I wanted to find an image that showed someone making the most of an outdoor space, and I loved this one.

Exercise is one of the best things you can do for yourself, and sometimes going outside or to the gym to work out is a welcome escape. Other times, it's cold out or you just really would like to work out in a T-shirt full of holes in front of your favorite dumb TV show with the volume cranked up as loud as you want. A piece of workout equipment in your home is there for you in exactly those moments.
