Natalie Cespedes, Client Services

Natalie is a native New Yorker, who has spent the last 15 years living as an ex-pat abroad. She traveled extensively within Latin America and Europe, while working as a Marketing manager in the online gaming industry, until feeling homesick and returning to NYC in 2015.

Despite the high paced career and lifestyle abroad, Natalie has always felt that her true passion lies in the health & wellness field and in helping others, which she has pursued in her free time. She is certified in Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Reiki, HTML coding, Marketing and enjoys reading up on nutritional and exercise science. Natalie first came to SlowBurn Personal Training in February 2016, after suffering overtraining injuries in the past with traditional weight lifting, running and then having bi-lateral knee meniscectomy surgery. She was looking for a way to continue to strength train and lose weight while protecting her joints from further injury and reducing chronic pain. Over the last year, training with the SlowBurn method has drastically improved her fitness, health and quality of life. She's happy to now be a part of the SlowBurn family and is looking forward to helping our clients in the NYC office.








Our Montclair Team
SlowBurn

Tommy Day, Instructor

As a lifelong athlete (NCAA football, track and field, gymnastics) and as a trainer since 1991 (SFPA certified), I have had the opportunity to experience many different training techniques. For best results, my standard workout usually hovered around two to three hours (weights, cardio, stretch, shower), four times a week. If I did any less I felt I would be short-changing myself. Boy, was I wrong. I get the same results doing SlowBurn™ as I did before, and I don't have to organize my life around my workout! I love what SlowBurn™ does for my body and I love seeing what it does for our clients.
