Billy Macagnone is an authorized GYROTONIC®/GYROKINESIS® Master Trainer based in the East Village of New York City.

GYROTONIC®, also known as “Yoga for Dancers”, is a full body exercise system that embraces aspects of yoga, swimming, tai chi and dance.

Typically, GYROTONIC® is practiced with a mat and chair or with more specialized equipment.

GYROTONIC® emphasizes controlled, sustained movement of major muscles groups to promote range of motion and coordination. Movement is a fundamental part of what sets GYROTONIC® apart from other wellness systems. Unlike more traditional exercises, where linear motion and muscle isolation is stressed, GYROTONIC® motion patterns are circulative, spherical and turbulence-free. Through the rotating nature of the movements, GYROTONIC® exercises are able to connect contraction and expansion which strengthens ligaments, promotes joint health and overall wellness.

Billy Macagnone owns and operates his own GYROTONIC® studio in Manhattan, called Body Evolutions. Body Evolutions is the largest GYROTONIC® studio in Manhattan, holding over 800 private sessions a month. Opened in June of 2001, Body Evolutions has helped countless clients feel better in their bodies. For Billy, who embraces his role as a GYROTONIC® master trainer, that is the ultimate reward.

Billy's Background

Billy’s own physicality journey started at a young age. A New York native, Billy grew up in a fast-paced, high-energy environment, but he sought out new ways to express his energy and develop a sense of balance. He began taking karate classes and doing yoga — and now, Billy is a 6th degree black belt in Seido Karate and a certified yoga instructor. He is also a certified AFFA personal trainer.

Body Evolutions was recently renovated and the results are phenomenal. The space is clean, serene and beautiful. Containing custom equipment, such as The GYROTONIC® Archway, the GYROTONER®, and the Jumping-Stretching Board, the studio is the perfect destination for clients at all levels. Everyone, from “new-bes” and “be-ginners” to intermediate or more advanced clients, benefits from the resources and the insights that the studio has to offer.

Above all, Billy Macagnone operates GYROTONIC® studio so that he can help people become comfortable with their bodies. With his years of experience and dedication, he is able to guide people to train their bodies and improve their endurance, versatility, and gracefulness. Billy believes that “motion creates emotion”– movement conditioning is a major influencer on the overall quality of a person’s life.

Billy is now continuing to expand the influence of fitness and wellness across New York. This coming February 1st, Body Evolutions Studio will be expanding uptown at Madison Avenue!

The studio will be partnering up with Weiss Wellness, an existing Physical Therapy studio currently offering all aspect of physical therapy. Now, thanks to the partnerships with Body Evolutions, they will include GYROTONIC® sessions and Pilates sessions. Body Evolutions is proud to be a part of this organization, and between the 2 companies, there is over 30 years of experience combined in helping people stay strong and healthy.
 

What’s even more exciting is that clients can now use insurance to help pay for their sessions in  GYROTONIC®  and Pilates since there will be licensed physical therapist on premises. Billy and his team look forward to meeting all the new clients and staff working at Weiss Wellness, and know that this is the beginning of a wonderful journey! These 2 businesses are very passionate about what they do, and being established in New York City for as long as they have shows the integrity and success of both places. It is only natural that they should join forces and help promote wellness on a larger scale for all people!
