    All workout equipment hits a different target audience. I can't say that I'd NEVER consider a Tonal. If I had a very tight space then I probably would. I wouldn't need the subscription, I'm...

    I had no issues with my almost 50 year old knees When I had my PowerTec. Very comfortable. You're leaning back with the movement and little strain on the low back and I felt nothing in the knees. ...
