This winter has been long. It's been cold. And, we've been stuck working out indoors for far too long — how many more uninspired 5Ks on the treadmill can we run?

While you can't necessarily try all these at home, you can check out your local aerial gym. Ahead, six incredibly unique workout moves for elegant, amped-up fun.
