I'm asking because a lot of people waste money on gym memberships when they're not needed.
If you want to get fitter then there is no better exercise than running. Also, you can't add tone. Toning is related to body fat percentage, which running will also help with.
If you're referring to tone in the muscular sense then incorporate compound exercises into your training with running.
Compound exercises are squats, deadlifts, press (in any variation). They work your central nervous system, which in turn works every muscle group available.
