It's not that I need to lose weight, just need to get toned and fit. Any suggestions? Is 3-5 days enough? Please and thanks!

Yes 3-5 days are enough if you don't want to lose weight

I would try for 5-6 days a week. Always take a day to rest.

3 to 5 days are enough. I workout 6 days a week. I'm like you, don't need to lose weight. I do more weights than cardio. I do some cardio for the heart healthy benefits. To really tone up you should do 5-6 days a week. Remember, muscle weighs more so you might actually weigh a little more when you step on the scale.

Makes sense. I really need to tone my thighs. Any suggestions on that?

Squats, lunges, sumo squats, wall sits, several different moves. Check out my profile and go through some of my workouts. Make sure you work on your core, too.

I workout in the morning and afternoon. I do about an hour to an hour and a half a day. It's just learning what works for your body.

It depends on how long you workout usually 1hr is good 3-4 times a week if its 30 then 5-6 a week. Everything work differently to others! I'm so busy so I do 1hr 3-4 times a week I try to do one more day but sometimes I'm too busy
