You can find your challenges either on the

We’ll also be posting often to the blog at ToneItUp.com
Make sure you’re on our mailing list!
Every day we want you to do something to sweat :) YES, everyday! Your ‘rest days’ will be a walk, stretch yoga class, your foam roller workout with us – something! This way it’s still part of your routine and it becomes your lifestyle.
We’ll also be posting a weekly workout schedule, every Sunday. See this week’s schedule HERE!
The weekly schedule includes your toning workouts. If you go to a class at your gym, that counts too!!!
There will be 20 winners EVERY WEEK! 10 will receive gift packs (announcing what’s inside this week’s gift pack tomorrow) and 10 check-ins will be featured on the ToneItUp Instagram! Winners will be chosen by check-ins ~ consistent workouts, meals, recipes, motivational quotes and support to others in the community :) We’re watching!
What about cardio??
We are challenging you to 100 by Halloween!!!! If you’re new to Tone It Up, welcome! This means, we want you to complete “100 miles by Halloween.” These miles can be walking, running, biking, elliptical etc. There’s 40 days until Halloween, including today. That equals 2.5 miles every day. Whether you run them or walk them, FIT. THEM. IN! If you bike, divide the miles by 3. Ex. 9 miles = 3 toward your 100 by halloween. What about your 40 minute HIIT routine on your Beach Babe DVD? That counts towards 4 miles! Average every 10 minutes = “1 mile.”
The hashtag for your cardio is #100byHalloween
This is your new cardio & toning routine that is on your weekly schedule! We’ll be uploading a short instagram video showing you how to do the moves on Tuesday :) @ToneItUp

What is my Booty Call® Workout?
There’s a little hash tag buzzing around on twitter, and it’s not what you think. #BootyCall is your TIU Booty Call. This team wakes up 30-60 minutes early to sneak in a fat burning workout – a walk, jog, yoga, workout DVD – anything! Just get moving first thing to burn stubborn fat, awaken your heart and mind, break a quick sweat and to start your day off a few steps closer to your goals. We promise, this will become a habit. We are not naturally morning people, but this is something that is part of our day.. if we don’t get it in, we don’t feel right! If you want, coffee and a piece of fruit is best before your workout and then having your breakfast after.
We’re counting on you in the morning. Imagine us waking you up and saying ‘DO THIS FOR YOU! You will not regret it’. Your alarm better be set!! :) Set it 30 minutes early & sneak it in! Studies show that people who workout first thing in the morning burn a slightly higher percentage of fat AND are more likely to stick to a program and lose inches with a fat burning program. It increases your core temperature for the rest of the day :) Do you workout later in the day? That’s okay! Sneak in your BootyCall, but make it a walk, a 20 minute stretch session, a HIIT routine so later you can focus on toning or even a little stroll with the hubby before you get your day going. Turn it into something that benefits you and your life.
*** If you’re our 4:30 am workers, add 1 mile or 10 minutes to your cardio later!
We also challenge you to plan activity on the weekends. Remember what we say about weekends. For every Friday, Saturday & Sunday you take off from working out & eating healthy, that’s almost HALF of the MONTH!!! The weekends count more than ever to reach your goals. It can mean up to a 4.3 pound weight loss (or gain) in a month. We challenge you to workout both Saturday & Sunday this weekend. Even if it’s a day at the park with your family, a quick 20 minute HIIT workout in the mornings or a sweat session with a friend.. fit it in! If you have events to attend, eat healthy and choose low calorie options – no fried food! Also, choose a glass of champagne over sugary drinks or a glass of wine. You’ll thank us later ;)
