Muscle-Toning Fitness Equipment
A toned body doesn't mean big muscles!
It means a great body for the beach in summer. It means reducing flab on arms and dimples on legs. It's that "sporty look" that makes you feel confident and happy.
There's no doubt that toned muscles can't be seen under a layer of fat, so weight control is critical, but after that, toning up your muscles is best done with the equipment listed below;
