Coolness factor aside, this piece of equipment is a legitimate all-in-one gym. I originally used Tonal in free-lift mode, creating my own workouts, but I’ve since signed up for multi-week programs (“The House that Paul Built” by Paul is currently killing me slowly.) The programs are tough, but encouraging. There’s nothing out there that can challenge you like Tonal’s eccentric mode. The barbell squat with eccentric mode on is my current favorite move. Incredibly grateful for Tonal.
