Beginners guide to Les Millls Tone

We have so many great group fitness classes to offer on our schedules, but there is something special about Les Mills Tone (TONE). If you were to think about what a "tone" class would be you would probably think its mostly light weights working on and off a bench doing hundreds of reps...NOPE! Les Mills Tone is a group fitness class that combines cardio, strength, and core exercises using dumbbells and resistance bands in a 45-55 minute workout. Here is a beginner's guide to Les Mills Tone:

After the warm up you hit steady state cardio and then increase the intensity of the cardio phase through 3 cardio peak tracks.

Core exercises start to get incorporated with a dynamic core track before we hit a lower and upper body strength finishing with functional core and a glute training specific track. We finish off with a cooldown and a stretch.
