Personally, if I had a gym membership I would do cardio at home and strength training on the days I could make it to the gym. Cardio doesn't really require equipment but strength training does.
You can look for various cardio videos online like here at Spark or on youtube. You can rent them from your local library or buy them. There's also walking, jogging, running, swimming, cycling, jump rope, etc.
For beginner strength training I would stick to the basics, compound exercises to get the most bang for my buck in the shortest amount of time; deadlifts, squats, lunges, bridges, pull ups, rows, pushups, bench press, overhead press, planks and crunches/sit ups. 6-8 exercises is all that you need.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
