Morning or Evening? Which Is the Best Time To Workout?

How to Get up, Get Active and Make the Most out of Your Day! | Energetic | Dynamic | Hard-Working

There are so many views on when is the best time to eat, when is the best time to work out, don’t do this, do that.

I say there is no one size fits all and you have to do what feels right, what I am about to share with you works for me and If adopted I feel it can work for you too.

When is the Best Time to Exercise? 

I see and hear so much online talk about the 5:00 AM club and the 6:00 AM club, it’s annoying that so many preach their views. The problem and also the massive misconception with these so-called clubs is, if you don’t get up at five o’clock or six o’clock in the morning, then you’re a failure. I believe you’re either a morning person or an evening person and just because you don’t get up early doesn’t mean you are a failure.


I’ve employed people who like to stay up until midnight and get up at nine o’clock in the morning and start work for me at 10:00 AM. Me, personally, I like getting up at five o’clock in the morning and going to bed at ten o’clock in the evening. That is my routine and it works for me.

What I am a massive advocate of is, no matter what time you drag yourself out of bed, you should consider going and doing some form of exercise. Realistically, it can be anything. It doesn’t need to be a workout in the gym, or a massive weights session. It can be anything, a walk, a run, even running up and down the stairs, the key is to raise your heart rate for fifteen minutes to half an hour to give your body that kick starts it needs.


How to adapt your routine to get up in the Mornings? 

I’ve been getting up early for twelve years and I have some tips/advantages to the early morning gym sessions.

Not going to the gym between 4 pm and 8 pm as the evenings are the busiest time. You wait to get on machines, It’s a nightmare.

Starting in the morning you’re going to feel a bit groggy as it’s a big adjustment so do it gradually and ease yourself in with 1 day a week at first, then 2, then 3 until you get over the afternoon crash as your body adapts.

I like to start my day with a pint of water and a coffee before some exercise. The workout is a chance to get rid of the stress from the day before and getting yourself more focused for the day ahead. It’s a time to contemplate, reflect and review yesterday which sets you up for greater success.


When you change to this lifestyle, you can find you’re more creative. You can get more done. You’re more focused. You go into your day with a bit of adrenaline because you’re starting off that way. And on the other side of the coin, you’ll probably sleep better at night because, by the time you get to bedtime at night, you’re exhausted.

I’m confident that once you have made the adjustment to get up and get active you’ll thank me for it. It doesn’t matter whether you’re a morning person, whether you’re an evening person, start the day as you mean to carry on and push your boundaries, you’re going to find way more energy for life and become a lot more positive.


So, let me know in the comments below when you like to train and use your energy. I am massively interested in everyone’s opinion on how, when, why to train.
