Hello, my name is Dianne Villano. I help busy men and women over 35 who struggle to look and feel their best and teach them how to eat more, train less, and get better results than they’ve ever experienced.

Raving Fans

"I didn’t think this weight loss program would be so easy! I dropped 20 pounds eating deliscious foods and working out 3X/week. I know I keep saying that but it’s true! At 63 years old I thought I’d never look and feel this good again! Seriously, I feel like 40 now" - Pattie A, Tierra Verde, Fl

"As a 10X full Ironman finisher, I foolishly came in thinking it would be easy given my background and boy was I wrong. Every time you think you’re getting the hang of it Dianne adds an extra twist to increase the difficulty . I lost 10 lbs and my strength increased." - Tony S , St Pete. Fl

"I had my doubts when I came in on the 14 day rapid results program, however I have become a true believer in the program. In 2 weeks, I had already begun seeing results, both physically and mentally. I feel better, make healthier food choices (most of the time), and am excited for every workout. I thoroughly enjoy the group setting and I appreciate the opportunity to develop new friendships with the other group members!" - Caren, St Pete

"After interviewing a number of different trainers, I met Dianne. My initial impression was that she was knowledgeable in her field and extremely enthusiastic. Being a physician, it was very important that I work with a trainer that had a solid understanding of the science behind the exercises, understood the importance of a multifaceted approach to to a wellness a lifestyle, including not only the physical exercise regimen but also the n nutritional and psychological aspects of their client in order to help them achieve a sustainable, healthy lifestyle for the long haul The bottom line is this: If you a are serious and committed to getting yourself in shape and developing a healthy a and sustainable nutrition and fitness program, then Custom Bodies is where you need to go….It’s as simple as that." - Dr. Michael Sprintz
