At Tonal, we believe in strengthening our mind, body, and soul. Our monthly book club has been going strong now for several months! Read Between the Reps is all about coming together as a community and lifting each other with the power of words. 

Every month, we read a book that helps us build mental strength and find success with Tonal and other areas of our life. After all, working out our minds is just as important as working out our bodies. For June, we’ll be reading Lifespan: Why We Age and Why We Don’t Have To.
