Tonal – An Innovative And Space-Saving Alternative To Traditional Home Gyms
Having a home gym can be a costly and space-consuming venture. If you live in a small space, this can be even more challenging. At home, you also can lose access to gym services like trainers, assessments, and group fitness classes. The folks at Tonal have developed an innovative and space-saving alternative to a home gym.
Tonal is a piece of wall-mounted home gym equipment that needs just two studs and a 7 – by 7-foot space for an installation by Tonal professionals. It is a full-body home gym, workout buddy, assessment tool, and fitness class all in one.
How It Works
Once installed, you can begin the strength assessment, and Tonal will choose a weight for you for each exercise from that point forward. The device also uses up to 17 sensors to understand and correct your form to help prevent injury and help you lift your best. A 24-inch touch-screen display and smartphone app allow you to interact with Tonal. You can choose from hundreds of built-in workouts with instruction for every move. You can even create custom workouts and store them for easy access at a later time.
Tonal comes equipped with adjustable arms and can use up to 200 pounds of resistance to create a full-body workout. There’s no need to change equipment, Tonal’s Smart accessory bundle – which includes a smart bar, smart handles, rope, bench roller, and workout mat – allows you to customize your workout even further. With a small adapter, you can also connect other accessories you may already have.
The sensors and six-axis gyroscopes evaluate your movements and adjust loads in real-time. If it senses you’re struggling, the device will reduce the weight to finish your set. The device eliminates inertia and provides resistance through your entire rep for a more effective workout. As you use Tonal, you’ll get progress reports and workout summaries which remain stored on the device and also accessible via your smartphone. The app will also allow you to meet new coaches and get access to just-released workouts and updates.
The Fine Print
If you would like to try Tonal in person or get more information, they have nine showrooms in eight different cities.
Tonal comes in at an MSRP of $2,995 with the Smart Accessory bundle costing $495. Purchasing this device also requires a $50 per month membership for at least the first 12 months. Alternatively, you can opt to finance Tonal at $149 per month. The financing option includes Tonal, the Smart Accessory bundle, a 3-year membership, delivery, and installation. If you’re unsure about your purchase, Tonal comes with a 30-day trial and 3-year warranty to put your mind at ease.
Tonal is a great option full of innovative technology for those who have limited space or don’t live near a gym. While it may be a pricy option, multi-year gym commitments and personal trainers often cost just as much. If the price isn’t a drawback for you, Tonal can be a game-changer for your health while taking up very little space in your home.
