This Valentine’s Day, we feel very lucky to be surrounded by love with Brian and Bobby, our families, each other, and this community. You show us love every day with your checkins, smiles, and dedication to this team. So today, we want to shower you with L-O-V-E!

Just for you we have healthy chocolate muffins, a bubbly and sweet cocktail, and a special Galentine’s gift: 25% off the entire site with the code 25GALENTINE starting at 10 am PST for 24 hours. We also filmed a little video for ya. Our gals at the HQ suggested we answer questions about love, our guys, and each other, and we thought it was the perfect way to celebrate this day.

So we’re pouring our hearts out about our first dates, kisses, and “I love with yous” with Brian and Bobby, our first impressions of each other, our most memorable friend dates and vacations, and what love and friendship mean to us. While filming this, we laughed, and we cried, and we share so much! ❤️️ Valentine’s Day is also a day to recognize the amazing friendships in your life! Tell the women in your life that you love them…a lot! xx

  1. OMG I nearly cried at the end of the Video… Everything you said was so loving and nice! ♥ Congrats to you Girls for having each other!!

  2. The video made me cry! It was beautiful! I must admit, this is the first video I have watched for TIU and know why I feel in love with you girls! I wish I could meet you both in person, you are both such an inspiration to me! I have health issues, but I feel like I can overcome anything after watching your video!! Thank you for all you do! 🐾🐾🌹🌹🌻🌻

  3. To be quite honest, I took a bit of a hiatus from TIU with everything else I’ve had going on, but I just happened to sit down and watch this video this morning. It completely made my day, and was exactly what I needed! (Even with a few tears) Thank you for all that you do and everything you’ve created for this community. You ladies are incredible!!

  4. This is so beautiful.
    Everything you said felt so right from the heart.
    Thank You!!! <3

  5. OMG this was the sweetest! Thank you for sharing so much! You are both so beautiful and your stories and souls are powerful! I loved the part about the birthdays/signs (I’m a scorpio and my hubby is an Aries, and it just makes so much sense now lol). Happy day, ladies!

  6. Wow that made me cry! I’ve been with TIU since the early days and to see how far you’ve come and what you two accomplished is so inspiring! I’m grateful to have found tone it up, it’s made me a better person, thank you!

  7. This video just made my day & left my heart feeling so full! The two of you are such an inspiration & the bond you have is truly incredible! You have both come so far & it’s amazing what you’ve built together. Thank you so much for everything you do for this community & for always staying the kind hearted, bubbly & genuine women that you are!! 💜

  8. Absolutely loved your video! I love you girls and seeing your friendship. It reminds me of my own friendship with my bestie of 41 amazing years! Met in first grade and are like sisters! I LOVE her, TIU and K&K! Thank you for sharing from the heart. You both make TIU so special!

  9. All the feels! 😭 Love you girls so much! You’re such an inspiration and I can only hope to have a friendship as close as yours one day! 💕 Ps. How old were you guys when you met each other?

  10. This was so sweet! I loved the pictures at the end. You are both so lucky to have found each other.

  11. 😭Oh my goodness girls this was so touching I was crying. You’re so lucky to have each other and it’s a wonderful thing to feel a part of your friendship!

  12. Beautiful video by beautiful ladies inside and out. Your friendship is the real deal and it really shows!

  13. This video made me cry! I loved it so much and love how you guys celebrate and care for each other. My bestie and I joined this program because we have that same relationship. It is everything!!! Thank you guys for who you are and what you do for this community, how you inspire us and encourage us each day, and for letting us peek into your every day lives. We love you!

  14. This video <3

    You girls bring such joy to my heart. I'm in a season where I've been without a best girl friend for a few years now. It has just been so refreshing to be a part of the team and part of the community where friendship is key. Thank you for letting me join your journey of life and friendship. Happiest of Valentine's Day to you ladies. :)

  15. Oh my goodness! Cue the tears!! This is the SWEETEST video EVER!! Love everything about this. Happy Galentines girls!

  16. You ladies are such an inspiration to this whole community. Thank you for all that you do for us!! We love you so much and to be able to share your journey and your love for life and each other with all of us is truly incredible. xoxo

    p.s. Off to the ladies room to make sure I don’t have raccoon eyes!! :)

  17. Loved this video and I shed a few tears! Happy Valentines day to you both and the community!

  18. I love this vlog. It made cry from all of the love. I hope someday I will be able to have such a strong and loving friendship similar to the one you two share.

  19. omg girls THANK YOU for this! You both are so amazing and loving and holy tears! I got all teary when hearing your loving, sweet words about each other. Plus your guys are pretty awesome too. xoxo <3

    1. My friends are my chosen family. I’ve moved around so much and haven’t lived near family since I was 25 that i’ve created my family everywhere. Love is everything. Everything. And it should be given to everyone. I know that sounds naive however kindness and compassion are elements of love which everyone deserves..from a friend, sister to a stranger at the grocery store to the homeless person on the street. Everyone.

