With all the smart technology we have today there is no reason to leave your home to work out. You can design an amazing smart fitness system for your home. And, your smart home gym can be integrated with the rest of your home to make getting fit easier and more convenient.
A smart home gym is a feature new homebuyers are looking for. There are tons of advantages to having a smart home gym. We’ll discuss the advantages and the must-have features you’ll need to rock your smart home gym.
Must haves for a smart home gym
A gym wouldn’t be a gym without workout equipment. There are tons of smart home fitness products on the market now that make getting fit at home a breeze. These are a few of the most popular ones.
A smart treadmill provides you with an interactive experience. Unlike a basic treadmill, with a smart treadmill, you can track your progress, see which muscles you worked during your workout, and follow along with custom workouts. You can also connect your smart treadmill with a fitness app.
Peloton and NordicTrack are two of the most recommended brands of smart treadmills. These treadmills provide you with onscreen coaching and workouts. They can adjust the incline automatically based on your heart rate, the muscles worked, and the workout you choose.
As your cardio and strength improve, your treadmill workout will adjust to make your workouts harder or easier. For example, during the cool-down part of your workout, your treadmill will automatically decline.
Do you enjoy biking but don’t enjoy the snow, rain, or heat? A smart bike might be the best solution! It will allow you to work on your endurance without leaving your home. A bike is easier on your knees and joints than running on hard pavement but can provide you with awesome cardio benefits.
Like smart treadmills, you can use an onscreen workout to keep you focused and motivated. The workouts are great for keeping you on track with your fitness goals. Plus, you can see your progress through on-screen metrics and tracking.
Smart strength training system
Many people pay for a gym membership to have access to strength training equipment. This is not only inconvenient, but it’s not personalized for your needs. With a smart strength training system, your workouts are tailored to you. If you’ve ever wanted to hire a personal trainer, this is a great option for you. You can find smart strength training systems that come with free weights or cables.
Tempo and Tonal are two highly recommended brands of smart strength training equipment. Tempo comes with free weights that are stored conveniently in their system. And, Tonal is uses a cable system that allows you to work your muscles from different angles and resistance. Tonal’s smart home gym adjusts the resistance automatically in small one-pound increments so that you improve your strength safely and easily.
Smart home mirror
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fittest one of all? You are when you use a smart home mirror to do your workouts. Mirror offers a really cool interactive mirror that can be used as a full-length mirror when you’re not working out with it. Mirror provides interactive workouts for people of all fitness levels that you can do in the convenience of your home.
You can work out using their virtual classes or use the mirror to check your form. Like many of the other smart home gym equipment, you can track your calories burned and heart rate with it. This is an incredibly cool feature to add to your home gym!
Samsung 4k TV
What do 4k TVs have to do with fitness? Today, smart TVs offer tons of fitness features. You can add a 4k TV to your fitness routine and get fitness built in. Samsung has partnered with a number of fitness brands including Barre3, Jillian Michaels Fitness, and Fitplan to provide over 250 workouts. You can access all of their content, including workouts and wellness content right from your TV.
Advantages of Smart Home Fitness
You don’t have to pay for a gym membership to get a great workout. In fact, you can get a more effective workout at home, with a smart home gym. Allof the equipment at your gym is sweat on and abused. Plus, you’ll be more likely to get distracted and your workouts may take longer. There are quite a few advantages to working out at home with a smart home gym.
Convenience – The biggest advantage of a smart home fitness program is that you can do it conveniently and efficiently at home. There is no need to drive anywhere. This extra time can give you more time to work out, stretch, and finish your workout quicker.
Motivation and Coaching – If you’ve ever wanted a personal trainer, you’ve got it! With the smart home fitness equipment available, you will have built-in coaching and motivation. You can also work out virtually with friends. Get your bestie to be your accountability partner and work out together without having to meet up at a gym.
Track your progress - Most of today’s smart home gym equipment comes with interactive monitoring, such as tracking your calories burned, heart rate, steps, or which muscles were used. You can connect your equipment with a fitness tracker to get the most out of your gym. This can provide you with motivation and insight that is much better than guessing how effective your workout was based on how much you sweat.
Better form – When you go to a typical gym, you may have mirrors available to check your form. But, with a home gym, you can check your form while you work out. Plus, by following along with workouts you have a built-in instructor to show you how to correctly do the exercises.
Rock your smart home with a smart home gym
If you already have a smart home, integrating your home gym with the rest of your system is a piece of cake. But, if you don’t have an integrated smart home system, adding smart home technology to the rest of your home will make your smart home gym even better. With a Control4 system, you can easily control every device in your home including your lights, climate, and electronic devices.
This is a great feature that you won’t get at any gym. Have you ever gotten too hot and sweaty during a workout? With a smart home system, you can adjust the temperature in your room with a voice command so you don’t have to interrupt your workout to feel more comfortable. You can even set up reminders to keep you on track or automatically turn on motivational music to play through your home when it's time to work out.
