Toni Manzon | Owner
Toni has been instructing fitness for over 20 years. Her love of fitness was discovered after taking a group exercise class at the age of 13. She has since transformed this passion into a career and her livelihood, something she can work at everyday. The most rewarding part of the job for her is motivating others to push themselves and improve their strength and overall well-being.
Along with instructing group classes, Toni is an ACE (American Council on Exercise) certified personal trainer. She excels both in one-on-one and group-based training, specifically targeting individual needs. Helping others achieve their goals and leave a workout with a sense of achievement is what inspires Toni daily.
Opening her own studio has been a dream of hers since day one. By doing so she has created an environment comfortable yet beneficial for all fitness levels. She offers a variety of classes suitable for people of all different fitness needs. Whether you enjoy Pilates, Barre, or a more traditional cardio/strength format, she is guaranteed to offer an approach that will keep you engaged by making the workout not only challenging but fun as well.

Gemma has been dancing since the age of 3 under the direction of Paulette Harwood. She has studied ballet, jazz, modern, lyrical, tap, and hip-hop. In hopes of bringing the joy (and hard work) of dance to adults, she developed Dance for Fitness Program: The BeautyBarre. This program is designed to find the fun in fitness and the elegance and beauty of working hard by utilizing specific movement and choreography. Rooted from true dance form, the structure of each class is designed to work, motivate, and excite each student, all while providing a great workout. The goal of the program is to make every person leave the class feeling strong, confident, and beautiful. No dance experience needed.

Joellyn is passionate about fitness and nutrition and enjoys helping her clients create and reach their personal fitness goals. She teaches an average of 20-25 hours a week and always enjoys meeting new people.
