I'm confused as to what you are looking for?
you could always suggest reading up at exrx.net
the best cardio i know of for dropping pounds is interval training. after doing a warm up, run at 75% of your max for 5 minutes then slow down to a fast walk for 2 minutes rest. then do 80% of max for 5 minutes then fast walk for 2 minutes rest. then do 85% for 5 minutes with a 2 minute fast walk....and so on until you do 5 minutes at your top speed and make sure to do a full cool down by walking until your heart rate comes back down. (this can be done running on a track, outside, treadmill, on bike oustide, stationary bike, eliptical machine etc.). if 5 minutes is too long at first then only do 3 minutes with a 1 minute fast walk rest.
as for toning up the muscles....light weights with 12-15 reps just so that by the last rep she can feel the burn by isn't at failure.
