An Honest Studio Tone It Up Review

Tone It Up recently released their new app, Studio Tone It Up. This week also concludes the #TIU21 challenge which utilizes daily workouts within the app. I’ve been participating in the challenge and testing out the app for a few weeks, so I thought it was time for a review.

As a self-proclaimed “Tone It Up Girl” I knew I had to try out the app, or at least take advantage of the free trial period. That said, it was very important to me to approach the app from an objective point of view and not get caught up in “drinking the Kool-Aid”. I love and admire Karena and Katrina, but I don’t take their word as gospel. I like to do my own research and testing, and make my own decisions! That’s how this honest Studio Tone It Up review came to fruition.

Tabata Inspired Interval Workout

When it comes to quick and effective workouts, intervals are the way to go! When I’m not training for a half marathon, I incorporate interval workouts into my routine much more frequently. To be honest, I’m looking forward to the end of my current training cycle so I can incorporate workouts like this much more often.

I’ve sung the praises for intervals many times because there are so many things you can do with them! This workout will have you sweating from head to toe while also hitting all your major muscles! It’s “Tabata Inspired” in that it doesn’t follow the Tabata protocol exactly. But it’s fun none the less and will get the job done under 30 minutes.
