Recently, I've been taking classes at SlowBurn Personal Training Studios. SlowBurn Personal Training Studios currently has two locations. One in Montclair, New Jersey and one located in the Upper West Side in New York City. One SlowBurn session consists of a controlled weight training session compared to high force lifting seen in other gyms. This specific SlowBurn technique helps avoid injury and provides a greater benefit compared to other lifting methods.
During my sessions, I've been training with Fredrick Hahn, who's the owner and founder of Slow Burn. Fredrick has been involved in fitness for his entire life. He first started Slow Burn in June of 1998. His clientele includes celebrities, CEO's, TV personalities and journalists like myself.
In addition to creating successful gym, Fredrick has also written and published a book about his business. In his book, he talks about how his Slow Burn technique is much more efficient compared to spending hours at the gym. He also touches upon the multiple benefits someone will receive when attending twice a week. Some of these benefits include: lower back and neck pain relief, enhanced joint flexibility, burning fat and improved cardiovascular health.
My first two sessions have been a series of trying an array of different weight machines. Since I'm normally a runner it's been a nice change to focus on strength compared to cardio. It's been interesting to see what my body naturally has strength in and what doesn't. Fredrick does a great job assisting me through each exercise and pushes me to my best ability. After my last two sessions, I've noticed a difference in how my body feels. The days when I exercise at SlowBurn I feel more energized and grounded. I'm look forward to another 7 weeks of training and personal improvements!
