Private and small-group equipment classes as well as high-energy Classic Mat and BellaBody Barre group classes are available. BellaBody Pilates mission is to be the source for high-quality instruction in a clean, safe and comfortable environment while creating a caring community of Pilates students.

Owner Deborah Lavinsky completed advanced comprehensive Pilates training through the Pilates Sports Center’s Scottsdale certification program. PSC combines classical Pilates with a contemporary, athletic approach. Lavinsky completed the PSC Burn at the Barre certification, one of the hottest fitness trends today. Professionally, she is a Pilates Method Alliance® Certified Pilates Teacher, a member of the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) and IDEA.

Lavinsky discovered the exercise system known as Pilates more than six years ago and loved how she felt after her first lesson. Over time, she lost more than 70 pounds, going from a size 22 to a petite size 6, ran the PF Chang’s Rock and Roll Half Marathon, and competed and finished nine sprint triathlons. Pilates has helped her gain a leaner and stronger body and improved her balance, and it gives her a sense of relaxation and confidence. It helped her through arthroscopic knee surgery and various rehabs with more flexibility than she had in her ’30s.

Giving back to her community has always been important to Lavinsky. She is currently serving as vice-chair on the Governor’s Advisory Council on Aging, is a 2014 Women’s Enterprise Foundation scholarship recipient and board member, is a member of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) and the North Phoenix Chamber of Commerce, and was the 2013-2014 Director for Central Phoenix Women.

BellaBody Pilates is offering a special “Introduction to Pilates Package” of three private 55-minute equipment classes for $99, and a first-time group fitness class for $10 — a 50% discount. Every month, a special event or workshop is scheduled, incorporating new ideas, social interaction, charitable giving and fun.
