About Gina Santangelo, Owner
Health and fitness have always been her passion…
She was the girl who danced through childhood, with extensive classes in ballet, tap, and jazz ─ from the time she was three until she reached eighteen. As a young adult, Gina studied additional fitness genres, leading to her discovery of Callanetics Exercise® in 1987 – a refreshing change after so much focus on conventional methods. She was immediately impressed by the tremendous benefits and exhilarating workout, and for the next several years she shared this passion with her students in NYC.
In 1996, she developed advanced training skills under the tutelage of a Callanetics® International Master Teacher and soon became a certified instructor of Traditional Callanetics Exercise®, the advanced technique of Three Dimensional Spiraling, and Cardio Callanetics. She continued to branch out and studied Yamuna Body Rolling under world renowned visionary, Yamuna Zake (a life-changing experience!), becoming proficient in Levels I and II.
In 2003, Gina was introduced to the STOTT PILATES® program, soon to become a certified instructor and teacher trainer for the Toronto based company. Within two years, she was certified at Pilates on Fifth, a Katherine & Kimberly Corporation, in CARDIOLATES. Upon completion of the Xtend Barre™ teacher training, the facility became a licensed studio for the program Xtend Barre™ Workout.
Through ongoing classes, Gina has completed yearly STOTT PILATES® education courses, the Functional Anatomy Movement & Injuries Workshop (FAMI) at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and a ten-week Anatomy Through Movement course with Irene Dowd of NYC’s Juilliard School and The National Ballet School of Canada. And just last year she earned her certification with Balance Body Core Align; developed by a physical therapist, she fell in love with its cardio, strength, core control, and mind-body movement.
As a passionate Detoxification Specialist, Fitness and Mindset Coach with accolades from The Institute of Integrative Nutrition & The International School of Regenerative Detoxification, Gina feels deeply privileged to have learned from internationally acclaimed wellness experts such as Dr. John Douillard, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Robert Morse & Dr. Andrew Weil, She brings extensive knowledge in holistic nutrition, personalized health coaching, and preventive health to her clients at GLOW (Gina's Lifestyle Of Wellness) through her propritary programs; Revive Detox, The GLOW Gold Healthy Lifestyle Membership and The Quick and Clean Diet Makeover.

She works with individuals (Join GLOW on Facebook; a free group where Gina caters to over 500+ women daily) to help them understand their patterns and goals and ultimately make lifestyle changes that produce real and lasting results.
