History of the Diodatics System

To be strong in body , mind and spirit is the greatest gifts to work and pray for.” Joseph Michael Diodati

FATHER AND DAUGHTER CREATE THE WORLD'S MOST REVOLUTIONARY WEIGHT TRAINING APPARATUS AND SYSTEM

Joseph Michael Diodati
Inventor of the Revolutionary
Diodatics Weights

Diodatics Weight Training system was created by Ann Marie, 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 and 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 weight training. In a few years, he placed fifth in The Mr. America and opened Diodati's Health Studio for men.

Over the next 50 years, he built the largest health club in Canada, opened the first weight training gym for women and invented and patented the Diodatics Weights. He taught thousands of people 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 in Canada.

Diodati's Health Studio held the powerlifting championship for seven consecutive years and produced several Canadian Champions.

Joe had a God given dream one night and saw thousands of triangular shaped weights in a large warehouse. For years he was thinking of designing a new weight, but was unsure about the design of the weight, until he had the dream.

While the dream was still fresh in his mind, he got up and cut out a prototype. A few years later he won a US patent and manufactured thousands of Diodatics Weights.  

Ann Marie created workouts for every body! She understands the amazing benefits of weight training and she knows that most people do not know how to effectively weight train.  She is so happy to pass on her father's weights along with her time tested workouts.

Joe introduced Canada's first women-exclusive weight training club in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario in 1979. He meticulously trained his daughters, Linda and Ann Marie, to effectively instruct women in weight training techniques, resulting in remarkable transformations. The women sculpted and toned their bodies while efficiently burning fat through tailored weight training programs. Joe's pioneering efforts conclusively demonstrated the superior efficacy of weight training over solely focusing on aerobics or cardio for achieving optimal physical fitness.

Ann Marie followed in her father's footsteps and has spent the last 45 years working in all aspects of the fitness industry, teaching the Diodatics workouts at gyms and community centers. She is now excited to bring her time-tested and proven system to homes across America.
