“Every person striving for greatness must prioritize efficiency.

So for me, Tonal and the technology it uses to maximize efficiency while still doing a complete workout is a perfect fit,” said James.
“To have LeBron James, one of the greatest athletes in the world, invest in Tonal is a pinnacle moment for us,” said Aly Orady, founder and CEO, Tonal. “The technology, guidance and personalization of the Tonal experience has helped set us apart with those looking to take their fitness to the next level, and it’s incredibly validating to have LeBron recognize the versatility that Tonal brings to his performance training.”
