It can be challenging to find a fitness trainer that's right for you... 

FREEPORT MIND-BODY FITNESS PROVIDES PEOPLE OF ALL AGES AND FITNESS LEVELS A Personalized & Holistic APPROACH TO GETTING IN SHAPE AND FEELING GREAT!

Certified GYROTONIC Exercise Instructor Kyung-sun Baek is a Personal Fitness trainer with a holistic, integrated approach to helping her clients become strong and flexible.


Hi, I'm Kyung-sun Baek. 

As an ex-professional dancer, I know how great it feels to have a healthy balance of strength & flexibility and to be able to move easily and joyfully!


And at the same time, as someone who's had a few significant injuries during my career. I know well what it's like to NOT be able to move easily and pain free.


That's why I've become passionate about helping people of all ages and abilities develop the kind of holistic, integrated fitness. That will empower them to move ease-fully and also joyfully through all their daily activities!

When I injured my back, I was working in Amsterdam in a modern dance company at the time. I tried ALL sorts of therapies, and a few good rehabilitative fitness trainers, and nothing seemed to really help me, in a long-term, sustainable way. Finally, a friend of mine recommended I try doing some Gyrotonic Exercise sessions with a trainer in the city. Within just six sessions, to my amazement, I was already back to dancing pain-free!


After I retired from dancing professionally, about 8 years ago, I decided to become certified in Gyrotonic Exercise. So, I could bring the same pain relief, ease of movement and overall energetic vitality to others. 


Gyrotonic Exercise is one of the most holistic, easeful and effect methods I know of to cultivate truly integrated, sustainable energy, health & happiness in yourself.


You can learn more below about how Gyrotonic Exercise works. You can also learn about the Gyrotonic Expansion System (the specialized gyrotonic equipment) and why Gyrotonic Exercises are so effective!


Then, if it seems interesting for you, I  highly encourage to sign up below for a single introductory session. The feeling you get from doing this work is really something worth experiencing for yourself!


I look forward to potentially meeting you and seeing how I can support you to meet your physical fitness and wellness needs.

Yours in flow and ease,

Kyung-sun Baek

What is GYROTONIC® Exercise?

A Holistic, Energising Approach to Exercise

Different from many common exercise methods, which utilize more linnear, back-and-forth motions. Gyrotonic exercise is a modern, integrated way of working out that utilizes circular and spiraling movement patterns to increase joint mobility and restore flow and vitality to the whole body—particularly in the spine.

Gyrotonic movements simultaneously strengthen AND stretch your body, increasing stability & range of motion, correcting posture, and stimulating a healthy flow of energy throughout the whole body. Instead of leaving you tired and drained, each session leaves you feeling fresh and vilitalized!

Gyrotonic Exercise sessions are done with the assistance of beautifully specialized exercise equipment, that’s highly adjustable to fit your unique physique and ability. The spiraling movement patterns of gyrotonic exercises decompress, stretch and strengthen your entire spine. And this leads to a cascade of toning & also invigorating effects on all the major systems of your body!


Gyrotonic Exercise was developed by Romanian-born Hungarian Juliu Horvath in the 1980's. Since then, this next-gen approach to holistic exercise has grown to encompass over 13,000 Trainers in 84 countries.


Professional athletes like Chicago Bears' Charles "Peanut" Tillman, Shaquille O'Neal, Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, PGA golfers and celebrities like Lady Gaga, Madonna, Natalie Portman, Jennifer Aniston all practice GYROTONIC® exercise. 


You can read more about The GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM® Method here on their website.

How do the Gyrotonic Sessions Work?

A gyrotonic workout session consists of gentle, progressively challenging exercise sequences that promote multi-directional and circular movement throughout your body, combined with coordinated breathing.


In your first few private Gyrotonic Workout sessions, you learn the 5 basic spinal motions, which comprehensively engage your pelvic abdominal core. And through this process, you learn to send muscular energy from your core throughout your whole body.

