Question by musiqschild: Can Pilates be a toning as well as cardio exercise regiment?

  1. Swimming and Pilates can be toning.

    Any use of muscles will tone them. Tonus comes from use with resistance and simply moving them in gravity provides some resistance. Adding a weight lifting routine will also add tonus.

    See a Pilates instructor for the best advice.
