Want a body like Gwyneth's? If so, prepare to lift, squat and sweat for two hours a day, six days a week! "I work freakin' hard," she says. "It's no accident."

In addition to these intense routines, Tracy helps her clients lose inches by cranking up the heat to 80 degrees. "She likes it hot in the room so you sweat, because she says if the room is hot, you're also burning calories to maintain homeostasis," Gwyneth says. "She's always coming up with new ways to kick up the calorie burning."

The routine starts with Tracy's band system. "I developed the band system for Madonna, specifically, which we use to warm up the arms," Tracy says. "It just offers me a new way of getting to the muscle and the angles that I need to get a little bit deeper."

Then, Gwyneth moves on to arm exercises that require little to no resistance. "Only 3-pound weights," Tracy says. "No woman should lift more than 3 pounds."
