When it comes to making New Year’s resolutions, more than 55 percent of people pick health and fitness-related goals, according to a report from the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. Yet, research shows that as early as Jan. 8 every year, people begin to give up on their intended new lifestyle.
Enter: Motivation in the form of fitness equipment that makes it easier than ever to maintain your promise to yourself. Wellness innovations come and go, but the groundbreaking and innovative “Mirror” has been a game-changer for the fitness industry.
The $1,495 interactive personal fitness trainer allows people to take their training into their own hands with on-demand cardio and strength classes offered by elite instructors. Not only can you see your virtual instructor, but you can also see yourself working out in real-time, allowing you to gauge both your form and progress.
One journalist reviewing the fitness system said: “Mirror was designed for people like me who are low on time and feel triumphantly accomplished if they can squeeze in exercise three times a week. What if you could take that HIIT class on your own time?”
And when it’s not in use? It simply looks like a regular looking glass hanging on the wall in your home, taking up a mere two-feet of space.
The Mirror offers nine different types of classes in varying lengths led by nine different instructors, with the option to join in with live workouts with other people from around the world. There’s also a built-in heart rate monitor and the Mirror will tell you how many calories you’ve burned, while also sending virtual high fives in the form of motivational praise.
If you live with roommates or family, Mirror allows up to six people to join in on the membership. The magic comes from the associated iOS app containing the workouts, which costs an additional $39 per month.
Just in time for you to crush your 2020 intentions — on a time schedule that actually fits in with your life — Mirror is offering potential customers the chance to save $467 with code ‘NEWYEAR20’.
