    Hey nat

    This is the right place to come. One thing I will say is that toning per sé doesn't exist. Tone is simply the low levels of contractile activity across a muscle at rest, giving the appearance of firmness. Tone is gained through any type of repetitive exercise and also through lifting heavy weights. It does not take long to gain muscle tone, and if you are regularly working out you already have most of the muscle tone you will ever have. What you want is to either lose weight or gain muscle or both. Muscle tone is lost only if you do little or no exercise for several months or even a year.

    Head down to female questions, there are some great female veterans on here that give great workout advice.

    I shouldn't really be explaining this here, since this is just the welcoming forum, sorry Vette, Nark .

    Welcome! I am a newbie too, but I feel like I'm getting a pretty good grasp on things now (like what to ask, where to ask and what not to ask) cause I've been on this site 24/7 for the past couple of weeks (which is NOTHING, make sure you take advantage of all the wonderful vets on this site). Please feel free to contact me with any newbie type questions - since I have already made an dumbaa$$ of myself a couple of times by posting questions/responses that i shouldn't have =)
