It takes a hospitality rockstar to champion a truly Member-first, quality health club experience in New York City. Tonya continues to prove she is just that. With an unwavering commitment to service, wellness and inclusivity, Tonya has established Mercedes Club as Manhattan's premier health & fitness destination.

"Whatever you do, you should do it well and give it your very best. If you are always striving for excellence, then you are always working hard and giving it your best naturally. Excellence in all aspects - Member service, employee relations, fiscal performance,  cleanliness & facility esthetics."

Steadfast Leadership

Anyone who knows Tonya, knows that communication, honesty, and integrity are the foundation of her world-class approach to management. Her energy and confidence are truly contagious, and the environment she has developed at Mercedes Club is second to none.

"To be a great leader, you need to be an even better communicator. Be honest, clear and concise. Cultivate confidence. Be a good listener and use empathy. Most of all, be self aware.

Be passionate in everything you do. Making people happy is when I feel most accomplished, whether it's a Member or an employee, I feel great satisfaction when I can solve a problem and turn a negative into a positive."


Tonya began her career as a formally trained dancer, touring the world and performing at luxury resorts and top-tier venues. In 1993, she moved to New York City and put her training and passion for fitness to work as a group exercise instructor. Possessing an insatiable thirst for learning, Tonya was mentored by industry leading executives that taught her the business ropes of the fitness landscape firsthand. From an early age, Tonya sought out and soaked up the most invaluable of industry knowledge, and it shows.

Tonya's career flourished from the ground up and she has spent over 20 years within the luxury sports and fitness sector; leading and managing all aspects of the day-to-day operations at world renowned health and fitness establishments including Reebok Sports Club/NY, Sports Club/LA and now, Mercedes Club.Tonya's commitment to quality, five-star service and her undeniable passion for success - not just for herself, but for everyone around her - is something we should all seek to emulate.
