Tempo Studio adds new equipment for more of that gym experience at home

Tempo Studio is already esteemed for offering its users a complete home gym experience, due in part to its focus on strength training with its bundled gym accessories and equipment, but now it’s being made even better with the addition of more equipment. Today, the company announced its suite of new accessories and expanded on-demand workouts to make the home gym experience even more personal.

Right from the onset, the Tempo Studio was unique in the world of smart fitness displays because it included weights, dumbbells, and a barbell that allowed users to challenge themselves when building muscles — unlike its rivals, like Mirror, which merely focused on high-intensity workouts and your body weight for strength training.

The first of the new equipment is a brand new kettlebell system, which leverages the existing weight plates that come with Tempo Studio. The bar and handle allow for quick adjustments to make the kettlebell conducive to your workouts, so you’re never over- or under-exerting yourself. The second is a folding squat rack that adds safety by allowing users to add the necessary weights to the barbell. And lastly, the folding bench adds a new layer of activity with Tempo Studio workouts, since many exercises were traditionally done on the ground. For example. bench presses are now more natural in form because you’ll be sitting on the folding bench with the squat rack safely holding the barbell — just like you would do in a normal gym setting.

With the addition of these new pieces of equipment, you may be wondering how and where they’re stored when they’re not being used. While Tempo Studio does a phenomenal job of tucking away plates in a storage compartment just beneath its display, and the barbells and dumbbells are hung in the rear, the squat rack and bench press can be folded for easy storage — while a new weight plate storage accessory will house the heavier weight plates introduced by the company last year.

Even though there’s a focus on strength training through its on-demand and live classes, its selection of workouts now includes boxing and yoga. New customers will have three new packages to choose from: Tempo Starter at $2,495, Tempo Plus at $3,245, and Tempo Pro at $3,995. They’re differentiated by the various new accessories that were mentioned above, but you can learn more about the specifics of what they come with on Tempo Studio’s website.

And lastly, its $39 monthly subscription service provides users with unlimited live and on-demand classes with proper form and coaching with its unique artificial intelligence-powered sensors.

Lululemon’s purchase of Mirror proves home gyms are the future of fitness
mirror at home gym experience with weight training

It's already mid-July, and I haven’t stepped foot in my local gym since March. In New Jersey, small businesses slowly began to reopen in June for the summer rush, but gyms and other fitness related centers have remained closed. There's no definitive date they’ll be able to reopen again. As the pandemic continued, people sought out in-home gym solutions as a temporary solution. Now, as lockdowns return in some states and drag on in others, it's unclear if most people will ever feel comfortable setting foot in a gym again.

Lululemon’s purchase of fitness tech startup Mirror sheds light on the future of the fitness industry. It signals a new paradigm, fueled mainly by fear of getting sick or being exposed to someone who is asymptomatic. It opens the door for home gyms, fitness apps, and other subscription-based fitness services to take precedence. Gyms will never be the same.
Working out around your schedule
Exercising on your time is one aspect that makes these new fitness solutions attractive over the traditional gym experience. It’s tough to force yourself to exercise, and it’s even tougher when you have to juggle workouts with work and commuting. Fitness apps and home gyms eliminate some of the stress. Once people get accustomed to the convenience, they may not want to go back to larger gyms.

Forget the gym. Mirror brings one-on-one personal training to your living room
mirror at home gym experience smart lifestyle 6147

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the fittest one of all? The answer could be you, if you picked up the Mirror, a smart fitness mirror that displays workouts on its panel. You can watch yourself as you work out to make sure you're keeping up the proper form throughout. On October 8, Mirror announced that it would provide personal one-on-one training at just $40 per session. After the initial $1,495 for the Mirror itself -- and a $39 per month subscription for the 70-plus live classes each week -- that's a pretty penny, but still more affordable than personal trainers at most gyms.

For those without a Mirror, it sports a 40-inch display and resolution of 1080p, which means you can easily see your trainer. The 5-megapixel camera means they can easily see you, too. Built-in speakers and a microphone let you have a conversation with your trainer. It's almost like they're right there in your living room with you. When the Mirror isn't it use, the audio and microphone shut off and it looks just like any other mirror, which means your personal trainer won't be privy to any late-night Cheetos binges.
