Toney taught fitness classes at NYC's top health clubs: Reebok, Chelsea Piers, and Equinox Fitness. Later in Italy, London, Oxford, and Brussels.

Regarding Pilates. Toney believes in it whole-heartedly and is excited about its evolution. Unlike purists, constrained by a snapshot of Pilates in 1967, Toney believes that the Method, which evolved during Joe's lifetime, should continue to evolve along with the ever-changing needs of the populace.
NOTE: Toney offers group training only.
