The Latest Home Gym Tech to Improve Your Work(out)-From-Home Experience

New Home Gym Technology

New York City gyms closed their doors when the pandemic hit. Active New Yorkers were stuck at home and restless, so they sought out new ways to get exercise while staying inside via home gym tech. Products like Peleton and Mirror gained popularity. Through their innovative technology, they created effective home workouts using low profile equipment perfect for small spaces like NYC apartments. Even now that the city’s gyms have reopened, smart home gym tech is here to stay.

If you are shopping for new home gym technology, then you will want to balance several factors before making your purchase: price, size, programming, quality, and more. Here is our guide to the best new home gym tech, with everything you need to know about these popular smart home workout devices.

Best Smart Home Treadmill

Treadmills are tried and true home gym staples, but new technology is bringing this classic into the smart-home era. Here are the best smart treadmills for the money.

NordicTrack Commercial X22i

The Commercial X22i is NordicTrack’s award-winning incline treadmill. It features a 22 inch smart HD touchscreen, which displays beautiful scenery from around the world. As NordicTrack’s iFit trainers take you through a guided workout, you will feel like you are really running outside.

These iFit trainers control the speed and intensity of your workout, auto-adjusting the incline up to 40%, and a decline down to -6%. This hands free adjustment is as close as you can get to going on a real outdoors jog while staying in the comfort of your own home.

The Commercial X22i’s screen also gives you access to the whole host of iFit workouts offered by NordicTrack, including yoga, and HIIT. This makes the Commercial X22i a great choice for runners who want to cross train without investing in a second piece of home gym technology.

  • Price: $3,499 + optional iFit subscription. 30 day iFit trial included with purchase.
  • Dimensions: 70” L x 39” W x 72.5” H Footprint
  • Best for: Serious runners who want access to exercise classes.

NordicTrack Commercial 1750

If NordicTrack Commercial X22i’s price tag is a little too much for you, or if you want a more straightforward workout experience, then consider the Commercial 1750 instead. The Commercial 1750 is about $1,000 less expensive, and is NordicTrack’s best selling treadmill.

The Commercial 1750 can incline up to 15% and decline down to -3%. It features a 14in smart touchscreen that can pivot so that you can watch it while not on the treadmills. This is great since the Commercial 1750 also gives you access to the iFit classes and trainers.

Its space saving design is great for NYC apartments: when you are done with your workout, you can fold it up to reduce its footprint. With its sleek design, host of features, and reasonable price tag, it is no wonder Runner’s World named it the best overall treadmill.

  • Price: $2,499
  • Dimensions: 80” L x 38” W x 65” H Footprint
  • Best For: Runners who want a high quality smart treadmill for a reasonable price.

Best Smart Home Bike

Peloton helped to put smart home gym tech on the map, but more and more, there are new options for at-home spin. Here are our picks for best smart home bikes.

Peloton Bike

The Peloton Bike is still one of the best smart home bikes on the market. The company’s flagship product, the Peloton Bike comes with a 22 inch HD touch screen, Apple Watch compatibility, and in-workout health metrics to help you get the most out of each spin.

One of the best things about the Peloton Bike is its small footprint; it is even smaller than your average yoga mat, making it ideal for saving space while still getting a studio-class level workout.

And speaking of studio classes, Peloton offers a wide range of classes that you can watch on the 22 inch touchscreen, including cycling, HIIT, yoga, and boxing. New Yorkers who want to try out the Peloton Bike can go in person to their Manhattan West store to test it out before buying.

  • Price: $1,445 + monthly membership
  • Dimensions: 59″ L x 53″ H x 23″ W, 2’ X 4’ Footprint
  • Best For: Spin class enthusiasts who want convenient, intense workouts.

NordicTrack S22i Studio Cycle

NordicTrack’s S22i bike is great for people who prefer biking outside to spin classes. With its 22 inch HD touchscreen, the S22i takes riders on trips around the globe, showing workouts in beautiful scenery led by iFit trainers. Like with other NordicTrack home gym devices, the screen allows you to play any of their iFit classes with paid membership.

