Tools to Make Indoor Training Actually Fun


Cold weather doesn't mean you have to forgo hard workouts. Keep your edge with these four indoor training tools.


Émonda S 4 Road Bike

In French, émonder means “to pare down,” and Trek did just that to the carbon tubes of its Émonda S 4 road bike. The frame is stiff but forgiving, with the feel of a high-end racing steed at an entry-level price.

Price $1,499

Sol Republic Relays Sport Earphones

Sol Republic’s Relays Sport earphones demonstrate the principle that simpler design is often better design. The spongy tips keep the low-profile buds snug during runs and are comfortable enough for podcast binges.

Price $50

Prana Transformation Mat

So well do toes stick to the grippy nylon surface of Prana’s Transformation mat, we’re able to add inches of extension to our down dog. And with the elegant print, it can easily double as a throw rug.

Price $59

Kinetic Road Machine Smart Trainer

Kinetic brings strength conditioning to your garage workout by adding a power sensor to its Road Machine Smart trainer. It syncs with Strava and the company’s own Kinetic Fit smarthpone app.

Price $409
