After taking the fitness world by storm earlier this year, Mirror – a smart fitness device that acts as both a full-length mirror and an LCD screen – recently launched a new feature.
This feature gives you the full benefits of a 1-on-1 personal trainer without inviting one into your home.
Through the device’s built-in video camera, speaker, and microphone, you’re able to watch your personal trainer giving live instructions and demonstrations.
And he or she will be able to do the same, so they can give you real-time advice for improvement.
Until now, Mirror relied on its other main offerings, which include live, on-demand barre, cardio, kickboxing, Pilates, and strength training fitness classes (as well as for other disciplines).
For those wanting to train in the comfort of their own home, it was an already revolutionary development that allowed users to say goodbye to squinting at YouTube videos riddled with ads on their smartphones and tablets.
Granted, there’s still a hefty price to pay: Mirror comes with a $1,495 base price, $39 monthly access fee, and $40 charge for each 30-minute personal training session.
But that extra $40 per session may very well be worth it for many users, as they’re less formally structured.
While Mirror matches trainers and clients based on a host of criteria, you’ll have the freedom to request a change of exercise and/or activity.
