Toning = long, lean muscles (i.e. bodyweight exercises or low resistance, high volume training, yoga, pilates)

Conditioning = improved cardiovascular capacity (i.e. sprinting, battle ropes, skipping, high intensity interval training)

Strength = increase in muscle strength and size (i.e. hypertrophy training, bodybuilding, max effort lifts, powerlifting)

Hope that helps!!
