After about 6 - 8 weeks you should feel better and if your using weights to tone you shoud start seeing a difference after approx 3 months.

If you are overweight it is hard to see the difference as the toned muscle will be under a layer of fat.
with a combination of diet and excercise i have gone from a size 18 to a 12 on my bottom half since christmas.
the more weight I lost the more noticable my muscles were.

Interval training works well. You need to warm up, then do a blast of cardio on the cross trainer, then some toning work with the sit ups, then cardio, then toning and so on, then cool down at the end.

I go to a outdoor boot camp which works on this method and it really does work.

You also need to look at your diet and eat healthy food rather than junk food. No specific diet needed - just the advice we all know we need to follow with more fresh food and less processed crap.

Blimey! Prob works on the principle that you can't afford to buy food and eat if you go on the bootcamp, instant weightloss :shocked:

Found another one that does a day for ?60 in the Borders, a bit better. Might look further into that.
You get all your meals included in the week one but up at 5.45 and don't stop until 10pm :eek:

I've seen various bootcamp deals on groupon, worth a look.

There is a boot camp near us but its just excercise for an hour on the moor - you can go once, twice of three times a week.

Looks like they get good results too