  20. Omg – seriously pools formed on my face after that! Thank you so much for sharing it, spreading the love and reminding us what’s truly important and possible in life! You chica as are so inspiring – lots of love back to you! ✨💕

  21. I am inspired by both of you every day. I have been having a rough time lately, and you have reminded me to literally look for the love in my life – and I have found plenty of it. 10 places of love in no particular order: I have a girlfriend I can call at 3 am if I need to, I have a best guy friend I can call as he is usually in a different time zone, I have an amazing sister in law who has inspired me to stay healthy, I have parents who are truly in love with each other after 50 years of marriage and assure me that a love like that is possible, I have 3 amazing, strong, funny, healthy children who make me laugh and cry, I have a girlfriend who is that listening ear, and that whacky “let’s do it” friend and she insisted I try yoga, she helped me move when I needed (and offers up her hubby for repairs around the house!), I have 3 brothers who are my anchors in stormy weather, and who keep me grounded…whoops – that’s more than 10, but I am so grateful for all these people. Thank you TIU – I am sending you big love this Valentine’s Day!

  22. I loved watching this video and it brought tears to my eyes to hear your love for each other and life and family pour out. Thank you for sharing!

  23. This was so sweet and inspiring. I can only imagine how emotional it was for y’all, K+K, to see the final product. Love love love!!

  24. Oh my gosh!! This video brought tears to my eyes. You two have such a beautiful friendship, and such an inspiring one at that. I hope to one day have a friendship like yours <3

  25. You ladies are the best! Seriously so inspiring from your growth in your business, to your pure friendship and approach to life! The fact that you can bring together a whole community of women and inspire them to be their best selves and aim to have that same zest for life shows the power that you two have together!!

  26. Gesh!!!! Teared up multiple times!!! I would rather have a couple amazing friends then a million that don’t care… What an inspiring video :D

  27. I love your video and I enjoyed it very much. You both are such a great ladies who are the best friend. Love you K & K! Happy Valentines Day!

  28. This was such a fun, sweet tribute to each other and to your respective hubbies. Your individual journeys are inspiring but together you’re both unstoppable. Your passion and hard work enhance the lives of so many women throughout the world and we’re all so blessed to have your influence. Please never stop. I love you ladies ❤

  29. This wideo was so nice, sweet, touching, full of emotion and friendship. I envy you very much. I would also like to experience such frienfship what you have. I love you so much guys. And I thank that I found both of you. #tiulove #TIUteam

  30. I loved this so much…I have a best friend that’s like this for me too..and I can relate that she knows me a little differently than my hubby, but in some ways they know me the same. I’m thankful I have her and my hubby in my life, but I’m also thankful that I found you gals too! It has helped me so much when I was so sick and needed easy quick meals that I could make and get my nutrition. Now I am pretty healthy and working out 2 times a day with your workouts and gaining muscle, losing weight, and gaining strength. My life was forever changed when I found you gals in 2014! Thank you for all that you do, excited for the next challenge and for the results I get at the end of the #7dsd. #tiuteam #tiulove

  31. This video was so moving, and I love getting to see y’all be so open with this community! Keep moments like these coming!

  32. Happy Galentines, Katrina and Karena!
    Thanks for this fun and touching video. I just love you two! LIttle did I know when I stumbled upon one of your beach workouts on YouTube several years ago that I was entering so much more than a workout. You have brought a dimension of joy I never expected to find. Thanks to you and your sweet husbands and families for sharing so much of yourselves. Thank you for starting a community where I have had the privilege of meeting either in person or in social media so many remarkable, strong, loving women who have enriched my life and inspire me everyday.
    Much love,
    xxoo
    Lisa

  33. I CRIED. I know the love you two have for each other is so real. Everything you said about each other, I think about my closest friends. Love love love you BOTH. Thank you for being such lights in the dark for so many women 💕

  34. After being a Tone It Up member for almost 5 years I’ve watched you two go through so much together, I found this video so moving! You two are so insanely inspiring, funny, super cute, sweet & real. What an incredible friendship. Thank you for sharing this & I’m so lucky to be a part of this team!

  35. Just Love !!! Beautiful 🌸😭😘❤️
    Thanks K&K for everything.

  36. My heart is so full after watching this! ❤ Your friendship is a true inspiration! Even had a few little tears towards the end! Thank you k&k!

  37. Love you K&K! This kind of friendship is so rare! I don’t think I’ve ever had this kind of friendship…hopefully some day! Your strong relationship is a big part of what makes TIU so special!

  38. This was amazing. Thank you so much for sharing it and your lives and your love for everything with us. I love K&K and I am so grateful to the both of you. You are my inspiration!!!!

  39. This was too cute & made me tear up more than once!! Thank you for continuing to put yourself out there & build this beautiful community. PS Karena–dirty titos martini with blue cheese stuffed olives ❤️❤️😍😍 my fave!

  40. This made my day! Your infectious laughs, and beaming smiles…thank you!!! I plan on getting more involved in this community…and the caring that just echoed through my screen just made me decide to commit even more!

