Anthony Jones says:

Moderation is perhaps the governing concept for a Christian view of bodybuilding/weightlifting. First Timothy 4:8 teaches, “For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come” (emphasis added). Physical fitness is important, and as this verse states, it does have some value. We are physical and spiritual beings, and the condition of the physical body undeniably can impact the spirituality of a person. Surely part of “glorifying God in your body” (1 Corinthians 6:20) is keeping it in reasonably good physical condition. Bodybuilding can definitely be a part of a Christian’s physical fitness program.

At the same time, as with many things in this life, bodybuilding, if taken to the extreme, can become an idol. Eventually, a point is reached where there is no true value in adding more muscle. Bodybuilding/weightlifting can become an addiction and/or obsession. While this is much more often an issue with men, it can be an issue for women as well. Striving for bigger and stronger muscles, taken to the extreme, is nothing but vanity (1 Samuel 16:7; Ecclesiastes 1:2; 1 Peter 3:4). Once we allow our physical appearance to become more important than our relationship with God, it has become an idol (1 John 5:21).

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). The key question is does bodybuilding/weightlifting glorify God? If it is done to increase fitness, strength, and tone, and thereby health, yes, it can be done for God’s glory. If it is done out of vanity and pride, or from an unhealthy obsession with getting bigger and stronger, no, it does not glorify God. How should a Christian view bodybuilding? “‘Everything is permissible for me’—but not everything is beneficial. “‘Everything is permissible for me’—but I will not be mastered by anything. . . . ‘Everything is permissible’—but not everything is constructive” (1 Corinthians 6:12; 10:23).

Gian Giorgio Trissino
Both I and J were used interchangeably by scribes to express the sound of both the vowel and the consonant. It wasn't until 1524 when Gian Giorgio Trissino, an Italian Renaissance grammarian known as the father of the letter J, made a clear distinction between the two sounds.

I only came for 3:39 😂

Monica Murphy says:

Works in front of a regular mirror too. Saves 1500 dollars too.

ri so says:

I'm looking forward to the full review!

Tina S says:

Besides the reflection. What does this do. I can watch workout.videos o n my tv

Marc Sherman says:

very cool idea. probably will do very well with commercial contracts. Monthly fee probably flies in NY and California. Nowhere else though. Should come with a standard base of non-live workouts at no cost and permanently available as a memory stick/card plug in to the screen. Save the monthly fee for live instructors. At that point, you can profit away for a $120 40 inch LCD monitor plus $100 for the custom inards at the $1495 price. Otherwise, IPad plus larger mirror wins here.

People will push their self at the gym more when people are watching and it's less expensive 🏋

LivSimple says:

For that price to get in, you’d think they could get away with $20 a month for the subscription…It’s nice…I’d like one, but think I’ll hold off for Mirror 2.

tlcman1959 says:

So is it unbreakable??

Sher Anki says:

So, a money grab regardless. I love the concept, but, I work out alone and this just screams interaction. Also, requires monthly subscription. Another workout tool that you have to hunt for the offline options to use it by yourself.

Stan Franks says:

I've got a question? What happens if the company goes belly up? Will you be left with a $1500 dollar mirror? It's not like buying a treadmill and the company goes belly up. You can still use the treadmill.

Dwayne Wood says:

Wow $1500 plus a monthly subscription no thanks!

Brett Fisher says:

So many cynical comments. We get it, you think you're clever. If someone wants to, and can afford to, pay $1500 to exercise, then that's better than not exercising. The idea of saving the gym commute time, and not having to find, think about, or curate work out videos…instead all provided in a single package – is attractive. If you cant afford the price, or want to do all that prep yourself, go for it. You can buy a burner flip phone for lots less than an iPhone…..you can look up all that smart phone info on your laptop and still make calls with a burner phone. But i'd bet most the cynics here use a smart phone that cost them $700+ Convenience in one package, via technology, is what you're paying for.

Gavin Ovsak says:

You can't compare this to a Gym membership and say it's saving money. Gyms come with weights, machines, treadmills, etc which this doesn't come with at all.

Me: Reads the title

Motherhood with Monica says:

Can you get the app without the expensive mirror? Lol

Kyle Schultz says:

Mirror blocked both me and my wife on Facebook and twitter for posting our experience with their shitty customer service and bots. The website states the your should bet you $1500+ product in roughly 10 (business) days. 3 days to contact you on and 7 for delivery. After a week, my wife tried contacting them because we had heard nothing from them. Their garbage bots kept responding with automated message about holiday demand and never could give us a delivery date. Finally they are currently estimating over 2 months for delivery and the website still days 10 days.
We posted on their social accounts, I guess they don't like when people highlight the real experience.
I am temped to wait for delivery just to force them to come back to pick it up during the 30 day trial on principle alone…. shittiest customer service I have ever experienced. Not what you would expect from a faux luxury product targeting high income individuals.
We also have the a peloton… awesome service all around and awesome classes. Take your money and go with the peloton 100%.
