    I'm barely 6' and I sit on the ground to do pulldowns. The bench that comes with it is much shorter/low to the ground than normal (actually a decent useful bench when combined with the machine). I...

    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...
