These vests also come with tiny pockets in them where you can add small weights as your fitness level improves.

These vests can be worn inside your clothes or even on top if you are home or at the gym. As they can be worn underneath regular clothes (though they may make you look bulkier) you never have to worry about not having the time or place to work out.
