Beautifully sculpted thighs are a dream for most people; however, it usually takes copious amounts of exercise and proper nutrition. Thigh toners will revolutionise your training as they help you to specifically target the thigh area and in combination with your usual diet and exercise, help you to achieve results in this area more quickly. No gym? No problem! Thigh toners can be used at home and are portable, so you can take yours wherever you go.
What are thigh toners?
Thigh toners are a handy piece of equipment that both strengthen and tone your inner and outer thighs, giving you that beautiful definition. Many thigh toners also provide strengthening to your upper body also and require core stability, so essentially, you benefit from a full-body workout when using one.
Do thigh toners work?
Many studies have proven that you can’t just target one area alone and expect results. Instead, for the best results, you need to combine using a thigh toner with other exercise and a nutritious diet. Thigh toners are great for strengthening, but in order to lose fat, you have to lose it everywhere before you begin to see results. When used in combination with exercise and a good diet, thigh toners can help produce results in as little as a few weeks! We’ve listed a number of tight toning equipment available for purchase via Amazon. Note that if you purchase, we may get a little commission for the recommendation! Here is our list:

This is a great toning tool! We love how inexpensive it is, but it works so many muscles within your body, talk about value for money! It is very easy to use, but the instruction booklet does guide you on how to get the best use from it. It is very comfortable to use and feels sturdy and durable.

When performing strength training, these bands provide greater stability to your muscles.
Aids in tissue repair, reduction in excess water and improves metabolism

These bands are wonderful for helping provide stability to your muscles as you exercise. We like that they do not slip or move around, even when performing a range of exercises like HIIT and running. They are comfortable due to the latex-free neoprene material from which they are made. You really notice how much more you sweat while you are wearing them, so it’s important to ensure you stay hydrated!

Train your abs, arms and thighs with this muscle stimulator. Including the main ab pads and a pair of smaller belts, you can alternate between using them on your arms and legs. Featuring electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) technology, your muscles are stimulated by small electrodes that cause your muscles to contract. With just two months of regular use, you can see results in as little as two months.
These muscle stimulator belts are very easy to use, with simple push button operation. It fits comfortably to your body, so you can wear it while relaxing around the house or while exercising. Compared to other EMS belts available on the market, this one is value for money, but does lack in programmes and intensities that other, more expensive belts offer; with that being said, it works very well. It does actually include batteries which is a plus, so you can get to using it right away.
Pro: excellent value for money
Pro: comfortable to wear
Pro: uses EMS technology to target your abs, arms and thighs
By using electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) technology, these pads use small electrical currents called electrodes to interact with the nerves in your muscles, making them contract; this contraction of muscle typically occurs during exercise, but these pads stimulate exercise allowing for strengthening and toning of your legs. This exerciser contains 8 massaging balls which helps relieve soreness but promotes tightening and lifting of the thigh. They can also be used on the arms.
We love that this exerciser not only helps develop your muscles, but also massages them at the same time, making it great for use as a part of your cool-down routine while exercising. You have got 10 different sport modes to choose from, all of which stimulate your muscles as if you were actually doing that sport – but can be done as you lounge and watch TV! The only downside is that they are a bit small, so if you have very bulky arms or thighs, it may not fit comfortably.
Pro: strengthen and massage your leg/arm muscles
Pro: 10 sport modes
Pro: uses EMS technology
Con: would not fit someone with larger arms/legs comfortable
Con: high-cost when compared with other toners
5. Leezo Pelvic Floor Muscle Medial Trainer
Firm and tighten your thighs, glutes and lower abdominal muscles with this trainer. Not only does it aid in muscle toning, but it also reduces issues with incontinency and improves intimacy due to the strengthening of your pelvic floor muscles.
We would definitely recommend this to people who have weak pelvic floor muscles, male or female. It is very easy to use and in as little as four weeks you can begin to see and feel results, but requires use daily. The elastic can be adjusted to increase the intensity as you improve. Great value for money!

Pro: strengthens pelvic floor muscles
Con: it is unisex, but has a feminine look to it
6. Squat Magic by New Image
Squats are the key to a peachy and defined derriere and thighs; this exercise machine helps you master this move at low impact while working 5 muscle groups – your glutes, quads, hamstrings, calves and core. By using squat assistive technology, this tool helps guide you as you squat and lift, ensuring that the move is performed correctly to get results.
A gym can be an overwhelming place for some people, but this exerciser is a great addition if you want to work out from the comfort of your home. While it is quite pricey, it does include quite a few additions so that you get the most out of using it. There are three levels of assistance, making it perfect for people of all fitness levels.

Resistance bands are great multi-functional tools that help you stretch, strengthen and tone your glutes and thighs. With three levels of resistance, you can gradually build up your strength and improve your fitness. While squats, donkey kicks, lunges, scissor kicks, etc are all superb strength exercises, they can be boosted by using these resistance bands.
We highly recommend these resistance bands, unlike other bands that roll down as you use them, these stay in place and feel extremely durable. You can really feel the activation of your muscles when using them, further increasing the benefits of the exercise that you are doing.
Con: while the pastel colours are beautiful, they have a feminine look to them
10. REEHUT Ankle Weight
While advertised as an ankle weight, these also function as wrist weights, making them dual-functioning. Boost your workouts with added weight, without the weight being in the way of performing certain exercise.
A pair of ankle weights can really improve any workout that you do! We used these while running, rowing, and strength exercises and noticed the difference it made in improving performance. They offer a range of choice in weight (at various prices), so you can find the weight that is best suited to your fitness level. They are comfortable to wear, but are quite long so could not be worn under clothing. There is a ring through which you can thread the velcro, tightening it as much as necessary so that it fits comfortably without slipping.
Pro: high quality material
Pro: velcro straps allow for anti-slip during use
Pro: can be worn while performing a range of exercises
Con: as you progress you would need to up your weight, which requires buying a new set
