After using it for a month, I think the Mirror by Lululemon might be the best home gym equipment machine I’ve ever tested. I’ll admit I was skeptical at first — the world of workout mirrors seemed to prioritize aesthetics over the fitness experience — but I’m officially a believer.
I started testing the $1,495 Mirror, which first debuted in 2018, at a time when quick, versatile workouts make the most sense for my schedule and wellness goals. I had demoed Tonal not long before, and while it’s a gym membership-replacing beast of a machine, it still intimidated me a bit. The Fiture fitness mirror felt more my speed, but as a newcomer to the home fitness industry, the class catalog didn’t yet have enough to offer.
So far, the Mirror has mostly everything I look for in a home gym. Though I can’t say it’s revolutionized my relationship with fitness, it has introduced me to certain workout styles that make me feel stronger. Though, with anything I test, there are few things I wish were different. Here are the biggest takeaways from my month-long experience, from my favorite features to what I’d want to see change.
