Tanya is the Office Manager at Serious Strength and an ACE certified
personal trainer. She moved to NYC in the summer of 2006 to pursue
her professional ballet career and was fortunate enough to discover
the benefits of Serious Strength. She has a degree from Mercyhurst
College in Erie, PA, and has since danced with professional ballet
companies in Bismarck, North Dakota and Atlanta, GA before moving
here. After discovering the amazing benefits Slow Burn had on
her dancing, Tanya decided to become certified so she could help
others enjoy what Slow Burn could do for them. She is thrilled

Teri is an AFAA-certified personal trainer and a freelance writer,
published on topics ranging from beauty to health and fitness.
She holds a master's degree in journalism from Northwestern University.
She developed an interest in strength training, fitness and nutrition
as a youngster, after watching her grandmother spend much of her
life relying on a walker, and then a wheelchair. Teri made a commitment
to always stay healthy and strong, as well as help others find
the strong path that leads to a better quality of life. Even if
you don't love strength training, you can love why you do it.
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 Slow Burn™ as I
did before, and I don't have to organize my life around my workout!
I love what Slow Burn™ does for my body and I love seeing what
it does for our clients.
