What’s New on Tonal April 2020


Keeping you healthy is our top priority, so we’re trying new things to help you and your family find balance as you shelter in place. 

  • Tonal Yoga on YouTube: Tonal Yoga is now available for free on YouTube. If you’re spending time away from your Tonal, just head to our YouTube channel to try a variety of yoga styles, like power, recovery or beginner bites. 
  • The Daily Pause: Every day at 6pm PST a Tonal coach leads a calming activity session in the Official Tonal Community where we come together for a moment of peaceful meditation, stretching, foam rolling, or breathwork. 
  • Coaches from Home: You’ll begin to see new content from Tonal coaches in their homes, including new workouts on your trainer and new social events in the Official Tonal Community. Read more.
