Although gyms are opening back up, we understand if you’re not ready to go back. You may not feel safe. Or maybe you just really invested in your home-gym setup, and it’s still keeping you motivated. For those in the latter group, allow us to tempt you with some new equipment. You’ve likely seen ads for the Mirror or heard about it here on the Strategist. It looks like a regular wall mirror when not in use, but turn it on and you instantly access hundreds of different workout classes from strength training to yoga and more. When you work out with the Mirror, it doubles as a screen, so you see both your own reflection and the instructor, which senior writer Karen Iorio Adelson found useful. “In a kettlebell class, it was helpful to watch the instructor demo the moves and then check my own form in the mirror,” she says. You can also personalize your workouts based on injuries or limitations and track your metrics to see how you’re improving. Iorio Adelson’s conclusion after testing it: It’s the most design-minded of all the smart home-gym systems out there. And “it can handle almost all of your fitness needs,” she said. With everything the Mirror offers, it is a bit of an investment, but now through the end of July, you can get $150 off the Mirror, plus free delivery and installation (typically $250), for a total savings of $400 with code JULY400. You’ll still have to pay the $39 per month subscription charge, but these initial savings add up to nearly a year’s worth of classes.
