I’ve always been a little bit obsessed with fitness gear and gadgets. Even before the pandemic, I’d developed a habit of trying new fitness gear both at home and in the gym to see what’s actually worth the hype, and I’ve learned a lot since then. From VR workouts to hopping on the Peloton craze with a Bowflex C6 bike, my husband and I even built out a fully-equipped home gym in our garage prior to moving into the city, but thanks to downsizing, we’ve had to be a little more strategic about our space.

Compared to other fitness mirrors like Tonal, which have more of a gadget-y vibe, I loved how the FORME actually looked like an intentional part of my home decor, which was huge compared to other fitness equipment (like my spin bike) that eats up a lot of floor space.
Users have the option to customize their FORME Studio according to their preferences. I stuck with the basic package — which included the mirror itself, a yoga mat, heart rate monitor, cleaning cloth, and camera covers — but FORME also offers a barre add-on(opens in a new tab) (that includes a removable, real wood barre as well as barre socks and a barre ball) and a lift add-on(opens in a new tab) with …….
