Toni has an extensive background in sports and fitness. She was a world class racquetball player from 1984-1993. Developing a love for racquetball at an early age, Toni earned a scholarship to Memphis State University where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration/Marketing and was the #1 Woman’s Singles player for 4 consecutive years. Other notable achievements include 10 National Titles in both singles and doubles, and as a member of the US Team during that span, Toni proudly lead the team to seven World Championships.
Toni was honored by the US Olympic Committee in 1988 for her prowess in racquetball and named Athlete of the Year. She was also nominated for the prestigious Sullivan Award. Toni served as ambassador of the sport through international competition and traveled the globe playing good will tours. She was also ranked #3 on the Women’s Professional Racquetball Tour.
Toni’s passion for fitness and sports continued off the court as well. Her monthly column in Killshot Magazine on mental toughness was appropriately titled the “Competitive Edge” and gave readers the edge they needed to achieve their specific individual goals. Toni could not have accomplished everything alone. She contributes much of her success to working diligently with a Sport Psychologist, Personal Trainer, and Nutritionist.
After retiring from the sport she loved, Toni thrived in business, too. She owned and operated two successful retail stores for five years before entering the sales arena where she earned four Salesperson of the Year Awards. In 2012, Pro Kennex Racquetball presented Toni with the Contributer Award for support and contributions to the success and sales growth of Pro Kennex Racquetball. Currently, Toni is an avid mountain bike rider and a fitness enthusiast. She has continued her education and is a Certified Sport Psychology Coach.
Toni is married and the proud parent of 2 beautiful boys, Kai(15) and Dylan(14). After enjoying her time as a stay-at-home mom, she has decided to turn her passion for sports and fitness into a career to help others. Her dream is to share her knowledge and experience as a world class athlete to help others live a healthy life style and achieve their personal goals in sports, and life.
For me, winning isn’t something that happens suddenly on the field when the whistle blows and the crowds roar. Winning is something that builds physically and mentally every day that you train and every night that you dream.
