Your NYC Neighbor – is a way of introducing New Yorkers to a rich community of savvy parents. New York is a diverse City bustling with all kinds of families and personalities. We also love to grab tips and recommendations from moms and dads in certain neighborhoods and throughout the 5 Boroughs, and especially people who have created a product, service or site that helps new parents or appeals to children. Meet personal trainer Meri Treitler.
Tell us about yourself.
I grew up in NJ. I went to FIT right here in NYC! I started as a fashion girl but always moonlighted as a personal trainer and fitness instructor. When I had my second child I decided to leave the fashion world and pursue my passion for fitness full time. I have three children who are 12, 10, and 8. I met their dad while attending FIT..
Where do you live?
West village, NYC.
Why do you love living in the West Village?
The West village is so neighborhoodish. You really do get to know everyone and your block and surrounding as the streets are smaller than in other parts of NYC.
What do you do?
I am a personal trainer and fitness instructor and a mom to three very busy kids!
What’s amazing about what you do?
I love when people feel empowered and proud of themselves when they see the results of their hard work. (i.e. lifting heavier weight, running faster etc.) and noticing the difference NOT only when they are working out but in their day-to-day life.
What’s different about your business?
I train all populations but specialize in pre and post natal. being that I have been through childbirth three times and have raised three babies and have trained countless new moms I think I have a lot of info and resources up my sleeve. AND if you join a stroller class I am happy to hold, feed, and entertain any fussy babies which is different than most mom/baby classes.
Any promotions or special events?
Right now I am holding a FALL special if you buy five personal training sessions you get one FREE!!
In your opinion why is NYC one of the best places to raise a family?
NYC is a great place to raise a family because the kids get to see and experience it all. I think it makes them very street smart and ready for any situation that may come their way.
