Owner/Dir. of Training - Energy Fitness

Since 2002 Tonya has brought her passion for fitness and customer-service excellence to Energy Fitness. Energy Fitness is a boutique personal training, nutrition coaching and massage therapy studio located in Memphis, TN. In Feb. 2020 she will be relocating it to Travelers Rest, SC and continuing helping people. Tonya loves teaching a holistic approach to fitness and nutrition while inspiring her clients to believe in themselves. Now she can do more hands on treatment to help sports enthusiasts be free of injury or offer injury management treatment protocols, help clients with chronic or nagging pain and be more mobile as well as do detox body wraps.

Owner/Dir. of Training - Energy Fitness

As of March 2020 I now also provide clients with virtual personal training (30 minutes) in small or larger packages. Tuesdays and Thursdays are my availability. For more information check out my website at www.energymemphis.com

Bodywork

Owner/Dir. of Training

Whilst at Energy Fitness I was able to supervise an amazing staff of massage therapists. In line with my holistic lifestyle and helping others reach optimal health we used M'Lis Contour Body Wraps. In May I received my training and certification by M'Lis to provide this service. As a student of massage therapy I may be able to offer this service. Ask the owner if possible. I have limited student hours but would be glad to provide if possible. Check with Mae and my availability as well.

Student - Carolina School of Massage, Greenville, SC

Dec. 1, 2020 I will be available for student massages between the hours of 9:15 a.m. - 3 p.m. on most Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. See schedule for availability. I would love to help you reach your goals and help you feel your best!

Wellness

Physical Director - Fogelman Downtown YMCA, Memphis, TN

Right out of graduate school I received a management position in charge of Fitness, Sports, Aquatics & Safety. This allowed me to put systems in place for the fitness and aquatics staff in order to help bring optimal health to all of YMCA members seeking better health.

Meditation

Owner/Dir. of Training

I received Reiki 2 certification in which I was able to use with my personal training clients as well as friends or coworkers. One of my massage therapists also introduced me to chakra testing as well as crystal healing.

REVIEWS for my Bodywork or Wellness services

by Pam on Jan 16
I liked the cupping. This was new. She got into the flutes which were tender and the crunchiness in my upper back where I hold my stress.
by Anonymous on Jan 12
She is very knowledgeable and certified in other modalities too. To know she has a background as a personal trainer is great and I love how she uses it to create her own style. I can highly recommend her.

Tanya displayed a very broad range of skills, applying several different techniques. Her experience is very evident. I felt very good after the massage.
