SAN FRANCISCO, CA (March 1, 2021) — Tonal, the smartest home gym and personal trainer, announced today that it partnered with Nordstrom to bring its revolutionary intelligent strength training system to new customers across the country. Beginning in March, the experience will launch in the Women’s Active department in 40 Nordstrom locations across 21 states in the U.S., including 12 states where Tonal had not yet had a physical location. The partnership will be brought to life through a 50 square foot concept where visitors can experience a full Tonal demo and try a workout firsthand.
Tonal is pioneering intelligent fitness and has set the bar for connected strength training as the clear leader with more than 90% market share in the category. It is the only product that combines revolutionary equipment, digital weight, and the most advanced A.I. software available. Tonal is moving the industry forward with adaptive resistance technology that learns from the user, for a more personalized and more effective full-body workout.
“It’s a natural fit for us to partner with one of the most respected retail brands in the world and introduce Tonal to Nordstrom customers across the country,” said Christopher Stadler, Tonal’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We are excited for more people to experience the power of digital weight, and this partnership underscores our continued retail momentum and broadening our reach to new customers.”
“We know customers are looking for inspired workouts that elevate their wellness ambitions, and we’re excited to offer them a dynamic new digital fitness experience through our partnership with Tonal,” said Lori Marten, Nordstrom Vice President and Divisional Merchandise Manager. “Our goal is to help customers discover the latest active gear for style, performance and everything in-between, and we look forward to making it easier than ever to discover everything in one place so they can look and feel their best.”
Nordstrom is a multi-brand Active destination offering unique partnerships and brands customers can’t find anywhere else. The company is a known retail partner of choice for direct-to-consumer brands to grow their business in regional markets. In December 2020, Nordstrom launched a new Active microsite responding to how customers shop for activewear, athleisure and gear throughout the year. The site enables customers to search for Active brands by activity or category for the whole family, in addition to finding fitness and wellness advice, expert tips and product and performance guides that support their fitness and wellness goals. The microsite was a first key step to launching the company’s Active ambition and growth strategy for the 2021 year.
