Reasons You Should Workout in the Morning

one // Feel Accomplished
Wake up and get moving. If working out is the first thing you do in the morning you will feel accomplished. You could do absolutely nothing the rest of the day and still feel like you got stuff done that day.

two // No Cramming
Most people squeeze in a workout after work and before dinner. If you wake up early when you have nothing else you can be doing besides sleeping you are most likely to not skip workouts. There are more obligations during the day than early morning.

three // bragging rights
Yea, I brag when I get up early and get a morning workout it. 

four // less caffeine consumption
For me, on the mornings I workout in the morning I skip the coffee. But I have read some articles that drinking coffee before a workout helps you burn more calories.

five // avoid crowds
I don't go to the gym in the mornings, just a 2-3 mile walk in my neighborhood but if you do go to the gym the mornings has the least amount of people.

six // healthier choices
When I have completed my workout in the morning, I am going to feel healthier and want to make healthier choices throughout the rest of the day. I try to make my workout benefit me rather than deciding to go out to lunch and waste all my calories I burned that morning on a burger, but try to extend my healthy choices for that day.

Check out my tips to help you workout in the morning here.

This has been my goal for so many years! I set my alarm almost every morning for it but very rarely make it. I feel so much better when I do though

Great tips! I have been trying to get in a morning workout a couple days a week so I am not rushing after work and it is so helpful!

I love my morning work outs. It is the only time of day I really have to squeeze in a good work out and I cant come up with any excuses that early not to LOL!

Yes, yes, yes!!! Love this list and agree with all of them. I wake up around 4:30 4-5 days a week. It started because it is the only time I can make it happen but there are so many other benefits as well.

#2 is the reason why I wish I could work out in the mornings! I'm not a morning person at all (even working out at 9am is tough, haha). So, yeah, I have to cram everything in after work which takes away from being able to relax at home!

These are all so true! I always make healthier choices throughout the day if I have worked out earlier.. it is just getting up to work out haha

These are so true!! I'm trying to start working out in the mornings now that I work a regular 9-5 instead of 7-3, because my body still wants to wake up before six. So why not workout? I do have to make sure that I chug a class of water before I go to bed and before I go to the gym though, or else I feel awful.
