Brains and Brawn: Smart Fitness Gear for the New Year – Mansion Global
We know this is the year when you’re finally going to take that New Year’s fitness resolution seriously. But 2022 presents you with another set of challenges.
Since many of us have given up on gym membership and social fitness, we have to rely on home exercise options, as well as outdoor activities to stay in shape. Fortunately, there are more smart devices than ever to make fitness fun and efficient. Here is our pick of the best smart fitness options for 2022:
Tempo Studio Pro
A constellation of 3D sensors inside this beautiful reflective unit follow your movements. You get instant feedback on your form, which can lead to more effective and safer workouts. The Tempo looks like a giant tablet, and its compact design stores weights under its rectangular mirror / monitor. Studio Pro, the fully loaded model, includes a folding squat rack, weight plates, dumbbells, kettlebells, and even a workout mat. Since Tempo Studio is a stand-alone device, you don’t need to drill any holes to install it. A $ 39 monthly membership provides access to coaches and live lessons. If you’re looking for a budget option, Tempo just announced a package that includes a smaller selection of weights and connects to your TV through the Tempo iPhone app.
Tempo Studio Pro is available for $ 3,495
After a year like this, you sometimes feel like hitting something. FightCamp lets you channel that energy into high-intensity workouts that provide a break from the clip-clop of running or the boredom of lifting weights. Equipment includes standing punching bag, gloves, Punch Trackers show you progress and stats in real time, on any iOS and Android device. Through its app, FightCamp’s trackers also calculate the output using a proprietary algorithm to combine intensity, speed and technique. You can choose fights based on your boxing skills and fitness level. If you’re Type A, check out the app’s leaderboard to see how your score compares to other members of our growing community. Face off against each other, “or fight your way to the top,” urges FightCamp.

Rowing Tough Series Rowing Machine
Row, row, row your boat … shaped like a killer this year. Among smart rowers, Rowing’s unique selling proposition is anti-boredom games and competitions on its 22-inch touchscreen. One of them, Row Breaker, is inspired by Atari’s classic ‘Breakout’ game from the 1970s, using rowing to perform superhero-type tasks, or a racing game where your shots power cars. Coached programs and virtual rowing setups, like deep sea visuals, also help prevent workouts from descending into training boredom. Bonus: The Bluetooth-enabled Tough is designed for a weight limit of 507 pounds, and its 16 resistance levels climb to a maximum of 100 pounds.
Rowing Tough is available for $ 2,499.
