The smart home is gunning for your fitness regime. In-home workouts have gone through various fads over the past few years (Wii Fit anyone?). Now, however, technology is upping its game and bringing personal training straight into your living room (or bedroom).

Mirror is an interactive home gym that works through - you guessed it - a mirror. Today, the company announced its launching one-on-one personal training for just $40 a session.

A 40-inch, 1080p vertical display, with a microphone and 5-megapixel camera built in (with a privacy cover), Mirror is a connected device that when not in use looks like a regular, full-length mirror.

Once you turn it on you control it through an iPhone app (no Android support yet), and can stream fitness class such as cardio, strength, yoga, and boxing, directly from the company’s NYC studio.

These can be live or on-demand, and the screen uses your personal fitness profile and your biometric data to optimize each workout. The service requires a $39 a month subscription, much cheaper than most gyms, but you’ll have to fork out $1,495 to buy the device.

The new feature, rolling out today, lets you use the device’s two-way audio and video capabilities to work directly with a personal trainer. Each session costs $40 - if you’re a member.

“We’re democratizing premium fitness experiences and giving anyone access to the best trainers, no matter where you live or how busy your schedule may be," says Brynn Putnam, Mirror's founder, and chief executive officer.