As a result, over the course of several weeks of regular Gyrotonic Workout sessions, your whole body naturally adapts to a more optimal state of flexibility, strength and vitality.


It can sound hard to believe, but with a just 1 to 2 sessions of gyrotonic exercises per week, my clients report they feel significantly stronger, are more easeful in their movement, and have noticeably more energy.


For the first few weeks, it's ideal to come 2-3 times a week, while your body integrates and adapts to the movements. And then 1 or 2 times a week is good for ongoing "maintenance" and development. Each session lasts 55 minutes.


 I offer a discounted rate for a first, introductory session, and this is a great place to start. You can feel that you can find a personal trainer here. You can read about the intro session at the bottom of this page.

What Kyung-sun's Fitness Clients Say:

Eliana Trenam - Dancer, Portland Ballet

Kyung Sun is an incredible gyrotonics teacher! I am a professional ballet dancer who came to her for help dealing with back and shoulder injuries. As a former professional dancer herself, she has a deeply nuanced sense of how the body moves. She has helped me regain strength and mobility and within four sessions I was pain-free in my daily activities outside of dance!

Gyrotonics creates pelvic and spinal stability in a much subtler, more comprehensive way than anything you can do at the gym. The eccentric (as opposed to concentric) approach of many of the excises develops long, lean muscle with a wide range of motion.

Everyone can benefit from Kyung Sun's expertise, from those struggling with daily tasks to lifelong athletes!

Richard Stark - Professor

I am very pleased with the attention to my fitness goals and progress that Kyung-sun has shown throughout the past 3 months. She quietly and appropriately advances the challenge of my Gyrotonic exercises—I can feel the continual increase in difficulty, though no session one seems much more difficult than the previous one! Her personal style is so good humored and supportive that it's is easy—and a pleasure—to follow her instructions and example exercises.

I have noticed that I am much more mindful about my posture and that my Gyrotonic work with Kyung-sun has made me feel more flexible and strong at the gym and in Pilates. It is likely that my everyday posture is much better too! I very much appreciate Kyung-sun and her approach to Gyrotonics, and I look forward to every session!

Maureen Joy - Owner, Midcoast Pilates Studio

Doing Gyrotonic exercises sessions with Kyung-Sun has been strengthening, energizing, inspiring and fun!  Gyrotonic exercise adds a fluidity to my physical body that translates into my life. I immediately felt the satisfaction of moving my spine, joints, muscles in circular patterns and finding the energy connections.  The machines are amazing, offering an endless variety of options for moving and stretching my body; each workout session is different than the previous one.  

I appreciate the flexibility and strength I have gained. The quality of Kyung-Sun's instruction is superb, and the atmosphere in the studio is warm and peaceful. I’m a very satisfied client.

About Kyung-sun Baek

Certified GYROTONIC® Instructor

Born and raised in South Korea, Kyung-sun’s successful career as a modern dancer in Korea and the Netherlands gave her a rich background for what she gradually discovered to be her deeper calling in life: helping women feel fit, free and empowered using the power of their whole body & mind.


Kyung-sun moved from the Netherlands to the United States eight years ago to start a family with her husband (who grew up in Maine). Their daughter is now 7, and goes to the Maine Coast Waldorf school in Freeport.

Exemplary and knowledgeable Gyrotonic Coaching

I have been working with a Gyrotonic trainer for the past 8 years and most recently had an opportunity to attend a Gyrotonic session with Kyung-sun. I found Kyung-sun’s coaching ability to be exemplary, with her coaching background and knowledge of body movements notwithstanding. Her instructions were easy to follow. Through her recommendations, I learned new ways to overcome some limitations I have been troubled with in the past. I would encourage anyone interested in restoring or maintaining total body health to schedule a session with Kyung-sun to experience the many benefits that can be obtained through Gyrotonics!

