    It burns loads of calories but doesn't really tone your body. Try using this in circuit training combined with sit ups, press ups, squats, dorsal raises etc.

    'Toning' is just losing fat so your muscles below are more visible, so it helps.

    Great form of exercise but try doing it on a mat/something with a bit of spring to prevent damaging your joints.

    Isnt toning more to do with involuntary muscle contractions, he just needs to improve his bodyfat ratio.

    In that meaning, toning as a word doesn't exist, just muscle tone or tonus.

    Im sure by continuous training aimed directly at increasing muscle tone you could probably be "toning".
