SALT LAKE CITY -- When winter hits and outdoor temperatures drop, motivation to go to the gym can be hard to find. Fortunately you don't have to leave your home to stay fit.

Anna Nemeckay, fitness director at the Silver Mountain Sports Club in Park City, shared some exercises that can be done in the comfort of our own homes.

She showed a TRX suspension training system. It was developed by Navy SEALS and costs around $200. "It's an incredible piece of equipment -- super simple, very easy to use and any level of fitness can use it," she said.

Nemeckay said it has endless uses, including basic push ups, squats or lunges. Users can change the level of difficulty.

A more economical option is a large ball. She suggests push ups with feet on the ball. "If that was too hard you bring the ball closer to the knee and that makes it a little easier," she said.

"A lot of people will sit on the ball and this is their basic exercise, abdominal. But you can use the ball in all sorts of ways," she said. Holding the ball forces you to use your core muscles, she added.
