King Smith Fitness is also challenging Tonal with a compact strength-training machine called the Gym Box. Like the Tonal, it has electromagnetic resistance technology that tracks your weight with every move, adding more weight as you get stronger. We previously tested a similar product called the Vitruvian V-Form Trainer, but were unimpressed due to the jerky resistance adjustment. The Gymbox felt pretty smooth after just a brief use at CES, so I have high hopes for this machine.
