Since becoming apart of our Tone community back in August Laura has lost 15lbs and gained a ton of definition and muscle. She works out 4-5 times a week and has started eating cleaner. "I love the accountability that comes with a more intimate setting. Seeing the community of people every week keeps me motivated and I look forward to working out because it's FUN!" Keep up the great work Laura!!
Meet the incredible Carisa who has lost 30 pounds at Tone F1tness in 6 months. More importantly, we are humbled by the happiness that has been brought into Carisa's life. "I came to Tone because I was so overweight, uncomfortable and sad. I knew something had to change. I was not the mom my kids deserved. I had tried forever to exercise and lose weight on my own and struggled. I had heard great things about Tone but had to check it out when a friend raved about the amazing childcare. I knew that I wasn't able to just jump right into a class - I couldn't even walk up a flight of stairs without being severely winded! I saw on their website that they offered personal training. I took a huge step out of my comfort zone and met with Will. It was the best decision. Not only did I increase my strength and endurance but I got more comfortable with the equipment and learned my strengths. I learned to not just focus on weight loss but muscle building. I was able to make an easier transition to into the group classes because of the training.
My favorite thing about Tone is the motivating staff and instructors. Everyone is so helpful and knowledgeable. The other members are always encouraging each other and I think that is because Will, Jodie and Heidi have created such a positive environment. I love that they offer the hardcore classes like Ride, Tritonal and Bootcamp but then I can balance that out with yoga. I have lost 30 pounds so far.
My physical body has gotten so much stronger and healthier but the biggest change has been mental. I'm a much happier person. Tone has helped me realize that working out can be fun, therapeutic and rewarding. It's no longer punishment!" Way to go Carisa!! You are truly an inspiration!
Christy and Jeff have become regulars at Tone F1tness and we love having them as a part of our community!!!
"At Tone, our individuality is recognized, and our opinions matter. Tone instructors go out of their way to make our workouts as enjoyable as possible. There is consistent variety between different instructors as well as different classes by the same instructor. We have noticed our endurance increase over the month, had some weight start to come off, and clothing is starting to get a little bit looser. We attribute the positive and supportive environment at Tone to be a big part of what helps keep us coming back again and again.
We strongly encourage you to come into Tone F1tness and give it a try -- we hope you'll find the environment as supportive and welcoming as we have!" Jeff & Christy Webster
From the time Peter started with us he has seen amazing changes and has kept a smile on his face the entire time. "Nine months ago my wife suggested I participate in a free workout at Tone F1tness. I had never done anything remotely close to a spin class so I was pretty skeptical. At the time I had no idea how big of an impact this place would have on my life. R1DE was the very first class I took at Tone and to say I was nervous would be an understatement. I couldn't even figure out how to lock my shoes into the pedals on the bike! All insecurities aside I knew I was hooked after one workout. Since taking that first R1DE class I knew I had to branch out and see what else Tone had to offer. Whether I am flipping tires in Bootcamp with Will or balancing yoga blocks on my feet in the yoga studio; I always know I am going to be in for a great workout at Tone F1tness.
What truly sets Tone apart from other workout studios is the community aspect. I grew up playing sports so I was always attracted to team environments and that is exactly what a workout at Tone F1tness feels like. The only difference being is that everybody wins at Tone! Since I started working out at Tone F1tness I have lost over 20 lbs and my self confidence is at an all time high. It is such a rewarding experience to exit a workout and know that everyone is cheering you on and sharing in all the highs of a tremendous workout. The lavender towels and grapefruit ginger soap are an added benefit as well!" Way to go Peter, we couldn't be more proud!!
Alexsa & Peter embody motivation. They not only motivate each other at Tone, but also their fellow Ton1es. They show up everyday with a smile on their faces and ready to sweat. Peter said, "It's the first time in our lives we've actually looked forward to working out. And TONEF1TNESS is helping us achieve our goals.

