You can read all about Tonal and its features, but to really feel what it’s like to lift adaptive digital weight in a workout personalized just for you, you need to experience it for yourself. 

That’s why Tonal offers interactive demo sessions led by Tonal experts at showrooms and Nordstrom stores across the country. At all of these locations, you can try out Tonal, get all your questions answered, and even complete a short workout session during your demo. 

You can find Tonal showrooms in Short Hills, New Jersey; Tysons Corner, Virginia; Los Angeles; Dallas; and, most recently, Boston Seaport. Additionally, Tonal is available to try at Nordstrom stores in cities including San Diego, Denver, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Austin, and Seattle.

When people try Tonal (even professional athletes), they are often surprised by how smooth the adaptive digital weight feels, says Tonal expert Val Zulali, who manages the Tonal showroom in Short Hills, New Jersey, and has been leading demos since 2019. 

“People see our commercials and our amazing partnerships, but they truly want to see how Tonal works and feels,” adds Zulali “It’s great to walk them through how the arms move, how the Smart Accessories work, how easy it is to navigate through our content, and how Tonal’s founder Aly Orady really was able to bring the whole gym to your wall.”

There’s one moment in every Tonal demo that Zulali always looks forward to: “It’s the look of shock and excitement when people finish their last rep and can turn the weight off with a click of a button on the Smart Handles,” she explains. “It happens in almost every demo, and it’s always that ‘wow’ factor when they see how it’s possible that we can literally turn the weight off.

Here’s What to Expect When You Book a Tonal Demo

Ready to give Tonal a try? Here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions about the demo experience. 

How does a Tonal demo work?

Once you book a demo, you will receive a confirmation email from your local Tonal expert with important details about your demo. They will ask you a few questions to get to know you better and make sure you get the most out of your visit.

Once I arrive for a demo, what happens?

Each demo is unique and tailored to your specific needs and questions. The Tonal expert will show you how to adjust the arms, guide you through different movements, show you the variety of content, and more. You can even get set up to do your strength assessment, which will establish your starting weights on Tonal. If you’re trying out Tonal at a Nordstrom location, you’ll first locate Tonal’s shop-in-shop experience in either the Women’s or Men’s active department and be greeted by a Tonal expert. 

Who will lead me through the demo?

A Tonal expert will guide you through every step of the demo—all you have to do is show up.

What if I’m new to strength training? Will I be completely lost in the Tonal demo?

Many of our members are new to strength training, and Tonal makes it easy to get started. Your local Tonal expert will walk you through the basics from moving the arms to navigating through the workouts and programs. By the end of the demo, you‘ll have a solid understanding of Tonal regardless of your fitness level or prior knowledge.

Will I be able to do a workout on Tonal during the demo?

Absolutely! If you prefer to experience a full Tonal workout, your Tonal expert will take you through your strength assessment to get you set up, and from there, you will be able to choose a short workout to try. We also invite folks to come back a second time to do a full workout after their initial demo if preferred. 

If I like the Tonal experience, can I purchase one onsite?

Yes, you can purchase a Tonal onsite at a showroom or Nordstrom store. Your Tonal expert will walk you through the ordering process and provide you with all the information you need to complete the purchase.

What are my options if I want to try Tonal but can’t do an onsite demo?

If you don’t live near a Tonal showroom or Nordstrom location, you can book a free virtual demo in which a Tonal expert will give you a personalized one-on-one demo via video call. You’ll get a chance to ask all of your questions and see Tonal in action without leaving home. Tonal experts are prepared to make sure you get the most out of your virtual experience, whether that’s showing you the variety of content offered or showcases moves you’re interested in exploring.
