MIRROR is so much more than a mirror.

Livestreamed workouts are an assumed trade-off: On one hand, you don't have to put on real clothes and leave your house. But on the other, you lose out on the personalized instruction you'd get from showing face.

A new device, MIRROR, is aimed to make streaming less of a one-way conversation. The digital mirror displays live and on-demand workouts including cardio, strength, yoga, Pilates, barre, boxing, and stretching. Unlike traditional streaming devices, MIRROR can tailor your workout to you personally and provide feedback based on your stats. (Related: These Boutique Fitness Studios Now Offer At-Home Streaming Classes)

How?! You set the mirror against or mount it on a wall. From there, you input your goals, biometrics, preferences, and injuries and it adjusts your workout accordingly. You can choose from over 50 new classes per week livestreamed from a New York studio, or play previously recorded classes on-demand. The instructor demos the moves right on the mirror, and their vocal instructions come through the device's stereo speakers. It can connect to your Apple Watch or a Bluetooth heart-rate monitor (one comes complimentary with your MIRROR purchase) to track your heart rate-and the device will actually encourage you to work harder if you're below your target heart-rate zone. If you tend to go beast mode in classes but half-ass your way through home workouts, the feature could be a game-changer. (Check out this livestreaming fitness platform that will change the way you exercise forever.)

It's not just the device that cheers you on: Your trainer can tell how you're doing and motivate you. "During a live class, I can see the information clients fill out in their intake survey along with the user's heart rate, where they live, and milestones of their experience (such as how many classes they've taken and their birthday)," says Alex Silver-Fagan, a Nike Master trainer who teaches classes on the device. Using that info, she can give shoutouts to users and encourage them to hit their heart-rate targets, she says. In the future, you'll be able to sign up for one on one sessions too and communicate with your trainer via the built-in microphone and camera, according to the company's site.

Bonus perk: Unlike other bulky pieces of workout equipment, this just looks like a regular mirror when you're not working out. So you can put it in your bedroom or living room without ruining the decor.

The mirror costs $1,495, and it's $39 per month for a streaming subscription. Pricey, but if you take a lot of à la carte boutique classes, you'll end up saving in the long run. It's available now at mirror.co.

Over the years I've tried many methods recommended by both my friends and family but none of them seemed to work out for me until I chanced upon this holy grail where I've lost almost 33 pounds in just 1 month trying it out! I can now fit in dresses two sizes down and receive many compliments from not only my lovely husband, but colleagues and girlfriends about how great I look right now! I'm here to share with you guys because I am really thankful and hope someone who also needs this can experience similar results as me! Here is the link to my holy grail method! http://bit.ly/flatbelly14dayfix

Looking for effective new workout videos that are COMPLETELY FREE? I'd recommend trying the FitOn app (fitonapp.com). This app has tons of high quality workouts from some well known, successful trainers. All styles - HIIT, cardio, yoga, stretching, etc. Trainers like Cassey Ho, Katie Dunlop, Jeanette Jenkins, Kenta Seki, Christine Bullock, and more. Classes range from 10-45 minutes with varying levels of intensity. Definitely recommend checking it out - seriously, no cost!

Do you want to get a body you can be proud of? Are you prepared to become one of the very few women who don't have cellulite? Be very careful what you answer, because you will become the target of insane envy from other women. Being there, done that. When I was overweight, I used to believe that my female friends were so nice and supportive, but when I achieved the body of my dreams, some of them turned nasty. Misery loves company, I guess. They probably didn't want me to become better than them. But, you know what? It was worth it! Read my story here ...==> http://bit.ly/cellulitecured

Earum nemo voluptas. 💖 Ever heard of the Keto diet? I started using the advice at WWW.KETOCOOKBOOK.ORG and lost 25 pounds of fat in a month! I’ve never lost weight so fast!! The Keto Diet really is amazing because it forces the body to always burn fat for energy — so you lose the fat and keep it off. If you want to lose some weight, I highly recommend using that website :) Check it out! Best of luck to you! 💖

After using this for many months in an indoor pool, 2-3 times a week, thought it might be useful to update my experience. This has operated flawlessly and has become part of my swimming routine. Aside from taking an extra 45 seconds to place the earbuds correctly, I have no complaints or issues... check this products here : http://boseworkout.com
