Fitness toning is the pursuit of achieving lean body mass in order to have clearly defined muscles. There are some common myths about fitness toning. It is not the case that one has to spend a large amount of the time in the gym doing highly specialized training routines in order to achieve the type of toned body desired. The two major tips on which one ought to rely for fitness toning are in the realm of nutrition and cardiovascular exercise.

Everybody’s muscles appear relatively the same. Everybody has a set of six pack abs and defined biceps. It is just a matter of how much body fat is on top of the muscles that determine how toned a person’s body looks. Since the defining factor of whether or not a person appears tone is the percentage of body fat that one possesses, someone interested in improving their fitness toning technique needs to find ways to keep their body fat low.

The first, and most important of the ways to keep your body fat low is to eat a healthy a low-fat diet. The way anyone’s body appears is basically the end result of the food that they put into their body. If someone is eating above their recommended daily intake of calories for one day, and the food that they are eating is fatty, they are going to have a very difficult time cutting down on their body fat. Someone who is looking to achieve a more toned body should stay below or just around their recommended daily intake of calories, which is determined by age, gender, and the intensity of their workout regimen. Some people think that restricting the amount of food itself is a good way to achieve fat reduction in their body. If one aims too far below their recommended daily intake of calories, it can be detrimental to fat loss and cause other serious healthy problems.

The second most important tip for fitness toning is cardiovascular exercise. Cardiovascular exercise is any type of exercise demanding constant movement over an extended period of time, which as a result forces one’s heart rate to be increased over that period of time. After about fifteen or so minutes of cardiovascular activity, the human body begins to use its storage of fat cells for energy. If someone is looking to improve their fitness toning, he or she ought to do at least three cardiovascular exercise routines of at least fifteen minutes per week. Someone who is serious about their fitness toning should exercise about a half hour for maximum results. Jogging, swimming, bicycling, walking, and the use of elliptical machines are all good examples of cardiovascular workouts.
