How do Digital Weights work and do they feel different than traditional weights?

In a blindfolded test, users rated Tonal as the highest quality weight machine without ever knowing it’s not a traditional weight stack. Digital weight uses magnetic force instead of gravitational force. You get all the benefits of traditional weights, with additional control and safety provided by Tonal.

Other benefits of digital weight include the ability to increase the weight in 1 lb increments, manipulations to mimic eccentric loading (heavy negatives) and the feeling of chains, as well as a built-in Spotter to ensure you can always complete your reps or do a burnout set.

What is it like to do a Tonal workout?

If you’ve used a cable machine before, you’ll find working out on Tonal very familiar.

The endless configurations of Tonal’s adjustable arms can replicate most machines in the weight room, so you can exercise all of the main muscle groups.

Before you start working out on Tonal, you’ll set your experience level (Beginner, Intermediate, or Advanced) and pick your fitness goals. That allows Tonal to suggest workout programs for you that are based on your goals and experience level.

Your first workout on Tonal starts with a strength assessment that establishes your starting weights for each move. After completing the assessment, Tonal will know the optimal weight for you, so you don’t have to worry about lifting too light or too heavy.

During your workout, you might notice Tonal’s built-in Spotter. Spotter can sense if you’re struggling to complete a rep, and automatically lowers the weight so you can complete the set. If you’ve spent time working out on cable machines in the past, you’ll also notice that Tonal’s digital weights feel smoother than the traditional weight stacks on a cable resistance machine.

Workouts on Tonal might feel more challenging than workouts you’ve done in the past. That’s because Tonal’s electromagnetic weights operate at zero gravity and resist you the entire time you do a rep. This makes for a much more efficient workout.

The best way to experience what it’s like to work out on Tonal is to get a demo! Visit our Try It page to schedule a Virtual Demo or see Pop-Ups near you.

How do weight recommendations work?

We start with a baseline assessment to determine your strength and make weight recommendations for all of the exercises in our library based on those results. Each time you perform one of those exercises, Tonal automatically sets the weight to your recommended weight, then monitors the quality of your reps. At the end of the set, using advanced machine learning, Tonal will update your recommended weights for that movement, as well as related movements. With each set Tonal gets to know you better and responds as you get stronger.

Are the Tonal accessories special?

Yes! The Tonal accessory kit was designed to give you the best Tonal experience. The smart handles and bar include buttons that allow you to conveniently turn the weight on and off once you’re in position and ready for an exercise. The smart handles also include 6-axis gyroscopes to measure your movement in 3-dimensions. The included bench is optimized to be light, durable, and good looking for your home. It is also a little longer and lower to the ground than a standard bench, allowing it to be used for a wider variety of exercises, including step-ups and leg elevated movements. The mat is durable and designed to bear the loads of strength training, yet comfortable for kneeling lifts and floor exercises. The rope and roller allow you to do even more exercises.

What is the T-lock? Can I use my accessories with Tonal?

Tonal’s accessories use our T-lock system to allow you to quickly and smoothly switch between accessories.

If you’d like to use your own accessories, reach out to our support team and they will help you get T-lock adapters.

Can my kids use Tonal?

Tonal is designed for use by adults aged 18 and up. If approved in advance by a physician, teenagers over the age of 15 may use Tonal under direct adult supervision.
