A Pro home gym experience with a new squat rack and bench + more weights - the Pro bundle!

What does personalized, at-home fitness mean to you? For me, it’s finding a fitness routine that fits my needs, preferences, and space. It’s striking the right balance between having fun and getting results.

So when I heard that Tempo launched three bundles; Tempo Starter, Tempo Plus, and Tempo Pro, along with their newly expanded companion app, I was elated. You can now purchase a Tempo bundle that’s packaged with the accessories that suit your needs and fit your personal fitness goals. 

Plus, you can count on continued motivation and support through My Plan, included within their mobile app, where you’ll have access to weekly workout plans that are tailored to you and your goals. Tempo has made working out fun, convenient, and customized to your needs, eliminating the guesswork that often leads to analysis paralysis and giving up on your goals.

When I first wrote my Tempo home gym review, I was just getting started with weight training. Now, it's helped me take my weight training to new heights.

In this article, I’m reviewing all three Tempo Bundles and helping you to choose which bundle is best for you and your fitness journey.

Tempo Home Gym New Accessories and Equipment

In conjunction with the launch of their Bundles, Tempo is debuting its new folding squat rack, folding bench, kettlebell system, and heavier weight storage - all of which are designed to take your workouts to the next level, should you decide that they are aligned with your goals. The Tempo team spent the last year designing their newest accessories, ensuring that the final product meets the same quality standards as the Tempo Studio and addresses the needs of their community.

It’s evident that Tempo is committed to ensuring that their customers are able to workout from home safely, effectively, and with minimal space. Let’s dig into the new accessories a bit more before taking a look at the bundles.

Tempo Folding Squat Rack

A squat rack will allow you to train safely at home without another person as your spotter. Essentially, a squat rack serves as a mechanical spotter. It also helps you to be able to lift heavier weights, which is key in progressive overload and muscle gains.

Tempo’s squat rack is a modern take on the traditional, bulky rack. It’s sleek, rugged, space-efficient, and foldable for easy storage with your Studio. The folding squat rack can hold up to 400 lbs.

Tempo Folding Bench

The inclusion of a workout bench will help you to maintain a safe workout space, but it also allows for more versatility with your exercises. A workout bench provides support as well as the opportunity to isolate and work specific muscle groups safely like your chest through presses and flies.

This bench is sweat-proof and doubles as a step, eliminating your need for additional equipment. It, too, easily compacts for discreet storage and can also accommodate 400 lbs.

Tempo Kettlebell System

Kettlebells are one of the most versatile pieces of fitness equipment you can buy, but they are traditionally pretty bulky and come as a fixed weight. Tempo created a kettlebell system that allows for personalized weight selection using the plates that come standard with your Studio.

With this sleekly designed kettlebell system, you can easily add or remove weights to customize your workout experience, all without the bulk and hassle of traditional kettlebells.

Heavier Weights + Storage

Heavier weight plates are not new to Tempo, these were released and made available last year, however, the dedicated storage for them is new.

Tempo users have the option to get heavier premium Olympic plates that come in 25 lb or 45 lb options.

These plates feature the same steel disc inserts, raised flanges and unmatched durability that you’ll find on the original Essentials Plate Bundle. However, the heavier plates do not store in the included cabinet, which is where the newly released heavier weight storage comes into play.

The Weight Plate Storage System allows you to pack away your extra weights while still maintaining a sleek, modern look and low profile in any room in your home.

Tempo’s Class Expansion and Mobile App Improvement

Tempo has not only stepped up their game when it comes to their accessories and equipment, but they have also expanded the fitness experience for their users, adding new categories and a revamped mobile app.

In addition to their original lineup of workouts, they now offer modalities like yoga and cardio boxing. These two new workout styles allow for more inclusion and variety for Tempo users. Furthermore, they refreshed their mobile app so that it now works synchronously with the Tempo Studio.

Now, Tempo users can workout from home using their Tempo Studio, or take their workouts on the go and seamlessly maintain their fitness while they’re away from home with app exclusive bodyweight and band workouts. This new app integration promotes consistency and healthy habits that will last. When it comes to reaching fitness goals, consistency is key, and Tempo is making it easier than ever to remain consistent with your plan, even when you’re on the go.

Tempo Bundles: What Are They and What’s Included?

Now that you know what’s new and exciting in the Tempo world, let’s take a look at their carefully curated bundles and what each has to offer.

What’s Always Included With the Tempo Home Studio?

All three Tempo bundles - Tempo Starter, Tempo Plus, and Tempo Pro - are all built with the same high-end materials as the original Tempo Studio, so no need to worry about a decline in quality to accommodate different accessory tiers. In fact, one could argue that there’s a lot more value now thanks to the additional accessory options and customizations available.

So as far as quality is concerned, there is no change whatsoever. You can still expect the same innovative technology like the 3D sensors and the AI Personal Coaching Engine that’s completely unique to Tempo. Additionally, every Studio, regardless of which bundle you choose, will include the following:

  • Personalized weight recommendations
  • Rep counting
  • Real-time form correction
  • 42” interactive HD touch screen
  • Cabinet with competition-grade weights ranging from 1.25-10 lbs
