Try these Tony Horton workouts and programs to achieve your goals with the help of a world-class trainer.
As a celebrity trainer and creator of the massively successful P90X series, Tony Horton is one of the biggest names in the fitness industry. He brings his decades of experience to Tonal with exclusive programs and workouts designed to help you achieve your biggest goals.
Besides his impressive resume, Horton is famous for his warm and encouraging style. With his signature jokes, he manages to make even the toughest workout feel fun as he invites you to see the bigger role fitness plays in your life.
“Find a reason that is really about your quality of life, about bringing energy and enthusiasm to other aspects of your life, about being able to go on long mountain bike rides, or on ski trips with your family,” Horton said in an interview with Tonal. “Look at working out on Tonal as a way of opening up other opportunities that will make your life more interesting and help you create your story.”
Whether you’re looking to build muscle, lose fat, or improve your athleticism, there’s a Tony Horton workout or program on Tonal that’ll get you there. Here are all the different ways to work out with Horton on Tonal from the comfort of home.
Tony Horton Workout Programs on Tonal
Horton’s multi-week programs are consistently ranked as some of the most popular among Tonal members. Like all programs on Tonal, they follow the principle of progressive overload in which you gradually introduce new stress on the body to drive adaptations, such as building strength or burning fat. Combine those benefits with Horton’s signature wit and motivational style, and it’s not surprising that these are member favorites.
With five 20-minute workouts per week for four weeks, this program is designed to get your muscles burning while fitting into your busy schedule. Each week consists of one lower-body workout and four upper-body sessions.
All 20 workouts in the program are unique, so you’ll never get bored. As the weeks go on, the intensity increases with more reps and more challenging movement variations. It’s a highly efficient strategy for transforming your body without a major time commitment.

20-in-20: Pump Up the Volume
Structured similarly to 20-in-20: Ignite, this program includes 20 action-packed 20-minute workouts meant to be completed over the course of four weeks. Each workout targets a specific muscle group—arms, chest, legs, back, or shoulders—giving each body part plenty of time to recover between sessions.
During the course of the program, rep counts will increase as you accumulate more and more muscle-building volume. “Higher rep counts mean more time under tension, so that’s a longer timeframe in which you can build muscle without having to add a whole bunch of extra weight or resistance,” Horton said.

20-in-20: Shred and Sweat
The third installment in Horton’s 20-in-20 series, Shred and Sweat follows the same format as the previous two programs but with a new emphasis on raising your heart rate to fire up your metabolism and burn fat.
Shred and Sweat includes four full-body workouts and one core-cardio session per week. Full-body workouts are more metabolically demanding, so don’t be surprised if these sessions leave you sweaty and breathless. Shred and Sweat follows the principles of push-pull training, splitting up muscle groups by pushing and pulling motions on strength days so you’ll still have time to recover in between.

3×3: Light the Fire
Horton’s first Tonal program designed for beginners, 3×3: Light the Fire is a three-week program with three full-body workouts per week. Ascending rep schemes for every exercise keep the focus on muscular endurance and metabolic work.
Whether you’re new to strength training or coming back after a break, you’ll appreciate Horton’s dedication to coaching proper form and offering modifications for different exercises. Horton introduces new progressions and movement variations each week to keep challenging you as you level up.
Triple Threat: Dynamic Gains
In his latest program on Tonal, Horton shifts the focus to building major muscle. Each workout in this four-week program (with three workouts per week) has a unique training goal, emphasizing either strength, hypetrophy, or stamina. You’ll use Eccentric and Chains modes in different exercises to accelerate strength and power gains.
There’s plenty of variety to keep you on your toes, including a mix of rep ranges and different movement patterns to challenge your muscles in new ways. By changing up the muscle groups you target each week, you’ll hit all your major muscles while keeping the workouts stimulating.
