VAHA S Fitness Mirror
Who needs to go to the gym when it could come to you. That’s the idea of the Vaha S Fitness Mirror, giving you a full size mirror that can play over 850 workout classes, and connect you with personal trainers in real time.
The mirror is a 32-inch Full HD touchscreen, complete with 30W speakers and a brushed metal finish.
While this is without doubt one of the more impressive home workout options, it is also not cheap.
