Mirror, mirror, on the wall… who’s the fittest of them all?

If you happen to be gazing into a smart fitness mirror, it’s def gonna be you.

These mirrors are the newest, most high tech workout equipment to hit the fitness scene (they MIGHT be from the future), and we’ve got the scoop on the best ones you should check out.

Here are our picks for the best smart workout mirrors of 2021.

Best smart workout mirrors for 2021

A workout mirror is probably the most futuristic piece of workout equipment you could get your hands on right now.

It’s a mirror with a built-in digital screen that allows you to both see your reflection AND follow along with the movements being performed on screen. It’s like having a personal trainer in the room with you whose movements you can mirror to get the form correct.

But they do so much more. Some fitness mirrors also come equipped with cameras, sensors, and accessories that can guide you through tailor-made workouts, auto-adjust weight and resistance, and track your progress.

Talk about fancy.

These mirrors are made for streaming fitness, and if you wanna do it, there’s a class for it: yoga, barre, weight lifting, cardio. (OK, we haven’t found a line dancing class that streams to fitness mirrors… yet.)

The variety and versatility you can get from this one piece of workout equipment is totally unmatched, and many models also allow you to buy additional accessories that sync with the mirror.
