POV: You’re a fitness addict stuck in a studio apartment. You can only have 1 piece of fitness equipment. Which do you choose?
If you value a diverse range of workouts to choose from… lululemon Studio
lululemon Studio (formerly Mirror) has an impressive variety of classes -- over 50 genres to choose from. If you’re someone who used to bounce around the city from barre to boxing classes, you can recreate the class experience from the comfort of your home. lululemon Studio's classes range from 5-60 minutes across all difficulty levels, and the class library has over 10,000 workouts to choose from (if you don’t want to take a live class). Plus, lululemon Studio has partnered with top boutique classes around the country (think Rumble, Y7, AArmy, and AKT) to bring streaming classes to the platform and that it's included in the same $39 membership fee). .
If you’re looking to build muscle or a long lean body… lululemon Studio
Not only does lululemon Studio have literally thousands of strength training and toning workouts to choose from, but they also have new “connected” weights (ranging from 1-35 lbs and $50-$200). You may be wondering, what are connected weights and why do I need them? These weights can track your reps, help correct your form, and recommend the appropriate amount of weight for you to use for each move. Spoiler alert: it turns out I could lift A LOT more weight than I thought I could. If you want a class that is more lengthening, lululemon Studio also has a great selection of pilates and barre classes. For all of the classes on The Mirror, you can see the moves you’ll be doing before you actually start the workout, so you’ll know what you’re getting yourself into.
If you are addicted to cardio… Peloton
Peloton has over 10,000 spinning workouts alone to choose from. Want to take a 20-minute Tabata ride? You can do that. Prefer a 90-minute endurance ride? No problem (but please don't sign me up for this). Peloton has over 10 types of spin workouts to choose from, taught by 25 different instructors, with classes ranging from 5-90 minutes in length, so I never get bored doing the same workout every day. Plus, the low-impact nature of spinning is great for your body and allows you to do it day in and day out (as someone that has had knee surgery before, this matters to me).
If size matters… lululemon Studio
The mirror takes up no space in any apartment. In fact, it actually can serve a double purpose as a full-length mirror. You’ll only need floor space in front of it to complete your workout, so you don’t have to worry about a bulky piece of fitness equipment in the middle of your kitchen.
