The reference to muscles becoming toned just means that the amount of fat covering the muscles will be reduced. Yes muscles can only shrink or grow. They can be large and toned or small and toned. Either way the word toned usually is a reference to low body fat.

"her muscles will soon appear smaller as they become leaner and more toned" ? Isn't fat just covering her muscle? I thought muscle could only become larger or smaller. Can you provide any reasearch to validate muscles becoming more toned?
