Christine Crivello Bartolomasi

Christine Crivello, co-owner of HIP Studio, has called the South Bay home for 16 years. After graduating from Loyola Marymount University, she spent 10 years in the music and fashion industries before finding her passion for health and fitness. Once she discovered the amazing toning and sculpting benefits of Pilates, she was hooked. Christine earned her Pilates certification from Body Arts and Science and met future studio partner Amber the same year. The two share the desire to make fitness fun, effective and sustainable. They opened HIP Studio to provide the perfect blend of intensity and variety in order to reshape the body and maximize results.
