Are you a fan of working out in front of the mirror? Well, this new device takes that to a whole new level.
The mirror is unassuming piece of décor that transforms into a personal gym class when it’s turned on — possibly changing the way we work out.
The device is “the world’s first nearly invisible interactive home gym that brings live and on-demand fitness classes right to your home,” as stated on their Twitter page.
Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Aniston and Ellen DeGeneres are just a few of the celebrities who are major fans of this new exercise equipment.
How does it work?
The mirror plugs in and hooks up to your home Wi-Fi system through an app on your phone. This also helps with keeping fingerprints off the mirror (unless you have kids, then it’s inevitable.) From the app, you can choose from over 70 live fitness classes from boxing to dance cardio, and even yoga.
You’re also face-to-face with the instructor making it easy to follow along for a great workout experience.
The 52-inch-long and 1.4-inch-thick rectangular device retails for $1,495 and also requires a monthly subscription which costs an additional $39 (all in the name of a great booty though, am I right?).
The New York Times, however, is calling this “the most narcissistic piece of exercise equipment ever” due to the fact you’re situated in front of a mirror for your whole workout. But isn’t that what it’s like in fitness classes/studios anyways? With the big wall of mirrors and the instructor guiding you through the movements, the only difference being it’s now in the comfort of your own home.
We’d all be lying if we said we didn’t check ourselves out in the gym mirrors during a workout, but is that narcissistic? No, I’d rather call it self-love and appreciation than narcissism, so go forth and be shameless in your mirror workouts!
