Tonal is the first-ever adaptive digital strength training system, powered by digital weights, with interactive workouts built in. It’s like having a personal trainer and a full gym, in the convenience of your home. One system, the size of a flat-screen TV, replaces every piece of equipment in a weight room.
I can't believe it took until the year 2018 for the world to get a smart weight lifting machine - but i'm glad it has arrived! It is amazing to see how much thought and effort went into this product from the team. Great work!Pros:
packs small against the wall like a TV. Great workout in the homeCons:
For someone that benches 450lbs, dead lifts 600+lbs. etc...I'd literally pull down any modern house wall that is not structurally re-enforced with quality steel girders. This would be great for the classic programmer soy boy.Pros:
Tries to simplify workoutsCons:
For advance users, they'll need a strong wall support
All I can imagine is the thing flying off the wall when I pull hard on it. What is the full range of weight it can simulate? From the limited information I can gather from the Tonal site (can't find any external/independent reviews) 23lb or even 120lb is on the low end, and I am not an ego lifter.
Also how many "white gloved" installs do you get? if i'm renting and moving around alot will I also have to invest in a power drill?
Definitely going to keep my eye on this, because if it actually does what it says, it could be a game changer. However considering the price tag I need more information and objective reviews from trusted sources before I can commit.Pros:
mounting concerns, scarce information and details
The Tonal team have created something special here. Definitely check it out. I'm so glad it's finally available!Pros:
It's compact, efficient, and guides you well through a customized strength training regimen. It's fun to use and gets updated content.Cons:
From all the at home workouts, this is by far the most incredibl. Goodbye bow flex and thigh master and ridiculous 1001 other gimmicks.Pros:
eliminates barriers from being able to workout. There’s no more excuses if you can have a full gym at your home.Cons:
I like working in studios and the gym around people but with an option an home, I can still work out with ConveniencePros:
Skip: Rain, horrible traffic, subway not running, class not available, it’a late, ...etc.
now I have working out at home option when I needCons:
Nothing so far. will see how it goes over the long term
This is the very definition of investing in yourself. Can't wait to try it out!Pros:
Elegant, beautiful and practical. This product is ideal for people who love to work out but don't necessarily want to go to the gym.Cons:
May be a tad bit expensive but I would have no problem paying for something like this.
I have used the Tonal machine. It is the real deal. No more banging weights. The motors provide a better work out. Excited to be connected to trainers to help me with workouts.Pros:
Strength room on your wall, connected to trainers, making it easier to get workouts inCons:
cant think of any
IF YOU LIVE IN A CONDO OR APARTMENT PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING TONAL, OR IF THE UNIT WILL BE INSTALLED ON A WALL THAT BACKS A BEDROOM IN YOUR HOUSE. There are a lot of questions about installing Tonal in the Group. TONAL as a company is being dishonest at future buyers expense. Tonal does not disclose that this unit can possibly make noise on opposite walls, or units above, below or even across from you.. My next door neighbors experienced a saw sound in their unit.. I asked TONAL before I purchased if I can use the unit and not disturb my Roommate.. they said yes.. put the Bluetooth headphones on.. They Neglect to tell me that the unit itself sounds like a chain saw in my roommates room.. I was working with support and they acted as if this Never happened.. The installers told me 1 out of 10 installs is returned because of sound problems.. I spent 2k trying to sound proof the wall, have the wall repaired and installing a power outlet under the unit.. Nothing stoped the sound travel.. 2 walls in my home where damaged and TONAL has not done anything in good faith to resolve.. Their site survey does not mention sound problems.. They only care to sell units.. If something goes wrong they don’t care about there customer.. This is not on their web site anywhere.. AGAIN, purchase this machine at your own risk if you have shared walls or putting machine on a wall where someone might be sleeping.. As long as you’re OK with having them take it back if sound problem happens.. if you’re ok with your wall having multiple bolts inside and TONAL not exposing this to you and you having to fix the wall after their machine fails to install correctly.. For the installers they get paid less $ on FAILED installs.. so even the people working hard for the company ends up working for less money because they don't properly sell the machine..Pros:
DOES NOT WORK IN MY CANDO
