6 Workout Mirrors That Turn Your Home Into a Fitness Studio

These smart devices create an immersive, interactive experience no matter what kind of class you prefer.

Working out at home is easy enough, but unless you’re streaming from a tablet to your bike or treadmill, viewing your workout can be a pain. Craning your neck to see your TV from your yoga mat? That’s encouraging all kinds of misalignment. Breaking your flow during a HIIT workout to check the next move on your phone, which is laying flat on the floor? Not ideal. There’s a reason every gym or studio is plastered with mirrors — not only does it give you a way to watch your own performance, it allows you to see the instructor no matter where they are in the space.

That’s why — with people still stuck at home and gyms unlikely to return to normal any time soon — workout mirrors have become the latest at-home fitness equipment craze. (The OG mirror, The MIRROR, which debuted in 2018, was recently acquired by Lululemon for $500 million.)

These devices, which look like a standard decorative mirror when turned off, power on to beam trainers directly into your home; as they demo the moves, you can see how your form compares. Why does that matter? Fitness is all about quality over quantity — the better you perform a move, the more benefits you’ll get from it (and the less likely you are to set yourself up for injury).

Despite their sleek footprint, these high-tech devices can create an entire gym experience in your living room, basement, second bedroom — wherever you prefer to set it up. All of them act as oversized, wall-mounted smartphones, allowing you to browse hundreds of workout classes with a touch of the screen or a connected app, but some offer interactive experiences with coaches, others provide the motivational boost that comes from working out live with other people, and others even come with all the equipment you need to complete the workouts.

Considering that 59% of Americans don’t plan to return to their gym after the pandemic, according to a survey by TD Ameritrade, it’s no wonder people are opting to invest in workout mirrors over bulkier, single-purpose machines like bikes, treadmills, and squat racks. After all, there’s only so much real estate inside your own house — and how much space you have shouldn’t limit how good of a workout you can get within your own four walls.

Looking to build out your own home gym? These workout mirrors offer everything from unlimited classes and real-time metric displays to personalized feedback from instructors.

The Mirror
Mirror mirror.co

The slim, chic MIRROR — which can be propped against or mounted on the wall — blends into any living room, but when you turn it on, it reveals an immersive studio experience powered by an iOS app. The LCD screen behind the 52-inch reflective surface streams over 70 new classes from 50 workout genres a week, all of which are stored in a massive on-demand library. (The Mirror comes with a set of resistance bands, but you’ll need to invest in additional equipment on your own.)

While you’re working out, you’ll see metrics like heart rate and calorie burn pop on the screen; they’re pulled via Bluetooth from the included chest strap heart rate monitor or your Apple Watch. There’s also a built-in camera that can be used for one-on-one personal training sessions, or to see classmates and receive real-time guidance from the instructor.


Slide open the door of NordicTrack’s Vault and you’ll find a foam roller, mini and full-size resistance bands, yoga blocks, free weights, and kettlebells — basically, everything you need for a home gym experience in less space than a bookshelf. The mirror even rotates so you’re not stuck working out in an awkward position. Use the embedded 32-inch touchscreen to navigate iFit’s live and on-demand workout library — including pilates, yoga, lifting, and interval training — then watch yourself mirror the trainer’s form on the oversized, 60-inch surface. Yea, it’s pricy, but so is purchasing all those pieces of equipment on your own. (If you already have your own gear, you can purchase a cheaper standalone version.)

Echelon Reflect 50

Echelon’s mirror comes in two sizes: the Reflect 40" and the Reflect 50" Touch. Opt for the larger one — if you have the space — for a powerful, 32-inch touchscreen that lets you browse through live and on-demand cardio, yoga, strength, pilates, and boxing workouts (you can even take classes with Mario Lopez). The front-facing camera and built-in speakers will make you feel like you’re in the studio instead of your living room, and the Bluetooth connectivity allows you to sync heart rate monitors for on-screen metrics. Echelon also uses a gamified, point-based system (depending on how long you spend in different heart rate zones) to stoke the competitive spirit; rankings are displayed on the leaderboard at the end of class.

ProForm proform.com

Stand Proform’s pivoting mirror in a corner to turn any room into a home gym. A more affordable version of NordicTrack’s Vault, the rear side of the mirror surreptitiously stores the included accessories: a 10-pound barbell, two 5-pound dumbbells, four 2.5-pound weight plates, three resistance bands, and a yoga mat. Scroll through iFit’s library of live and on-demand classes using the 22-inch HD touchscreen embedded behind the 60-inch reflective surface.

You won't receive real-time feedback from instructors, but you can sync your activity tracker to the device to see your metrics on screen, and it automatically stores your workout performance and uses AI to suggest future workouts.

QAIO Flex Standard

There’s no space this mirror can’t fit in: It comes in three sizes (55, 65, and 85 inches) with four display options (a wall mount, a leaning mount, a standalone mount, and a ceiling mount). And while most workout mirrors require a subscription — in addition to the purchase price — to access classes, this one syncs with apps like Nike Training Club, Beach Body, Tone It Up, and more. An HD camera allows for personalized virtual coaching sessions, and, in addition to the touchscreen, the embedded microphone lets you operate the device with Google Assist Voice Control (and connects to Google Home).

Tempo Studio

Tempo isn’t technically a mirror, but it uses a motion-sensor camera and pulses of infrared light create a skeletal 3-D model of your body. As you move through cardio, strength, HIIT, mobility, and recovery classes, it tracks 25 essential joints to provide real-time feedback on your form and technique that’s displayed on the device’s 42-inch screen; for example, it may cue you to shift your weight into your heels or go deeper in your squat. Below the screen, you’ll find a storage cabinet for the included weights (ranging from 1.25 to 10 pounds), and on the back are a bench press bar and two dumbbell bars. There’s even space to store the included heart rate sensor, workout mat, and foam roller.
