I tried the $3,000 digital weights machine that's like a Peloton for strength training and found how at-home fitness systems are the future — at least for those that can afford it

Tonal is a home training device that is mounted on your wall like a peloton for strength training and offers on-demand coaching and digitally linked personalized exercises.
It costs $ 3,000 and is one of the first products on the home fitness workout market that, like peloton, focuses on strength training instead of cardio.
I recently tried Tonal to see what it's like compared to traditional weight lifting.
You can find more stories on the Business Insider homepage.
Tonal is a home strength training device that uses electromagnetism to create resistance and attach it to your wall to enable personalized training with over 200 exercises such as deadlifts, bicep curls and overhead presses, and on-demand coaching.
With Tonal, fear of performance in the gym could be a thing of the past - no more self-confidence in front of your apparently more experienced athletes, no more than 30-minute tours to the gym and no more membership in the gym.
That is, if you can afford the $ 3,000 price tag.
Tonal was invented by Aly Orady, a Hewlett-Packard veteran who was looking for an easier way to stay in shape at home without sweaty, used equipment and tedious trips to the gym.
It works similarly to his cardio cousin Peloton, whose stationary bikes are available for retail for $ 2,000. Both are part of a growing trend where digital home fitness systems are on the rise and the popularity of gyms and boutique gyms is decreasing.

Tonal is one of the first products on the market to focus on strength training. Fitness experts have increasingly stressed the importance of weight training in addition to cardio for maintaining health. In an interview with TechCrunch, Orady said that a significant number of Tonal users also own a peloton bike (which is a collective investment of $ 5,000 if you're wondering).
I tried tonal training for myself in the company's showroom in San Francisco at the end of 2019. It was a little difficult to get used to at first, but I knew that if I owned one, I would adapt and eventually have a practical way of staying fit in the privacy of my home.
It's a shame that my budget is not enough, and even if it weren't, mounting such a device on a wall in my apartment would probably make my landlord less than satisfied.
That's how my training went.
