Toning makes you look sleek and feel strong.Try finding a workout buddy. It's hard to find people I know but maybe you will have better luck than I have. Also switch things up so you don't get bored and your muscles stay challenged. Good luck.
A motivational figure is pretty much the only thing that keeps me going back to the gym. For example, before and after pictures for people who made the effort of exercising and see results. It reminds me where I can go.
