Instant replay: If you miss your fair-weather routine, go ahead and re-create it indoors. It's possible -- promise! Turn your road bike into a stationary one by mounting it on a CycleOps Magnetic Bike Trainer ($179, rei.com), or keep running sans trail with the Stamina InTone Jogger trampoline ($80, sportsauthority.com). And bring a touch of the outdoors inside to help you get your nature fix: Open up the shades and add some low-maintenance plants, like bamboo or ferns, to your exercise space, recommends trainer Ellen Barrett, creator of the Studio exercise DVDs. "They'll add some much-needed oxygen, not to mention a welcome touch of green, while you work out," she says.
Gear shift: Netflix it. For $9 to $17 per month, you can get an endless supply of fitness DVDs (find more than 1,000 exercise titles at netflix.com). One week do yoga, strength training, and kickboxing; the next, order Pilates, cardio sculpt, and belly dancing -- you may find your new sweat-session obsession!