In addition to the outdoor images, NordicTrack’s S22i is also different from Peloton in that it inclines. The angle ranges from 20% to -10%, and automatically adjusts to match the terrain of what you are seeing on the screen.

  • Price: $1,999 + iFit subscription
  • Dimensions: 61” L x 22” W x 58” H Footprint
  • Best for: Cyclists who want to feel like they are riding trails outdoors

Best Smart Home Strength Training

Strength training home gym tech is in a period of new and exciting innovations, from Mirror to smart weights. Here are the best smart home strength training systems available on the market right now.

Peloton Guide

Peloton Guide is Peleton’s first foray into strength training tech. This home gym system turns any TV into an ai-powered personal trainer. Its cutting edge camera tracks your reps as you workout, displaying your movements on screen side by side with Peloton’s classes. This way you can check your form real time as you go through a variety of innovative workouts targeting different muscle groups.

Other benefits of Peloton guide? It is a small device that can easily fit on your TV console and installation is a breeze. It is also very reasonably priced compared to other strength training home gym systems.

Those with Apple Watch can enjoy cross compatibility, offering advanced metrics to help you get the most out of your workout and track your progress. Peloton Guide does not automatically include accessories like Peloton Dumbbells. However, they offer a variety of packages that can help you save significantly on a bundled home strength training system.

  • Price: $295 + monthly membership and any optional accessories
  • Dimensions: 6.5″ L x 2.5″ W x 1.7″ H
  • Best for: Strength trainers who want a flexible, inexpensive starting point


Mirror, now known as lululemon Studio Mirror, is a truly futuristic piece of home gym technology. When it is turned off, it looks like a sleek standing mirror, but when you turn it on, it becomes a full HD display. It plays home workout classes that guide you through everything from yoga to boxing to HIIT, all while showing your own reflection in the mirror.

There are over 10,000 lululemon Studio Mirror classes available to stream, taught by fitness experts in their field. Ballet, Tai Chi, Barre–if you can imagine it, there is probably a Mirror class to match. With over 60 genres of workouts and new, live classes daily, the possibilities are endless.

While Mirror takes up more room than Peloton Guide, it makes up for its footprint with style. The design is modern and unobtrusive, and can double for a full length mirror. Mirror has a variety of accessories that you can choose to add to your purchase, including lululemon Studio Weights, Ankle Weights, and Heart Rate Monitor.

  • Price: $995 + monthly lululemon Studio membership and optional accessories
  • Dimensions: 56.0″ H, 22.4″ W, 1.4″ D
  • Best for: Class enthusiasts who value quality design.


Tempo is one of the most customizable home gym systems on the market. It comes in three varieties: Core, Move, and Studio.

Tempo Core is an iPhone dock that you connect to your TV. Simply plug your phone into the dock, and Tempo Core will guide you through home workouts while using your phone’s camera to track your form. It automatically comes with adjustable weights, and you can add more accessories with Pro and Plus packages.

Tempo Move uses the same iPhone dock as the Core, but also comes with a minimalist console that stores your weights. The weight cabinet comes in two colors–light and dark–and is relatively compact at 22” H x 13.5” W x 13.5” D.

The main downside of the Tempo Core and Tempo Move sets is that it is not compatible with Android or iPads. You have to have an iPhone to use the system. However, this is solved with Tempo’s premiere home gym system–Tempo Studio.

Tempo Studio is a home gym console with a 42” touchscreen, built in weight storage, and 3D camera to track your movements. The sleek, space saving design comes in two colors–light and dark–and includes adjustable, color coded weights that the 3D camera automatically recognizes. No need to record your weights here. Additional accessories are available in the Plus and Pro packages.

  • Price: $245 for Tempo Core, $495 for Tempo Move, $1,695 for Tempo Studio + monthly membership and additional accessories.
  • Dimensions: 72” H x 26” W x 16” D for Tempo Studio
  • Best for: Those looking for a complete, customizable home gym system with built in weight storage.
