Tonal Launches a New At-Home Strength Training System

Meet Tonal, a digital weight strength training system designed with Whipsaw

August 16, 2018

Say hello to Tonal, the first ever digital weight strength training system with interactive video workouts that are powered by machine learning. It’s like having a personal trainer and an entire gym in your home. It is a compact, wall-mounted unit that combines sleek hardware with on-demand personalized coaching. Powered by an electromagnetic resistance engine rather than large metal plates and gravity, Tonal’s “digital weights” provide smooth and precise weight in single pound increments, replacing an entire gym full of equipment. The digital weights measure and respond to you automatically. If you’re struggling to complete a rep, sensors automatically adjust the weight.

Whipsaw worked with Tonal for three years to develop this advanced system. “Tonal was the ultimate comprehensive design problem – packed with ergonomic, aesthetic, user experience, material and functional challenges. Every single detail has been perfected for performance, durability and appearance” said Dan Harden.

A simple button-push of the handles also adjusts the weight. When not being used Tonal is compact, understated and elegant with its arms tucked neatly to its sides, making it acceptable on any wall. When in use the arms pivot out on vertical columns and move up or down to accommodate every workout ranging from standing lat pull downs to low squats to lateral chest flys. Smart, beautiful and downright innovative in every way, Tonal is poised to become the fitness machine of choice.

“Tonal has revolutionized these and many other aspects of training, with full-body programs for legs, arms, shoulders, back, and core, incorporating strength, flexibility, and intervals. This is the first time I’ve been in a position to positively impact so many lives.” says Kelly Savage, Tonal’s Head of Curriculum.
