Product News What’s New on Tonal May 2021

Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

This May, we celebrate our Asian American and Pacific Islander Community. Throughout the month, we will be highlighting AAPI culture and strength across all of our platforms. We also use this month to acknowledge and condemn the violence that this community has endured. We will be using our platform to create an informative space for everyone to learn and celebrate. Keep an eye out for our first Tonal Talk with Michelle Wie West, happening on May 7, and stay tuned for more updates throughout the month.

10 Billion Pounds of Strength Gains

Announcing our biggest achievement yet. The Tonal community has hit 10 billion pounds of strength-building goal-crushing digital weight—and we’re just getting warmed up.

More Movement History in the App

You can now see more data about your performance on each movement in the Tonal mobile app. Accessible from either the Workout Activity page or the Completed Movements list, tap into a movement to see your personal records for strength, power, and volume. You can also see detailed data on the last time you performed the movement. Geek out on information such as what your average set power output is, how many total reps of a move you’ve done,  a detailed history of each time you’ve completed that move, and more.

Strength Score Graphs for Body Regions in the App

Looking to dive in a little deeper on your Strength Score gains? We’ve added the option to see your Strength Score graph by body region in the Tonal mobile app. Select your preferred body region from a dropdown under the Strength Score graph to see a more detailed view of how far you’ve come.