Everyone can benefit from Kyung Sun's expertise

Kyung Sun is an incredible gyrotonics teacher! I am a professional ballet dancer who came to her for help dealing with back and shoulder injuries. As a former professional dancer herself, she has a deeply nuanced sense of how the body moves. She has helped me regain strength and mobility and within four sessions I was pain-free in my daily activities outside of dance!

In addition to building strength and mobility she also trains correct muscle firing patterns, develops both slow twitch and quick twitch muscle response (by changing the rhythm of the same exercise after several repetitions), and integrates the breath with hands-on feedback. Gyrotonics creates pelvic and spinal stability in a much subtler, more comprehensive way than anything you can do at the gym. The eccentric (as opposed to concentric) approach of many of the excises develops long, lean muscle with a wide range of motion.

Kung-sun is a wonderful Gyrotonic instructor

Kung-sun is a wonderful Gyrotonic instructor. With all her knowledge about the body, Kyung-sun is excellent at helping me become more aware and connected to my own body. She helps me quickly identify where I might need to strengthen or increase flexibility. She is patient, encouraging and supports you feeling comfortable learning and doing all the movements. When I finish a session I feel flexible, well-balanced and strong. I so enjoy working with Kyung-Sun and love doing gyrotonic exercise!

She knew exactly what my body needed

Kyung-sun has keen insight and an intuitive understanding in her work with people. I felt she was able to know exactly what my body needed and how to approach me with clear direction and a gentle manner. After our session on the mat and working with the Gyrotonic machine I felt ease in my joints as well as a fuller range of motion. I love the weight bearing and circular action of the machine’s movement. Afterwards my body felt spacious, relaxed, stronger and alive! Kyung-sun’s experience and knowledge gave me great confidence in her ability to help me.

I feel incredibly lucky and grateful to have found Kyung-sun and Gyrotonic. 

I have noticed a great deal of difference in how I move and I feel my strength and flexibility are increasing. My alignment is getting better each week and I find that Gyrotonics is a great antidote for the effects of gravity and aging as it is making my spine and joints more flexible!

I love the grace and evolving nature of Gyrotonics—how no two classes are the same. This is an exercise that I want to keep up for as long as I can. I believe that the sessions are great for my both my body and my mind. They are fun, interesting and challenging in the best possible way.

The one-on-one classes are fantastic because I know I’m doing each exercise precisely and correctly. Kyung-sun is an amazing teacher and I totally trust that she will push me, but not too far or too fast, so I will avoid injury, yet maximize the time and effort I put in.

I am completely delighted with the sessions—I can’t think of a thing I'd improve. Kyung-sun is a gifted teacher who makes each session interesting, productive and fun. I look forward to each one and feel incredibly lucky and grateful to have found Kyung-sun and Gyrotonic.

Feeling lighter, yet more connected and grounded

I have loved both my UZAZU and GYROTONIC sessions, it was very helpful to be able to focus on my body (GYROTONIC exercise) when I found it difficult to open up during UZAZU sessions. This process is already helping my body to feel lighter, yet also very connected and grounded. Kyung-sun is such a warm and kind person, it is so easy to feel comfortable with her and her guidance. She always gives me simple ways that I can "practice" at home between sessions which has been a great way for me to integrate what we do during sessions into every day life.

Having done Pilates for about 10 years, I prefer Gyrotonics

Kyung-sun is an amazing teacher. She is knowledgeable, kind and inspirational. I look forward to each session. Having done Pilates for about 10 years, I prefer Gyrotonics, as it is kinder and gentler on my neck and back and is more enjoyable.

I am so excited to continue working with her

Kyung-sun Baek is incredibly knowledgable and has the rare ability of completely understanding the human body and the way that you move individually. She finds your greatest weaknesses and helps you work through them as well as helping you understand how to fix them yourself in the future. I am so excited to continue working with her and hope that it will bring greater movement to my everyday activities as well as my movement in ballet.
