what I love for longer!
