I have preached over and over that in my experience, people are more successful in their fitness program when they exercise first thing in the morning. I still believe this to be true, but if you’re a “snoozer”, you have a reason to wait. If you are just starting to get back in the swing of a fitness routine, consider the benefits to working out morning versus evening to make the transition fit into your life a bit easier.
Working out in the later part of the day definitely has its advantages. I’d like to add, though, that people who work out in the evening need to be extra committed to avoid everyday distractions that can fill up your day and crowd out exercise. The most important thing to remember is to figure out what works best for you and commit to a routine. A few days turns into weeks turns into years. Before you know it, working out will be a part of your life and you will inspire others to do the same.
