There are many things I can say about the high quality of service I provide to my clients, but probably none would be as credible as testimonials from some of my clients themselves.  So please take a moment to read some of the many responses I have received. I hope you will see how my experience, integrity, and ability help them achieve their fitness goals.

Hi Yadi,

Not only have you been a fantastic motivator for me you have been so understanding about my physical limitations. I really appreciated how you arranged my program to be really challenging but I never once felt that I would re-injure my arm that I had hurt playing tennis last year. 

In fact your program has not only improved the strength and mobility of my arm but allowed me to reach my personal goals regarding weight and flexibility that I told you I wanted to achieve.

Also because of the program you designed for me I no longer had to continue with my physiotherapy sessions.  My physio therapist was so pleased with my progress  that he discharged me!

I have been very impressed with your abilities and have told any of my friends about your services.

Once again a very big thank you"

"Hi Yadi!
Thank you so much for working with me for the past six months! You were very motivating and encouraging. I am thrilled with the results I have seen and have learned a lot about proper form, nutrition and strength training. You have a very positive and gentle approach that was perfect for a beginner like me. I liked the variety you planned in each session, especially the quick /variety of the "burn" phase. I hope to work with you again in the fall.

“My name is Susana. I started personal training about 4 months ago and I was lucky enough to have Yadi as my trainer. Since the beginning, she always had a smile on her face and an energetic attitude towards training and life. I got very well along with her and I felt like she was such a sincere, caring, kind-hearted and honest person. Through every single session we have had, I've seen a big difference from when we started. Yadi is very professional, committed, she makes me feel content and not ashamed about who i am or what I look like, she is always pushing me to do better, and always has a positive attitude. I want to thank Yadi for always putting us (her clients) as her priority, for giving me hope, for being as kind as she is, and most importantly for helping me become a better version of myself. I am very glad I met Yadi through  and I very much so look forward to our next months of training."

"Yadi Dissassa is elegant, patient, and understanding.  She knows how difficult working out can be sometimes, especially when you're just starting out - she's been there herself.  She is very knowledgeable about health, fitness & nutrition and is always willing to share information with her clients.  A great motivator, Yadi's is tough but fair, her workouts follow the "no pain, no gain" philosophy.  I would highly recommend Yadi as a personal trainer to anyone!"

"I have been overweight all of my 62 years. A year ago now my wife got me to start seeing Yadi. I knew (in my head) that I needed to get healthier, but I wasn't particularly enthusiastic.

But Yadi quickly won me over with her kindness, her competence, and her philosophy -- which shuns the "quick-fix" or a focus on manipulating numbers and insists on the long, careful change process that creates genuine health.

I have grown more healthy over the year, and have more energy and less weight. The weight loss has been gradual and continual.

Early on I was dealing with osteo-arthritis in my left knee, and had to see a knee surgeon. For as long as was needed, Yadi adapted her work with me to the instructions from the knee surgeon and incorporated some of the exercises I had been paying a physio for into our warm-up time each session.

Yadi has a great sense of humour and is a delight to work with. I recommend her highly, for through her I have been given a new lease on life."

" Dear Yadi,

I want to thank you for all you have done during these past 9 months. From you, I learned some very valuable lessons not just for fitness but about health and life itself. I enjoyed every single one of our sessions, no matter how tough they were.  Thank you for being so dedicated, sharing your experiences, being patient, encouraging me and helping me become a better version of myself."

"Dear Yadi,

What a year it has been!  I will be forever grateful for your partnership and commitment to our journey of wellness.  I am stronger, lighter and no longer intimidated by the gym & equimpment.


Thank you for everything!


Mary M.


Thanks so much for all your help over the past year.  I'm healthier and stronger and feel so much better than 1 year ago!"
