Has anyone tried the Tonal system for workouts at home? My husband wants to get one that both of us can use, to build more fat-burning muscle. Any feedback? TIA!

No experience, as I opted not to get one after a good bit of research. Reviews are a little hit or miss, seems like the new technology might not yet have all the bugs worked out (also, what do they DO with all that data?!), shipping is taking several months, customer service isn't great, requires some heavy duty installation work (must be multi anchored to studs, limits placement) and the price point is pretty aggressive. We decided to go with a Bowflex and have been VERY happy with it. Found it used on FB marketplace, paid $400 for a nearly brand new roughly $2000 model that our whole family can use. I also have a treadmill and under desk elliptical for cardio. I love the concept, but decided it wasn't the biggest bang for the buck for our needs.

I use hand weights and Velcro leg cuffs. I also have a weighted vest hoola hoop and I use a yoga bolster to get full range of motion. I also have a couple of large stretch bands to work inner muscles, and indoor bike. The bike was the big investment but worth every penny of stress release it provides! I go to an in person yoga class that helps with core/balance and it costs more than going to the gym. I think you will get value in whatever you choose as long as you use it. You are worth it.

      What I've learned this last 2 weeks is consistent. That's I've been able to lose a pound here and there. This morning sucked it was 48 degrees but I am working on being consistent and sticking to it. Am perfectly sticking to it? Hell no but I'm working my ass off!
