Workout classes are a great way to stay motivated while shaping up, but if you have a busy schedule or are a parent — or are wary of public places in the midst of the current world health crisis — it’s hard to rationalize hitting the gym. All those dilemmas go out the window, however, with Mirror.

Brynn Putnam, the founder of Mirror and Refine Method, created this at-home interactive workout. It’s simple to set up, even in a small apartment. The full-length mirror turns into an LCD panel with stereo speakers, a camera (that can be shut off) and microphone. Roll out a yoga mat or hit the carpet in front of the mirror and select one of the 50-plus workouts that launch weekly.

To work out, open up the app and pick from either live or recorded sessions. Top-notch personal trainers with diverse backgrounds add a variety of new content weekly. Each “class” also includes modifications, so if you let the app know you’re injured, a separate video will pop up.

Whether you prefer cardio, strength, yoga, pilates, barre, boxing or stretching, there’s a workout for you. Classes range in length from 15 to 60 minutes. Mirror comes with a Bluetooth heart rate monitor so you can truly track how hard you’re working and achieve your goals. After each class, you can rate how strenuous it was and what you thought of the trainer so the app can personalize its suggestions to you.

The entire machine is $1,495 with a $250 white glove delivery, and then a $39 monthly subscription, and up to five people in one household can share a membership.
