Looking to get fit in time for Spring break?

With spring break right around the corner, I’m making all my free time about fitness. I love getting in a good workout, but I enjoy it even more when I’m actually seeing results. 💪

I’ve been having a blast using the programs on Tempo Move! It’s the latest (and most fun 🙃) addition to my workout routine over the last 3 months. In the past, I’ve had a hard time sticking with at-home workouts, but I can confidently say Tempo Move has workouts that are fun and engaging. They motivate me to reach my goals in time for Spring break with a Florida trip coming up in April.

What’s the Tempo Move?

If you’ve been on any social media platform (or even just watched television), you’ve likely heard the buzz about Tempo! It is one of the most popular and effective home workout programs around. I’ve had my eye on it for a while, but I was a little deterred by the $1,995 price tag.

Luckily, I found a way to enjoy the same Tempo at-home workout experience for $1,600 LESS!

In awe of the incredible real-time technology of Tempo Studio but aren’t looking to shell out for the 4-digit dollar amount? The Tempo Move is the answer to your fitness and wallet woes. It comes in at a MUCH more affordable price, especially with an extra $100 off!

What’s the catch?

The way I see it, virtually nothing — you’re just cutting out the addition of the “mirror”. With the Tempo Move you still get:

✅ Real-time guidance & access to workouts
✅ Progress tracking
✅ Beautiful space-saving smart equipment

To top it all off, I don’t have to worry about sharing my Tempo Move with strangers as I would with gym equipment. Not to mention, the minimal style and lack of bulky equipment fit perfectly with my minimal aesthetic.

Note: You do need a TV screen and select iPhone XS / XR or higher to use it. Tempo move is NOT compatible with Android at this time.

All that being said, nothing is perfect, right?

The Tempo Move comes with 35 pounds of Smart Weights, two 7.5 lb. dumbbells and four weight collars, the Tempo Core, a modular weight storage cabinet, and an HDMI cable. However, it does not come with the dark blue 10-lb weights you’d get with the Tempo Studio. You can buy those separately, but it’s worth mentioning just in case! Personally, I don’t think they’re necessary because the 25 lb total max weight for each side is more than plenty for me. 😉

Also, using Tempo does require a monthly $39.95 subscription for continued access to workouts, classes, and form feedback. Granted, that’s still way less than the price of most personal trainers.

Speaking of the classes…

There are TONS to choose from, and more are being added every day! In fact, I recently received an email that they brought on another new trainer, so I can’t wait to give some of her classes a try. Sort through all the offerings based on their class categories, or you can filter by workout type, difficulty, duration, trainer, or muscle group. In fact, it’s pretty hard not to find something that doesn’t suit your workout style. 😆

Another winning feature? The aesthetics! 😍 Can you spot the home gym in the pic above?

Not only am I loving the health aspect of Tempo, but I’m swooning over with how seamless an integration this weight set fits in my home, which is all thanks to the modular cabinet! It measures just 2 ft. high and 1.6 ft. deep, and it comes in both light and dark color options.

The simple and sleek design of this cabinet has totally complemented the aesthetic of my home. One of the reasons I worried about ordering fitness equipment in the past is that I had nowhere to store it all. I also definitely didn’t want to leave the weights out in the open and clutter my living room floor.

It’s comforting that Tempo kept actual users in mind while considering where we would store these weights and supplying a resolution. No need to stress about what equipment to use when working out and where to store it. Tempo Move includes all the solutions to my previous hesitations!

Besides the SIGNIFICANTLY lower price than the original Tempo Studio, here are a few more things to love about the Tempo Move:

  • It saves even MORE space! As I mentioned, bulky workout equipment is such an eyesore. The beauty of Tempo gadgets is that they eliminate the need to transform an entire spare bedroom or the garage into an at-home gym. The Tempo Move leaves an even smaller footprint (perfect for all you minimalists out there)! All equipment is stored directly inside the eye-catching, modular cabinet.
  • Use what you already have + advanced smart equipment. We all LOVE the idea of having smart equipment, but using what we already have (an iPhone and TV) makes us feel a little more resourceful. 3D Tempo Vision syncs up with your devices to provide accurate tracking, rep counting, guidance, and much more.
  • Get real-time guidance just like a personal trainer. Rest assured, with the Tempo Move, you’re still getting real-time voice guidance that gives you feedback on your form. It also motivates you through your reps and tells you when you’re ready for the next level and which weights to use. Plus you can enjoy up to 6 memberships on one account for even more bang for your buck. My boyfriend is very happy he can jump onto my account for workouts when I’m not home! 😄
  • Choose between live and pre-recorded videos. I used the prerecorded videos as I’ve just started out, but if live sessions motivate you more, you can join in with others in real-time!

switching out tempo weights

I can honestly say I haven’t had as much success with any home workout plan as I have since I started using Tempo Move.

I’ve always been pretty hesitant to ever try using weights heavier than 7 or 8 pounds. But having the weight recommendations for each class and a plethora of adjustable options at my disposal, I use 12.5 lbs in each hand (the barbell itself is 7.5 lbs) without thinking twice.

Since the barbel itself is weighted, I don’t feel the same pressure of picking out an actual 12.5-pound weight. Maybe it’s just my subconscious, but this has made me more confident as I stack my weights. Switching out the weights to match your abilities as your strength develops is super easy, too!

After about 3 months of consistently using Tempo Move, I’m on my way to being Spring-break ready!

I’m blown away that in such a short period of time I’m seeing such definition and toning on my arms. Even more important, I feel stronger and much more energized. I’m so impressed with my ability to use heavier weights, and I know that’s only going to continue.

And if I’m feeling really ambitious, I can bring my work out on the go! To make the most of Tempo any place and any time, I simply remove the Tempo Move core and HDMI cables from the storage unit. Then I can bring them on the trip to connect to the TV at the Airbnb. While I won’t have the weights at my disposal, there are SO many classes that utilize bodyweight to still great workout without them. 👊
