WEIGHT TRAINING FOR EVERY BODY
How We Started
Diodatics Weight Training for Every Body was established by Ann Marie Diodati to continue the legacy of her father, Joseph Michael Diodati, the inventor of the Diodatics Weights. He was born in 1929 in Sault Ste. Marie in Ontario, Canada and grew up as a skinny teenager who desired to have muscles and strength. He went to his doctor for advice yet was told he would always be skinny.
Joseph did not accept his doctors advice and started to read every book possible about bodybuilding. He got a group of friends together and began to do weight training. In a few years, he opened Diodati's Health Studio for men.
Four decades later, he built the largest health club in Canada and taught thousands of men how to effectively and efficiently weight train for bodybuilding, weight loss, and overall good health.
Joe was responsible for building up some of the strongest men with the best physique in Canada. Diodati's Health Studio held the powerlifting championship for seven consecutive years and produced several Mr. Canadas over the years.
In 1979, Joe opened the first weight training club exclusively for women. He trained his daughters, Linda and Ann Marie how to effectively teach the new members. The members got amazing results!! The women not only sculpted and toned their bodies they efficiently and effectively burned body fat from the weight training programs. Joe proved that weight training was more effective for the body than doing strictly aerobics classes.
In August 1984, Joe got a call in the middle of the night. His health club was on fire. Diodati's health studio was completely destroyed by fire and it took seven long years for the insurance company to compensate Joe.
Joe made the best of the seven years and that is when he invented, patented, and manufactured thousands of Diodatics. The design of the Diodatics came to Joe in a dream. The Diodatics Workouts are now being taught all over the world!!!