My journey with Tone F1tness began this past Christmas Eve, December 2016. I was 4 weeks postpartum from delivering twins as a gestational surrogate. My doctor suggested that I find a comforting place to start Gentle Yoga. I have never done yoga before, as I have always been intimidated by it. Mainly because I wasn't flexible or had the strength to hold my own body weight. I contacted Tone F1tness and William, the owner got back to me right away. He connected me to Amelia, who has experience with postpartum recovery and fitness. I decided to book my first class on Christmas Eve. I told myself that this was my Christmas present to myself, to be healthy and take care of my body. When I first went to Tone, I was so impressed by the cleanliness of the facility. I also LOVE that I don't have to bring a yoga mat with me. The cold scented lavender towels are also wonderful! Since then I have taken over 70 classes from Tone R1de, Sculpt + Tone, Box + Flow, Gentle and Yin Yoga, and Mixed Levels Vinyasa. I have loved every single one of them. I am constantly being challenged mentally and physically with the variety of classes offered.
Someone once told me that finding the right instructor for yoga would make all the difference in the world, and they were right. I not only found the classes, but the facility as one has been my saving grace. I always look forward to going to my classes and it never feels like a chore. Since December 24th, I have lost 15lbs and counting. But that's not the best part.. since then I have gained so much flexibility, endurance, and strength. My ONE Goal Challenge was to be able to FEEL good again and I can't even explain in words how much better I'm feeling. After 5 pregnancies since 2009, my body has been through a ton of changes. I have three beautiful children of my own ages 7, 5, and 3 years old and I have been a gestational surrogate twice, carrying twins both times. I have been blessed with a wonderful body that has allowed me to grow and nurture 7 gorgeous babies! And now it's time that I nourish and take care of it for doing these amazing things. I am SO thankful to have found Tone F1tness. It's so much more than working out, its a community, a family. I have met some incredible people and it's wonderful to know that everyone truly cares about you and your well being.
Thank you Tone for the love and support from your amazing instructors and staff! From being greeted by Heidi at the Front Desk, to Jodie and William (the owners) saying hello to me by name, and to all the amazing instructors: Amelia, Xochilt, Hayley, Kim, Michele, Sydney, Lexa, Claire, Laura, just to name a few that I've had the pleasure of taking a class with, your passion shines through your teaching! Love you guys. xo ~ Angela P
MacKenzie is due in two weeks and still killing it in every class here!! "I took my first Tone class in June as part of the ‘Mom’s night Out’ event; from that moment I was hooked!! I started coming regularly in early July, and haven’t stopped since. Working out has always been an important part of my life, however Tone has transformed that into a passion and something I genuinely look forward to. From the energy of my two favorite classes, R1de and Tr1Tonal, to the childcare my daughter actually looks forward to attending, to the community feel- I feel like I’ve finally found exactly what I’ve always been looking for. The motivation and encouragement that both the instructors and members provide has kept me coming 4-5 days a week even throughout this pregnancy — I’m already bummed that I’ll have to miss out on classes after having this baby, however I’m looking forward to coming back post baby to get in the best shape of my life that I know only Tone can provide!!! Thank you for creating such a wonderful place to work out, I cannot tell you how happy I am that I found Tone!" -MacKenzie
"I started coming to TONE after getting engaged about a year ago. I knew I wanted to get back into shape and look good for my wedding, but working out in a regular gym just wasn't doing it for me. I love that each class, whether it's bootcamp, ride or yoga challenges you and that each instructor pushes you to do your very best and meet your own personal goals.
I've lost over 20 pounds this past year and feel better than ever! I am so glad I found such a great gym! I have never actually looked forward to working out, let alone had fun while doing so- until I found Tone F1TNESS. Tone truly is my jam!!" -Alex
"This place is so amazing because it's so motivating and fun, I don't feel like I'm working out. If in class I start to slow down the instructors are amazing and keep me going to push myself. When I walk into class I leave the stress of the day at the door and I focus on improving myself mentally and physically and jam to the music. The high you get when you're done and you've gone as hard as you can is addicting! Once class is over you're wondering when the next one is to improve even more! For me if I'm not having fun anymore I don't do it.
