I have been going to Tone-Up classes for almost 30 years now and I love it!!! Not only is it an excellent fitness program targeted at women and women's specific needs but it is fun. I started right after my first daughter was born and continued to work out with Suesan all the way through my second pregnancy. I can honestly say that doing that not only made my delivery much easier but I bounced back much quicker. Tone-Up has kept me physically strong, lean, flexible and balanced. The women I have met through Tone- Up have become life long friends too. You can't say that about many gyms.

As a charter member, I have been doing Tone-Up for over 21 years. Most of the classes are taught by owner Suesan Pawlitski. Her women's fitness program is the best work out I have ever done and I especially enjoy the group fitness classes. Classes start with a ballet based barre warm up and offer strength and weight training for a total body workout.

An added bonus....I've met some wonderful women that have become lifelong friends.

I’m in my 12th year at ToneUp. I was working out at another "gym" in Santa Barbara 5 days a week for about 2 hours each session. I kept hearing about ToneUp Santa Barbara and finally I tried it. After that first workout, I heard from muscles I didn't even know I had!

I like the intimate women-only environment. It allows each woman to achieve her goals. As weird as it sounds, Tone-Up has changed my life. I'm fitter, more confident and I'm working out with some of the most amazing women I've ever met. And, I'm lucky to count some of them as close friends.

I've been to all types of work-outs and I can say this is the best! The variety of exercise, which changes constantly, is the most invigorating I've had and I notice the difference! Body by Tone-Up!

Best fitness program in Santa Barbara!! I have been going to Tone-up for 12 years and I still love it and look forward to the great whole body workout and the fun atmosphere. I have gone to various gyms and fitness courses in Santa Barbara for my entire adult life and there is nothing to compare with Suesan's classes....and my body agrees! I would highly recommend Tone-up Santa Barbara to anyone!


22 years at Tone-Up. No one can last that long at any gym, no matter how friendly the atmosphere is, no matter how congenial the members, no matter how reasonable the rates, no matter how motivated one can be, UNLESS it works!

And... it does...

I started almost by accident, as I was looking for some type of aerobic exercise, back in 1994.... But then, after a few classes and some soreness, I knew I had stumbled upon something good; really good. I could have stopped after a year or so, after all her program worked and I (and others) could tell I looked great, right? Anyone who comes and watches us in group fitness class wonders at how good we all look!

But then, I had also learned that whatever I was doing at Tone Up was GOOD FOR ME... It was not just a matter of looking good, it was a matter of feeling better and stronger... and I never could give that up :)

The program creator, Suesan Pawlitski, makes the workout very enjoyable, with a variety of exercises that address all levels of fitness. Seventeen years, and I haven't tired of it! Thanks to Suesan. She has managed to keep me motivated over the years, so that I could reach my optimal level of fitness and wellbeing.

No other gym has ever done that for me.

My best investment ever.

I started ToneUp when I was in my late 50s. I had never exercised before. I found that even that my age (now 72) I am stronger with more energy than women who are much younger than I am.

ToneUp changed everything for me! Life is Good

I began the Tone-Up circuit training 14 years ago at age 49. Suesan keeps it fresh, adjusts my workouts for my body's needs, and keeps the classes small. Better than a one-on-one training: I work out with a small group of women who I respect and enjoy seeing each week

--Elaine L.

I have never enjoyed working out until I began working out with Suesan over 15 years ago. Not only do I feel stronger and in better shape at 49 than ever, it is fun. It is an appointment that I keep at least twice a week. It is also nice to be in the company of some really great ladies!!!!

Hi Suesan, My husband just told me my body looks great... very toned! I couldn't do it without you!!! Thank you ...........

Tone up is my favorite place to start my day !!! I have been working out most of my life. I was getting bored with my own personal workout of 25 + years. Since starting with Suesan at Tone Up I am so happy with my new muscle tone, and energy. I love her insight and direction throughout my hour long workout. Suesan works with you individually in getting to know you and your body. A wonderful age range of women with all sorts going on with our ever changing bodies. Great tunes, Great new friends, excellent personal instruction, and a beautiful studio. I recommend Tone up to anyone looking for a wonderful women's gym with a great vibe and great results after only a few months.
