With all the snow and cold recently, many people don't want to get their exercise outdoors or even drive to the gym. 

There are a couple of options for working out indoors depending on what equipment and space you have at your disposal.  If you have no equipment then you have limited options, but exercise is very possible. 

The following is a routine that has elements of cardio and strength training wrapped into one workout.  The whole routine should take about 30-40 minutes.  If parts of it are too difficult, modify them to fit your current fitness level.  Some modifications might be adding or subtracting push-ups or marching in place instead of jumping jacks.

Segment 1:

20 jumping jacks, 5 lunges, 20 jumping jacks, 5 lunges, 20 jumping jacks
