Virtual Group Workouts on Tonal
  • Now you can work out together when you’re not together
  • Choose a workout and invite up to 10 Tonal members to join
  • See everyone’s reps in real-time and share virtual high-fives

We all miss the energy of working out together for that extra boost of fun and motivation. That’s why we’re so excited to be introducing Virtual Group Workouts: join your friends in the same workout, at the same time, and see each other’s progress, all from the comfort of home. Work out together, even when you’re not together.


Working out together, virtually, on Tonal is easy.

Choose a workout

Simply open a workout, tap the Partner Workout icon, and select Group Workout. Any guided workouts you can currently complete as a Partner Workout will have the Group Workout functionality. 

Invite up to 10 friends

Tonal generates a code for you to share with Tonal friends. Your friends will enter the code in the Tonal menu under “Join Group Workout.”

Start the workout

Everyone hangs out in a “waiting room” until you officially start the workout. If you start the workout before everyone arrives, no sweat—any latecomers will simply skip the waiting room and immediately join the workout. 

Work out together

We designed Virtual Group Workouts to make it easy for everyone to stay on the same set, because staying in sync is always more fun together. The Leader can move the workout ahead, or skip a move if a quicker pace is desired.

What to Expect

An inside look at how your friends are performing.

See everyone’s reps in real-time

Each Tonal member will have a personal avatar on their screen that shows how far along they are in their set. Stay on the lookout for any Personal Records in the group during the workout.

High-fives all around

Cheer each other on as you go. Simply tap on someone’s avatar followed by the clapping emoji to give a virtual high-five.

Lift more together

As you lift, a group volume counter will pop up in the corner, showing how many pounds the group has lifted together. Your workout summary will also indicate what the complete number of pounds is at the end, so you can celebrate how much more you can accomplish together.

We can’t wait to see you working out with all of your favorite Tonal friends. Start planning a Virtual Group Workout with your friends today, and let us know what you think in the Official Tonal Community.
