Exciting new things are coming
Embarking on the transformative journey of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro and immersing myself in the villages of Tanzania has profoundly changed my perspective on life. This experience, shifting my outlook by 1000%, has fueled a deep desire to make a positive impact on others.
Throughout the past five years, I’ve shared numerous fulfilling experiences with you, uniting people, inspiring movement, fostering relationships, and serving our community. On December 20th, 2023, I’ll begin a sabbatical to dedicate time to a new mission focused on charitable work. While I have ongoing projects, they demand my complete commitment.
For abotti, changes are on the horizon. My last classes under the abotti name will be on December 19th, including abotti on the go. The abotti Christmas Party on December 1st, benefiting the Stouffville Food Bank, will still take place. I’ll remain involved with the P3 team, continue hosting Cheatin Hearts events, and MUDGIRL next year is confirmed.
In the following weeks, I’ll personally contact active members to discuss memberships and punch cards. Your understanding during this significant change is appreciated. My decision stems from following my heart and soul, and I hope you choose to remain active until our last day together.
While our journey takes a different turn, the strong bonds we’ve forged endure. I encourage you to continue spreading positivity and embracing life’s adventures.
Standing at the crossroads, gratitude and excitement fill me. Our shared chapter has been incredible, and a new one awaits with endless possibilities. Keep me in your thoughts as I embrace this new chapter, and let’s collectively anticipate the bright future ahead.
Your support, understanding, and encouragement mean the world to me, and I look forward to sharing this journey with all of you.
Creator of abotti
I am the You Do You – low impact, group fitness instructor who incorporates everyday practical movements into a FUN and non-judgemental aerobic experience. Having lost over 140lbs and kicking diabetes to the curb, I can personally relate to how challenging and scary it might be to start your journey to health and wellness. As the creator of abotti, I have taken my life experiences and developed a program that is inclusive to all, no matter your age, gender, fitness level or ability.

Check out some of our success stories
“Whatever the reasons….doesn’t matter; what does matter is I now can move!…and everyday I move a little more!
Thank you Antonietta….one day last winter; I called Antonietta from my car and asked if she could help me….together we talked and we cried; would I ever be able to do some type of activity. She proceeded in sharing her story with me and instantly I felt what I have never felt at a gym….”she gets it, she feels me, she understands”.
You do You sounds like a cliché but it truly a Mantra that everyone lives by here at the Abotti studio; I am accepted and I can now be part of something for me; I smile, I move, I feel sooo good about myself; I belong!
Since then, Antonietta has introduced “Chair One”, Abotti Step, Abotti Strength and I participate in all of them …. Because I can do it…I do me!
Antonietta, thank you for letting me part of the Abotti Tribe, well its more like the Abotti Family!”
“abotti with Antonietta has not only changed my life. It’s given me a purpose and a challenge. As a cardiac survivor, I’ve gone through many emotions. Terrified to exercise, scared to be part of a large group setting, suffered from anxiety and depression. Antonietta is an incredibly genuine leader who prides herself and her program on being non judgemental. Her encouraging voice and contagious smile have allowed me to be part of a welcoming community. I’ve gone from being terrified to adventurous. Abotti offers many different programs that I can do without fear. My anxiety and depression have improved so much. I put myself out there without hesitation. I’ve met some amazing people. And most importantly I no longer worry about my heart stopping during activity. My stamina is better then it has been in years.
I highly recommend the Abotti program to anyone interested in bringing activity into their lives. You will not be disappointed.”
“I’ve known Antonietta for over 3 years now, ever since I was the only guy walking into her class in Aurora. You won’t find a more welcoming person, eager to help everyone become more fit and healthy.
Early 2020, the COVID Pandemic caused her in-person classes to be cancelled. Was that the end? No! Antonietta started offering classes via Zoom through that summer.
At first, it was just people who had attended her classes in several local towns. Then more people joined from around the GTA. Then more from across Canada and the U.S.! And a Community was born! It’s such a community that people are becoming friends! Many now visit each other in person (safely, in accordance with local restrictions, etc.) and many enjoy walking, hiking, and cycling in addition to the abotti classes!
There are now hundreds of people of all ages (anywhere from about 4 or 5 to 80!) and fitness levels participating in a variety of classes, with a variety of instructors, all week long.
If you want to become healthier while making new friends, I highly recommend joining the abotti classes that meet your physical (and mental) health needs, budget, and schedule.”
