Pilates and GYROTONIC® Exercise Certified Specialist

Marivi Badin


Marivi Badin has always been fascinated with biomechanics as they relate to the movement arts. Her first exposure to movement was at the age of 2 as a dancer in Colombia. Marivi has been a part of the fitness world for over 25 years starting at the age of 15 teaching aerobics and Pilates at the local YMCA.

To deeen her understanding in biomechanics, she received a B.S. and a Masters in Physiology. She also received her full certification in Pilates from Pilates Sports Center, and became a Pilates Method Alliance CPT®. She's also a Level 1 & 2 Burn at the Barre® instructor. She's a GYROtonic® Level 1 & 2 certified instructor and a GYROkinesis® Apprentice. Marivi continues her education by taking CEC workshops from the Master Trainers of Long Beach Dance Conditioning, BASI, Pilates Studio City, and Pilates Sports Center.

Marivi is committed to both the therapeutic and aesthetic effects of Pilates. She has personally noticed how Pilates and GYROtonic® has improved her dance as a Tanguera and her relationship with horses as an avid Equestrian. Most profoundly, Marivi has been able to fully come back from a catastrophic Grade 4 hip fracture using the Pilates and GYROtonic® methods. Marivi's goal is to bring her love and passion of Pilates and GYROtonic® to her clients and assist them along their path of self-discovery.
