World-renowned fitness and wellness expert Tracey Mallett continues to revolutionize the exercise world with her body changing techniques designed specifically for time-crunched individuals and her creation of the hugely popular workout, “The Booty Barre” – a growing favorite among celebrities. With her infectious personality, well-choreographed workouts and expertise in getting the entire body fit, Mallett’s roles span from television host to author to creator of a best-selling line of dance and fitness-based DVDs. Having sold over one million units to date, Mallett is an International Fitness and Wellness Expert, dancer, choreographer and Master Pilates Instructor who is teaching around the world. Mallett owns her own fitness and Pilates studio in Los Angeles, and is currently certifying trainers worldwide in “The Booty Barre” technique. She’s also a certified personal trainer and a group fitness instructor through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of American (AFAA), as well as a Certified Sports Nutritionist with the National Association of Sports Nutrition (NASN), a BASI Certified Pilates Instructor, Pilates Method Alliance and a Level 1 Gyrotonic Instructor.
Mallett is a regular contributor who delivers carefully crafted workouts that have appeared in dozens of publications including Prevention, Shape, Fitness Magazine, Women’s Health, the Los Angeles Times, Pilates Style and Self. Mallett has hosted several infomercials and appears regularly on TV including Good Morning New York, The Style Network for E! Entertainment, Access Hollywood, KTLA’s Morning Show, KABC and others. She recently appeared on Ellen joining First Lady Michelle Obama, Ellen DeGeneres, and a group of excited school children in an exercise routine developed by Mallett as part of the “Let’s Move” campaign. This was a dream come true for her, as one of her passions in life is to find ways for kids to be active, combating childhood obesity through movement and healthy nutrition. Mallett is also currently a Fitness Advisor for Golds Gym and works as a guest fitness host for ShopNBC.
A former professional dancer, Mallett also specializes in pre- and postnatal fitness and has presented her workshops at many major professional fitness conferences domestically and internationally. She has been a fitness professional for over 20 years and prides her self on being an innovator with the latest trends in the fitness industry.
Mallett has made it her mission to guide and motivate people – especially other busy moms — to boost weight loss and fitness with simple, practical exercise and diet solutions. “I’ve always loved to dance and like many other instructors, initiated Pilates classes because I had a back injury… and because I hated my thighs,” she says with a laugh. “I also gained 50 pounds during each pregnancy and — like most of America — I must modify the way I exercise and eat as I get older. So I appreciate and understand these obstacles to a healthier lifestyle … and I’m here to help!”
Born in the United Kingdom, Mallett began studying dance at the age of three and was later accepted at London’s Premier Theatre Arts School, The Italia Conti (former alumni include Tracey Ullman and Naomi Campbell). After successfully completing her studies, she embarked on a career of musical theater, acting and dancing – mostly ballet and jazz– across Europe, and landed in the United States in 1996.
Mallett resides in Pasadena, California with her husband and their two amazing children Amber and Ty.

“After having my third child, I was scanning amazon.com looking for new fitness inspiration, and found Tracey’s DVDS! Her upbeat workouts are so appealing in short, do-able bites and Trace is very warm, friendly and supportive; she is a fantastic motivator! I immediately joined her website and love being part of such a brilliant online community. I lost all my pregnancy weight and more, and I am addicted to exercising with Tracey!”
