They can be divided up into a number of different categories. Indoors and outdoors exercise and with or without special exercise equipment.

That is true for the most part. However, even when running or walking you should make sure that you wear the right kind of shoes - or you may injure your feet. Also, when bicyling you should wear a helmet. And of course, you need a jump rope to be able to go jump-roping!

For the most part though the indoor equipment is kind of expensive stuff. You may want to try some yard sales to see if you can find some of that equipment cheaper there first.
