Definition & Toning


Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.

Definition & Toning exercises are physical exercises that are used with the aim of developing a physique with a large emphasis on musculature. In this context, the term toned implies leanness in the body (low levels of body fat), noticeable muscle definition and shape, but not significant muscle size (“bulk”).

Why train for achieving a defined and toned muscle ?

Muscle tone is the level of visibility of your muscles which is also commonly referred to as definition.
Having muscle tone means you can see the outlines of the muscles under your skin. Everyone has the muscles but not everyone is toned or defined which allows the muscles to be visible.

Muscle Tone really refers to Body Composition
Your body is covered with skin which has a layer of subcutaneous fat which covers. If you have a high percentage of body fat which is covering your body you will not show muscle tone.If you have a body fat percentage which is higher than average you have to lose some your body fat in order to improve your muscle tone. If you have a body fat percentage which is lower than average or lean, you have to build muscle to increase your muscle tone.

There are no secrets about which exercises or diets improve muscle tone just the plain, simple science behind body composition. If you burn more calories than you consume you will gain body mass, if you burn fewer calories in exercising than you consume you will lose body mass.
