It’s happened to all of us. It’s time for the year to get in shape and we decided to subscribe to an expensive gym that, at best, we’ll end up going a few times a month.
Being able to boast of a heart attack physique has become an almost indispensable requirement in the era of social media and dating apps, but in a context where exercise options are overwhelming,there are many who end up giving up halfway in the search for marked abs and a defined back.
Among the culprits to point out are the agendas loaded with work and social commitments,as well as a greater willingness to enjoy several seasons followed by the favorite series on Netflix than to give the present in exhausting fitness class become the trend of the moment.
Whether you choose to practice Zumba, Crossfit, Krav Maga or traditional gym routines, being able to take the time to stay in shape is increasingly difficult. Add to that the economic aspect of having to pay for increasingly costly activities, the picture can be daunting for those who resign themselves to letting themselves be.
The arrival in the market of interactive options and leveraged in technology such as the system known as Platoon, the New York firm that offers luxury spinning classes with stationary bikes that cost USD 2,000 and present a huge screen that allows access to the classes remotely through a monthly subscription service,have revolutionized the fitness industry in the digital and connected age.
Now it’s time for a revolutionary “mirror” that appears to be just another ornament in the living room but actually hides a portal to a myriad of classes of different routines such as yoga, sweeps, pilates, boxing and more that promise to inspire even the most sedentary people.
Named Mirror,the innovative development has just gone on sale in the US for a modest sum of USD 1,495 plus the corresponding taxes. The interactive home gym is simply an LCD screen that is controlled by an app designed, at the moment, only for iPhone phones and Apple’s operating system called iOS.
For USD 39 per month, different on-demand classes given live by remote instructors are available. A built-in camera allows coaches to see their students in real time and to be able to instruct them to make the necessary modifications to improve their performance and results.
In addition, experts can help students achieve a heart rate goal by analyzing personal data after syncing your Apple Watch via Bluetooth.
Its manufacturers claim that it is the future of fitness by positioning itself as the “first virtually invisible interactive home gym that offers live classes” directly in the living room of the house.
Unlike other gadgety home exercise machines, the Mirror is simply a full-body mirror when it’s off. But when it’s turned on it becomes a multipurpose tool that anyone can use to get in shape.
So far more than fifty different live classes are offered per week, as well as having the option to access a library of on-demand routines available 24 hours a day and unlimitedly.
Developments under the subscription format like Peloton and Mirror will seek to keep paving the way for a multibillion-dollar industry that promises to grow by leaps and bounds as more people decide to have greater independence when performing their exercise routines.
