Well, nobody ever just do toning alone; it's not a stand-alone exercise.
It's done with this entire package thrown in, you know, for your optimal fitness and for a well-balanced workout.
First, you warm up to raise your body temperature and warm up your muscles to prepare them for the toning workout ahead.
Second, you get your heart and lungs exercised through cardio so that they're in tip-top condition. And you burn body fat as well.
Third, you sculpt beautiful curves and definitions into your muscles (by the way, this is the meaty part of your exercise!).
Fourth, you cool down to take care of your heart.
And fifth, you stretch to gain flexibility in your muscles.......
I say, doesn't this fit the bill of an overall balanced exercise program?
After these "grueling" sessions, how about replenish your body with a muscle repair meal?
