Ooltewah resident Tonya Ransom is cooking up more ways to help people lose weight. A former sergeant for the Chattanooga Police Department, she has gotten up in the morning to help busy women find a way to squeeze in that vital daily workout since founding B.U.S.Y. Body Fitness in 2009. She is now folding her Antoinette’s (Your Way) Catering into the mix.
Antoinette’s is elegant food with a Southern flair, she said.
“You’re going to get it like Grandma fixed it,” she said, but Ransom does it without the fried chicken or bacon drippings, and with creamy pasta and vegetable dishes garnished with other colorful vegetables like carrots and tomatoes.

Tonya Ransom wants your body. But just for 28 days. She says you’ll feel great when she’s done.
Ransom is the creator of B.U.S.Y. Body Boot Camp, an innovative four-week fitness program in which she takes the workouts to where her clients are.
“I take people who don’t know what to do, and I ask them to commit to me for 28 days. Then, just like in the military, I act as their drill sergeant. By the end, they should be able to hear me in their heads,” she says, laughing.

Tonya Ransom knows about stress. The creator of Busy Bodies fitness is a single mother and business owner.
“I have all the challenges — feeling like I don’t have enough time, trying to raise an 8-year-old, cooking dinner, grocery shopping. All the same challenges my clients have, I experience those,” she said.
To alleviate her stress and increase her energy level, Ransom turns to exercise.
