Take your workout indoors this winter with gear that goes wherever you do.


by Eden Univer, Teen Vogue



There's nothing better than rolling out of bed and starting your workout. If you stock up on a few key pieces of equipment, there's no need to bundle up and head out into the cold for a frigid run or a trek to the gym. Many exercise gadgets are even tailored for small spaces, making it easier than ever to workout in your bedroom or dorm room. They're so portable that you can even bring a few pieces to a friend's room and share in the fitness fun.



Start with a few basics, and as you get more comfortable exercising in your own space, you can add more staples to your stash. Working out will become more fun than ever when you get to pick and choose what to use. You'll be getting your cardio in on a mini trampoline before you know it. Clear a space, grab your gear, and get moving!
