I have done a variety of things. Currently, I run, strength train, spinning and some cardio. I do machines and I also have some boot camp style and interval workouts I do at home. Oh, and yoga.
In the past when my schedule allowed I did a fabulous boot camp. I miss that class! It's still going; I just can't make it as I work a different job that gets too late. I have tried Zumba but I didn't care for it. I also did some drop in classes at my gym but am taking a break from them.

A lot of Spark videos here. I still use Nicole's Jump Rope to do HIIT. A lot of videos by Jillian Micheal's; 30 Day Shred, Ripped in 30, Killer Buns and Thighs, Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism. I did a few Denise Austin aerobic videos on youtube. ;)
I stick to my 2 favourites for cardio right now that I've done for nearly a year. Creature of habit I guess and that's Jump rope w/Coach Nicole (although I make modifications to make it more advanced) and BFBM with JM (again, I modify it to make it more advanced). BFBM is circuits of kickboxing, high knees, butt kicks, jumping jacks, cross country skiing, mountain climbers, skaters, etc. I can't stick to repetitive cardio, I find it gets boring. I like circuits and these are high intensity moves that really get the heart rate up.
"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.
