Ms. Natalie Neckyfarow , NASM Elite Trainer


Natalie is a New York City-based Pilates Instructor, Personal Trainer and Lifestyle Fitness Coach and owner of Leap Ahead Fitness. A life-long dancer, Natalie took her first foray into the fitness industry while studying to be a pre-professional dancer in high school. Exposed initially to some cross-training and cardio, she eventually found Pilates in her quest to build the ultimate dancer's physique.

After graduating from Smith College with High Honors in Dance in 2000, Natalie decided to pursue an active career in the fitness industry to supplement her income as a performer. She earned her full Pilates Certification from the Kane School of Core Integration in 2002 and her NASM Certified Personal Trainer Certification in 2004. She has worked for David Barton Gym, Premier Physical Therapy, and New York Sports Club.

Natalie specializes in working with clients who maintain busy lifestyles but want to prioritize their health and fitness, clients recovering from injury, and clients who began exercising late in life.

Natalie is a member of  IDEA. She is also an actress, dancer and singer.
