“Iwona is an incredible trainer. She is extremely knowledgeable, motivated and fun to work with. She has transformed my post baby body. Nothing is to much for her and she goes above and beyond to help you and make you feel that you can do this. I highly recommend her whatever your fitness level is!”

Basel, CH

“I have really enjoyed the training sessions with Iwona. She is an extremely good trainer and very professional in her approach. I would definitely recommend her to anyone a bit older (like myself!) who is looking to get fitter and tone up a somewhat flabby body!”

Southampton, UK

Iwona is the only fitness trainer who got me to stick to my program and see results. She is just the right combination of challenging and relaxed that makes me want to work harder – plus she is excellent company! Cannot recommend her enough

Basel, CH

“Really enjoyed the training sessions i have had at the common, really feel like i’ve exercised properly afterwards unlike at the gym. The workouts Iwona has given me at home really push me as well and i believe if i continue to follow these 3 times a week i will have the toned bikini body i am looking for.”

Southampton, UK

“Even on those days where you feel like you want to cuddle up on a sofa with a pot of tea, Iwona manages to get you excited for her lesson within a heart beat.
I get great tips every session, which I can use at home as well. What I like most about lessons at Papayaya Fitness, is that your weaknesses and strengths are always taken into account. And of course being outdoors.
Every lesson with Iwona gives me energy and makes me feel fitter!

Basel, CH

Iwona is awesome! Energetic and positive and gets you moving!! I’ve loved doing her classes and look forward to doing more in the future. Have no hesitation in recommending her or her programs!”