  41. Don’t mind me, while I BAWL my eyes out!
    You girls are so amazing….it is your friendship, amazing energy, and huge LOVE that makes Tone It Up and this community the best thing that happens to any girl that decides to embark on this journey.
    I hope to meet you on day to express this in person, you girls saved my life in more ways than one.

  42. That was so much fun to watch! I was definitely sitting in my office crying! How genuine your friendship is makes TIU so amazing. Thank you!

  43. Thank you so much for sharing! This video was incredibly sweet & exactly what I needed today (happy tears included). Your bond is so strong. Having a friendship like yours is priceless & so difficult to find. Absolutely loved learning more about you both! Katrina – you & my husband share the same birthday! Karena – your inner beauty shines so bright! I love you both even more now & am so very grateful for all that you do, your daily inspiration, and the community of amazing women you have both created. Your fun workouts and making friends within this awesome community has brought me so much joy. I truly hope to meet you soon and give you both a huge hug in person!
    Hugs,much love, and prayers for your continued success,
    Lynnet

  44. Such a beautiful testimony of Love. Thank you for sharing with us.
    Through TIU I started to find my place in the world and in particular in the US. It’s so hard to move/relocate when you don’t have a friend, then life happens … but I had already started to became a stronger person. It’s hard to say thank you to the two of you, when we have never really met (just a quick hello at a retreat), nevertheless THANK YOU for the love and strength that the two of you inspire in all of us. t

  45. This was so special and beautiful. You can truly feel the love. You both are such incredible individuals with amazing souls. Friendships like these are so valuable. It reminds me of me and my best friend, Amanda. She is the Karena to my Katrina 100%!!! I really don’t know where I would be in my life if it wasn’t for her. She is my soul sister, my ride or die. Growing up together and being there for one another through all the ups and downs we each had in our lives these past 10 years. Even now as we both become more and more busy, we still are always there for each other. Supporting one another in all the changes in life. I am so thankful to have her as my best friend and I love her so much.
    Thank you for putting this together. It was wonderful. XO

  46. YOU GIRLS!! Ahh this had me so teary eyed! You girls just radiate so much love, it’s so contagious. Y’all are definitely Bestie Goals! I’ve never had a good girl friend until about a year and a half ago and our relationship reminds me so much of y’alls. I have a hard time with friends in general, especially with girls, and I’ve always looked up to your relationship together. This past year and a half reminded me how important good girl friends are in my life. <3 I can't thank you enough for how much you girls inspired me – exercise, nutrition, and relationship-wise – since 2012. LOVE YOU GIRLS! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful video! 😍😘

  47. Our favorite quote from “How I Met Your Mother” and our wedding sums up love for me every day!
    “Love is the best thing we do!”

  48. I was smiling all through the video, except at the end when Kat made me cry :-) You guys are such an inspiration!!
    Thank you for toneitup. It has been the answer that so many of us gals have been searching for. May your lives always be full of love and laughter!

  49. I have been meaning to watch this video since the day I saw you girls posted it and I’m so happy I found the time to watch it! You girls are such inspirations in so many ways – to each other and to every TIU girl out there. Your friendship and love for one another is so sweet! I was crying tears of happiness for the both of you and love that you are living out your dreams without each other. Thank you for sharing your love & happiness with us and for inspiring me everyday! xo

  50. OMG, Katrina totally made me cry like 3 times watching this!! Such a a beautiful video, and you both are so lucky to have each other. I’m in my mid 30s and I’ve yet to find a best girlfriend like that. Cherish it forever 💕 Love you girls @karenakatrina

  51. This video made me cry, lots of happy tears! Your friendship with each other truly shines bright whether that be through your workouts I do, your fun travel destinations I get to see, your hilarious goofy videos and snap chats that make me laugh and so much more! You both are truly inspiring not only in the health and fitness world, but with your solid, everlasting lifetime relationships you have with others :) xoxo

  52. Omg I got so emotional watching this. I’m not active on social media but I have followed you guys since the beginning, before the bravo tv series. I remember watching Karena and Bobbys date (with Karena wearing her infamous space dress for Bobby😍 Haha) and now to be married and just to see what you both have built for your lives just makes me so happy and it is so inspiring. Kat I started crying when I saw your post about yoga teacher training. It is something I’ve always wanted to do but have never had the courage. To see you be vulnerable and scared and commit to it inspires me even more. Tone it up is so much more than health and fitness for me – your friendship is goals and I love you girls! Thank you for being such amazing, uplifting, compassionate and loving women and friends! If I could have dinner with anyone in the world it would be you two:)

  53. Simply amazing-made my heart sing and helped me with applying perspective in my life- awesome ladies as always 😀

  54. Just watched this video… You girls made me smile and made me cry the whole time I was watching it. We recently moved to another country and I don’t really have friends here, especially a best girlfriend. I never thought I’ll be needing one so much but I do now. You two are such an inspiration for me! Waking up every day, I’m always in a great mood because I get to spend time working out with you two(virtually, but it counts😁😉). Thank you for everything that you do! And I hope one day I’ll get to meet you two in person! Tons of ❤❤❤!! Anna
