It’s Time to Exercise!

Figuring out whether to work out in the morning, afternoon, or evening.

Are you the type of person to pop out of bed as soon as your alarm goes off and head to the gym before the sun comes up? Or maybe you have more energy in the evening and stop by the gym on your way home from work. Whichever time you choose, you’re more likely to stick to a workout plan if you make it part of your everyday routine.

If exercise is not a daily habit for you and you’re wanting to set aside time each day to workout, you may be wondering about the best time to hit the gym. As you make your decision, consider these pros and cons of morning, afternoon, and evening workouts.

Morning

Pros
Many people choose to exercise in the morning, before the day begins. This is great for morning people, since with a morning workout, you’re less likely to procrastinate or to have distractions and conflicts get in the way. But that’s not all! A workout in the morning boosts your feel-good hormones that improve your mood. You’re energized and motivated to meet the day’s challenges. And when exercise is your first priority, you’re more likely to continue making healthy choices for the rest of the day.

Cons
If you’re not a natural morning person, the thought of working out early isn’t appealing. Because to get in a morning workout, you’ll have to wake up early. People who struggle to get out of bed no matter what time it is will find it hard making morning workouts a habit. Exercising in the morning means you need a longer warm up period to get your muscles and joints prepped for activity. You may also find you exercise best after a meal or at least a nutritious snack, meaning you need to wake up even earlier.

Afternoon

Pros
With an already busy schedule, hitting the gym during lunch break is a great way to work out without finding the time in your day to do it. Work out in the afternoon and suddenly your mornings and evenings become free for other commitments. Additionally, mid-day workouts can help energize your body and brain after lunch to help keep you productive for the rest of the day.

Cons
A lunchtime workout has tight time restraints. As a result, you may find it hard to fit in an effective workout during your lunch hour. This is particularly true when you factor in the time it takes to travel to and from the gym, change in and out of your workout clothes, and actually eat lunch. (Remember—you need to fuel up after working out!)

Evening

Pros
Why choose an evening exercise program? After a long day, working out in the evening can help you blow off steam, manage stress, and reduce anxiety. You may feel most energized in the evening, making it an ideal time to get an effective workout. By this point in the day, your muscles and joints are warmed up and more flexible from moving around. Therefore, you don’t need to spend as much time warming up. And since you don’t have to rush through your workout to get to work on time, you can spend more time exercising.

Cons
People who exercise within an hour or two before bed may find it harder to fall asleep at night. This occurs because high-intensity exercise energizes your mind and body, making it take longer to unwind in the evening. Also, waiting until the evening to workout means you’re more likely to run into distractions or last-minute conflicts that keep you from exercising. And after an entire day of putting off exercise, you may be tempted to keep procrastinating until it’s too late. With gyms typically being the most crowded in the evenings, it may be tricky to get a full workout in. Besides, wait too late, and your gym may be closed for the night.
