"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

An easy fat-free buttermilk substitute is to put 1 tablespoon of either lemon juice or vinegar in a 1 cup measure, fill to one cup with skim milk. Let stand for 5 minutes.
The mixture with lemon juice tends to be nicer in sweet baked recipes.
I always have these things available so it's my go-to substitute.
Mix nonfat yogurt with nonfat milk till it's the consistency of buttermilk. It works. In recipes with baking powder, you need the acidity of the buttermilk to make the baking powder work -- so then add a small amount of lemon juice.

Soy milk or unsweetened applesauce can replace the liquid in any muffin recipe

hmm, well, lowfat buttermilk has about 2 gr. of fat in a cup; that's fewer calories and less fat than 2% (reduced fat) milk. (li think lowfat buttermilk is typically available in supermarkets).
if you want less fat than that, i was going to suggest adding about a tsp. of lemon juice or vinegar to skim milk, but I think non-fat yogurt might be a better option.
since you mentioned lower-fat, another possibility would be to replace some or all of the butter / oil / fat ingredient with applesauce.