These classes and the staff here at Tone F1tness amazes me with fun and a great environment every day... I some times come twice in one day! I'm always early because I'm pumped and want to improve and get in the zone. Even on days where I'm not in the mood or in the mind set I take a cold brew shot and I get my butt in class to get that adrenaline rush and start or end my day right. I'm so grateful I found tone f1tness, it's changed my life. Yay fitness!" AND yay to you Bailey!!!
Only a member of the Tone community for a few short months and she has shown up in a major way. You see Rachel in any and all classes no matter the time! "Since joining Tone in December, working out has taken on a new meaning. I've long been a Lone Ranger when it comes to exercise, especially running and hiking, but what I love most about Tone is the community. The people and the atmosphere here make it a sanctuary. It has never been about comparing yourself to others, it is simply doing your personal best. I have taken almost every class but my favorites are mixed levels vinyasa and early morning bootcamp and tritonal.
I loved being pushed beyond what I think I can do and overcoming self doubt. I have definitely noticed more definition in my arms and confidence to do more difficult yoga poses. Most importantly, I've learned to be content with my best. Expecting more from myself and negative self talk only ruins the gift and privilege of exercise. Exercise has never been more fun or addictive. So glad I found Tone." -Rachel
Kim has become a regular at TONE F1TNESS and has seen stellar results. She has participated in Bootcamp, Ride, and Yoga. Kim has had extremely high anxiety and has now been able to sleep better at night as a result of her new fitness program. Kim says, "I feel strong, confident and a part of something " since joining the Tone community. Congratulations on your amazing progress Kim, we are all so proud of you!
"When I first walked through the door of Tone F1tness almost 9 months ago I had one single goal, take a little break from my fairly recent "full time mom" gig and spend some time among people that are taller than 3 feet. Since that first day Tone F1tness has improved my life in so many ways it is hard to list them all. Some results I noticed right away during the first week of attending classes. On the days when I was able to sneak in a yoga class I was calmer, more centered and more energized. I was more patient with my kids and when an evening came I was still going strong, sometimes even with a smile on my face (to my husband's surprise). With time I noticed other side effects of this newly found passion. My whole body has been getting stronger, leaner and healthier. I stay energized even with very little sleep on some days. I have been craving movement and I have been spending more time actively playing with my kids. My kids ask me every day if we can go to yoga. They love the child care at Tone and all the care givers.
Tone F1tness is a unique business that doesn't feel like a business at all. It feels more like a community center, a really nice, modern , incredibly well equipped and clean community center that smells good too. The schedule always evolves to keep everyone engaged and meet everyone's needs. I have tried an array of yoga based classes and various instructors and love them all. Each teacher is different but so passionate and each class is never the same. My favorite part of each class is trying arm balancing poses. They are really challenging but very fun and rewarding when you finally get them.
If I had to choose one thing or place that had made a positive difference in my life in the last year it would be joining Tone F1tness. I sure hope that they will be around a long time because one of the criteria we had in buying our new home was to be in vicinity to this place!" -Monika
"I took my first class at Tone about 9 months ago and was instantly hooked. I had just moved back home from college and was determined to find a place where I could lose all the weight I had gained throughout those 4 years, and I am so glad I found Tone F1tness. The first class I took was R1DE with Jodie. I had never taken any kind of cycle class with a weights section before and the only thing I kept thinking was 'who knew 4 pounds could feel so heavy?' I also take Bootcamp, Tr1tonal, and more recently various Yoga classes. My favorite part about each class is that the workouts are always different. Each instructor has their own style of a total body workout and you never truly know what to expect. The only thing that you can expect is that each class will be challenging and you will push yourself to your limits. Also, you will feel AMAZING afterwards every time! Beyond the classes and the studio, the people at Tone is what keeps me coming back. The Tone community is so positive and motivating I look forward to coming in every time. I have lost a total of 17 pounds since joining and can't wait to see the progress still to come!" -Krishna
"This is why I fell in love with TONEF1TNESS. Nothing about their studio or philosophy is very traditional. Their set up is very different than most studios and there seemed to be 'something for everyone.' Anyone could come here and feel like they belonged."
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this incredible blog about our facility! Your words are spot on for what we had hoped to create when Tone was established. Everyone does belong, and we're here to provide health and wellness without any judgement. Tone is for everybody and every body.
