TONE UP

TONE UP

Are you looking to do workouts that will help you tone up, lean out, and notice a difference in how your clothes fit? This is the #LeSweatGoal for you.

Toning up calls for a mixture of building muscle and redistributing tissues around the body. The best way to achieve this is by combining a regular exercise routine with compound exercises and a balanced diet consisting of more whole foods and less processed foods.

EQUIPMENT
All you need to do these workouts is a set of weights, and some of the classes are bodyweight only. It is recommended to have dumbbells for some of these workouts to help build muscle.

FREQUENCY
We recommend doing 3 to 6 total body workouts per week for maximum results. Repeating and revisiting workouts you have already completed is highly recommended. We suggest adding weights to reach your goals as you complete more workouts.

RECOMMENDED CHALLENGES*
Looking for a more structured program? We suggest trying one--or all--of our Le Sweat Challenges:
28-Day Break Le Sweat Challenge
Le Sweat Yourself Strong Challenge #1 thru #4
7-Minute Abs Challenges #1 or #2
28-Day Upper Body Challenge

*Tip: Download the calendar from your challenge of choice for the full class list:

HOW TO TRACK PROGRESS
The best way to keep track of your progress is by knowing your baseline or starting fitness levels. We recommend taking the Le Sweat Fitness Test before you begin and then again 1x a month after that.
