Transform Your Home Gym with High-End Tech Workout Equipment
A home gym is one of the best investments you can make in your health and well being. Nothing is more convenient than rolling out of bed and having the gym waiting for you in the next room. Recent advancements in fitness tech make it easier than ever to build a home gym that’s sure to keep you in shape. Equipment from brands such as Peleton, Mirror, and Tonal are great options for your next home gym investment.
One of the first major innovations in the marriage between tech and fitness was from the Peleton brand. Peteton has been at the forefront since its introduction of the interactive stationary bike, a piece of gym equipment that features a fully integrated display and connects to 14 classes offered daily of a library of more than 5,000 that are available on-demand.
In addition to this interactive element, the Peleton bike boasts unparalleled compact design. Its frame, which is constructed from sturdy carbon steel, is only 4’ by 2’. This tiny size makes it an easy-to-integrate addition to an existing home gym or a great beginner piece to build the rest of your home gym around. Lightweight and high tech, this device is the perfect example of tech-savvy fitness.
More recently, Peleton branched out beyond stationary bikes and released the Tread device. Like the Peleton bike, it is compact and lightweight, but it is a treadmill for those exercise enthusiasts who would rather run a mile than ride a cycle. The Tread features many of the same benefits of the Peleton bike, still, such as connectivity to classes and customized training.
Peleton may be to cardio as Tonal is to core strength. Claiming to be the most technologically advanced fitness system available, Tonal is built around the availability of personal trainer—but instead of going to the gym, they are available, virtually, in your own home. The Tonal system is mounted on the wall and offers a range of exercise modalities.
Aimed at providing a full-body workout, the system features more than 170 moves and provides 200 pounds of resistance to generate customized workouts based on data gathered by the device’s internal AI. As you embark on the strength training programs, Tonal will measure your strength and adapt accordingly.
Pair all of these features with the availability of a live, personal coach, and Tonal’s appeal becomes clear. The Tonal coach can access all of the data collected by the device and provide specialized workouts to help you work towards specific goals or work on general strength training. Guidance from your Tonal coach ensures that you are on track and achieving an optimal workout.
Like Tonal and Peleton, Mirror is a sleek, modern addition to any home gym. It is unique, though, in the fact that it offers no specific exercise equipment—only the display itself, which, as the name suggests, is a mirror. This mirror reveals its power as a versatile exercise partner, though, through the countless classes it connects to, allowing you to enjoy guided workouts such as cardio, boxing, yoga, or barre.
Mirror then collects data from your workout and gives you tips in real time for how to optimize your exercise. Based on the information, Mirror will produce customized recommendations for your future workouts and even let you compare stats with friends and other users
Of course, part of the appeal of Mirror is its inconspicuousness. When powered off, it simply looks like a full-length mirror, with no clues whatsoever that it doubles as a home gym. If you are looking for discretion, or if you are short on space, this can be an ideal solution to integrate into your home decor.
