At-home workouts are more popular now than perhaps ever before. This is for a variety of reasons, from desiring an alternative to a crowded gym due to the pandemic to wanting to avoid being outdoors when the weather is less than ideal to wanting to tap into the ‘smart’ workout movement for at-home workouts. Whatever your reason for beginning an exciting new at-home workout regimen, we have compiled some of our favorite smart home workout equipment you could consider as you begin:
If you are willing to invest in your workout equipment, say at around $1,895, then the Peloton Bike is a smart device that makes a great addition to your indoor workout regimen along with some fashionable athletic apparel. The stationary bike featuring a 21.5-inch touchscreen display is designed to mimic what you would experience when riding a bike outdoors on a roadway. You can also participate in on-demand and even live classes, all from the comfort of home. When you consider that this smart workout equipment could in essence replace a gym membership, the purchase price isn’t as shocking.
When you first look at this device it seems pretty innocuous. It looks like a full-length mirror, similar to one that you would find in any house around the country. If you take a closer look though, you will see the LCD screen, which allows you to take on-demand, instructor-led live fitness classes via the Mirror. You will truly be saying “mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fittest of them all?” after making the $1,495 investment in your health. The mirror itself works as your connection to these classes while allowing you to check your form when you perform exercises. The class options are vast, encompassing a wide range of fitness levels and class options. You can try cardio classes, strength classes, yoga and more. Try a yoga class via your new mirror while wearing your best athletic wear for women to get the new year started off right.
Considered the best smart free weight at-home gym equipment, Tempo offers storage for 16 plates, weighing 10, 5, 2 ½ and 1 pound. The system also features a 42-inch HD touchscreen display and one 25-lb and two 7.5 dumbbells. Tempo is designed to blend into your home’s design much like the mirror. However, it does take up a bit more room, since you store weights inside. Your purchase price of $1,955, comes along with everything already mentioned plus a foam roller, workout mat and heart rate monitor. It also is the only smart equipment available that gives you real-time feedback on your form, making it ideal if your goal is to safely increase your strength without fear of injury. Combine your purchase of Tempo with some new activewear pants to start your new at-home routine on the right foot.
With more people working from home now than before and more options in terms of smart workout equipment, it is no surprise that the smart home workout industry is booming. The three options listed above are just a few of the best on the market. Regardless of what type of equipment you choose, you can be sure that investing in such equipment is a wise use of resources.
