When is the Best Time to Exercise

Different people like to exercise at different times of the day, and there are benefits for both! The main thing is that we are doing some exercise at all, as this is always going to be better than none.  The main reasons people like to exercise in the morning are:

  • increase metabolism
  • burn more fat
  • wake up quickly
  • get it DONE

The benefits of exercising during the evening are:

  • can spend longer
  • wind down before bed
  • better sleep
  • no need to rush

As you can see, there will be different reasons to choose either morning or evening.  Personally, we like to get it done in the morning, as this means we can say we have done it before we start work.  No making excuses and chickening out when we are tired after work!
