As per The New York Times, membership at the new fitness studio will be $39 per month, and this will give members access to thousands of streaming and in-person workout selections. There will be special discounts and perks exclusive to members when they buy apparel and other items at Lululemon stores.

Thus, they are expanding their offering with Lululemon Studio, which is supported by Mirror’s interactive technologies.
